Premier League: 10 most important players for the title run-in (1)

With over half of the season completed, there are only a few months of Premier League action remaining before we see who is crowned the deserving champions of such a wildly unpredictable campaign.

Just who is going to win it is anybody's guess. While Arsenal's unexpectedly strong form has shown little sign of dropping off, Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City remain many people's favourites - if only they could permanently remedy their questionable away form.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea have not been at their best, yet are still very much in the thick of the title race.

Under Mourinho's former protegee Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, Liverpool look finally to have been transformed into an outfit capable of ending their mediocre recent reputation. Merseyside rivals Everton may not be considered realistic contenders but they are also still in the mix.

Tottenham are given little chance by most given the turmoil that has surrounded White Hart Lane this season, but Tim Sherwood looks to have at least stirred a modicum of passion from his underperfoming stars.

Lastly, Manchester United appear to be in freefall following Sunday's disappointing FA Cup defeat to Swansea.

Although it is certainly not mathematically impossible for them to successfully defend their crown, you have to think it would take a monumental effort from the Red Devils - coupled with an alarming collapse from one of their rivals - for that to happen.

Here, GMS looks at 10 players whose form will perhaps be most vital if their respective teams are to taste top-flight glory in May.
