Player to watch: Demarai Gray
There are more than a few good players in this Al Ettifaq team, but with Moussa Dembele out with an injury, the key player for them in the upcoming period will be Demarai Gray. The Jamaican winger has the quality to be the team's biggest offensive weapon and so far he contributed with 1 goals and 2 assists in 6 league matches.
