Chiquinho (Olympiacos)

He possesses great acceleration, as a result, he is very comfortable going 1v1 in wider areas and attacking space in quite a direct manner. With his trickery he can create goal-scoring chances very easily and with his pace he creates a lot of trouble for the opponent team. He is also very good at passing and with his through balls, he helps the striker to score a lot of goals.

Moussa Diaby (Aston Villa)

His off-the-ball movements are the greatest threat to any opposition, Without the ball, the Frenchman tries to stay on the wings, which usually takes a defender or two out of position and leaves space open across the pitch for his teammates to exploit. Diaby is brilliant at creating spaces. However, he is equally good at exploiting those spaces, especially in and around the opposition’s goal.
