The Best FIFA 19 Premier League Defensive Midfielders


Many of the FIFA 19 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.

Kanté is by far the most popular defensive midfielder.

There are a variety of attributes in a central defensive midfielder that you have to give attention: defending, so that the first defender of team works; strength, so that you win all brawls in a prone area of the field; heading, to win possession in aerial moves like goal kicks; pace, so that you cover the most terrain on the field as possible; stamina, so they can equally participate in offensive and defensive moves (especially useful for players with high/high work rates); passing and possession so that he can properly start attacks. In our opinion the two first are the most important.

Normally using a central defensive midfielder is associated with having a deficit of elements in your defence. So, it makes sense that when you search for a player to occupy this position you’d want players that can defend.

Kanté (who else?) is the one who defends better.

The area of the field occupied by the central defensive midfielders is the one where most ball disputes happen. Strong players will have a higher probability of winning the ball.

There’s a lot of muscle between the Premier League defensive midfielders. Wanyama and Eric Dier are good examples of that. On the other hand, there’s James McCarthy. Even though he’s a decent passer, he rarely wins a physical brawl due to being one of the weakest central defensive midfielder in the EPL.

In our opinion, Kanté is the right choice for this position. He is the CDM who gives more security to the back line but he is also a good offensive player. However, you will need to have a small fortune to buy him. Fabinho is the best alternative to him but, again, not everyone will have enough coins to buy him. In that case, we suggest you Fernandinho. Matic is also a great player but, because of his speed, we only reccomend you for formations with two CDMs.

There are also good options that are available at a cheap price who are still good quality-wise, like Ndidi or Gueye. However, if you only need a CDM who stays back supporting the defence, you should try Wanyama. Jordan Henderson is not in our top 10 not because he’s not good enough but because doesn’t have the right attributes to play in this position.

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.

Like it happens with the CDM position, there is a centre midfielder who is much better than the other ones. In this case, it’s Pogba who stands out.

Centre midfielders are responsible for discovering lines that break the opponents defence. Their passing quality has to be really good so they can assist forwards.

Even though Pogba and Jorginho have a great passing stat, Fábregas is the CM who does it better in the Premier League.

A Centre midfielder usually needs creativity. Good dribbling allows the team to move forward, creating potential disequilibrium’s.

Moussa Dembélé and Naby Keïta are the centre midfielders with best dribbling stats in the Premier League.

In our opinion (and probably for everyone!), Pogba is the right choice for this position. However, you will need a lot of coins to buy him. Dembélè is the best alternative to him. He is a very balanced player capable to support the attack but also good enough to help the defence.

There are also good options that are available at a cheap price who are still good quality-wise. Our third choice is Kovacic but, if you need someone better on the defence, Fred is also a good option. Jorginho is a very popular player in the community, but in our opinion Gundogan, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Seri would give more quality to your team.

The Best FIFA 19 Premier League Central Attacking Midfielders


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.

There are several good CAM’s in this league. It’s the case of the Ozil, David Silva, Eriksen and Kevin De Bruyne.

How we explained, the central attacking midfielders need to have good passing stats, so they can assist forwards.

Every year, De Bruyne and Eriksen have been improving their pass quality.

If a CAM is a good dribbler, he can make all the difference when the team is attacking.

David Silva is again the best dribbler of the Premier League centre midfield.

Kevin De Bruyne is an amazing player. He is the CAM with the best shooting, passing and physicality stats in the Premier League. For unlimited budget squads he is irreplaceable. If your budget is limited, you don’t have to get upset because Eriksen is also a very interesting player.

David Silva is not a fast player but everyone knows how good he is with the ball on his feet. To us, he is a better option than Mkhitaryan (5 star skills) and Alli.

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

Salah received a huge upgrade this year and he is now of the most popular Premier League players.

There are three fundamental attributes for a winger: pace, dribbling and passing.

Pace is probably the biggest weapon of these players. They use it to evade opponents and getting to the other side, many times via sprints on the side lines.

The Premier League is extremely well served in this chapter: five gold players have pace over 90. One of them is the fastet player in the game.

Just being fast doesn’t cut it to reach the opponents box, having good dribbling to surpass the opponents’ players that appear on the way.

There are a lot of players gifted in dribbling, being Mahrez, Salah and Bernardo Silva the best.

When reaching the opponents box the winger has to decide what to do. Normally, they choose to cross to the forwards. That is why it’s important for them to have good passing.

