FIFA 21 PREMIER LEAGUE DEFENDERS

THE BEST FIFA 21 PREMIER LEAGUE 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.

We don’t have to explain why Van Dijk is our favourite, right? He is the one. Joe Gomez is clearly the best teammate to play with him. Strong and with good defending skills, he is also one of the fastest centre-backs on the planet – only two gold CBs are faster than him.

Davinson and Laporte are the best alternatives to the Liverpool duo. The City’s Centre Back defends better and is much better with the ball on his feet. However, we can’t resist to Davinson’s pace. After these two, our preferences go for Aké, Rüdiger and Bailly, for this order. They are very similar but the new City defender is better to start the construction of the attack.

The last three are not as good as the first ones, but they may be useful depending on your needs. It’s the case of Fernandinho, a centre back with skills that you won’t find in anyone else.

The best choice is pretty obvious. Kyle Walker, who has been featuring on our guides since FIFA 13, is still the fastest one despite his age. He is also the stronger and on the Top 5 for defence. What else do you need?

Were you expecting to see Trent Alexander-Arnold in the top of this list? No, you won’t see him there because he doesn’t even have a solid second place. He is the most complete right-back of this league but he lacks in pace and, as you know, later or sooner is all about pace. Thankfully, Nelson Semedo is a new addition. The extra speed he has makes the difference between him and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Portuguese army also counts with Ricardo Pereira and João Cancelo, decent alternatives to the first ones. We also have highlighted Héctor Bellerín but pay attention to his defensive work rate to not be surprised in-game. He is the weakest player physically but balanced enough in the rest of the stats.

THE BEST FIFA 21 PREMIER LEAGUE 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.

Andrew Robertson used to be the first option to the left side of the defence of every Premier League squad. However, with the addition of Alex Telles, he has now competition. In fact, the Brazilian defender is slightly better than Robertson. He scores more goals and is also slightly faster. If you can’t afford them, Reguilón is also a quality choice who deserves to be on this list of the best FIFA 21 Premier League Defenders.

In a lower level, you should also add Lucas Digne and Kieran Tierney to your notes. The first one is slow but more capable in the rest of the other skills. The other, despite his rating, is fast and strong (only Sead Kolašinac is stronger than him).

There is also a special mention to Konstantinos Tsimikas. He’s only 76 rated but he’s the fastest one. If all you want is pace, then you should try him.
