#6 Clement Lenglet (Barcelona)

Is Samuel Umtiti still a Barcelona player? It is time we actually start talking about Clement Lenglet was his extraordinary performances for Barcelona. The fact that he was signed as a back up for Umtiti still amuses me. Clement had to pit his wits against probably the best French centre back in the world, and an injury to Umtiti made things easier for the former Sevilla man.

Lenglet has settled to life at Barcelona with ease, playing with immense confidence and belief in himself. The 23-year-old has a passing accuracy of 88%, which also makes him one of the best ball-playing centre-back in Europe. We would likely witness a Lenglet vs Van Dijk match in the semi-finals of the Champions League, which promises to be a top class game.

Samuel Umtiti went from being the best defender in the world to struggling for a starting spot at Barcelona within no time - thanks to Clement Lenglet's extraordinary performances for the Catalan side.


#5 Heung-min Son (Tottenham)

No Harry Kane, no problem! What an outstanding team performance from Pochettino's men to knock out one of the favourite teams to win the UEFA Champions League. Son, yet again, produced an excellent game to seal a spot in the semifinals for his side.

Two goals for the South Korean, Heung Min Son ran riots at the Etihad last night. The game had everything, ranging from questionable decisions to stunning goals. VAR played a crucial part in deciding the game as Raheem Sterling's late winner was called offside after reviewing the goal, where the VAR team found Aguero on an offside position, who created the goal for Sterling.

Son was certainly the man of the hour. He was everywhere on the pitch and produced two moments of magic to bag two vital away goals for Spurs. Though he'll miss the first leg against Ajax through suspension, it won't be a surprise to see Spurs reach the finals of the UEFA Champions League this season.
