FUT 13 Barclays Premier League Squad

Barclays Premier League Squad Guide for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team


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


Building a FIFA 13 Ultimate Team Barclays PL Squad


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

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

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

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


Barclays Premier League and FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Let’s get going!


Barclays Premier League’s Goalkeepers (GK)

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

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


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


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

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


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


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

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


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

Jamal Blackman 195 England Chelsea

Eirik Holmen Johansen 194 Norway Manchester City
Luke Daniels 193 England West Bromwich Albion


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

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

Premier League’s Centre Backs (CB)


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

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


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


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

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


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


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

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


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


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

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


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


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

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

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


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

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


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

Danny Simpson 76 England Newcastle United
Andy Wilkinson 74 England Stoke City
Phil Neville 74 England Everton
Tony Hibbert 74 England Everton

Àngel Rangel 73 Spain Swansea City


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


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


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

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

Zdenek Grygera 75 Czech Republic Fulham


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

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


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

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

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


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

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


Kyle Walker 91 England Tottenham Hotspur
Glen Johnson 87 England Liverpool
Maicon 85 Brazil Manchester City
Rafael 84 Brazil Manchester United
Micah Richards 82 England Manchester City
Azpilicueta 80 Spain Chelsea
José Bosingwa 80 Portugal Queens Park Rangers

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


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

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

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


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

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


David Silva 88 Spain Manchester City

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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

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


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

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


Antonio Valencia 83 Ecuador Manchester United

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


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

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


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

Kerim Frei 86 Turkey Fulham
Yassine El Ghanassy 85 Belgium West Bromwich Albion


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Five Barclays Premiere League’s (English League) wingers with the best overalls in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


Premier League’s Attackers (CF e ST)


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

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


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


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

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


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


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

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


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


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

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


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


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

Barclays PL Gold Squads Suggestions for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team


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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

    • Hey what do you think about this team specially about my two strikers
      de gea
      glenn johnson, agger, vwermaelen, evra
      valencia mata nani
      RVP Podolski

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

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

        Starting 11
        De Gea

        Robin Van Persie


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

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

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

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

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

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

    • how about my team
      joe hart

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

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

          regards 😛

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

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

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

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

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

    I also have a BPL team but the lines are orange

    My team

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

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

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

    Brilliant guide by the way has helped me loads 🙂

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

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

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

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

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

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

    For- (I Change These Out All The Time) Remi, Dzeko, Forlan, And Defoe… Thanks:)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    can u please set up a team for me?

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

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

    de gea

    sagna koscielny skrtel ivanovic

    walcott cabaye parker young

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

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

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


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

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

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

    Im currently playing with

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

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

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

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

  26. Hi guys,

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

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

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

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

    Thanks in advance.

  27. Hi guys.
    Here is my squad

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

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

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

    David Luiz Kompany Vermaelen
    Valencia Tiote Ramires Hazzard
    Hernandez Podolski

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    GK: De Gea

    LB & RB: A. Cole – Walker

    CB’s: Kaboul – M’Bia

    CM’s: Touré – Scholes – Wilshere

    LW & RW: Hazard – Walcott

    ST: Van Persie

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Formation: 3-4-2-1

    Adebayor Walcott

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

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

    Formation 4-3-3

    Richards Luiz Terry A.Cole

    D. Silva Ramires Oscar

    Hulk Pato Robinho

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  39. I play on 4321
    Any attacking players to improve on?
    What would change two be
    Who’s got tips about getting more money
    For ultimate team
    How can you get more coins for ultimate team I’m nearly broke

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Thanks a lot guys.

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

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

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

  43. Any suggestions to improve my 3-5-2 Bpl team

    Cahill Mbia Smalling
    Arteta Tiote
    Johnson Young
    Giroud Bent

    I would like to improve my attack and defence for cheap. I have 20k left.
    My midfield feels very strong specially the tiote and arteta partnership with tiotes strength and artetas passing and creativity

    • Hi.
      It depends of your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best for us could be the worse for you.
      In the attack, you could give a look to Cissé if you like fast players.
      In the defense, the weakest position in our opinion, you can give a try to Jan Vertonghen, Michael Dawson or David Luiz.
      The goalkeeper can be improved too, even with a low budget. Julio Cesar is a good choice but Wojciech Szczesny is also better than Vorm, in our opinion.

      • Hey,
        I have been looking at podolski as a striker to partner bent. In the defence jan vertonghen is appealing to me as i would like to avoid taking a non-rare(luiz) and in the goalkeeper spot i would keep as a third priority and improve according to the coins i have left after improving the attack and defence. Any ways to make coins faster and is opening packs worth it?

  44. Hi, I play a 4-2-3-1 formation andhere is my team, just wondering if you could give me some improvements!
    GK – Lloris
    RB – Sagna
    CB – Kompany
    CB – Agger
    LB – A.Cole
    CDM – Yaya Toure
    CDM – Ramires
    CAM – David silva
    CAM – Nasri
    CF – Suarez
    ST – V.Persie
    Also i have 650k spare so any suggestions will work?

    • Hi. We were upgrading our servers. Sorry for the delayed answer.
      You have almost the perfect BPL team.
      Our suggestions are the same that we showed in this article: you can buy Rooney to CAM, Vidic to CB (only if you don’t care about pace on the defender), Maicon to RB, Aguero to ST moving RVP to CAM.
      But, if you really want to make great improvements on this team, you need to buy IF’s (we do not recommend it because it is an expensive solution) or to transform your BPL team on a Hybrid one. You can take some ideas with our MY FUT 13 squad.

  45. I have a 4-1-2-1-2 Liga BBVA

    Gk: Valdez
    RB: Juanfran
    CB: Pepe
    LB: Jordi Alba
    CDM: Xabi Alonso
    CAM: Fabregas
    ST: Falcao
    ST: Benzema/Callejon

    This team cost me around 200-220 K, I just wanted to know what you think i can do with around that many coins. Like if i could make a more efficient/ better overall squad.


    • Hi.
      It depends of your formation, your style of play, your budget, your preferences, etc… The best for us can be the worse for you.
      You can try: Hart, Kompany, Vermaelen, Sagna, Ashley Cole, Ramires (or Mata or Nasri), David Silva, Toure, Aguero (or Rooney), Tévez and RVP

  46. Hi, I was pretty lost in ultimate team until I found this guide which I’ve been following very closely. Only difference really is I’m using 4-5-1. This is my team so far:
    GK: Lloris
    RB: Maicon RCB: Kompany LCB: Vidic LB: Cole
    CM: Yaya Toure
    RM: Valencia LM: Hazard
    CAM: Rooney CAM: David Silva
    ST: Aguero
    I have no problem making money and I was wondering if u have any suggestions for improvements or other players to buy e.t.c. One person commented that Hazard is wasted as a LM so should I sell him and get Bale? Also should I replace Aguero with RVP or switch Aguero and RVP? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance!

    • Hi. Sorry for the delayed answer. We were moving our server.
      We do not have many tips for you since you already have a fantastic team, as you know.
      Vidic is a great great defender but some people dislike him since he is a bit slow.
      The advice about Hazard makes sense. Some people prefer Hazard, and others prefer Bale. Bale is a bit more faster and it makes all the difference for some players. It can be your case.
      If you have enough coins, you should try to keep with Aguero and with RVP. For us, Aguero is better but RVP is also a wonderful player.
      If you have more coins and what to make great improvements, you can try the IF’s cards (very expensive) or transform your team in a hybrid one.

      • Thanks for replying as soon as you could. If I make a hybrid squad I’ll probably mix BPL and BBVA but I was wondering if there is a guide on here about making hybrid squads like this one? If not would you mind suggesting who I should replace with who?

  47. I decided a 3-5-2 formation so I could have a stronger attacking side of play, but here is my best team (87 rated):
    ST: RVP, Aguero
    CAM: Rooney
    LM: Bale
    RM: Hazard, I put him because he is significantly better than Valencia
    CDM: David Silva, Yaya Toure
    CB: Vidic, Kompany and inform Agger

    what do you guys think?
    I have no players on the bench rated under 86 either

    • Hi.
      Wonderful team you have.If you want to keep it as a BPL squad, there’s no much to improve.
      You enjoyed specially the Hazard as RM. Doing that you can keep with a Chemistry of 100 and have a better solution for the right side of the midfield.
      Now you only have two ways: buying IF players as Bale IF (very expensive solution!!!) or transforming your team on a hybrid one.

  48. Hi I was looking for some tips on improving my 4-2-2-2 team.

    GK: De Gea
    CB: Ferdinand
    CB: Vermaleon
    RB: Sagna
    LB: Evra
    CDM: Fellaini
    CDM: Wilshere
    CB: Ruiz
    CB: Kagawa
    ST: Podolski
    ST: Balotelli

    I have 50k coins and have no idea where to spend them, Ruiz is really good but the pace lets him down so I would want someone with equal stats but a better pace. I don’t think my CMs are too strong either. Any help much appreciated 🙂

  49. I know this is way down the comment lost and I will post my team pick tomorrow because I added gotze and rues to my “chelsea/Tottenham” team. I have four other teams and I love 4-2-3-1 so I wanted to give some advice I have learned. If you have good CDM/cm use this formation but they have to have high works rates each way in order to get the most out of them. The cf acts like a second striker and when u attack bring one of the two cam into the middle to control the play with the CDM that steps up. My teams wouldn’t work in other formations because of who the players are and how I play. I suggest playing the leagues on world class or legendary to test your teams before going online and if u have questions just test it offline. Also to help new people remember that forward isn’t the only way forward in FIFA. U can pass vertically and backwards or just hold up the play while the comp makes runs. The best players don’t make the best team. Long winded but here is my team: cech cole terry Kabul ivanovic Fellani Ramires gotze rues mata Torres. Kabul and cole have the speed to help the back line while Fellani wins the headers and Ramires does everything else. My front four only attack so I don’t need my fullbacks for that. I don’t like my lack of height up front so I use lewandowski sometimes although it drops my chemistry to 95

    • Hi Timothy.
      Thanks for your advice. It will be helpful for a lot of players, we hope.
      “The best players don’t make the best team”. It’s true. When we see a superb team on the pre-match screen we already know that we will have a chance of winning the match.

  50. Hi, I have a 4-2-2-2 EPL side, I have 70k budget and my team goes like this:
    GK: Hart
    RB: Sagna
    CB: Kompany
    CB: Koscielny
    LB: Evra
    CDM: Ramires
    CDM: Garcia
    CAM: Nasri
    CAM: Mata
    ST: Aguero
    ST: Balotelli

    I think my CDM’s are my weakest positions, and I was thinking about getting Yaya Toure? What do you guys think?

    • Hi.
      It depends of many things: your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best for us can be the worse for you.
      You nailed it! Replacing Garcia by Toure will be the best improvement that you can do and you have enough budget for it.
      The next step will be buying David Silva for Mata or Nasri place…

    • Hey if i were you i would definitely get toure cos i hav him and hes a beast but afterwards swap vermaelen with koscielny cos he is cheap, works well with kompany and hes a great player

  51. I have gervinho as LF at the moment but I’d like to change him. Who would you recommend as a replacement? My budget will be around 15k but can be more.

  52. Hi guys,

    I have a 433 squad atm

    Sagna Kompany Vermaelen Evra
    Silva Toure Kagawa
    Walcott Balotelli Hazard

    Any suggestions for improvements? For 50K or so?

  53. Hi, I’ve swapped Podolski with Mirallas on my 4-2-2-2 team as I now have an Arsenal team, wondering if Mirallas is the best choice to have next to Mario Balloteli, I don’t have much money after buying formation cards for the Arsenal team so is Mirallas the best choice to have?

    • It depends. We think you can put a better player than Mirallas next to Balotelli. But it’s up to you. You should try him in some match and see what’s happen. The best way to see if a player fits on our team is to try him. He is really fast but his heading is weak and he isn’t strong in finishing.

  54. hi, i have these team: (4-4-2)
    gk: julio cesar,
    defend: ivanovich,vermaelen, lescott,jose enrique
    mid: a.young, fellaini,m.arteta, valencia
    for: chicharito, podolski

    bench: milner,johnson, dzeko, diego milito, ben arfa, koscienly AND n zogbia.

    its okay my team, should i change anyone ( sorry about my english).?

    • Hi!
      You already have a nice BPL squad for a balanced budget.
      We can’t advice well because it depends of your budget, your style of play, your preferences, etc… The best to us can be the worse to you.
      You can take a look at Ramires to Fellaini place. To make more improvements you will need more coins…

      • wll i actually have 58k thats why i dont know what improvements to make, i think i will buy hart, but im not sure what do you recomend me? or should i buy santi cazorla? thanks

  55. Hi I love this guide, it is really helpful and I’ve been following it pretty closely except I am using a 4 5 1 formation. I have no problems making money so pretty much an unlimited budget and I was wondering what improvements u could suggest for this team I have at the moment:
    GK: Lloris
    RB: Maicon RCB: Kompany LCB: Vidic LB: Cole
    CM: Yaya Toure
    RM: Valencia LM: Hazard
    CAM: Rooney CAM: David Silva
    ST: Aguero
    Is there any improvements you would suggest? Also someone said Hazard is wasted as a left mid so should I replace him with Bale, would he be better? Should I swap Rooney and Aguero or replace either of them with RVP or someone else? Would Hart be a better keeper than Lloris because of hes taller?

    • I know your’e very busy and stuff but would you mind replying soon because I want to make changes sooner rather than later…

      • Hi AlexB.
        We already answered you. Try scroll up, please.
        Usually we answer in less than 24 hours. Between 30th December and 01st January, we were moving our servers. That’s why you maybe didn’t see our answer (different DNS’s).
        And yes, we still prefer Lloris to Hart. If you have more questions, please ask us.

  56. Hey i have a 41212 bpl squad and I have 200k to spend, what should i do?
    GK: lloris
    CB: vermaelan
    CB: kompany
    LB: cole
    RB: maicon
    CDM: yaya toure
    LM: Bale
    RM: valencia
    CAM: nasri
    ST: aguero
    ST: van persie

    • Hi!
      It depends of your style of play and your preferences. The best players to us can be the worse to you.
      You already have a top BPL squad.
      You can improve it with:
      1) Some better players, like David Silva to Nasri place or Rooney to RVP place;
      2) Some IF players, like IF Bale or IF Kompany;
      3) Transforming your BPL squad on a hybrid one.

      The first one is the easiest, the second is too expensive and the third is the best one.

  57. Hello Again! bin a long time since last time i wrote, but this time i really need your opinon, My Team : 4-4-2


    G.Bale—Y. Youre——S,Nasri——-A.Valencia

    What do u recomend should be my next transfer?
    Price dont mather i saving until i get the player i want 🙂
    M.Richards i great in that position 80 pace and u allways meet speedy forwards, Lloris? is it so big difference? most of the goals are one on one goals.

