3. Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich/Canada)

The Canadian has gone from up-and-coming winger to world-class fullback in the span of a year, and he’s only getting better. You could call it a meteoric rise, but even that might be an understatement and, to be honest, Davies would probably outrun the meteor, too. It’s that much-discussed pace that brought Davies into the spotlight, with Thomas Muller calling the Canadian “the FC Bayern Road Runner”.

He averages 1.1 tackles and 0.9 clearances per game, with an average rating of 7.49 throughout the season. He is a threat going forward too, often making attacking runs and creating scoring opportunities.

2. Joao Cancelo (Manchester City/Portugal)

Originally a right-back, the Portuguese has been heavily deployed on the left side of Manchester City’s defence by Pep Guardiola. His flexibility on either flank provides a great advantage for his team.

This season, he has already been directly involved in 11 goals. He is a great dribbler and often finds himself in attacking positions. He averages 2.1 tackles and 2 interceptions per game, which proves he is equally great defensively.

1. Andrew Robertson (Liverpool/Scotland)

Liverpool signed Robertson from Hull City in 2017 for a reported fee of £8m, and the Scotland international has become an integral part of Jürgen Klopp’s squad. Five years on, he’s one of the best left-backs in the world right now and has played in two Champions League finals in two years, with one medal to his name.

His crossing, even at full speed, is rarely anything less than a pinpoint, making him a valuable part of Liverpool’s attack. Robertson is a fearsome presence down Liverpool’s left-hand side, bustling up and down the wing, making crunching tackles and showing great positional awareness.
