Barclays Premier League Squad Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team


Check out the review we made about the players from Barclays Premier League, the main english football league.


Building a FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Barclays PL Squad


FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is mainly based on building a good squad. But that’s not easy. Firstly, we have to choose a tactic for us to get adapted with. Then, we choose the players we want to hire according to the attributes that we consider important and how they can fit into our tactic. And, at last, we have to make everything that is possible to get a high chemistry.

To make this last step easier, most players start defining what kind of squad they’re going to build. Some choose to get players with the same nationality (Brazilian squads are the most common), while others prefer to build one with players from the same league. There are also more experienced players that can build hybrid squads without prejudicing the chemistry too much.

However, we all feel some disorientation when we start building our squad. This article intends to help those who think about or intend to build a FIFA 13 Ultimate Team squad based in Barclays Premier League players.

Obviously this article is merely guiding. It’s about an extremely vast theme in which player combinations are almost infinite. Besides that, there are lots of factors that influence the players’ choices, such as each one’s playing style, tactic, budget, preferred clubs or even the time spent playing. There’s also an uncertainty component: a good player for you may not be good for the other players. If there was a certain best squad, everyone would struggle to have it. Part of the FIFA 13 Ultimate Team joke is this: each one has his own club and players.


Barclays Premier League and FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


The main football competition of the United Kingdom is considered the second greatest league of the world and entitles itself as the most spectacular league. Started in 1992, the Premier League is disputed by 20 clubs, of which Manchester United has won 12 times.

Since that it is in the United Kingdom where FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is most played, it’s natural that this is the most represented league on FUT 13 squads. Also because of that, the practiced prices are extremely high. If you’re thinking of building a Barclays Premier League squad, it’d be good that you had a fat wallet.

In relation to FIFA 12 Ultimate Team, FUT 13 lost some good players that used to play on Barclays PL. Hargreaves, Kranjcar, Kuyt, Maximiliano Rodríguez and Saha are good examples for that, but the biggest loss was actually Didier Drogba.

Although, the Barclays Premier League got some massive signings in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team, too: Hazard, Carzorla, Kagawa, Borini, Podolski, Marin, Giroud, Vertonghen, Oscar, De Bruyne, Vlaar, Sigurdsson, Mirallas, Sahin, Dembele.

As you can see, there are lots of quality choices. However, having a higher overall doesn’t mean that the player is better. It is necessary to analyse their attributes.

In this article we will analyse only the regular players, since the IF ones are extremely expensive and should be used only for an esthetic matter in most cases when the player has a lot of coins left.


To make the analysis easier, let’s consider six groups of players:

  • Goalkeeper (GK);
  • Central Back (CB);
  • Lateral Backs (RB, RWB, LB e LWB);
  • Central Midfielders (CDM, CM e CAM);
  • Medium Wingers (RM, RW, RF, LM, LW e LF);
  • and Attackers (CF e ST).

Let’s get going!


Barclays Premier League’s Goalkeepers (GK)

Many players start their signings with an attaker. Then improve the midfield, the defense and, lastly, the goal. The truth is that having a good goalkeeper will make a difference several times for winning a match. And usually the investiment is not that significant.

The most wanted goalkeepers are the french Hugo Lloris, the new-pertussis Joe Hart, the charismatic Peter Cech and the spanish José Reina. They are the ones that have the best rating and also because of that are the most expensive ones.


Hugo Lloris 86 France Tottenham Hotspur
Joe Hart 84 England Manchester City
Petr Cech 84 Czech Republic Chelsea
José Reina 83 Spain Liverpool
Júlio César 82 Brazil Queens Park Rangers
Michel Vorm 81 Netherlands Swansea City
Tim Howard 81 United States Everton
De Gea 80 Spain Manchester United
Brad Friedel 80 United States Tottenham Hotspur
Wojciech Szczesny 80 Poland Arsenal
Costel Pantilimon 74 Romania Manchester City
David Stockdale 74 England Fulham
Doni 74 Brazil Liverpool
Thomas Sørensen 74 Denmark Stoke City
Carlo Cudicini 74 Italy Tottenham Hotspur
Kelvin Davis 74 England Southampton
Brad Jones 64 Australia Liverpool
Benjamin Siegrist 64 Switzerland Aston Villa
Carlo Nash 63 England Stoke City
Declan Rudd 63 England Norwich City
Paulo Gazzaniga 62 Argentina Southampton


Although, the best overall doesn’t necessarily mean the best choice. There are two fundamental attributes for a good goalkeeper: reflexes and diving.

The first one measures the keeper’s agility when performing a defense. In this particularity, Tottenham’s goalkeeper is the best among the others. Highlights also for De Gea for being one of those that have the best reflexes.


Hugo Lloris 91 France Tottenham Hotspur
Joe Hart 87 England Manchester City
De Gea 87 Spain Manchester United
Shay Given 86 Republic of Ireland Aston Villa
Gomes 86 Brazil Tottenham Hotspur
Petr Cech 85 Czech Republic Chelsea
José Reina 84 Spain Liverpool
Júlio César 84 Brazil Queens Park Rangers
Michel Vorm 84 Netherlands Swansea City
Tim Howard 84 United States Everton
Thomas Sørensen 64 Denmark Stoke City
Kelvin Davis 61 England Southampton
Péter Gulácsi 60 Hungary Liverpool
Alex McCarthy 59 England Reading
Marcus Bettinelli 59 England Fulham
Brad Jones 63 Australia Liverpool
Mateusz Taudul 62 Poland Everton
Paulo Gazzaniga 61 Argentina Southampton
Damian Martinez 59 Argentina Arsenal
Declan Rudd 54 England Norwich City


The diving measures the capacity of a goalkeeper to perform a defense in the air. Also in this important aspect, Lloris stands on the concurrence. Joe Hart, the less beaten goalkeeper on Barclays Premiere League 2011-2012, is a valid choice for who wants to save coins.

Jussi Jääskeläinen 77 Finland West Ham United
Ross Turnbull 77 England Chelsea
Kelvin Davis 76 England Southampton
David Stockdale 76 England Fulham


There’s one more characteristic in a goalkeeper that will be able to make a difference: his height. The taller he is, the bigger will be the chances to maintain the goal inviolable. This is Lloris’s weakness. He is one of the shortest goalkeepers on the Barclays Premiere League, 15 centimeters away from Costel Pantilimon, the tallest keeper on Barclays PL and the second tallest in the game.

Jamal Blackman 195 England Chelsea
Benjamin Siegrist 194 Switzerland Aston Villa
Eirik Holmen Johansen 194 Norway Manchester City
Luke Daniels 193 England West Bromwich Albion


Hugo Lloris is unequivocally the best goalkeeper on Barclays Premier League. Out of the six main attributes for a goalkeeper, he is the best on five (reflexes, diving, handling, speed and positioning). If you like to pass the ball back to the goalkeeper, there are many players that develop this function well, like Reina and De Gea.

Obviously, Lloris isn’t available for all wallets. Joe Hart is also an excellent goalkeeper and is worth the half. So is Peter Cech and he is worth one quarter. And if you want even a cheaper alternative, choose Reina. Defending penalties is his specialty.

Premier League’s Centre Backs (CB)


A goalkeeper’s job becomes easier if quality centre backs are playing right ahead. Their role in the match is to stop the opponents from getting near the goal.

The best defender of the game is in the Barclays Premier League. He may not be the defender with the attributes you appreciate the most, but Vidic reaches a fantastic overall of 89. The Belgians Kompany and Vermaelen, the norse Agger and the veterans Rio Ferdinand and John Terry are other quality defenders from the English League.


Nemanja Vidic 89 Serbia Manchester United
Vincent Kompany 85 Belgium Manchester City
John Terry 84 England Chelsea
Daniel Agger 83 Denmark Liverpool
Rio Ferdinand 83 England Manchester United
Thomas Vermaelen 82 Belgium Arsenal
Joleon Lescott 81 England Manchester City
Martin Škrtel 81 Slovakia Liverpool
Jan Vertonghen 81 Belgium Tottenham Hotspur
Kolo Touré 81 Ivory Coast Manchester City
Michael Turner 74 England Norwich City
Ryan Nelsen 74 New Zealand Queens Park Rangers
James Tomkins 74 England West Ham United
Jos Hooiveld 74 Netherlands Southampton
Ciaran Clark 74 Republic of Ireland Aston Villa
Danny Seaborne 63 England Southampton


For a centre back, two attributes are of particular importance: defending and heading.

A player with a good defending will take the ball from the opponent and prevent him to reach the box more easily. This is Vidic and Kompany’s case, the two best players to perform this function. A cheaper alternative to a good defense is Fulham’s Brede Hangeland.


