In the Europa League competition, the first leg of the top 16 of the Europa League was held. In addition to the best eleven lineup in this round, three players from Manchester United and Leverkusen were selected and tied for the most. The three players selected by Leverkusen are all from the backcourt, and the best duo in this round of central defender position is Jonathan Tower and Tapsoba, both of whom are over 1.9 meters tall and have outstanding ability to compete for the top ball at high altitude. Jonathan Tower is 27 years old, while Tapsoba is 24 years old, three years younger than Jonathan Tower. These two are also the main central defenders of the team.
Jonathan Tower is a German player. He has played 31 games for the pharmaceutical factory so far this season, starting as many as 27 games, scoring a goal and getting a yellow card for seven games. In Europe, Jonathan Tower played 6 Champions League games and 3 Europa League games for the team this season, which is the core of the team’s defense. Jonathan Tower has a tough style, is good at pushing forward, and is aggressive in defense. If Jonathan Tower sits in the backcourt, it also makes the fans more defensive. It is obviously not easy for the opponent striker to cross the barrier of Jonathan Tower. Jonathan Tower is not only tall, but also physically antagonistic. As for Tapsoba, the high school defender, the defensive hardness is not inferior to teammate Jonathan Tower.
The Burkina Faso defender came to Leverkusen in the winter of 2020, and previously played in guimaraes, with a transfer fee of 20.2 million euros. So far this season, Tapsoba has only played as a substitute in one game, and started in the other 31 games, scoring two goals and getting four yellow cards. These two high school guards are also quite popular in the transfer market, and many teams are paying close attention to them and intend to dig them out this summer. Bayer Leverkusen also has one person selected, and this person is Hincapie, a left-footed general from Ecuador, playing full-back position. This season is the Ecuador international’s second season in Leverkusen, and now he is also the regular main force of the team.
Since the start of the season, Hincapie has played 28 games for Leverkusen, including 25 starts and 3 substitutes, and scored 1 goal. The assists have not been captured yet. As a full-back, Hincapie’s defensive performance is good, but in this link of assists, it needs to be improved to be a full-back with strong offensive and defensive strength at both ends. Manchester United are also selected by three people, namely Rachford, Bruno Fernandez and Wehorst. In the Europa League match in the middle of the week, all three of them scored goals, which was the hero of the team’s victory. Bruno Fernandez plays an organizational role in Manchester United, which is different from the other two.
Rachford and Wehorst are both frontcourt players, but their roles are different. The former is fast, plays more flanks and has strong scoring ability. As for Wehorst, he is a tall center. Although he didn’t score many goals after joining Manchester United, he played a big role in the team. The existence of Wehorst can make other players at Manchester United’s offensive end play more skillfully, thus producing a good chemical reaction. Wehorst has played 15 games for Manchester United so far, including 8 in the Cup and 7 in the League. Both the FA Cup and the Carling Cup have scored goals, but they haven’t scored in the league on behalf of Manchester United. The Dutch high center hopes to do this as soon as possible.
