FUT 21: Footballers - key statistics FIFA 21 guide, tips

In this chapter of our guide to FIFA 21, you can find out what are the most important statistics of players playing at specific positions. After reading our tips, you will know what players you should look for your FIFA Ultimate Team.

In FUT 21, you can choose one of many formations and select players who will play at specific positions. In addition to the goalkeeper, your team can include attackers, wingers, midfielders, and defenders. Footballers playing at a specific position should have certain qualities and attributes. Also, a player's overall rating does not always reflect his skills well, so you shouldn't make important decisions based on the player's overall rating. Below we suggest which players to look for for your FUT 21 squad and what to follow when choosing them.

Striker

Depending on the formation, each team in FUT 21 must have at least one good attacker who will score goals. When choosing a striker, pay attention to those players who have excellent following attributes:

  1. Pace above 80;
  2. Finishing above 80;
  3. Shot Power above 80;
  4. Dribbling above 80 (if the Balance of the player is also at this level - perfect!);
  5. Weak Foot stars - preferably 4 or 5, so that you do not have to move the ball to the stronger leg before shooting;
  6. Skill Moves stars - if you like and can dribble, look for players with 4 or even 5 stars;
  7. More specialty in attack than in defense (preferably high/low).

In FIFA 21, you will find many slow strikers (Harry Kane, Luis Suárez). They are still playable, but you will have to design your actions differently and focus on good passes. These players usually have very good Finishing attribute.

Depending on the formation, your team may need wingers (LW/RW) or side midfielders (LM/RM) - FUT 21: Footballers - key statistics - FIFA Ultimate Team - FIFA 21 Guide