Nemanja Vidic 87 Serbia Manchester United
Vincent Kompany 86 Belgium Manchester City
Brede Hangeland 85 Norway Fulham
John Terry 84 England Chelsea
Rio Ferdinand 84 England Manchester United
Per Mertesacker 84 Germany Arsenal
Thomas Vermaelen 83 Belgium Arsenal
Daniel Agger 82 Denmark Liverpool
Joleon Lescott 82 England Manchester City
Martin Škrtel 81 Slovakia Liverpool
Carlos Cuéllar 77 Spain Sunderland
Michael Turner 76 England Norwich City
Ryan Nelsen 76 New Zealand Queens Park Rangers
Sebastián Coates 76 Uruguay Liverpool
Aaron Hughes 75 Northern Ireland Fulham


Having a good heading is very important for a centre back because it allows him to win balls in the air while they’re thrown in his box. But that’s not all. Also on attacking free kicks, such as the corner, it is normal to see centre backs going into the opponent’s box to try their lucks.

In this chapter there’s a player that crushes the competitors: Vidic. He is, with a large advantage, the player who has the best heading in the whole game. In case you can’t buy one, Lescott and Vermarlen are also very good. In the opposite way there are Hangeland and Cuéllar. Although they have excellent defendings, they have poor headings (73 and 70 respectively), so they must be players you have to avoid buying for your Barclays Premier League squad.


Nemanja Vidic 92 Serbia Manchester United
Thomas Vermaelen 85 Belgium Arsenal
Joleon Lescott 85 England Manchester City
John Terry 84 England Chelsea
Michael Dawson 84 England Tottenham Hotspur
Martin Škrtel 83 Slovakia Liverpool
Younès Kaboul 83 France Tottenham Hotspur
Ashley Williams 83 Wales Swansea City
Jan Vertonghen 82 Belgium Tottenham Hotspur
Gary Cahill 82 England Chelsea
Michael Turner 80 England Norwich City
Ryan Nelsen 80 New Zealand Queens Park Rangers
Adrian Mariappa 80 Jamaica Reading
Anton Ferdinand 80 England Queens Park Rangers
Titus Bramble 78 England Sunderland


One of the commonest characteristics on centre backs that dissatisfy us players is their slowness. No one likes to feel impotent by seeing extremely fast players easily passing through our defense. That’s why the defenders’ speed is also an important factor.

Most Barclays Premier League’s good centre backs are slow. Vidic, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand and Lescott don’t exceed 63 on the speed stat. Mertesacker is the half of it (!). Kompany and Vermaelen can be good choices if speed is important to you.


David Luiz 78 Brazil Chelsea
Maynor Figueroa 78 Honduras Wigan Athletic
Younès Kaboul 77 France Tottenham Hotspur
Stéphane M’Bia 76 Cameroon Queens Park Rangers
Johan Djourou 75 Switzerland Arsenal
Vincent Kompany 74 Belgium Manchester City
John Heitinga 74 Netherlands Everton
Chris Smalling 74 England Manchester United
Laurent Koscielny 74 French Arsenal
Phil Jones 73 England Manchester United
Adrian Mariappa 77 Jamaica Reading
Sébastien Bassong 76 Cameroon Norwich City
Steven Caulker 74 England Tottenham Hotspur
Anton Ferdinand 71 England Queens Park Rangers
Titus Bramble 69 England Sunderland


Vidic is probably the best defender in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team. This should be enough to put him in your squad. But he’s got two problems. The first one is his prohibitive price for many players. In those cases, it is necessary to find other alternatives. The second problem is that Vidic is a very slow defender. Although, many players like to put a slower centre back that is more secure alongside another that compensates on speed. In these cases, and if money is not a problem, Kompany can be his defense partner.

For limited budgets there are other quality solutions. A double of Michael Dawson and Vermaelen guarantees a solid defense by having high attributes of defending and heading at a low price.

Premier League’s Side Defenders (RB, RWB, LB, LWB)


The side defenders have the function of making the opponents’ wingers’ jobs harder. But that’s not all. Complementarily, the good side defenders also support their team’s wingers on offensive plays.

On Barclays Premier League, Maicon found the concurrence of Sagna and Ivanovic on the right side of the defense. On the opposite side, Ashley Cole and Evra are the top rated ones.


Maicon 84 Brazil Manchester City
Bacary Sagna 83 France Arsenal
Branislav Ivanovic 82 Serbia Chelsea
Micah Richards 80 England Manchester City
Glen Johnson 79 England Liverpool
Pablo Zabaleta 79 Argentina Manchester City

Danny Simpson 76 England Newcastle United
Andy Wilkinson 74 England Stoke City
Phil Neville 74 England Everton
Tony Hibbert 74 England Everton
Nedum Onuoha 73 England Queens Park Rangers
Àngel Rangel 73 Spain Swansea City


Ashley Cole 84 England Chelsea
Patrice Evra 83 France Manchester United
Gaël Clichy 80 France Manchester City
Leighton Baines 80 England Everton
José Enrique 79 Spain Liverpool
Aleksandar Kolarov 78 Serbia Manchester City
Benoit Assou-Ekotto 78 Cameroon Tottenham Hotspur
John Arne Riise 76 Norway Fulham
Kieran Gibbs 76 England Arsenal
Kieran Richardson 75 England Fulham
Garrido 74 Spain Norwich City
Marc Wilson 74 Republic of Ireland Stoke City
Ryan Taylor 74 England Newcastle United
Stephen Warnock 73 England Aston Villa
Neil Taylor 72 Wales Swansea City


Since they are elements of the defense, in these players the defending is a central attribute. On the right side, Ivanovic is the best. On the left side, Evra is the one that has this attribute more developed. Still, any of them stays behind the best centre backs of the Barclays Premier League in this FIFA 13 Ultimate Team.


Branislav Ivanovic 84 Serbia Chelsea
Maicon 82 Brazil Manchester City
Micah Richards 82 England Manchester City
Bacary Sagna 81 France Arsenal
Pablo Zabaleta 81 Argentina Manchester City
Phil Neville 78 England Everton
Kyle Walker 77 England Tottenham Hotspur

Phil Neville 78 England Everton
Nedum Onuoha 76 England Queens Park Rangers

Zdenek Grygera 75 Czech Republic Fulham


Patrice Evra 82 France Manchester United
Ashley Cole 81 England Chelsea
José Enrique 80 Spain Liverpool
Aleksandar Kolarov 79 Serbia Manchester City
Benoit Assou-Ekotto 78 Cameroon Tottenham Hotspur
Gaël Clichy 77 France Manchester City
Leighton Baines 77 England Everton
John Arne Riise 75 Norway Fulham
Kieran Gibbs 75 England Arsenal

Danny Higginbotham 77 England Stoke City
Marc Wilson 75 Republic of Ireland Stoke City
Stephen Warnock 75 England Aston Villa
Garrido 73 Spain Norwich City
George McCartney 72 Northern Ireland West Ham United


But a side defender shouldn’t only defend. If you like them to go to the opposite box and perform perfect crosses, then it’s interesting for you to know who does it well.

If Maicon has good crosses on the right side, on the left side Leighton Baines can cross even better. Glen Johnson, Ashley Cole and Assou-Ekotto also have a very good performance in this chapter.

Davide Santon 77 Italy Newcastle United
Ryan Taylor 82 England Newcastle United
Daniel Fox 80 Scotland Southampton
Nicky Shorey 80 England Reading
Ian Harte 80 Republic of Ireland Reading
Garrido 78 Spain Norwich City


A side defender is much more dynamic than a centre back because he fulfills a double mission of defense-attack and because the game tends to be faster on the wings. That’s why it’s important for them to be fast players.

There are any fast side defenders in the Barclays Premier League of FIFA 13 Ultimte Team. Kyle Walker exceeds 90 of speed, while Clichy gets close but on the left side.


Kyle Walker 91 England Tottenham Hotspur
Glen Johnson 87 England Liverpool
Maicon 85 Brazil Manchester City
Rafael 84 Brazil Manchester United
Micah Richards 82 England Manchester City
Azpilicueta 80 Spain Chelsea
José Bosingwa 80 Portugal Queens Park Rangers
Bacary Sagna 79 France Arsenal
Danny Simpson 78 England Newcastle United
Martin Kelly 78 England Liverpool
Nathaniel Clyne 83 England Southampton
Steven Whittaker 81 Scotland Norwich City
Kyle Naughton 78 England Tottenham Hotspur
Eric Lichaj 78 United States Aston Villa
Shaun Cummings 78 England Reading


Gaël Clichy 89 France Manchester City

Alexander Büttner 86 Netherlands Manchester United
Armand Traoré 85 Senegal Queens Park Rangers
Danny Rose 82 England Sunderland
Bryan Oviedo 82 Costa Rica Everton
Neil Taylor 78 Wales Swansea City


For the right side of your FIFA 13 Ultimate Team English League squad, Maicon is the strongest player. He is the best crosser, the second best defender and the third with the best speed. Although, he’s also very expensive. It is given more value to the offensive capacity than the defensive, so Glen Johnson is the right guy.

