It remains unclear when football will return as the world pulls together to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Uefa has postponed the European Championship to 2021, as have Conmebol with the Copa America, as the governing bodies try to leave enough of a window open for domestic seasons to be completed over the summer.

When football does return, providing it is safe to do so, there are a few players who may feel they have points to prove, either at their new or existing clubs.

Eden Hazard has yet to show Real Madrid why he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo since his move from Chelsea last summer.

The Belgian forward has been hampered by injury, but will want to show the Bernabeu faithful the club were right to make him their club record signing.

As will Luka Jovic, the Serb signed from Eintracht Frankfurt, who has thus far struggled to replicate the form that saw him score 27 goals in 2018/19 in Madrid.

Others, such as Paul Pogba, are already established figureheads for their clubs. While there is no doubt of the Frenchman's talents, Manchester United are entitled to fill that the midfielder needs to deliver on a more consistent basis.

Above is a picture gallery of 10 players with points to prove when domestic football resumes.
