Introduction to the FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Guide

 

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, this is because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.

When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 15. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best athletes to choose.

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

Last but not least, it’s mandatory that you tune all of your team so that the individual and team chemistry will be as high possible. For this last step to be easier, the majority of the players start to define the type of team they’re building. Some choose to gather players of the same nationality, while others decide to form a team of players from the same league. The most popular leagues are the Brazilian league and the Barclays Premier League. There are also more experienced players that can form hybrid teams without damaging team chemistry a lot.

All of these steps are necessary to have; or it could mean that the team is not always well built as it could be. This article aims to help those that want to form a FIFA 15 Ultimate Team based on players from the Barclays Premier League. Even the players that have a BPL team, could take out some valuable conclusions from this guide that could help you make your team even better.

We received thousands of comments about similar guides that we have published in previous years. Most of them have asked us to help improve their teams and the players they had. It’s important that the readers understand that this guide is simply guidance. It’s a theme too vast and the player combinations are almost infinite. Besides, there are various factors that influence the choices, like one’s style of play, the formations used, the available budget, the preferences or even the time spent playing. There’s still one uncertain component: a good player for someone might not be for another. If there was a better team everyone would fight to get it. Part of the fun of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is this: everyone has their personal club and players.

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

  • Only Gold Players
    • In this guide we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them. In the future we may come to publish guides exclusively talking about these categories.
  • Only Regular Players
    • In this guide we didn’t consider In Forms (IF). They’re extremely expensive and in most cases are not considered good value for money. They should only be used by players with generous budgets, that already have the best team possible and that want small upgrades.
  • Only Normal Players
    • In this guide we didn’t consider players that have been transferred to other clubs or that have been reviewed (UP). Only players that started their season in the Barclays Premier League and with their original attributes were considered.
  • Only Original Attributes
    • In this guide we didn’t consider changes made on a players performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.
  • Position analysis
    • To make the comprehension of this guide easier we divided the players in nine distinct groups in order of their original position: Goalkeeper (GK), central backs (CB), right backs (RB and RWB), left backs (LB and LWB), central defensive midfielders (CDM) central midfielders (CM and CAM), right midfielders (RM, RW and RF), left midfielders (LM, LW and LF) and forwards (CF and ST).
  • Prices at the date of publication of the guide
    • In the chapter where FIFA 15 Ultimate Team BPL teams are suggested, the prices considered are the ones of the date of the guide’s publication: October 2014. It’s natural that the prices have suffered some oscillations throughout the season, so they should only be considered as guiding prices.

     
     

     
     
     
     
     
     

    Barclays Premier League

     

    No league is as spectacular as the main football competition in the United Kingdom. The champions in the second biggest league in the world are made through the made points system. Whichever team gathers the most points wins the league. The top four teams gain access to the champions league of the proceeding year, while the last three trade places with the first three promoted teams from the Football League Championship. Every season starts in August and finishes in May, having 38 game weeks with 10 matches each, being a total of 380 matches per season.

    The Barclays Premier League is the most watched football league in the world, broadcasted in 212 countries and in more than 600 million homes. It’s also the second football league with more assists and the second best league classified in the UEFA league coefficients.

    Since the competition began in 1992 the Premier League has only been conquered by 5 clubs. The dominant club is Manchester United, with a total of 13 titles. London’s teams only won the league three times while Manchester City won it twice and Blackburn Rovers once.

    As of last season, the BPL lost many good players such as David Luiz (PSG), Ashley Cole (Roma), Thomas Vermaelen (Barcelona), Demba Ba (Besiktas), Fernando Torres (AC Milan), Pepe Reina (Bayern Munich), Javi Garcia (Zenit St Petersburg), Micah Richards (Fiorentina), Alvaro Negredo (Valencia), Nemanja Vidic (Inter Milan), Patrice Evra (Juventus), Nani (Sporting Lisbon), Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund) and Javier Hernandez (Real Madrid), they’re good examples of this. But, the biggest outgoing transfer was Liverpool’s Luis Suarez move to Barcelona for £75 million pounds.

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″]

    These transfers didn’t necessarily make the league weaker. The English teams spent £835 million pounds on strong reinforcements, more £200 million than in the previous season. The most popular transfers were David Ospina and Alexis Sánchez (Arsenal), Aly Cissokho (Aston Villa), Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Luis Filipe (Chelsea), Abel Hernandez (Hull City), Esteban Cambiasso (Leicester City), Mario Balotelli, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Alberto Moreno and Divock Origi (Liverpool), Fernando and Mangala (Manchester City), Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcão (Manchester United), Rémy Cabella (Newcastle), Mauricio Isla and Eduardo Vargas (QPR), Fraser Forster, Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pellè (Southampton), Bafetimbi Gomez (Swansea City), Federico Fazio (Tottenham Spurs), Silvestre Varela (West Bromwich Albion), Enner Valencia, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho and Alex Song (West Ham United). But the biggest signing of the season was made between Madrid and Manchester United, with the purchase of Di Maria by the Red Devils for £60 million pounds.

    The team making decisions are made tougher, but in a good way because of the vast quality of players in the league. Keep in mind since it is in the United Kingdom where FUT 15 is played the most, the Barclays Premier League is the most seen inside game’s teams. This means it is also the most expensive league, so it is not recommended for players with a limited budget.

    FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Goalkeepers (GK)

     

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

    The goalkeepers with most prestige in the Barclays Premier League are the stalwart Petr Cech, the newly upgraded Hugo Lloris and the new young star Thibaut Courtois. With having the best rating they are also the most searched for by this league’s teams so this makes them more expensive.

     

    MOST HIGH-RATED GOALKEEPERS
    Thibaut Courtois86ChelseaBelgium
    Hugo Lloris85SpursFrance
    Petr Čech85ChelseaCzech Republic
    De Gea83Manchester UtdSpain
    Simon Mignolet82LiverpoolBelgium
    Tim Howard82EvertonUnited States
    Joe Hart82Manchester CityEngland
    Asmir Begović82Stoke CityBosnia Herz.
    Wojciech Szczęsny80ArsenalPoland
    Michel Vorm79SpursNetherlands


     

    When choosing a good goalkeeper it’s not only down to his rating. There are two fundamental attributes for choosing a good goalkeeper: reflexes and diving.

    The first measures a goalkeeper’s agility when making a save. The best on this aspect are Hugo Lloris, De Gea and Courtois.

     

    GOALKEEPERS WITH BEST REFLEXES
    De Gea88Manchester UtdSpain
    Hugo Lloris88SpursFrance
    Thibaut Courtois88ChelseaBelgium
    Joe Hart86Manchester CityEngland
    Willy Caballero86Manchester CityArgentina
    Asmir Begović85Stoke CityBosnia Herz.
    Simon Mignolet84LiverpoolBelgium
    Petr Čech84ChelseaCzech Republic
    Wojciech Szczęsny84ArsenalPoland
    David Ospina84ArsenalColombia


     

    Diving is a fundamental attribute when choosing a goalkeeper. It measures the capacity for a goalkeeper to make a save when jumping.

    De Gea is also the best one with this attribute, with a slight advantage over Lloris. For those who are looking for the cheaper solution, Asmir Begović is a valid alternative.

     

    GOALKEEPER WITH BEST DIVING
    De Gea87Manchester UtdSpain
    Hugo Lloris86SpursFrance
    Joe Hart85Manchester CityEngland
    Thibaut Courtois84ChelseaBelgium
    Asmir Begović84Stoke CityBosnia Herz.
    Simon Mignolet84LiverpoolBelgium
    Tim Howard84EvertonUnited States
    Petr Čech83ChelseaCzech Republic
    Wojciech Szczęsny83ArsenalPoland
    David Ospina82ArsenalColombia


     

    The most experienced Ultimate Team players know that another leaning factor on a goalkeeper’s performance without considering the remaining four attributes: height. The more tall a goalkeeper is, better his chances of having a clean sheet.

    This is Hugo Lloris’s weak point. Even though he can’t be considered a short goalkeeper, the truth is he’s 13 cm short of the mighty Fraser Forster, this gold goalkeeper holds the title of tallest Barclays Premier League Goalkeeper. Cech and Courtois are both very tall goalkeepers.

     

    TALLEST GOALKEEPERS
    Fraser Forster201SouthamptonEngland
    Asmir Begović200Stoke CityBosnia Herz.
    Thibaut Courtois199ChelseaBelgium

    Mark Schwarzer194ChelseaAustralia
    De Gea193Manchester UtdSpain
    Ben Foster193West BromEngland
    Alex McCarthy193QPREngland


     

    The choice for the best Barclays Premier League goalkeeper on FIFA 15 Ultimate team is not easy.

    In our opinion, the position is in good hands (literally) if you choose Thibaut Courtois or Hugo Lloris. The two goalkeepers are equivalent on the most important attributes, but the Belgian is better in the other attributes. He is also 11 cm taller which makes all the difference.

    De Gea is the one with better reflexes and diving, but in the other attributes he is not good enough. We recommend him only for those who frequently pass the ball to the goalkeeper.

    When talking about cheapest goalkeepers our suggestion is Asmir Begovic. Only a few EPL goalkeepers have better reflexes and diving than him. Besides, he’s also the second tallest of them all, which takes out any doubt for those who still had any. For those who don’t want to choose him because of the difficulty of having good chemistry links with the centre back, Simon Mignolet is a good alternative.

    FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Centre Backs (CB)

     

    A goalkeepers 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.

    With the move of Vidic to the Calcio, Kompany is now the centre back with the best reputation in the Barclays Premier League. The remaining good players to consider because of experience are John Terry and Per Mertesacker, and by irreverence, Eliaquim Mangala and Jan Vertonghen come to mind.

     

    HIGHEST RATED CENTRE BACKS
       Vincent Kompany86Manchester CityBelgium
       Per Mertesacker83ArsenalGermany
       John Terry83ChelseaEngland
       Jan Vertonghen82BelgiumTottenham
       Gary Cahill81ChelseaEngland
       Martin Škrtel81LiverpoolSlovakia
       Laurent Koscielny81ArsenalFrance
       Mamadou Sakho81LiverpoolFrance
       Phil Jagielka80EvertonEngland
       Federico Fazio80TottenhamArgentina
       Eliaquim Mangala80Manchester CityFrance
       Ron Vlaar79Aston VillaNetherlands
       Dejan Lovren79LiverpoolCroatia
       Joleon Lescott79West BromEngland
       Michael Dawson79Hull CityEngland


     

    On a centre back, two attributes assume particular importance on their performance: defending and the new attribute physical, which represents strength, stamina, aggression and jumping.

    A player with better defending will have an easier chance of dispossessing the opponent and avoid him reaching your box.

    It’s the case of the two best rated players: Kompany and Mertesacker. It’s really hard to get past them. The most experienced players are normally those who have a higher rating with this attribute. Terry, Gary Cahill and Skrtel prove this.

