Moussa Dembele was Fulham's outstanding player before joining Spurs, but his form has continued.
The Belgian is strong and hard to dispossess. His distribution is very good and he can stop an attack with his superb positioning and reading of the game.
Dembele fits in well in the new-look Spurs team and will be a huge influence if Andre Villas Boas' side are to claim a Champions League spot this season.
He has already earned his 50th cap for his country.
Contenders for the position are Ramires and Mikel Arteta.
