Ranking the 5 best players in European major leagues so far this season
We’re only two months into the 2021-22 campaign, but we can still cut the tension with a knife. Almost all of the big clubs seem ready to fight to their last breath and are banking on their stars to help them finish as high as possible.
The outsiders are also more determined than ever to do everything to dismantle the giants. Amid a sea of ââbetter players and eye-catching performances, some players have stood out, once again showing why they are rated so highly.
Today we are going to take a look at five footballers who have caught our attention this season. Now, without further ado, let’s find out the top five players from Europe’s top leagues this season.
Special mentions: Dimitri Payet (Marseille), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Michail Antonio (West Ham United), Lorenzo Pellegrini (AS Rome)
# 5 Kylian MbappÃ© – Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain fought extensively during the summer transfer window to keep their World Cup winner at the Parc des Princes. The player was of course keen to leave for Real Madrid, but he didn’t let the unrest outside the pitch affect his performance.
Kylian Mbappe’s professionalism has allowed him to become PSG’s most prolific striker, eclipsing Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Mbappe’s dazzling feet and sense of purpose have helped him score four goals and three assists in nine Ligue 1 games. He has also been very impressive in the Champions League, but this time as a creator.
In two games he provided two assists, one of which led to Lionel Messi’s first goal for PSG.
His total of 27 goals saw him win the Ligue 1 Golden Boot last season. Judging by his performances so far, the Frenchman looks set to repeat the feat in the 2021-22 season.
# 4 Robert Lewandowski – FC Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich sniper Robert Lewandowski has suffered a purple stain in the past two seasons. He has scored without a hitch in almost every game he has played for Bayern, becoming a serious contender for the Ballon d’Or.
Lewandowski has scored seven goals in as many Bundesliga appearances this season. In the Champions League, he has scored four goals in two games, including a double in the second half against Barcelona. Finally, in DFL Supercup, he scored twice to lead his side to a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund.
The former Dortmund man is 33, but he’s definitely not looking out of his depth. The Polish striker scored 48 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions last season.
It will be interesting to see if he manages to hit the magic number of 50 this time around.
