Are we looking at the Premier League’s player of the season so far?

Although a large portion of the current term obviously remains to be played at this particular stage in the proceedings, the 2015/16 campaign has so far produced one of the most captivating Premier League seasons in recent memory.

 

No one single team – except the mighty Leicester City perhaps – seem to have taken the English top-flight by storm as of yet, there have been upsets galore ahead of the New Year – and although it remains tough to predict just what lies in wait across the remainder of this ever enjoyable season – it really does seem as if anything could happen come the culmination of the current campaign.

 

So then, who has ultimately outshone all his individual competition this term as the overall player of the season so far?

 

Well, although Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil has recently taken many strong plaudits among the English top-flight this season…

 

 

…there are of course those who fail to be won over by the German’s exploits in the Gunners jersey thus far…

 

 

West Ham’s Dimitri Payet initially saw much praise come his way before suffering a frustratingly timed injury a good few weeks back…

 

 

…yet it seems Odion Ighalo and Watford FC have seemingly stepped up their game in the talented Frenchman’s absence…

 

 

However, as Leicester City’s triumphant form arguably goes down as the most significant talking point of the entire season so far, perhaps the King Power Stadium evidently plays host to the Premier League’s best player in 2015/16.

Jamie Vardy has obviously amassed a great deal of admiration in recent weeks for his record-breaking goal-scoring exploits this season…

 

 

…but Riyad Mahrez seemingly takes the crown above all else…

 

 

 

The in-form Foxes man has recorded some great stats this term it must be said…

 

 

…leaving many to question the overall validity of the Premier League if the Algerian international fails to win the ultimate individual accolade come the end of term…

 

 

In the end, Riyad Mahrez ultimately deserves all the relevant credit so far in 2015/16, and easily represents the most impressive player of the season going into the remainder of the domestic campaign…
