Having passed the halfway point of the season, who has been the most impressive player in the French top flight so far?
Following his switch to PSG from AS Monaco in the summer, Kylian Mbappe has not shown any signs of slowing down in the capital with a plethora of impressive performances alongside Edinson Cavani and Neymar. With nine goals and assists to his name in just 15 games, the forward is proving he is by no means a one season wonder.
Monaco may be floundering in their title challenge, but Fabinho has been a star performer for the side from the Principality this term. The midfielder’s ability to control a game from midfield has been a bright spark in an otherwise underwhelming season for Leonardo Jardim’s side that has them currently sat in fourth place.
Olympique Marseille may have narrowly missed out on a UEFA Champions League spot with a fifth-placed finish last season, they have found themselves in contention to secure an automatic spot this term. Florian Thauvin has been a major catalyst in the Olympians’ surge to make Europe’s premier club competition, scoring 10 times and supplying eight assists. Also, the winger has won eight man of the match awards (joint-second with Neymar) and will be needed in top form if Rudi Garcia’s side are to feature in next season’s Champions League.
