There’s a reason the Premier League is often regarded as the best soccer league globally, and this is due to the availability of some of the best midfielders in the division. Over the years, EPL teams have led the all-time transfer spending list amongst Europe’s top five League.
This has led to the influx of some of the best legs and young talents the world has to offer. And when it comes to midfielders who are game-changers, the league has got them all. Indeed, the English top flight houses some of the best legs around who have been consistent at the highest level.
Interesting Football looks at best midfielders in the Premier League this season.
1. Rodri (Manchester City)
Last season, Rodri was the man who scored the most important goal of the season for Manchester City in the Champions League final.
Rodri is always in the shadow of De Bruyne and, until recently, Gundogan. Now De Bruyne is out injured, and Gundogan is playing for Barcelona, so the role of Rodri in Manchester City is even more important.
2. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
Kevin De Bruyne is injured and will be out of the field for some time. We already can see how Manchester City and Haaland struggle without him. However, his skills and magic are undisputed, and he still is one of the best midfielders in the league.
3. James Madison (Tottenham Hotspur)
Tottenham basically “stole” Madison from Leicester for only 40 million pounds. He is already a captain and a real leader on the pitch. He fits perfectly with Son, and it’s positive for the whole club. Now Tottenham are among the main candidates for winning the title.
4. Yves Bissouma (Tottenham Hotspur)
Bissouma is one of the most hardworking players in the league. He is perhaps the most underrated midfielder in the Premier League, considering how much he means to the team. Yves Bissouma is equally suitable for the offensive actions of the team as he is for closing and interrupting opponents’ attacks.
5. Declan Rice (Arsenal)
Rice proved his class even when he was a member of West Ham, and he was especially good last season when he led the team to Europa Conference League trophy. Now, in Arsenal, he brought stability to the team, which this team has lacked for years.
6. Martin Ødegaard (Arsenal)
Arsenal’s captain, Odegaard, is one of the best team leaders in the world. He knows how and when to slow or speed up the match, which only the best midfielders in history knew how to do. Many are still surprised at how easily Real Madrid let him go when he is on Modric or Cross level.
7. Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)
Manchester United are far from their glory days, and every match has been like torture to them recently. However, their captain, Fernandes, is among the best midfielders in the world and the Premier League
8. Bruno Guimaraes
The Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes came to the Premier League from French Ligue 1, where he played for O. Lyon, and many doubted him.
However, last season, he helped the team to reach the top 4 and qualify for the Champions League, and now he is one of the best midfielders in the league.
9. Dominik Szoboszlai (Liverpool)
It seems that when Klopp is spending, he spends his transfer budget carefully and classy. He brought Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig, and he is already paying off in the Premier League. He is becoming irreplaceable in Liverpool’s midfield.
10. Moises Caicedo (Chelsea)
Caicedo is one of the best things that happened to the Premier League last season.
He was the year’s revelation when he played for Brighton, and now he has great performances in Chelsea. He is even better alongside Enzo, and slowly, he is becoming one of the best midfielders in the world.
