Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold

One of the best right-backs in world football right now, Trent Alexander-Arnold has already achieved a lot at a very young age.

A product of the Liverpool academy, the 22-year old made his debut for the club in 2016 and has not looked back since then. A highly creative right-back with good passing and crossing ability, Alexander-Arnold has a unique skill-set that could easily see him prosper in Liverpool's midfield as well.

Liverpool have not enjoyed the best of campaigns this season, and the England international's form has dipped a bit too.

However, there is no denying Trent Alexander-Arnold's talent and the incredible role he played in Liverpool's Champions League and Premier League-winning campaigns under Jurgen Klopp.

If he continues his good form, he could win the prestigious Ballon d'Or award sometime in the future.


#4 Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

Harry Kane is arguably the most complete striker in world football at the moment. It is hard to imagine where Tottenham Hotspur would have been this season without Kane's world-class performances.

There have been suggestions that the Spurs talisman should leave Tottenham Hotspur, as the London club are in a transitional phase right now. The 27-year old has been in phenomenal form this season. Despite Tottenham Hotspur's inconsistent performances; he has been one of the best players in the English top flight.

Apart from being a goalscorer, Kane has also turned provider this season. The England international has made 31 league appearances, scoring 21 goals and providing 13 assists. He is the top goalscorer and assist provider in the Premier League this season.

Harry Kane has been a prolific performer for Spurs and England. His contribution for club and country definitely make him a contender for the Ballon d'Or award.
