Introduced during the 2017/18 season, the Premier League Playmaker Award goes to the player who provides the most assists in the division.
The inaugural award was given to Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgian's 16 assists helped Manchester City accumulate a record 100 points in their maiden league title-winning campaign under Pep Guardiola.
Last season saw Eden Hazard take the prize after laying on 15 assists in his final season as a Chelsea player before sealing a dream move to Real Madrid.
Ahead of this season's big kick-off, we asked Google Cloud, Opta and Squawka to crunch all the numbers to produce a full script of the upcoming campaign.
So do the stats experts believe last year's runner-up, Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser, can go one better this time around?
Will Raheem Sterling maintain his remarkable form as Manchester City pursue a third successive Premier League title?
Could former assist king Mesut Ozil even rediscover his midas touch to inspire Arsenal's bid for a top-four berth?
Read on to find out who the boffins are backing - and when you're done, check out more from The Script.
