Chelsea's most frequent starting XI are all included in ESPN'S top 50 Premier League players, based on a recent ranking. 

Gary Cahill is the first entrant at #48, whereas Willian and Azpilicueta come in at #44 and #38 respectively. #28 goes to Oscar, with right back Ivanovic named at #18. His defensive partner John Terry is next at #15. 

Thibaut Courtois is rated as the second best 'keeper in the league, behind David De Gea, at #12.  The top 10 is then dominated by Chelsea players, with Matic, Fabregas and Diego Costa placed at #10, #5, and #4. 

Of course, that man Eden Hazard claims the no.1 spot, and ESPN had this to say about the Belgian winger: 

The Premier League's outstanding player this season for his club and what feels like a career-defining season for the player. This certainly could be Hazard's deliverance campaign and, at 24, the speed at which he has moved onto the elite level and stayed there is startling.