     

    CENTRE BACKS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
       Vincent Kompany87Manchester CityBelgium
       Per Mertesacker87ArsenalGermany
       John Terry84ChelseaEngland
       Gary Cahill84ChelseaEngland
       Martin Škrtel82LiverpoolSlovakia
       Jan Vertonghen82BelgiumTottenham
       Laurent Koscielny82ArsenalFrance
       Ron Vlaar81Aston VillaNetherlands
       Phil Jagielka81EvertonEngland
       Dejan Lovren81LiverpoolCroatia
       Federico Fazio81TottenhamArgentina
       Joleon Lescott81West BromEngland
       Michael Dawson81Hull CityEngland
       Jonny Evans81Manchester UnitedEngland
       Rio Ferdinand81QPREngland


     

    The new physical attribute shows the old heading capability but also how likely the players are to win game with their body. This is a crucial attribute when looking for the best centre back.

    In this chapter Huth, Mangala and Shawcross are the strongest ones.

     

    CENTRE BACKS WITH BETTER PHYSICAL
       Robert Huth86Stoke CityGermany
       Eliaquim Mangala85Manchester CityFrance
       Ryan Shawcross84Stoke CityEngland
       Mamadou Sakho83LiverpoolFrance
       Martin Škrtel82LiverpoolSlovakia
       Ron Vlaar82Aston VillaNetherlands
       Younès Kaboul82TottenhamFrance
       Marcos Rojo82Manchester UnitedArgentina
       Ashley Williams82Swansea CityWales
       Vincent Kompany81Manchester CityBelgium
       Jan Vertonghen81BelgiumTottenham
       Phil Jagielka81EvertonEngland
       Dejan Lovren81LiverpoolCroatia
       Federico Fazio81TottenhamArgentina
       John Terry80ChelseaEngland


     

    Defending and heading may be useless against fast opponents. It’s necessary to fight fire with fire. No one likes feeling impotent when seeing you get overrun by extremely fast players. Even though, in a way, centre backs aren’t that fast, every team needs one of these players with a high pace attribute.

    The weak relish for heading by Kompany is in a way compensating due to his good speed. But there are faster players in the Barclays Premier League. The first on the list is Nedum Onuoha. We don’t consider him a viable option since he lacks the remaining attributes necessary for a good central back. Koscielny, Mangala and Smalling are also fast players. They possess these attributes and in that way they make themselves a viable option for a defence based on the BPL.

     

    CENTRE BACKS WITH BETTER PACE
       Nedum Onuoha83QPREngland
       Laurent Koscielny81ArsenalFrance
       Vlad Chiricheş81TottenhamRomania
       Chris Smalling78Manchester UnitedEngland
       Eliaquim Mangala76Manchester CityFrance
       Marcos Rojo75Manchester UnitedArgentina
       Steven Caulker75QPREngland
       Curtis Davies75Hull CityEngland
       Gary Cahill74ChelseaEngland
       Jonny Evans74Manchester UnitedEngland
       Younès Kaboul74TottenhamFrance
       Matija Nastasić74Manchester CitySerbia
       Kolo Touré74LiverpoolIvory Coast
       Winston Reid74West HamAustralia
       Vincent Kompany73Manchester CityBelgium


     

    Kompany is our number one choice for this position. Fast and with good defending and attacking attributes, the Belgian is the most expensive of all centre backs in the Barclays Premier League.

    In our opinion, Koscielny and Mangala are the centre backs that come closest to Kompany’s quality. The Frenchman, Koscielny, has a slight advantage because he a work rate more appropriate to his position. Jan Vertonghen and Marcos Rojo are also good options.

    FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Right Backs (RB and RWB)

     

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

    Choosing the best right back for a Barclays Premier League Team is an extremely hard choice. There are various valid options depending on the style of play. The first seven, seen below, are the most popular.

     

    HIGHEST RATED RIGHT BACKS
       Pablo Zabaleta82Manchester CityArgentina
       Branislav Ivanović81ChelseaSerbia
       Bacary Sagna80Manchester CityFrance
       Mathieu Debuchy80ArsenalFrance
       Séamus Coleman78EvertonRepublic of Ireland
       Kyle Walker77TottenhamEngland
       Rafael77Manchester UnitedBrazil
       Glen Johnson76LiverpoolEngland
       Àngel Rangel75Swansea CitySpain
       Daryl Janmaat75NewcastleNetherlands


     

    There are very important attributes for any right back: defending and pace.

    Since they’re defenders they should have good defending capacities. This reduces a team’s risk of conceding.

    Ivanovic is the player that best fits this aspect. The only other players that offer any type of competition are the Manchester City duo Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta.

     

    RIGHT BACKS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
       Branislav Ivanović86ChelseaSerbia
       Pablo Zabaleta83Manchester CityArgentina
       Bacary Sagna81Manchester CityFrance
       Séamus Coleman78EvertonRepublic of Ireland
       Mathieu Debuchy78ArsenalFrance
       Kyle Walker76TottenhamEngland
       Rafael76Manchester UnitedBrazil
       Àngel Rangel76Swansea CitySpain
       Glen Johnson75LiverpoolEngland
       Daryl Janmaat74NewcastleNetherlands


     

    A flanked game tends to be faster than a game based in the middle of the field. The players that fill these spaces are obligated to be fast, both penetrating defensive and attacking moves of the team. Pace is one of the most important requirements for a good full back.

    Kyle Walker is the fastest gold right backs in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. The English international player is far superior in this aspect when compared to every BPL full back. Besides Kyle Walker, only Rafael and Séamus Coleman may be considered reasonably fast players.

     

    RIGHT BACKS WITH BETTER PACE
       Kyle Walker91TottenhamEngland
       Rafael83Manchester UnitedBrazil
       Séamus Coleman81EvertonRepublic of Ireland
       Glen Johnson79LiverpoolEngland
       Mathieu Debuchy76ArsenalFrance
       Daryl Janmaat76NewcastleNetherlands
       Pablo Zabaleta74Manchester CityArgentina
       Bacary Sagna74Manchester CityFrance
       Branislav Ivanović67ChelseaSerbia
       Àngel Rangel65Swansea CitySpain


     

    Pablo Zabaleta is the highest rated right back but once again, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s the best choice for this position. In our opinion him and Ivanović are the right choices for players that don’t use full backs to attack.

    On the other hand there’s Kyle Walker. He has fantastic pace, good dribbling, passing and his high attacking work rate makes him a good player for those that see full backs as second wingers.

    For those that search for an intermediate solution, in other words, a player that defends and attacks fairly, we advise Séamus Coleman. He is a very balanced athlete.

    Best FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Left Backs (LB e LWB)

     

    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.

    There are three BPL players that stand out in this position: the solid Leighton Baines, the debutant Filipe Luis and the speedy Gaël Clichy.

     

    HIGHEST RATED LEFT BACKS
       Filipe Luís82ChelseaBrazil
       Leighton Baines82EvertonEngland
       Gaël Clichy80Manchester CityFrance
       Azpilicueta79ChelseaSpain
       Kieran Gibbs78ArsenalEngland
       Aleksandar Kolarov78Manchester CitySerbia
       Alberto Moreno78LiverpoolSpain
       José Enrique77LiverpoolSpain
       Monreal76ArsenalSpain
       Luke Shaw75Manchester UnitedEngland


     

    The vast experience of Filipe Luis, Clichy and Baines contribute decisively to make these players the three best defending left backs in the league. Even though being one of the fastest, using Luke Shaw should not be an option for teams where it’s necessary when defending frequently. He may be good in Career Mode but in Ultimate Team there are many players better than him.

     

    LEFT BACKS WITH BETTER DEFENDING
       Filipe Luís81ChelseaBrazil
       Gaël Clichy80Manchester CityFrance
       Leighton Baines80EvertonEngland
       Azpilicueta80ChelseaSpain
       Kieran Gibbs79ArsenalEngland
       Aleksandar Kolarov78Manchester CitySerbia
       José Enrique77LiverpoolSpain
       Luke Shaw75Manchester UnitedEngland
       Alberto Moreno74LiverpoolSpain
       Monreal74ArsenalSpain


     

    The promising, Anfield tied Alberto Moreno is the fastest left back in the English league. He makes his speed his biggest threat, and only Clichy can be compared with this stat.

     

    LEFT BACKS WITH BETTER PACE
       Alberto Moreno87LiverpoolSpain
       Gaël Clichy85Manchester CityFrance
       Filipe Luís82ChelseaBrazil
       Luke Shaw82Manchester UnitedEngland
       Kieran Gibbs81ArsenalEngland
       José Enrique81LiverpoolSpain
       Azpilicueta79ChelseaSpain
       Monreal78ArsenalSpain
       Davide Santon78NewcastleItaly
       Leighton Baines77EvertonEngland


     

    Clichy and Filipe Luis are with no question the best left backs playing in the Barclays Premier League. Clichy is faster, but the Brazilian player is generally a more complete player.

    Leighton Baines and Alberto Moreno are valid alternatives to these two players but for different reasons. The first besides being an extremely balanced player is also a good crosser. He’s a good choice for more attacking teams. What is lacking to him, Moreno has a lot. He is the fastest left back, something so important in FUT 15. However, don’t ask much more that that from him.

    Of all the remaining players, Kieran Gibbs is our cheapest choice. He doesn’t have the same efficiency as the others we referred too but he’s fast enough to cause some offensive damage and possesses reasonable defending.

    Best FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Central Defensive Midfielder (CDM)

     

    Many of the FIFA 15 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.

    Now that Yaya Touré is a CM, Matic, Ramires and Gerrard are the players highest rated in this position.

     

    HIGHEST RATED CENTRAL DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS
       Nemanja Matić82ChelseaSerbia
       Steven Gerrard82LiverpoolEngland
       Ramires81ChelseaBrazil

       Daley Blind79Manchester UnitedNetherlands
       Cheick Tioté78NewcastleIvory Coast
       John Obi Mikel78ChelseaNigeria


     

    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.

    The best central defensive midfielder play for Manchester City: Fernando. He is a good choice for teams that want to complicate an opponent’s game in the space between the midfield and the defence.

    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 Barclays Premier League. Tioté, Obi Mikel, Fellaini, Wanyama and Carlos Sánchez are good examples of that. On the other hand there’s Ramires. Even though he’s a really special player, Chelsea’s Brazilian rarely wins a physical brawl due to being the weakest central defensive midfielder in the BPL.

    Ramires is our favourite because he possess a much appreciated cocktail of work rate, pace and stamina which allows him to be everywhere. He is also the fastest and the CDM with highest accumulated score. He is weak physically, but if you have played with him in previous years, you will be pleasantly surprised. He is one of the players who most benefited from the fitness changes introduced this year.

