#1 Benjamin Mendy (Manchester City)
He may not have been the most familiar name in football a few years ago, but everyone knows who Benjamin Mendy is now. Manchester City paid more than £50 million to bring him to the club, making him the most expensive full-back in football history, but he looks like the real deal. He may have suffered from a serious injury that meant we didn’t see him too many times last season, but he is back fit and firing now, so expect to see him at his brilliant best.
Much like Marcelo, he does his best work in an attacking position, but he is more than capable of doing his job at the back. His pace means he can get back and provide cover, while he is also a big part of City’s play in attacking positions. He is an option out on that left side, and has the ability to provide an excellent delivery into the box. However good City were last season, he will make them even better this year.
