Introduction to the FIFA 18 Best Squad Guide


Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, this is because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.

When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 18. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best athletes to choose.

It’s also important that the player checks to see if the player he chooses fits the formations he likes to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders. According to these formations, the player must be cautious and look at the work rate. Try to relate them with the ones we advise in our Formations Guide.

This time we will not care to chemistry. The goal is to select the best players of each position, no matter how they link each other. This article aims to help those that want to form the FIFA 18 best squad possible.

Another important point and that must stay very clear is that whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:

✔️ Only Gold Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them.

✔️ Only Regular Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider In Forms (IF) or special cards. They’re extremely expensive and in most cases are not considered good value for money. They should only be used by players with generous budgets, that already have the best team possible and that want small upgrades.

✔️ Only Normal Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider players that have been reviewed (UP).

✔️ Only Original Attributes
In this guide, we didn’t consider changes made in a player’s performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.

✔️ Fluctuation of Prices
We added a link to the suggested squad where you can check anytime the updated prices.



Best FIFA 18 Goalkeepers


Goalkeepers are the players that are used least on the field. Because of this they are also first ignored when building a team. Most players start their purchases with a forward, later they strengthen the midfield, the defence and only later the goal. The truth is a good goalkeeper may be worth a lot of goals. They are a good investment because they are normally the most economically accessible players.


1 Manuel Neuer
2 David De Gea
3 Gianluigi Buffon
4 Thibaut Courtois
5 Samir Handanovič




Best FIFA 18 Centre Backs


A goalkeeper task is made easier if in front of him are quality central backs. Their function is to stop the opponent from getting dangerously close to your team’s goal.


1 Sérgio Ramos
2 Jérôme Boateng
3 Giorgio Chiellini
4 Thiago Silva
5 David Luiz



Best FIFA 18 Right Backs


Full backs have the role of troubling the job of wingers. In addition, good full backs also support their team mates on offensive manoeuvres.


1 Kyle Walker
2 Antonio Valencia
3 Alessandro Florenzi
4 Dani Alves
5 Nelson Semedo




Best FIFA 18 Left Backs


Left backs have exactly the same role of their team mates on the other flank. In other words, they try to make a winger’s job hard and participate in the team’s offensive manoeuvres.


1 Alex Sandro
2 David Alaba
3 Marcelo
4 Jordi Alba
5 Filipe Luís




Best FIFA 18 Defensive Midfielder


Many of the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team formations require some midfielders that have a natural aptitude to defend. Central defensive midfielders distinguish themselves for being especially aimed to help the more retreated line of their teams. According to their attributes and their work rates, they can also be useful for starting attacks. They are players that occupy a very strategic position in the field.


1 Arturo Vidal
2 N’Golo Kanté
3 Blaise Matuidi
4 Casemiro
5 Nemanja Matić




Best FIFA 18 Centre Midfielder


A lot of games are decided in the midfield and not close to the goals. The players that play in these zones are the ones that should create the game and define its rhythm.


1 Paul Pogba
2 Radja Nainggolan
3 Luka Modrić
4 Thiago
5 Claudio Marchisio



Best FIFA 18 Centre Attacking Midfielder


An attacking centre midfielder is responsible for creating chances to score. He should have a good dribbling, a decent passing, a high long shot stat and a great vision.


1 Paulo Dybala
2 Kevin De Bruyne
3 Christian Eriksen
4 James Rodríguez
5 Dele Alli



Best FIFA 18 Right Wingers

RM | RW | RF

The wingers are responsible for giving game width in the attack. They’re normally very explosive players.


1 Lionel Messi
2 Gareth Bale
3 Arjen Robben
4 Henrikh Mkhitaryan
5 Ousmane Dembélé



Best FIFA 18 Left Wingers

LM | LW | LF

The left wingers have exactly the same role as their team mates from the other side.

FIFA 18 Squad Suggestions


The team suggestions that follow should serve merely as orientation because it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. They depend on various factors we don’t know such as budget, formation, style of play and player preferences.

Along these years, many people asked us to publish a guide with the best players in the game. This information may be very useful when creating a new squad and want to use the best players. We joined them in a single squad without a good chemistry. We used the 41212 formation because it is the one we use in all our guides. We are not trying to show you the best squad. Our goal is to show you the best players, which is not exactly the same thing.

In the goal, Neuer and De Gea are our favourites. Sérgio Ramos, Boateng and Chiellini are the three best centre backs. If you plan to use a 3xx or 5xx formation, you need to use them. The weakest player on this team is Kyle Walker. In the opposite side, Alex Sandro, the only player from Serie A, is better than Alaba. A big part of the community loves Kanté but Vidal is slightly better than him. In front of him, Pogba is obviously one of the easiest choices. Messi and Neymar play on the wings, and Ronaldo moves to the ST position side by side with Luis Suárez.