    There are still very good options that offer a cheap price but still good quality wise, like Matic. For those who want an element that offer defensive solidity to the team, Fernando is a very interesting choice. For those that search for someone that can roam to further zones around the pitch, Tioté is a player to considered.

    Best FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Centre Midfielders (CM e CAM)

     

    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.

    It’s in midfield that there’s more quality in the Barclays Premier League. Some of the world’s best footballers play there. It’s the case of the Touré, Ozil and the newcomer Di Maria.

    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 Ozil and Mata have a great passing stat, Fábregas is the one who does it better in the whole Barclays Premier League.

    Di Maria is the most interesting player in the Barclays Premier League Midfield. He is levelled with the best players at various attributes, like passing, dribbling, pace and long shots.

    Another essential player is Yaya Touré, in large parts because of his amazing strength and stamina. He is a very balanced player but his new medium-medium work rate doesn’t let him to give everything he has to give to the team. In our opinion, he was the best FIFA player in the past few years, but he is not any more. Obviously, he is still a wonderful player but if you were used to playing with him, you will notice a considerable difference.

    Ozil, Mata, Fábregas and Oscar are cheaper players that can perform well their roles as centre midfielders.

    Our cheapest choice falls to Coutinho. Even though he isn’t very physically powerful, the Brazilian is fast dribble and is a good passer.

    Best FUT 15 Barclays Premier League Right Wingers (RM, RW e RF)

     

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

    The right side of the midfield was in earlier seasons the weak point of Barclays Premier League based teams. The addition of Alexis Sánchez to this league and the passage of Willian from left to right side came as a solution to this problem.

       James Milner78Manchester CityEngland
       Bojan77Stoke CitySpain


     

    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 Barclays Premier League is extremely well served in this chapter. Five gold players have pace over 90, being the highlighted sprinter Theo Walcott, the fastest gold player of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.

    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 Willian and Alexis Sánchez the best.

       Erik Lamela83TottenhamArgentina
       Adam Johnson82SunderlandEngland
       Theo Walcott81ArsenalEngland


     

    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.

    The weakest point of the Barclays Premier League Wingers is surprising – passing. Only James Milner offers good quality passing. Sterling, for example, could’ve been an option to consider filling this slot in virtue of his fantastic pace, but he’s affected negatively for missing frequently passes to his more forward team mates.

       Alexis Sánchez75ArsenalChile
       Theo Walcott75ArsenalEngland
       Aaron Lennon73TottenhamEngland


     

    Aléxis Sánchez and Willian are clearly the most indicated players to occupy this position in a team without budget restraints. Our preference goes toward the Brazilian player that even though has worse shooting can be faster and help the defence more due to his work rate being high/high and great stamina. However, if you are looking for someone for this position with good shooting, Sánchez may be a better choice. Navas is the third name in our list.

    From the most popular there’s also James Milner. That even though has good passing, he is the slowest of the whole league. We discourage this purchase.

    For those that can’t pay so many coins there’s a player that doesn’t diverge far from the best: Kevin Mirallas. The Belgian is as fast as Sánchez, has almost better dribbling than Navas and passes much better than the Chilean player. Besides having a work rate adjusted to the position he occupies he is still has a 4 star week foot and 4 star skill moves.

    Barclays Premier League Left Wingers (LM, LW e LF)

     

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

    Now that David Silva has changed his position, Eden Hazard has finally competition to his position.

       Matt Jarvis76West HamEngland
       Jay Rodriguez75SouthamptonEngland


     

    Even though they’re fast, the left wingers aren’t nearly as fast as their team mates from the right side. The fastest one is Hazard.

     

    LEFT WINGERS WITH BETTER PACE
       Eden Hazard89ChelseaBelgium

       David Silva76Manchester CitySpain
       Emanuele Giaccherini75SunderlandItaly
       Lukas Podolski74ArsenalGermany


     

    With the exception of Podolski that isn’t a natural born dribbler there’s a proportional quality between the left winger and his dribbling. It’s natural that Hazard, David Silva, Nasri and Santi Cazorla are the ones most highlighted in this chapter.

       Nacer Chadli79TottenhamBelgium
       Matt Jarvis78West HamEngland


     

    David Silva is clearly the best fitted passer between the remaining left wingers. Even though we discourage, Santi Cazorla is an option for those that don’t necessarily need pace.

       Matt Jarvis74West HamEngland
       Adnan Januzaj72Manchester UnitedBelgium
       Varela71West BromVarela


     

    Hazard’s price is prohibits him from many budgets, proving the worth of the player. He’s without a doubt the best Barclays Premier League left winger. He’s the fastest one and the best dribbler. He possesses a series of other developed attributes such as balance, agility, acceleration and ball control. We only discourage him for teams that will need him defending, given his work rate high/low. David Silva is also a wonderful player but not for this position. He is a top-quality player, especially in ball control and passing, but his pace is not enough to convince us.

    For those that don’t want to pay as many coins for the Belgian, Christian Eriksen is the most complete player and for that reason, our cheapest choice. Nasri and Cazorla are not fast enough and André Schürrle has bad passing stats.

    One of the most used players in the BPL is Podolski. Even though he’s the one that has the best shooting, his passing and dribbling don’t convince us.

    Barclays Premier League Forwards (CF and ST)

     

    The forwards are the players on which fall the most responsibility of scoring goals.

    In the Barclays Premier League, the most popular are players that could play in any club in the world: Robin Van Persie, Falcão, Sergio Aguero, Rooney and Diego Costa

    To score goals shooting is necessary. If either by foot or head, the most important attribute for a forward are: shooting, heading and pace.

    Most goals are scored with the foot so good shooting is a necessary attribute for a forward.

    Robin Van Persie is the third best shooter of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. Only Cristiano Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are superior. Besides his team mates Wayne Rooney and Falcão, Aguero possess an above average shot. This means the best forwards are the ones that best shooting.

       Emmanuel Adebayor79TottenhamTogo
       Mauro Zárate79West HamArgentina


     

    Jump, strength and stamina are the ingredients to the new physical attribute, very important when we are analysing the best forwards: jump to score with the head; strength to dispute the ball with the opponents; and stamina to sprint in direction of goal at any time of the game.

    That’s here where we see that Diego Costa and Rooney are great players. Aguero and Robin Van Persie, for example, are in the bottom of this list.

       Falcao73Manchester UnitedColombia


     

    Depending on the style of play and formation, having good shooting and heading may not be enough for a striker. Especially in games that privilege counter-attack, pace is a very important attribute.

    Eto’o is not a fast striker any more. Compared to FUT 14, his pace was downgraded by 15 (!) points, leaving Remy alone at the top of the fastest strikers in the Barclays Premier League. In a way, the 34 Forwards of this league are fast players, but not as fast as the Frenchman.

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″]

    In our opinion, Aguero and Diego Costa are the best BPL strikers. The Manchester City player has a slight advantage due to his better pace and shooting. Even though he’s not the best at any of the basic attributes, no other BPL forward surpasses him in ball control, acceleration and balance.

    Choosing the best Barclays Premier League forward is a bit subjective because it depends on everyone’s style of play. It is always missing something to the best alternatives to Aguero and Diego Costa: Van Persie is slow; Falcão isn’t as good as in the previous year now that heading bug was fixed; Wayne Rooney plays better as CF or even CAM than as a striker; and Sturridge has bad passing.

    Far from these strikers quality, Benteke is our cheapest choice. Him and Lukaku may cause a lot of damage on the opponents defence.

    Barclays Premier League Team Suggestions

     

    A lot of people think that this is the most important part of the guide. It’s not. The thing that is really important to know is how to choose players based on their role and style of play that fits each player. The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of what we wrote previously. They should serve merely as orientation because it’s impossible to build a team that fits everyone. They depend on various factors we don’t know such as budget, formation, style of play and player preferences.

    To try and explore the needs of the maximum player as possible we suggest three teams with different budgets and formations: 4-1-2-1-2 with unlimited budget, 4-3-3 with 50k budget and 4-4-2 with a 10k budget.

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.

      Thibaut Courtois comes from the Spanish league and is already the best possible option as a goalkeeper for a Barclays Premiere League squad. Although Lloris is a valid choice, the Belgian is still definitely better especially for being way taller than him.

      Kompany keeps on being the boss of the defensive foursome for all and a few more reasons. Both Mangala and Koscielny are great potential partners for Man City’s centre back. In our understanding, Koscielny’s well-adjusted work rates are more important than Mangala’s air balls dominance. Kyle Walker imposes himself with his tremendous pace to gain the right back position, while the left back Filipe Luis is way too complete to simply stay out of this squad.

      Although Yaya is originally a CM in FUT 15, the CDM position works like a charm for him. He’s no longer so much of a box-to-box player now with the new medium-medium work rate. If you need someone with these characteristics, don’t hesitate to choose Ramires as well. For the next position, Di Maria is our natural choice. The Argentinian is so good that you’ll probably think to yourself what of a waste it is that you can’t use him on the wings.

      Probably the most debatable decision is on whether you choose Willian or Aléxis Sánchez. In general we’ve got kind of a technical draw. It all depends on your game style. If you want someone that will interact more with the strikers, choose Sánchez. If your preference is to distribute the ball to the rest of the team, you should be good with Willian. Now, more than ever, Eden Hazard is so brilliant there’s just no chance he could stay out of the left midfield.

      If your budget allows you, of course, Agüero and Diego Costa are the obvious choices for the attack line. The biggest surprise, however, is maybe how Sturridge now takes Falcão or Robin Van Persie’s spot on the bench, but the truth is that the young lad’s characteristics are just more appropriate to the FIFA 15 gameplay style.

      Once all the players reach maximum individual chemistry you can go without a manager for your squad. They’ll be of no use and still spend contracts.

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.

      At the goal, Begovic is an authentic bargain that will actually stand shoulder to shoulder against popular goalkeepers such as Petr Cech and Tim Howard.

      Mangala is the most expensive player in this squad but he’s definitely worth every penny. By his side, another player that was originally from the Liga Portuguesa: Marcos Rojo. The young argentinian has got good defending characteristics and his work rate makes up for Mangala’s. Coleman’s assertiveness and Alberto Moreno’s speed will complete our defending foursome.

      The central midfield position has to be Matic’s. The serbian builds up the first barrier between your goal line and the opponent, making his defensiveness and physicality count. Coutinho, which still has maximum individual chemistry even playing as a CAM, and Wilshere complete the midfield.

      While Mirallas beats the concurrence by the right wing, Eriksen or Nasri could equally fill with quality the opposite side.

      Over the attack line, Lukaku or Benteke are excellent choices. They’re very similar to each other and are good for their pace, strength and resistance mainly.

      If you still have some room in your budget, Kyle Walker, Koscielny and Willian are players that would improve this squad a lot.

    • Summary
    • The choice for this team’s players was based on analysis made in the previous chapters.

