Players To Watch

Kevin De Bruyne

Once a Chelsea reject, Kevin de Bruyne is now one of the world’s best midfielders. De Bruyne has amassed 25 goals and 46 assists in 94 appearances for Belgium. The Manchester City midfielder is renowned for providing world-class assists and service for his attackers.

Kevin De Bruyne has lived up to his status and has already provided 13 assists in 19 games for Manchester City (throughout all competitions) this season. He can further solidify his status as one of the best midfielders as he is a key player for Belgium.

Hakim Ziyech

The Ajax superstar is definitely a player to watch out for. Ziyech did struggle to perform for Chelsea like he did at Ajax. Hakim Ziyech has scored 18 goals in 44 appearances for Morocco. Much of his goal contributions come in the Eredivisie.

Hakim has scored 79 goals and has 97 assists in the Eredivisie. The winger is certainly showing that he is getting back in the game. Moreover, Ziyech is the most important part of their attack and can score crucial goals as well.
