The players we think will prove the most important during the Premier League run-in.
10. Nemanja Matic
It’s no coincidence that Chelsea have only shipped two goals in the seven games Matic has started since he returned to Stamford Bridge in January. Jose Mourinho has always built his title-winning teams on a rock solid defence and the Serbian has further shored-up the Blues midfield, and provided a base from which the likes of Willian, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Oscar can attack. If the Blues are to contain Liverpool and Arsenal in crucial matches in the run-in, Mourinho will need Matic at his imperious best.