    Best Regards Hank

    • Hi again Henke.
      We researched your questions and it seems that we forgot to answer you to the last one. Sorry about that.
      About your nice 4-4-2 squad:
      1) Moving M. Richards to CB seems to be a good option if he keeps the 9 chemistry (he keeps?) since BPL CB’s are not the best BPL players.
      2) Hart vs Lloris. Lloris is better than Hart. No question about that. He is better in almost every attributes. Specially in reflexes and diving, the two most important. The question is: Lloris worth paying the double ? It’s up to you.
      3) You already have a very nice team. It depends of many factors as your play style, your preferences, etc… In our opinion, the next transfer should be David Silva to Nasri place, and then Aguero or Rooney. You also can try buying Hazard to RM and keeping Bale as LM.
      Best Regards

      • About M.Richards, he has 7 in chemistry dos it effect much?
        M.Richards as a CB is genius in my opinon, good pace good defense and good header.

        bought D,Silva yesterday so next step are a forward next to tevez?
        or should my priorty be Lloris first?

        • Sorry for the delayed answer.
          Every players should have 9 in individual chemistry. If you have 7 it means that he will no play everything he knows, affecting specially the non-physical attributes. But it is still a good option.
          In our opinion a ST should be the next buy.

  58. Hey I just wanted an opinion on my squad. I have a 4-3-3
    Gk- Reina
    LB- Cole
    ST- RVP

    • Hi. Cool team.
      You already have a very nice team. To improve it you will need more coins: Aguero, Rooney, etc.
      To us the weakest player is Valencia. If you buy Aguero to ST, you can Replace Valencia by Di Maria. It will not affect your chemistry too much since he has only two links.

  59. Hi, I play with a 4-2-3-1 formation, my team:Cole-terry-agger-ivanovic. cdm:tiote-parker. cam:david silva,mata. cf:suarez. st:van persie i feel that david silva is so slow in his position(RAM) and i cant find a replacment for him as he is the best cam in the premier league. which player should I buy? best regards:Sherif

    • Hi. For us he is the best CAM of BPL even being slower than some other players. No one is better than him. His ball control is the best of entire FUT 13.
      If you wanna find a replacement for him you can try Rooney in that position. If you don’t have money for Rooney, you can try Tévez or even RVP and Tévez as ST.

    • i can also do vermaelen and m’bia. Im on a budget because i have fellaini, toure, silva, torres, RVP, nasri, and Hart in goal. Just want to know what best combination should be.

  60. Hi. I have 37k and a Premier Leauge Team. I don’t know who to buy. Here’s my team: (4-3-2-1)
    Walker DavidLuiz Mbia Clichy
    Ramires Tiote Nasri
    Walcott Bale

    Which player should I buy?

    • Hi.
      It depends of your play style, your preferences, etc. The best player to us can be the worse to you.
      You will need money to improve that team because you already have a good team. With some more coins you can buy one of the three players: Touré, David Silva or RVP (or Tévez) . They are our choices to replace some not stronger players.

  61. How about this team with 5-2-1-2?
    ST:Dzeko and Adebayor
    CM:Sahin and Scholes
    CB:Agger,Lescott, and Ferdinand
    GK:Reina or Cesar

    Any changes you would make? Also what GK would you play? Thanks for your help and having such a great website.

    • Hi Cody.
      As you know, our suggestions depend of your style of play, your preferences and, of course, your budget.
      Reina seems a bit better than Cesar. But if money is really important to you, there is no big difference between both.
      You already have a nice team for a small budget. In order to build a better team, you will need to collect some more coins. It’s not so difficult.

  62. My team


    Aguero Messi
    Bale Hazard
    Gerrard Toure
    Kompany Vidic Valmaren

    I feel it was worth the chemistry drop to play hazard out of position rather than Walcott or Valencia. No-one is meantioning Tevez here. I think he is far superior to Silva. I really didnt like Silva. Aguero can be frustrating too but I have to have him so Messi can fit in!

    What do you guys think? Would you change anything. I won the 1st division in straight games with a spanish league team but struggle to survive relegation with this team!

    • Hi.
      You have a fantastic team (and very expensive too) but it’s not good if you got best results with a weaker one.
      We really like Tevez. But we prefer David Silva. Everyone is different!
      Placing Hazard on the right seems to be a good move. You are not the first doing this.
      If you dislike Aguero, you can try Higuain. He link well with Messi and Tévez. We don’t recommend this because we are Aguero fans…
      If it was our team, we will sell Messi and use that money to get more good players.

  63. I need to know what other center back to get for my barclays team, i have David Luiz, Richards, Clichy, and 15k left

  64. I want your opinion on my team. Any advice on changes would be greatly appreciated. I have premier league team with 5-2-1-2
    GK:Reina or Cesar(who would you choose)
    CM:Sahin and Scholes
    ST:Dzeko and Adebayor
    Thanks for your help.

  65. 1.how much does shay given sell for ?
    2. how much does gouffran sell for ?
    3. suggestions for a 4-4-2 polish/prem/bundesliga team with a limit to 30k

    thanks in advance

  66. Hey guys i have one question i play a 4-3-1-2 and my team is as follows
    even with this team i usually find myself losing every 7 out of 10 games in division 1 online. Now i believe i am an average player but with this team it makes no sense to me that i am losing this much. Just wondering if you guys have any suggestions or tips.

    • Hi.
      Having a great team as you have is good but also bad. It’s good because we play with the better players and have more chances to win. It’s bad because we get upset everytime we loose with a weaker opponent. It happens with us, too.
      You have almost the perfect BPL team, so there’s no much to improve. But you need to buy a GK. 🙂
      Well, what we can say about it ?!
      First, Vidic is a great great player. But he is not the right guy to everyone. If you attack constantly, Vidic is to slow for counter-attacks. Verify if it happens to you.
      Secondly, did you tried every single formation before building this team? If you are a average player and you have a fantastic team, maybe the problem could be the formation. 4-3-1-2 is suitable for those who like to play through the middle. If you concend many goals, you need to do something about it. Maybe changing to a formation with 5 defenses or, at least, with one CDM to cover the CB’s.

  67. Hello guys, i’m trying to construct a very good EPL side, at the moment i’m playin a 4-2-2-2 with:

    GK: lloris
    RB: Maicon
    CB : Vidic
    CB: Kompany
    LB: Clichy

    CDM: IF Fellaini
    CDM: Yaya Toure

    CAM: Santi Carzola
    CAM: David Silva

    ST: Podolski
    ST: RVP

    I had rooney and torres in place of RVP before and neither of them scored many goals, RVP has done good for me so far, i persume my weakest area is carzola-podolski? But i’ve had them both since day one and i’m kind of hanging onto the arsenal link and they’ve both scored loads and podolskis shooting and carzola’s 5 star weak foot to cut inside with. Any idea? Cheers.

    • Very nice team.
      We agree with you. Carzola-Podolski are your weakest area. But if you want to keep them, it’s up to you.
      Aguero was a good option to Podolski place.
      If you already tried Rooney and you didn’t like him, the only option is to transform your team into a hybrid one. See here our hybrid BPL-BBVA squad.

  68. hi i was wondering if you could suggest any players for my team?

    i have
    GK: Cech
    LB; Ashley Cole
    CB: Koscielny/Ferdinand
    RB: Richards

    CM: Gerrard

    RW: Walcott
    ST: Rooney

    SUBS: Julio Cesar/Sturridge/Walker/Van Persie/David Luiz/Ben Arfa/ Clichy

    • Hi Elliott.
      It depends of your style of play, your preferences and, of course, your budget. The best players for us can be the worse for you.
      If you have some coins to invest, David Silva and Touré might be great improvements since your midfield seems to us the weakest area. It’s a shame to have RVP on the bench. If you don’t need him, you can sell him and buy one of the two suggestions.

  69. hey guys! great tips on the bpl squad.

    i have a few questions for you guys.

    currently i run a 4-2-3-1 with
    tevez, podolski -cams
    toure, fellani- cdm
    clichy, vermaelen, terry sagna

    my bench has bent, hernandez (one of my favs for speed), valencia, david luis, enrique, richards, tiote, and i recently got neur in a pack.

    i am considering my next moves and am thinking about aguero as a st, david silva as a cam and kompany as a cb. Who do you think I should go after first?

    Also i was considering converting my team to a 4-1-2-1-2 hybrid team with adding defenders from the liga bbva, who do you think would be the best fit with my current players? and do you think switching to the 41212 over the 4231 would be a smart move?

    sorry for all the questions

    • Hi.
      Fist of all, it’s nice to have you here with us.
      You have a good squad which can be improved. And you are thinking well. Aguero, David Silva and Kompany are the right guys for you. In our opinon Kompany is cheaper, so should be the first one. Then Aguero and finally David Silva.
      Making a hybrid with BBVA defenders are a very good move. Who can fit? Depends of your budget. If you have money, Casillas, Pepe and Sergio Ramos. If you buy these three players you will keep a high chemistry. Take a look to our hybrid squad.
      About the formation, it’s up to you. You should choose what you like more. Take a look here.

  70. Hi. I have 21k and pretty much just started fut. obviously I have a low budget as I haven’t got any gold players. Could you give me some players that are cheap but efficient? I was thinking about this team.
    4 1 2 1 2-Begovic zabaleta shawcross jagelika Enrique Barry Lennon n zogbia Ramirez p.cisse/ba fletcher/graham
    Many thanks
    Sorry other email was wrong

    • Hi.
      With 21k you already can build a decent BPL team.
      The team that you are thinking seems to be ok but for that budget you can build something similar to team that we suggested in this article:

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

  71. Since toty came out so reduces prices on some huge players, for example, D.Silva. he goes for 35-40k now! so my question to you. Do you think the new cheap prices going to stay or will they rise again?

    I bought namely Mata, Silva and a few others and struggle with on selling them now :/
    so do you think I should wait a week or two? or prices will always be so low?

  72. Hi, my current squad is
    De gea, agger, vermalaen, Ferdinand, young, Valencia, cazorla, gerrard, Walcott, giovinco, podolski and my formation is 3-4-3, can you give some feedbacks to improve my squad? Thx

    • Hi.
      It depends of your style of play, your preferences and, of course, your budget. The best for us can be the worse for you.
      The first thing is Giovinco. In this team he has bad chemistry, so you should find a replacement.
      We recommend also some defensive midfielders, as Ramires, since yours are all midfielders with high attacking work rate.
      If you have enough money, try Kompany, Toure, David Silva and/or Tévez.

  73. Hi I am just asking at the moment I have a terrible team well it is ok I have RSVP nano if dezko hart and cole but I am playing a 442 formation and I don’t know who to play in the other postitions if you have any ideas please tell me

  74. 4-4-2

    G.Johnson D.Luiz Y.Kaboul G.Clichy

    T.Walcott C.Tiotè Y.Tourè G.Bale
    Chicharito ( Inform) F.Torres
    Hi guys! what do u think of these players?
    Iv tried with D.Silva, are there any beter players for counter attacking fotball?
    *iv noticed that 7 of 10 goals i conceeded where through balls, thats way the speedy back 4, are there better players to defend against that, i think I have the best? I tried with kompany and Vermalen but they have no chance against trough balls.

    Midfield are rather defensiv but i cant play with D.silva 🙁 tried 100 times, (have S.Gerrard on the Bench)

    Attack : Chicharito fantastico ! but torres?? who would u buy?

    can u help me?

    priority 1 i think is a striker
    and please do not recomend D.Silva, everbody els but him :p
    have 150k

    Best Regards BenHen1

    • Hi.
      You already have the best GK of BPL.
      About the defense, if your problem is the counter attacks, Kompany should be the right man to join to David Luiz. If you didn’t like him, you need to go outside of BPL. But it will a bit tricky to keep the chemistry high. Our advice: since your GK have a hiper link with the CB, both don’t need any more link to get 9 chemistry. So, you can buy Pepe to CB, Joao Pereira to RB, Di Maria to RM and Aguero to ST. And you have enough coins to do it. You will not get chemistry 9 to all of them but you you will fix the CB problem, the ST problem and the RM problem (Walcott is fast but not fantastic as Di Maria). And you will love Joao Pereira. If you don’t like David Silva, try Nasri.He is much faster.
      Please, give us feedback.

  75. Hey guys, just one quick question. I play a 4-1-2-1-2 and i dont believe that valencia is of high enough caliber to play on my BPL team. I was just wondering if you guys think that mata would be a good substitution even though he is a center mid.
    Also money and chemistry is not an issue
    Also i was just thining maybe Bale for valencia could be a good replacement. SO just wondering what your opinion is . Valencia Mata or Bale at rm

    • We agree with you. Valencia is not a top player to a BPL squad. The RM positon is possibly the weakest on BPL. If money isn’t a problem, Mata IF is the best solution. He was released as RM. Bale is also a nice option but it willl be very difficult to keep him with individual chemistry 9. Another option is to convert yout squad in a Hybrid BPL/BBVA team. Check it here how to do it.
      Our coice goes to Bale. He is very nice player and he isn’t so expensive as Mata IF.

    • Sorry Daniel, but we answer here in order to anyone can know what we answer to your question.
      With a budget of 260k you can make this BPL squad:
      Hart-Kompany-Vermaelen-Sagna-Ashley Cole-Toure-David Silva-Hazard-Bale(RM)-Tévez-RVP

  76. i have a 4-4-1-1 formation
    ad my team is

    do u hav any suggestions on how i can improve my squad

    • Hi.
      As you know, it depends of your style of play, your budget and your preferences.
      In our opinion you have a good team. We know that Ivanovic defends better but we prefer Sagna. We think that your midfielders have a low defensive work rate. Putting Toure on Mata pace seems to us a very good improvement. Valencia is either a great great player but on BPL the RM’s are not so good as LM’s. You can play with Bale on the right if you want. Finally, we don’t like Torres. Tévez and Van Persie are much better.
      But it is only our opinion.

  77. Hi i play a formation of 4-3-1-2 my team is ;

    GK – Cech
    LB – A.Cole
    RB – Sagna
    CB – Terry
    CB – Ferdinand
    CM – Mata
    CM – Toure
    CM – Nasri
    CF – Suarez
    ST – Van Persie
    ST – Tevez

    Have you got any suggestions to improve my squad i do have like 100K for extra players.

    • Hi.
      Our suggestions depend of your preferences, your style of play, etc… The best player for us can be the worse for you.
      Almost everything seems OK to us. But we think that your CB’s are a bit slow. If you have that money, Kompany will be a great improvement to stop the counter attacks.
      Did you tried David Silva as CM ? We think that he can replace Nasri or Mata (keep with Toure on your team because he helps the defenders).

