After looking at Chelsea's defensive-midfielders, here's a look at their more attacking ones.
Once again, Jose Mourinho has some great options to chose from and here's a look at his stars:
Personally to me Moses doesn’t fit into the categories of the other attacking midfielder.
The Nigerian international is both fast and strong but lacks that edge of creativity and skills on the ball.
The former Wigan player is able to take the ball all the way down the side of the pitch beating his opponent with sheer power and speed. Moses is definitely a good midfielder however when compared to his fellow team mates I don’t feel moses has the quality to really cement a starting 11 place.
Kevin de Bruyne
De Bruyne had an impressive loan spell at Werder Bremen last season and has come back determined to fight for a place in Chelsea’s line-up and show why he shouldn’t be sent out on loan again.
The young Belgian is impressing both on international level and for the blues showing his amazing ability in Chelsea’ pre-season tour of Asia. With fellow countrymen Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku in the team if De Bruyne is able to link-up well with them there is no stopping what the trio may be able to do not only for Chelsea, but for Belgium. De Bruyne is definitely one to keep your one on in the season to come.
Oscar signed for Chelsea last summer after having an impressive summer at the London Olympics. He is already known for smashing home stunning shots from outside the goalkeepers box and stunning peoples mind with his amazing touches on the ball and powerful attempts at goal.
Most memorably, was his goal against Juventus in the Champions League which won him Chelsea’s goal of the season award.
Oscar has both true Brazilian flair and is a valuable asset to any midfield at any club, with so much talent at a young age he will surely develop into an even greater player and blossom into a superstar of the Premier League.
To some, Hazard may need no introduction. The young Belgian winger has been dazzling the eyes of Premier League followers with his ability to carve open spaces through opposition defences using a fusion of speed and tricks and on his day can embarrass the defender that is up against him.
At such a young age, in his first year in the Premier League Hazard was already nominated for both the Young Player and Player of the year award. If the 22-year-old is able to shine under Jose Mourinho and continue to develop as a player, he could truly become an outstanding and feared player in the world of football.
Chelsea’s two time reigning player of the season, the man who has sat in the middle of the Chelsea attack and shone so brilliantly. With amazing creative abilities Mata is able to set up his team mates with great openings all over the pitch and is almost untouchable at times with his skills on the ball.
With so many talented midfielders along side Mata he should be able to thrive under the amazing talent and continue to shine for Chelsea and supply amazing opportunities for his team mates to smash a ball into the roof of the opponents net.
Andre Schurrle is a rising talent who is already representing Germany on a national stage. At 22, he is both a winger and striker who posses both brilliant positioning and deadly finishing skills. Schurrle is most feared for when he cuts into the middle of the pitch and fires a thumping shot at goal.
If Schurrle is able to improve on his form at Bayern Leverkusen and develop his skills even further, he will be confirmed as a great addition to the already very talented Chelsea midfield.
Even with such talented midfield forces named above there are also younger talents with Lucas Piazon and potential signing Bertrand Traore who will be fighting for these places in several years to come. With all these attacking-midfielder options I think anyone can imagine the tough choices Mourinho will have to make when picking his team. All these midfielders are fantastically talented and should all be watched to see how they develop and grow.
