Geoffrey Kondogbia absolutely dominated the midfield against Manchester United, with his individual highlights making for sensational viewing.
Kondogbia starred in the engine room of the pitch as Atletico Madrid drew 1-1 with Man United in their Champions League last-16 first leg clash on Wednesday.
He was formidable in midfield, single handedly running the show - stifling the threat of Paul Pogba who was unable to get going for the visitors.
The 29-year-old sat in front of his side's defence and dictated the game, spraying passes to the full-backs and creating attacks.
He was also defensively sharp, retrieving the ball and even winning the ball high up the pitch to set up promising counters.
Twitter user JoyaCOMP47 shared a stunning compilation of Kondogbia's performance against Man United following the draw at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Needless to say, his showing in the middle of the park got fans and critics singing his praises.

One tweeted: "Kondogbia is running the show here."
A second wrote: "Incredible performance from Kondogbia tonight."
A third added: "Kondogbia has been a cut above, by the way. Untouchable, both on and off-the-ball!"
Kondogbia, though, was not on the winning side as Anthony Elanga cancelled out Joao Felix's superb diving header.
The return fixture goes down on March 15 at Old Trafford, with the tie evenly poised.
