The 2010 Rookie of the Year is still only 21 and has been converted from an outstanding right-back into a crafty and nimble winger with an enviable leap.He earned a $3million move to Anderlecht back in January 2013 and has continued to impress, with two World Cup appearances for Honduras the reward in Brazil ,and his progression was there for all to see with his goal against Arsenal.Youri TielemansThe most spoken about of the trio is Tielemans who, at the tender age of 17, is well on the way to stardom having played 29 times in the Belgian Pro League last year.Capable of both the effectively simple and the sublime, Tielemans has the ability to ping an inch perfect 50-yard pass or casually slot a slide rule through ball into a forward, so Arsenal will have to watch out for his guile as he looks to pick open their defence.Dennis PraetFlatteringly compared to Andres Iniesta by former team-mate Tom De Sutter, who also highlighted the youngster’s technique and composure on the ball, Praet turned down a move to Arsenal back in 2010 following a trial as he wanted to continue his studies in his homeland.His adaptability, which allows him to play on the left flank as well as centrally, is also a key ingredient to his success in Brussels, where he has already made more than 100 senior appearances and won three titles.According to Praet, he never met Arsene Wenger during his brief time with the Gunners and after tonight the Frenchman may wish he’d paid closer attention to the youngster and his talents. 1last_img
