Join us in the poll sponsored by FIFA 19 and vote for your favorite defensive midfielder below but before that here is a quick snippet on some of the players:
N'Golo Kanté: A player that is as electric as it gets. His ability to cover the ground, moving constantly day-in and day-out has earned numerous applauses from colleagues and opponents alike. A lower center of gravity often gives him the upper hand during battles in the center of the pitch. Overall FIFA 19 rating: 89
Nemanja Matić: Apart from his ability to look up the field and pass a ball through Matic is known for his defensive involvement. As an intelligent player, he does not have the pace to cover the pitch as his ex-Chelsea compatriot does but his ability to fill in the spaces is what is important. Overall FIFA 19 rating: 86
Fernandinho: The only player on the list who better is known as a box-to-box midfielder has cemented himself in the very role thanks to his superior able to break-up attacks and more importantly someone the like of Silva and de Bruyne can depend on as they focus on the offensive end. Overall FIFA 19 rating: 86
Sergio Busquets: While the Spaniard is notorious for his on-pitch theatricals, let it be known that he is the core member of the triangular nature of what defines the Culés. Overall FIFA 19 rating: 88
Carlos Henrique Casimiro: The Brazilian's positioning and distribution continues to improve at a faster speed. His approach to the game is characterized by these three words - structural, organizational and technical. Overall FIFA 19 rating: 88
