The 10 most overpowered players on FIFA 19

Share this on

It’s the ideal time to play FIFA 19.

The weather is awful, it’s the international break, and to be honest, FIFA is amazing at any time of the year.

So, with that in mind, and the new game having just been released, we’ve taken a look at the ten players who could well be hidden gems for your team.

You might even be able to pick them up cheaply, and we’ve got ten who are overpowered players, with position-specific stats that are high – but their other stats aren’t necessarily, bringing their overall rating down.

QUINCY PROMES (SEVILLA)

The left sided midfielder is a great FIFA pick. Considering his sprint speed (91) and acceleration (89), he’s set to win any race. He also has stamina (83) unlike some wingers, and it matches his electric pace. 

RICARDO PEREIRA (LEICESTER)

His overall rating is (81) – one below the likes of Trippier and Antonio Valencia. It’s also worth noting his dribbling is 83 and his sprint speed is 87.

His tackling and interceptions aren’t great – but in terms of attacking ability, he’s right up there.

MOUSSA MAREGA (PORTO)

In terms of pure power in the penalty area, there are few better. Marega has a high sprint speed (88), positioning (84) and shot power (86), along with good strength (88) and heading ability that stands out (81).

If you want someone to come off the bench and chase long balls, he’s the man.

AYMERIC LAPORTE (MAN CITY)

The Man City man may have pace at just 65, but considering FIFA 19 has made players’ dribbling speed lower than in previous editions, that isn’t an issue.

In fact, it means he will recover quicker. He also has impressive  stats in terms of the rest of his defending, with interceptions (85), standing tackle (86), sliding tackle (85) and marking (84).

GEOFFREY KONDOGBIA (INTER)

His overall rating is 82, but in terms of looking for a partner for a more creative, classy player in your midfield, Kondogbia is the man.

He boasts strength (91), interceptions (84) and standing tackle (85), and has shot power (86) that’s also impressive in terms of going forward.

XHERDAN SHAQIRI (LIVERPOOL)

Wingers without blistering pace are more useful on FIFA 19 than any other edition. Shaqiri might suffer in the pace department, but more than makes up for it with excellent balance (91), curve (88) and dribbling (86). He also boasts high shot power (87), dribbling (86) and agility (84) that are far better than his price tag and overall rating would suggest.

FELIPE ANDERSON (WEST HAM)

He’s actually quite expensive due to his great start to life in England, so holding off until his form drops in real life could be a good tactic here.

His stats of high ball control (89) speed (90), shot power (84), agility (89), balance (88) and dribbling (90) are really impressive.

HULK (SHANGHAI SIPG)

Another great option as a sub. His pace may have dropped, along with his reputation now he’s playing in China, but great shot power (94), strength (92) and long shots (90) have all made him a fan favourite on FIFA once again.

ALLAN (NAPOLI)

An overall rating of just 82 doesn’t tell the whole story here.

His interceptions (86), reactions (86), marking (85), standing tackle (85) and aggression (85), mixed with dribbling (82) and short passing (82) make him a great pick, and mean he’s one of the most overpowered players in the game.

CESC FABREGAS (CHELSEA)

Cesc has been overlooked this season by Chelsea boss Sarri, making him a bargain buy at the minute.

He’s poor physically – strength (61) or stamina (60) –  but has great vision (91), short passing (90), composure (92) and long passing (89), meaning he’s a good pick with the right players around him to pick up the extra physical work.

It is of course the international break, and the Republic of Ireland are 60/1 to beat Denmark.
