For a lot of players in FIFA 21, pace is a huge factor when deciding whether to pick up a footballer for a certain position. So, it’s key you know exactly which players are the fastest in each respective position to create the best squad possible.
The game becomes much easier when you’ve got players who can bomb it down the wings and past defenders with relative ease, and they often become players you can build your team around. This is especially true if they’re in top leagues or from certain countries for the additional chemistry links.
As much as speed is important in the attacking positions, it’s also absolutely key for defenders to be able to keep up with top-class wingers and strikers. That’s why we’ve put together a set of lists that go over the fastest attackers, defenders, and midfielders across FIFA 21.
Fastest Attackers in FIFA 21
If you’re looking to build a strong attack in FIFA 21, a fundamental aspect of that is players with a lot of speed. The ability to beat a man and get in front of goal is key and all of these players are capable of doing exactly that:
|Kim In Seong||71||94|
|Hwang Hee Chan||77||93|
While pace isn’t prioritized in midfield as much as it is in the attack, it’s still an important trait for a central player to have. Having one of these players in your midfielder could have a huge impact on your starting XI:
|Rafa Ferreira Silva||83||94|
|Kim In Seong||71||94|
With so many speedy attackers, its key defenders can keep up and win the ball back for their team. This is especially true when it comes to wing-backs, so make sure you include a few of these players in your squad to keep your defense as fast as possible:
Obviously, there are a lot of players here that are unlikely to make it into your Ultimate Team. Yet, players like Mbappe, Mane, Davies, and Vinicius Jr very much match the type of players you want: among the best in their position, fast, and a great combination of league/nationality or both.
That said, there are a lot of players there that could be useful if pace is as important as it has been in past games, and you don’t have the funds to pick up the big names. Players like Adama Traore, Daniel James, and Hakimi could still be solid choices while you’re building your team.
Good luck with building your squad and don’t forget to follow us @UltimateTeamUk.
