Despite the unprecedented circumstances faced by professionals both on and off the pitch, many have stepped up and helped their teams achieve their goals, be it securing the title, a top-four finish, or a fight for survival.

The Portuguese defender has been in his towering best last season, marshaling the premier league stingiest defense with abnormal composure.
8. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspot)
A sluggish start to the season, Kane scored once in his opening 15 premier league appearances- has given way to usual flurry of goals and assist in recent month. The England captain is arguably the best no.9 in England’s top flight.
7. Luka Modric (Real Madrid)
