Johan Vasquez-Genoa

The defender had a weak start in Serie A, but as he understood the coach’s idea, he established himself as one of the starting centrals. Even Johan has already scored a header and is fighting not to be relegated with his team. So far, he has the last five games as a starter and has 450 minutes.

Edson Álvarez-Ajax

The ‘Machín’ is one of the brightest in Europe today. The midfielder is an indisputable figure in the Amsterdam team and has earned the trust of his manager, Erik Ten Hag. Álvarez is active in the Eredivisie and the UEFA Champions League and it is a fundamental part that his team is the leader in the local league and in his group in the continental tournament. In the Eredivisie, he has 11 games as a starter for 913 minutes and has two goals.

Andrés Guarded-Real Betis

The ‘Little Prince’ has played 11 matches out of 13 possible in LaLiga with Real Betis. The midfielder, who is one of the most veteran players in the war team, accumulates 548 so far in the Spanish tournament and his season has not been the best since he has been in the Heliopolitan team.

Héctor Herrera-Atlético de Madrid

The ‘Zorro’ is one of the elements that plays in an elite team in Europe, but the midfielder has not been a regular part of Diego Pablo Simeone’s scheme and has had ups and downs. Considered a man of change, rather than a starter, he has only played 233 minutes in seven of the 12 games that the colchoneros have played.

Jesus Manuel Corona-Porto

The ‘Tecatito’ started the season in a very uncertain way, as rumors and negotiations with other clubs in Europe focused their attention on everything, except football. The skilful winger hasn’t been that figure the Dragons need and has only 227 minutes in five games.

Raúl Jiménez-Wolverhampton

The ram returned after months of inactivity due to a skull injury; However, after regaining his football rhythm in the season, Jiménez has already made his debut in the Premier League and has added two touchdowns and two assists so far this season. In addition, he is the undisputed starter and has played 11 games with 902 minutes.

Hirving Lozano-Napoli

The ‘Chucky’ has not been as unbalanced as last season, but he has collaborated so that his team is at the top of Serie A. Lozano has played in each of the 12 games of the Neapolitans and accumulates 487 minutes. In five games he has been a starter and in seven he entered the exchange, in addition to adding two annotations


Zack Steffen-Manchester City

At 26 years old, he is the substitute goalkeeper for the Citizens and it is difficult for him to play because he has the Brazilian Ederson in front of him; However, this tournament already had a match in the Premier League, which was last October 16 against Burnley and his team won 2-0.

Reggie Cannon-Boavista

The 23-year-old defender has barely had minutes in the Portuguese league and has 161 in a total of three games, in which all were as a starter.

Mark McKenzie-Genk

Partner of the Mexican Gerardo Arteaga in the Belgium team, he has nine games as a starter for 561 minutes and is one of the elements that has played the most in the Jupiler League.

Chris Richards-Hoffenheim

At 21, he is one of the players who reached the Bundesliga through exchanges between the MLS academies with German teams. So far this season, he has 536 minutes in eight games and is consolidating more and more behind the Teutonic team.

Antonee Robinson-Fulham

24-year-old Zaguero, plays in the Championship, which is the second division of the League of England. Although his development was for the U23 academy, he impressed in a good way and this year he has been the undisputed starter with 15 games played and more than a thousand minutes.

Joe Scally-Borussia Monchengladbach

He is one of the players with the greatest projection. At 18 he has 981 minutes with one of the teams that collectively plays the best in the Bundesliga, behind only Bayern Munich, BVB and Bayer Leverkusen. His solidity has made him a figure and after a year in the Teutonic team, he is already enjoying the fruits of his work.

Sam Vines-Royal Antwerp

Originally from Colorado Springs and 22 years old, this is his first season in Europe. His adaptation is slow, but he adds 4 games played and 360 minutes.

DeAndre Yedlin-Galatasaray

At 28, he is an element with a long history in Europe, since he has been on the other side of the Atlantic since 2014, when he emigrated to Tottenham. Now, he is living his second year in the Turkish league and in nine games he has 781 minutes, which is more than what he played last year after his arrival in the winter market.

Tyler Adams-RB Leipzig

The 22-year-old midfielder came to Leipzig through the MLS youth academies and after a good 2020, where he played 27 games, this tournament adds up to just seven for 451 minutes. In addition, his quality has made him participate in the UEFA Champions League in the four games played by the German team.

Gianluca Busio-Venezia

At 19 years old, he is an indisputable part of the 11th holder of the Italian team, the same one who has passed it irregularly so far this season, although he remains in 15th place in the classification and prays not to lose more games and fall in drop zone.

Weston McKennie-Juventus

He is one of the main figures of the American team, but his level with Juve left much to be desired. There was even talk of some indiscipline last season, so for this they read the primer and the midfielder seeks to be the solution for the Turin team. So far this season he has nine games for 602 minutes.

Yunus Musah-Valencia

With his entire career spent in Europe, the 18-year-old midfielder began his journey at Arsenal. Since 2019 he made the leap to Spain and after playing 32 times last season, he now has nine games with the first team and 365 minutes, so he is accumulating more and more minutes that add experience in an elite league.

Brenden Aaronson-Red Bull Salzburg

At the age of 21, he is living his second year in Austrian football and little by little he has established himself in the leading team of the Austraic Bundesliga. Add 959 minutes in the current campaign.

Christian Pulisic-Chelsea

It is, probably, the rival to follow of the American team, and it is that the so-called ‘Captain America’ plays in the UEFA Champions League champion. Although this year Thomas Tuchel has barely used it in two games, it is because the winger has had a hard time with injuries and barely returned to action on November 6.

Tim Weah-Lille

The French striker is barely 21 years old and has 11 games and 559 minutes. With his career formed in Europe, he has experience with PSG and Celtic of Scotland.
