The Tottenham Hotspur and England talisman is Mauricio Pochettino’s hope in making sure that his team end the drought of not winning the league in the 21st century. He has been in fine form and is the reason why the team is second in league table. However face a daunting task against North London rivals Arsenal, whom themselves are title contenders.

The Arsenal and Chilean international has been in poor form, which has led to his team losing two consecutive league games and losing ground in title contention. However, his manager Arsene Wenger is banking on Chilean’s hard working ethic to fire his team back into title contention when they meet rivals, Spurs.

  1. Jamie Vardy (Leicester City F.C)

What a story! From being unknown, to firing a team like Leicester City to the top of the competitive Barclays Premier Leauge, is a quiet remarkable achievement. The Englishman whom his career has took a sensational direction, is hoping to keep his hard working team at the top of the standings. His manager Claudio Ranieri is expecting him to get back to scoring ways. But it is not going to be smooth sailing, as they meet stubborn Watford away from home, whom themselves have their own agenda of pushing for the European spot.

  1. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City F.C)

The little Argentine is Manuel Pellegrini’s Ace. The team has been poor which has led them to losing ground in title contention. They suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Liverpool which piled more misery and dent their chances of winning the league. However with Aguero on his side, there is hope. The same man fired them to their first league trophy after years in 2012. His never die attitude was the centre of their success, Pellegrini will be hoping to see more of that when they travel to Carrow Road to face in trouble Norwich City.

  1. Riyad Mahrez

What a signing! Probably the cheapest signing in footballing history to make such an impact, the Algerian was only signed for £400 000. However his ability on the pitch tells a different story. He is one of the reasons why Leicester is at the top of the league at the moment. Ranieri will be counting on him to dazzle the Watford backline with his pace and skill.
