3. Juan Mata | Chelsea
There are many Premier League players with a sweet left foot, but only a select few with the immaculate passing ability and vision of Chelsea star Juan Mata.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a fine debut season in England with Chelsea during the 2011/12 campaign, but last term he exploded: scoring 20 goals and providing a mind-blowing 35 assists in 64 matches.
Mata is a sensational player and deservedly cleaned up at the Blues' end-of-season awards last season.
