I’m not sure he has been the best player in the Premier League but he’s definitely one of them. He’s stood around watching team-mates win a World Cup and two FA Cups for him but Arsenal are now serious title challengers largely due to the German’s form.” Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur) – Click the right arrow to find out which other players have impressed Adrian Durham this season… – “For a teenager to arrive from League One and look at home straight away in the Premier League – and the England team – is absolutely stunning. Take a bow, Dele Alli. He’s been a key part of Spurs’ revival this season.” 5 Jack Butland (Stoke City) – Click the right arrow to find out which other players have impressed Adrian Durham this season… – “Time after time, game after game, Jack Butland has made stunning saves to bail his Stoke team out. It’s a position on the field which rarely gets a look in when it comes to the top awards but he is a truly brilliant goalkeeper and, for my money, the best in the Premier League, so far this season. It takes something special to put Joe Hart under pressure for his England No.1 jersey and Jack is certainly doing that.” Some people reckon it’s not been a great season in the Premier League, so far.I think it’s been competitive and exciting and while I understand the point people are making about a lack of quality, there are certain individuals who stand out.I’ve picked out five players and named five substitutes too.Click the right arrow above to find out which players Adrian Durham has chosen…Adrian Durham’s substitutes:Odion Ighalo (Watford)Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City)Romelu Lukau (Everton)Yohan Cabaye (Crystal Palace)Ross Barkley (Everton) 5 5 Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – Click the right arrow to find out which other players have impressed Adrian Durham this season… – “How can you ignore the stunning form of Jamie Vardy this season? In a remarkable year for Leicester, his goals have taken them to the top of the table and have earned him a fairly secure place in the England squad. It’s not just the goals though; he gets fans off their seats.” Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – “Factor in the pressure of the price tag after his acrimonious move from Liverpool, as well as the expectation levels, and Raheem Sterling has delivered, even if he’s hated everywhere he goes. Even Leicester City fans were booing him the other night. Injuries to key players like David Silva, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero have put the spotlight on Sterling and he’s delivered in the Premier League and in Europe, where he was only one of two Premier League players to feature in UEFA’s team of the Champions League group stage. He’s only just turned 21 and England should be proud.”last_img
