Mainly, not purely defensive role.
A double pivot system still has room for box-to-box running from the mids.

Biglia or Bakayoko would have the sitting role. Kessie would still be the engine of the team, still do up and down running on and off ball, and probably still get to waste tons of attacks(and still have a chance to improve in this area), but it will be reduced in favor of Paqueta.

The Albin Ekdals don't have his physique or athleticism or ability to move the ball forward.
