Victor Osimhen proved he is the most influential player in the French Ligue 1 this season by getting a goal in Lille’s 2-0 away win at Angers SCO last Friday.

Like Osimhen, two other players are essential: Habib Diallo in the ranks of FC Metz and Denis Bouanga in the colors of AS Saint-Etienne. The Grenades forward, who has also opened the scoring eight times for his team, has earned 10 points for the promoted club, currently 16th in Ligue 1.
For his part, Denis Bouanga also earned 10 points for the Greens. But unfortunately for his team, he was hampered by an injury in December which removed him from the field until the end of January. The number 20 has not yet found its effectiveness since his return.
