Manchester City had a good afternoon seeing as they claimed five players inside the Ballon d’or best players list. The list was as follows-

20th: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dusan Tadic

19th: Trent Alexander-Arnold

18th: Antoine Griezmann

17th: Roberto Firmino

16th: Sergio Aguero

15th: Matthijs de Ligt

14th: Kevin De Bruyne

13th: Eden Hazard

12th: Raheem Sterling

11th: Frenkie de Jong

10th: Riyad Mahrez

9th: Bernardo Silva

8th: Robert Lewandowski

7th: Alisson Becker

6th: Kylian Mbappe

5th: Mohamed Salah

4th: Sadio Mane

3rd: Cristiano Ronaldo

2nd: Virgil van Dijk

1st: Lionel Messi

Well deserved in my opinion for Lionel Messi. As for City players, while we could disagree about placement all players had strong season and five in the top 20 is a great job for Pep Guardiola and his staff.

Mahrez being City’s highest ranked does make sense as the Algerian did win the African Nations Cup with Algeria over the summer.

Add Ederson landing in third best keeper and its a soid night for Manchester City.
