Week after week the Premier League serves up a weekend's worth of entertainment, with a number of men competing for the role of lead man.

Here, we take a look at five men who could shine above their supporting cast and be the difference maker in their respective games.

Our recommendations will probably prove to be the proverbial kiss of death so don't go lumping on one of these men to net a hat-trick, but take a look and let us know what you think.

5. Stephane Sessegnon
The Benin international has ben granted a work permit just in time to face his former club Sunderland.

Sessegnon only signed for the Baggies on transfer deadline day and what better way to get your new fans onside than to bag the winner on your debut.

In his time at Sunderland Sessegnon proved he can be a match winner on his day and we think he'll be keen to prove a point to old boss Paolo Di Canio.

4. Daniel Sturridge
Sturridge has quite simply been brilliant so far this season, hitting the back of the net in all four of Liverpool's Premier League games.

Quick and skillful, the strikers ability have never been in doubt but it took a £12million move from Chelsea in January for him to develop the killer instinct that has made him a real contender for the Golden Boot this season.

Southampton won't be an easy team for the Reds to break down but you'd be fool to bet against Sturridge making it five in five.

3. Romelu Lukaku
A trip to West Ham on Saturday will give Everton fans their first opportunity to get a glimpse of loan signing Romelu Lukaku, and we have a feeling they're going to like what they see.

The Belgian is a powerhouse and there's no doubt he's capable of matching, or even bettering, the 17 league goals he grabbed last season.

What a kick in the teeth it'd be for the Hammers if Lukaku, a man they lusted over all summer, were to put them to the sword on his Toffees debut. 

2. Mesut Ozil
At roughly 1:30pm on Sunday the Emirates stadium will erupt as Mesut Ozil makes his first appearance in front of his home crowd. 

Ozil is a magician, a superstar, a man capable of doing things Arsenal fans haven't seen since Dennis Bergkamp hung up his incredibly talented boots.

Stoke are a much more attractive team under the tutelage of Mark Hughes but we expect them to be no match for Ozil.

This may sound like it's Ozil vs Stoke on Sunday but that's the way we see it because all eyes will be on the German supremo and we're certain he'll relish in the role of star attraction.

1. Joe Hart
Surprised? You shouldn't be. Joe Hart is in need of a big performance more than any other City player, and what better time to pull it out the bag than on derby day.

Manchester United will have at least one clear cut chance on Sunday, but an on-form Hart can keep any team out, and if City are to take anything from the game the England stopper is going to need to forget the mistakes that have littered his season so far and produce a performance more befitting of England's number one.

City, with all their riches, could sign almost any keeper in the world, but it's a sign of Hart's class that they've stuck by their man and we expect the blonde bombshell to prove his class on Sunday.