      Szczesny is the most expensive player in this squad but he’s most likely to be seen as an investment of certain return.

      The same goes for the rest of the defence. Maybe except for Smalling, all of the players are costing less than they were supposed to considering their actual quality.

      On the midfield, Tioté and Rosicky complete each other well. The first one is kind of a smaller and more defensive version of Touré, and the second is an experienced player that’s usually more advanced and is used to assisting his colleagues. Lamela and Arnautovic fill the wings in order to assist Bony and Zárate.

    1. Hi, what do you think?

      GK-Begovic
      RB-Walker
      CB-Onuoha, Koscielny
      LB-Azpilicueta
      CM-Ramires, Fabregas, Wilshere
      RF-Cuadrado
      ST-Diego Costa
      LF-Schurrle

    2. How come I don’t see Cuadrado mentioned as RM anywhere? Also, I have Eriksen as CAM, and he plays beastly!
      And Ramires as CDM for his speed/def(he’s also a decent attacker)
      Besides that, I agree with your choices, as my team has the same line-up (without Hazard and Aguero, pricey…)

    3. Hello,

      Really nice and detailed description. I have implemented a lot of it in my premiership team. I however have 1 question.
      In my original squad I had Joe Hart as goalie. He does very well on diving and reflexes. Even better then your top bargain. I was wondering why you didnt consider him as an option?

      Did you look at work rate or something? If anything, does workrate effect online play?

      • Hi. Work Rate was important in our analysis but not for GK.
        I can’t find why Joe Hart is better than Begovic, for example. They are very similar in positioning, diving and reflexes. Hart has much better speed and kicking but these stats are not much important. Begovic has better handling and he is less expensive.

    4. I really can’t imagine why everybody is trying to spend as much money on a team as they can, leaving very good players (but with lower stats) out of competition.

      In my opinion: First buy Leroy Fer. For any position… (but hey, preferably has CM of course). Has a great work rate, very hard to pass. It’s a bargain. Let’s call him the cheap Touré. Players like Sissonko and Bolasie are very underrated. Very hard to defend those as wingers. McGeary, much more useful than Jesus Navas… Also for his good work rate: Fernandinho (but I like him or Fer next to Ramires).

      So much good players which will make a much more cheaper team, but not necessary weaker!

    5. There are more than 350 comments in this page. In our opinion, that is more than enough to complement the guide. You can find in both the answers you are looking for. That’s why we will not answer to more questions about BPL squads and we will delete any future comment.
      Thank you.

      Thank you.

    7. Hi Rodrigo, this is going to be a extensive comment, i have some doubts and i’ll really appreciate if you answer all.

      I currently have a 4-3-2-1 with
      Howard
      Walker Rojo Mangala Moreno
      Fer Tiote Ramsey
      Walcott Schurrle
      Benteke

      I really like this team, but there are some positions i don’t think are working pretty well. So i was thinking in buy some players and the team would like like this:

      De Gea
      Walker Rojo(I really like him) Mangala Clichy
      Fernandinho Matic Ramsey
      Walcott Schurrle
      Sturridge

      It’s not changing too much because i only have a 20k budget to waste. Does this new team look good for you? In work rates, balance of the midfield, what do you think? Also, i have some doubts in some players… i don’t like Walker too much, which RB do u recommend? Fernandinho is good or should i try Paulinho or other player? Is Willian good enough to replace Walcott or they are both equally good? Sturridge worth it? (I tried Remy and i didn’t like it very much)

      So, what do you think of all? every other recommendation you can have for my team would be really great. Thanks for your amazing work.

      • Hi!
        I can answer to your questions but all of them (or at least almost all of them) are explained in this guide.
        I can say that I believe Begovic is a cheaper quality choice, for example. Sturridge can be replaced by Benteke and Walcott by Willian.
        Regards

    8. Hi Rodrigo! Very nice guide, it helped me a lot 😀

      Just a quick question…. I already made the 50k Budget Team with the improvements: Willian, Koscielny and Walker (like you said). What’s the next step?? I would like to improve the miedfielders, and Eriksen do not convice me… What do you think?

      Thanks a lot!

    9. Great guide I currently play 5-2-1-2 with Rojo, Kaboul And Smalling as my Cb’s is their any better cheap improvement? And additionally I like to play on the break currently my front 3 Is Barkley, Lukaku and Benteke, is there any cheap improvement?
      Thanks Jonny

    10. Great site again. I’m currently playing with your unlimited budget team without Hazard or Toure. I have Schurrle and Ramires in their places. I’ll have enough soon to upgrade one of them. Who do you recommend I get first?

      • Defiantly get hazard, he;ll really complete your attacking force, short passes and dribbling is his strengths and he has a nice finesse shot. Ramires is a very good devesnive player with good pace. He will look nice in your squad for now. Also Hazard is slightly cheaper than Yaya.

    11. Hows this

      GK- Courtois (Lloris, De Gea)
      LB- Baines (Moreno)
      CB- Kompany (Terry)
      CB- Koscielny
      RB- Walker
      CDM- Ramires
      CDM- Matic (Fellaini)
      CAM- Coutinho (Fabregas, Gerrard)
      LM- Hazard (Schurrle)
      RM- Willian (Sterling, Salah)
      ST- Sturridge (Remy, Balotelli)

    12. Hi Rodrigo.

      I have 1,5 million coins for buy a great team. BPL.
      Now Sanchez got new IF card as LW. What do you think is he better then Hazard?, if you say yes, his position is LW, and who take me to RW? or take Sanchez (LW) to LM, and RM Willian?
      What do you think?
      Thank your answer.

    13. Hows this

      GK- Courtois (Lloris, De Gea)
      LB- Baines (Moreno)
      CB- Kompany (Terry)
      CB- Koscielny
      RB- Walker
      CDM- Ramires
      CDM- Matic (Fellaini)
      CAM- Coutinho (Fabregas, Gerrard)
      LM- Hazard (Schurrle)
      RM- Willian (Sterling, Salah)
      ST- Sturridge (Remy, Balotelli)

      suggestions???

Thanks a lot

      Problem: i can`t seem to be able to win Barclays PL in quick mode, getting beaten by Manchester United and Manchester City.
      Any ideas ?

    17. Thanks Rodrigo, I already bought Sirigu, so hopefully he can help me more… so that’s why if I;m playing with Brazillian Defenders and it goes on 1 on 1 with the GK, most of the time Courtois cannot save it, maybe it’s because of his individual chemistry..

      Thanks a lot.

      Bu the way Rodrigo, For sure your playing FUT. so can we know what team and players do you have? We always ask you regarding our team, so right now we will ask you regarding your team.. hehe hope you reply.. for sure many of us want to know your list of team and players.

    18. Also Rodrigo,

      My squad right now are

      Courtois
      Filipe Luis, T Silva, D Luiz, D. Alves
      Ramires
      Hazard, Di Maria, Willian
      Costa and AGuero

      Bench and Reserves:
      Koscielny,Walker, Kompany, Clichy,
      Yaya Toure, CAM Rooney, Remy, Sturridge, Schurlle, Alexis and Walcott

      if you can look on defense I have the Brazillians, and my Chemistry is still 100 percent
      My question is should I use BPL Defense Team? Walker, Koscielny, Kompany, Filipe Luis?
      or much better with the Brazillian Defenders?

      Any more suggestions who to get?
      and how to improve my team?

    19. Hi Rodrigo….

      my formation is 41212

      for your suggestion… yaya toure should be CDM? or should I use Ramires as CDM?
      And CAM? Di Maria or CAM Toure or CAM Rooney?

      What do you believe i shoulf improve the most?
      I was thinking of players like koscielny, walker and fernandinho…
      Ill be thrilled to listen to your opinion

    21. Hi Rodrigo.I have best possible bpl squad.They played around 20 games perfect for me and i won every game with bpl side.Suddenly,they stopped to run,my wingers become very defensivly and they are out of their posessions.Di Maria is awful,too.He was very good,but now he is very bad.Same for Aguero,Costa and Toure.Should I sell them and try with some other league or what?Many thanks again 😀

    22. Hi Rodrigo… I have a question…

      will the players and the coin that you have on FIFA 15 will be carry over on FIFA 16? or what are the things that will be carry on in FIFA 16?

    23. Hi,
      I am running a 4-3-3(2) and my squad is-
      Gk- Begović (Weidenfeller as backup)
      CB- Mangala and Koscielny (Fazio as backup)
      LB- Filipe Luis (Azpilicueta as backup)
      RB- Walker
      CDM- Matić
      CM- Oscar and Couhtino (Wilshere as backup)
      RW- Mirallas (Salah as backup)
      LW- Schürrle (Erikson as backup)
      ST- Remy (Ruis Costa as backup whom I have changed to a center forward)
      Any suggestions? I don’t have many coins right now.

    24. Hi rodrigo,
      I currently use a 4-3-3 (4) team with:
      Begovic/coleman-vertongen-mangala-clichy/ ramsey- wilshere/ mata/ william- benteke- schurle
      Some backups are lukaku, erikesen, coutinho, apulinho and rojo.
      I have no idea what to improve next… I was thinking sturridge, but i love benteke too much to take him away the starting eleven ( 25 games 42 goals)
      What are your recommendations??
      Yours faithfully

    25. Rodrigo,

      This is my current team

      GK: Szczesny
      LB: Moreno
      CB: Kaboul/ Vertonghen
      RB: Debuchy/Rafael (Felt Debuchy was a good balance between speed/defense)
      CDM: Fernandinho (Has a high defensive stat for a CM and switched to CDM)
      LM: Eriksen
      CAM: Ozil (Cabella backup)
      RM: Navas (Chamberlain backup)
      ST: Remy/Welbeck (Diouf backup)

      Currently saving up for Sturridge but now thinking about buying Benteke after reading your article.

      Is there any position I should be focusing on besides striker? Any quick fixes or flaws? Thanks!

      CB- Terry Klosheiny Kompany or Mertasaker
      LM- David Silvia
      RM- Sanchez

      Just windeing who to use at CM and Striker

    29. hello rodrigo
      i ise 4-1-2-1-2 formation and my team is :
      GK : mingolet
      cb: vergouten-smailing
      rb:colman
      lb:gibbs
      cdm:matic
      cam:barkely
      lm :eriksen
      rm: millares
      st:lukaku – benteke

      i have 20k .. what improvements should i do ?

    30. Hello Rodrigo,

      This is my team: 41212
      Hart
      Zabaleta koscieñny mangala baines
      Fernandinho
      Willian mata Schurlle
      Welbeck balotelli

      I have never pass to season 1, i have been playing in season 2 and 3 for at least 15 times. I was expecting to give some quality to my team in the cam o st position but i havent find the player. I have tried with lots, specially to replace welbeck and mata, but i havent found the one. I have tried with sturridge, lukaku, jovetic, vargas and many more, but none of them has the passing skill as good as welbeck and i need it a lot.
      I was expecting if you give me your opinion on who should i try on my team.
      The way i play i quite simple, i give the ball to the two strikers and the cam, and i let them do their things, but in my opinion they all lack something in order to make my team ascend to season one.
      My buget isnt big, its not bigger than 40k.
      Thank you for your time.

