The Belgian goalkeeper looks a great buy for Liverpool this summer, after his impressive start to the season. He made the £9 million move from Sunderland and looks to be a great bit of business by manager Brendan Rodgers.
So far he has kept 4 clean sheets and saved a penalty in their match at home to Stoke City. If he keeps this form up, there’s no reason why he can’t continue to rack up those clean sheets and help keep Liverpool at the right end of the table.

West Brom completed the loan signing of the French International from Marseille and it seems to be a shrewd bit of business from Steve Clarke.

5. Gareth Barry
When Roberto Martinez took over at Everton, he had the summer transfer window to tinker with his side and the loan signing of Barry from Man City has proved to be a great capture for the Toffees. The defensive midfielder links the team together well with the approach Martinez has brought to the Merseyside team.

3. Dejan Lovren
Lovren made the move from Lyon for an estimated fee of £8.5 and is one of the best signings that was made during the summer.

The centre-back also scored the winner against Liverpool at Anfield in a 1-0 win.

The powerful Belgian forward was for some reason allowed to leave on loan by Chelsea and he has got Everton off to an excellent start, with 5 goals in 7 league appearances. for the big . Another good addition from Roberto Martinez, Lukaku has justified the hype with a string of outstanding displays so far this campaign. If he carries on his good form then Chelsea won’t be so generous by loaning him out again next year.

Arsenal’s most consistent performer this season. The former Ac Milan midfielder re-joined the North London club and has got off to an absolute flyer. He has been one of the most creative players in the side this season and has broken the play down well to get his team going again. A relative steal on a free transfer, Flamini has proven that he still has what it takes in an Arsenal side looking to mount an assault on the Premier League title.
