Goncalo Guedes was one of the key players as Valencia enjoyed a superb campaign last season.

The Portugal star has struggled to hit those heights this season, though, as injuries and poor form have limited his impact.

He was at his best in the 3-1 win over Villarreal, though. 47 touches, three shots, one key pass, and two crucial goals ensured this was a man of the match performance from the 22-year-old.

Valencia will be hoping that this star performance is the spark that can start a late surge of form for the Portuguese winger.
