Cengiz Under – Roma
Cengiz is just so ünderrated. Roma recently named him the Ündertaker as he has been plündering opposition defenders recently! Ok enough of the ünder puns. The 20-year-old has started the Serie A giants last five games. He has scored four goals in his last five games and provided an assist. In fact four of his last five shots on target have found the back of the net as well. And not any old goals either. The Turkey international has been scoring weekly stunners. His latest installment involved a wonderful piece of skill followed by a rocket shot that appeared to shape-shift through the air. Roma ended up beating Udinese 2-0 – their third win on the bounce. As we said last week, he still has a lot more to offer, we have not even seen him at his best yet. Hopefully, he will get to star in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk mid-week.
The ‘Turkish Terror’ Cengiz Ünder
You have got to listen to this goal reaction
— Turkish Football (@Turkish_Futbol1) February 19, 2018
Enes Unal – Villarreal
The 20-year-old striker put on a hard-working display. Unal was strong in the air winning five aerial balls which helped his side keep hold of possession. The Turkey international was also impressive with the ball making three successful dribbles. The former Manchester City striker was unable to add to his goal or assist tally as the Yellow Submarines were held to a 1-1 draw against Espanyol.
Caglar Soyuncu – Freiburg
Another stellar display from the rock in the Freiburg defence. Like fellow Altinordu youth product Cengiz Under, Soyuncu has been an exemplary Super Lig export. The 21-year-old made his sides highest number of interceptions (5) and six clearances as the Bundesliga outfit beat Werder Bremen 1-0. Another clean sheet with the Turkey international at the back.
Cenk Tosun – Everton
Cenk did not actually play a competitive game this week as he was off on a warm-weather bonding trip with his teammates in Dubai. It appears the sunshine did him the world of good as this training video shows. Will he have done enough to get back in the starting line-up against Watford on Saturday? Only Big Sam can answer that I’m afraid.
Hakan Calhanoglu – AC Milan
Calhanoglu has been growing in influence. The talismanic playmaker has started to take over most set-piece duties. He has started to pull the strings and created an impressive four-goal scoring chances. The 24-year-old had 98 touches on the ball and pulled off 66 passes at 89 percent accuracy.
