Who are the Best CM, CDM, CAM in FIFA 21?
Best FIFA 21 CAMs
Kevin De Bruyne is the best central attacking midfielder in FIFA 21 without a doubt. He has consistently been the best attacking fielder in real life for several years now and it also reflects in his in-game stats. Kevin De Bruyne has decent pace, amazing passing, shooting and dribbling stats. Cherry on top is the high attack and defense rates.
Bruno Fernandes comes in 2nd in the best CAM list and the reason for it is his performance for Manchester United in the second half of the season which elevated Man Utd from 6th in the table to 3rd. Bruno Fernandes has 4-star weak foot and skill moves and all stats are well-rounded which makes him a great choice for your Ultimate team.
Finishing up the top 3 is Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller who had an amazing season in real life. Thomas Muller’s strength are is passing and shooting, with high positioning making him a key player in creating chances. He may be slower than most players in the list but his stamina and high work rate will make up for it.
Best FIFA 21 CDMs
Casemiro is the highest rated defensive midfielder in FIFA 21 and rightly so for his performance in recent years. Casemiro is a beast physically with 91 strength and aggression and will fight for the ball always with his high work rates. In defensive stats, he has great interception and defensive awareness which makes him a must have for your team.
Coming second to Casemiro is Joshua Kimmich who was a vital part of Bayern’s treble winning squad. Kimmich is a workhorse with 95 stamina which will keep him running till the end of the game. He has better passing stats than Casemiro as well which makes him a threat in picking passes for counter attacks as well.
Rounding off the podium is N’Golo Kante of Chelsea. Kante is also a workhorse with high stamina but is even better in defensive capabilities. He is also fast moving than Casemiro and Kimmich with high agility and balance as well. High Defensive work rate as well makes him a good choice for the CDM position.
Best FIFA 21 CMs
Toni Kroos is the highest rated central midfielder in FIFA 21. Kroos’ passing and shooting is elite. He is also so good at set pieces. The only drawback is his slow speed but for a central midfielder, it is not that bad. Kroos is not only good in attacking, but also in defending and intercepting the play. A five-star Weak Foot makes him deadly for free kicks from any angle.
Taking the 2nd spot in the best CM list of FIFA 21 is Luka Modric. Luka Modric is a good creative midfielder with high vision and fast passing ability. He also has decent speed and agility and high attacking work rate makes him a great choice to be used as the attacking half in a 2-man central midfield.
Third in the list is Paul Pogba who is the best box to box midfielder in game. Pogba’s is a great attacker and creator from the field. He is great at long shots and can help you get goals from outside the box if given the chance.
