We are about halfway through the Premier League season. New signings have had a chance to bed in, new managers have had time to lay out their blueprints for success, and players are stringing together some form.
As each club looks to the January transfer window to improve upon their current stock, we take a glance at the current rosters and honour the most improved players this season.
To qualify, each player has to have played in the Premier League for the 2012-13 season; cross-league comparisons are difficult to assess and make. It's largely a comparison of a player's form from this season and last season, so anyone who's made great strides in the past 12 months will feature highly.
