English Premier League: Robin van Persie and Each Team's Best Player So Far

The English Premier League is rapidly approaching the midway point, and most teams will know by now where their ambition for the season must lie for the second half of the season.

From Manchester City challenging at the top of the entire league to Bolton Wanderers, who surprisingly prop up the other 19 sides, everybody has had the odd standout player who has made a difference over the first half of the campaign and who is seen as key to fulfilling the team's hopes over the remaining five months.

Here we examine which player from each team has been the most consistently excellent performer, any worthwhile honourable mentions—and which players have flattered to deceive.

Premier League form only is taken into account for the choices, so as to offer all players an even chance across the board, though European/domestic cup exploits will certainly be recounted where appropriate.

Thanks for reading.
