With Christmas almost upon us, it seems like the perfect time to take a look back and the first part of the season.
And, what better way to do that than highlight the 20 best players of the season - according to statistics from WhoScored.com.
The list has a heavy German feel, with a number of players from the Bundesliga scattered throughout the top 20.
That's not to say the Premier League aren't well represented, with Luis Suarez the division's stand-out player so far this season.
Serie 'A' and La Liga also muscle into the action, with the 'big two' unsurprisingly in the mix. However, a number of big names do miss out from all the major divisions.
The headline omissions from England include Wayne Rooney and Mesut Ozil, whilst Real Madrid and Barcelona only have two players each in the list.
Begin the slideshow now, and let us know who you think has been the best player this season...
