It’s the one and only Flotov! Florian Thauvin has been on fire since the start of the season and he proves that he is not inconsistent. The young Frenchman has showed some amazing performance by scoring a hat-trick and even assisting a goal against Metz. He is showing Didier Deschamps that he really wants to be part of the 2018 World Cup squad. He currently has 13 goals and 11 assists in Ligue 1 since the start of the season. Rating: 10.0

GOALKEEPER: If Guingamp won 1-0 at Rennes it’s mostly thanks to Karl-Johan Johnson. The Swedish goalkeeper has made 5 saves. He deserves most of the credit for stopping some shots that may have cost them the game. Rating: 7.5

RIGHT-BACK: For someone who has played his first Ligue 1 game of the season, Debuchy has made a good performance. He got transferred this January to Saint Etienne and he scored the opening goal in his first game with them. Rating: 8.0

CENTER-BACK 1: Damien Da Silva has been helping Caen beating Nantes in both defense and attack. The 29 year old French center-back has had a good game, he has scored 2 goals including the winning one in the last 10 minutes of the game. Rating: 8.5

CENTER-BACK 2: Monaco has not had a very good start against Lyon as they were 0-2 down in just 27 minutes. This has changed very soon as they score 2 goals before half time. 1 of the 2 goals has been scored from a penalty that has been fairly won by Kamil Glik. The Polish center-back also helped Monaco not conceding a goal in the second half by winning most of his duels. Rating: 7

LEFT-BACK: As we all know, PSG has a very strong squad so they don’t need to play their first team against the weaker sides in the League. Yuri Berchiche is not the first choice LB for PSG but he has had a very good game and also scored the opening goal against Lille. Rating: 7.5

CENTER-MID 1: As mentioned just before, PSG doesn’t play their first team against weaker sides, this also gave a chance to the young Argentinian Giovani Lo Celsio to show himself. The 21 year old has had a good participation in the 3-0 win. He was bossing the midfield and also scored a goal at the end of the game which is also his first in ligue 1. Rating: 7.5

CENTER-MID 2: Paul Lesne has done some good work in Montpellier’s midfield. In the first half this pays of with an equalizer from the French midfielder while Angers were winning 1-0. Other than that the also made some really good passes which created some chances for his team mates.Rating: 7.5

CENTER-ATTACKING-MIDFIELDER: Another Saint Etienne player. Remy Cabella has played some creative football even before his goal in the 85th minute. We have seen him making some good passes and creating chances for his team mates. Rating: 8.0

RIGHT-WINGER: Florian Thauvin has been on fire since the start of the season and he proves that he is not inconsistent. The young Frenchman has showed some amazing performance by scoring a hat-trick and even assisting a goal against Metz.

STRIKER: Marseille won with 6 goals so it’s no surprise that there are 3 Marseille players in this list. He assisted the opening goal and scored the 4th one. Great game for the Valère Germain. The Frenchman made some good calls and it paid of. Rating: 8.0