On the left side, Ashley Cole can be considered as a well balanced side defender. He’s fast, defends well and crosses with precision. There are others who also develop this function well, but no one as good as the french.

Premier League’s Midfielders (CDM, CM e CAM)


The players that play on the middle of the field are responsible for helping in the defensive aspects, but mainly for assisting the advanced players of their team. They are the ones who should study the match and define its rhythm.

Some of the best midfielders in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team play on Barclays Premier League, such as David Silva, Yaya Touré, Juan Mata, Nasri and even the english veterans Gerrard and Lampard.


David Silva 88 Spain Manchester City

Stéphane Sessègnon 82 Benin Sunderland
David Vaughan 74 Wales Sunderland
Glenn Whelan 74 Republic of Ireland Stoke City
Jordan Henderson 74 England Liverpool
Alejandro Faurlín 74 Argentina Queens Park Rangers
Mark Noble 74 England West Ham United


The midfielders are responsible for finding out the lines that break the opponent’s defense. Their passing quality must be very good so they can assist the attackers.

Although Scholes is the the one who has the best passing ability, there are many other good solutions, such as David Silva, Gerrard and Arteta.


Paul Scholes 88 England Manchester United
David Silva 86 Spain Manchester City
Steven Gerrard 86 England Liverpool
Mikel Arteta 86 Spain Arsenal
Samir Nasri 84 France Manchester City
Santi Cazorla 84 Spain Arsenal
Frank Lampard 84 England Chelsea

Granero 84 Spain Queens Park Rangers
Barry Bannan 82 Scotland Aston Villa
David Fox 78 England Norwich City
David Vaughan 77 Wales Sunderland
Glenn Whelan 77 Republic of Ireland Stoke City
Jordan Henderson 77 England Liverpool


The passing is the most important attribute in a midfielder but it’s not the only one. These players must have a good vision and, if possible, a good shooting. David Silva is the king on the first one and Lampard on the second.

A good dribbling allows you to take the team ahead, possibly creating unbalances. Also in this characteristic David Silva is the top rated one. Nasri and Kagawa don’t stay behind.


David Silva 88 Spain Manchester City
Samir Nasri 88 France Manchester City
Shinji Kagawa 88 Japan Manchester United
Juan Mata 87 Spain Chelsea
Santi Cazorla 86 Spain Arsenal
Bryan Ruíz 86 Costa Rica Fulham
Moussa Dembélé 86 Belgium Tottenham Hotspur

Stéphane Sessègnon 85 Benin Sunderland
Adel Taarabt 85 Morocco Queens Park Rangers
Yago Falqué 81 Spain Tottenham Hotspur
Samba Diakité 79 Mali Queens Park Rangers
Shaun Maloney 78 Scotland Wigan Athletic
Barry Bannan 77 Scotland Aston Villa
Fabian Delph 77 England Aston Villa


David Silva is the best midfielder of the Barclays Premier League for being the one who highlights the most on the attributes that are really important for his position. There are some cheaper options, but the choice between Mata, Nasri, Touré and others depends of your play style.

If you often shoot outside the box, Lampard and Gerrard may be the best choices. If you like to advance with the ball on your feet, Nasri and Kagawa can be the right ones. No quality lacking.

Premier League’s Wingers (RM, RW, RF, LM, LW e LF)


The wingers are responsible for widening the offensive moves of their team. They’re normally the most explosive players.

Some high quality wingers play in the english championship. Valencia, Ben Arfa and Walcott on the right side, Hazard, Bale, Nani and Ashley Young on the left side are good examples.


Antonio Valencia 83 Ecuador Manchester United

James McClean 74 Republic of Ireland Sunderland
Brett Holman 74 Australia Aston Villa
Jerome Thomas 73 England West Bromwich Albion
Magaye Gueye 73 Senegal Everton
Yassine El Ghanassy 73 Belgium West Bromwich Albion


Getting away through the side line until the opponent’s goal is something commom on a winger. In order to do that with success, they need to be fast players. That’s why the speed is one of the most important attributes for the players on this position.

The fastest player in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is Theo Walcott, the gunners’s right winger. Stopping him is something complicated. But not just him. Eleven other wingers from the PL, including two silver ones, have the speed stat above 90.


Theo Walcott 96 England Arsenal
Nathan Dyer 92 England Swansea City
Aaron Lennon 92 England Tottenham Hotspur
Daniel Sturridge 90 England Chelsea
Antonio Valencia 90 Ecuador Manchester United

Andros Townsend 87 England Tottenham Hotspur
Kerim Frei 86 Turkey Fulham
Yassine El Ghanassy 85 Belgium West Bromwich Albion


But in order to get close from the opponent’s goal, the speed may be enough. The wingers will face the opponents and will have to use dribbling to surpass them.

Barclays Premier League’s left wingers combine their speed with a great dribbling. Hazard, Nani, Gervinho and Arshavin are better than the best right wingers, Adam Johnson and Ben Arfa.

When arriving in the opponent’s box, the wingers have to decide what to do. Most times, they choose to assist the attackers. That’s why it’s important for them to be good on passing.

For the right wingers this is their weakness. Except for Valencia, the players with the best passing are those that have a lower overall.

On the left side, Hazard is the best choice. Still, Bale and Nani are players with a passing capacity very well developed.

It wouldn’t be about the right wingers that Barclays Premier League could be most proud of. Antonio Valencia is a good player and Walcott is extremely fast, but that’s quite all they have. There are actually very fast wingers but they are relatively weak on dribbling and passing. The affordable prices reflect this lack of quality.

On the left side the situation is different. Hazard is one of the five best players of the world in this position and on the Barclays Premier League no one competes with him. Nani and Bale are also top players that cost significantly less. Although, if their prices keep being prohibitive for your wallet, Etherington is extremely cheap and very well balanced on the most important attributes (speed, dribbling and passing).

Premier League’s Attackers (CF e ST)


The attackers are the ones that play on the last third of the field alongside with the opponents’ defenders. The only requirement for them is to be able to score goals.

Wayne Rooney is one of the best attackers in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team. By the way, the Barclays Premier League is full of great players for this position. Out of the 10 best attackers, seven play in the clubs from Manchester.


Wayne Rooney 89 England Manchester United
Robin van Persie 88 Netherlands Manchester United
Sergio Agüero 87 Argentina Manchester City
Luis Suárez 86 Uruguay Liverpool
Carlos Tévez 86 Argentina Manchester City
Fernando Torres 85 Spain Chelsea
Mario Balotelli 84 Italy Manchester City
Lukas Podolski 83 Germany Arsenal
Edin Džeko 83 Bosnia Herzegovina Manchester City
Javier Hernández 82 Mexico Manchester United
Rickie Lambert 74 England Southampton
Hugo Rodallega 74 Colombia Fulham
Romelu Lukaku 74 Belgium West Bromwich Albion
Gabriel Agbonlahor 74 England Aston Villa
Grant Holt 74 England Norwich City


If attackers are supposed to score goals, then shooting is the most important attribute for them.

Wayne Rooney and Podolski are almost perfect strikers but the best one is Robin van Persie. The dutch is the second best shooter in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team, being only beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo.


Robin van Persie 89 Netherlands Manchester United
Wayne Rooney 88 England Manchester United
Lukas Podolski 87 Germany Arsenal
Carlos Tévez 85 Argentina Manchester City
Sergio Agüero 84 Argentina Manchester City
Luis Suárez 83 Uruguay Liverpool
Jermain Defoe 83 England Tottenham Hotspur
Fernando Torres 82 Spain Chelsea
Mario Balotelli 82 Italy Manchester City
Edin Džeko 82 Bosnia Herzegovina Manchester City
Rickie Lambert 75 England Southampton
Hugo Rodallega 74 Colombia Fulham
Romelu Lukaku 73 Belgium West Bromwich Albion
John Guidetti 73 Sweden Manchester City
Gabriel Agbonlahor 72 England Aston Villa


The attackers don’t use only their feet to score goals. Knowing how to head the ball can make a lot of difference. If you’re a player who often crosses the ball to the box, then this attribute is indispensable.

Andy Carroll and Kenwyne Jones are taller than the most wanted players, such as Rooney, Aguero, Tévez and Van Persie. Highlights also for the silver player Grant Holt that is also taller.


Andy Carroll 86 England West Ham United
Kenwyne Jones 86 Trinidad & Tobago Stoke City
Emmanuel Adebayor 83 Togo Tottenham Hotspur
Wayne Rooney 82 England Manchester United
Marouane Chamakh 82 Morocco Arsenal
Steven Fletcher 82 Scotland Sunderland
Demba Ba 81 Senegal Newcastle United
Olivier Giroud 81 France Arsenal
Bobby Zamora 81 England Queens Park Rangers
Djibril Cissé 80 France Queens Park Rangers
Grant Holt 84 England Norwich City
Rob Hulse 82 England Queens Park Rangers
Steve Morison 79 Wales Norwich City
Noel Hunt 79 Republic of Ireland Reading
Jonathan Walters 78 Republic of Ireland Stoke City


Shooting and heading are the most important attributes for an attacker. Although, according to each one’s tactic and game style, there are those who prefer attackers that take advantage on their speed to surpass the opponent’s defense.

