20. Jack Grealish – Aston Villa
The Villa youngster has finally been given a chance to shine under Tim Sherwood, and he has not let the manager down. Playing a key role in Villa’s revival and passage to the FA Cup final, big things will be expected of him next season.
19. Esteban Cambiasso – Leicester City
Veteran Argentine Cambiasso has been an absolute coup for the Foxes, and his ability to hold off opposition attacks and quickly turn the tide into counter attacks has made Nigel Pearson’s men dangerous, especially over the past four weeks.

17. Marouane Fellaini – Manchester United
Playing a key part in back-to-back victories over Tottenham and Liverpool, further continuing his metamorphosis under Louis Van Gaal back into one of the Premier League’s most feared midfielders.
16. Charlie Adam – Stoke City
Adam has got his shooting boots on this month, popping off an astonishing 15 attempts in his previous five appearances. Bagging goals against Southampton and Sunderland, there was only one that really mattered – that long range effort against Chelsea from the halfway line.
