Having seen the best player in the league, ever, Tiote, get red carded... Who do you think is the best defensive midfielder in the league? They don't have to be purely defensive players - Arteta for example is a more attacking midfielder who has settled very well in a defensive role. 1. Yaya Toure 2. Fellaini 3. Lucas Leiva 4. Arteta 5. Javi Garcia/Parker/Diaby/Carrick - unsure Opinions?
