QPR | Loic Remy
Front runners for relegation. A terrible run under Mark Hughes with no wins in 14 meant it was a herculean task for Harry Redknapp to rescue the season. To help, Redknapp signed Remy. Since then he has been the stand out performer for this poor Rangers side. And his accuracy in front of the goal is QPR's only hope right now. But it might still prove too little, too late. If only some quality players were bought in the last summer.
Runner Up | Christopher Samba
Reading | Jobi McAnuff
Another side that is struggling in the Premier League. Reading's remarkable run of form towards the end of last season saw them win promotion to the Premier League. But failure to add to the squad has been detrimental to the side. Jobi McAnuff might have done enough in this side to warrant himself a transfer to another club next season.
Runner up | Adam Le Fondre
Southampton | Morgan Schneiderlin
The Premier League's leader in number of tackles and interceptions is the Frenchman. With a keen reading of the game and brilliant anticipation, Morgan Schneiderlin is the calm presence in Southampton's midfield. What’s more impressive is his five goals which have come against quality opposition. At just 23-years-of-age the future is very bright of this very talented midfielder.
Runner Up | Rickie Lambert
Stoke City | Asmir Begovic
In a side that struggles to score goals, it does help a lot to have one of the best shot stoppers in the league as your goalkeeper. The Bosnian has been in imperious form maintaining 10 clean sheets. Apart from his reflexes, his decision making is also top draw. But with Stoke buying the highly rated Jack Butland, it appears that Begovic's future lies elsewhere. He would be a very good addition for Arsenal.
Runner Up | Shawcross
Sunderland | Steven Fletcher
When Steven Fletcher signed for Sunderland, he would have thought that he was exchanging a relegation side to a mid-table side. but little would he have guessed that he would be the only guy performing in this rather abject Sunderland side. His goals have helped keep his side above relegation. But with all the other club’s performances improving it is essential that other players start stepping up.
Runner Up | Simon Mignolet
Swansea | Michu
Swansea have quickly evolved into everyone's darling team. With a style that is aesthetically pleasing to watch, a team built with a small budget have had a fairy tale run in the Premier League this season. And the player key to them has been Michu. He might be the best bargain buy in the Premier League's history. With 15 goals and two assists his rise this season has been phenomenal.
Runner Up | Ashley Williams
Tottenham | Gareth Bale
Gareth Bale has been in blistering form this season. Pace , strength and an unstoppable shot have made him a goal machine. Running at top speed and tearing apart defenses , he has been an absolute joy to watch for spectators and a terrifying sight for defenders. If he continues in this vein of form then the sky is the limit for the Welshman
Runner Up | Moussa Dembele
West Brom | Claudio Yacob
This season's surprise package. Tipped by many experts to be embroiled in relegation battle, West Brom are comfortably in the top half of the table. This has been largely due to an impressive and hardworking midfielder, Claudio Yacob. Unearthed from an unknown part of Argentina, he typifies the kind of team West Brom are - strength through perseverance and keeping things simple.
Runner Up | Romelu Lukaku
West Ham | Momo Diame
West Ham must be glad for their early season form. It is certainly preventing them from slipping into a relegation battle. The strong and powerful Diame has single handedly pulled the Hammers to victory from the jaws of defeat. The game against Chelsea is an example of the damage a Diame in full flow can inflict on the opponents. With a release clause hanging in his contract this must be anxious times for the manager Sam Allardyce.
Runner Up | Mark Noble
Wigan | Shaun Maloney
From being a squad player at the start of the last season, to the first name on the team sheet this season it has been quite a ride for Shaun Maloney. With decent dribbling and a good shot, his four goals and five assists are well deserved. Wigan always perform a Houdini act ever year to escape relegation and their form is picking up. Its going to be an exciting ride for Wigan again.
Runner Up | Arouna Kone
