Best dribbler in the league?

The little Belgian is launching a challenge for Player of the Year-elect Kevin de Bruyne’s title.

After a slow start to the season, only registering two points by Game Week 6, Hazard has picked up 55 points in his last five games.

And yet, still only 12.5% of you have selected him.

Chelsea have a kind fixture list for December including homes games against Southampton, Bhrighton and Stoke.

Get him in.

Mesut Ozil

Ozil ready to boss the bottom half

OK, we know Arsenal lost to Manchester United but Ozil really is controlling games these days.

He bagged 17 points against Huddersfield and the Gunners have a good run against teams in the bottom half of the table to finish off the year – Ozil likes those games.

A visit from Liverpool in a Friday night game will be an acid test to see if he can pull something out in the big game, but he is hitting a purple patch right now.

He only costs £4.8 million and could repay those pennies handsomely in December.

Abdoulaye Doucouré

We can’t believe only 0.5% of managers have selected you either

The Mali international has been one of the findings of the season.

Doucouré has been consistent in the league this term, getting a WhoScored.com rating above seven in 11 of his 14 games.

He’s also got more points this season than the likes of Jamie Vardy, Heung-min Son and Willian.

Watford have a very straightforward festive schedule and as only 0.5% of managers have the midfielder in their team take this chance to get a jump on the competition.

Philippe Coutinho

The prolonged will he, won’t he transfer saga did not help Coutinho’s season preparation but he looks to be firing on all cylinders right now.

Liverpool are banging them in and the Brazilian’s under-the-wall free kick against Brighton was pure class.

Other than the Merseyside derby and a trip to the Emirates, Liverpool round off the year with favourable home games against West Brom, Swansea and Leicester as well as a visit to Bournemouth.

With that fixture list expect goals and assists and lots of them for Phil.

Coutinho has scored ratings above nine in two of his last four games – 94.8% of people have not cottoned onto this one yet.

Jamie Vardy

Leicester have a scary list of Christmas games including, Man City and Man United at the King Power and Watford and Liverpool on the road. Ouch.

But remember a time just two seasons ago when Leicester were fearless?

You heard it here first that we are going to see the Vardy that used to break goal scoring records in December.

He scored a delightful lobbed volley against Spurs last week and has been integral to the Foxes revival under Claude Puel.

A relative bargain at £4.3 million.
