We are in the second half of the season so we already have a pretty good idea which players are worth keeping an eye on until the summer.
There was no shortage of the best performances this week, and it is our job at 90min rank in the top 15, but we need a little help.
Last week it was the turn of the Golden Globe nominees. This time, it’s up to the Screen Actors Guild.
“Everyone in this world is of three types: a good finisher, a bad finisher, and neutral.” (Peasant Elegy)
Haaland, everyone’s favorite half-cyborg, hasn’t scored too often recently, but has made up for it with some assists.
They posted their sixth of the season this week, but that wasn’t enough to prevent Dortmund from falling in a 2-1 loss to Freiburg.
“If you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. Now make yourself at home. “(Judas and the Black Messiah)
After being assisted for his 14th Bundesliga goal of the season, Weghorst returned the favor and became a creator, setting up Wolfsburg’s second in a 2-0 win over Augsburg.
He is now tied for third place in the Bundesliga scorers table, and the two people ahead of him. might it is only listed elsewhere on this list.
“Thanks for everything.” (Woman’s pieces)
Opening the scoring in a win over Marseille is a good way to keep PSG fans happy.
That’s exactly what Mbappé did this week, although his thunder was stolen a bit from him by Dimitri Payet’s attempt to become a kung fu master mid-game.
“Damn, Otis just put the gold on Craigslist!” (Give 5 Bloods)
This week brought more gold from Ibrahimovic, who scored his 13th and 14th Serie A goals in just his 11th game in the competition in a 4-0 win over Crotone.
He started and finished a beautiful play for his first goal, before scoring home what might well be the easiest goal he has ever scored. A good week.
“My mom says you are homeless. Is that true?”
“No, I’m not a bum. I’m just a bum. It’s not the same, is it?” (Nomadic land)
With as many assists and positive tests for COVID-19 this week, Muller will become better acquainted with the inside of his home than ever.
He scored the goal in Bayern’s 1-0 win over Hertha, but barely made it to the Club World Cup, instead watching his team lift the trophy in isolation.
“You didn’t think this was the end, did you? It’s now.” (Promising young woman)
We have seen the end of the most exciting Premier League title race in years?
Probably because of Gundogan.
He scored twice in Manchester City’s 4-1 win over Liverpool, playing so well he was even able to laugh at the fact that he also skipped a penalty. The man is on fire.
“You have become very important to many people here.” (Sound of metal)
After a slow January, Fernandes is back on full blast shooting.
He scored the top pick in the group in Manchester United’s 3-3 draw with Everton, putting in a great effort from outside the box to give his team what should have been a comfortable cushion.
“His record is going to stand the test of time.” (One night in Miami)
Messi loves to break records and set a new personal best in Barcelona’s 3-2 win over Real Betis.
He started the game on the bench, but after entering the middle of the second half, he only needed 136 seconds to find the back of the net, his fastest goal as a substitute.
Messi also pulled the strings for Barça’s second goal of the match, achieving the kind of pass that helps the club justify its astronomical contract.
“Don’t worry. Everything will work itself out.” (The father)
Lukaku will have to try to fix things next week after taking out two blanks for Inter.
A goalless draw with Juventus sent Inter crashing out of the Coppa Italia this week, but now the focus is solely on defeating Milan at the top of the Serie A table.
“The world is watching!” (The Chicago 7 trial)
The eyes of the world are on Andre Silva, whose scoring exploits are currently at a level most players can only dream of.
The Frankfurt hit man scored his 17th goal of the Bundesliga season in just his 19th game, making him the second top scorer in Europe’s top five leagues this season.
“I want credit. It’s the best I’ve ever written.” (Mank)
Kimmich is rightly seen as one of the best footballers in the world, and yet he still doesn’t get the credit he deserves.
He left with the Bronze Ball of the Club World Cup and was unlucky not to score a goal in the final, seeing an impressive effort controversially ruled out of play.
“Very nice!” (Borat later movie)
Another game, another goal for Immobile.
He scored the only goal in Lazio’s 1-0 win over Cagliari, but Immobile could easily have had two or three, had it not been for the efforts of goalkeeper (and ex-Football Manager wonder kid) Alessio Cragno.
“Everybody needs a little faith.” (The little things)
Ronaldo has always had faith in Juventus’ ability to win the title, and he is doing everything he can to achieve it.
He scored his 16th goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Roma’s top four this week, helping Andrea Pirlo’s team climb to third place.
“We said we wanted a fresh start. This is it.” (Minari)
He may not necessarily have wanted this fresh start, but Suárez is making the most of his time with Atlético de Madrid.
The Uruguayan scored twice in a 2-2 draw with Celta de Vigo this week, and Suárez is currently on a seven-goal streak in his last four games. It’s not bad at all.
“One one. One two. One you-know-what-to-do.” (Ma Rainey’s black butt)
Help. Two goals. A Club World Cup trophy for Lewandowski.
Directly involved in all the goals Bayern scored in the tournament, it was no surprise to see Lewandowski receive the Ballon d’Or. Now he must be used to being the best player in the area.
