I can not get my midfield to be combatative and stop?

I can not get my midfield to be combatative and stop the ball watching, Technically they are a strong unit,just switch off too much ??

play a keep ball game but line up as if it were table football 4 vs 4 (midfield vs midfield) you have it so if one team makes a certain number of passes lets say 10 then they get a point one player from your midfield closes the ball down the other 3 should talk it through and naturally push up to support applying pressure on the ball and forcing the other team to play and give away possesion and momentum ...therefore taking the pressure off and having the ability to re-grouping and get on the ball

You must let your midfielders know that when the team is not in possession of the ball, they must Man Mark all the opposition's Midfielders to ease off the pressure on their own defenders, plus they must hold their ground against the opposition's midfielders. If the opposition's midfielders do not see much of the ball then the battle in the middle of the park is won by your team, which would workout to the advantange for your team (especially for the teams' forwards plus defenders).
