The most exciting part of the teams framework is the attacking three who support the main striker. These guys have a job to do in both halves of the pitch and the defensive aspect of the game is as important as their work going forward.

We saw the combination of Mata, Hazard and Oscar (MAZACAR) under Di Matteo flourish at the beginning of the season with everyone (including me) raving about them. Under Rafa Benitez, we saw the threesome broken up and Victor Moses make one of those positions his own with really impressive performances and goals and with him away, we have struggled to maintain the balance and threat we have in the side with Moses there.

The question is, what do YOU think is our strongest attacking three?

The attacking three.

Juan Mata is hands down the best attacking midfielder we have at this club and starts every time in my book. Chelsea without Mata looks a shadow of the side with him in it and it's very noticeable. The conductor of Chelsea's attacks, Mata has it all. An eye for a pass, he can beat his man and can score goals as he has proven time and time again this season already.

Eden Hazard has made more of a low key start to his Chelsea career. Don't get me wrong here, he has made important contributions to the team and will grow into the side and without question, will become just as vital as Juan Mata. Hazard is calm in possession, very rarely loses the ball and like Mata, has an eye for a pass, can beat his man and score goals.

Victor Moses has made much more of an impact on our football team that we could have imagined when we signed him. He is much more direct in his approach to the game than the others which gives us a different attacking threat. Alongside Mata and Hazard, he provides us with a natural balance to the attacking three and interchanges positions with Hazard causing the opposition a problem.

Oscar made a great start to his Chelsea career through the middle with Juan Mata starting out wide, scoring some important and amazing goals. Forced out of the side due to the form of Moses, Oscar had struggled to make an impact under Benitez. With the absence of Moses, Oscar was asked to play a role wide right and although he did his best, it's not his position. However, Oscar has come up with some all important goals in recent weeks to give argument to his inclusion in one of these positions.

Marko Marin hasn't been given much of a chance this season due to injury first of all and due to the form of the other players in the side. When given a chance he hasn't really impressed and shown anyone what he can offer us in these positions. There is an argument that with plenty of "number 10's" in the team, Marin is a natural wide player and should be considered.

Yossi Benayoun is back in the fold and yet another "number 10" available to Rafa Benitez. A squad player in his time at Chelsea for the most part, I can't see that changing. He does however have ability and could provide a different option to the likes Oscar and Moses even though I know who I would rather see playing.

Frank Lampard is the last of our option in one of these positions. Forgetting his work without the ball, Lampard provides us with options again further forward. He can pick a pass either short or long out wide or over the top and most importantly of all, provide the team with goals on a regular basis.

Who do YOU think is our strongest attacking three?

Have your say on our midfield two here , back four here and main striker here.
