With so many truly superb midfielders currently plying their trade on these shores, picking just two to make this list proved to be a particularly tricky exercise. However, the first we have settled on is Kompany's Belgian compatriot, Hazard.
With his low centre of gravity, flawless technique and admirable pace, the former Lille man has been a delight to watch since arriving from Ligue 1 amid great fanfare during the summer of 2012.
While he can occasionally irritate with a habit of going to ground a little too easily, Hazard is a truly world-class talent who Chelsea should endeavour to keep hold of as he progresses towards the prime of what is sure to be a glittering career.