    31. GK Courtois
      CB Filipe Luis
      CB Vertonghen
      CB Cahill
      RB Ivanovich
      CDM Gerrard
      LM Silva
      CAM Mata

      CAM Ozil
      CDM Matuidi
      RM Walcott
      CB Mangala
      CB Sako
      LM Nasri

      I’m looking for an upgrade either in ST or CDM. I have 40k and I’m wondering whether to sell reus as I usually bring him on as a sub. What do you think would benefit me the most.

      Great site Rodrigo, really appreciate the work you do here

    32. Hi Rodrigo, great info on this page, been using it to build up my squad.

      This is how I look at the moment:

      4-1-2-1-2

      Begovic
      Ivonavic, smalling, mertesacker, kolarov
      Matic
      Mirallas,eriksen
      Coutinho
      Benteke, dzeko

      Subs – Forster, rafael, onouha, podolski, lamela, wilshere, drogba

      Carrick in reserves.

      Couple of questions:

      I’ve got 12k coins – any recommendations to strengthen squad?
      I like the formation, but like to have pace on the wings out wide,is there a better formation for me?

      Thanks

      • The formation is OK for your players. Only you can know if it is good for your play style.
        You have a decent team but with a really low budget. You need to make a few more coins. Read a few of our guides to know how to make, at least, 10k per day without troubles.
        I think you should focus in a new CB. Mertsesacker is too slow. You can try Koscielny or Managala, for example.

    33. I need a decent cam di maria is way too expensive

      Ive tried

      Taarabt (not good)
      Contiho (too week)
      Rooney (slow and often defends when should be attacking)
      Cabella (great but more a sub)
      Roos barkley (not bad but not quite doing it for me)

      Cant seen to find one suitable in the bpl

      In using 4-1-2-1-2 formation

    34. hi Rodrigo, i have eriksen and arnautovic ad LM but the second one is bad.who can i buy?maybe schurlle(i usually cross a lot)? i tried David silva but i don’t like him,he’s too slow.

    35. Rodrigo, peço desculpa por voltar a incomodar, mas reparei que no guia do site português os comentários estão desactivados. Segui as suas sugestões como pode exemplificar: http://www.futhead.com/15/squads/12607410/

      O que alterava? Não há grandes modificações a fazer? Para o ataque posso comprar qualquer um excepto o Aguero 🙂 Aguardo resposta e continuação de um bom trabalho com ambos os sites 🙂

      • Isso é batota amigo. Os comentários estão fechados lá porque entre os mais de 350 que estão publicados há alguns que respondem à sua questão.
        Pessoalmente acho que o Courtois seria uma alteração barata. Na frente de ataque o Diego Costa também seria boa aposta.
        Cumprimentos

    36. Hey Rodrigo, what informs/special card i should buy ? BPL players only . you can list out many players as you like 🙂

    37. hi i play 3-4-1-2

      ST – Falcao/RVP
      CAM-Di MARIA
      LM- Hazard
      CM-Juan Mata/ Fabrigas
      RM – Jesus Navas
      CB- Kompany, Cahill and Terry
      GK- Courtois
      Subs : Willian, Nasri, Oscar, Silva, Costa,Cech,Dzeko
      Res:Lukaku,Matic,Gerrad, Ramires, Schurrle.

      Can you please suggest a good formation with these abv players. I feel the formation i am playing is not good defensive wise. And suggest the next players i shud buy? Toure and Sergio is already in the list.

      • Hi.
        if you pay attention to our formations guide, you will see that formations shouldn’t be chosen by the player you own. You should focus in your play style.
        About the next buys, in our opinion you should try Koscielny or Mangala instead of Cahill. Sergio Aguero and Touré are obviously the player you need more but, until you have coins to buy them you should try Ramires and take off Fabregas from your squad.

    38. Hi Rodrigo just a question to ask you,
      Who do you think I should put up front
      I can’t afford agüero because of my budget

      Anyway this is my team in a 41212(2) formation
      Gk lloris
      Rb walker
      CBs Cahill, koscielny
      Lb luis
      CDM ramires
      Cms yaya toure, fernandinho
      Cam dí maría
      St is where I have my problem
      I have 70k right now
      If you can suggest two strikers that will be great

    39. Rodrigo quick question I play 4 1 2 1 2 (2) which is based on cms rather than LM and RM, I did this to avoid hazard and willian. I play better through the middle and dont use pace, I prefer keeping the ball any suggestions are greatly appreciated

      Gk Courtois
      RB Zabaleta / Sub Rafael
      CB Koscielny, Cahill / Kompany
      LB Clichy / Sub Gibs
      CDM Ramirez / Sub Fernando
      RCM Cabella / Coutinho
      LCM Paulinho / Fernandinho
      CAM Rooney / Mata
      STs Balotelli / Costa / Sturridge

      Aguero Di Maria and Toure seem really expensive, do you suggest to start saving becouse that is what I need or are there any other changes I should do before actually going for this 3 bankdisrupting players

        • Thanks Rodrigo Much appreciated 2 Final questions….
          1st Which one would you buy first……
          2nd Ive played Courtois a number of games and I dont see a real difference with lets say Lloris / Petr Cesch…. should I sell Courtois to finance any of the above mentioned 3???

          Thanks for the advice in advance

    40. Hi Rodrigo, fantastic guide…its been of great use. I have one main query, currently playing 4-3-1-2 as love to attach through the middle and like to pass/move and this seems to be working a treat. The jury is still out for me on my best combination in midfiled and wanted your thoughts. My options are Di Maria, Toure, Mata, Fabregas, Ramires, Oscar. Majority of the time I am playing di maria (cam) with toure, ramires and mata as CMs. Would love ot hear your thoughts even if you recommend different personnel.

      Thanks

    41. Who do you think I should put up front
      (Apart from agüero because of my budget)
      Anyway this is my team
      Gk courtois
      RB walker
      Cb koscielny, Cahill
      Lb luis
      CDM yaya toure
      Rm Willian
      Lm schürle
      Cam di maria
      St no-one

    42. Hi, i play with your Unlimited Budget, but with Ramires in the CDM. My Problen is, that Aguero is not getting any chance.I´m not really good, play League 4. What should i prefer, short passing? Are there any Setting i must change? My Attackers don´t want the Ball and the Midfielder don´t have Room to pass. Sorry for my English, I´m from Germany

    43. Hi Rodrigo, fantastic website – many thanks.
      These guides are outstanding and must take huge amounts of work.
      Just a suggestion – I’ve noticed that often the values you attribute to players are out of date and therefore inaccurate (which is perfectly understandable) – what would help is if for each of your teams first squads (Unlimited Budget, 50K, 10K) you could build them on FUThead and provide the squad link in your info, so we could click the link for accurate prices.
      Thanks again
      KP

    44. Thanks for the advice Rodrigo. I think Walcott is a great RM and at the moment, he suits my playing styles but I see what you mean by getting Sanchez or Willian. The main reason I have Walcott is so he can run down the wing and either cross or cut inside and score. I don’t know whether Willian or Sanchez will feel as fast as he does but Sanchez and Willian don’t cost to much so I could try them out anyway. Also kosienly isn’t a big buy either so that isn’t a big issue.

      I don’t know whether to move Di Maria to CAM and leave Rooney out and get someone like Fabregas or Ramires. Or I use mata/Ozil at CAM and continue with Di Maria at CM.

      Thanks for the extremely helpful advice and guide so far.

    45. Hello,

      Thank you for this article. I’m now in Div 3 and I think what should I do for climbing up. I play 4-3-3(2) formation with following players
      Howard
      Walker-Mangala-Vertonghen-Gibbs
      Matić
      Coutinho-Gerrard
      Alexis-Sturridge-Schurrle

      I’ve got 25k and I don’t know who would be best purchase. Oscar instead of Coutinho? Fabregas for Gerrard? Koscielny for one of my cb’s?

    46. Hi,

      I commented on this website a few weeks ago with my a team I could make with 1.5 Million Coins.
      Since then I have made a few changes to this side.

      Formation: 3412

      GK: Courtois
      CB: Cahill, Kompany and Terry/Mertesacker
      CM: Y.Toure, Di Maria/Fabregas/Ramires
      LM: Hazard
      RM: Walcott
      CAM: Rooney/Mata/Ozil/Di Maria
      ST: RVPersie, Aguero

      For the last few weeks I have been thinking about my Central Midfield. I think my defence is solid and my strikers and wingers are great but I don’t know who to put in the CM and the CAM positions.

      Thanks for Reading, I hope you can tell me the best upgrades I could make on this team with a 1.5mil budget!

    47. To play in a 4-3-1-2 formation, you have Toure Yaya, Ramsey, Cesc, Gerrard, Ramires, Wilshere and Matic. Which three would you choose in the starting 11?

    48. Hi,

      I commented on this website a few weeks ago with my a team I could make with 1.5 Million Coins.
      Since then I have made a few changes to this side.

      Formation: 3412

      GK: Courtois
      CB: Cahill, Kompany and Terry/Mertesacker
      CM: Y.Toure, Di Maria/Fabregas/Ramires
      LM: Hazard
      RM: Walcott
      CAM: Rooney/Mata/Ozil/Di Maria
      ST: RVPersie, Aguero

      For the last few weeks I have been thinking about the Central Midfield. I think my defence is solid and my strikers and wingers are great but I don’t know who to put in the CM and the CAM positions.

      Thanks for Reading, I hope you can tell me the best upgrades I could make on this team with a 1.5mil budget!

      • The team will look like this:
        Courtois
        Cahill. Terry/Mertesacker Kompany

        Y.toure. Di maria

        Walcott/Sanchez. Hazard
        Rooney/Other.

        Aguero. RVP

      • Hi.
        I still think you could have faster CBs, like Koscielny or Mangala, and a better RM, like William or Sanchez. In fact, you already have the best CM/CAM players. If you want to upgrade it, you will need to transform your team into a hybrid squad.

    49. Hi I was just wondering if you could have a look at my team, I play 4-1-2-1-2
      Gk: courtois sub: mignolet
      Lb: luis sub: baines
      Cb: vertongen and kompany. Subs:koschienly and terry
      Rb: walker. Sub: zabaleta
      Cdm: toure. Sub:Ramires and matic
      Lm: hazard. Sub: nasri
      Rm: Sanchez. Sub:navas
      Cam: di Maria Sub: Oscar
      St: augero and van persie Sub: Costa and sturridge

      I’m looking to bring in one more world class player, was thinking about using robben as a sub? I have heard that chemistry will be locked when the match starts so I could bring him on without causing any issues? If not, I could buy messi for st and replace van persie. Then bring on lamela in rm? That way all his links are ARG to ARG? Which option would be best? Robben or messi? Also would neuer work in gk? My team chem stays at 100 but his chem is only 3, would this effect his performance?
      Thanks

      • Hi.
        We don’t have sure if the chemistry of the substitutes works in that way in FIFA 15. If yes, Robben should be OK.
        Otherwise, Messi should be perfect.
        About Neuer, his performance will be affected but he will not affect the performance of other players since the squad’s chemistry is still 100.

