FIFA 18 Best Squad Guide

For all those players who plan to build the FIFA 18 best squad possible, no matter what chemistry they get, we’ve conducted an analysis on the best players.

Introduction to the FIFA 18 Best Squad Guide


Building a team is the biggest challenge in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. It doesn’t need to be the best team, this is because the budget may not allow it, but it needs to be the player’s stature for him to obtain success.

When choosing which players to play with, you will have to look carefully at their attributes. Choosing a team based on ratings is one of the most common mistakes on FUT 18. It’s precisely this aspect that this guide focuses on. For each position, and focusing on the truly important attributes, we’ll show you who are the best athletes to choose.

It’s also important that the player checks to see if the player he chooses fits the formations he likes to play in. For example, a good full back will be useless if the player only uses a formation with three defenders. According to these formations, the player must be cautious and look at the work rate.

This time we will not care to chemistry. The goal is to select the best players of each position, no matter how they link each other. This article aims to help those that want to form the FIFA 18 best squad possible.

Another important point and that must stay very clear is that whoever is reading this guide, it’s about some criteria we chose and should be of everyone’s knowledge:

✔️ Only Gold Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider silver or bronze player. Most players don’t assume them to be a better option than gold players, so to simplify the guide’s analysis we didn’t include them.

✔️ Only Regular Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider In Forms (IF) or special cards. They’re extremely expensive and in most cases are not considered good value for money. They should only be used by players with generous budgets, that already have the best team possible and that want small upgrades.

✔️ Only Normal Players
In this guide, we didn’t consider players that have been reviewed (UP).

✔️ Only Original Attributes
In this guide, we didn’t consider changes made in a player’s performance such happens when applying training or chemistry styles cards.

✔️ Fluctuation of Prices
We added a link to the suggested squad where you can check anytime the updated prices.
