#5 Memphis Depay
Memphis Depay has been wonderful for Lyon in the Ligue 1 this season. Since joining Lyon from Manchester United, the 25-year-old has been nothing short of brilliant for Lyon. He has continued his rich vein of form this season as well.
This season, Depay has played everywhere in the attack from striker to number 10. But, he prefers the left wing and that's where his best performances have come from. His dribbling abilities are what make him stand out. But what struck me this season has been his ability to pick a pass. Right now, he leads the charts in Ligue 1 with 8 assists to his name and in a league that consists the likes of Angel Di Maria and Neymar, it is not pretty bad.
In terms of stats in the Ligue 1 this season, Depay has scored 5 goals and given 8 assists. He has completed 43 of his dribbles and given a total of 42 crosses with 33 percent accuracy.
