The midfield is the engine room of the team, and can make or break the way things work on the pitch. From creating chances to shielding the backline, midfielders have several key responsibilities that make them indispensable. 

In this article, we will be taking a look at the top 5 best midfield duos in the decade gone by.

Top 5 best midfield duos of the last decade 

5. Fabinho & Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) 

The Liverpool captain has been a vital piece of the puzzle for Jurgen Klopp and his men. Fabinho’s physical presence in midfield is also key to maintaining the team defensively and providing effective distribution going forward. Together, they have won the Champions League, Premier League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. 

4. Joshua Kimmich & Leon Goretzka (Bayern Munich) 

The duo of Kimmich and Goretzka perfectly complements each other. While Kimmich plays as an exceptional passer and is responsible for creating chances, Goretzka is the more physical of the two. His role as a box-to-box midfielder helps him join the attack and protect the backline as well. 

3. Kevin De Bruyne & David Silva (Manchester City) 

The two midfield icons played together as 8s and excelled under Pep Guardiola. They won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four League Cups together at Manchester City. 

2. Xavi & Andres Iniesta (Barcelona) 

The midfield duo of Xavi and Iniesta will go down as one of the greatest in the history of the sport. They started together from La Masia and went on to win everything there is to win playing for club and country. 

1. Toni Kroos & Luka Modric (Real Madrid) 

Kroos and Modric continue to dominate football in their 30s and are at the top of the list of the best midfield duos of the past decade. While Kroos is among the best passers of the ball out there, Modric can pass the ball, and carry it forward effortlessly. As a result, they are perfect teammates and have cemented legendary status for themselves alongside Casemiro.
