Please share your comments on the question asked below. Thank you!

Football can never be sumptuous without the presence of good dribblers who use their technical skills to maneuver their way around opponent players. Dribbling may be beautiful to watch but it is one of the most difficult ball skills to master and one of the most useful attacking moves. A player who is gifted with dribbling always poses danger to opponents and no wonder all good footballers one way or the other are good dribblers.

The likes of Ronaldinho Gaucho, Diego Amando Maradona, Pele, Criss Waddle, Jay-Jay Okocha, Steve Mcmanaman, Ribbery and other players have paid their dues as far as dribbling is concerned. Dribbling is an art in football and every player who knows how to dribble past defenders is seen as a big asset for his team.

It is so interesting to watch a player take the ball past multiple defenders before unleashing an unstoppable cross or shot. Dribblers are born just to torment opponent players.

Today, many people believe that Lionel Messi is the king when it comes to dribbling but the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Adama Traore and others are also a force to reckon with. Lionel Messi is undoubtedly one of the best dribblers of all-time but the 33-year-old has been displaced by other young and sensational players.

Trustedeye have compiled a list of good dribblers in the ongoing 2020-2021 season. Here is the top five dribblers in the 2020-2021 season.

5. Lionel Messi - 4.6 per 90 minutes

Defenders have nothing to say but to suffer on the hands of the Argentine magician till he retires. Lionel Messi is even tormenting players at the age of 33. The Blaugranes captain dribbles an average of 4.6 in every game no wonder he is the top scorer in the La Liga with 23 goals.

4. Alain Saint-Maximin - 5.0 per 90

The young prodigy has been the creative force in the Newcastle team. The French winger achieves an average of 5 successful dribbles in a game no wonder fans were worried when the 24-year-old was out with coronavirus.

3. Adama Traore - 5.4 per 90 minutes

Adama Traore is still in our top five dribblers even though he hasn't been quite impressive as expected this season but his dribbling skills can't be taken away from him. He is a real threat to defenders when with the ball. It is not surprising because he is a product of Barcelona's world famous La Masia academy.

2. Neymar - 5.8 per 90 minutes

Neymar Junior needs no introduction in football when it comes to dribbling. Neymar is every opponent's nightmare and no one would wish to face the Brazilian international. Neymar has been injured on numerous occasions for dribbling but that wouldn't stop him from doing what he does best.

1. Rayan Cherki - 6.7 per 90 minutes

Surprised? Yes Rayan takes the top spot of our best dribblers in the 2020-2021 season. The 17-year-old has been struggling for minutes so it should tell you the player we are talking about. Cherki has been touted to be the next big thing out of Ligue 1 and it’s all because of his ability with the ball at his feet.
