BRUNO FERNANDES and Bukayo Saka have both been named in the Europa League Team of the Season so far.
The Premier League stars have been in red-hot form in Europe this term, with the competition paused at the midway point of the last-16 stage.
But who else has made the cut, based on their average rating on WhoScored? Find out below…
Giedrius Arlauskis, Silvan Widmer, Harry Maguire, Gernot Trauner, Bukayo Saka
TWO Premier League stars make the cut, with Saka joined by Maguire in the back line.
LASK defender Trauner has put in some impressive performances this season, despite his side being battered 5-0 on their own patch at the hands of United.
Basel star Widmer completes the back-four, with Cluj stopper Arlauskis beating the likes of Bernd Leno and Sergio Romero to the starting spot between the posts.
The standout star, though, is Arsenal ace Saka – who scored twice and added three assists before the Gunners were knocked out.
Nicolo Zaniolo, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Esteban Granero
MAN UTD dominate the middle of the park, with Fernandes and Fred both in the XI.
Fernandes has been in imperious form since joining the Old Trafford side in January – with United enjoying a huge uptick in form ever since.
He was sensational in the 5-0 win over LASK, laying on a beautiful assist for Odion Ighalo's opener – as well as scoring six times in the competition during his time at both Sporting Lisbon and United.
Those goals make him the joint-top scorer in competition.
Fred, too, has been in much better from in the second-half of this season – particularly in Europe, scoring twice in the win over Club Brugge.
Former QPR flop Granero, who quit Espanyol in January, also makes the XI along with Man Utd and Paris Saint-Germain transfer target Zaniolo, currently at Roma.
Umar Sadiq, Alfredo Morelos
RANGERS star Morelos is joint-top scorer in the Europa League with six strikes this season – level with Fernandes and FIVE others.
Partizan Belgradge forward Sadiq, meanwhile, has only scored four times – ranking him below the likes of Mason Greenwood in the goal-getting charts.
But Sadiq has added two assists and been a great team player in earning a higher average match rating than Greenwood and Co.
