5. Christian Benteke:
The former Aston Villa striker struggled to find a place in the starting XI of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, but Alan Pardew cited an opportunity to sign the Belgian to improve his squad at Crystal Palace. After signing for a record fee for Palace, Benteke has turned around his form to surprise many. He has already been involved in 8 eight goals this season in spite of Palace’s poor form. He has looked sharp, won the most duels in the Premier League this season and his presence noticed in almost every game. It has turned out a great signing for Palace and Pardew.

4. Nemanja Matic:
One of the biggest reasons for Chelsea’s downfall last season and that was the form of Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic. Matic’s return to the Premier League was quite a successful one with some brilliant holding play in the midfield. But it all went wrong for him last season, instigating a lot of rumours saying he might leave Stamford Bridge. But it is safe to say that along with Kante, Matic has brutally dominated the midfield and has been very effective for the Blues to help Conte and his side to be at the top of the table right now.
3. Theo Walcott:
Walcott has always been criticised for his inconsistent performances which has seen his career not reach the height one expected to. But he has silenced his doubters this season, getting involved in 11 goals in 17 appearances this season. He has been a threat on the right wing and hasn’t shied away drifting to the centre to provide himself with a goal-scoring opportunity. He has been England’s most effective player this season and has a long way to go with more than half of the season left.
2. Victor Moses:
As much surprising it is to see Moses’ name on this list, it is true that the Nigerian has done immensely well to be on this list. At first, Antonio Conte to find the right formation and the right set of players at Chelsea but with his change in formation, Chelsea has done wonders, and Moses has flourished amazingly in the right wing back position. He has been strong defensively and offered equally well in the attack to cement his place in Chelsea’s starting XI.
1. Jordan Henderson:
The Liverpool captain had a poor season under Jurgen Klopp’s first season at Anfield last year. The Englishman kept on with his hard work and here he is at the top of this list with the change in form he has brought upon. Henderson’s passing has been nothing short of brilliant. He has had the most passes in the league this season including the most forward passes and most passes in the final third. He may not be involved in the goals, but it is his passing and presence that has been very vital to Liverpool’s success this season