Mata, Bernardo Silva and James Ward-Prowse are clearly the best fitted passers between the remaining right wingers.

Salah is the player of the moment and it’s easy to understand why. He plays a lot. It’s not easy to choose the best alternative to him. Willian has a better work rate but Mahrez is better on the skills.

If you want even more speed, you can go with Sterling or Luca, and avoid Juan Mata. He has good stats but he shouldn’t be an option because of his speed. A player in this position must be faster.

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

There’s a proportional quality between the left winger and his dribbling. It’s natural to see Hazard as the most highlighted in this chapter.

The weakest point of the Premier League left Wingers is surprising – passing. Only Hazard offers good quality passing. Richarlison and Welbeck, for example, could’ve been an option to consider filling this slot in virtue of their other stats, but they are affected negatively for missing frequently passes to their more forward team mates.

Hazard is clearly the best left midfielder playing in this league. His passing and dribbling stats are the highest ones. Sané and Mané are the best alternatives to him.

There are also good options that are available at a lower price who are still good quality-wise, like Son and Alexis Sánchez.

  6. I have:
    Trippier Sanchez Rudiger Alonso
    Kovacic CL Herrera
    Mane Erikson Red Anderson
    Red Lacazette

    Which position should I upgrade? I have 150k coins now, should I keep saving money for Kante? Always get Gold 2 on Weekend League, but not easy to get Gold 1 or further.

    1. Nice team. I think you should replace Rudiger with Azpilizueta or Dijk. Herrera is not one of our first choices and should be replaced. I think you should focus on these players, before going to Kante.

  7. Hey, my team is

    GK- Ederson
    RB – Ricardo Periera
    CB- Virgil Van Dijk
    CB- Bailly
    LB – Mendy

    I have 120k now what should I do?

  8. Team 4-3-3
    Trippier- Alderwierald-Kompany-Mendy
    POTM Lucas- Lukaku- OTW Anderson

    Got 170k coins where’s best to upgrade?

  9. Currrently I play 4-3-3(4) which switches to 4-2-3-1 in Game.

    Dm: Courtois, Rb: Valencia (CL), Cv: Varane, Cv: Sergio Ramos, Lb: Marcos Alonso, Cm: Ander Herrera, Cm: Fred, Cam : Reus (Potm), Lv: Hazard (Potm), St: Gotze (Flashback), Rv: Lucas (Potm)

    In game I play with the same defensive backline and with fred af ldm and herrera af rdm. Gotze plays cam, hazard lam, lucas ram and Reus striker.

    I have around 250k for improvements and feel like my midfield can be better. Any suggestions?

    1. You already have POTM Reus, Flahsbak Gotze, Lucas POTM and Hazard POTM. I’m not seeing how you could improve it much more…
      You can improve your CDMs since they are not as good as the rest of your team (maybe you are using these ones because of chemistry). Kante, for example, would be awsome (links with Varane)

  10. Hi Rodrigo

    CAM: Mhkitaryan
    ST: Jesus

    What do you think? Do you have any suggestions? On the moment i have 100.000 coins.
    And whats your opinion about playing with lm/rm? I think about playing 4-2-3-1 with 3 cams instead of a lm/rm.

  17. Hello Rodrigo,

    i currently play in 433-2 with this players

    walker – van dijk – sanchez – mendy
    erikksen – fabinho – de bruyne
    potm lucas – aguero – martial if

    you have any suggestions besides kante and pogba?

    thx for any advice.

    1. You have an amazing team. There is no much more you can do without spending a lot of coins. You can look to Azpilicueta instead of Sanchez but it will not make a huge difference.

  18. Hello!
    I leave my team to give me some advice.
    Rui Patricio
    Pereira – Sokratis – Bailly – Mendy
    Seri – Dembele – M.Dembélé – André Gomes
    Lucas – Vardy – Bernard


  19. Hello. Can you please help me?

    Currently I am playing 4-3-2-1, which becomes an 4-1-2-1-2 (2) after minute one.

    My current team is the following:
    GK: Alisson
    RB: Walker
    CBs: Sokratis, Stones.
    LB: Mendy
    CMs: Jorginho, Ndidi, Mkhitaryan
    RF: Lucas
    ST: Lacazette
    LF: Son.

    When I switch in game, Ndidi plays as my CDM, Jorginho as my LCM and Mkhitaryan as my RCM. The problem I have is I don’t know who to play as my CAM. It’s either Lucas or Son.

