Deep lying playmakers are midfielders who play in a defensive position but are used to start the attack, similar to how Xabi Alonso was/is used at liverpool and Real Madrid. Their main attribute is spread the play and dictate the game. Another example is Pirlo.

A box to box midfielder is a midfielder that excels in both defensive and offensive tasks. They cover the whole length of the field hence the name box-to-box. Some example of box to box midfielders are Yaya Toure, Viera when he played at Arsenal.
