Mohamed Salah courtesy of his performances this season has established himself as the best player in the world at the moment, with the Egyptian scoring a staggering 11 goals in 10 games so far.

The 29-year-old has also registered six assists, and he will be key if Liverpool are to win the league title come the end of the season.

2. Most assists - Paul Pogba (Man United) - 7 assists

Paul Pogba has been a player who has been widely criticised by the pundits and media for his inconsistent performances for Manchester United, but it should be noted that he started the season brilliantly - as seen by the seven assists he has registered in only nine games.

The midfielder however picked up a hamstring injury while on international duty with France, and is only expected to return back to action in the last week of December.

3. Most saves - Tim Krul (Nowich City) - 40 saves

Norwich City might be currently struggling in the league as they are placed rock bottom with just one in 11 games, but there is no doubt that it would have been even more worse if not for the saves made by goalkeeper, Tim Krul.

The Dutchman has made 40 saves so far, which is the highest among all the shot stoppers in the league, and he for sure cannot do more in goal for his club.

4. Most passes - Joao Cancelo (Man City) - 862 passes

Joao Cancelo has established himself as arguably the best wing-back in the league, with the Portugese star capable of playing on either side of the pitch and excelling in any position.

The 27-year-old was brilliant for Manchester City last season and has carried his good form into this campaign, registering the most passes for any player with 862 - while also providing two assists in 11 games so far.
