Ronaldo & Salah: Who had had the most goal involvements in each Premier League season?

Cristiano Ronaldo was a goal-machine during his days with Man Utd

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne will be eyeing up a place in the Premier League record books on Sunday afternoon.

The Belgian midfielder is currently on 19 assists for the season, one behind the record tally set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in 2002/03.

With City playing Norwich on the final day of the 2019/20 campaign, it's pretty likely De Bruyne will match and surpass the Frenchman's enormous total.

The 29-year-old has also scored 11 goals in the Premier League this season which makes him the player with the most goal involvements on 30 - one ahead of Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

If the Belgian can retain top spot, he will join a very exclusive club and below, we've provided the player with the most goal involvements from every season since the Premier League's inception in 1992/93.

Van Persie, Ronaldo, Henry, Hasselbaink and Shearer are the five players to have had the most goal involvements in more than one season.

Amazingly, Henry has achieved the feat on FOUR different occasions, a reminder of why many consider the Frenchman to be the greatest player the Premier League has ever seen.

However, Shearer holds the record for the most goal involvements in a single campaign with 45 in 1994/95, although this was a 42-game season.

It's unsurprisingly Henry who leads the way in a 38-game season, with the Frenchman's haul of 44 in 2002/03 just ahead of Suarez's total of 43 from 2013/14.
