Talking about the cream of the crop players so far is quite the debatable subject, here we try our best to choose the eleven that have gone on to show statistically and consistently that they merit their place.

Goalkeeper : Wojciech Szczęsny

The Polish shot-stopper has been fantastic for Arsenal this season, impacting the game with top class saves on a regular basis and being ever-present for the Gunners this season, it is easy to forget he struggled to find any form just last season.

Left-back : Leighton Baines

Playing in all of Everton's matches up to a point of injury recently - the England international is consistently a source of assists, solid defending, reliable passing and even chipping in with the odd breath-taking free kick, including a brace against West Ham.

Center-backs : Dejan Lovren & Martin Škrtel

Both are included in this XI for similar reasons, impeccable and reliable defending. The two have kept their teams high up the table with consistent and valiant efforts day-in, day-out - also chipping in with the odd goal.

Right-back : Seamus Coleman

Everton seem to have a habit of raising exceptional full-backs. The Irish international is an engine that will not stop - defending very successfully, defence-dividing runs and of course a sharp eye for goal. 

Left-mid/wing : Eden Hazard 

An obvious choice with good reason. A deadly force for Chelsea charging at defenders, ability to pick out any team mate and a lethal eye for goal - still at only 23 years old, he can only get better.

Center-mids : Aaron Ramsey & Yaya Touré

These two players have been unplayable for their clubs this season. Both with the versatility to play anywhere around midfield naturally and ability to set up, as well as score goals prolifically from any of those positions definitely deserves the recognition.

Right-mid/wing : Jesús Navas

This one was a tricky one with all the top teams swapping around their wingers so often, but this guy definitely came out top. Playing in most of Manchester City's league games he has seemed to always create something out of nothing - scoring the odd very impressive goal, finding a teammate with a deadly and precise cross or through-balling onto someone with superb vision for a winger.

Strikers : Sergio Agüero & Luis Suárez

Possibly the easiest choices to make in this selection. Both ultra-prolific for their teams, both with fantastic vision to spot an open teammate and the fact they do this pretty much every single match they play.They are becoming two of the most lethal strikers in the world and both still have plenty more to come.

Honourable mentions: 

There are of course the players that haven't made their way into this XI, but definitely made the shortlist. The likes of Wayne Rooney, Álvaro Negredo, David Silva, Steven Gerrard, Vincent Kompany, Petr Čech and some others have shown they are key to their clubs' success.
