We’ve put you together a 40,000 coins squad that has pace, strength and flair, with players like Jadon Sancho, Eder Militao and Kevin Mbabu.

We set up in the 4-3-3 (3) formation with 2 CDMs and a CM. A pretty standard formation, but we’ve added a bit of a twist – keep reading to find out what…

Alphonse Areola (OVR 82)

Age: 26

Position: GK

Club: Real Madrid

Country: France

Best stats: 85 diving, 84 reflexes, 80 kicking

Cost: 1,400 PS4 / 1,500 Xbox One

Alphonse Areola recently signed for Real Madrid, on loan from French giants PSG. Because of this, he has two cards in the game, but for this squad we opt for his Real Madrid version.

A top goalkeeper, Areola has stats in all the right places. For 1,500 coins, a real bargain. Keep him on a Basic chemistry style for the best results. 

Eder Militao (OVR 81)

Age: 21

Position: CB

Club: Real Madrid

Country: Brazil

Best stats: 80 sprint speed, 88 stamina, 81 reactions

Cost: 6,600 PS4 / 7,700 Xbox One

The Brazilian defender signed for Real Madrid from Porto in the summer, and has yet to fully break into the squad at the Bernabeu. Despite this, Eder Militao is probably the best CB in the game for his price, with stats that are arguably ‘Icon level’.

80 sprint speed speaks for itself, and with 88 stamina he will keep going until the final whistle. Use a Shadow or Anchor chemistry style to boost his pace, and you’ll never want to use another centre back again!

Manuel Akanji (OVR 83)

Age: 24

Position: CB

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Country: Swizerland

Best stats: 85 sprint speed, 84 strength, 80 composure

Cost: 3,100 PS4 / 4,000 Xbox One

Manuel Akanji signed for Dortmund during the January 2018 transfer window, for a reported 18 million euros. Since then he has shone in the Bundesliga.

His FUT card is as equally ‘shiny’. 85 sprint speed is simply incredible for a card of his price, and with 84 strength and 80 composure, he wins most challenges. Give him an Anchor chemistry card and boost his stats to the moon.

Considering he was 30,000 coins this time last month, his current price is an absolute bargain.

Junior Firpo (OVR 79)

Age: 23

Position: LB

Club: FC Barcelona

Country: Spain

Best stats: 85 pace, 81 crossing, 81 stamina

Cost: 800 PS4 / 950 Xbox One

Junior Firpo burst onto the scene in the summer after signing for Barcelona from Real Betis in a deal in excess of 30 million euros. And what a player he is turning out to be.

Firpo’s FUT card lives up to expectation too, with 85 pace, and 81 stamina, you can run him up and down the wing all day long. Give him an Anchor chemistry style and boost his pace to 90, his defence to 84, and his physical to 81. For only 800 coins, he’s an obvious choice.

Kevin Mbabu (OVR 77)

Age: 24

Position: RB

Club: Wolfsburg

Country: Swizerland

Best stats: 90 acceleration, 92 sprint speed, 91 stamina

Cost: 1,700 PS4 / 2,100 Xbox One

We call upon the talents of Wolfsburg’s Kevin Mbabu at right back, and it’s easy to see why he makes the team. He is fast, strong and has incredible stamina. 

His regular Gold card is currently worth 2,000 coins, but if you have a few hours you can unlock his Road To The Final card via the Objectives hub – this gives you an 81 rated live version essentially for free. Definitely worth the effort for a card this good.

Arturo Vidal (OVR 84)

Age: 32

Position: CDM

Club: FC Barcelona

Country: Chile

Best stats: 93 aggression, 86 stamina, 87 standing tackle

Cost: 3,600 PS4 / 4,600 Xbox One

Everyone knows what Arturo Vidal is all about. A proper, old fashioned defensive midfielder, who loves a tackle.

His FUT card is no different, and is easily one of the best players in his position, with 85 defending, 86  physical, and 80 passing. Give him a Shadow chemistry style and boost his pace and defending to 80 and 93, then set him to Stay Back While Attacking and tackle, tackle tackle!
