Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Chelsea star Eden Hazard head a list of all the attacking midfielder in Europe for their performances in 2015, according to a study by the CIES Football Observatory in association with Opta.
Ozil’s presence in that list may surprise many given the perception many have of Arsenal’s record signing, but he is still the same player Jose Mourinho regarded as “the best No.10 in the world” (via Sky Sports).
Check the list of the top five attacking midfielders below.

The Belgian wizard was given a rating of 100 by CIES after a sensational 2015 so far, as Hazard looks to drag Chelsea over the line in their bid to claim a first league title since 2010.
