EPL Power Rankings: Top 5 Midfielders in the Premier League after Matchday 23

Manchester City have kept Liverpool under a lot of pressure for the league title, thanks to their midfield. And a certain Paul Pogba is in the form of his life playing the new creative role assigned to him by Ole Gunnar Solskjær. So with that in mind, let us have a look at top five midfielders in the Premier Leaguer after match day 23:

With the latest news of Barcelona signing Frenkie De Jong for €75m, there is no new need to highlight the importance of midfielders. And the Premier League isn’t different either.


Liverpool have Alisson and VVD at the back and Mo Salah in front, but the Reds still wouldn’t have been where they are right now without Georginio Wijnaldum. The Dutchman has been at his absolute best in the midfield with a jaw-dropping 91. 4% passing accuracy in 21 games. It should come as no surprise that Liverpool conceded 3 goals against Crystal Palace while Gini was out due to an injury.

4. Declan Rice:

After scoring his first goal of the season against Arsenal, Declan Rice continued his good work in the midfield against Bournemouth, but was unfortunate to end up on the losing side. The Englishman finished the game with 93% passing accuracy, 6 duels won and 6 ball recoveries. Rice’s rise at the big stage continues as the 20-year old has been one of the best performers of the season in Premier League’s rest of the pack.
