2. Erling Haaland

The teen sensation has made an immediate impact with some eye-catching performances after his arrival at the club. His partnership with Marco Reus in the forward line will definitely play an important role in the side’s fortunes in the months going ahead.

It will also help him to evolve as a better player in the future by playing alongside him. The former FC Red Bull Salzburg player has troubled the opposition with his speed and pace.

The 19-year-old has been a threat because of his ability to outsmart the opposition with his creative dribbles. Haaland can be a tricky player when it comes to his deceptive forays inside the opposition’s territory.

The Norwegian’s co-ordination with the midfielders and the forward line will be crucial. Playing alongside some experienced pros will definitely help him to grow as a player. Erling Haaland has scored 9 goals in 8 games this Bundesliga season and has contributed with 1 assist.

3. Axel Witsel

The midfielder has loads of experience of playing alongside some heavyweights of European football. The Belgian has been a vital cog in Dortmund’s campaign as the midfielder is capable of circulating the ball with his innovative moves and steady passing.

The 31-year-old made a switchover to the Bundesliga 2 seasons back season after playing for the Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian. The former Benfica player is a smart mover and can baffle any defence with his creative dribbles. Axel Witsel is a busy player on the field and has teamed up quite well with the likes of Marco Reus and Mario Goetze especially against teams who are defensively stronger.

Although Witsel has only scored 4 goals in 21 Bundesliga games this season, the Belgian can be a tough opponent because of his ability to create chances inside the box. He has contributed with 4 assists.
