Dimitar Berbatov Fulham
STAR MAN
Dimitar Berbatov
Always classy and often deadly in front of goal, Fulham pulled off one of the signings of last summer when the Bulgarian striker joined from Manchester United. Berbatov enjoyed a successful first season at the club, scoring 15 times in the Premier League.
