10. Adam Lallana
Southampton captain Adam Lallana has led by example from the first whistle this season, the catalyst for a strong start to the season which looks set to be rewarded with a comfortable top-half finish.
Mauricio Pochettino's side is bursting with young talent but their outstanding performer on a consistent basis this season has been Lallana, with the 25-year-old registering nine goals and eight assists in his 33 Premier League games.
Lallana has the division's top clubs watching his progress closely and expect transfer speculation to reach fever pitch this summer, with the versatile playmaker surely set to start for England at the World Cup if the team is picked on form.
