Introduction to the FIFA 19 Premier League Squad Guide

OTHER LEAGUES 🇬🇧 🇪🇸 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 🇫🇷 🇵🇹

Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 19 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 19. 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. 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 19 Premier League squad. Even the players that have a EPL 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 and custom tactics 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 19 Ultimate Team is this: everyone has their personal club and players.

Remember that this year, we published separate Premier League guides for each position. You can visit them, clicking in the colourful links in the top of this page.

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:

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 qualities.

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.

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 Premier League and with their original attributes were considered.

In this guide we didn’t consider changes made on a players performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.

Over time, prices change. That’s why we added a link where you can check anytime the updated prices.


Premier League

FIFA 19 Premier League overview

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 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 six clubs. The dominant club is Manchester United, with a total of 13 titles. London’s teams together only won the league eight times while Manchester City won it three times. The outsiders Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City did it once.

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 FIFA 19 is played the most, the 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.

FIFA 19 Premier League Squad Suggestions

Ideas to help you building your FIFA 19 Premier League Squad

The team suggestions that follow are simple graphic indicators of the Premier League articles already published. 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, custom tactics, 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 medium budget and 4-4-2 with a low budget. Please, keep in mind that we are not saying that these are the best formations for this league. They are only generic formations to be used in all our squad guides.

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

De Gea is the natural choice to the goal. Now that Courtois has move to the Spanish league, no one can be compared to him.

Van Dijk, Azpilicueta and Walker are also easy choices to the defence. On the left side we picked Mendy, but we recognize that he hasn’t the same quality of the other ten players of this team. One of the options is to replace him by someone else with a lower chemistry. An Icon would be great but having Alba linking with Azpilicueta is also an option you should take into consideration.

We used this formation not because it is the best for this league but because it is the standard formation we use for unlimited budget squads of our guides. This means that we have only two spots for three players. Kante and Kevin De Bruyne are incredibly good, especially in their positions: CDM and CAM. If you don’t want to relegate Pogba to the bench, you should pick another formation.

If Hazard has his spot guaranteed every year, on the opposite side things are a bit different. Thankfully, Salah got a huge upgrade and gives the quality that was missing to this position.

Once again, one top quality striker have to go to the bench. In our opinion, Aguero and Lukaku are the perfect pair but if you love pace, maybe you will want to replace one of them by Aubameyang.

Once all the players reach maximum individual chemistry via loyalty (achieved by each player after 10 matches for your club or by being pack pulled) you can go without a manager for your squad. They’ll be of no use while wasting contracts.

The choices for this more affordable team players were based on the analysis made previously.

In goal, Lloris will keep your goal safe. If you think he is too expensive, then you can go with Ederson. Davinson Sánchez and Eric Bailly are both fast and solid defensively. Mendy is the only player who keeps his spot in this team. Ricardo Pereira’s assertiveness completes our defending foursome.

Fernandinho is perfect to play in the centre. He has the muscle that every midfield needs. Mkhitaryan and David Silva complete the midfield. Lucas and Felipe Anderson have guaranteed place in this team. Sterling and Martial are great but also too expensive to this squad.

Over the attack line, unless you need the 5 star skills of Zaha, Vardy is an excellent choice.

If you still have some room in your budget, Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, Dembélé, Mahrez and Martial are players that would improve this squad a lot.

The choice for this budget team was based on analysis published previously.

Rui Patrício is our choice for the goal. He was one of the good additions this year to the Premier League: a must buy for every low budget squad. Coleman, Rüdiger, John Stones and van Aanholt complete the defence.

In the midfield, Ndidi and Sissoko complement each other well. Both are strong players but while the first gives security to the back line, the second is a player that usually pushes forward to assist his colleagues. Izquierdo on the left (obviously!) and Pedro on the right fill the wings in order to assist Michail Antonio and King who have both been chosen for their combination of pace and finishing stats.

    Who shud be my next signings

  2. Hi Rodrigo, thanks for your response on the other page. As a result of rivals rewards I managed to pack a few good additions so now my team is:
    Valencia Sokratis Bailly Shaw
    Mkhitaryan Kovacic
    Shaqiri Firmono Sane

    Lloris, Valencia an Mkhi are untradeables. I play either a 433-2 or 4231-2 and have about 120k.

    1. In what order should i upgrade? LB, CDM or RW first? They all are doing an ok job so far so not sure which one to upgrade, if any.
    2. I packed sane, should i keep or sell. Im having fun with him but i have felipe anderson as well who i like also, so wondering if i should sell sane to get other quality players. Do you feel the drop in quality between sane and felipe is big?

    many thanks!

    • Hi.
      1) If you feel OK, then you don’t have to upgrade any of them. Probably with a few more games you will identify who is the weakest one.
      2) Yes, the difference between them is big. If you want to have fun, keep with Sané. If you want to make coins, sell him. His price will drop a lot in 1.5 months.

  3. Hi Rodrigo excellent guide as usual. My updated team is
    Gk Lloris Ederson
