Chelsea signed Eden Hazard for £32m in the summer of 2012 - and he is really starting to live up to that price tag.
The price tag would have put a lot of pressure on the Belgium international but after making his name at French club Lille, he has started to deliver in the Premier League and has become a regular in Jose Mourinho's setup at Chelsea
Hazard started his career at Lille and made 147 appearances for the French outfit, impressing numerous clubs, and it was a matter of selection for Hazard who eventually chose the 2012 Champions League winners.
His international career has also been impressive for the ever-improving Belgium, with 41 appearances, starting at the age of 17, showing his attacking prowess.
Chelsea currently sit second in the Premier League table after a successful start to the season under Mourinho, with Hazard influential on the wing, being able to use his skill to take it around any full-back in the world.
There has been criticism of Hazard's defensive duties and this did cause an issue in his first season, leaving Chelsea exposed on the left wing. Under Mourinho, however, every player has to work their place in the team and he has certainly showed his through the improvements that have been made in his game.
The link-up play that he has been able to develop with Juan Mata and Oscar can tear apart any defence and a successful season is on the cards for Chelsea's number 17 left winger.
