5. Florian Thauvin- 7 Goals & 2 Assists
Florian Thauvin: "They clearly never gave me a chance over there. I arrived, I played two or three games as a starter, & then, in the fourth, our striker gets sent off & I end up up front against Arsenal. I don’t play there & there’s no miracle. Then, I never played again." #NUFC pic.twitter.com/jNfNxlnbkw
