It’s already beyond the half-mark of season 2017-18 after witnessing a fair share of excitements, disappointments, joys and sorrows. Ranging from Ronaldo drop in form to the rise of Kevin De Bruyne, down is the best footballers today.
7. David De Gea
This is the best goalkeeper in the world right now; ever since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down, De Gea has been Red Devil’s best player; winning the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award thrice since 2014. If it wasn’t for him, the humiliation would have become frequent considering their defensive ugly records.
Praises would be incomplete without mentioning the solid performance versus Arsenal, where he made a whopping 14 saves, equalling the record for the most saves in a single league game held by Tim Krul and Vito Mannone.
6. Eden Hazard
Having been instrumental in Chelsea’s title-winning campaign last season, the Blues have fallen to the fourth place in the league and they will require him in every game if they want to seal a Champions League place for the next season.
5. Kevin De Bruyne
Kevin De Bruyne has been the engineer behind Manchester City’s swashbuckling brand of football. The Belgian, scoring 11 and assisted another 14 this season, is an integral part of a well-oiled squad under Pep Guardiola.
The Belgian midfielder is set to lay his hands on a number of accolades on both club and personal level this season. And if this was a list of midfielders, the Belgian would have scooped the first prize by a mile.
4. Edinson Cavani
The Uruguayan has become Paris Saint Germain’s talisman since the mighty Zlatan’s departure to Manchester United. Cavani has been benefited the most by the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The duo has been supplying him countless key passes this season.
As of now, Cavani has found the net 27 times in 32 games in all competitions. Adding a cherry on the cake, he also overtook Ibrahimovic as the club’s all-time leading goalscorer in January.
