Top 10 Midfielders of 2012: 10 - Eden Hazard
Eden Hazard has made a blistering start to the 12/13 season. Assisting 7 of Chelsea's 9 league goals.
After a long summer of transfer speculation, he finally got his move to reigning European Champions and has not looked back since.
However, it was last season at Lille where he truly made his name for the Elite European Clubs. At Lille, Hazard became only the second player to win the Ligue 1 Player of The Season award two years in a row. He is also the first non-french player to win the award, as well as the youngest.
With 20 goals an 15 assists for Lille this season and at just the age of 21, there was no surprise Hazard was sought after by all the Elite Clubs around Europe.
Snubbing interest from Manchester United and Manchester City prior to his move to Chelsea, and the revealing his move via Twitter gave English media an odd viewing of Hazard, yet his performances already for Chelsea have made everyone see the ability Hazard truly has, and why Chelsea were desperate for his signature.
