The telepathic understanding between teammates can be the difference between having a successful team, and one that promises a lot but fails to deliver.
According to WhoScored, three of our partnerships are among the top six duos in the league this season in terms of assists to a particular goalscorer.

- Who Is Vinai Venkatesham? The Man Stepping Up As Ivan Gazidis Leaves Arsenal
- Official: Ivan Gazidis To Leave Arsenal For AC Milan
- Revealed: How Much Manchester United Have Paid Alexis Sanchez Since His Move From Arsenal
The pair have given oppositions’ right-hand sides all kind of problems this season.
