I'm currently looking for the best way to fill up my midfield in a 4-4-1-1 and have just noticed the lack of a best midfielder thread, presumably because everyone is hyped about icons.
I've got my CAM spot filled in with Costa, and am thus only looking for the best players to use in a CM position, and LM/RM. Hit me with your suggestions in any format (e.g. best midfield three, best CAM, best CM, best pure CDM)
Personally I am looking for two CMs (relatively independent of chemistry) that don't break the bank but can still be considered elite (sub 400k)