  78. I currently play 4-4-1-1
    I have
    Sagna, Kompany, Vidic, Cole
    Hazard, Touré, Silva, Nani
    Van Persie

    I obviously want to get Maicon and Lloris to finish off the squad, but this guide helped a lot in building the squad up after getting the squad for lower budgets, thanks guys

  79. Hi, im asking who i should replace at cb for agger on my bpl team. Maybe IF koscielny? And also at lb for Jose Enrique, prefer pace as #1 attribute for my wingbacks. My team is a 4231
    Bale silva mata
    Toure fellaini
    Enrique kompany agger Johnson

  80. I have a prem team which constists of
    St rodalegga
    Lf hazzard
    Rf ? Every rf is not very good
    Cm mata nasri
    Rwb maicon
    Cb kaboul vamallen kompany
    Lwb cole
    Gk cech
    I play 5 2 2 1 and looking really for some better players in cm and rf and st any ideas to suit this formation

    • Hi.
      It depends of many things as your preferences, your style of play and, of course, your budget. The best players for us can be the worse for you.
      Analysing your team, it’s obvious that you need some improvements to RF, ST and maybe CM.
      You can try Tévez or RVP as ST. David Silva is a great player and he can play as CM. Toure is also one of our favorites but, if you think that you don’t need any more player with high defensive work rate, you should keep with Mata or Nasri.
      As RF you can try to adapt a CF/ST to that position. If you have enough coins you can put Aguero as ST and Tévez as RF. Both will keep a high chemistry.

  81. hi my team is 4-3-3
    GK. J hart
    Def. evra, vermaelen/terry/agger/ hangerland, sangna
    Mid. nasri/rodwell/silva/ cozorla
    lw. hazard/ oxalade
    rw. sturridge/ walcott
    st. van persie/ defoe.

    i like dribbling and shooting and i also like long range shooting. i know rodwell isnt the highest rated player but i think he is one of my best. he is the player i have scored the most goals with

    any suggestions for improvements?

    • Hi. You forgot to say to us what is your budget.
      If you have coins, Kompany will be a great improvement to your team. Also, we think that if you like dribbling, you will love Tévez. He is better than Defoe for sure.
      If these players are too expensive to you, why no try Ramires to give a help to the defenders? If Hazard is not as you expected, you can try Bale and save some coins.
      Anyway, nice team.

  82. i am looking to improve my prem team but unsure who to buy?
    GK: de gea
    CB: lescott, Jones
    RB: Sagna LB:IF kolorov
    CDM: Wilshire
    RM: Valencia LM: Bale
    CAM: Kagawa
    ST: Van Persie ST: Podolski

  83. Hey guys just one quick question, i have david silva playing cam for me in a 4-1-2-1-2 and i get he is a good player and all but what i find to be his downfall is his pace… he is constantly getting run off the ball due to his speed. Just wondering if you guys have any suggestions for who may be a better replacement, i was thinking maybe podalski or fernando torres.
    also money and chemistry is not an issue

    • Hi.
      David Silva is fantastic but he is not a fast player. Totally agree. He fits perfect in many formations but, in 4-1-2-1-2, the CAM plays far away from the other players (in 4-2-2, for example, David Silva as CM has the company of other CM).
      If money isn’t a problem, you can try many good players like Tévez or Aguero. We know that you have Aguero as ST, but you can buy RVP or Rooney (what happens to yours?) for that place. Podolski and Torres are not our favourites…

  84. Hi again. I’m going to build my u.t on Friday and I was just thinking about the rm position. As you already have recalled, I have a low budget and I am thinking of a rm who is fairly quick and decent overall. Any suggestions ?
    I think the rm position is one of the hardest to find a decent player that is quick and cheap

    • Hi again.
      It is absolutely true: rm position is one of the hardest to find a decent BPL player.
      Valencia is good and is under 4k. If you can not afford him right now, you can try Aaron Lennon or, even better and cheaper, Adam Johnson.
      If you want someone more cheap, try Jermaine Pennant. We played with him and we loved him.

  85. Also, would you think dzeko will be able to play cf behind Defoe? That’s the strike force I’m thinking about. I might as well show you my full team I will probably use.
    GK: Júlio César 3k
    CB: Michael Dawson 1k
    CB: Jan Vertonghen 3k (or else Phil Jagielka 1.6k)
    RB: Azpelicueta 2k
    LB: Leighton Baines 4k)
    CM: Yohan Cabaye 0.5k
    CM: Abou Diaby 0.5k
    RM: Pennant or Lennon
    LM: Matthew Etherington 0.5k (or else Steven Pienaar 0.5k)
    CF: Edin Dzeko 4k
    ST: Defoe 2k


  86. Do you guys plan on doing this same of list for the Bundesliga or Serie A? Although it might have not been your intention, this list and the list on La Liga BBVA helped me build a great silver team (Thank You!). After youve played with every player in most formations, the next step in FUT is to get good with a silver squad.

    • Great! It’s good to know that we helped you.
      When we published the BBVA and BPL guide, our intention was to publish more 5 or 6 guides. Unfortunately, we had no time enough to do it. But we still thinking publish some more guides. Bundesliga and Serie A are in our list.
      And yes, there are many people that love to build silver squads after playing with most of gold teams.

  87. i have formation 4-5-1

    my team is as follows:
    richards/terry/m’bia (i like the pace)/santon
    toure (cm)
    taarabt/cazorla (cam)

    im try to go for the best team i can. what couple of players should i get next?! thankss

  88. Hello ! thx for the tips about some new player, heres a rewiew:

    J.PERIRA – decent just like G-Johnson but i understand why you recomend him, because of pepe and maria.

    A.MARIA – i dont know how to play with him, he just a man i in the squad, nothing special with him? or how should i play with him?

    S.NASRI – very nice player ! nothing to say about him

    S.AGUERO – wonderboy

    PEPE – Great defender, decent pace

    thx for the tips !
    anyways i sold IF chicharito and bought in M.Reus – two words, outstanding and cheap.
    so my Current squad:

    G.Clichy Vincent Kompany Pepe J.Pereria
    G.Bale Y.Touè C.Tiotè A.Maria
    M.Reus & S.Aguero

    (Nasri on the bench, jumps in every match thats are tied in 60 minutes or when i need to score goals.)

    and now what? :p i A.Maria works fine but he is not at treat.
    then i wondered, Maicon? but the chemistry will go down then, because of Pepe and A.Maria.

    On paper its either G.Clichy or J,Pereria, but i think its rather, J.Periera or A.Maria?

    Best Regard

    • Hi.
      We can give you a different suggestion. Try to play with Navas instead of Di Maria. If you didn’t like Di Maria you can try the spanish. He is very good to run into the area box. He is very very fast. With him you can stand with Pepe and João Pereira. They are all very cheap. The BPL players are too expensive.

      • yea thinking of J.Navas, but gonna try with A.Maria a little bit longer, the fact that he is left footed on a right posistion makes it interesting 🙂
        + he is just a little bit better on defending.
        Im pretty happy with my team and thx for the help!
        My long term goal now?
        i prefer to save up coins for one big star, Hazard maybe? and G.Bale as RM?
        only got 30k but I earn money pretty fast

        • We still don’t understand how M. Reus link with the others. He has no connections. We know that you already have chemistry 100 but it is important to have good individual chemistry. In fact, it is more important.
          You should save for Rooney or RVP.

          • hi , i was only tempted to try Reus with hes speed and shooting. and it went good, 9 games 9 goals but om gonna sell him anyways, to much red lines.
            wasted som of my money so gonna go back to square “one”
            Clichy kompany Pepe .Pereria
            Bale Toure Tiote Walcott
            Aguero & and the new player… Rooney :p

  89. Hmmm, guess my phone decide to eat half of my comment 🙂
    What I ment to ask :
    In a 4411 , getting Van Persie and Hernandez , who would you play as st and who as cf , and why ?
    Never understood the difference …
    Thanks !

  90. I have a 5-2-2-1 squad ( I’m shocking at defending and overcompensate) with :
    GK – Lloris
    RWB – Sagna
    CB – Agger
    CB – Kompany
    CB – Terry
    CM -Toure
    CM- Silva
    LF – Bale
    RF – Valencia
    ST – Rooney

    I don’t have an unlimited budget but have Rvp,tevez, carzola, mata, ferdinand, hart, evra, whom i could sell as use them occasionally to keep the fitness up and would like to improve my team. From what i have and with about 60,000 plus the players to spend what would you to improve the squad ? I use pace and crossing when attacking and strength in numbers defending.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated thanks


    • Hi Patrick.
      You gave us enough details to help you.
      First of all: why do you spend coins on fitness cards ? Our advice is to have two good teams. When one plays, the other rest. We never spend coins in any consumable card (except contracts). You will see that you can save a lot.
      About your team, there’s no much to say. You already have our BPL dreamteam. Almost…
      We don’t love Valencia but you don’t have any RM/RW/RF better on BPL. And if you love pace, you love him for sure.
      We don’t love that formation either because Aguero, Hazard and other good players don’t fit on it. But we understand why you chose it: fast RB/LB to cross, good defense and wide attack.
      You can not improve much more this formation without going to IF players which we don’t recommend. They are too expensive. Try to improve your bench in order to have a rotation system or migrate to a hybrid squad.

      • Thanks for the help.

        I put a second team together and being an Everton fan couldnt help but get Felliaini IF but my first team as it were is only an 5 rated team, how would you go about improving the rating and seprately is Maicon were the money ?

        Thanks Patrick

  91. I know this is off topic but i have a Brazilian squad
    Gk . Manuel Neuer
    Lb. marcelo
    Cbs . Déde and felipe santana
    rb. danilo
    Cms. Lucas , Ramires and Carlos Eduardo

    rf. hulk

    i run a 4-3-2-1 formation and have had my share of ups and downs with this team and wanted to know if i should resell and go for a bpl team or la ligaments team. This team is great but very weak when attacking because they lack a physical presence when attacking and surprisingly defense has poor man marking which makes it difficult on neuer soo was wonering if i should go with a la liga
    La liga team or a bpl team unless you have suggestions in helping my team unless

    • You have a very nice brazilian team.
      If you want to move, try BBVA. BPL is too expensive.
      You should know that you will spend more coins to have a BBVA team as good as the one you have right now. The difference is that with La Liga team, you can always improve because there are more quality players.

  92. Hi guys,

    Thanks for the great guide.
    I have a BPL squad in 4-3-3 formation. Like to play down the flanks, cross or cut in.
    My team:

    De Gea

    I have about 70k in the bank. Also thinking about selling Silva as he as not as good for me as he expensive. Where should I spend the money on upgrades? ST, LW, CM, CB, GK?


    • Hi.
      You have a nice team that can be improved.
      For us, Arteta, Young, Walcott and Hernandez are the weakest players.
      If you don’t like Silva, you can sell him. Your new budget will be something like 120k plus the money of some other sells. With that money you can buy Tévez, Bale, Valencia, Touré and Mata (or Nasri).
      If you love to play down the flanks, Bale is a must have. Tévez is better than Hernandez and he is not slow. Touré is one our favourites. He defends and attacks.

  93. Hey, very interesting and nice written, I have this squad:



    Sagna Vermaelen Kompany Cole

    Mata Silva


    Aguero’ Van Persie

    Any suggestions how I can improve my squad, I know that Maicon would be nice but I’ve reached my budget… So like I said my team I have know is my budget, and I like teams on FUT that have a mix of speed, passing and quality, and I also love strikers who has a great sense of scoring.
    THX in advance

    • Hi.
      We don’t have much to say since you already have probably the best BPL team you can afford.
      Lloris is better than Hart but he not worth so many more coins.
      The defenders are all OK. Strikers too. The only thing we don’t have sure is Mata. If you liked, keep with him. If you don’t, you have another players to that position. Nasri is one of them. But there are people who use Tévez in that position.
      Best regards.

  94. HI
    st: balotelli, podolski
    LM: ashley young CM: David Silva (changed position from CAM to CM), Juan Mata RM: Valencia
    RB: Evra CB: Terry, Ferdinand RB: Sagna
    GK: Hart.
    84 squad rating. 100 chemistry. all players at 9 chemistry. Idk what else i can change since I’m on low on budget but my next target is Nani. any suggestions?

  95. I have my team:
    Young Lennon

    And I was wondering what I should do to upgrade the team. Should I sell Torres and buy Suarez?

    • Hi.
      Nice team. In our view, the weakest points are:
      1) Slow CB’s
      One of them should be faster.
      2) CDM
      You should save to buy Ramires. He is much better.
      You can do better than changing Torres by Suarez: sell Torres and buy Tévez. But it is only our opinion…

    • Hi.
      We think that you are talking about “Barclays Premier League Squad for FIFA 13 Ultimate Team with an Unlimited Budget”. We never build this entire team. But we bought almost every player of that team. Our team is this.
      We build our squad very early and the prices are now much more accessible.
      We pay something like: Lloris 60k, Vidic 105k, Kompany 55k, Maicon 50k *, Ashley Cole 20k, Touré 50k, David Silva 70k, Valencia 10k *, Hazard 110k, Rooney 150k, Aguero 150k. * are players that we didn’t buy.

  96. Awesome site! Props..
    And a question ofcourse =). I have ’bout 100k to improve my team.
    Hernandez Torres

    young cazorla fellaini valencia

    evra vermaelen verthongen richards

    Was thinking about gettin Aguero for those coins to accompany Torres, or replace the cm’s with Touré and Silva/Nasri and get Balotelli/Tevez to accompany Torres.
    Wich on to go with? Or is there something else i should spend it on??


  97. what do you think of this team:

    GK: De Gea
    LB: Geal Clichy
    CB: Lescot
    CB: Smalling
    RB: Rafeal
    CDM: Ya Ya Toure
    LM: Young
    CAM: Kagawa
    RM: Valencia
    ST: RV Percie
    ST: carlos Teves

    any improvements for a low budget
    i tend to play down the wings and cut in or pass through into the middle.

    • Hi.
      You have a good team.
      The attack is very good. If you get some more coins, you can try to buy David Silva to Kagawa place. Since you said you play down the wings, it shouldn’t be a priority.
      We don’t have any improvement for a low budget because you already have want you want: LB/RB with high pace, RM/LM with high pace too, Touré to give defensive support to CB’s and top strikers.
      Good games!

