The best talent in the game today.
100. Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)
Stylish Spaniard has adopted more of a holding role this year but has been as consistent as ever, a reliable performer, surely one of the first names on Arsene Wenger’s team sheet.
99. Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid)
98. Fernando Llorente (Athletic Bilbao)
Outgrown Athletic Bilbao and likely to leave San Mames for a move that may put him on the map and help to force his way into Vicente del Bosque’s national team starting line-up.
97. Neven Subotic (Borussia Dortmund)
Solid and dependable and a rock in the Borussia Dortmund defence. Would be far higher on this list but for his sides shaky start to the Bundsliga campaign.
96. Leandro Damiao (Internacional)
Brazilian who can not stop scoring for club and country and surely set for a European adventure sooner rather than later.
95. James Rodriguez (FC Porto)
Talented young Colombian has won two domestic titles since moving to FC Porto and is a regular provider at club and country level and a target of a number of Europe’s elite.
94. Victor Valdes (Barcelona)
Barcelona keeper probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves but the custodian has been the undisputed number one at the Nou Camp for to long for anyone to doubt his ability.
93. Mathieu Valbuena (Marseille)
Crafty pint sized French midfielder has been outstanding this term, helping Marseille to mount a genuine title challenge.
92. Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Shakhtar Donetsk)
Armenian attacker has been in amazing form since moving to the Donbass Arena
91. Pedro (Barcelona)
Tricky winger is always lively and a real handful and a player that perfectly suits Barcelona’s short passing game.
