So you don't have to go through the hassle of searching name by name, we've brought you the top 10 players for each position. Grab your clipboard and start building your lineup!



goalkeepers

Full name Overall Potential Age Time
De Gea 91 93 28 Mancherster United
Hugo Lloris 88 88 32 Tottenham
Alisson 87 91 26 Liverpool
Ederson 86 90 25 Manchester City
Kepa 84 90 24 Chelsea
Jordan Pickford 83 88 25 Everton
Bernd Leno 83 86 27 Arsenal
Rui Patrício 83 83 31 Wolves
Kasper Schmeichel 83 83 32 Leicester City
Łukasz Fabiański 82 82 34 West Ham

Nobody disputes that De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, as he is the number 1 position in the entire FIFA 19. The other three names after the Spanish archer, however, also deserve attention. Lloris and Alisson are prominent names, but mainly the latter, for his potential and for being a new player with a good career ahead of him.



right sides

Full name Overall Potential Age Time
Azpilicueta 85 85 29 Chelsea
Kyle Walker 84 84 28 Manchester City
Ricardo Pereira 81 84 25 Leicester City
Kieran Trippier 81 81 28 Tottenham
Trent alexander-arnold 80 89 20 Liverpool
Héctor Bellerín 80 85 24 Arsenal
Serge Aurier 80 82 26 Tottenham
Davide Zappacosta 79 81 26 Chelsea
Danilo 79 80 27 Manchester City
Seamus Coleman 79 79 30 Everton

Azpilicueta has been at Chelsea for many seasons. From edit to edit it only grows in terms of Overall, so you should really pay attention to it. Although he is not very fast, he is technical and has good passing. Bellerín, despite being further down the list, is a full-back and a high-speed winger. If he likes attacking full-backs, he might be a good name for your team.



left sides

Full name Overall Potential Age Time
Aymeric Laporte 86 89 24 Manchester City
Andrew Robertson 83 88 25 Liverpool
Marcos Alonso 83 83 28 Chelsea
Luke Shaw 81 85 23 Manchester United
Benjamin Mendy 81 86 24 Manchester City
Lucas Digne 81 85 25 Everton
Danny Rose 81 81 28 Tottenham
James milner 81 81 33 Liverpool
Sead Kolasinac 80 83 25 Arsenal
Ben Davies 80 82 26 Tottenham

Laporte plays both at the back and on the side. He has a pretty high Overall for a winger, but don't be fooled, since he's slower, since he's a defender by origin. The other left sides of the list are interesting in terms of speed and potential. If you look closely, most are young, so they can evolve well over the course of their careers and seasons.



defenders

Full name Overall Potential Age Time
Virgil van Dijk 89 91 27 Liverpool
Toby Alderweireld 87 87 30 Tottenham
Jan Vertonghen 87 87 32 Chelsea
Aymeric Laporte 86 89 24 Manchester City
Azpilicueta 85 85 29 Chelsea
Nicolas Otamendi 84 84 31 Manchester City
Sokratis 84 84 30 Arsenal
Vincent Kompany 83 84 33 Manchester City
Davinson Sanchez 83 87 22 Tottenham
John Stones 83 87 24 Manchester City

Premier League defenders are tall, strong and good at marking. The ten best defenders in the English league are distributed among the main teams, which is inevitable. Otamendi, Kompany, Sokratis, for example, were once among the best defenders in FIFA. Although they have lost a bit of Overall, they are still interesting and quality names.

Full name Overall Potential Age Time
N'Golo Kanté 89 90 28 Chelsea
Fernandinho 87 87 33 Manchester City
Fabinho 85 89 33 Liverpool

Naby keïta 83 88 24 Liverpool
Idrissa Gueye 83 83 29 Everton
Nemanja Matíc 83 83 30 Manchester United
Georginio Wijnaldum 83 83 28 Liverpool
Lucas Torreira 82 87 23 Arsenal
Ander Herrera 82 82 22 Leicester City

Kanté is by far the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League and is next to the big names in the position of the entire FIFA 19. After him, players are losing a lot of Overall, unfortunately. Despite not being on the same level as Kanté, Fabinho and Fernandinho are good investments and good signings for any team.

Kevin de bruyne 91 92 27 Manchester City

Jesse Lingard 82 83 26 Manchester United
Xerdan Shaqiri 82 82 27 Liverpool
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 82 82 30 Arsenal

The Premier League is filled with great midfielders. De Bruyne is the best of them, followed by the geniuses David Silva and Pogba. We cannot forget the veteran Özil and the young our language Bernardo Silva. There are styles of play for all tastes in the top 10 England midfielders.

Eden Hazard 91 91 28 Chelsea

Anthony Martial 84 90 23 Manchester United
William 84 84 30 Chelsea
Marcus Rashford 83 90 21 Manchester United
Alexis Sanchez 83 83 30 Manchester United

With two names on the list, we can say that Liverpool are very well served with wingers. Salah and Mané have a great Overall and still have an evolution in Potential. Hazard, of course, is still the big name in the position. If you want new blood, there's Martial and Sterling. And let's not forget the elders Sánchez and Willian.

Strikers

Full name Overall Potential Age Time
Harry Kane 90 92 25 Tottenham
Sergio Agüero 89 89 30 Manchester City
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 88 88 29 Arsenal
Roberto Firmino 86 87 27 Liverpool
Romelu Lukaku 86 88 25 Manchester United
Alexandre Lacazette 85 86 27 Arsenal
Gabriel Jesus 83 90 22 Manchester City
Jamie Vardy 82 82 32 Leicester City
Marko Arnautović 82 82 30 West Ham
Olivier Giroud 82 82 32 Chelsea

Harry Kane rose very quickly in his career at Tottenham. In FIFA 19 he surpassed Agüero and Aubameyang as the best striker in the game. If you want faster and lighter names, there is the Frenchman Lacazette and our countryman Gabriel Jesus, one of the most promising in the game. And let's not forget the near-legendary Jamie Vardy, who has given Leicester City an unforgettable title in previous seasons.
