The European Under-21 team of the season, according to WhoScored
Manchester United are the only Premier League team with a player in the European Under-21 team of the season according to WhoScored’s average ratings for the 2019-20 campaign.
Only players aged 21 or under at the start of their league campaigns are eligible for selection, although goalkeepers can be 23 and under.
The team is displayed in a 4-4-2 formation, and that forward line is absolutely terrifying.
Predrag Rajkovic – 7.0
The Stade de Reims goalkeeper has kept 12 clean sheets in 27 Ligue 1 appearances, conceding just 18 goals all season.
Achraf Hakimi – 7.3
The Real Madrid defender is having a brilliant season on loan at Borussia Dortmund, contributing three goals and 10 assists from right-back.

Dan-Axel Zagadou – 7.1
Zagadou has only just established himself in the Dortmund defence, but he has helped them keep seven clean sheets in his 13 Bundesliga appearances.
Dayot Upamecano – 7.2
Upamecano has helped lead RB Leipzig to a title challenge in the Bundesliga and is now one of the most sought after centre-backs in world football.
Alphonso Davies – 7.5
It isn’t Davies’ natural position, but the Bayern Munich star has filled in impressively at left-back and so makes the WhoScored team in that position.
Jadon Sancho – 7.9
Sancho now has double figures for goals and assists for a second consecutive Bundesliga season. No wonder everybody wants to buy him.

Martin Odegaard – 7.2
It says a lot about Real Madrid’s strength in depth that they have two players out on loan in this Xl.
Christopher Nkunku – 7.5
Nkunku has four goals and 12 assists in the Bundesliga for RB Leipzig this season, and he averages a direct goal contribution every 90.7 minutes.
Marcus Rashford – 7.3
Rashford’s 14 goals and four assists mean he is the only Premier League representative on this team.
Kylian Mbappe – 8.1
It’s hard to argue with 18 goals and seven assists in 20 appearances.
Just look at the pace of Kylian Mbappé 🔥🔥🔥