    50. i have also made a bpl team and it is way better then yours,

      i can easily score on division 1 + on online division its quite easy to win with that team altought it requires like 350k cash to make but its the best bpl team

    51. Currently using 451 –

      Lloris
      Walker, Mangala, Koscielny, Luis
      Willian, Ramires (CDM) Toure, Fabreagas, Schurrle
      Costa

      Have around 60k to spend? Think fabregas is maybe the weakest link…any suggestions?

    52. Hi rodrigo,
      I right now got 100k,
      What league do you suggest?
      And the league that you choose, what would be the best possible team for that league?
      Also I wanted to say that teams that were 100k a month ago are now 50-60k. how much ks will it drop more?
      A lot of questions I know haha.

      Thanks in advance! 😀

    53. 4-5-1

      Starting Line-up: Subs:
      GK: Courtois GK: Lloris
      LB: Filipe Luis LB: Clichy
      LCB: Kompany CB: Vertonghen
      RCB: Koscielny ST: Sturridge
      RB: Kyle Walker RM: Rotates between Willian and Sanchez
      LM: Andre Schurrle
      LCAM: Juan Mata
      CM: Ramires (though playing out of position from CDM to CM)
      RCAM: Di Maria
      RM: Rotates between Willian and Sanchez
      ST: Diego Costa

      • You already have a top squad. You are only missing the more expensive ones like Hazard, Aguero and Touré. With your budget it is impossible to build a better BPL team.
        If Ramires has individual chemistry 10, then it is a waste to apply him a CDM-CM card.
        Congratulations.

      my style would be to pass and use pace and pass the ball to the striker to finish..

      occasionally crossing to target man as well..

      any suggestions for player improvements? TIA

      Will you guys make a guide on Liga Bancomer MX players and Mexican national team players? And your guides that you guys wrote are great.

      CB : Koscielny, Kompany
      LB : Filipe Luis
      RB : Kyle Walker
      CM : Yaya Toure and x
      LW : Hazard
      RW : Sanchez
      CAM : Angel Di Maria
      ST : Sergio Aguero
      For second CM who I should use Rooney , Ramires or someone else ?

    59. Dear Rodrigo ,

      My Squad at the moment :

      Gk : de Gea
      Lb : Philippe luis cb : rojo and cahill Rb: Walker
      Cdm : ramires Lm : Silva Cam : mata Rm : walcott/jesus navas
      2 strikers : diego Costa and Sánchez ….

      Do you have any tips for me or better players in the positions ?

      Thank you,

      Nick

    60. Hi, I often use a 4-3-1-2 formation, my current squad is:

      GK: Lloris
      RB: Zabaleta
      CB: Vertonghen and Kompany
      LB: Filipe Luis
      MC: Gerrard, Ramsey and Fabregas
      MCO: Özil
      FW: Sturridge and Diego Costa

      Any recommendations? I had Walker, he was very fast but I bought Zabaleta because he is just much better defending and stronger, you would still insist in Walker or I keep Zabaleta? Sorry for my english…

      • Hi. Zabaleta is fine. It depends of our needs. You you want someone to defend, Zabaleta is the right choice.
        Gerrard should play in the centre because he is slower than the other players of your team.
        Regards

    61. Sold matic.. Gerrard works better for me and sold mata… Oscar is amazing at cam… Sold sturridge and bough persie and i think persie affects all the team in positive manner.. Without him like team cant breath now

    62. Rodrigo, after the last update the review/guide will have to be revised?
      The game is slower now, the rush was much reduced.

    63. Hi Rodrigo,
      Amazing guide to BPL team building. I just came across your site and found out that I pretty much have the same squad that you have suggested. Please suggest any changes I need to make after looking at my squad. TIA.

      GK : Neuer
      CB : Koscielny, Kompany
      LB : Rodriguez
      RB : Kyle Walker
      CDM : Yaya Toure
      LM : Santi Cazorla
      RM : Willian
      CAM : Angel Di Maria
      ST : Diego Costa
      ST : Sergio Aguero

      I tried Courtois but he conceded many goals so I went with Neuer because he let me retain 100% Chem. I play 4-1-2-1-2.
      Thanks.

        • Thanks and a correction I play with Jose Enrique at LB and I’m thinking of replacing him with Filipe Luis. I’ll also try Schurrle.

            • Hi Rodrigo,
              I’m trying to build a hybrid squad, I’m changing the formation to 3-4-1-2. My squad would be :
              GK : Neuer
              CB : Kompany, Mertesacker, Boateng/Thiago
              LM : Eden Hazard
              CM : Yaya Toure, Fernandinho
              RM : Willian
              ST : Aguero, Costa
              I’m left with 2 options either use Thiago Silva with Mertesacker and Kompany, this will give me strong defensive line but at the loss of individual chem of Neuer, Mert and Silva or 2nd option to use Boateng with Mert and Kompany which will give me full individual chem but not strong enough defensive line as with Thiago Silva. Which of the option would u suggest, full individual chem or strong defensive line. TIA.

    64. Hi, I am getting 1.5 million coins soon and I was wonder whether this is a good team:
      Formation: 3,4,1,2
      GK:Courtois
      CB:Mertesacker, Kompany, Terry
      CM: Di Maria, Y.Toure
      LM: Hazard
      RM: Sanchez
      CAM: Aguero
      ST: Van Persie and Rooney or Falcao?

      If you think this is a good team, tell me but if you can think of any replacements I can make, tell me aswell! Also, I put Aguero at CAM so he could combine with Yaya Toure and Angel Di Maria and have a Man.UTD Strike force. Thanks.

      • Hi.
        Nice team but here are my considerations:
        – In a 3xx formation, you can only have one slow centre back: Terry or Mertesacker. And that one should play in the middle. You can try Koscielny for example.
        – You don’t need to have Aguero as a CAM because you already have individual chemistry 10 for all. I suggest to us Rooney as CAM and Aguero as ST. If you prefer other striker, you can also try Diego Costa.
        Regards

        • What position ge best fits in? He is got good defence, can shoot from distance, can pass and create chances, he is a completely best set piece taker in all aspects… 6 out of 10 times i score from free kicks using him..

          Btw thnx for quick reply.. It was my first question… I read almost all ur articles and like this website very much… Thnx in advance for this time too..

          Not kidding.. But u r better then ea customer support.. They should offer yoy salary for ur work…

          • Thank you.
            In my opinion he plays better as CM. His defensive stats are decent, not good. As CDM he is too far to the goal to use his long shot. Besides that, his stamina is not great, which is important to someone playing as CDM.
            Regards

        • De gea
          Walker
          Cahill, koscieliny
          Clichy
          Gerrard
          Willian
          Schurrle
          Juan mata (earler loic remy at this position by applying cam position, was very good and scored many goal leaving behind strikers)
          Balotelli, sturridge

          4-1-2-1-2

          Any more suggestions? I dont have much coins may be 20k i hav

    65. Hello rodriguez,
      I wanna ask you a question please :
      Yesterday i got neymar in a free pack and I can sell it , I have a bbva team including : David villa , Soldado , Isco , Hernandez , Callejon , Jese rodriguez , Fabio concentrao , Beto and of course some other gold defense players
      I am confused because my friends told me that i could sell neymar (for around 350k) and my team to buy a new bundesligua team because it’s cheaper than bbva and contains lot of good players , so my question is : what do you think should I do ? Could you please help me choosing wish league I should adopt ? And please could you give me a basic squad of that league for a budget of 350-400k ?
      Thank you very much 🙂

    66. hi rodrigo iv got your unlimited budget bpl squad but i dont really like the formation could you tell me a good team for the 4-3-3 attack formation i have around 2million coins

      • Hi. One important note: when we create an unlimited budget squad, the formation we use is not the one we think it is the best for that league and for those players. We use it because it is popular.
        You may try: Courtois, Walker, Koscielny, Kompany, Luiz, Touré, Di MAria, Ramires, Willian, Hazard and Aguero

    67. Hey there Rodrigo. I need your help, do take a look at my team.
      4-3-2-1
      De Gea
      Walker Cahill Koscielny Moreno
      Matic Fabregas Fernandinho
      Schurrle Sturridge Sanchez

      Bench:
      Ozil
      Benteke
      Mangala
      Rooney
      Remy
      Fellaini
      Walcott

      My team has been very prone to counter attacks. Usually opponents can easily pass my defense with simple one two touches or just shake my defense off easily with strikers like Lukaku charging forward. How should I improve my team?
      Please take a look at my sub bench too, and could you suggest me a formation to use so that I can get the best out of my team?
      Thank you.

        • Thanks for the advice. A few questions though.
          Who should I put as CM so as to improve my defense? Would Matic-Fernandinho pairing be good?
          Would Sanchez be effective at RM? Or should I replace him with Walcott, Sterling or Willian?
          Is it wise to replace Schurrle with Silva?

          • Matic plays better as CDM.
            Sanchez will be great as RM. Willian too.
            Silva is a great player but his stats are better to play as CAM or CM. Schurrle is much fastar and that is something important in FUT 15.

    68. Hi,
      I have Mata as cam in a 4-1-2-1-2 firmation with costa and remy in the front and schurle and wilian on the wings. I heard ozil is good but is it worth the coin to replace mata in my team?
      Thanks

    69. Hi Rodrigo,

      Fantastic guide as usual. Had a query for you, due to pack luck I am really lucky & coins isn’t a great issue. I’m unsure whether to go for Silva IF for the CAM position as a backup to Di Maria. Do you think this is a good idea or a waste and I should just go for Mata or even Rooney in that position. With not using Silva on the LM feel waste not having him in team. I like having a good full 22 players to rotate match about to avoid fitness cards.

      Regards

    70. Hi. I have a small question.

      I am using Ozil as a CAM in a 4231-2 formation. I now have enough coins to buy Di Maria. But is he a good choice worth his money? I do not want to risk my money by buying him. I feel that even if i buy him and if he does not play very good i will get a loss as prices are coming down very fast. In ios, in the last month, his price has gone down from 75-80k to just 65k now and i feel it will redice fast. Should i buy him? Hw good is his passing and dribbling? Will he play as a second striker or as a playmaker?

    71. What do you think what is better:BPL as one aquad and Bundesliga as second squad or just one of these two with subs?

    72. Hi Rodrigo,

      1st of all thanks for your guide and tips….

