Last season, most of the English footballing world were feasting their eyes on the free-flowing dynamic football if Chelsea's "Three Musketeers" Eden Hazard, Oscar, and Juan Mata. 

That trio remains to be one of the most lethal partnerships in the league, however, it seems the west London club have a new one which is just starting to gather pace.

Chelsea's three Belgians, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne are at the forefront of their country's new uprise as one of the most powerful national teams in Europe. 

The three members have been bought together over time, with De Bruyne joining in the club in January 2012 for a reported fee of £6.7m.

Romelu Lukaku put pen to paper at Stamford Bridge on the 18th of August for a fee in the region of £18m, whereas Eden Hazard snubbed the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in order to secure his move to Chelsea.

The trio had been in fine form for club and country in the 2012/13 season, with Lukaku and De Bruyne on loan at WBA and Bundesliga outfit, Werder Bremen, respectively.

Hazard enjoyed a brilliant debut season with Chelsea, and it seems all of them have carried their form from last term into this year's pre-season. 

Lukaku showed at WBA last season that he could emulate Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League, showing strength, pace and a clinical eye for goal.

De Bruyne helped his Werder Bremen side stay in the first division in Germany with 10 goals and nine assists, subsequently bagging the club's player of the year award, not too bad for a loanee.

Hazard underlined why he is held at such high regard by all the European powerhouses by producing exhilarating football. 

But now the trio look like they're set to lineup together come the start of the Premier League season.

Mourinho seems a huge fan of De Bruyne in particular, commenting that "the kid is a fantastic player" and "he is going to be a key player on the pitch" so expect these young exciting Belgians to take the Premier League by storm.
