However, its rugged start in the capital of Spain, injuries through, and the fantastic start to the season made by the City and Inter questioned which has been his third wound, after those achieved in 2017 and 2018, in his time as a star of Stamford Bridge. In the end, the great first half of the year played by Eden It has weighed more for the selection of journalists and Belgian football personalities in charge of casting votes. The 458 points accumulated by the Madrid player have surpassed the 348 of the citizen and at 248 of neroazzurro.
