Everybody wants more for less – not least in Ultimate Team, where your money counts and marginal gains could be the difference between success and failure. Luckily for you, Phillip Ekuwem is on hand...

Building a formidable team in FIFA Ultimate Team doesn’t have to cost you tons of time or money. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Ruud Gullit are unfortunately out of reach for the average FUT player, but thankfully there are plenty of cheap beasts in the game capable of excellence for your Ultimate Team.

At this stage in FIFA, you don’t really want obsolete cards that were once considered overpowered upon the game’s release. On that note, we take a look at the most OP players under 20,000 coins – including some unpopular ‘special’ players.

Ralf Fahrmann (GK)

Price: 3.2k

David de Gea is undoubtedly the best goalkeeper in the game, but Ralf Fahrmann isn’t too far off the Spanish shot-stopper.

Schalke’s net-minder is a quality goalkeeper in nearly every aspect, but has a tendency to take inaccurate goal-kicks thanks to his 52 kicking stat. Don’t let that scare you away, though: you can work around that by playing a short pass to your defenders.

Jordan Lukaku (LB)

Price: 1.2k

We’re four months into FIFA 18 and Lukaku Jr. is still one of the most overpowered players in the game. He’s a wall in defence, but also capable of aiding your team going forward thanks to his blistering pace.

He’s very affordable at around 1,200 coins, so you should definitely consider picking him up if you’re short of a quality left-back.

In Form (IF): Lorenzo De Silvestri (RB)

Price: 13k

In Form De Silvestri is undoubtedly one of the best right-backs in FUT. The Torino man appeared in TOTW 17, thus receiving a huge stat boost from his 76-rated non-rare gold card – making him the most OP right-back in the game. He’s pretty much the Italian Antonio Valencia, and at 13k that’s an amazing price.

IF: Martin Hinteregger (CB)

Price: 11.5k

Hinteregger’s inclusion in TOTW 18 was somewhat unexpected, but who cares? Now we now have a cheap alternative to Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis – one of the best CBs in the game.

Augsburg man Hinteregger actually has slightly better stats than Sokratis, making him an absolute tank in defence.
