Best PL Starter Team in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team
We have created the best PL starter squad in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team by selecting players based on attributes and affordability. With these recommended players, you'll have a competitive team ready to take on the finest players in the game.
Goalkeeper: Nick Pope (84)
Begin with a solid goalkeeper, and Nick Pope is the ideal choice. Standing at 6'6", his height offers a significant advantage. He has a decent 84 overall rating and remains affordable. He should maintain reasonable value.
Center-Backs: Van De Ven (78) and Joe Gomez (79)
For your defense, consider Van De Ven, with impressive sprint speed and a towering 6'4" frame. For the second CB, go for Gomez, who still offers solid defensive attributes despite some nerfs. Both can anchor your defense effectively.
Right-Back: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (83)
Finding an affordable right-back in the PL can be challenging, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka fits the bill. With an 83 overall rating, he might not dazzle on paper, but his in-game performance is exceptional. Wan-Bissaka boasts an impressive 87 sprint speed and possesses slide tackle, anticipation, and rapid playstyle attributes. His agility and balance make him a reliable option for defending and contributing to attacks.
Left-Back: Alex Moreno (80) or Udogie (77)
Similar to the RB choices, the left-back position is tricky due to limited affordable options. Alex Moreno is a solid choice. Alternatively, you can consider Iyenoma Destiny Udogie, a reliable and budget-friendly option with good height and stamina.
Midfield: Joelinton (82) and Matheus Nunes (79)
In common formations, Joe Linton's physicality, passing, and defensive prowess make him a versatile choice for the midfield. Standing at 6'1" with an 81 sprint speed, he excels in both defense and attack. You can partner him with Matheus Nunes, another affordable option with an 86 sprint speed. His box-to-box capabilities make him valuable in the midfield, helping create and prevent opportunities.
Right Midfield: Leon Bailey (79)
For the right midfield position, Leon Bailey stands out with his incredible pace. Although his face stats might not seem impressive, his in-game attributes make him a formidable winger. With high sprint speed, acceleration, agility, balance, and the dribbler and technical playstyle, he's an ideal choice for attacking down the right flank.
Left Midfield/Attack: Luis Diaz (84) or Kaoru Mitoma (80)
In attack, you can go for Luis Diaz. While he can be expensive, it will be a long-term investment. He has good Weak Foot and Skill Moves ratings and his technical playstyle make him a flexible option for either a winger or striker role. His finishing ability and pace make him a goal-scoring threat. A good and cheaper alternative is Kaoru Mitoma.
Striker: Amaut Danjuma (81) and Cody Gakpo (83)
Danjuma, with his power shot and rapid playstyle, is a strong striker option. He can also interchange with Diaz, adding versatility to your attack. If you have a second striker slot, you can go for Gakpo. He is a well-rounded player with good finishing, pace and physicality stats.
That sums up all the players you can get in your starter Premier League squad.