  98. what do you think of my prem team trying o keep it English but 2 foreign players had to be included

    gk -hart
    def-walker,ferdinand,terry,a.cole(also have company and Richards but like walkers pace)
    mid-hazard,lampard,gerrard,walcott(also have mata,cazorla,david silva,wilsher,young and Valencia for backup)
    forwards-rooney,aguero(also have dzecko,hernndez,bent,defoe)

    • Hi.
      You have a nice squad but we have to make you a question: is it so important to keep English players on the 11? We are asking this because we love some of the players of your bench. More than some of the 11.
      Kompany is a good example. You already justify that pace is not the more important. In that case, Rio and Terry are OK as CB’s.
      Keeping David Silva on the bench is a bit more difficult to understand. It’s up to you, of course, we think that he is much better than Lampard and Gerrard. If you are concending many goals, Touré could be a good option.
      But the more important is how you play with these players. If you are winning, you don’t have to change anything.
      Good games!

  99. what improvements could i make for my team but only problem i have is making coins
    Formation 442
    GK- Reina
    CB- Terry, Ferdinand
    RB- Sagna
    LB- Cole
    CM- Lampard, Tiote
    LM- Young
    RM- Valencia
    ST- Van Persie, Dzeko
    and subs
    Evra, Agger, Wilshere, Hernandes, Sahin, Ba, Arfa and Vorm

  100. My team right now is (4-1-2-1-2)

    Van Persie – Hernandez
    Bale – – Valencia
    Evra – Agger – Ferdinand – Richards

    Who do you suggest that I get first to be the biggest benefit to the team?

    • Hi.
      In our opinion Toure would be the more important improvement on your team. And we explain why. You don’t have fast CB’s and a good CDM with high defensive work rate, as Touré, will help them. In other hand, he will make your team more compact, helping Mata and others.
      Mata and Hernandez could be the next to be replaced. Maybe by Silva and Tevez…

      • ^^

        My team is now

        Hernandez – RVP
        Hazard – – Valencia
        Y. Toure
        Cole – Ferdinand – Kompany – Richards

        I have about 140K to spend, so who do you suggest?

        • Great improvements.
          Besides Touré, Kompany was a great buy. Now you have a fast defence.
          You bought Hazard too but it is stange to have a player as Bale on the bench. If you sold him, it’s OK. But if you still have him, you can try to put him on Valencia place.
          With 140k to spend you can try to buy Silva and Aguero to Mata and Hernandez place. What a team!

  101. Hi !
    I have a rather odd question.
    This mite bee a silly question but I just cant get i out of my head.

    Scott Parker VS Yaya Tourè

    An easy choice for 9 of 10 players.
    But recently I tought i through and i just gotta ask u guys. is it in my head that I play better with Parker then Yaya? can a 82 overall beat a 86 overall?
    maybe ha think to much when i have the ball with Yaya, he has much much better stats than parker.
    Understand the question?, is it possible that Parker are better for me??? :S
    (in a 4-4-2 formation)

    // confused swedish-fifa-player )

    • Hi swedish FIFA player! There are so many FIFA players on Sweden.
      The answer is yes. When we suggest players, we always say that the best player to us can be the worst to you. And you confirm us.
      For example. On FUT 12 we played better with Lavezzi IF than with Ronaldo. The overall is only a number.

      • hmm, It feels so wrong to sell BPL best defensive middfielder for S.Parker but S.Parker allways delivers in right time for me. well will try it, as same as , “D.Silva VS S.Gerrard”, Gerrard outstanding specially with parker. and when i play with D.Silva i loose every game. even tho you have the best players its not a guareente to win and performe good. Heres my “new” squad then

        Ivanovic Vidic Kompany Evra

        Walcot S.Gerrard S.Parker G.Bale
        S.Aguero Chicarito

        next man in line? Maicon maybe?
        i prefer walcott instead of valencia,
        150k budget.

  102. My Team is (4-1-2-1-2)

    Aguero – – Van Persie
    Hazard – – Valencia
    Y. Toure
    A. Cole – Ferdinand – Kompany – Ivanovic

    I’ve got about 180k to spend, who should I look to go for next?

  103. i’ve got 35,00 coins now, what should i invest in?

    GK: De Gea
    RB: Rafeal
    LB: Clichy
    CB: Lesscot, Smalling
    CDM: Ya Ya Toure
    RM: Valencia
    LM: Young
    CAM: Nasri
    ST: Teves, RV persie

    I play possession football and play down the wings.
    Who should i buy or should i sell 1 of my 11 to raise more coins to buy better players? Any Tips.

    • The best players for us can be the worst for you.
      You have a balanced team.
      You can take a look to Nani, Hart or David Silva. In our opinion, the LM should be the priority number one. But only you, analysing your matches, can say if this is true .

  104. Hi, I was wondering what the best formation is. My current is 4-2-2-2 but I struggle to make crosses and I can never pass too great.

    I was also looking for improvements on my team.

    GK: De Gea
    LB: Cole
    CB: Terry
    CB: Lescott
    RB: M. Richards
    CDM: Gerrard
    CDM: Fellaini
    CAM: Nasri
    CAM: Cazorla/Sessegnon
    ST: RVP
    ST: Torres

    I’m happy with De Gea, I’ve had over 100 matches with no problems but I do intend to buy Hart soon.

    Are there any tips apart from adding Arsenal players since they are in my 4-3-3 arsenal squad. Also I can never seem to score with rvp, I try switching the st positions but Torres usually gets the goal or Balotelli when I bring him on… Sessegnon gets more goals than van Persie!

    • Hi.
      We don’t know your budget but Kompany would be a good improvement to your defence.
      About RVP, if you can’t score with him, sell him and buy another one (Tevez for example). There are no best players. There are players that suit better on our teams.
      In our opinion Touré to DCM should be the great improvement to your team. And if you love ball control, David Silva can be the right choice to Nasri place for only more 10k coins.

      There are better formations than 4-2-2-2 to crosses. 4-4-2 and 4-1-2-1-2 are good examples.

      • Thank you for the quick reply.
        Another question, if I were to buy Toure who should I put on the bench, Fellaini with a great heading and decent pace or Gerrard with all around good stats but not a great stamina?

        The same question with Kompany, Terry has amazing defence & header but Lescott has a better attack.

        By the way do you know of any great ways to make coins fast?

        • Hi.
          It is your decision. We think that Toure can replace Gerrard and Kompany can replace Lescott. Why? Because Toure defends well but also attacks very well and because it isn’t very important that a CB attacks well.
          The best way to make coins is to make trading.

  105. Hello,
    First I have to say, this is a great site! It helped me a lot! Keep up the good work!

    Next, I would like some suggestions, because I struggle with making the decisions to buy some players in addition to this 4-1-2-1-2 squad:

    GK: Lloris
    RB: Maicon
    CB: Kompany
    CB: Vermaelen
    LB: Cole
    CDM: Y. Touré
    RM: Valencia
    LM: Hazard
    CAM: David Silva
    ST: Tevez
    ST: Aguero

    Bench: Courtois (GK), Diakité (CB), Tioté (CDM), Nani (RM), Donovan (LM), Nasri (CAM), Defoe (ST), Kolarov (LB), Konko (RB)

    Now my questions:
    Diakité –> Vidic, Kaboul or Luiz. I see Vidic has 89, but he hasn’t got the pace & that’s what worries me. Your opinion?
    Nani –> Bale? and put Nani as RM? Or should I buy Walcott as RM?
    Donovan –> Walcott? (see previous question)
    Kolarov –> Clichy or Evra? I kinda like the pace of clichy but the overall stats of Evra are better..
    Konko –> Richards?
    Defoe –> Balotelli?

    I struggle with making the decision between pace and overall stats..
    Thx for helping me out!

    • Hi. Thanks.
      It is a difficult decision: pace vs overall stats.
      The answers to your questions:
      1) We bought Vidic to our team but we already sold him. He is very good defence. The best one. But he is slow and we conceded many goals for him. Kaboul seems a good option. The BPL don’t have high quality CB’s in our opinion.
      2) It is important to have good individual chemistry, 9 if possible. But for this position maybe it’s better to put a good player out of position, as Bale, than keeping with a ordinary player as Walcott. If you get 7 with Bale (try with Nani) as RM, you should try that option.
      3) Walcott to the bench can be a good option. Not for the 11.
      4) In our opinion, Clichy. We have Ashley Cole, that is the LB with best overall in FUT 13, and Clichy. And we can say that is not a easy choice.
      5) Richards and Balotelli seems ok to the bench.

      About your team:
      We noted that you are making one great thing: you improve your bench instead doing that to your first 11. It is very important because you will be able to rest some players when others are playing. This is a very smart option.
      About your team, you have almost the perfect BPL team. RM is the weakest position. Rooney are the only good player that you don’t have.

      • It’s amazing you keep answering so fast to all these questions, not only mine. Just amazing..

        Owh well, that solved a lot of questions for me.. Now I’ll buy Clichy, Balotelli and Kaboul.

        But you say I should put Bale as RM. On SoFIFA, his card says RM isn’t one of his favourite positions. Does this matter? Does he still play good as RM? Moreover, Nani’s card says RM is his second favorite position. And if you should choose between Nani and Bale for RM, which one would you choose?
        On the bench for RM, you say Walcott, so you state he’s better than Valencia?

        Next.. I forgot to mention Kyle Walker for RB. So I still have to choose between Walker and Richards. If no other players are on the team (so just looking at the player himself), which one would you choose?
        If I look to the whole team, I have Kompany so Richards would be better.. On the other hand, I could have Kaboul (Spurs) and Bale (Spurs), so that links better with Walker.. Oh I hate these tough decisions 😀 Thank God I found this site.

        I think the same way about the bench. I try to keep my players 90+ fitness. If they drop lower, I swap them with my bench. But is that a wise decision? Shouldn’t I buy Rare Bronze Fitness (+10) cards, so I can play with my best squad every time. Or do you think this is a waste?


        • Owh and I forgot another thing.. You say the only good player I don’t have is Rooney.. But I wonder why everybody says he’s so good. The 78 pace as an ST bothers me. Now I have Tevez which has 84 pace. Is this a big difference? Isn’t Rooney to slow? I think Kompany, Kaboul, M’Bia, Vermaelen and lot’s of LB and RB can catch him easily. Moreover, Tevez has a great shot as well ..
          So my question is: should I buy Rooney, or should I buy Balotelli? I like the pace in front, but I know from experience a long distance shot fits my play good as well..
          Thanks for answering

        • Hi.
          Forget SoFIFA. Seriously. In FUT 13 it doesn’t work like that. All the players that are LM, as Nani and Bale, have the same second position and third position. It is false that Nani plays better than Bale on right side. It is a very complex subject that we will explain better very clearly on our chemistry guide that we will publish very soon.
          If is is matter? Yes. Instead having Bale or Nani with individual chemistry 9, they will have 7 or 6, depending of their links. We think that is better a Bale with 7 than Walcott with 9. But it’s up to you.
          Richard defends well and Kyle is faster. You should decide what is more important to you. About their links, we think both will get 9 individual chemistry. If it happens, it is the same to put one or other.
          Finally: It is a waste. Don’t spend money on training cards.

  106. After a busy weekend of trading on UT my team is now: (4-1-2-1-2)
    ST: Aguero – – – – ST: Van Persie
    CAM: Silva
    LM: Hazard – – – – RM: Valencia
    CDM: Y. Toure
    LB: A. Cole – – CB: Vidic – – CB: Kompany – – RB: Maicon
    GK: Lloris

    I’m very happy with this team so thank you! I finally won the Gold Cup with it 😀

    But my question is why do you prefer Rooney to Van Persie?

  107. Hi guys, I have a 4-2-2-2 formation of Barclays players currently. Would like to improve it with only 7k in the bank. What players and for what price should I sell and who should I buy? Thanks! Or should I start over? Am willing to do that
    De Gea (GK)
    Gibbs / Kolarov (LB) Terry / Ferdinand (CB) Ivanovic / Johnson (RB)
    Podolski / Gerrard / Lampard (CAM)
    Parker / Scholes (CDM)
    Bent / Defoe / Walcott (ST)

    • Who are the best CDM in BPL? Also, how do you convert a ST to CAM? Or, is there another player that you would buy, use consumables, and concert to a CDM? If so who would that be.

  108. I have 7k in the bank, looking to either improve my team or start over. What are your thoughts?
    GK: De Gea
    LB: Gibbs
    CB: Ferdinand
    CB: Terry
    RB: Ivanovic
    CDM: Vidal
    CDM: Scott Parker
    CAM: Podolski
    CAM: Gerrard
    ST: Defoe
    ST: Hernandez

  109. 4-1-2-1-2

    What do u think of this:


    Clichy KOmpany Vermalen Maicon

    G.Bale Yaya Toure Walcott P.Scholes
    Loric Remy S.Aguero

    P.Scholes has the best passing skills in whole BLP? thats why him.
    the speedy backline for defend at counter attacks.
    Walcott and bale for the speed.

    / The Swede

  110. 4-3-3
    Ivanovic, Kompany, Vermaelen, Gibbs
    Cazorla, Toure, Mata
    Valencia, Aguero, Hazard
    Reina, Walker, Baines, Agger, Distin, Wilshere, Fellaini, Ramires, Ben Arfa, Oxlade-Chamerblain, Hernandez, P. Cisse
    I like to rotate my squad so a strong 22 is required. Was wondering where you think who I should buy next to strengthen. Coins aren’t a big issue though a maximum of around 60k is best.
    PS I am very happy with LW of Hazard and the Ox, despite his low stats (compared to others) I work really well with the OX.

    • Hi.
      “I like to rotate my squad so a strong 22 is required” – Very good decision.
      Our suggestions depend of many things: your preferences, your style of play, etc..
      In our opinion, you should have a better LB (Cole, Clichy or Evra). Also, David Silva can be a good improvement in your midfield. These are the two main problems of your squad. But you have a good team, with a fantastic ST.

      • Thanks for the advice
        I like to play down the wings and crossing but I find my midfield key to set up with through balls and late runs. Think I will go for Silva and remove Wilshere (he doesn’t have the shooting capabilities I require). Also who do you think is best between Evra and Cole, don’t know whether Cole is worth the extra 10,000 coins or so.
        Aguero is the best striker in Prem in game in my opinion. Has a fantasic all round game that I require from a striker in my team, recommend him as a must buy

        • Not everyone love Silva but we think that you will like him.
          Evra vs Cole ? It’s a good question. But we think that there is a better one: Evra vs Cole vs Clichy. It isn’t easy to say which one is better. We need to play with the three to decide.
          And yes, we love Aguero too.

  111. Hi,
    What formation would you suggest and what type of players (Fast, good shot etc.) would you suggest for a crossing and thru ball type team? thanks guys
    Hi. I like to do long through balls, and cross the ball a lot. What formation is cheap and fits my needs?

