The 11 best cheap Premier League players on FIFA 19
CM: Idrissa Gueye
Potential Cost: 2.7k
Regarded as the poor man’s N'Golo Kante due to his superb defensive stats, Gueye is a FIFA 19 bargain. His ability to intercept the ball and make standing tackles are rated 86 and 89 respectively; with a shadow chemistry style, both stats nearly get maxed out.
He’s average in front of goal, though, so make sure that Gueye's job in your team is limited to regaining possession and marking opposition midfielders.
CM: Abdoulaye Doucoure
Potential Cost: 1.6k
Unlike Gueye, Doucoure has decent shooting stats and is therefore a threat around the opposition box. His agility isn't great, but he makes up for that with 83 physicality which allows him to play a box-to-box role alongside the more defence-minded Everton man.
RW: Xherdan Shaqiri
Potential Cost: 3k
Shaqiri possesses sublime dribbling and passing skills on FIFA 19, while his five-star skill moves allow him to perform the El Tornado trick - flicking the ball up and unleashing a fierce volley.
The Swiss is best used with a dead-eye chemistry style, which bumps his shooting and passing up to 88 and 87 respectively.
CAM: Manuel Lanzini
Potential Cost: 2k
West Ham’s Argentine wizard is by far the best-value attacking midfielder in the Premier League. A passing rating of 78 combined with his terrific dribbling stats make him the ideal No.10 for your team, particularly as his 39 strength means he could get overpowered in a deeper role.
Lanzini is a four-star skiller, so if your opponent makes use of the constant pressure tactical option, you can easily go past defenders with skill moves such as La Croqueta or the Ronaldo Chop.
LW: Andre Schurrle
Potential Cost: 1.4k
The cheapest pacey left winger on FUT is Marcus Rashford, who costs 32,000 coins. Schurrle is available for a fraction of that price, and is a brilliant option for those counting the pennies.
Pace isn't as important on FIFA 19 as it was in previous editions, so the German is still effective despite being slower than many of his fellow wide men. Schurrle's shooting is his standout stat, and it rises as high as 93 - together with 86 dribbling - if you use a sniper chemistry style.
ST: Marko Arnautovic
Potential Cost: 5.3k
Despite possessing the same overall rating as FIFA 18, Arnautovic’s stats are much better this year than last. He’s also been made into a striker having been re-deployed up front by West Ham last term.
Target men are more useful than ever - and at 6ft 4in and with four-star skill moves, Arnautovic is one of the best in the league. Able to both run in behind and receive the ball to feet with his back to goal, the former Stoke man is also a threat in the air with his heading accuracy. A dead-eye chemistry style and 93 finishing rating means he's clinical in the 18-yard box.
