5) Dimitar Berbatov – Since his arrival at Craven Cottage he’s been making appearances in the top 5. This time he was influential in Fulham’s 3-3 draw with Arsenal. Martin Jol must be ecstatic with his signing as he’s helped Fulham make an amazing start to the season. Now 11 games in, he scores a penalty and sets-up two goals in a brilliant 3-3 draw. He is just one of the league’s best players. No question.
4) Marouane Fellaini – Yet another player that keeps getting into the top 5. The Everton midfielder scored again and got another assist in the 2-1 win over Sunderland. It was a fantastic match and Fellaini was just so influential in every move. Sunderland could’ve been 3-0 up before half time but Everton played so well in the second half as they’ve done so many times this season. Fellaini’s influence could see Everton break the top four for the first time in ten years.
3) John Terry – On his return for Chelsea, John Terry scored a brilliant header in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool. He was solid for most of the first half until a clumsy challenge from Suarez saw the England centre half replaced by Gary Cahill. His contribution was clear to see when Chelsea finally conceded with the former England captain off the pitch. It’s probably certain that Chelsea wouldn’t have conceded such a horrible goal with Terry on the pitch.
2) Kevin Nolan – The English player maker scored the only goal in a tight 1-0 win over Newcastle. Nolan joined West Ham whilst they were battling for promotion in the Championship. Ever since he’s been at the top of his game and vital to their success. This season West Ham have proved people wrong as they’ve fought hard not to face early trouble. It’s a wonder why Newcastle let him go and didn’t offer more money for his services. The draw of big Sam was the major reason why he joined the Hammers.
1) Javier Hernandez – The Mexican came off the bench at half-time and rescued United from a horrific defeat. He was given two of the goals but the other was given as a Ron Vlaar own goal. October was just a brilliant month for the Little Pea as he was voted United’s player of the month. Since his brace at Braga, he’s been on a roll and vital to United’s typical come backs. He’s showing why he’s been portrayed as this world class goal scorer. The arrival of RvP has been key to this success as it has given Chicharito a higher standard of work ethic.
