EA Sports have rolled out the list of players who will feature 5-star skill ratings in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, so let’s get into it and take a look at who the most skillful players in the new game will be.

Most of the time when looking at a player in FIFA, the first thing people check is their overall stats, but if you really want to build an unstoppable squad, you’ll want players with a high skill rating as well.

Individual skills in FIFA 20 are broken down into tiers, rated from one to five stars, with players graded on their technical abilities and given a rating suitable for their quality.

While most players will be able to do the basic-level skill moves – ones that require one to three stars, only the best of the best in that department can execute the more advanced techniques.

FIFA 21 will have a wide range of 5-Star players from across the world.

When it comes to top-tier skill moves, there’s actually only a handful of cards that have the necessary five stars and strong enough stats to be usable in the best squads; usually either a stacked card will not have five-star skills or a five-star skiller won’t have the best stats.

That’s why the top-rated skill players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Mbappe, Pogba, and others are definitely set to be a precious commodity in FIFA 21 for those of us who have mastered the ins and outs of the game, so let’s take a look at who are the most skilled players in FIFA 21 this year.

Many of these cards are underwhelming, but there are definitely some gems in here. Luis Alberto and Kimmich will add a defensive midfield presence to any German or Bundesliga team and should go for a good price.

Premier League fans can also rejoice in seeing Zaha, with a 92 pace, as well as Joe Gomez on this list. Make sure to check all these new cards out on the market to see how they are doing over the next week.

Team of the Week 5 start time

On October 28, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the fifth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year’s annual release. The promo began at around 6pm (UK time), as per usual. That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted player upgrades are now announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, so no more getting a look ahead at the squad hours before it’s made available.

Palace's talismanic winger Wilfred Zaha had a hand in both his team's goals against Aston Villa.