On Barclays Premier League, Hernández is the fastest gold attacker and Aguero is the solution for who wants top players. The silver player Agbonlahor’s 93 speed stat helps explaining the astronomical value of this player.


Javier Hernández 90 Mexico Manchester United
Shane Long 88 Republic of Ireland West Bromwich Albion
Sergio Agüero 88 Argentina Manchester City
Kevin Mirallas 88 Belgium Everton
Darren Bent 87 England Aston Villa
Arouna Koné 87 Ivory Coast Wigan Athletic
Lukas Podolski 87 Germany Arsenal
Djibril Cissé 85 France Queens Park Rangers
Danny Welbeck 85 England Manchester United
Mario Balotelli 84 Italy Manchester City
Gabriel Agbonlahor 93 England Aston Villa
Emmanuel Mayuka 90 Zambia Southampton
Joshua King 90 Norway Manchester United
Cameron Jerome 88 England Stoke City
Fraizer Campbell 87 England Sunderland


For who is able to afford him, Rooney is the indispensable attacker. Although he’s not very fast, he is complete on all the other attributes. For the second attacker, the choice should vary between Van Persie and Aguero. If your game style privileges the speed, then the argentine is better. Dzeko and Bent are the cheapest players that will be able to develop the same functions although with a little less quality.

Barclays PL Gold Squads Suggestions for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


As the players were already presented, it’s time for us to try putting together the best ones in the same squad. Since this task depends a lot on the tactic you use, we are going to introduce one squad suggestion for each of the most popular tactics. We’ll show one in 4-1-2-1-2 considering an unlimited budget and another in 4-4-2 considering a maximum budget of 25k coins. In the construction of these squads we chose carefully the players that better fit on the positions according to the attributes we consider more important, which we already explained in this article.


Barclays Premier League Squad for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team with an Unlimited Budget:

  • GK: Hugo Lloris
  • CB: Nemanja Vidic
  • CB: Vicent Kompany
  • RB: Maicon
  • LB: Ashley Cole
  • CDM: Yaya Touré
  • CAM: David Silva
  • RM: Antonio Valencia
  • LM: Eden Hazard
  • ST: Wayne Rooney
  • ST: Sergio Aguero

No doubt this is a great squad. If there were any doubts, the fact that it is valued as around one million coins helps to ensure that.

On the goal there is the undoubtedly best goalkeeper from the Barclays PL. Right ahead it was chosen to put a fast defender and a slow one. One covers the counter-attack moves and can try winning the ball by anticipation while the other is an authentic wall, being on the ground or in the air. The side defenders are players that defend well but attack even better. They’re fast and know how to cross to the box. Touré is the midfielder that best defends so that his selection to the defensive middle position remains natural. The fantastic David Silva plays in front of him. He has the best ball control in the whole English League, knows how to dribble and is able to find out all the spaces in order to isolate his attacking teammates. Antonio Valencia is the chosen one to occupy the right side of the attack because of his speed, dribbling capacity, passing and crossing. Since he’s the weakest element of this squad, and also the cheapest, an alternative would be trying to adapt Juan Mata to this position. Since the players have the same tactic as the squad’s, the chemistry will remain on its 100. On the opposite side, Eden Hazard is undoubtedly because he’s almost always the best on the attributes that really matter. On the attacking front, Wayne Rooney is a natural choice and to make him company there is Aguero. The argentine beats Van Persie on speed because, although they’re almost the same on shooting and heading, the english champion is much faster, which compensates one of Rooney’s weaknesses.


Barclays Premier League Squad for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team with a 25k Coins Budget:

  • GK: Júlio César 3k (or else Wojciech Szczesny 0.5k)
  • CB: Michael Dawson 1k (or else Martin Skretl 1.6k)
  • CB: Jan Vertonghen 3k (or else Phil Jagielka 1.6k)
  • RB: Glen Johnson 6k (or else Rafael 5k)
  • LB: Benoit Assou-Ekotto 1k (or else Leighton Baines 4k)
  • CM: Ryan Giggs 1.5k (or else Nuri Sahin 3.3k)
  • CM: Tomas Rosicky 0.5k (or else Bryan Ruíz 1k)
  • RM: Jermaine Pennant 0.5k (or else Adam Johnson 6k)
  • LM: Matthew Etherington 0.5k (or else Steven Pienaar 0.5k)
  • ST: Edin Dzeko 4k (or else Darren Bent 6k)
  • ST: Djibril Cissé 2k (or else Andy Caroll 1.3k)

Building a 21k coins squad, in this case, doesn’t mean forming a weak squad. The important thing is to select the players with the characteristics you’re looking for.

Júlio César can be better, for example, than Reina. The spanish is four times more expensive. For his price, Dawson is an authentic pearl on the defending line. He defends well and heads even better. His weakness is the speed. That’s why Vertonghen has joined to be his defending teammate. Glen Johnson is even faster. The investment is high but we’re talking about the fastest right back from the Barclays Premier League. On the opposite side, Assou-Ekotto is a player with good qualities except for his shooting and heading, the less important attributes on a side defender. On the mid field we focused on the experience. The fact that speed is paid by gold price enables us to buy Giggs and Rosicky for a lower price. This double has excellent dribbling and passing qualities. Pennant and Etherington are very cheap and have good speed, dribbling and passing quality. On the attacking front, both are excellent attackers. Dzeko is slower but shoots better and Cissé is faster and heads better.

Hi i got a team with K De Gea LB Andre Santos CB Mertesacker CB Koscielny RB Johnson LM Jarvis CM Mata CM Nasri RM Ben Arfa ST Bent ST Ba. I play in formation 4-4-2 and it doesnt work for me do u got something to help me?

Apr 3, 2013 3:09 pm

Try to get some coins to improve your back line: Vermaelen, Kaboul, Ramires (you need one CM with good defensive attributes) and Enrique, for example.

Eleven Stars
Apr 8, 2013 9:25 pm

What do you think of my team(4-3-3)?

Starting 11
De Gea

Robin Van Persie


I havent tried out RVP yet. Is Aguero worth his price? I am also planning on getting Hazard, David Silva and Nasri. What do you think of them?

Apr 9, 2013 9:39 am

You are in the rigt way, planning to buy Aguero, Hazard, David Silva and Nasri.
You have some players on your bench or in the reserves that are better than the main 11. For us, Cole is better than Clichy, RBP and Tévez are better than Torres…
Good team anyway. It will be much better with your new signings.

hey guys.. have 41212 epl squad :
st – ageuro, persie
cam – rooney
hazard, valenica, toure
cole.. terry.. agger.. sagna

please suggest changes.. speically for cam — i want someone better
dnt worry about wallet 😛

Dec 23, 2012 1:46 pm

Hi. It’s good to be rich. :)
You already have a fantastic squad. If you don’t like your CAM, you can try to put RVP as CAM and Rooney as ST. Other option is to buy David Silva to this position.
In our opinion, you should improve your CB’s and buy a better GK (Lloris ?). Kompany is faster ans a good CB. If you think that you don’t need a faster CB, then you will love Vidic. He is wonderful but slow.

Apr 15, 2013 7:23 pm

Hey guys,
i was wondering where sturridge is; hes got 90 pace guys, but hes not listed in “fastest attackeres”, just sayin`…

Apr 15, 2013 9:06 pm

This guide was published before the launch of UP cards. Sturridge wasn’t an attacker on that time. That’s why he is not in the list. You don’t find Remy either.

Apr 25, 2013 9:50 am

how about my team
joe hart
2 CB aggar and ferdinand
LB ashely cole
RB sagna
3cm fellaini -wilsher -mikel arteta
CF suarez
2ST robin van persie _carlos tevez

Apr 25, 2013 11:16 pm

It’s a nice team.
If you got some more coins try to buy Touré and a faster CB.

May 5, 2013 12:47 pm

hello i have that team
4-3-1-2 joe hart
2 CB aggar and ferdinand
LB ashely cole RB sagna
3cm fellaini -wilsher -mikel arteta
CF suarez
2ST robin van persie _carlos tevez

and you told me that It’s a nice team. If you got some more coins try to buy Touré and a faster CB.

can i but juan mata instead of toure ?? and who can be a faster CB ??

regards 😛

May 5, 2013 8:00 pm

Kaboul is a good fast CB that you can try.
Touré is one of our favourites BPL players. Mata is not so good and don’t defends as Touré. But you can try him and see how you play with him.