      Any comments for my squad using 433(4) formation:
      Begovic
      Baines,Koscielny,ventoghen,rafael

      eriksen,lukaku,willian

      subs:- mirallas,nasri,terry,mangala,wilshere,matic,bony

      i think my team lack of somthing but not sure what is it.

      • Hi!
        Only you may know what is missing. However, we suggest you to try Séamus Coleman and Ramires. Your CM’s are too attacking. You need someone like Ramires to help the back four. If you don’t have coins to him, try Matic, for example.

    73. Hi rodrigo,
      When is the time to sell our teams and make a cheap team because of the hugely decreasing prices? Mainly because of the release of the toty. Could you give me a date or month when the prices are gonna drop drastically?

    74. I have 50k but I do not know what to do with it. This is my team. Forwards: Eto, Dzeko, Vargas, and Bony. Midfield: Coutinho, Fernandinho, Eriksen, Wilshere, Valencia, Young. Defenders: Kolorav, Shaw, Terry, Skrtel, Miranda, David Luiz, Dante, Sagna, Debuchy. GK: Tim Howard, Diego Alves. Who should I buy?

    75. I have 50 k but I do not know what to do with it. My team is Forwards Eto, Dzeko(Vargas). Midfields: Erikson, coutinho (wilshere), fernandinho, Valencia. Defence Kolarov, Skrtel(Miranda), Terry(Godin), Sagna(Debuchy). GK Tim Howard(Diego Alves). Who should I buy?

    81. Hi rodrigo,
      First of all, great guide, it is very helpful. I built half of my squad following the guide.
      Secondly,
      I wanted some feedback and advice on my team if it is possible

      gk Heart

    83. Hi Rodrigo, nice guide as always. But we are missing the Serie A guide. Please publish that as well.
      One small question here how can I adjust Ballotelli in a 5-3-2 Serie A squad? Regards

    84. Hi Rodrigo,

      here are my BPL players:

      GK: Hart/Sczesny

      LB: Luis or Gibbs / Kolarov
      RB: Ivanovic/Sagna or Debuchy
      CDM: Matic or Ramsey or Arteta / Schnederlin
      LM: Nasri/Cazorla/Eriksen

      My question is can you help me for my first 11?
      and also for the striker is Falcao better than Rooney? or should I sell Falcao for Rooney or RVP is much better?

      Thank You So much

    85. Hey! Need some suggestions. Currently using 4-1-2-1-2
      GK Hart
      CB Rojo, Chiriches
      LB Jose Enrique
      RB Glen Johnson
      CDM Tiote
      RM Willian or Oxlade Chamberlain
      LM Erikssen or Young
      CAM Mata or Lallana
      ST Benteke, Lukaku, Soldado

      Can you suggenst any improvments within 20k price range? Also, which 2 ST to use as main pair? And what LM RM?

      • You could use Sandro or Fernando as CDMs as they have the hightest interception rate in the BPL and Medium/High workrates. I would try Jovetic as CDM, buy him als CF or convert him. Mata is good but is left footed and has no strong weak foot. I have tried Lukaku myself, he is very good. Benteke always seem to score against me.

    86. i want to buy a RM of at least 83 overall from any league in the budget of 15,000 coins can you suggest me some great RM of any league

    87. I’m using 4-5-1 tactic. CAM, CM,GK and LM already completed. Only def side and RM and ST still cannot make decisions to use a player. Need suggestion as list given below

      GK: De Gea
      LB: Kolarov
      CB: Terry & Koscienly
      RB: Zabaleta or Sana

      LM: Cazorla or Nasri
      CM: Fabregas
      RM:Navas or William

      CAM: Mata and Oscar
      ST: Dzeko or Remy or Benteke

    88. So I have van persie and falcao as striker and mata as CAM
      im using the formation 4312 and well im looking for 3 good CMs I cant buy yaya so thats out of the picture. Buy any other player is fine. Except di maria too. And I was wondering what CAMs preform well as CMs
      and keep up the good job!!

      • It depends if you want to attack or defend. I would choose Sandro, Fernando or Matic in the central CM spot that works like a CDM, due to their high interception rations. For the left and right CM spot you could use fast attacking CMs. I have good experiences with Cabella or Taarabt. A good idea would be too to use Mata as one of the two outside CM and buy Jovetic as a CF and let him play in the ZOM spot – he is a beast for me.

        • Yeah I seen people use jovetic and hes a beast. Will oscar preform well as a Cm?
          I have Fernando in the Central Cm position

    89. I currently have Koscielny and Rojo us cbs’s is mangla or Jan Vertonghen could be a better replacment for rojo?

      • You can check on different websites for their workrates, I advise using Low/High or Medium/High CBs, look for a higher defending attribute and pace. Your CBs are actually great, I don’t see sense in replacing Rojo with Vertonghen or Managala. I would stick with Koscielny and add Cahill or Kompany if you have the coins.

    90. Team looks nice. I am currently in div4, struggling a bit to get promoted this year. Any suggestions on my team? Playing 4-2-3-1, with very heavy focus on possession and waiting for space to open up.
      GK: IF De Gea
      LB: Filipe Luis
      CB: IF Reid (I like CBs with those workrates, and he seemed to be the best choice)
      CB: Koscielny
      RB: IF Ivanovic
      CDM L: Ramires
      CDM R: Yaya Toure
      CAM R: Ozil
      CAM Middle: IF David Silva
      CAM L: Di Maria
      ST: Van Persie

        • I see. Only reason I have Reid is because of he’s workrates. Ivanovic because I use instruction for fullbacks to stay back while attacking, and he got some pretty amazing defending stats. But, why not De Gea? He have amazing diving and reflexes? (Keep in mind that I do have a lot of coins after packing IF Neymar the first day of his TOTW, and thats where the coins to build this team comes from, so I have a few coins left after building this team and doing investments).

    91. Wright now I am playing your formation 4-1-2-1-2.First squad:IF De Gea
      Kompany,Koscielny,Walker,Filipe Luis
      Ramires,Alexis,Rooney,Willian,
      Costa,Sturridge.
      Second squad-same formation
      Hart
      Mangala,Cahill,Sagna,Moreno
      Matic,Sterling,Walcott,Oscar,Lukaku,Ahuero.What do you think

      Matic,Sterlimg,Walcott,Oscar
      Lukaku,Aguero.

    92. Rodrigo I have 110k.Should I buy RVP or Falcao or cm in my second squad?You know my team so which cm or which strikers

    93. Hi Rodrigo.I am playing 5-2-1-2.My second squad:Hart,Rojo,Mangala,IF Reid,Sagna,Moreno,Paulinho,Ramsey,Oscar,Vargas and Sturridge.Who should I buy.In first squad I have very good bpl plaers like Aguero,Costa…My second squad is awful.Pls help

    94. Hi Rodrigo,what do think who are the best bpl cm.P.s. I haven’t got money for Yaya and Ramires.Don’t forget if cards 😀 .Thanks 🙂

    95. Hi Rodrigo it’s me again.Sorry why I am asking you something all the time :D.I had balo and remy but somethimes balo plays well and sometimes remy.Now I have sturridge and eduardo vargas and they are quite good.Should I buy some other striker or invest in my cms and cam.Cm’s are paulinho and ramsey and cam is oscar.What do you think?.Many thanks again 😀

    96. Hi Rodrigo,
      I have a bpl team having a lot of the player from your 50K team but in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation.
      I have:
      Begovic
      Coleman, Terry, Onuoha, Gibbs
      Fernando
      Eriksen, Mirallas
      Coutinho
      Jovetic, Lukaku
      What do you suggest should be the next purchase to do ? Change my defense ?
      By the way I love your suggestion of Coutinho, he is amazing for me.
      Also I don’t really play online I mostly play offline.
      Thank you

      • Hi. Thank you.
        I should adapt our suggestions to your case. For example, playing offline is different from playing multiplayer and it may force you to choose another players.
        In my opinion, even in a 41212 which is a good formation to help the back four, your weakest position are the CB’s. My suggestion is to save your coins to buy Mangala or/and Koscielny. This should be your priority.

    97. Hi Rodrigo, love your guides. What do you think about 4-4-2 bpl team with unlim budget?
      Strikers: Aguero&Costa
      Wings: Hazard&Willian (Sanchez?)
      Defenders: like in your 4-1-2-1-2 guide
      Whatdo you think about cm? if Di Maria, if Silva, Toure, or maybe Magic&Fabregas?

      • Hi. Thank you.
        That’s almost our suggested team. So, it is easy to say that we love your team. I prefer Willian but it’s up to you.
        About CM’s NIF Di Maria and Touré are good enough and they play together. Don’t waste your coins in IF Di Maria. If you love players with good passing and ball control you can also try David Silva.
        Regards

    98. Hey,
      I have a squad that uses 2 cdm
      One of them is fernando. You said he is great at defense and he is. But i often se him running forward assisting my attackers. As the other cdm should i buy matic or ramires. I want a defensively solid team with good attack also. I can afford both of them. No problem of money
      I also want a cam. I play a short pass style game but sometimes use pace, especially as now i use coutinho but even if i find a gap with him he cannot outpace the defenders like my striker remy.
      My cam needs good passing and pace. Whom do you suggest?

    99. Hi,Rodrigo.I’m playing 4-3-3(4).My defense and midfield are good.I have aguero as striker and walcott and sterling as wingers.In my second squad i have diego costa as striker and I am playing same formation.Second squad is very bad.Do you think that I need to put costa in first squad and play with 2 strikers(aguero and costa) or something other.Thanks

    100. Hello I would like to know if balotelli is a good striker for Bpl team? Im a player who can’t afford players like RVP or Rooney yet. Thanks for ur opinion.

    101. Hello I would like to ask if balotelli is a good striker for players who can’t afford 70k for RVP or Rooney or Agustin? I have him on my team and don’t know if I should keep him? I need ur opinion! Thanks

    102. hi rodrigo. waiting for your laliga squad guide. i hve lost some coins. i just made my team with 79 overall. they all have good attributes. but for some time i left playing it. and now when i came back .the prices of my players have dropped by half.

    103. Hi Rodrigo, what would you say about my current team? Do you have any suggestions to improve it?

    104. Hi Rodrigo, I really want to have Alexis on my team, but it’s hard for me to save 65k to buy him… any tips so that I can get him easily?

    105. Hi rodrigo, I would like to share my experience with a number of bundesliga players, even though the guide is going to take a while, I hope that’s okay? And how do i do that?

    106. Thanks so much Rodrigo! I was just building my BPL team!
      I do have a small comment though about the “cheapest choice” striker. I’m playing for some time with Loic Remy as second striker next to Diego Costa and and in 59 games he scored 97 times. He has almost the same stats as Benteke, but is a lot faster. He just outruns every other defender and scores pretty easy. To me he is what Eto’o was in Fifa 14.

