Caglar Soyuncu – Leicester City

Caglar Soyuncu finally made his Leicester City debut but the game was overshadowed by the tragic helicopter crash which saw club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha lose his life. Soyuncu looked a little nervy at times and will need more time to settle in but there were promising signs. The 22-year-old obviously has pace on his side, has a commanding aerial presence, can pass the ball out of defense and contribute to attacking moves.

Cenk Tosun – Everton

Poor Cenk must be wondering what he needs to do to regain his place as first-choice striker. He was on the bench again despite scoring two goals in the Toffees last three games. Everton did have plenty of chances but nobody in the box to put the ball in the back of the net. It was one of those games the Merseyside based side could have done with his presence in the box. He was briefly brought on but did not have enough time to really make an impact. Richarlison has not scored upfront for the past two games now. With competition tight upfront he may be pushed wide next week making room for the Turkish striker.

Mesut Ozil – Arsenal

Not his finest display but he was not nearly as bad as Mr Graeme Souness claimed in his post-match rant. Ozil painted a frustrated figure and expressed his discontent after furiously chucking his gloves on the floor after being taken off for Danny Welbeck.

Cengiz Under – Roma

The boy wonder was brilliant yet again for the Giallorossi who picked up a point away to Napoli. Under setup Stephan El Shaarawy after getting to the byline and cutting the ball back his teammate to slot home, touching the post on the way in. The 21-year-old now has three goals and five assists in all competitions for Roma this season.

Zeki Celik – Lille

Zeki Ceiik has gone from playing second-tier Turkish football to a first-team starter for Lille who won again over the weekend beating Caen 1-0 at home. The 21-year-old defended well making two important interceptions and clearances as well as bursting down the wing contributing to attacking play. If you had told anyone that a player from Istanbulspor would have started every game for Lille this season they would probably have asked if you’d forgotten your medication! The French side are second in Ligue 1, eight points behind leaders PSG.

Emre Mor – Celta Vigo

He exists! I do not remember the last time Emre Mor got a start but he did in the 4-0 victory over Eibar. Unfortunately, he did not score or provide an assist. He did not even pull off a successful dribble. But it was great to see him return. He is just 21-years-old and a fantastic talent. In the right hands, there is still hope for young Emre.
