Fraser Forster

The Southampton keeper has been one of the most consistent protectors of the net in the EPL this season. If he can continue his current form, he would be an excellent option to challenge Joe Hart for the national position.

Cesar Azpilicueta (RB)

Establishing himself as an integral part of the Chelsea line-up and a member of Mourinho’s ‘Permanent 7 club’, he has proved time and again what a crucial player he is for Chelsea with his consistency.

Cesar Azpilicueta is understandably one of Jose Mourinho’s favourite players given his consistency in defence

John Terry and Gary Cahill have played extremely well together over a number of years, and despite their lack of pace, are more than adept at winning duels against most strikers.

 Leighton Baines (LB)

One of the most important players for Everton for innumerable seasons now, he has incessantly proved his mettle on the field with his defensive, as well as offensive abilities. His crosses from the wing are what make Lukaku that much more threatening in an Everton shirt.

Alexis Sanchez (RM)

Many people were worried about the physicality of the Chilean when he made the move to Arsenal. However, he has been one of the most entertaining players to watch in the EPL since his big money move from Barcelona and has now scored 9 goals in the league thus far.

Alexis Sanchez has been one of the top buys of the summer transfer window and is the sole reason why Arsenal are still fighting for their ‘Top Four Trophy’

Eden Hazard (LM)

A joy to watch on the field and a terror for the opposition’s defence, this young talent has been scoring goals and providing assists for Chelsea all season long.

Eden Hazard has displayed defensive awareness too this season, and his work-rate for The Blues has been praise-worthy

Cesc Fabregas (CM)

He is currently the top assist maker in the EPL with 11 assists. How Arsenal supporters must be ruing a missed opportunity. We know that Ian Wright was…

Probably the last name that Arsenal supporters would’ve wanted to see on this list. Probably one of the first that they would’ve expected.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (CM)

Probably playing the best football of his life, he has been the most important player for Swansea City this season with some crucial goals and assists.

The man from Iceland has proved that he is more than capable of making up for the absence of Michu

Graziano Pelle (ST)

Pelle has been a serious threat to all defences in the EPL and has been Southampton’s first choice striker. His lethal left foot and physical presence in the box has played a very crucial role in making Southampton contenders for a top-four finish.

Pelle has done his reputation wonders since making the move to Southampton and has earned an international cap in the process

Sergio Aguero (ST)

Probably the best striker in the world right now, Aguero has rekindled Manchester City’s title ambitions. He currently has the best goals per game ratio in the Premier League this season.

Alan Pardew

Voted as the Manager of the month for November, he has been the reason for the complete turnaround of Newcastle’s season. He took all the blame for his team’s dismal run initially but has come back with vigour to silence his critics and fans alike. Newcastle now sit 7 in the table with 23 points.