  112. In a 4-2-2-2, what do you think the value of this team is, and where could it see improvements? Also, starting 11? Not sure who to start.
    Terry, Gerrard, Ferdinand, Lampard, Podolski, Sessegnon, Bent, Hernandez, Parker, Ivanovic, Ba, Walcott, Defoe, Johnson, Welbeck, Kolarov, Gibbs
    sorry for the second question of the day. It’s a big help though

      • Sorry, my preference/ play style is fast pace with thru balls in the middle of the field. I just sold two players and now have 23k with Ferdinand, Lampard, Podolski, Sessegnon, Bent, Hernandez, Parker, Ivanovic, Ba, Walcott, Defoe, Johnson, Welbeck, Kolarov, Gibbs in a 4-2-2-2. In your opinion should I use my 23k to make some additions, or continue selling the team and start over? I am willing to start over.

        • Hi.
          Nobody likes to start over again. But, sometimes, when you have no idea how to improve your team, it may be a good decision.
          It will be easier to do it. You will be able to buy the players you want, with the correct positions and formations. Take a look to our 25k budget team, and to teams of other comments. There are many good ideas here.
          Best Regards.

  113. i need you suggestion to improve my squad
    Formation : 4-1-2-12
    GK : Hart
    LB : Jose Enrique
    CB : Lesscot, Ferdinand
    RB : Richards
    CDM : Parker
    LM : A Young
    RM : A Lennon
    CAM : Lampard
    ST : RVP , Tevez

    • Hi.
      We will try to help but it would be better if you gave us more details as your budget, your preferences and your style of play.
      We love the GK and the ST’s but you can improve a bit the others positions. For us, the most important is to replace Parker by Touré. You will see that he is worth every coin. And he plays on a very important position.
      All other improvements will cost you many coins. So, this is the only improvement that we think that you should do as soon as possible.
      Best Regards

  114. Hi, i need some advices here please (sorry for a possible bad english)
    it’s important to say i’m noob in FUT and i started only 3 days ago. I don know what to buy and i don’t know if my team is good, or what can i do to make it better with good cheap players.
    I play with a 4-3-3 with:

    De gea
    Glen johnson – Cahill – Smalling – Gibbs
    Barry – Scholes – Wilshere
    Sturridge – Berbatov – Chamberlein

    i think i have troubles with my midcamp or not? what can i buy? i like keeping the ball to the box or keeping the ball in my mid camp waiting for a space to make a “deep ground pass”. and i rarely shoot from outside the box. the formation is good? i think it’s a good idea playing with a 4-4-2 too, which is better in your opinion? That’s all, i aprecciate your answer. Bye.
    PS: i don’t have any money xD. it will be great if you can give some advices to earn more.

    • Hi!
      Until now we understood everything that people with “bad english” said.
      If you are starting FUT we can advice you: it is a bit more complex that most people think. You should read our articles. We explain almost everything, including how to earn coins, chemistry, etc…
      About the formation, you should try to take a look to our formations guide. 4-4-2 is better for who is starting but if you feel comfortable with 4-3-3 go ahead. It is important to try some formations before choosing one but it also important to take this decision quickly because you will need to apply formations cards to your players (or buy them with the right formation) and changing it cost you a lots of coins.
      About your team, we prefer Dzeko or Cisse to ST. Berbatov is a bit slow and on FUT 13, as you will discover, pace is very very important.
      If you decide to try 4-4-2, take a look to Jermaine Pennant and to Matthew Etherington. They are really cheap players that we enjoyed.

      • Great, thanks, i’m thinking in change to 4-4-2. if that’s the case, may i use:

        De gea
        Glen johnson – Cahill – Smalling – Gibbs
        Pennant – Scholes?? – Barry?? – Etherington
        Dzeko – Cissé

        or sturridge for 1 of them, or to the bench with chamberlein?
        other thing, is my defense all right? D: which cheap player do you recomend to replace Cahill or Smalling?
        I have wilshere too
        that’s all. thank you.

  115. Hi, thoughts on the differences between Balotelli and Defoe?
    Defoe has 84 pace, 83 shot, and 79 dribbling
    Balotelli has 84 pace, 82 shot, and 84 dribbling.
    Is it really worth the extra 12,000 for balotelli?

    Also, I play a 4-2-2-2 and have these strikers. If I were to buy Balotelli, who should I replace him with?
    I start:
    Defoe + Hernandez and have Welbeck, Cisse, and Bent on the bench. thoughts? Plus, can I make Balotelli a CAM?

    • Hi.
      You can’t compare two players only by their six basic attributes. There are more than 30 others items to compare. For example: Balotelli has 4 star weak foot and 4 star skills and Defoe has 3 star for both. Defoe has better defensive work rate. Balotelli has more 22 points on Strength. And so on.
      The important when you are choosing a player is to decide which is the most important to you: pace, star skills, shoot, work rate, stamina, etc…
      For us, Balotelli is better.You can make Balotelli a cAM applying him a ST-CF card and then a CF-CAM card.

      • How can I see those other skill levels? Also, if I put Balotelli on the left striker position although it is still called “Striker” will that change any of his skills?

          • So the 6 attributes or skills that are shown are essentially the most important though? Also by 4 star skills do you mean skills that you can do by pressing multiple buttons at once or are they just easy to do skills?
            so how do you convert a CAM to ST?

          • Hi, Bill.
            You are thinking well.
            1) Yes, the 6 attributes or skills that are shown are essentially the most important. But there are others that can be important too depending of your style of play.
            2) Yes, 4 star skills are advanced skills (5 star is the higher). You can see here the list of 4 and 5 star skills players.
            3) To convert a CAM to ST you will need to buy and apply the following training cards: ST-CF and then CF-CAM. You can find these cards on auction – training search – position.

  116. Similar to the last persons question, thoughts on Balotelli as a CDM or CAM? Can purchase either for 14k(cam) and 17k (cdm). Which one do you suggest in a 4-2-2-2.
    thanks very much guys you do great

    • Hi.
      We never played with Balotelli as a CDM or a CAM because we think that he will not be good in these positions.
      A CDM needs to have good defensive attributes, and Balotelli are very weak on defence. A CAM need to have a good passing. This is not the strongest thing on Balotelli either.
      If you want to try it, you can make him as CDM applying him ST-CF, CF-CAM, CAM-CM and CM-CDM, and you can make him as CAM applying ST-CF and CF-CAM.

    • We think that the most important thing is to ask: what will I make with my team and how much can I get to my budget ?
      If you think that you can invest something like 600k coins on your team, you can try BPL. Otherwise, you should try Bundesliga. For the same price, we think that is better to have a 86 overall Bundesliga team than a 84 overall BPL team.

  117. Hi, i started FUT today. I read all your guides so i’m not soo noob, but something are pretty hard, heh?

    I took your advices and my squad is, with a 4-4-2:

    Rafael – Dawson – Jagielka – Ekkoto
    Pennant – Bronze guy – Bronze guy – Bronze guy
    Sturridge – Bronze guy

    As you can see, i have troubles in the mid. I can’t find Rosicky or Sahin anywhere. I don’t have money so i’m saving coins to buy Giggs or Ruiz, but i think is a bit slow.. isn’t that a problem? (i like to keep the ball sometimes, but also some fast – vertical play in some moments is part of my style. Which player do you recommend to that? as alternatives to Giggs and Ruiz (cheap players please xD).
    Forward, i really like Sturridge, and Cissé or Dzeko are out of my wallet in this moment, what can i buy? Sturridge is fine for now, or not?
    That’s all for now. Thank you very much for this page, it really helps.

    • i’m sorry, the name just skip to my head from there, i don’t have ekkoto, i was searchinf for him all day and i can’t find an auction for him. is gibbs a good option? i can’t afford Baines

    • Hi Bruno.
      If you started FUT today, you need to be patient. You can’t build a great team in one day.
      Take your time, PLAY, save coins and then you will be able to buy some stars. If you have not already did, be sure to read our article about how to begin FUT 13. It is important to plan very well whet you will do with your team.
      About your questions: pace is a problem, yes. Without pace players, it’s more difficult to win. The players we recommend are the players that you can afford. James Milner can be a good option to CM. He is under 1k, have good pace and pass, and his Work rates are both high. Sturridge is fine.
      Good games!

      • Hi! it’s been a long time!! 🙂

        I have winned the division 1 a few times now. I learned how to play well and that’s all thanks to you. This page helped me a lot !!

        Now i have a 4-4-2 with

        Sagna – Kompany – Vermaelen – Cole
        Valencia – Nasri – Yaya – Ashley Young
        Tevez – Podolski

        Is good right? i love it. But i think is very poor in my LM and RM. do you know what can i do? I’m doing well with the other players (I tried David Silva for Nasri and it’s pretty good but doesn’t work for me in my play style)
        But i think that LM and RM are pretty weak. Especially Valencia 🙁

        • Hi. Thank you very much.
          About your team, it doesn’t matter what we think. If it works for you, great.
          In fact, we think that you have a good team. RM/LM are the weakest positions. You have better LM players (1st Bale, 2nd Hazard, 3rd Nani) but probably they are too expensive for your budget. RM BPL players is a bit more complex. Valencia is the best one (except Mata IF). We think that you can’t improve your team without more coins.

  118. During happy hour, are the packs that are worth $25k guaranteed to give you a 85 rating or so? Or could you just get ripped off?

  119. Hi!

    I have a 4-4-2 with

    De gea
    Rafael – Vertonghen – Jagielka – Ekotto
    A. Lennon – Cabaye – Wilshere – Etherington
    Cissé – Welbeck

    is that good? what do you recommend me to buy now? i feel Ekotto – Etherington is my weak part, do you recommend buying Chamberlein for LM and Gibbs? I don’t have money to Clichy or Cole xd. Also, it’s really importante Glen Johnson? i’m doing well with Rafael, but i don’t know really. Lennon > Pennant, right? i have them both and i like them equally.
    I think i’m going to buy Dzeko now, i have some troubles with Welbeck and his defense rating, sometimes i see Cisse very alone in attack.

    Bye c:

    • Hi.
      You have a nice balanced team.
      If you are going fine with Rafael, you don’t need yo buy Glen Johnson. The same happens with Pennant and Lennon.
      Welbeck has a high defensive work rate and a high attacking work rate. That’s why he is out of position so often. Dzeko should be your next buy. LB/LM can wait…

  120. My team is:
    GK: Joe Hart
    Defenders: Cole, Agger, Terry, Sagna
    LM: Young. CM: Ramires. CM: Carzola. RM: Valencia
    Podolski & Hernandez upfront

    I want players with pace in midfield, and strikers, who do you think I should get? I want a team that will last me a few months and be consistent what do you reckon? pace is the most important thing for me and shot tbh

    • Hi.
      You already have a nice pace team.
      In the back line, you can try Clichy instead of Ashley Cole. We think you will like him.
      On the midfield, Nasri can take the Cazorla place.
      Your strikers are fast players with good shoot. In the future you can try Aguero if you have enough coins.

  121. i really don’t know what to do, i do pretty well until division 3, now i lost every game by 6-0 ,7-0 and more.. it’s pretty dificult, all the other teams are pretty great and i think mine is very, very weak.. it’s a bit frustrating

    i play 4-4-2 with

    Johnson- Dawson – Jagielka – Ekotto
    Adam J – Ruiz/Pennant – Cebaye – Etherington
    Dzeko – Cissé

    i feel the other teams much more explosive than mine.. what can i do? i don’t really want to change formation cuz i do pretty well until now and i like it.. and of course, i don’t have much coins to change formations.

    • Hi.
      There are great teams on division 1 and 2. You don’t have a bad team but, if you are not a pro, it will be a bit difficult to win the title.
      We don’t know how you play or your preferences but we will try to help you.
      You have a almost perfect low-budget BPL team. To improve it, you will need to save some coins. Ramires, for example, can be a important player into your squad. Trading is the best way to collect coins. You should try it.
      You should also verify how are the morale and the physic of your players.

  122. Hey, long time no see! 😀

    So I got a new question:

    I need a CAM and a ST combo from BPL both from same club (nationality doesn’t matter) and I was thinking if could give me a suggestions for the best possible combo? I have 50k to spend on it, thanks in advance.

  123. Hello guys!
    Great guide/ squad builder you have here.

    I wanted to ask you how my team in 4-1-2-1-2 could look like with 150k-200k. I am tired of my Bundesliga Team.
    1 Thing is a MUST and it’s David Silva in CAM of course. He is my 2nd favorite player in FIFA! I hope you can help me out!

    • Woops. I wasn’t done with my comment.
      So, I like to play through the mid and I like to play with crosses. I also like to make the field wide, you know.
      I also like to advance with the ball just a little bit.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Hi.
      BPL is very expensive. To have David Silva on it, you should try BBVA. Take a look to our guide.
      For your budget, our suggestion is:
      Diego Alves (4k), João Pereira (2k), Pepe (18k), Pique (20k), Alba (22k), Xabi (15k), Navas (9k), David Silva (53k), David Villa (7k), Benzema (47k) and Falcão (37k)

  124. Wow, thanks for that quick answer!
    I’ll definetly try that out. I didn’t think about David Silva being Spanish haha. You wrote them from left to right or right to left, postition wise?

  125. hey, i currently have rafeal (77) as RB, i like his attack contribution but he is a bit weak and has low stamina for me. I have a budget of 40,000, i don’t want to buy maicon because he is too expensive, who should i buy with pace and attack like rafeal but great defense attributes ?

  126. Hey!
    I’m struggling in front, because I can’t decide which players will be my in my 11 (4-1-2-1-2)

    I have:
    ST: Aguëro, Tevez, Balotelli
    CAM: Silva, Rooney
    LM: Hazard, Bale
    RM: Valencia, Nani(LM)

    I like Silva, but I think it’s a waste to put Rooney on the bench. Otherwise I like the pace for my ST’s so I don’t think Rooney is a better option as ST than Balo/Tevez. Or do you think otherwise?

    Thx for responding!

    • Hi.
      We had the same problem with our team. Aguero vs RVP vs Tevez vs Rooney. The CAM position is for David Silva. But the other two positions is a bit more difficult.
      After some matches, we choose to put Rooney + Aguero on the 11. Pace is very important but it isn’t everything. It depend of what is more important to you. We chose Rooney.
      You can take a look to our squad here.

