Things to watch out for

  • Leandro Trossard is in the form of his life at Brighton in the premier league. He has wholly lit up the league with his brilliance. He is the primary reason Brighton has been performing so well in the league this year. He scored a beautiful hat trick against Liverpool, and he can be extremely dangerous at the world cup for Belgium.
  • Croatian and Tottenham Hotspur defender has been brilliant at the club level. He can play as a defender and as a midfielder. His form will be vital for Croatia to do well in the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