May 18, 2013 3:22 pm

hello in my 4-3-1-2 team i got mata and yaya toure and nasri then it was so narrow for me in the midfielders so i changed my team to 3-5-2 i got
GK hart
3 cb i have (david luiz bec he is fast ) and kaboul bec his it fast and the middle cb i have aggar or Ferdinand and i want to know aggar or ferdinand
in the middle i got CDM yaya toure and i dont know the another CDM who i put please tell me a good CDM
RM AND LM i will get nani and valencia (nani bec hazard and bale is expensive for me )
CAM i will get david silva and 2 ST i have RVP and tevez and i need to change tevez with a faster Striker with good shooting not aguaro or Rooney bec they are expensive for me ) if there is no one better than tevez please tell me 😀 that it 😛

thanks for reading , iam sorry if it is too long but it will realy help me your comment thank you very much 😀 BEST SITE EVER !!

May 18, 2013 8:26 pm

1) For us Agger is better. Rio is a good defender but he is too slow. You have a formation with 3 defenders which means that you need fast CB’s. You have 2. You need one more.
2) Ramires play well as CDM. Tioté is also an option but not so good.
3) Hernandez and Remy are faster than Tévez but, in our opinion, the City player is better than these two striker. In fact, we think that only Rooney, Aguero and maybe RVP are better than him.

Nov 13, 2012 3:59 am

Thanks, good guide!

My mate has 110 k and asked me to suggest him what players to buy (Barclays premier league).

Nov 16, 2012 11:58 am

Hi. He can try to buy the players of the 25k budget and upgrade it with some better players, like Tévez, Ramires (good to 4-1-2-1-2), Ashley Cole and Cazorla.

Nov 20, 2012 10:33 pm

How did you get green lines between every player when they don´t play for the same club + different nationalities???

I also have a BPL team but the lines are orange

My team

Friedel-clichy-kaboul-liuz-johnson-Y.touré-nani-ben arfa-oscar-v.persie-mirallas..

Nov 20, 2012 11:00 pm

Ok, Melkan. You caught us. :) The picture that you see is a montage. Next time we’ll be more careful. Most of the lines should be orange.

Nov 28, 2012 1:52 am

Fixed! Thanks again.

Nov 20, 2012 11:30 pm

Can you make a tutorial with defending and atacking ? i have a team 4 3 3 hart , kompany , walker , kaboul , clichy , nasri , silva , toure , walcott , chamberlain , aguero … please help !

Nov 21, 2012 8:57 am

Hi. We will but not right now. Soon. Anyway, great team!

Nov 25, 2012 12:41 am

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.
I just wondered if i bought Walcott as my formation does not use wingers (4-1-2-1-2) which would be the best place to put him and change his position with a position card?
I am worried about his wrong foot and don’t really understand it all yet, I am new to the game.

Brilliant guide by the way has helped me loads :)

Nov 25, 2012 9:25 am

Hi. Watch this picture that we made:
As you can see, the best that you can do is to put him as CAM without cards. You will loose 4 chemistry points.

Nov 27, 2012 8:58 pm

I have the same team but rooney on the right side and van persie on the left side.. plus i have juan mata in-form at 87 on rm instead of valencia.. teamrating 87!

Nov 28, 2012 12:46 am

Hi! Thanks for your message. You have a fantastic team. Do you like it?

Dec 1, 2012 6:09 am

Is sczczesny or shay given a better keeper in FIFA? Cause I have both and I wondering which one should be in my starting line up.

Dec 1, 2012 10:31 am

Hi. If you have both then there is no better decision than yours. Try them. The best for us may not be for you. They are very similar but we prefer Given but Sczczesny is taller…

Matthew Mack
Dec 1, 2012 11:32 am

Ok… How much does the height of the keeper affect its overall effectiveness? Btw thanks for the quick reply!

Dec 1, 2012 9:00 pm

Hi. In our opinion height is the third factor that affect overall effectiveness. Reflexes and Diving are the two main factors.

Frederik PG
Dec 1, 2012 8:34 pm

Aguero + Rooney was too expensive, so I was thinking of Aguero + Van Persie, do you think those 2 will work good together? Thanks!

My team: 4-1-2-1-2
ST: Aguero & Rooney
CAM & CDM: Cazorla & Ramires
RM & LM: Valencia & Young
RB & LB: Glen Johnson & Enrique
CB’S: David Luiz & Kaboul
GK: Céch

Do you think it is a good team? Please tell me improvements, that would be very much appreciated!

Dec 1, 2012 9:30 pm

Hi Frederik. Thanks for your contact. We are sure that they will play well together. We have both in our squad and they play well together. For your budget you have a nice team. I bet that Ramires is a very important player in that team. As soon as you get some more coins, there are some good buys: Ashley Cole, Touré and David Silva

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 3:04 pm

Thanks for the response and the suggestions, so i was thinking about replacing Ramires with Toure, but I still have 1 question: Why David Villa? He doesn’t play in BPL so he won’t get a very good chemistry :O

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 3:15 pm

And what do you guys think of Koné (ST) from Ivory Coast?

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 3:46 pm

And if possible: Balotelli and Torres?

Dec 4, 2012 6:17 pm

Koné is fast but the other attributes are not so good as other players that you can buy. He is a cheap option. Cissé is a better option but Koné connects better with Touré. About Balotelli, he is a great player. We don’t like Torres very much because he is not so strong physically.

Dec 4, 2012 6:11 pm

Toure is superb! Sorry about David Villa. We meant to say Davis Silva!

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 7:25 pm

Thanks for the quick and amazing good answers, I really appreciate it.
1 last question:
Van persie doesn’t seem to have the pace that I feel is needed nowadays in FUT, so I was thinking of replacing him with Balotelli, what do you think of that idea? Thanks in advance :-)!

Dec 4, 2012 8:31 pm

Hi again. First of all it is important to say that there are no better players. We can prefer Ibra and you Messi. That’s the beauty of FUT. It depends of your formation, your type of play, etc… We agree with you about Van Persie. He is not so fast as we like on a striker. Since he has a good pass, we put him as CM. Van Persie has the second best shooting of FUT13 (Ronaldo first) but if pace is more important to you, chose Balotelli. You will need to test him to have sure if he is what you really expect.

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 7:27 pm

And with Davis you mean David right :D?

Dec 4, 2012 8:25 pm

:) Yep… DAVID Silva. This time is correct! :)

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 9:10 pm

Thanks for all the answers, you are awesome man :-)!

Frederik PG
Dec 4, 2012 9:46 pm

I hope not to get on your nerves or anything, cause I feel really stupid to ask another question (sorry) :/ but I hope you can forgive me:

Should I get Yaya Toure or David Silva first for 4-1-2-1-2? Since CAM is the Key position in that formation according to your formation guide.

Goodnight and I’m once again sorry and I will see you tommorow (hopefully lol)

Dec 4, 2012 11:56 pm

Hi. We are here to help. And your question is a good question. It’s up to you, but in your case we get David Silva first. Ramires should be OK to CDM until you get some more coins do Touré.

Frederik PG
Dec 5, 2012 11:09 am

Okay, and what do you think of Mata vs Silva in that CAM position 4-1-2-1-2? I heard from a lot of people that Mata is superior to Silva, but I’m not sure which one to get.

Dec 6, 2012 8:02 am

In our opinion Silva is much better. We have both but Mata is only to the bench.

Frederik PG
Dec 5, 2012 8:27 pm

Or even Nasri.

Dec 6, 2012 8:03 am

We never played with Nasri…

Frederik PG
Dec 6, 2012 10:18 am

Okay what are you opinion on which to use of these 3 CB’s?

Hi my team is great but With 75k improvements are proving tough advice would help Cech, a cole, terry, ferdinand,ivanovic. Valencia,yaya toure,david silva,bale. Ballotelli. Suarez

Dec 6, 2012 10:58 pm

Hi. With 75k we would invest in a faster CB. You have already a wonderful team but both your CB’s are not fast. Komapny for example would be a great addition.

Dec 7, 2012 7:51 pm

Hey! I spent all my money on creating a team after trading them up from getting the game. Who should I swap out do you think?

Sagna, Terry, Vermaelen, Evra
Valencia, Kagawa, Parker, Nani
Rooney, Suarez

cheers 😀

Dec 7, 2012 11:39 pm

Hi. No one. You have a nice team. You can try to study Touré or David Silva in the midfield…

Dec 8, 2012 6:40 am

Hi I have trouble, i don’t know what the next player in my squad shall be.

My squad: 4–4–2

B.Ivanovic – Y.Kaboul – D.Luiz – A.Cole

A.Valencia – S.Gerrard – Y-Toure – A.Young

– C.Tevez – P.Cissè

any ideas?

Dec 8, 2012 6:29 pm

How much do you have to spend ?

