Alaba is undoubtedly one of the top young players in the game today. It’s a surprise he doesn’t get mentioned in the same breadth as Pogba et al. At least it seems as if he doesn’t. Plays in less glamorous positions and almost seems like a utility man but his intelligence, consistency and quality cannot be overlooked. He’s almost always on the team-sheet for Pep Guardiola so there’s a big hint.
