Manchester City v Huddersfield Town - Premier League

Benjamin Mendy is a footballer from France who plays for Manchester City in the Premier League. He was signed in 2017 but due to his knee injury, was able to play in just seven matches last season.

Due to the elite level of skill sets Mendy possesses, he has been ranked as one of the best defenders in the league. He has been an important part of the tactical evolution in Manchester City under Pep Guardiola.

Mendy can charge up and down the left flank with excellent pace. He delivers dangerous crosses inside the box, causing havoc within the opposition defence. His relentless crossing ability makes him one of the best, attacking defenders in the Premier League.

This season, Mendy has been on fire. The left-back has five assists to his name in just six matches that he has played so far. He has been City's best player in this early stage of the 2018/19 campaign.