    Could you please let me know what should I do or if I have to buy another player?

    Thank you!

  20. Hi
    this is my team and i want your opinion on if i need to make any changes to it:

    Gk: handanovic
    LB: alex sandro
    CB: chiellini
    CB: bonucci
    RB: Florenzi

    CM: icardi
    CAM: dybala
    CM: hamsik

    LW: insigne
    ST: immobile
    RW: jose callejon

    I have milinkovic and pjanic as subs but im debating if i should buy nainggolan and sell one of my cm’s. What do you think?

    1. Nice team. There are so many good CM/CAMs on the Serie A, that I usually suggest building a squad without wingers. In this case, it looks that you CMs with better defensive skills. Naingollan would be an obvious choice.

  21. GK: Lloris, Pickford (totw)
    LB: Mendy, Delph (CL card)
    RB: Trippier (Cl card), Aurier
    CB: Sokratis, Baily, Laporte, Stones
    CDM: Dembele, Gueye, NDidi, Henderson, Herrera
    CAM: Ozil, Lingard, Ramsey, Zaha ( converted)
    ST: Kane, Lacazette (Totw), King (Totw) Mane ( As LF)

    Playing in a 4-2-2-2 formation with focus on ball possession and defensive pressure since basically all of them (besides ozil) have high levels of stamina/work rate. Have 145 K of budget ate the moment, Any suggestion on which areas to upgrade? So far I am having very good results but I think I could improve CAM and CB, any thoughts?

  22. Boas! I m playing in 4 4 1 and i have around 130k
    Gk – ederson
    Lb – robertson
    Rb – aurier ucl
    Cb – alderweirel ucl
    Cb – vertohnen
    Cm – fabinho
    Cm – ozil
    Cam – silva
    Rw – lucas potm
    Lw – mane
    St- lacazette

    Subs – otamendi, gundongan, matic, naingollan, miranda, martial, vardy, fekir

    I’m not too happy with any of the cams except for fabinho (and naingollan but can t quite start him) so i often bring down silva and play lacazette at cam with vardy at front. The defense also feels a bit slow, should i get a different cb?

    Also, i see people mentioning having 2 teams, is this for some specific reason or just to play with other cards?


  23. Hey Rodrigo,

    I believe i have a great team but i am conceding too many goals. Any idea who i should replace ? or what changes i need to make.

    I am playing with 433 (4) as this suits my style the best. I am not great at skills and i depend on passing alot.

    GK- De Gea
    RB- Kyle Walker
    LB- Marcos Alonso
    RCM- Henrikh Miki
    LCM- Erikson
    CAM- Firmino
    RW- Salah / POTM Lucas
    LW- Leroy Sane / Alexis Sanchez
    ST- Aguero

  24. Thanks for that info again. Matic is in the CDM position and Fabregas and Jorginho is in the CM positions. I think that the midfield is the next thing to upgrade

  25. Hi,

    Thanks again for all the write ups. Full of good information. Looking at replacing some players in my team soon, here below is my team. 433(2)





    Thinking on replacing Jorginho at CM for David Silva or TOTW Gundogan next. What you think?

    1. Usually, I hate TOTW and special cards because they are not good value for money. However, David Silva doesn’t work for everyone. You can try him but be adviced that someone like Henrikh Mkhitaryan may work better. Also, Matic should play in the CMC position, leaving the other spot for someone more attacking. I think you can find someone better than Fabregas, but it’s up to you.

  26. Hello, Rodrigo
    Thanks for your sharing.
    I play 433(2) recently. My Squad is
    Martial Jesus Lucas
    Lingard Doucoure Ozil
    Rose Rudiger Stone Pereira
    Lingard fits well in my squad. But it seems that Ozil cannot make good contribution.
    Is Alli a good option for this CM position? I like playing high-pace.
    I used Mykhtaryan before. But he did not work well.

  27. Hello Rodrigo.
    I’ve been following your guides since fut 17 and they are perfect!
    My squad is
    Aurier, bailley, sokratis, robertson
    Rashford, fernandinho, matic, POTM lucas
    Mkhitaryan, jesus
    I play 4-2-3-1(2) with rashford in LM position. I’ve saved 55k by now and i dont know whether i should buy sanchez or son. I dont use crosses much because of jesus and mkhitaryan, so height is not a matter for me.

    1. Thank you. In our opinion, despite of his rating, Son is better than Alexis Sánchez. However, he is also very expensive. If you could wait a month, you would be able to buy him for a much better price.

