#5 Christian Pulisic - Borussia Dortmund
Christian Pulisic has been the only real spark in a Borussia Dortmund attack, crammed with injuries and mediocrity this season.
Following the departure of star player Ousmane Dembele to FC Barcelona, the onus was on the American wunderkind to emerge as the focal point of the Dortmund attack and didn't he live up to the billing!
Although Pulisic might not have been as effective nor as good as the current Barcelona youngster, the 19-year-old has been remarkable at times this season.
The native of Hershey, Pensylvania has been involved in just four Bundesliga goals but his overall contribution has been pivotal in Dortmund's attack, which has outscored the mighty Bayern so far this season.
He'll surely remain a key figure in the Dortmund team despite the return of star players such as Mario Gotze, Marco Reus and Gonzalo Castro in the second half of the season.
