90min’s Definitive European Player Power Rankings: Week Five

These modules are astonishing!!

After an international break full of the kind of nothingness international football has practically patented (this is just a joke to impress you guys, I actually like international football), club football came back with a bang this week.
Which is why we at Power Rankings HQ had to respond with similar firepower (‘Daddy’!*). Luckily we found it, with one of the greatest tv shows of this decade, hell, this century: ‘Atlanta’. And seeing as it ain’t Robbin Season just yet, we’re hitting you with Season One of this Donald Glover-helmed modern classic. 
*This joke will become clear by number four.
15. Henrikh Mkhitaryan (New Entry)

“What? This is a great environment for you!”

This could be taken in the sarcastic vein that it is delivered in the show, as a means to show just how badly Henrikh Mkhitaryan was suited to his surroundings at Manchester United and Arsenal. 
But it could also be taken at face value where Roma is concerned, with the Armenian netting a fine goal on his Italian bow to cap off a finer-still display in the 4-2 win over Sassuolo. As you will see, Arsenal rejects scoring on their debut, just as the Gunners’ were themselves faltering in Watford, was a theme this week. As was Arsenal affiliates letting themselves down with their own hubris. See the above tweet and Mateo Guendouzi.

“Well, why would I shoot at a human target?”

While it ultimately wasn’t to be for Bayern against a valiant/luck-riding RB Leipzig side, Robert Lewandowksi’s goalscoring heroics continued, thanks to a consummate finish inside just three minutes. 
Asked how he’s so darn accurate in front of goal, the Pole’s response is quoted above. 
13. Stefano Sensi (New Entry)

“Can I measure your tree?”

With several feet, let alone inches, between Stefano Sensi and Udinese’s covering defender, you can image Antonio Conte and co’s surprise when the diminutive playmaker snuck ahead of him to sneak in a gloriously taken header into the net via the underside of the bar. 
Inter’s 2019 breakout star can head a ball, and he’s barely breaking 5ft.
12. Nacho Monreal (New Entry)

I be wild about add-ons, because they are the helpful!!
