Definitely intriguing to see Morrison up there but perhaps explains WBA's hot start. The rest aren't terribly surprising.

Obviously stats tell one important side of the story, and then there's intangibles that can't be measured with stats.

James Morrison is a very good player, has been underrated for a few years and really makes Albion tick.

It's dated in March 2012, by the way.

Probably. Vidal, Marchisio, and Song are also all up there.

I find the lack of Bastian Schweinsteiger very disturbing.

Not going to lie, I forgot about Schweinsteiger for some reason but I don't think he is as "complete" as the other listed (other than Song). I feel as though the others are better defensively and comparable going forward.

I would probably put him right behind Yaya and ahead of Vidal
