Let's get this party started...
Marco Reus - Borussia Dortmund v Werder Bremen 28.09.19 - Puma Future 4.1 'Rush'
Is there anything bad to say about Marco Reus? The German international has shown incredible loyalty to Borussia Dortmund over the years and yet even though he may be a little injury prone his class and quality continues to shine through. Scoring around a goal every two games for Dortmund is very good going for a winger/forward. Scoring at the weekend in a 2-2 draw against Werder Bremen in a laceless pair of Puma Future 4.1 from the latest Puma Rush Pack.
Kevin De Bruyne - Everton v Manchester City 28.09.19 - Nike Phantom VSN 'New Lights'
The assist king! Kevin De Bruyne has one hell of right foot and his ability to whip in a ball is extraordinary. Definition of baller. Away at Everton on Saturday evening, the Belgian mastered the first time ball, giving it to Gabriel Jesus on a plate to make it 1-0 City. He may be born with tekkers but his ability goes to another level in Nike Phantom VSN. The perfect boot to dictate the game. Cop the look at Pro:Direct.
Kieran Trippier - Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid 28.09.19 - adidas Nemeziz 19.1 'Hardwired'
When things seems pretty settled at Spurs, Trippier made the move to Madrid to play for the red and white half of the city. His technical ability have been hugely praised so far by the Atletico supporters, so with all things looking well Kieran Trippier has found his mojo again. With an attacking outlook on the game, his crossing from wide is a massive part of his game. His boot of choice of the moment is the adidas Nemeziz 19.1 from the 'Hardwired' pack back in September.
Mario Balotelli - Napoli v Brescia 29.09.19 - Puma One 5.1 'Rush'
Now, we know what you may be thinking, "What on earth is Balotelli doing popping up here. Why him?" Well his career has gone from wild to weird, as he now plies his trade in Serie A for Brescia, how many of you knew that? Well, he notched his first goal for the club away at Napoli on Sunday and we noticed he still reps a pair of Puma One 5.1 from the recent Rush Pack. Let's see if the Italian can get back to his goal scoring exploits from his Milan days.
Jorginho - Chelsea v Brighton 28.09.19 - Nike Tiempo Legend 'Under the Radar'
We stick to the Italian theme with this one. Chelsea's number one playmaker Jorginho is one of the coolest customers from the penalty spot, but that runs in the Italian blood if we all remember Andrea Pirlo's penalty against Joe Hart back in 2012? Yeah? Coolness personified. Chelsea's number 5 calmly slotted his pen against Brighton on Saturday giving Frank Lampard his first win at Stamford Bridge. So what tools does Jorginho use? He wears a pair of Nike Tiempo Legend from the 'Under the Radar' pack. Control Master.