  127. Hey guys, help would be greatly appreciated!
    I have a 4-2-2-2 with the following: How could I improve? Have 24k in the bank. Also, with my current lineup who would your starting 11 be?
    ST – Balotelli/ Hernandez /Defoe
    CAM – Podolski/ Gerrard/ Lampard
    CDM – Ramires Parker
    LB – Johnso
    CB – Ferdinand/ Agger/ Skrtel
    RB – Walker
    RB –
    GK –

    • Get a GK. 🙂
      First of all, you need a LB. If you don’t want to spend much coins with this, try Jose Enrique or Baines.
      Vermaelen can be a good cheap improvement too.
      The starting 11 it’s up to you. It depends of your preferences, your play style, etc… In our opinion CAM’s are Podolski +1 and ST’s are Balotelli +1. Defoe shoots better but Hernandez has better heading. To us, Gerrard is beter than Lampard.

  128. Sorry, messed up on the last one. help would be greatly appreciated!

  129. Hey There! Thanks for the useful tips and guides and i’ve a question concering my squad, i would like to upgrade my squad but im not sure which players i should replace first, currently i have 300k+ coins to spend, My squad is :
    Walker – Kompany – Kaboul – Clichy
    Ramires – Yaya Toure
    Balotelli – Podolski – Tevez

    i was thinking about replacing Podolski with Rooney but i think that his 79 pace is abit low and perhaps Balotelli with Samir Nasi and Tevez with David Silva and Tevez instead of Podolski , Thanks in Advance

    • Hi. Thanks.
      300k coins is a very good budget. Let’s spend them. 🙂
      You already answer to your own question. The defence is OK. You can change something on the attack. Aguero is the untouchable.
      Pace is really important but it isn’t everything. To us, the right choice would be David Silva – Rooney – RVP. But if pace is almost everything to you, you should try as you said: Nasri – David Silva – Tévez.
      Our final advice: buy one by one and try them. There’s nothing better than play with a player to see if he fits on our team or not.

  130. Hi I have a 4-1-2-1-2 team and am looking for advice for improvements here’s my team:


    I think Tevez is awful, is aguero worth the price tag of 90k?
    Also pace seems to be the main asset of a 41212 team and really fast players such as sessegnon and nzogbia seem to be more effective than mata and nani… I’m unsure of how to use them to the full advantage.

    • Hi.
      You have a nice team.
      It will become awesome with Aguero. He is probably the best striker of BPL. We love him.
      If you have enough coins, Bale can be a good improvement too since you love pace. Are you happy with Ashley Cole? If not, try Clichy. David Silva isn’t fast but he is much better than Mata.

  131. i have got a bpl team with a 4-3-2-1 formation
    defenders-evra, ferdinand, agger, johnson
    midfeilders-lampard, gerrard, wilshere
    strikers-cazorla,podolski and torres
    goalkeeper-de gea and julio cesar

    how should i improve my team and should i get a spanish team instead

    • Hi!
      It depends of your preferences, your style of play or your budget.
      You have good defenders and good strikers. We think that the weakest positions are on the midfield. Your CM’s are a bit slow. You should try Ramires. He is fast and he will make your team more compact.
      If you want to build a better team you need more coins. Or, as you said, you can sell your BPL team and buy a BBVA one. It’s cheaper. With the same money you can build a better team.

  132. HI. I am looking to sell my team. Is it possible you can tell me how much to sell each player for? Thank you! Also, 4-2-2-2. Lastly, if you could give me the prices, or maybe not of each player, how much would I have after I sold everybody, and could I make a better BBVA team?
    GK – Reina
    CB – Agger, Vermaelen, Ferdinand
    RB – Walker, Richards
    LB – Clichy, Enrique
    CDM – Ramires, Parker, Tioté
    CAM – Miccoli, Podolski, Lampard, Gerrard
    ST – Hernandez, Balotelli, Di Natalie

    • Balotelli sign by AC Milan. True. It’s official.
      But the players with Balotelli Manchester City cards will continue to have him on their clubs.
      The only difference is that these cards will no longer be available on packs. From now on, Balotelli will be released on Milan cards.

  133. I play 4-1-2-1-2
    Richards Kompany Vermalean Cole
    Valencia Bale
    Ageuro and Rooney

    The problem is people still get past my defence –
    Always have a lot of goals in matches
    I could buy VIDIC but that isn’t going to solve anything
    My goalkeeper is superb – lollris was too small in height and couldn’t save most penalties even if you dived the right way and long shots also

    I need a good cb that runs fast any recommendations please and also advise on any others would be great

    • Hi.
      Your team is almost the BPL dreamteam. Congratulations.
      About your defence problems, you are absolutely righ: Vidic will not solve anything. He is brilliant but he is too slow too.
      The right thing to do is to change your formation to avoid your opponent pass through your defence so easily. We can imagine that it is not a good solution to you because you already have a formation which you like to play and changing it cost you a lot of coins. But it is the right decision.
      It isn’t easy to solve this problem with players because you already have the best two BPL CB’s that you can have. You can try to buy Sergio Ramos + Pepe + Casillas but it will affect a bit of your chemistry (think about it!).
      About the other players, in our opinion, Valencia is the weakest one. Some people put Bale on the right side and Hazard on the left side but it isn’t the perfect solution.
      You should try to think on a hybrid squad.

  134. Hi,
    I was just wondering if you will be able to help me with improvements or changes to my team. My formation is 352.

    St-tevez and Rooney
    Lm rm-young and Valencia
    Cam – David silva
    Cdm – toure and Parker
    Cb – terry agger and Ferdinand
    Gk – hart

    • Hi. Sure. But it depends of your style of play, your preferences, your budget, etc…
      The first thing that we have to say is about your CB’s. They are good but a bit slow. Vermaelen is a good cheap option for that place. Playing with only 3 defenders you need that they have good pace.
      Rooney is superb but for the same money some players prefer Aguero. It’s up to you. We you get some more coins you should try Bale to Young place. He is superb!

  135. Hi. I have 40k to spend on a team can you think of any improvements that i can make on the team i have. formation 4-3-3 and i like to play pacey players any improvements and help would be very appreciated.
    GK- De Gea
    Lb- Clichy
    Cb- Smalling
    Cb- Evans
    Rb- Walker
    Cm- Milner
    Cm Kagawa
    Lw- Jarvis
    Rw- Walcott
    St- Bent

    This is the team i was going to build please can you give improvements for the team.

    • Hi Jordan. Nice to have you here with us.
      You have a fast team for your budget.
      Maybe you could try Vermaelen as CB. He is a bit more expensive but it’s so difficult to get more 4k coins. He will be a great improvement to your team.
      If pace is almost everything to you we can’t suggest you anything more.

  136. Hey guys, what do you think about my PL-team? Open for suggestions.

    De Gea
    Walker- ferdinand- škrtel- Gibbs
    Lampard- Parker
    Walcott- Wilshere- Sinclair


    This website have helped me alot for this team 🙂

    • Hi.
      It isn’t easy to help you since it depends of your style of play, your preferences and your budget. The best players to us can be the worst to you.
      On the defence you suggest to take a look to Vermaelen. He is better than Skrtel. We know that it is a bit more expensive but it isn’t so difficult to get 4k coins.
      We also think that you have very good players on the bench. Some of them are better than the main 11.

      • Thanks for the reply!
        I just bought Vermaelen for 4,3k and I got to say that it was a really good advise.
        Which players do you think of when you said I had better players on my bench them in my starting11?
        My budget ain’t really a problem…
        When I play i use my wingers the most.
        I am thinking of selling Torres and buy Tevez insted, is that smart?

        Sorry for all the grammar mistakes, I am a pretty young guy from Sweden so English ain’t that easy for me. 🙂

  137. Hi, I got Walcott for 6k at RF and i dont know where to put him as i use (4-1-2-1-2) formation, here is my team, where do you think I should put him?
    ps: got about 10k to spend on position modifiers

    GK- De Gea

  138. I managed to bag myself an IF Falcao today, and would like to incorporate him into my Premier League team, would you be able to suggest some decent swaps I could make? Right now my team stands as (4-1-2-1-2)

    Aguero – Falcao
    Hazard – – Navas
    Cole – Vidic – Kompany – Maicon

  139. Hi! First, I’d like to say this is a really good page for people interested in FUT, and I’m really looking forward to any future articles on coin-making. Now, I’m builiding a, basically, EPL team with Benzema. My first squad for it is the following:

    Formation: 4-1-2-1-2
    GK: Mandanda
    CB’s: Kaboul/Koscielny
    RB: Walker
    LB: Clichy
    CDM: Tiote
    LM: Bale
    RM: Ben Arfa
    CAM: Nasri
    ST’s: Remy/Benzema

    As you can see, it’s a team that doesn’t really shines for it’s defensive unit (I’m thinking of Sagna for RB, but I’d have to change him from another squad) but right now I don’t have the coins to buy someone like Lloris. Apart from the “obvious” change of Tioté to Touré, how could I improve the team, without changing the strikers, Nasri and Bale? I was thinking in Toulalan for CDM and then playing with some CB partnership like Rami-Pepe, but then I’d have chemistry issues with one of the fullbacks…well, I hope to receive some advice, and thanks in advance!

    • Hi.
      We have so many subjects to our articles. Coin-making is the largest and we decided to split into several articles. Every week we will publish one or two articles about this theme. The most interesting ones are saved for the end.
      ” “obvious” change of Tioté to Touré” 🙂 You read our commentaries!
      Building a team with different nationalities and leagues, and keeping a good chemistry, it’s a big challenge. And you are going well with it.
      If you want to put Toulalan as CDM and CB partnership Rami-Pepe, you will need to buy a BBVA golakeeper as Madrid’s Diego López or as Valencia’s Diego Alves. Both give to your team a weak and a strong link. More important is the fullbacks problem. You can try Joao Pereira as RB. He is very good and connect very well with Pepe or with Rami. Sagna is a better option since he connects with everybody.

      • You got me there, I read like…half of the commentaries on this post haha
        Back to the team, in a sense, Touré is (at least on paper, haven’t had the opportunity to play with him) an evolved Tioté, and it’s like…the “natural” improvement. Although I’ve been thinking in the Pepe – Joao Pereira link, and I got this:

        GK: Diego Lopez (Madrid)
        CB’s: Kompany/Pepe
        RB: Joao Pereira
        LB: Clichy
        CDM: Touré
        RM: Ben Arfa
        LM: Bale
        ST’s: Remy/Benzema

        With those exact players, everyone remains on 9 chemistry (but, say, if I put Tioté instead of Touré, both his and Kompany’s chemistry goes down to 7) although I’m finding it hard, budgetwise, to complete that squad. Anyways, thanks a lot for your advice, I found it really helpful, and I will surely get back to you once in a while for help

        • Hi.
          We think that you already have the squad that you wanted. And if they all have 9 individual chemistry, it is really great. It isn’t a big problem to got 2 players with chemistry 7. You can live with that. Specially if it only happens on some matches.
          Good games!

  140. Hi, I have a 5-2-1-2 BPL.
    I am not sure who to start at CF, and the two striker spots.
    Balotelli is going to be one of them for sure. But, do I put Micolli, Podolski, or Hernandez at CF. and which one do I put at ST? Also, I am considering getting Suarez or Torres for CF. Who would you recommend.

  141. my team currently is
    julio cesar
    walker Vermaelen kaboul clitchy
    javi garcia
    walcott bale
    suarez hernandez
    this is my tea and ive got 10k to spend anyone you think i should sell or anywhere you think i should improve. p.s. thanks for the guide it was very good

  142. Hey guys i got a.4-4-2 any recommended fixes I have around 30k spare
    Sagna Terry Luiz Cole
    Walcott lampard gerrad nani
    Balotelli podolski
    Any advice will be muchly appreciated 🙂

    • Hi.
      You have a good team for your budget. You can’t improve it much more without getting more coins.
      With 30k we suggest to sell Lampard and buy Touré. He is a great player that will make your team more solid thanks to his high defensive and attacking work rate. It will be a great improvement unless you don’t conceded many goals.

  143. hi i have 4-3-3 prem team. looking for improvements.

    GK. Joe Hart
    CB: Agger, Terry, Vermaelen, hangeland
    LB+ RB: Evra, sagna
    CMid: Cazorla, Silva, nasri, rodwell
    LW: Hazard, bale, oxlade-cham
    RW: Walcott
    ST. Sturridge, van persie,

    got a few hundred k to spend

  144. Hi. I would love some suggestions for my BPL team.
    I play 3-5-2

    GK: Peter Cech
    CB: David Luiz, John Terry, Daniel Agger
    CDM: Yaya Toure and John Obi Mikel
    LM: Gareth Bale
    RM: Antonio Valencia
    CAM: Juan Mata
    ST: Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli


    • Hi. You have a nice team but our suggestions depend of your preferences, your budget and your style of play.

      Anyway, we will try it:
      If you got 2k, sell Agger and buy Vermaelen
      If you got more 10k, buy Ramires to Mikel place
      If you got more 20k, sell Mata and buy Silva
      or buy Tévez to Sturridge place


  145. Hey guys, I was wondering, in a 4-5-1 formation who is best at left mid and who do you recommend out of nani or bale or someone else (dont have enough coins for hazard)

    • Hi.
      Out of Nani and Bale, the better one is Ashley Young. Clint Dempsey and Matthew Etherington are good cheap players.
      You can hire a LW to LM position. The better ones are Arshavin, Gervinho and Malouda. And Hazard, of course.

      • Thanks for the quick reply. You said ‘Out of nani and bale, the better one is ashley young’. Did you mean that instead of nani or bale i should get ashley young or is this a mistake and you missed out who was better out of bale and nani by accident?

  146. And at cb in 4-5-1, should i get terry or vermaelen because terry is rated higher but from looking at their stats vermaelen seems to have better stats. Who would you recommend, or is there someone else i could get

  147. Gk Valdez
    Rb pepe

    Sticking to bpl/bbva what improvements could I make I was thinking xavi and vidic thanks 🙂

    • We love hybrid teams.
      We don’t know your preferences, your style of play, your budget, etc… It isn’t easy to help you without that.
      Some suggestions that we can give you:
      1) Navas is, at least, as good as Sanchez and connects better with Alonso/Silva.
      2) Pepe isn’t playing at his best as RB. Even if you have team chemistry 100.

      If you have coins to invest:
      2) Bale is better than Nani and the effect on the chemistry is the same.
      3) Aguero is better than RVP and the effect on the chemistry is the same.
      4) Sergio Ramos is better than Pique.
      5) Casillas is better than Valdez.

      Xavi is a good option. We don’t agree with Vidic since he is too slow. Great CB but too slow.