Dec 9, 2012 1:12 pm

Henkel you should try
ST Aguero – ST Persie
LM Bale – CM S.Gerrard – CM Y-Toure – RM A.Valencia
A.Cole – CB Koscielny IF – CB Kompany – RB Maicon
GK . Hart

A.Valencia – S.Gerrard – Y-Toure – A.Young

Dec 9, 2012 11:55 pm

Good suggestion.

Dec 9, 2012 9:10 am

Hey there! I have a question: do you think its worth changing a.young for bale or nani? My team so far
a.young–yaya toure—valencia
julio cesar

thinking to buy aguero and change mata! He is terrible haha!

Dec 9, 2012 11:48 pm

Hi. Yes, we think. Bale or Nani will be na added value to your squad. Aguero is superb. try to replace Mata with David Silva when you get some more coins.

Dec 9, 2012 1:17 pm

ST. Aguero
LW. Hazard RW. Valencia
CM. S.Nasri CM. Y.Toure CM. D.Silva

About 150 K gold for new player(s) … Which subs i should buy ?

Dec 10, 2012 12:05 am

Hi. This is already a great team. You can try to buy Rooney or RVP and put them on RW or even at CM. You will not lose many chemistry points if you buy training position cards.

Dec 10, 2012 5:20 am

Hi. I run a 451 formation with st aguero, cams nasri Rooney, wings hazard Valencia, cm toure, defence clichy vermaelen kompany maicon. With Mata as a sub.. I have 300k to spend on upgrade players.. Is there anyone I should consider to improve my team?? Also should I play Rooney as the striker or keep him as a cam??

Dec 10, 2012 9:04 am

Hi. The best thing to do is to play with Rooney as a ST and as a CAM. It’s up to you to decide the best position. We agree with Rooney as a CAM. With 300k we would buy David Silva and a goalkeeper. :)

Dec 10, 2012 12:18 pm

I have a bpl squad

Gk petr Cech

I can earn coins quite easily so was just wondering what improvements I could have on 4 3 3 formation?

Dec 11, 2012 12:09 pm

Hi. Great squad you have. If you earn coins easily you can make a list of good buys: Kompany, Touré and Van Persie. These are the 3 players that we would buy first if we were the owners of that club.

Jan 21, 2013 3:17 pm

best hybrid to make with 150k trying to include neuer and hazard in a 433 formation. i like all sorts of play. what do u recommend?

Jan 21, 2013 11:23 pm

We will publish a chemistry guide very soon. In that article you can learn how to build hybrid teams.
You can also take a look to MY FUT 13, where we have a hybrid with hazard. Replace the more expensive players by some more cheaper.

What do you think of my team? (Standard 4-4-2)

IF Evra – IF Hangeland – Vidic – Micah Richards
Hazard – IF Cleverley/YaYa – Kagawa – Valencia
Rooney – RvP

Got Hernandez, IF Welbeck, R. Ferdinand, Walcott, De Gea, Rafael and Wilshere that I can remember on the bench.

Dec 12, 2012 9:09 pm

We think that you have a nice team but you can get better than Kagawa. Maybe David Silva. You can also do what Jackorus suggest: bring Rooney or RVP to CM and put Aguero as ST.

Dec 12, 2012 10:31 am

I use Rooney as CAM then aguero and RVP up top, works perfect

Dec 13, 2012 12:35 am

My Team:
Baines koscinely kompany johnson

I have no money at all but need help to plan the next transfers.?.
Bale , Nani or Lavezzi?
Or shall. I have fokus on another posistion?
And just changed to this formation and i play very crap but im gonna stick with this formation, how do you play in this formation? Short passes , long passes, trouhg balls? I know a mix are thes best but whatS the best gameplan? Keep the ball? Counterattack? Use the wings? Use D.Silva ( he is never free)
Please help!

Hi. You have a nice cheap team.
Between these 3 players, we would choose Bale. With some more coins we buy a new LB (Cole for example) and maybe a new ST (Tévez).
About the formation try to find here the pros and the cons.

Dec 13, 2012 3:38 am

Hey Guys Wondering If Y’all Could Help Me Out With My 4-4-2 Squad
Gk-De Gea
Def.- Lb: Gaines Cb:After Cb:Ferdinand RB: Ibramovic
Mid- LM: Mueller/Tabaart Cm:Gerrard Cm:Yaya Youre Rm:Valencia
For- (I Change These Out All The Time) Remi, Dzeko, Forlan, And Defoe… Thanks:)

Dec 13, 2012 3:40 am


Dec 13, 2012 5:56 pm

It depends on the position you’re feeling weaker, your style of play and your wallet. We suggest to buy a faster CB and a stronger ST. The best thing to do is to buy some potential players and try it.

Dec 13, 2012 4:57 am

Great analysis, almost scary as I thought just like you when I built mine, but i think that you forgot to mention one important thing which is the height of the defenders which, in my opinion, more important then their heading, since they will reach the ball first in corners or crosses. Anyway my 4-1-2-1-2 team:
Maicon. Kompany. Kaboul. A.cole
Nasri. Hazard
Aguero. Rooney

Bench (Worth Mentioning) : balotelli,Marcelo,hulk,di maria..
Something is missing and I can’t figure it out, Rooney gets outstrenght very often which really irritates me and and both of them never made a header from crosses or corners(always kompany, yaya or kaboul). Balo saves my ass all the time as a supersub.. kaboul, makes horrible mistakes but his height has saved my ass many times As he reaches the ball first..

Do you have any advice on how to improve this squad? Changing formation? Faster forwards? 200k for vidic? (is he really worth the money?)

Dec 13, 2012 6:49 pm

Hi. Great comment and great team. :)
You can see our comments about these players in MY FUT13.
Rooney never gets outstrenght with us but we never play more than 3 matches in row with him. But we already notice what you said about heading. In FUT 12 he scores a lot of goals from corners and crosses. In FUT 13 he can’t do it, we don’t know why. Vidic is to expensive. We have him in our squad but we send him to the bench because he is too slow. A fantastic player but too slow. We recommend Thiago Silva (that link only with Maicon) or Sergio Ramos. But you need to see if it affects the chemistry too much. About your team is almost perfect. We prefer Lloris as GK and a better CB to Kaboul place. Regards

Dec 18, 2012 3:05 am

Thank you so much i will consider this and come back with a review =)

Best wishes /h

Hey I was curious as to why you had Valencia on your best team. I definitely prefer Lennon as he has two better pace and two better dribbling. These are surely stats that you want in a winger?

Dec 14, 2012 12:26 am

True. Lennon has better pace and better dribbling than valencia but only for 2 points. Valencia is much better passing and crossing, which is also very important in a winger. That’s why we choosed him. Regards.

Dec 14, 2012 2:58 am

Hi guys,
I’m about to blow your minds because I do not have an all premiere league squad, but I seek your thoughts on the bpl striking core of my hybrid. It is as follows:
352 formation
GK: Casillas
CBs: Pepe Pique Mascherano
CDMs: Xavi and Xabi Alonso
LM; Lavezzi
RM: Di Maria
CAM: Tevez
STs: Van Persie and Aguero

I need tevez as the CAM to have 9 chem with di maria and lavezzi, so my question is with my strikers. Van Persie is AMAZING, i have 18 goals with 10 games online with him, but Aguero is not performing up to par. (I think I have 8 goals in 18 games with him) Should I sell aguero for Rooney and play Rooney with Van Persie up top? There will be no speed, but I’m thinking lavezzi and di maria will make up for the lack of speed from the Man U squad. Your thoughts

Dec 14, 2012 3:29 pm

We love hybrid squads! You have a nice one because you have the best of two sides: the defence of BBVA and the attack of the BPL. About the strikers it isn’t easy to answer you. You will keep chemistry high with Rooney or Aguero. We love both. It isn’t easy to choose. Aguero is faster and Rooney stronger. You can always sell Aguero, buy Rooney and if you don’t like him, exchange again. One more thing: to make a perfect team you should gather some more coins and buy Sergio Ramos to Mascherano place.

Dec 15, 2012 5:43 am

Ah thanks guys I appreciate it. I bought Rooney today and love him! I have no speed up top, but Lavezzi and Di Maria somewhat make up for it. Rooneys High defensive work rate is the only annoying thing. And my plan was to get Serigio Ramos next, but I would have to replace Pique or Pepe because I need the Argentinian Chemistry of Macherano. Thanks for your reply though and I love the guide!

Dec 14, 2012 2:39 pm

Hi… I was wondering cuz you are speaking of players who fit together – if i have 100 chemistry, does it then matter if one player is on his right posistion? Aslong as i keep 100 chem can i then use a ST on the CF spot? Great guide btw! TY!

Dec 14, 2012 3:42 pm

Thanks! There is team chemistry and player chemistry. The important is the first one. If you have chemistry 100 even with players in wrong positions, your team will be fine. But not 100%. If you have players chemistry below 9, these players will not play the best they can do. But again: the important is the team chemistry.

