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

In this chapter of our game guide to FIFA 21 you can find out what are the most important statistics of footballers who play at different positions. After reading our advice, you will know what type of players to look for in FIFA Ultimate Team.

In FUT 21 you can choose from a number of formations and select players who will play in specific positions in your club. Your team, apart from the goalkeeper, can include strikers, wingers, midfielders and defenders. By playing at a specific position, a footballer should have certain qualities and attributes. Also, player's overall rating does not always reflect his skills well, so you shouldn't make important decisions on the basis of checking the player's overall rating. Below, we suggest which players to look for in case of the FUT 21 gold squad and explain how to select them.

Striker

Depending on the formation, each team in FUT 21 must have at least one solid striker to score goals. When selecting a footballer as a striker, pay attention to those players who stand out in terms of the following attributes:

  1. Acceleration above 80 ;
  2. Finishing above 80;
  3. Shot power over 80;
  4. Dribbling above 80 (if the player's balance is also around this level - excellent!);
  5. Weak foot stars - preferably 4 or 5, so you don't have to shift the football to a stronger foot before performing a shot;
  6. Skill moves stars - if you like and can dribble, then look for players with good technical skills who have Skill moves at level 4 or 5;
  7. More speciality in attack than in defense (preferably high/low).

In FIFA 21 you will find a lot of slower strikers (such as Harry Kane, Luis Suárez) who are still very playable. However, in such a case you will have to change the tactics of every action and rely on more effective passes. The finishing of such footballers usually stand at a very high level.

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

  2. Dribbling and balance above 80;
  3. Finishing above 80;
  4. Shot power over 80;
  5. Weak foot stars - preferably 4 or 5, so you don't have to shift the football to a stronger foot before performing a shot;
