For Chelsea, they take up two of the three attacking berths behind a lone striker and are integral aspects of their side's approach, especially in the final third.
Aside from occupying similar roles and coincidentally standing at exactly 170 centimetres tall, it's interesting to note just how alike much of their Premier League production has been this season.
Having spent a similar amount of minutes on the pitch, both players have unleashed exactly 60 shots, with Mata scoring 10 goals to Hazard's nine. Each of them passes at 85 percent accuracy and have amazingly managed an almost identical haul of passes in the final third—with Hazard making 831 to Mata's 828.
Away from attack, they have been dribbled past the same amount of times (24), while their tackling and dispossession numbers are also bizarrely close.
Therefore, in an effort to separate them for those not entirely in tune with the impressive Chelsea duo, here's a statistical look at where they do differ on the pitch—only considering their Premier League input.
