In FIFA 21, fullbacks are responsible for the transition between defense and offense on the sides of the field. Among the rarest and most valued positions in soccer, the defenders are also very disputed in EA’s game. Techidence has prepared a list of 10 of the best options for fullbacks on the left side, considering the main features of the position, such as speed, scoring power, and support for the attack.
Andrew Robertson – Liverpool
After a brilliant campaign with Liverpool last season, Robertson arrived in FIFA 21 as the highest-rated full-back in the game. Although not one of the fastest, the Scotsman combines several of the main qualities of the position, such as great passing, powerful shots, and very accurate crosses.
Alex Sandro – Juventus (Piedmont Calcio)
Despite few opportunities as a starter for the national team, Alex Sandro is a strong name in EA’s game, as he always figures among the best options for the side. Even though he has lost some of his speed compared to last season, the Juve player is still solid in defense and is also useful in the offensive plays.
Jordi Alba – Barcelona
At Barça from a very young age, Alba is one of the most identified players with the club in the current squad. Very fast and agile, the Spaniard plays a good role in the defensive game, in addition to constantly getting to the attack, either to give good crosses or even infiltrate the area to try passes or finishes.
Alex Telles – Manchester United
One of the great names in Porto’s recent history, Alex Telles moved to United at the beginning of the 20/21 season and is a great option for the side in the Premier League. Besides league and nationality that favor his use, the player has good and balanced numbers, making him a very interesting piece in FUT.
Grimaldo – Benfica
The Portuguese league is not one of the most popular in the Ultimate Team, but Grimaldo’s nationality makes him fit into several teams. Good speed, quality in dribbling and driving, and breath to pass and deliver are the main characteristics of the Benfica player.
Roussillon – Wolfsburg
Besides having good attributes, Wolfsburg’s Roussillon shines in FIFA 21 because he is ideal for linking Bundesliga squads with other French players. Even though the overall level is low, the full-back does well on the field, with a good balance between his defense and his onslaughts in the attack.
Alphonso Davies – Bayern Munich
- Potential: 89
At just 20 years of age, the Canadian of Bayern Munich is already an absolute starter and highlight of the Bavarian team. In career mode, Davies is a sure bet for the future, as he can develop a lot and even play in more attacking positions. He is also one of the fastest players in the game.
Theo Hernández – Milan
- Potential: 86
The Frenchman is another young and talented alternative for players in FIFA 21’s Career mode. With a lot of responsibility at AC Milan, Hernández is not one of the cheapest, but he will certainly make real fortunes in a few seasons, in addition to his technical impact on the field.
Ferland Mendy – Real Madrid
- Potential: 88
One of the most used players in the position in the Ultimate Team (due to the connection with players like Varane and Sergio Ramos), Mendy is also one of the best signings for the side in his career, due to his young age and great quality. He is the ideal player for those who are looking for speed athletes.
Nicolás Tagliafico – Ajax
- Potential: 84
At 28 years of age, Tagliafico is no kid, but he is among the interesting pieces that can be signed in the FIFA 21 Career. With a fair value and plenty of playing time, the Argentine is targeted by several teams in the mode, so he should be a priority target.
