Dimitri Payet continues to shine in the French top-flight despite being 35-years-old, scoring 12 goals and registering 10 assists for Marseille as the playmaker helped his side qualify for the Champions League and finish second in the league.
In attack, Lionel Messi makes the Ligue 1 TOTS in his debut season for Paris Saint-Germain, playing the role of provider over a goal scorer, registering 14 assists in 26 appearances in Ligue 1. Kylian Mbappe has been the star of the season, not just in Ligue 1 but in Europe and is considered by many as the best player in the world right now, scoring 28 goals and registering 19 assists in 35 appearances. The World Cup winner recently signed a new deal to stay at the Parc de Princes and will continue to terrorise opposition defences in Ligue 1 for the next three years.