Dec 15, 2012 1:22 am

Thanks a lot :) That clearified it for me :)

Dec 15, 2012 2:37 pm

Good to know.

Dec 14, 2012 3:47 pm

Hi, tried 4-1-2-1-2 for a while but cant play with it,

can u please set up a team for me?

have 200K and thinking of going back to 4-4-2 :)

Dec 14, 2012 3:49 pm

wanna have focus on good defens on the squad on 200 k 4-4-2

Dec 14, 2012 9:23 pm

hey i have a 4-4-1-1 this is my squad

de gea

sagna koscielny skrtel ivanovic

walcott cabaye parker young

i picked taraabt for center forward because he has a five star dribbling and week foot any advice on my team ??? thanks

Dec 14, 2012 10:54 pm

Nice cheap team. If you play well with them that’s all that’s matter. We never played with most of these players, so our opinion is not a good opinion.

Dec 15, 2012 9:11 pm

Hello, just found this guide and I really think it’s good, just wanted a few tips on my team:
GK: vorm
RB/LB: sagna/evra
CB’s: terry/vermalen
CDM’s: ramires/fellaini
CAM’s: Gerard/cazorla
CF: podolski
ST: Hernandez
(I play 4-2-3-1)

I’m not very good at fifa so this is the best team I’ve ever had and I’m quite happy with it. I have no coins at the moment so do you also have any tips on how I can get some coins fast?


Dec 16, 2012 12:10 am

Hi. You already have a nice team. Fast RB/LB, fantastic CDM’s and a good attack. To improve this team you need to have more coins. With your currently budget, you already have one of the best teams you can have. About the tips, the best thing to do is to buy lower and sell higher. We will publish some coins guides soon. Regards.

Dec 16, 2012 2:54 am

Hey guys!
Just wondering, dont u think its A waste playing hazard as LM, wouldnt he go better as a LW?

Dec 16, 2012 9:15 pm

Hi Oskar. We agree with you. Hazard is much better as LW. It’s true. We play with him as LM and we are a little disappointed. But, as LM, with still think that he is the better REGULAR player that BPL has. Bale is the second one.

Luke Doria
Dec 17, 2012 4:25 pm

Hi, nice team and excellent guide. I would love a bit of help with my 4-3-1-2 PL team.

Im currently playing with

Clichy-David Luiz-Kompany-M. Richards
Y. Toure
Mata Nasri
Inform Chicharito
Inform Defoe Rooney

Id like to know how i could strengthen my defense and another EXELLENT CF instead of IF Hernandez, cause he aint keeping up. He has 90 pace but still he get beaten by any defender, also he is so weak and his shoots are not that good.

Aalso would like to add that IF Defoe is the best striker a team could have. H es amazingly fast he has goot shoot power and accuracy, only weakness is he is horrible with his weak foot but aside that he is the best striker i had.

Dec 19, 2012 12:39 pm

Thanks! If you don’t like Hernandez, you can sell him and for that money try another good player. You can play with RVP as CF. He has a great shot (the second best of FUT 13), excellent pace and he is fast enough. The best thing to do is to try him and if you remain unhappy try another one (Rooney as cF and Tévez as ST ?). About the defenders, the truth is, in our opinion, BPL defenders are not the best ones. You can not do much. You already have two of the best BPL defenders. To improve it you need to hire defenders of other leagues which means weaken your chemistry.

Dec 18, 2012 6:38 am

Hi guys,

This is my team, 4-4-1-1:

Aguero (ST);
Rooney (CF);
Nani (LM), Cazorla (CM), Toure (CM), Valencia (RM);
Cole (LB), Kompany (CB), Vidic (CB), Sagna (RB);
Hart (GK)

De Gea (GK), Vermaelen (CB), Koscielny (CB), Clichy (LB), Rafael (RB), Ramires (CM), Wilshere (CM), Walcott (RM), Silva (CF), Aguero (ST).

Can I have your opinion on my team and how can I improve it? I know stuff like replacing Sagna for Maicon, Hart > Lloris, Nani > Hazard, but maybe you can tell me other stuff. Some people have players from other leagues in their team and still have 100 chemistry, how can I import (for example) Sergio Ramos best and still have 100 chemistry?

Thanks in advance.

Dec 18, 2012 8:08 am

Oh sorry, one of the Aguero’s ment to be Robin van Persie.

Dec 19, 2012 2:22 pm

Hi. You already have a great BPL team and you already know which improves you can do (Ramires-Touré is another one). In MY FUT 13 you can see our hybrid team, with BPL players and BBVA players (Sergio Ramos included).

Dec 18, 2012 6:01 pm

Hi guys.
Here is my squad
De Gea
jose henrique ferdinand lescott micah richards
Wilshere javi garcia
Lampard kagawa

Where do you think I should improve first. I was thinking about buying podolsky but my CDM aren’t so good as I though they would be.
Thanks in advance and for the excellent guide.

Dec 19, 2012 3:05 pm

Hi. It depends of many things like how you play, your formation and your budget. We think that replacing Javi Garcia by Toure will be a great improvement to your squad (or Ramires – more cheap). To us it is the improvement number one to your squad. One more thing: if portuguese is your language, you can access to FIFA U Team portuguese version here.

Dec 19, 2012 10:07 am

Which players do you recommend for a 3-5-2
I want to upgrade my squad, I have 200k and this.

David Luiz Kompany Vermaelen
Valencia Tiote Ramires Hazzard
Hernandez Podolski

Dec 19, 2012 3:14 pm

200k is a lot of money for improvements! It depends of how you play and your preferences but in our opinion: replace Tiote by Touré and Sessegnon by David Silva. These are the two most important. Then, Hernandez by RVP maybe.

Dec 19, 2012 7:55 pm

I tend to play a lot more creative, giving myself time to build the play, however if needed I can try the pacey atack or counteratack cause I have people to do it, as I don´t have a natural good ST header, who do you recommend? Balotelli is good enough?

thanks for the recommendations they are certainly appreciated and those you players you recommended were somehow the ones I was thinking of

Dec 19, 2012 10:06 pm

Hi again. If you are creative, you will love David Silva. On of the players with best ball control on FUT 13.
With your budget you can try Balotelli or Tévez. It’s up to you to decide who is better.

Dec 20, 2012 11:18 pm

Alryt m8 my team mainly consists of premier league players but team still feels weak at times I play a 433 and have gk iker cassies defence a.cole kompany pepe walker midfield arteta fellaini dembele forwards bale Rooney Walcott any tips to make team better have bout 100k to spend

Dec 21, 2012 12:15 pm

Hi. Give a try to Toure and David Silva. We think that they will fit perfectly in your team.

Ryan Williams
Dec 21, 2012 8:05 am

I play with 3-4-3

I have Vidic, Kompany and David Luiz, who do you recommend to change for David Luiz?

Dec 21, 2012 12:12 pm

No one. Vidic is fantastic but he is slow. So, you need 2 fast CB. David Luiz and Kompany are good choices. Better only if you buy someone outside BPL but it depends of your chemistry.

Dec 22, 2012 12:18 pm

My team is in 3-4-2-1 My gk is Cech, centre backs are agger IF hangeland and vermalen, RM is valencia my cms are Suarez and cazorla and my LM is a. young. My lf is chamberlain my rf is Ben afar and my striker is RVP. Watch should I do to improve my team???

Dec 22, 2012 12:25 pm

Hi. You have a nice team for your budget. You will need more coins to improve this team.
What should you improve first? Depends of your play style, your budget, your preferences, etc… In our opinion defence is the weakest position. Try to start there (maybe David Luiz ?).

Dec 22, 2012 4:57 pm

Thanks who do you prefer Van Persie or Balotelli since my team is quite attack minded

Dec 22, 2012 10:26 pm

RVP. But you can prefer Balotelli. RVP is better for us.

Dec 23, 2012 12:49 am

Hello, I had a question where I have been thinking of for long, and I need some advice.

My team is as following, with formation 4-3-3:

GK: De Gea

LB & RB: A. Cole – Walker

CB’s: Kaboul – M’Bia

CM’s: Touré – Scholes – Wilshere

LW & RW: Hazard – Walcott

ST: Van Persie

As I had a lack of money due to formation change and player change, I have some low-quality players now. I have 20K, where should I start with? I thought the CM’s but I don’t know if Mata (left for Cole and Hazard), Silva and Touré would be good.

Could you give me an advice on what to change first? Thanks in advance!

Dec 23, 2012 1:39 pm

Hi. It depends of your play style, your budget, your preferences, etc… In our opinion you are thinking well. Mata-Toure-Silva is a fantastic midfield because you have one more defensive player (Toure) and other more creative (Silva). Go ahead!

