Fernando Muslera – Galatasaray
Made to work for his clean sheet in the 0-0 draw with Schalke, making six saves, as the German’s peppered his goal but to no avail.
Alessandro Florenzi – Roma
Solid at the back for AS Roma and excellent going forward, getting in a number of crosses and key passes as the Italian side put CSKA Moscow to the sword.
Abou Diallo – Borussia Dortmund
The 4-0 scoreline in favour of Borussia Dortmund against Atletico Madrid doesn’t tell the entire story, with the La Liga club actually having more attempts on goal than their Bundesliga counterparts.
However, in what was Diego Simeone’s worst defeat as manager of Los Rojiblancos, Diallo was key to BVB keeping a clean sheet, making eight clearances, two blocks, two interceptions and two tackles.
Ozan Kabak – Galatasaray
Like Muslera above, Kabak was an essential reason for the Turkish side’s clean sheet, making seven clearances, including one off the line, blocking two shots, and making seven interceptions.
Rafinha – Bayern Munich
Tireless up and down the left-flank, bagging an assist as Bayern edged past AEK Athens, but did his fair share of defensive work too.
Toni Kroos – Real Madrid
Pulled the strings once again for the European champions who finally got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Viktoria Plzen. The Germany international made six key passes and completed a total of 116 passes with an accuracy of 97.5%.
David Silva – Manchester City
The effervescent Spaniard was at his best once again, making five key passes, and scoring one goal, as Man City swept past Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 in the Ukraine.
Xherdan Shaqiri – Liverpool
Earned plenty of praise from his manager as the Swiss International put in a fine performance for the Reds, grabbing an assist and making three key passes, as Liverpool breezed past Red Star Belgrade at Anfield.
Andrej Kramaric – Hoffenheim
The former Leicester City man continued his excellent form this season for Hoffenheim, scoring twice in the Bundesliga side’s exciting 3-3 draw with Lyon
Mo Salah – Liverpool
Found the net twice to take his tally for Liverpool to 50, as the ‘Egyptian King’ starts to look back towards his best.
Eden Dzeko – Roma
The former Man City striker had a hand in all three Roma goals, scoring two goals and providing one assist as the Serie A side comfortably dispatched of Russian side CSKA.