  28. Boris Nizharadze

    Hi Rodrigo,

    I have problem with Salah, I can’t use it effectively, if feel like he doesn’t fits to my style.

    I have this team:
    De gea
    Robertson van Dijk Azpilicueta Pereira
    Kovacic Kante Eriksen
    Salah Aguero Hazard

    Even kante is assisting and scoring more than Salah 🙁

    Can you suggest anyone in max 400k-500k range ?

  29. Michael DiGiacomo

    Hi Rodrigo,

    I’m using the formation 4321 with the LF and RF. My players are:

    GK- Ederson
    RB- Ricardo Pereira
    LB- Mendy
    RCM- Kovacic
    CM- Fernandinho
    LCM- Seri
    RF- POTM Lucas
    LF- POTM Hazard
    ST- IF King

    I’ve used Gabriel Jesus and Zaha and none of those strikers are helping me score including IF King. I’m also looking to do something with my CBs because for some reason it’s not solid. People are blowing past them as if they’re not there. I have 169k coins. Please help lol

    1. POTM Hazard? What a card! Someone who had coins to complete that challenge, should also have a few coins to improve the rest of the team.
      Suggestions: van Dijk, Azpilicueta and save for a top striker. You have ‘only’ 169k but you can sell some of your players too.

  30. Olá Rodrigo!
    What you think about my team rn, what should I upgrade?

    Mendy, Bailly, Koscielny, Ricardo Pereira
    Jorginho, Dembelé, Oxlade
    Lucas, Lacazette, Shaqiri

    I’m low on coins cause I bought Dembelé right now.

  31. Pickford
    Trippier, Otamendi, Sokratis, Alonso
    B. Silva, Jorginho, Alli, Sanchez

    Its a decent team but am completely shot when it comes to pace. Should I replace Jorginho with a Fred? Priority right now is Keeper and RM (looking at Sterling or Mahrez) so I can have a quick outlet. I am leaning towards Sterling because I’m finding the two inverted strategy in Fifa 19 doesn’t quite work as the AI is better at defending deep and as a unit so the pitch isn’t getting spread enough. What do you think?

    I also have an Italian team
    Hysaj, Barzagli, De Vrij, Ghoulam
    Samu Castellijo, Pjanic, Hamsik, El Sharaawy

    I want Perisic and Immobile but am priced out of those changes for now, are there better alternatives for those too which are still an upgrade on what I have.

    I have about 30k coins now and none of these changes are emergent so can splash on a single upgrade.

    1. You have a balanced team. Yes, replacing Jorginho by Fred look a decent improvement. A good GK is easy to but because the prices are not as high as in other positions. It’s not easy to pick between Mahrez and Sterling. All I know is that the problems you are facing now about how to attack will be fixed with practice.

  32. David Fitzsimmons

    At the moment I’m playing with

    Trippier Kompany laporte Alonso


    (Potm) Lucas mane


    Firmino Aguero
    Got around 180k coins I’ve got my fut and rivals rewards on Thursday after i see what I get in these I want to upgrade either my keeper cam or cb what would you say is most important???
    Many thanks great info.

      1. David Fitzsimmons

        Yes that is my main area I’m looking at maybe vvd alderweild or vertonghan was also toying with Firmino in cam role and adding another pacy striker

  33. Hi need help trying to pick my left mid, I had son there but he wasn’t cutting it for me so I sold him and want to use the coins to get some one else. in my cm I have matuidi and rabiot with cuadrado on the right, I am thinking of either getting martial or sanè. I have 150k, if I got the cheaper option and get martial I would invest in replacing rabiot. Can you guys help me here??

  34. Who to get Kovacic or Jorginho? Stuck on who to get. LW I don’t have a lot to spend who to get for that position?

  35. One last question. What are your thoughts on potm lucas.
    Eventually I will have salah in first team
    Lucas in second. Would u suggest Willian to be better ? I have both atm

  36. I could get eriksen if I sold my second team but don’t know if that’s a good move

  37. Replace who for mkhi or eriksen. Maybe Kovacic and gundogan
    I have two teams
    Team one has dembele and Kovacic and team two has free and Gündoğan
    Maybe I didn’t give silva enough time to see how good he is
    Would u suggest a player like dembele then a cam in this formation? Or two cams

