The 5 best FIFA 23 budget Premier League full-backs

FIFA 23 is now finally here! The game is available to play on a 10- hour trial via EA access from the 23rd of September.


Those who have pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition of the game can then start playing the full game from the 27th of September, whilst the full game is out for those who buy the standard edition from the 30th of September.

One of the biggest selling points of the FIFA franchise is, of course, Ultimate Team. This is a game mode within FIFA that allows players to create their ultimate team, hence the name, through buying players on the transfer market within the game, earning them through objectives or buying packs with either FIFA points or in-game coins.

Best budget Premier League fullbacks on FIFA Ultimate Team

The key to having a successful Ultimate Team throughout the game cycle generally starts with an effective budget team.

The Premier League is one of the most popular leagues to build your starter team with, due to the number of quality players across the division as well as its popularity within the real world.

And now, ahead of the full launch of FIFA 23, 101 highlighted the best cheap Premier League full-backs on Ultimate Team this year.

1. Djed Spence (RWB- 79)

If your focus up and down the flanks is pace and pace alone, then you can stop reading now and buy Tottenham’s newest full back Djed Spence.

Though he only has 67 defending and 63 physical, he has a massive 89 pace, making him the fastest full-back in the division, while he also has 74 dribbling to his name. As a common gold card, he should be cheap and can certainly do a job for the opening few games.

2. Tyrell Malacia (LB- 79)

New to the Premier League, Malacia has been given a very good base card for his first season at Manchester United.

The Dutchman has been handed 85 pace, along with 76 in both defending and physical. Going forwards, he will be a threat too, with 77 dribbling, including 84 agility, meaning that he should be able to be effective in both penalty areas at the beginning of the game.

3. Kieran Tierney (LB- 81)

If Malacia isn’t what you are after, then Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney could be one to keep an eye on. The Scottish left-back is better on the face of it than the United man, with 84 pace combined with 76 defending and 79 physical.

It is going forwards that he may excel, however, with 78 dribbling along with 75 passing, meaning that he could be a more reliable option than Malacia.

4. Nelson Semedo (RB- 80)

If Spence does not take your fancy, Semedo is more of an all round option. The Wolves man has less pace than Spence, but still has a respectable 83 to his name, while he also has 80 dribbling and four-star skills, both of which could be useful going forwards.

He is decent defensively too, with 75 defending and 74 physical, while because he is just 80 rated he should be quite cheap to pick up early in the game.

5. Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB-80)

Not able to get off the bench for Manchester United in real life, Wan-Bissaka could find his way into your side with a very respectable card on FIFA23.

The Englishman has been given 82 pace, along with 78 defending and 73 physical, including a massive 90 sliding tackling and 84 standing tackle. He may not be the best going forward, with 75 dribbling and an awful 50 shooting, but defensively he will certainly do a job for your side in the early weeks.
