Best midfielders in the Premier League this season
Who is number 1?

Midfielders are probably the most important players on the pitch. They are crucial in setting up the style of play and controlling the flow of the game.

These players are the link between attack and defence often playing defence-splitting passes and breaking up opposition play as and when required. This season in the Premier League, there have been some midfielders who have been in prime form for their clubs.

All the best teams in this league have that magical midfield player capable of winning them the game almost single-handedly. Without much ado, let us take a look at the 5 best midfielders in the Premier League at the moment:

#5 Paul Pogba (Manchester United)

Paul Pogba is undoubtedly Manchester United's most talented player

Manchester United star Paul Pogba might not have performed at his best in the last few matches, but there is no denying the fact that he started the season extremely well. In the initial months, the former Juventus star was controlling the game with his incisive passing, dribbling and imposing physical presence.

With United now heading to the business end of the season, Mourinho will be hoping that the talented Frenchman rediscovers his best form once again. An on-song Pogba can destroy any opposition and the way he is perceived this season might well hinge on his performances in the coming few weeks.

Having said that, one must not forget that in 17 starts for the Red Devils in the Premier League this season, Pogba has managed 9 assists and 3 goals and has also won the man of the match award 3 times. If one keeps the transfer fee aside, Pogba's performances have actually been extremely good this season.
