3. Dale Stephens (Brighton)
Dale Stephens is an integral part of Brighton’s promotion push this season. Putting in some dominant performances in midfield for the Seagulls, the former Charlton man provides some much needed solidity in the middle of the park. With an average pass success rate of over 84%, and with four goals and four assists, Stephens shows all the hallmarks of a top quality midfielder needed to sustain a promotion push.
