We don't play with two holding midfielders, though? Both Fred and McTominay play more as B2B midfielders than anything.the weird myth rather is that their protection from midfield is inadequate. It should be fairly obvious to anyone who has watched football for a long time that any team that needs to operate with 2 holding players vs tough opponents has a problem in center defence. Not in midfield
If we have two holding midfielders, Liverpool had three of them last season. Guess their defence must be extremely bad if they needed three players to protect them.
