DECEMBER UPDATE

Dele Alli’s run inside of the top 100 was incredibly short-lived as he falls back off the list to 102, while Santi Cazorla is the only other departee as his injury troubles continue. Cesar Azpilicueta and Edin Dzeko are the two incoming players for their fantastic performances in recent months for Chelsea and Roma respectively while Harry Kane is the biggest riser of the month and Nolito is the biggest decliner.