  148. Hi,
    I was wondering if you can recommend the best players to for the blank positions in this 4-5-1 bpl team, and any improvements on the players I already have:
    GK: Hart
    RB: Maicon RCB: Kompany LCB: Vermaelen LB: Cole
    RM: Valencia LM:
    CAM: CAM: David Silva
    Once again I would like your recommendations for the positions I have left blank and any improvements on the players I already have in there. I have an almost unlimited budget as I’m pretty good at trading but would like to avoid buying in forms etc. Thanks in advance

    • Hi.
      We totally agree with you: In Form cards are too expensive. Not good value for money.
      About your team we don’t know what is your play style and your preferences but we will try to help you anyway.
      Let’s put names on the blank spaces: CM – Touré LM – Bale (or even Hazard) ST – Aguero
      You have a nice team. Vermaelen and Valencia are the weakest players. You don’t have any other good players on BPL to these places. To improve this team even more you will need to turn it on a Hybrid squad. See here our BBVA/BPL squad.

      • thanks for the quick and very helpful reply. However, I think you accidentally missed one of the blanks which is the cam other than david silva because there is two cams in 4-5-1. I’d love to get your recommendation for that position and i will look into a hybrid squad in the future

        • Hi again. Sorry about that. We forgot the CAM.
          In our opinion, the best BPL players that you can use as CAM are ST’s. If coins isn’t a problem to you, you can try Rooney. Tévez and RVP are also good options.

          • I was thinking of maybe changing to 4-1-2-1-2 as I’ve tried that and it feels much better. Do you think its worth it for the extra money it will cost and also who would you recommend as the cam here,david silva or rooney and who would you recommend as the second striker alongside aguero?

          • Hi. We can’t give you exact answers since it’s up to you.
            In our opinion, if you feel much better with 4-1-2-1-2 and you have no great difficulties to get more coins, then you should do it.
            We think that David Silva can play as CAM and Rooney as ST alonside Aguero. He isn’t fast but he has other great skills.

  149. My BPL Team is…
    GK: Cech
    RB: Ivanovic
    CB: Ferdinand
    CB: Vermaelen
    LB: Cole
    CM: Arteta
    CM: Scholes
    CM: Sahin
    RW: Walcott
    ST: Dzeko
    LW: Gervinho

    Rating: 82
    Chemistry: 100

    Current Budget: 20K
    (Saving up for Yaya Toure)

    I am finding it hard to make money. Please give me some good tips. If you want me to do trading, specify which players are good to trade with. And who shall I buy after Yaya Toura, I was thinking Van Persie! I really wanna end up with the team you have!


    • Hi.
      You have a nice team for your budget. Toure will be a great improvement to it and RVP too. But we think that you are thinking well saving for Toure first.
      There is no big secrets on trading. There’s no better cards to trade too. We will explain better in some articles that we will publish soon.
      Until there, you can try to buy some cards from 1am to 9am and sell it from 4pm to 10pm. It’s a very goo way to make profit.
      Final note: our team is THIS one.

  150. i have a better team 4-5-1 lloris

    What improvements can I make to my team

    • Hi.
      We love hybrid squads but we have not sure if yours are all right. You should verify if you have team chemistry 100 and, most important, if your individual chemistry is, at least, 7 for all your players. We think it’s not. For example, Sneijder doesn’t link well with anyone. We can’t suggest improvements since you should rebuild your team from the start. They will not play all they know. Sorry.

  153. I have about 250k coins after recently selling my bpl team – which I have done a countless number of times since I started playing FUT. Any suggestions for a good bpl formation / squad? I was thinking something like a 4-1-2-1-2? That seemed like the best experience I had with using bpl teams except I destroyed the team after I started to concede a lot of goals and go on a losing streak.
    I was thinking:
    ST Balotelli-Aguero
    CAM: Nasri
    LM: Bale
    RM: Valencia
    CDM: Toure
    LB: Clichy OR Cole
    CB: Luiz / Kaboul
    RB: Richards OR Walker

    I would love to hear your suggestions for this team and what I should do!

    • Hi.
      Nice to have you here with us.
      The first thing to decide is which formation you will use. If you are getting a good experience from 4-1-2-1-2, continue with it. It is a good formation for a BPL.
      About your team, you should start by hiring a GK. 🙂
      We have no great recommendations about your team. It is great as it is. Both RB and both LB fit on this team. The only thing that we don’t agree 100% is the CAM. Nasri is great but David Silva is better. But he can be better to us and not for you. He is a bit slower but he has a great ball control. He is a more expensive but for us he worth all that coins.

  154. Hi
    First of all, Thanks for you great website. I learnt too many things from you. I have one question. My formation in ultimate team is 4-3-3. And this is my squad right now:
    GK Hart
    RB Sagna
    CB Terry
    CB Lescott
    LB Baines
    CM(Right) Ramires
    CM(Middle) Toure
    CM(Left) Wilshere
    RW Walcott
    ST van.Persie
    LW Arshavin
    I played more than 15 games with this squad but RVP only scored once and he’s not playing well in my squad. But Arshavin play very well and scored 13 goals so far(as a LW). Walcott plays very well too and make so many chances for other players and scores many goals. But i don’t know why RVP doesn’t play well. when i use Balotelli instead of him as strike he play better and score more goals. My first question is what kind of striker should I use in this formation to score more goals? I mean I thought RVP is great and he really was(in my former squads and formations) but in this formation he doesn’t play well. And my second question is do you think if I buy Rooney (as ST) and use him instead of RVP could he score more goals and be a better striker than RVP?

    • First of all, thanks. We work hard to bring you good original content about FIFA Ultimate Team.
      You are thinking well. There’s no better player than others. RVP can be good for some formations and for the play style of some gamers, but not for everyone. If you have enough coins, the best thing to do is to try some players and see who fits better on your team.
      We think that Aguero is the right striker to a 4-3-3 BPL team. It is important to have good pace since he is alone and a bit far from the RW/LW. RVP is not so fast and it is the same problem that Rooney has. But he can work for you. Try him. You can always sell him and buy another one. Tévez is also a cheap solution for that position on a 4-3-3 but we think that Aguero is the best one.

  155. who do you guys think is the best cam from bpl for a 4-1-2-1-2 team. My style of play is dribbling and passing into around the box and then shooting and only occasionaly crossing.

  156. Plz , I don’t need explanations ,I trust you . 🙂
    What team would you buy with 1950000. ( any league) . Thank you 🙂
    I like if , totw, toty

    • Hi. It’s wonderful to build a team with so huge budget.
      We know that you love IF’s cards but we think they are not good value for money. You pay too much for just a little improvement. It’s better to spend that money on better regular players. And you know that! But you love to see all that coloured cards. 🙂
      Our suggestion: Casillas (110k), Dani Alves (225k), Pepe IF (260k), Sergio Ramos (160k), Marcelo (45k), Di Maria IF (370k), David Silva (40k), Touré (35k), Bale IF (500k), Aguero (100k) and Rooney (90k). Total: 1.935.000 coins
      To build a better team we need to spend some more hours…

  157. Hi, I was just wondering what my team is like and what improvements I could make with my team to make it better.
    I only have bale rm because I think he is better than any other rm in the prem and it still doesn’t mess my chemistry up.

    • Hi.
      Starting by the end. When you say that Bale doesn’t mess with your chemistry you are talking about keeping team chemistry 100. But the individual chemistry is more important than that. You can play with bale on the right side, and we understand why you do that, but be careful: his individual chemistry should be, at least, 7.
      About your team, you have almost the perfect BPL team. For us, the weakest players are Agger and Suarez. In our opinion, David Silva is better. But it is only an opinion.

  158. Hi I have a 442 team with
    Walcott,Toure,Fellaini, Bale

    Kone scores more than Ballotelli! I have 150k to improve, any suggestions? Great site by the way

    • Thanks.
      You have a good BPL team.
      Our first suggestion is about your CM’s. They are both too defensive. We think that David Silva or Nasri could take the Fellaini place.
      If you are happy with Kone you should keep him. But you could give a try to Aguero. Maybe to Ballotelli place. It’s up to you.

  159. Hello once again. Thanks for your respond yesterday. With 175k budget what formation and players do you suggest? No matter what league or nation. Just something hybrid. I’m going to make a new squad with these coins and it would be an honor if you help me do this. Thanks again.

    • To build the best hybrid squad possible, we need time. And we don’t have it now.
      We will try a basic hybrid for you.
      Buffon (50k), João Pereira (2k), Pepe (15k), Chiellini (30k), Alba (15k), Navas (8k), Xabi (13k), David Silva (40k), David Villa (6k).
      We didn’t test it but we think that it will have 100 team chemistry and individual chemistry 9. And yes, we know that there are no strikers. You can put anyone you want and it will not affect the chemistry. Just one rule: choose two players of same club and same nationality (example: Tévez and Aguero).

      • Thanks for your attention. Two more question. I built my new BPL squad with 4-4-1-1 formation. Here it is:
        GK Hart
        LB Evra
        CB Terry
        CB Lescott
        RB Sagna
        LM Young
        CM Fellaini
        CM Wilshere
        RM Valencia
        CF David Silva
        ST RVP

        What do you think about my squad? I mean you think what should I change in this? and my second question is do you think for CF if I use Rooney instead of David Silva my squad get any better? I think with myself that Silva has better dribbling skills and better passing ability. But his shoots are not better than Rooney. In general view David Silva is a very creative playmaker and midfielder but not the best in front of the goal and Wayne Rooney is one of the bests in front of the goal but not very creative and good as a midfielder. A Central Forward(CF) should have both of these attributes and I don’t know which one should I choose. What do you think? David Silva or Wayne Rooney as CF in my team?

        • Hi again.
          You have a good BPL team. But you can improve it. Vermaelen, for example, is very cheap and can be a good addition.
          About the CF, you already said everything. You should decide what is more important to you. We don’t shoot far from the goal, so we prefer David Silva since he is more creative. But your play style can be different.
          In our opinion, you can try David Silva as CM and Rooney as CF. Then, you will be able to decide.

  160. Hi, similar to most posts just wandering what you think of my team and where I can improve, I have about 30k in the bank and thinking of maybe just saving up for Kompany and/or Hart (although Handanovic is one hell of a keeper), my formation is 4-2-2-2 not everyone’s favorite but it works well for me, anyway my team is as follows: –

    GK – Handanovic
    LB – Cole
    CB – Vermaelen
    CB – Agger
    RB – Sagna
    CAM – Mata
    CDM – Tiote
    CDM – Toure
    CAM – Nasri
    ST – Van Persie
    ST – Tevez

    Subs: – GK – Marchetti, CB – Ferdinand, LB – Baines, CAM – Cazorla,
    CAM – Gerrard , CDM – Fellaini, ST – Cavani


  161. 4-3-2-1

    GK: cech
    LB: ashley cole sub: clichy
    CB: terry, cahill sub: david luiz
    RB: ivanovic sub: sagna
    CM: juan mata, santi cazorla, ramires, sub: lampard, wilshire
    LF: gervinho sub: ashley young
    RF: walcott sub: valencia
    ST: podolski sub: valencia

    still saving up for david silva, nasri, rooney and van perse.

  162. Hi, I have a 100k budget. Can you like you did for the other guy build me a hybrid squad? I want a really really fast team….Include Balotelli and Podolski please? Also, 3-5-2 formation or 4-1-2-1-2. thank you
    Or a 3-4-3. whatever you thiink is best for a fast team. I like to dribble the ball and shoot from around the 18.

  163. hi,any suggestions for my team 442

    thanks,i have 50k
    top site by the way good tips and player list class.

    • Thanks!
      Our suggestions depends of your play style and your preferences. But we will try.
      You have a nice team Lbut let’s spend 50k 🙂
      You need a pacey CB. Vermaelen is a good choice for most of people (4k).
      On the midfield, Toure will be a great improvement (36k).
      On the attack, if you are going right with Torres, you can leave him on your team. Otherwise, try Tévez that have the same price.
      And you keep with 10k to improve your bench. Rotation is very important on FUT 13.

  164. hi thx,
    much appreciated .

    up all night lol, couldnt afford toure yet,but i improved my squad i hope.
    new team



    thanks 4 info and would you change anything.
    love the work keep it up.

  165. Hi guys awesome site
    I currently have this team (4312)
    Maicon Kompany IF Koscielny A.Cole
    Cazorla(CM) Toure Silva(CM)
    Aguero Van Persie

    Subs: Vermaelen, Lampard(CF), Gerrard(CM), Mata(CM), Nasri(CM), Balotelli

    I’m thinking of switching Van Persie and Rooney’s positions, since as a CF with high/high workrates Rooney is out of position on the counter a lot, and van persie has decent passing. Also Rooney is better at heading so he’ll be a good partner for Aguero and won’t be able to get too far back as a ST. Do you guys think this is a good idea? Also is Nasri a better option than Santi? I know pace is important, but Santi’s 5* weak foot and awesome longshots have me divided. Comment and let me know what you think. Thanks

    • Hi. Thanks.
      RVP is a good option to CF. We play with him as CM! He has god passing and shoot well outside the box. As you said Rooney is good as CF too but he can get out of position often and has a better heading. He is a good partner to Aguero (they are our strikers).
      If you played with Santi and Nasri and you prefer the first one, who are we to say anything to you? 🙂 We prefer Nasri.
      You don’t have any more improvements to suggest. Great team by the way.

      • Thanks so much! I think I re submitted the same comment…sorry. Keep up the good work guys! Off to try RVP as a CF! And I’ll probably keep switching nasri and santi out for a while until I finally prefer one of them. Thanks once again

  166. Hi futhead,

    Please can you suggest to me a team on a 70k budget from any league. My playing preferences are playing in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation, I use the wings a lot, and do many crosses and through balls. Any help would be highly appreciated 🙂


  167. 90k, 4-1-2-1-2 I want a very fast team. What players do you suggest? I am open to any league but want a very fast team I will want to keep and not keep selling. thank you

  169. Hello again. Here is my new 3-4-2-1 BPL squad.
    GK: De Gea (IF)
    CB: Lescott
    CB: Vermaelen
    CB: Terry
    CM Fellaini
    CM Wilshere
    RM Valencia
    LM Young
    RF Walcott
    LF Arshavin
    ST Rooney
    Bench: Smalling, Johnson, Ramires, Ben Arfa, Balotelli, Gervinho, Mikel Arteta, Ferdinand, Dempsey.
    I have a good team but in every game I can’t score more than 3 or 4 goals and with 3-4-2-1 formation I know I should score more. I thought Rooney would be a great player for this squad but apparently he isn’t and a normal rare player like Gervinho scored more goals than him in this formation and squad. So my question is who should I use instead of Rooney in front of my goal as a Striker? (no matter if he’s not from BPL but his price should be less than 80k)
    Thanks again

  172. Can you help me with a 40-45k budget BPL team? i really don’t like shooting from outside the box, so i like keeping the ball and making pass until i get some space to make deep pass to my strikers.
    I like 4-1-2-1-2 or 4-4-2.. i probably prefer 4-1-2-1-2 this time but i dony have money for a good CDM (yaya toure) what do you recommend?

