We have chosen the top halfway lines in Europe’s top 5 leagues for the season.
Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid), Goalkeeper
Thibaut Courtois played a crucial role in Real Madrid’s victory over La Liga.
The Belgian international goalkeeper has not conceded a goal due to a mistake, unlike his rivals. This is remarkable considering that he has seen more shots than goalkeepers such as Ederson, Mendy, and Alisson.
Courtois has so far contributed 71 saves this season, which is a save percentage at 78.41%.
The 29-year old goalkeeper has 11 shutouts from 25 games and is back at his best.
Right-back Arnold (Liverpool).
Arnold suffered some issues earlier in the year, which meant his place in England’s Europa League squad was in jeopardy even before he was injured.
However, Liverpool’s right-back, David Beckham, has been as impressive as ever this season.
Arnold has had more chances (58), and more assists (10) than any other European defender. He has also scored two incredible goals: a free-kick against West Ham and an impressive long-range shot against Newcastle.
Gary Neville, Manchester United’s legendary footballer, recently said that it feels as if Liverpool has Gerrard, De Bruyne, or Beckham at right back.
Center-back: Ruben Dias (Manchester City)
Ruben Dias, Manchester City’s undisputed leader in solid defense at the moment, continues to make it look so simple.
The Portuguese man is a master at avoiding mistakes. He has never made any mistakes this season that could have resulted in an opposition shot on goal, and his strikes are nearly always perfect.
Dias is fifth among European center-backs with the most successful passes (1527), while his overall pass success rate of 93.11% is
After starting almost ironically, Diaz was named the Premier League’s best player for 2020-21. He played in a City team that rotated frequently. The city has conceded only nine goals in 18 games, and it’s not surprising that Diaz will be awarded the Player of Year award in 2022.
Centre back: Schlotterbeke (Freiburg)
Freiburg (16) has conceded the fewest goals in the Bundesliga this year. Schlotterbeck was key to that success.
The all-around center-back, who can also play in midfield and can play in central defense, had a great loan stint at Union Berlin last summer. He was then selected by Hans Flick, the new German manager, for the adult squad.
The left-footer, who continues to improve, proved to be a rock for third-placed Freiburg and contributed two goals at each end of the pitch.
The 22-year old has been linked to a move to Bayern Munich.
Left-back: Cancelo (Manchester City)
Although Cancelo took some time to settle into Manchester City, the Portuguese are now one of the most skilled and positionally versatile defenders in all of football.
The 27-year old is a talented footballer who can play either side of the defense and is well on his way towards solving the club’s long-standing left-back problems.
Guardiola would prefer Cancelo to be a supporting midfielder, so it is not surprising that Cancelo is more often a support player.
He has seven assists this season for Juventus, including an outlandish pass for Raheem Sterling against Everton. Additionally, he has scored goals on three occasions.
Joan Armenia (Monaco), Midfield
Monaco is well aware of Joan Ameny, their gem.
Paolo Mitchell, Sporting Director, recently stated to La Gazzetta Dello Sport that “Everything in Monte Carlo is expensive so let’s just say Joan Amenyi costs as much as the Grand Casino.”
Joan Amenyi has been likened to the new Gerard, and Monaco will likely have fewer offers.
Joan Ameni is the only midfielder to have made more interceptions (80) this season. He is also second in his age group for winning back possession (214) and third in shovel tackles (68).
Therefore, it is not surprising that nearly all the top clubs in the Premier League are interested in the French international.
Brozovic (Inter Milan), Midfield
Simone Inzaghi, Inter boss, is desperate for Brozovic’s signature on a contract extension.
A former critic for his inconsistency and lack of discipline, a player is being praised for his amazing work rate and ability to touch the ball.
The Croatian international has been a successful midfielder in all competitions (1,681) and has covered a lot of ground in every match.
Brozovic is a vital cog in Inter’s midfield and if Inter doesn’t sign a new contract soon, expect Tottenham Hotspur to call.
Right-winger Salah (Liverpool).
Mohamed Salah is still underrated and remains one of the greatest mysteries in football.
Although he is a great goal scorer, the Liverpool winger has arguably elevated his game to a higher standard this season. However, he finished seventh in the Ballon d’Or voting, and he did not even make it onto the FIFPro World List.
But, this snub has not affected the man. He scored stunning solo goals against Watford, Manchester City, and Watford. He now has 22 goals for 2021-22 and nine assists.
While some may not recognize Salah’s brilliance as a candidate for the right-wing post, he is an able candidate.
Centre forward: Benzema (Real Madrid)
It was once that respected pundits wondered if Benzema was good enough to play for Real Madrid. This is amazing to think about.
French striker Carlo was accused of being too slow to score goals.
However, Benzema’s goal-scoring has dramatically improved since the Portuguese left in 2018, and he finally gets the recognition he deserves.
He is 34 years old, but Benzema has been in great form. He scored 20 goals this season in all competitions and gave eight assists to his teammates.
Centre forward: Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
Lewan is another player who doesn’t agree with the idea that strikers begin to decline after the age of 30.
Lewan, 33, is in his best form and is possibly the best player currently in the world.
This season, the Polish striker has scored an astonishing 30 goals in all competitions. Bayern leads the Bundesliga table by nine points. They are currently in the 16th round of the Champions League with a clean sweep.
Levine has not won a Ballon d’Or yet, but this could change in 2022 if he can continue with this form.
Left winger, Mbappe. Paris Saint-Germain.
Mbappe could be free to leave Paris next summer, which is a mind-boggling thought. His contract with Paris is due to expire at the 23-year-old speedster and he could take over a forward-looking line.
Mbappe was involved in 27 goals this season in all competitions, with 15 goals, 12 assists, and helped Paris to lead the Ligue 1 table by 12 points.
Although the France international has begun to rub off on Lionel Messi’s, the fact that Paris fans could join Real Madrid for a free transfer within six months only makes them feel worse.
Mendy, Chelsea’s goalkeeper, narrowly lost to Courtois. Ramsdale was well-deservedly mentioned for his outstanding performances at Arsenal.
Thiago Silva continues to show that age is just an issue, while Rudiger has shown himself to be one the most outstanding out-and-out center-backs in the world.
Saliba’s great season has been for Marseille, Alaba has proven he is worth the high salary at Real Madrid, Bremer is a hero for Torino and Conde is a strong starter at Sevilla. Napoli lost three of their last four matches, proving the importance of international of the Senegalese.
Kroos and Casemiro remain the top midfield players, while Modric has taken over from Fernandinho, and Montpellier’s Savanier is in his best form.
Calhanoglu should be considered one of the top signings of the season. His Inter teammate Barella continues his growth, Payet is showing that he is still one the most creative football players at Marseille, and Vinicius is becoming a world-class talent at Real Madrid.
Fiorentina’s shot-stopper Vlahovic appears like football’s next Super-Nine. Jota also breaks Liverpool’s front three fixtures. Muller continues to write his own Bayern history, while Crowe scores goals at will at Manchester United.
