Since FIFA began, one stat has been the most important: pace. If you’ve got a team full of rapid players, you don’t have to worry about much else because you’ll be able to run past the other side. In a way, it’s one of FIFA’s main flaws. They’ve tried to make it less important in recent years but the fact of the matter is, pace is nearly always crucial. Who are the FIFA 19 fastest players? Look no further, for these are the ten fastest players in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team.
10. Jonathan Biabiany
Biabiany’s been a staple of many pace-focused FIFA teams over the years, and that won’t stop with FIFA 19. His 94 pace and 77 dribbling make him the ideal choice in a French or Serie A silver team. He only has three-star skill moves though, so don’t attempt any rainbow flicks.
9. Jonas Aguirre
Another silver, Jonas Aguirre is an Argentinian playing in the Argentina Primera Division. As such, he won’t gel with most squads unless you focus on that league/nation, but his 94 pace may convince you to do just that. Again, he’s only got two-star skill moves though, so the best you’re going to get from him is a heavy touch or a ball roll.
8. Rashad Muhammed
The only bronze player in the top 10, Muhammed is a French striker playing in the Norwegian Eliteserien. If you’re making a French bronze team, this guy is a must have; his shooting stat isn’t great, but 94 pace means he’ll be able to get himself into positions where his shooting doesn’t matter. Plus he’s got a four-star weak foot.
The only American in the Swiss Super League, Manneh is one of a kind. 94 pace and 72 dribbling mean he’s a monster when converted to LW, especially in a silver only squad. He’s got a four-star weak foot and three-star skills so if you want to make an American team, get Manneh in.
6. Douglas Costa
Now we’re in the big leagues. Douglas Costa is one of the best players in the game, and if you can build your squad around him, you won’t be disappointed. 95 pace and 91 dribbling combined with five-star skill moves make him one of the best players in Ultimate Team this year.
5. Gareth Bale
Of course, Gareth Bale is in the top five. The Welsh wizard has 95 pace and 88 shooting along with four-star skills, so he’s a must-have for any La Liga squad. Or you could pick up Aaron Ramsey, Ben Davies, and Joe Allen to kick-start a Welsh team.
4. Leroy Sane
Manchester City’s German winger may not play every game for them, but he deserves to play every match for your Ultimate Team. 95 pace, 86 dribbling, and four-star skill moves make him a hot prospect for any Premier League team.
3. Jurgen Damm
Damm, he’s quick! Jurgen Damm is a Mexican right midfielder with 95 pace. Sadly he’s rated 75, so he won’t fit into any silver squads but is ideal if you’re making a Liga MX squad.
2. Kylian Mbappe
What?! Mbappe isn’t the fastest player?! It’s crazy, but PSG’s young world beater is second on the list. His 96 pace and 89 dribbling combined with five-star skill moves mean he’s going to cost a pretty penny, but if you get him, it’s more than worth building your entire team around him.
1. Adama Traore
The fastest player in FIFA 19… plays for Wolverhampton Wanderers?! Believe it or not, Adama Traore beats out Kylian Mbappe by having one extra point in acceleration. He’s also boasting four-star skill moves so while he’s probably quite expensive, Adama is the fastest player you can get in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team.