      1. Thanks. I currently have Fabinho and Fernandinho as the cdms. I’ll post team as don’t no if that changes things
        Gk lloris ederson
        Dr Valencia pereira
        Dl Mendy Robertson
        Dc bailly rudiger
        Dc Sanchez sokratis
        Cdm Fabinho Fernandinho
        Cm dembele Kovacic
        Cm silva Mkhitaryan
        Rw potm lucas Willian
        Lw son Sanchez
        St firmino jesus

          1. Thanks Rodrigo. Yeah I have them already. Ok thanks so much. I’ll save for eriksen
            Best overall would be
            Kante pogba De Bruyne
            Then Fabinho eriksen and who

  38. Hi I’m using 433-2
    I’ve currently got 4 out of top 5 cms. Can’t afford pogba
    Are these the best in your opinion for the cm role or are some cams decent. Tried silva there but felt he lacked the defensive prowess and don’t wanna waste money on cams if they aren’t worth it in this form

      1. Eriksen to replace Kovacic?
        I have in my first team as cm dembele n Kovacic and second team I have Fred and Gündogan. Don’t no which cam would be great there will work on getting eriksen next
        Thanks Rodrigo

  39. Hi Rodrigo, great guide.
    Do you think lanzini or seri is best as a cam in 4231 narrow formation?

  40. Gonçalo Horta

    Right now rocking:
    UCL Rashford/Laca/Lucas

    Got to be honest its weird to me that Herrera didnt even get in the lists in anyplace.
    He’s for the 2nd year one of the best allrounders in the midfield and has great stamina as well.
    He is, in my opinion, at least better than 2-3 names in that CM list.

    I figure it’s okay to give an opinion based on experience as well but alli this year isnt great. Especially with the pricetag on his name. Mkhitaryan is a way better choice and cheaper as well. For a CAM definitely should skip on Alli.

    CDMs I’m looking for an opinion on if i should try and upgrade on Ndidi or keep him as he’s been decent. Might leave it and upgrade on the defense or switch Lucas for another ST/CF/CAM and switch formation to a 4-1-2-1-2 with Laca an Rashford up front. Thoughts?

    1. Olá Gonçalo.
      It’s always good to receive feedback. Obviously, we all have different opinions since we all have different perspectives, playstyles, formations, team mates, etc. the important thing is to respect each other.
      It’s not easy to say what you should do because I don’t know the weak points you have identified. Ndidi is great destroying the opposite game but not so good when he has to attack.

      1. Gonçalo Horta

        Well, It’s been a few days and I’ve upgraded lucas to his POTM. Team is the same. Midfield issues there’s none really to be honest, just figured with 100k i was due some upgrades. Mainly on Ndidi since he is imo the weak link in there.

        My issue is mostly on the attack. I find it really hard to finish im most ocasions usually either having to resort to finesses outside the box with mkhitaryan or just crosses to rashford. Obvious choice should be lukaku as he’s a beast this year but pricetag is a bit steep as of right now. i don’t know if i should switch laca as he’s been good but not great for someone else.

        1. Olá. If you are feeling that your issue is on the attack, maybe you could try swap Ndidi for someone more attacking and with better passing stats, like Fabinho. However, keep in mind that the weak link isn’t affecting you. If your players already have individual chemistry 10, then you cannot improve it anymore and doesn’t matter the colour of the link.

  41. I have:
    Rui Particio
    Bellerin Sokratis Ake Robertson
    Jorginho Fabinho
    Lucas Mkhitaryan Anderson
    In 4-3-3(4)
    I have around 300,000 coins to spend. Should I go all out on one player or split it up?

      1. Yeah, i only spent £30 pound and packed Isco, IF Xhaka and Kroos, which was cool.

        Thanks Rodrigo, would you suggest keeping a premier league team or going to a cheaper league like La Liga until prices come down?

  42. Hi Rodrigo,

    Thanks for the guides, as always every year they are brilliant. My current team is this in 433-2 and budget about 30k plus:
    Coleman Sokratis Bailly Shaw
    Oxlade Doucouré
    Shaqiri Firmino Bernard

    1. I’m concerned with my CM and want to replace docoure. Should I go for dembele or should I split it with say Kovacic and upgrade other positions?
    2. Following that, would you agree that my LW and RB should be next priority?

    1. I would get Jorginho (playing brilliant for me) and Lucas Moura if i was you. you have 2 runners in midfield already and Jorginho’s passing on it is ridiculous (in-play not stats) and lucas Moura is dynamite on the wing.
