2- Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
While there was little question that the Chilean had the footballing prowess to play for Arsenal, there was arguably some question marks about whether he had the right attitude for the English game, having plied his trade for the last few years in Italy and Spain. The faster-tempo game however, suited the winger wonderfully, and he made an unbelievable impact, which culminated in a stunning goal in the FA Cup final. His delicious skill was complimented by his endless desire to run until the ball was retrieved. If Arsene Wenger can add a few players of his calibre and temperament, then the Gunners will surely be contending for the title next year.
1- Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
There was little doubt that the Belgian magician was going to be the best player on the list. His ability on the ball is frightening, and meant that very few opponents attempted to take the ball off him until a couple of their teammates had turned up to – often fail to – help them out. He often received a kicking as those marking him resorted to desperate means to restrict his impact, but he often got straight back up, and ran at them again.