    • Hi. You forgot to say in which platform you play but let’s try a 4-1-2-1-2.
      Júlio César (1,5k), Glen Johnson (6k), Jan Vertonghe (1k), Vermaelen (4k), Leighton Baines (1k), Ramires (8k), Jack Wilshere (3k), Stéphane Sessègnon (1,5k), Santi Cazorla (5k), Javier Hernández (2k), Loïc Rémy (10k). Total = 42k

  173. Fellaini or Scott Parker? for more defensive CM in 4-4-2. and what offensive CM can i use? cheap but not veery cheap.. i was thinking in Arteta but i really don’t know. Kagawa is good?

    and Aaron Lennon or Valencia? Valencia is a a little bit slower but i think is more complete.. or not? And which LM can you recommend me? better than Ettherington but not very expensive.. I think ashley young is good but it’s too expensive in ps3.. i can’t find it for less than 9k and i can’t afford that right now.

    • It depends of your play style and preferences.
      We think that Fellaini is better but if you want to save some coins, Parker will be OK too. They don’t have many differences. Fallaini has better heading which can be important on goal kicks and something like that.
      Arteta is better than Kagawa in almost all the attributes but not in the most important one: pace. Besides that, Kagawa has high attacking work rate what makes him the right choice for you attacking CM.
      Valencia is a better option to RM. he is much better in almost everything. Taking the example of crossing, he has 87 and Lennon only 79.
      Ashley Young is only 6k on PS3. Try to search him again.

  174. Hi, i play 4-4-2 and my defense is Rafael – Vermaelen – Dawson – Baines

    i think i need to improve it, i don’t have much money but i’m thinking in buying Koscielny for Dawson. Is he good? or maybe i have to buy Vertonghen? Or David Luiz?
    And for my RB who is better? Sagna or Micah Richards? i don’t know if i will buy Glen Johnson because i’m searching for a more defensive RB.

  175. Gk Diego Lopez
    Rb fabio Contra

    How can u improve this team thanks

    • Hi. You don’t need to put Coentrão as RB. You have João Pereira to that place! He is good.
      If you are getting problems with the Rami, cause his pace, you can try to get a fastest player as Miranda. Only if you are conceding a lot on counters.
      The midfield and the strikers are OK. If you have enough coins, Ozil can take the Modric place.

  176. Do you recommend Ashley Young? Nani, Hazard and Bale are way to expensive for me right now and i don’t know which player buy to my Left midcamp.
    I currently have Etherington. I tried with Arshavin and doesn’t work for me.
    How is Clint Dempsey? i don’t know him.. but i can see he is a bit slow..

    • Hi.
      You already answer to your question. 🙂
      The better ones on BPL are Nani, Hazard and Bale. But they are too expensive. Etherington is good to very cheap teams. Dempsey is a bit better than him but not much.
      We suggest Ashley Young. For his price, he is the best one.

  177. Hi,
    I’m playing with my Liverpool theme roster but I want to change something.
    4-3-3 theme Liverpool:
    ST. Suarez
    LW. Assaidi RW. VDowning
    CM. Gerrard CM. Allen CM. Sahin
    LB. J. Enrique CB. Skrtel CB. Agger RB. G. Johnson
    GK. Reina
    I want to change something on CMs positions because sometimes my defense is too weak when someone is counter attacking. I have about 30k for new players. If you have some ideas, write it here. Thanks.

  178. Hiya I play a 4-3-1-2 formation my squad is

    GK – Lloris
    LB – Evra (Totw)
    RB – Maicon
    CB – Vidic
    CB – Kompany
    CM – Mata
    CM – Toure
    CM – Silva
    CF – Rooney
    ST – Van Persie
    ST – Aguero

    Bench, A.Cole, Terry, Sagna, Nasri, Cazorla, Suarez, Tevez

    Could I improve my team any more thanks

    • Hi.
      Congratulations for your team. It isn’t easy to improve it much more. You already have a fantastic team and and really good bench.
      In order to make it better you need to transform it in a hybrid squad. But you are fine like you are. You can buy In Form cards too (Kompany, Silva, etc) but, in our opinion, that cards are not good value for money.

  179. Hi,
    I just had a quick question, what do you think of my BPL 3-5-2 squad.
    ST: Balotelli – Aguero
    CAM: Nasri
    LM: Nani
    RM: Arfa
    CDM: Ramires – Toure
    CB: Luiz – M’Bia – Kaboul
    GK: Hart

    What would you suggest to change? Some games I win with a giant lead but lately I have been losing about 3-4 games in a row before a win etc.

    • Hi.
      We don’t know your play style, your preferences and your budget. It isn’t easy to advice without that.
      In our opinion you have a good BPL squad. Arfa is the weakest player. We think that Valencia is better.
      There are another thing that you should be careful. You play with only three defenders and all of them have medium or even high attacking work rate. This means that they can be out of position many times.
      If you are going well with Nasri, keep him. Otherwise, you can try Silva, Tévez or RVP for that place.
      Check the players morale to be sure that they not affect your players performance.

      • Hey guys thanks for the quit reply about my 3-5-2 team. I have been considering changing the formation back to having 4 defenders in the back BUT I am really keen on keeping my team within the BPL – mainly for money reasons & I am a big man u fan 🙂
        Anyway I was wondering, do you have any recommendations for a formation using a bpl team – also do you think it is better to have wingers or 2 strikers? Lately I have been using Balotelli & Aguero and for me, it seems that Balotelli is scoring more often in most circumstances. Thanks

        • Hi.
          There is no better formation. One can be better to us and the other one to you. We think that 4-1-2-1-2 is great for BPL but it is only our opinion.
          The same happens about wingers and strikers. We, for example, love to play with wingers and two strikers (4-4-2).
          When things go well we do not have to change. Keep playing with Balotelli and Aguero.

          • Thanks for the quick reply again! I have actually used 4-1-2-1-2 twice in a row ( scrapping teams and then coming back… ) Sad thing is I actually used cards on all my 41212 players to get 352! 🙁 But that’s fine heh I thought 4-4-2 was deemed as a bad formation for attacking or something? Though it is similar to what my favorite team uses – Man U / England’s National team – isn’t it harder to use when facing the usual pace whores etc.? I am definitely looking to get out of the 3 defenders in the back scheme so I will probably try either of these. Since you support my idea of keeping balotelli & aguero – who else would I fill in for a 4-1-2-1 and a 4-4-2? Thanks again! (I kept hart because he seems good/nani/valencia along with aguero & balotelli) Let me know what you think

          • Would you say its better to use a CAM/CDM than having 2 CM if I usually play against people who are good at skilling / pace whores ( I tend to concede a lot of goals resulting in a long line of losses before I attain a win )
            So 4-1-2-1-2 or 4-4-2
            St: Balotelli (left) Aguero (right)
            LM: Nani RM: Valencia
            CAM: David Silva ( Do you think RVP would be better in the 4-1-2-1-2)
            CDM: Toure
            LB: Cole or Clichy?
            CB: Who? Kaboul? and?
            RB: Richards? Walker? Sagna?
            GK: Hart

            The positions I listed with multiple names are what I am stuck on deciding, who do you prefer for those situations given the other players in the BPL formation?

          • There are not right answers. The best to us can be the worst to you.
            We prefer 4-4-2. It works fine if one of the CM’s have high defensive work rate (as Toure, in your case).
            Our choices: Sagna, Kompany, Vermaelen, Cole and David Silva (not RVP).

          • Thanks I am going to convert to a 4-4-2 team. Just to clarify:
            LEFT TO RIGHT
            ST: Balotelli – Aguero
            LM: Nani
            CM: Toure – Silva
            RM: Valencia
            LB: Cole
            CB: Vermaleon – ( don’t have enough money for anybody yet lol )
            RB: Sagna ( once I get money )
            GK: Hart

            Most of my players, the attackers, are still in a 3-5-2 formation – is it better to sell them and then re-buy them in a 4-4-2 formation? Also do you know of any good websites to buy fifa coins or players from?

          • Yes and yes. 🙂
            You have a nice team. Check if your players have individual chemistry 9. If they have, you don’t need to waste money on formation cards.
            A 4-4-2 card costs you something like less than 3k. That’s the only thing you need to know to decide if you should re-buy or not.
            Buying coins and players can be extremely dangerous since most of the sellers are not honest. Be careful. We can advise you a seller that you can trust 100%. Just click on the BuyFIFAPlayers banner that we have on this page, on the right side.

          • Okay I got Kompany – thanks for the go-ahead for buyfifaplayers – my security suite kept saying it was a phising site so I was unsure, but I did it and got rooney/walcott from them and sold them for coins 😛

            Last question, to finish this team off strong; is maicon worth it or sagna? RB is the last position to fill. Also Why do you say vermalen for cb with kompany? Is he the best partner for him or is vidic?

          • Hi.
            Vidic is too slow. He is like a wall. No one passes by him but in counter attacks he loses every time.
            If Sagna didn’t fit on your team, try another one. Maicon is a bit expensive but, if you have enough coins, go ahead.

          • Sorry… Just really frustrated with another row of losses with the new team.. Seems like Sagna didn’t do anything, I would always see the opponent’s cf like podolski sprinting past him… Conceeding 3 goals every game

    • Using the 4-42 squad… scored once and I conceede 3 goals.. Sagna doesn’t do shit… He’s the one behind people’s wingers…

  180. Hey guys loved your article.

    I play a 4-3-2-1 formation and i really like it, it means i can have 3 strikers who dont run on the wings and instead take shots at goal, as im not really a wide player. i have 100k and will soon have 140k, so who would you recommend to go LF? i need a player with good pace, pass and finish and i cant decide between bale hazard and nani, who would you recommend? i also wanted some extra coins left over to perhaps buy kompany to upgrade me defense and possibly gk

    and also who would you play RF and ST? i have hernandez up front and ben arfa/ sturridge RF, would you recommend anyone else? perhaps IF mata or walcott?

    • Hi.
      As LF we recommend Hazard. We really love Bale must he plays better as LM. We agree with the opinion of most of the people: on BPL, Bale is the best LM but Hazard the best LW/LF. Nani is not so good as these two players.
      As ST we recommend Aguero. Since you have not enough coins to him, Tévez would be a great improvement.
      To RF, the BPL don’t have many good quality players. IF Mata is too expensive. Not good value for money. We think that the best option is Valencia but you should try to find him as RW or even better as RF.

  181. hey guys thanks for your quick reply.
    i got hazard and i absolutely adore him! he’s so fast and has a way better finish than his card says, more like high 90’s.

    forget the money, who would you say is the best LONE ST in the bpl? i have about 50k left over, thinking about replacing sturridge with valencia which leaves me about 45k, and i dont mind saving for for players such as rooney or aguero or rvp?
    or perhaps in simpler terms, which BPL ST would perform best on his own without another ST in support?

  182. and also, in my midfield i have nasri, milner and taarabt. milner plays to an exceptionally high standard but nasri doesn’t seem to fit in this squad, would you recommend selling nasri for 40k and then buy another mid? (toure, mata, cazorla etc.) dont worry about wallet, my cousin is offering to give me any coins i need to make my team!

    • You have a good cousin. 🙂
      Sometimes a player can be very good but can’t fit in our team. In that case, the important is to try another one. Our opinion: get Toure if you need defense support or get Silva (CM) if you need attack support.

  183. HI, i have a 4-4-2 with

    Szceny (I know it’s cheap but it’s just a beast for me, i tried with De gea and it was bad.. so i keep with Szce)
    Sagna – Kaboul – Koscielny – Baines
    Valencia – CAM Kagawa – Ramirez – Ashley Young
    Defoe – Hernandez

    The team works for me. A lot, i had a trouble with Kagawa, he is good but the CM version of him costs like 14k!! and as a CAM just 3k. So i can’t have him in his major form but it’s not very bad. But i will regret with this thread later.

    My biggest problem now is Ramirez. He is obviosly good but everytime he is with Low fitness. I put him on Reserves some matches when he was bad, then i put him again when he was with perfect fitness and morale and after 1 match he was bad again. I can’t afford fitness cards everytime and Ramirez is currently being a pretty dissapointment right now. He is like the biggest star i have and i can’t enjoy him. I can’t afford Yaya.. by the way.

    What do i should do? Buy Tioté? I was reading he was like a mini Yaya. Fellaini is the bench of Ramirez and i just don’t like him.
    And which player can you recommend for a more ofensive CM? the bench of Kagawa is Milner. He is good but i feel i lose some explosion when he is playing. Doesn’t fit in my playstyle (Pretty agresive attacking, fast recuperation of the ball when i lost it and always being in my oponnent’s side of the field.)

    I think that’s all. I would reallly apreciate your answer 🙂 Great blog, i love it!!

    Oh, i don’t have a very good budget right now.. so i would apreciate cheap players (not very cheap.. like 5-10k is good)
    I play on ps3.

    • Hi.
      Thanks for your comment.
      Sometimes a player can be very good but can’t fit in our team. In that case, the important is to try another one.
      The best choice to replace him is Toure but he is too expensive to your wallet. If you don’t like Fellaini, you don’t have many more options. Tioté seems to be the right guy but you will need to find a CM Tioté since he is CDM. He is a good player.
      There is another player that we are a bit curious to know how he plays. We never tried him and we don’t have feedback of him, but he has great stats: Sandro UP. We can’t suggest him but if anyone have a opinion about him we really love to know.
      About a more offensive CM you can try Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere or Mikel Arteta.

          • Hi again.

            I tested Sandro. He is good, but that’s all. He has good short passes and in that way he is very good to control the game. He has a bad dribling and is a bit slow and weak with the ball on his feets. But the most important thing is that you just can’t use him as a more defensive CM. For some reason he is often out of position and he was not a help in my defense. And he is not very good attacking.. by the way.

            So, i bought Tioté and he is just perfect. He is always in the right position in the right time. He helps a lot in defense and he is an option to attack too, he is everywhere in the pitch. And he is very agile. He just don’t feel like 77 Pace, it feels almost as fast as Ramirez. His tackle and recuperation of the ball is awesome too.

            I had an idea and i put Tioté and Ramirez. That was just insane. Amazing control of the ball, speed and the two were defending and attacking at the same time. Ramirez more offensive.
            Is just great 🙂

            Thank you for your advices!!

  184. Is this a good team and how can i improve it:
    GK-Joe Hart
    LB-Ashley Cole
    CB-Vincent Kompany, John Terry
    RM-Antonio Valencia
    CM-Yaya Toure
    CAM- Luis Suarez,Juan Mata
    LM-Ashley Young
    ST-Sergio Aguero

    The formation is a 4-5-1
