Ilkay Gundogan Borussia DortmundSTAR MAN
Ilkay Gundogan
Borussia Dortmund have struggled in the Bundesliga this season and it is no surprise given that Ilkay Gundogan missed the two and a half months through injury. Since returning in October, the German midfielder has featured in all of Dortmund’s matches and even claimed an assist during a 20-minute cameo against Galatasaray. The playmaker is good with the ball at his feet but is also responsible for leading the Germans’ high-pressing game. Arsenal will have to be on the top of their game to keep the ball away from him.
