The attack looked dormant but his return was a blow to PSG in Paris who were sank 2-1 in the Champions League first leg. He indeed deserves accolades.
His work rate in Tuchel's side is always commendable for he's got abilities, confidence and energy to unlock stubborn defences of prime clubs he plays against. His height makes him stable and agility to sprint with the ball and dribble past the opponents thus creating spaces and scoring chances.
His absentia from the team can mean a pothole that's hard to fill. He deserves being inclusive in this list.
