Jesus Navas

Manchester City took quite a risk in purchasing such a slight winger that had a history of homesickness when going away with his club in Europe.

However, Navas has shown himself to be up to the challenge of the rigours of the Premier League - mainly because he is so adept at avoiding those rigours.

The Spain international is exceptionally fast, so any hefty defender looking to flatten him has his work cut out trying to get near him in the first place. Such pace is always a valuable attribute and Navas has used it brilliantly so far to make himself one of the more effective wingers in the league.
