OUSMANE DEMBELE

The young French forward is quick both running into space and with the ball at his feet. Still just 19, his development has been stark under Thomas Tuchel and, with a little more finesse, can become a genuine superstar of the game.

EMRE MOR

Has mainly played the role of impact substitute, due to the form of Dembele and Pulisic. The Turkish 19-year-old is a slightlybuilt, skillful and devastatingly fast winger.

FELIX PASSLACK

A product of Dortmund’s academy, the 18-year-old is adept at left and right-back and in midfield. An energetic box-to-box player whichever position he occupies.

CHRISTIAN PULISIC

Is already a legitimate force in only his second senior season. Like so many of his BVB peers, the 18-year-old is a rapid dribbler with a developing eye for goal.

JULIAN WEIGL

A metronomic passer at the anchor of midfield who can go long or keep it neat and short. With so much energy around him, the German international is the one who keeps it all simple and calm. Positionally disciplined, he plays with a maturity far beyond his 21 years.

THOMAS LEMAR

The 21-year-old is a bustling, offensive midfielder who is second in terms of successful dribbles in the Champions League this term with 26.

KYLIAN MBAPPE

The boy the whole of Europe seemingly wants to sign, with every match he’s critiqued and his style pored over, he delivers. Averages a goal this season every 83.2 minutes (including per 92.5 in the Champions League). Is surely destined for the very top.

BENJAMIN MENDY

An underrated presence in the Monaco side as so many of their attacking thrusts start with the 22-year-old French leftback.

Has three assists in four Champions League starts this term.

BERNARDO SILVA

A shame he was injured for Euro 2016 as he probably would have made Portugal fun to watch. His time will come internationally, until then witness his brilliant skill and outstanding passing range.
