Son shines brightest
Clicking by the bucket load, you helped catapult a certain South Korea international back into the spotlight following his hat-trick heroics for Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon. Yes, that's right folks, Heung Min Son is our outright winner - and deservedly so (52 per cent).
The Werkself summer signing was at his clinical best on Matchday 12 in a goal-fuelled 5-3 win over former club Hamburger SV, penning his own chapter of Bundesliga history as the first-ever South Korean to score a hat-trick in Germany's top flight. Quite rightly, Son left the Bay Arena to a standing ovation.
There was a tie for second, with VfB Stuttgart's Vedad Ibisevic and FC Bayern München's Franck Ribery sharing the podium on this occasion (13 per cent). The Bosnia-Herzegovina international scored his eighth league strike of the campaign in Sunday's win over SC Freiburg, while Bayern's Ballon d'Or candidate bagged a stunning free kick as the record-writing league leaders cast aside the challenge of FC Augsburg.
Not to be outdone in the dead-ball stakes, VfL Wolfsburg's Ricardo Rodriguez came within a whisker of taking silver (eleven per cent) after netting a free kick of his own that set the Wolves on the road to victory over Borussia Dortmund at the VW Arena and to within a point of the top four.
Kevin-Prince Boateng's brace also deserves a mention (six per cent). FC Schalke 04 were trailing at home to Werder Bremen, before the Ghanaian powered home two bullet headers to turn the game on its head.
Continuing a theme, Juan Arango completes the ballot (five per cent). His trademark curling strike was the catalyst for Borussia Mönchengladbach's 3-1 win over 1. FC Nürnberg, with the Venezuela international chipping in with an assist for good measure.
