The midfield happens to be the vital bridge between attack and defence in the game of football and it is a significant position in the game. Also, midfielders are considered to be the inventive part of a football outfit. The entire game plan can fall apart if the midfielders are not on the money. Over the years, we have witnessed several key players occupying this spot for their respective teams, so today, we will list three of the finest midfielders in operations currently.
James Maddison (Leicester City)
It remains to be seen whether Gareth Southgate includes him in the England squad for the all-important event in Qatar. However, Maddison has so far had an impressive season as a midfielder for Leicester City. Unfortunately, his efforts have been unable to turn the tide in favour of his team. But Leicester’s fortunes cannot take anything away from the brilliance of this Englishman, for he has netted six goals and provided 11 assists in the 2022-23 season.
Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich)
Another midfielder to leave a lasting impression this season has been Jamal Musiala. Playing for Bayern Munich he has found the net seven times and given 5 assists in 11 outings this season. The half-Nigerian-half-German happens to be the top scorer in the under-19 category across Europe’s top five leagues this season by netting 10 times in all competitions. Looking at his achievements it would not be a surprise if he makes it to the German squad eventually for the 2022 World Cup.
Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
His consistency has been unparalleled, and the same has worked to the advantage of Man City. The midfielder has found the net three times and plotted nine goals in 12 Premier League outings this season. Besides, he has given four assists in the Champions League fixtures. The Belgian has performed exceedingly for City over the years and remains an integral part of Guardiola’s scheme of things in the City. So, the Belgium team will lean heavily on him to get off the block in the marquee event this year.
