Europe's premier club competition is back - but who will be crowned the first Santander Player of the Week?

The UEFA Champions League is back!

And with eight more mouth-watering ties on Tuesday, the big boys are coming out to play.

But who will emerge as the star of the show? Who will rise up above the rest and be crowned the UEFA Champions League Player of the Week, sponsored by Banco Santander?

Will Nabil Fekir lead Lyon to glory once more after inspiring a victory over Manchester City that saw him become the club’s first player to both score and assist in a UCL match since September 2016?

Or will Paul Pogba shine? It hasn't been all smooth sailing for the World Cup winner this term, but he has been directly involved in four of Manchester United’s last six UCL goals (two goals, two assists).

And for all the established stars, let's not forget the host of newcomers, like 21-year-old Ajax sensation Donny van de Beek. On Matchday 1, he became the first Dutch player to score on his UCL debut for more than a decade.

Voting for Player of the Week opens on Thursday .
