3: Ramires - Chelsea

Another Chelsea star who somewhat slips under the radar with his brilliant performances week in, week out, Ramires is the epitome of the term 'midfield engine'.

Though uncharacteristically robust for a Brazilian centre-mid, Ramires' high energy levels and constant haranguing of the opposition mean that he is rarely caught off guard. Obviously whilst playing alongside the likes of Oscar and Hazard he's rarely the player who grabs the headlines during Chelsea's frequent victories, but when he's not in the team the midfield doesn't look half as secure.

The 26-year-old has been courted by Real Madrid in recent months, if you're a Chelsea fan then pray he doesn't leave.
