Marouane Fellaini Spearheads Belgium's Premier League Stars (PICTURES)

Marouane Fellaini's Premier League winner and man of the match performance for Everton against Manchester United on Monday continued the good work of Belgium's international stars in English football.

Moussa Dembelé bossed Fulham's midfield in their 5-0 win against Norwich City on Saturday, Romelu Lukaku, on loan from Chelsea, scored on his West Bromwich Albion debut in their defeat of Liverpool, £32m Eden Hazard was instrumental in Chelsea's victory at Wigan while Vincent Kompany captained Manchester City during their comeback versus Southampton.

Thomas Vermaelen, Arsenal's new captain, and Sunderland's Simon Mignolet kept clean sheets against one another while Fellaini has been joined at Goodison Park by compatriot Kevin Mirallas, who revealed he had been in discussions with the Gunners earlier this summer.

Football aficionados caught wind of Belgium's promise a couple of years ago, and most were disappointed this promising and budding golden generation would not be present at the European Championship. A defeat to Germany in their final qualifying match allowed Turkey to take the play-off spot. But the prospect of the Red Devils playing in Rio is one to savour.

Outside of England, Alex Witsel has made waves at Benfica and is regularly linked with a transfer to Real Madrid, while FC Porto's Steven Defour was once the recipient of a sympathetic letter from Sir Alex Ferguson when he broke his leg in 2009. But here is a select Belgian Premier League XI:
