A midfielder is the conductor of any footballing orchestra. Be it an attacking midfielder, a holding midfielder of just a normal CM, stringing passes is the most crucial job aspect of each’s work. Of course, choosing the best midfielders in the world is a highly subjective task. There are a lot of positions and roles someone under the broad umbrella of midfielder can fulfil. There are some who contribut more in the attacking department and some help out the back four. There are also some that sit right in the middle of the park and control the game.

There have been several midfielders in 2022 that can be viewed as top draw based on this year’s performances. Their club form and the part they played in the world cup will be aspects to take into account. So without further ado, here are some of the best midfielders of 2022.

Kevin de Bruyne

Finding another attacking midfielder who can compete with Kevin De Bruyne right now will be challenging; the player has been absolutely masterful for Pep Guardiola lately. When the ball reaches his feet, he shifts into gear and abandons his markers. He always seems to choose the right pass in the opponent’s final third, making it unnecessary to touch the ball into the goal. For attackers, he is a delight to play with because he can pinpoint his teammates from anywhere on the field.

Bruno Fernandes

Bruno’s sharp passing and long shots can enrage fans when they go wrong but are magnificent when they succeed. Fernandes is a consistent scorer and assist producer, and he has an unmatched work ethic and competitive spirit. He exhibits admirable qualities in his ball-striking, vision, and risk-taking. Even though he occasionally displays inconsistent performance, he still possesses many qualities that can cause difficulties for his opponents.

Martin Odegaard

His ability to create plays must rank among the best in the world. Odegaard is one of those players who has a great feel for the game and is blessed with a neat left foot. He has a keen sense of timing and is adept at almost all passes. The exciting project Mikel Arteta is working on at Arsenal features a prominent role from the Norwegian star, who has all the makings of a future Gunners legend. He is getting stronger and stronger. His performance has been extremely important for his team’s Premier League success.