Dec 23, 2012 11:01 pm

Thanks for the reply! I will work hard to get them, but I bought Ramires. Should I sell him and start saving for the better ones in your opinion? Also, what about the defensive part. Is it better to save for Lloris or for Maicon or for Kompany + someone else? Thanks again!

Dec 24, 2012 12:18 am

Hi. Ramires is a great player but, as it happen with Toure, he is more defensive. In our opinion your CB’s are the weakest point.

Dec 24, 2012 4:27 pm

Thanks again, I have 100k now but I have so much choice. I was thinking of Kompany + maybe Mata. But David Silva is also nice, Lloris is also nice and replacing Van Persie by Rooney would be good either. What do you think? Or maybe Maicon?

Dec 26, 2012 8:09 am

The best for us can be the worst for you. We love David Silva. He is much much better than Mata. He has on of the best ball control of FUT 13. With 100k you can buy Kompany+Silva. Lloris and Maicon can stay for later.

Dec 24, 2012 5:26 pm

Hi, my team is Cech Cole Kompany Vermaelen Richards Toure Hazard Gerrard sturridge (I just switched him for walcott as I like his dribbling more) Suarez and Bent. I have 82,000 coins and balotelli and nasri selling on trade which should bring me to around 120,000 coins which is enough for either rooney or aguero… Which do you think I should buy?? and would you recommend Valencia for that right mid position over sturridge? also does silva have the ability to crack longshots like gerrard and lampard? because I sold him and now I’m not sure whether to regret it or not… Thank you!!

Dec 26, 2012 8:20 am

Hi. It depends of your formation, your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best for us could be the worse for you. We definitely love David Silva but he doesn’t have a long shot as Gerrard or Lampard have. Also, we prefer Valencia to Sturridge. Rooney is a great players but Aguero is faster. You already have a great team. Buying Aguero or Rooney will be the first step to get a better one, but you should look to David Silva again…

Dec 26, 2012 10:37 pm

Hi, i would like to recieve some feedback on my team

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Adebayor Walcott

Dec 27, 2012 12:04 pm

Hi. You have a nice team but you should try to collect some more coins to improve it. It’s not so hard to earn coins. We will explain how it is possible, very soon here on this website.
Our advices depends of your budget, your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best for us could be the worse for you.
If you have no more coins, you already have good players. Our suggestions are the same of the FIFA 13 Ultimate Team 25k coins budget of this article.

Dec 27, 2012 8:20 pm

I’m struggling where to go with my team from here…

Formation 4-3-3

Richards Luiz Terry A.Cole

D. Silva Ramires Oscar

Hulk Pato Robinho

Subs: Cesar, Agger, Yaya Toure, Taarabt, Honda, Walcott, V.Persie

I’m currently saving for Neymar to replace Robinho, but thats about all I want to change, thinking of swapping V.Persie for Balotelli, just need a second opinion on where to go with it.

Dec 27, 2012 8:23 pm

sorry i mean ‘that’s about all i can figure out to change’

Dec 27, 2012 10:40 pm

Hi. It depends of your budget, your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best for us could be the worse for you.
In our opinion, you already have a nice team. Our first tip is to not buy any IF. They are really expensive, not good value for money. For us, RVP is better than Balotelli and you should improve first your main 11, not the bench.
You can try Lloris to replace Cech or Maicon to Richards place. Neymar for Robinho place seems to us a great improvement. Specially if you love skills moves.

Dec 27, 2012 10:49 pm

Hi just wondering about any alternatives for my starting 11 (cheap, have near to nothing coins) any suggestions with price??


baines Djourou koscielny vertonghen walker
fellaini witsel (I know he’s not bpl but my personal favourite)
Defoe mirallas

bench includes big names such as cabaye and tiote vela diaby coloccini sinclair??

should I sell anyone too and what price for roughly?
thanks for your help

Dec 28, 2012 12:33 am

Hi. It depends of your budget, your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best for us could be the worse for you.
Our suggestions is to replace Cisse (+ 0k) or Dzeko (+300 coins) by Mirallas.
You already have a nice team for your budget. You need more coins to great improvements.

Dec 28, 2012 1:03 am

Hi. I have premier league squad in the formation 5-2-1-2 with:
David Silva
Van Persie-Rooney
The problem is that I feel like silva is not playing to his potential as a cf. I am therefore wondering if it is smart toget silva down to cm and get rid of Mata, place Rooney at cf again and buy Aguero for st? Or should i play some more with Silva and focus on getting Vidic as a replacement for Vermaelen first?

Dec 28, 2012 1:04 am

I forgot to mention that I only have 120k so I will only be able to buy one of these players.
Thank you for helping me out

Dec 28, 2012 9:35 am

Hi. What a wonderful team!
It is very smart to get Silva down to cm and get rid of Mata, place Rooney at cf again and buy Aguero for st. We think that it is the best solution.
About Vidic, it depends of your style of play. He is the best defender on the area, but he is very slow. if you often suffer counter-attacks, Vidic isn’t the right man for you.
It depends of your style of play, your preferences, etc… but, in our opinion, buying Aguero is a lot more important and 120k is enough for that.

Diego Alvarez
Dec 28, 2012 7:17 am

Hi my team use the 4-2-3-1 formation
Parker – Arteta
Kagawa – Cazorla – Mata
it’s a good team?… any recomendations?

Dec 28, 2012 10:07 am

You already have a nice team for your budget.
Recommendations? It depends of your budget, your style of play, your preferences, etc…
If any of these players are not playing as you wish, try to replace him by the the corresponding player of our 25k budget BPL team.

Dec 28, 2012 8:22 am

I’ve got 28k but I don’t know who to get my squad is
Julio cesar gk
Sagna rb. Vermaelen cb lescott cb Gibbs lb
Gerrard cazorla wilshere all cm
Oxlade chamberlain lf Walcott rf and ba st formation 4321

Dec 28, 2012 10:13 am

It depends of your budget, your style of play, your preferences, etc…
Assuming that you play on a 4-3-3, we think that you one of these CM’s should be more defensive: Fellaini, Ramires, etc…
That would be the change number one, if this was our team.

Dec 28, 2012 8:32 am

My subs are g.johnson mandanda Ruiz dzeko agger David villa Cahill

Dec 28, 2012 10:24 am

I play on 4321
Any attacking players to improve on?

Dec 28, 2012 7:53 pm

I just dismantled my 4-2-3-1 BPL Team as I have way better results with my 4-2-2-2 Serie A and 4-3-3 La Liga Team. My problem was my attacks just never seemed to have any space to work unless they were moving toward the corner flag.
I was using:
GK- Lloris,
Cole, Kompany, IF Koscielny, Maicon
Toure, Tiote (I tried Gerrard here too)
Tevez, Nasri, Aguero
Balotelli (also tried Higuain and IF Milito) they were worse.

Is going 4-1-2-1-2 with the team in your article the best way to find more attacking strength or should I repeat the formations I use in other leagues? My 4-3-3 Spanish team has lots of space on the wings and Falcao finishes well but they still aren’t as strong as my 4-2-2-2 Serie A.

Dec 29, 2012 8:54 am

Hi. No one said that 4-1-2-1-2 is better. Us, for example, prefer 4-4-2 formation. We think that you should repeat the formation that you more enjoy. You can try other formations before to chose, but you will be more comfortable with the ones you have played more.
You already have a good BPL team. Have you tried Ramires on Tiote place? And David Silva on Nasri place?
About Spanish team, 4-3-3 is a very offensive formation. If you are not scoring as you do with Serie A, you should try to replace your attackers.

Dec 28, 2012 8:55 pm

Any suggestions for my 4-4-1-1 BPL team?

So far I have Terry, Vermalen, Sagna at the back
Walcott and Young in the midfield
Balotelli Center forward

I think I have around 60k left , with focus on my attack. Any tips on who to get next, I’m thinking Tevez upfront but that is a lot. I play on Xbox.

Thanks a lot guys.

Dec 28, 2012 8:55 pm

Typo, 50k left.

Dec 29, 2012 5:28 am

Hey guys just a heads up i run almost the same team but with a few upgrades ( so i think ) also tempted to spend some gold and get Lloris but Heart is doing well at the moment, also i heard Rooney makes an amazing CAM but Doubt ill get him as his price is to high for what he really is.

GK: Joe Heart
CB: Nemanja Vidic
CB: Vicent Kompany
RB: Maicon
LB: Ashley Cole
CDM: Yaya Touré
CAM: David Silva
RM: Juan Mata (IF)
LM: Eden Hazard
ST: Van persie
ST: Sergio Aguero

Dec 29, 2012 11:26 am

Hi! What a amazing team you have!
We have no recommendations to you. You already have a superb team. And we agree with you: the better players, like Rooney, are overpriced.
About Joe Hart, it’s up to you. If he is playing well, why to buy Lloris?!
One final note. The only way to improve your team is to changing to a Hybrid one. Take a look to our team on MY FUT 13. Regards!
