Manchester United’s £200k-per-week man also makes the list…
Based on how many key passes each of these superstars has averaged every Champions League match this term, here’s the ten most creative European footballers so far this term.

10) Marcelo – Real Madrid – 2.3 key passes per match
The only left-back on the list, the fact Marcelo makes this list shows that he’s in the opposition half more often than he is in his own! His ability to overlap his wingers and deliver balls into the boxes is up there with the top fullbacks in world football.
9) Mesut Ozil – Arsenal – 2.4 key passes per match
The uber talented German’s Champions League campaign will be more remembered for his feeble penalty miss against Bayern Munich, but he was at his creative best during the group stages.