      • I agree with you about Remy being a great player. However he can not be the cheapest choice if his price is three to four times higher than the Benteke price. Beside that, pace is not the only difference. Benteke is much stronger and that is something really important too. Anyway, 97 goals is something amazing!

    107. If im losing or drawing I replace one of my striker with Lukaku and put him on ST position. He is fresh and opponent defender are tired and he got good chances to score. Joker is that I have hope on him and he is good for bench hahah.

      Begovic hmm I didn’t count him cuz I won to good games again him and Im a bit scared of Bego. But in skills he look good one

      • Thank you for clearing my doubt about the joker. I was ignorant about it as i never sub anyone in the fear of wasting contracts.

        About Begovic: It is not the keeper’s fault if u are too cool for him!

        Begovic’s stats are amazing for his price and also he is, in my opinion, the best value for money. He has saved some really important goals for me. (Even though he played only 10 matches.)
        You can get him for less than 3k or even 2k if u find a good bargain (like me… i got him for 1.6k using the 59th min. method)
        You can see that he is better than Howard at all important stats except positioning but only by 2 points. Also he is cheaper than Howard. You should just sell Howard and get Begovic. If you aren’t impressed just auction him. Many people are waiting for Asmir Begovic.

        I used De Gea for some matches but is is not much better than our 6’6 Bosnian. Also he is too expensive (13.5k > 3.4k any day!)

        In my opinion Begovic is the best keeper to use for a medium budget squad and also very cheap and reliable if you have quality CBs.

    108. Having a team with some good and normal players and I wanna share some of my stats and thoughts about some PL players. I tried alot of players but these are best fit player for my strategy 4 – 3 – 3 (3CM and LW-ST-RW)

      from DIV 10 to DIV 4.:::
      Here are my goal stats for players:
      Player: Sturridge
      Possition: LW
      games: 30
      Goals: 23

      comment: He is running good and his a good dribbler me scored 0.75% goals per match and he is a good assist player. Facing high PHY defenders was a bit problem for me cuz he was easy to be blocked. Facing low PAC defenders he is a beats.

      Player: Diego Costa
      Position: ST
      Games: 21
      Goals: 20

      He is best strikers till now comparing that I had before Falcao, Van Persie, Benteke, Lukaku, Dzeko or Crouch.
      He is strong with ball and you can pass defenders like Mangala or Koscielny easy. I never scored with him against Kompany till now. (Diego Costa vs Kompany 4 matches no goals for Costa).

      Player: Sanchez
      Position: RW
      Games: 30
      Goals: 6

      To me was not good player against PHY opponent, he is fast and good dribbler. Im using him for crossing and long ball/pass he is my best assist player in the team. Having a strong ST like Costa or Rooney it would be perfect pair for Sanchez. Recommended having him in your team

      CM: Disappointed on Fabregas and Ozil they are not good in counter attacks and in long shots. They can be good players to assist but not like playing Walcott in CM or Silva in CM cuz Walcott/Silca they can cross good pass good they are fast and they can score. Best CM for me is Yaya Toure compare with other CM.

      My best opponent player was Oscar he scored me in lots of games and he was good organiser to my opponent. I never had him on my team.

      Best deffenders: Koscielny, Cahill and Mangala others Bllek…
      Luis is good if your plying in wings but if you have faster wing opponent you should play Clichy
      I plaid only with Ivanovic in right deff. so I’m happy with him but he is a bit slower.

      I had only Tim Howard and GK he is not so good with 1vs1 but shots from distance and against crossing he is good.

      I play Lukaku as a joker and he scored 0.60% goals per game.

        • you r playing on ps or xbox. here is my username on ps. ermalberisha1 you can add me and we can play.

          Does someone have experience and will guid us for Loic Remy?

    109. Ola Rodrigo.

      I am planning to make a 4231(2) squad. I prefer a lot of pace, especially along the wings, but i usually dont cross high and play more controlled low short passes. But i wont compain if my striker wins the crosses sometimes make. Actually i cross about 40% of the time.I already formed half of my team. It has:

      GK begovic
      RB walker
      CB Mertesacker, koscielny.
      LB Clichy
      CDM fernando
      LM schurrle
      RM sterling

      Pls suggest players for Cdm, cam and St. I have 50k

      Also, what is the problem with sterling and schurrle? I feel that they wil suit my style of pace winging. Still i am ready to change them if you feel they are not upto the mark.

      • Hi.
        You haven’t asked but I prefer Mangala than Mertesacker. I know that you have a good formation and a fast CB next to the German player, but to me he is too slow.
        If you want a good defensive CDM, try Matic. Mata and Lukaku are good choices to the other two positions.
        If Sterling and Schurrle suit your play style, go ahead with them!

        • Dear Rodrigo,

          I tried with Mertesaker he is good against slow one and Falcao or Sturridge always beat him 1vs1 so its better playing Koscielny that Mert. even with Sakho my deff was better than with Metr.

          @Ahil
          Yep for Matic he is good but if you dont have money try Fernando (city cmd).

          • Thank you for you comments Rodrigo and ermal!

            Money is not a problem. I have now made 70k and think that i can make atleast around 3-4k everyday, even when i am busy.

            Rodrigo, thank you for your insight. I appreciate your comments about not only the positions i asked for but also the others.

            About mertesacker, why is pace needed for both defenders? Isnt mertesacker’s defense 82 higher than mangala’s 79? I really dont have a problem selling mertesacker but could you tell more about why this is your choice? I am not against ur opinions. I really love them. You were indeed right about the LM position and schurrle and I feel i cannot decide anything without playing using the player now.

            Can you also tell me why you prefer Mata and Lukaku over other players?

            I already have a CDM fernando who is defensively great! Who do you think should be the other CDM? Should he be more attacking like Ramires or defensive again like Matic? Not like i will run forward with my CDMs usually but you never know…!

            And now i realized that you were right about schurrle. He did not impress me as much as sterling especially in passing. Can you suggest any other LM who is even better and faster? I really love bursts of pace along the wings and eriksen’s 81 pace is just not fast enough.

            For further guides, i have a small suggestion. Is it possible for you to make the CM and CAM positions seperate. I understand that their roles are almost the same but sometimes CMs have to get defensive and need something like a med/med workrate and attributes compared to the more attack oriented CAM. Also, this allows us to get ur opinions about both positions separately, which will really be helpful.

            • Best LM player for BPL on the LM position is Hazard but also Schurrle is good one? Did you try with David Silva ? he is amazing also Nasri is good passer and dribbler.

              But wait maybe Rodrigo have better option

            • Ermal,

              Hopefully Rodrigo has a better option. Cuz Hazard is friggin’ EXPENSIVE!!!!!!
              Seriously, do you think i am able to make so much money in a matter of a few days?!?
              It is tough. I really am amazed that i made even the 70k that i now have!

              As i have mentioned, i need pace, so Silva and Nasri do not convince me.
              May be i will try to use Schurrle in more matches and get adapted to him. Bcoz i only played like 5 matches. Schurrle seems like the most fitting option for me, with decent stats but economical price.

            • Also, i dont know which to choose, mertesacker or mangala

              I consulted fut head:
              http://www.futhead.com/15/players/960/per-mertesacker/compare/14-1677/
              I am still confused.

              Mert is better in Defending, Defeder Rating, Marking, Heading, Short Passing, Slide and standing tackle, Strength, Interception, Positioning and vision.

              mangala is better in aggression, agility, balance, jumping, sprint speed, long pass, physical
              AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HE IS BETTER IN RODRIGO’S OPINION!!!!

              Helpeth me oh experts. And shedeth light on this ign’rance of mineth

            • Hi.
              You both almost have said all.
              Lukaku is great because he’s fast (something important in FIFA 15), has good shooting and he is really strong. He is also 4 star weak foot and has perfect work rates. Obviously there are better strikers for this price I can’t find.
              I recommend a slow CB is 5xx formations. In 4xx formations it is too dangerous. Try both players and you will see the difference between Mangala and Mertesacker.
              It’s up to you but usually in formations with two CDM’s, I like to play with a more offensive CDM. However, Ramires may be too expensive to you right now.
              About your suggestion, I appreciate it but the I can not extend the guide even more. I did it for CDM last year but I can not do it again because many people quit reading when they see a long post. If you have more suggestions, feel free to share with us.
              Regards

            • Ola,

              I am confused between ozil, mata and oscar for cam. I am using lukaku and remy for st in 41212 but i am going to play only lukaku as i am going to change to 4231-2. I feel i need good pace and shooting and passing.

    110. Well done again Rodrigo. I went into this expecting to have differing opinions but I think we are on the same wavelength; I couldn’t fault any of your choices. Clearly you have an understanding that face card stats do not fully show how good a player is, and this knowledge is important when picking the best from many good options (e.g Aguero is not the highest rated but is the best in game). However, I have found that many BPL teams I face are easy to defeat, often containing players not mentioned in this guide. Do you or anyone else reading this feel as though the BPL is weaker this year compared to previous FIFA’s? Certainly most keepers are quite poor, bar De Gea and Courtois. Also, it is extremely expensive compared to other leagues. However, top article Rodrigo 🙂

    111. leroy fer is a beast at cdm besides yaya i think hes the best one and hes not expensive. Great guide though I was interested to see the gk part I have begovic now and am not sure who to buy next.

    112. Thank you for the guide.. I need help in choosing the ST.. I am playing with 4-3-3 formation, and I have Hazard and Mirallas as wings so I need a good ST in passing specially through triangle.. I had Sturridge put he really was very bad in passing so I sold him and I was thinking of getting Falcao but you said he is not that well.. So, any suggestions for the ST?
      I have around 70K
      Thanks in advance..

        • Yes as you said I bought RVP and played 1 match with him.. He played very well and scored a goal, assist one and made Hazard the man of the match by his very good passes.. A lot of thanks to you, I really appreciate your help

      • A few mistakes london teams have won the league more than 3 times
        La liga is the most expensive league

        if it helps costas sprint speed is a good bit higher than his pace stat making him nearly as fast as aguero and vertonghen is the best cb to pair with kompany he has all the attributes and I haven’t had him caught out of position because of his work rate yet. And he then adds perfect chemistry to add walker in and you could have clichy on the other side of kompany. That being said Felipe luis is better all round

        • Hi.
          Maybe you are talking about English top division but we are talking about the new format Barclays Premier League that have started in 1992. Chelsea and Arsenal have three titles each one (see more here.)
          We are sorry to not agree with you again, but in our opinion BPL is the most expensive one. We know that Messi, Ronaldo, Bale and Luis Suárez are the most expensive players but most of the gamers can not afford them and for an average team BPL is much more expensive than BBVA.
          About the players obviously people have different opinions.

    113. Thanks a lot, i’ve been waiting for the guide for like ages!! Any predictions on when the prices will drop Rodrigo?
