1. I think the one who’s going to get the most shots on target is Raheem Sterling due to his bright start with the three lions and Cristiano Ronaldo because he’s a record breaker.

2. I guess the player who’s going to provide the most assists is whether Bruno Fernandes or Kevin De Bruyne due to their outstanding vision.
