The midfield is the engine room, the metronome and the straw that stirs the drink in any football team anywhere in the world.

The Central midfield on the other hand is the nerve center of any successful team but the unique thing about the position is that the high class can come in many different forms.

Midfielders are tough-tackling players that cover plenty of grass and win the ball every time on the pitch as well.

Jude Bellingham just like other midfielders can switch to either foot especially when dribbling through opponents and threading the right pass.

Midfielders also set the tone for their teams’ play through the strength of their distribution, and they are always aware of their teammates’ movements and constantly able to pick them out on the run. Hence, any team can fail without quality in the middle of the park.

Without further ado, here’s our Top Ten Midfielders in Europe’s top five leagues in 2023.
