The German has been on the books of Manchester City since 2016 when he joined them from Borussia Dortmund.

City has missed the services of Kevin de Bruyne in recent weeks, yet they have won 17 straight matches in all competitions, thanks in part to Gundogan’s form.

The German has filled in so well and has been given a new freedom which could see Pep Guardiola struggle with his selection De Bruyne returns to fitness.

He missed City’s game against Everton because of injury, but he was the star of the show as they beat Tottenham 3-0 in the previous game.

He scored a brace in that match and that was just a follow up to the brace he scored against Liverpool two matches before the Spurs game.

The midfielder has been so good that he scored an average rating of 7.35 on Whoscored.

He moves from third to first on our list this week, here is the rest of the ranking:
