    France 23 years-old, defender

    The Paris Saint-Germain left-back has had an exceptional month of August, scoring three goals: against Lyon (Trophée des Champions), Bastia (Week 1) and Metz (Week 2). Kurzawa is enjoying his most prolific start to a Ligue 1 season and has already equalled his goal tally from last season. An incredible performance for a wing-back, whose performances have included more than just goals. Layvin has been an essential element in Paris' strong start to the season, in a more attacking role than he is use to, but he hasn’t skimped on his defensive duties. Imperious on the left flank, Kurzawa has played his way back into the France squad, named in Didier Deschamps' squad for the upcoming international clashes.

    Argentine 27 years-old, midfielder

    The Argentine, who now wears the number ten shirt, got Paris' season off to a great start. It was he who scored Les Rouge et Bleus' first goal in official competition, in the Trophée des Champions against OL (4-1), before providing two assists - for Lucas and then Kurzawa - in that same match. His vision also got the better of Bastia and Metz in Ligue 1, helping the capital club to win their first two matches of the league season. Missing against Monaco, Pastore should make the most of if the international break to recover from his injury and come back at 100% in the clash with Saint-Etienne on September 9.

    Allemagne 26 years-old, goalkeeper

    Magnificent against Lyon in the Trophée des Champions, the Parisian 'keeper has strung together the good performances together since the beginning of the season. Decisive in Bastia, he went on to earn the LFP's Man of the Match award in Les Rouge et Bleus' first home match, at the Parc des Princes against FC Metz. Calm, assured and always impeccable on his line, Paris Saint-Germain's German 'keeper has made the perfect start to his second season with the capital club.
