FIFA 21 Career Mode: Best Young LBs to Sign

Need some young blood at the back? Here are ALL the best young left backs (LB) for you to sign in Career Mode.


Following tradition, the best left backs of FIFA 21 don’t have particularly high overall ratings, with 87 OVR being the pinnacle at the start of Career Mode.

However, for anyone looking to develop a player into being one of the best at LB or LWB, a couple of the best young left backs in FIFA 21 have the potential to reach top-class ratings.


These are ALL the best young left backs (LBs and LWBs) to sign to your FIFA 21 Career Mode team.

Choosing FIFA 21 Career Mode’s best young LB (Left Backs & Left Wing Backs)

On this page, you’ll find the best young left backs and left wing backs of FIFA 21 sorted by their overall rating as of the start of the game.

To get onto the list, the players have to be 23-years-old or younger, have LB or LWB as their preferred position, and have an overall rating of at least 76 OVR.

Also included are each of the potential ratings of the best young left backs, so that you know how far your investment will grow over the seasons to come.

For a full list of ALL of the best young LB in FIFA 21, view the table towards the end of the page.

Sergio Reguilón (82 OVR – 89 POT)

Team: Tottenham Hotspur
Best Position: LWB, LB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 82 OVR / 89 POT
Value: £52 million
Wage: £77,000 per week
Best Attributes: 87 Sprint Speed, 82 Acceleration, 81 Ball Control

Tottenham Hotspur created one of the transfer stories of the summer by bringing back Gareth Bale, and yet, arguably the better part of the deal with Real Madrid was that they got their hands on Sergio Reguilón.

Now 23-years-old, Reguilón was sent out on-loan to Sevilla last season, playing 38 games, scoring three goals, and setting up five more to help the club win the Europa League.

Sergio Reguilón is the best young LB in FIFA 21, boasting a hefty potential rating of 89 POT – so the Spaniard is well worth playing as a first-team regular.

Being left-footed, the Spurs full-back is best deployed at left back or left wing back, but he can also be used on the right if needed, thanks to his three-star weak foot. Some of his best ratings include his 87 sprint speed, 82 acceleration, 79 crossing, 78 dribbling, and 78 sliding tackle.

Alphonso Davies (81 OVR – 89 POT)

Team: Bayern Munich
Best Position: LWB, LB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 89 POT
Value: £47.5 million
Wage: £35,500 per week
Best Attributes: 96 Acceleration, 96 Sprint Speed, 85 Agility

Having impressed a great deal for the Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS, Bayern Munich decided to see how the Canadian wonderkid would perform on the European stage, with the move costing them a mere £9 million.

Despite being known as a promising young player, few expected the impact that Alphonso Davies made on the Bundesliga champions. As a teenager, he achieved what many would have seen as impossible last season: uproot one of the best left backs in the world, David Alaba, and force them to play at centre back.

In FIFA 21, Davies’ overall rating of 81 doesn’t reflect his incredible performances en route to helping Die Roten win the league, cup, and Champions League – but his 89 POT helps to paint a more accurate picture.

Speed is the primary asset of this top young left back in Career Mode, with Davies boasting 96 acceleration, 96 sprint speed, 85 agility, 82 balance, and 85 dribbling.

Renan Lodi (81 OVR – 87 POT)

Team: Atlético Madrid
Best Position: LM, LWB, LB, RB, RWB, RM
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 87 POT
Value: £35 million
Wage: £44,000 per week
Best Attributes: 85 Acceleration, 84 Stamina, 83 Sprint Speed

In what turned out to be one of the savviest transfers in La Liga last summer, Atlético Madrid signed who would turn out to immediately become their first-choice left back for just £18 million.

Renan Lodi didn’t enjoy the best of starts, picking up two bookings in his first La Liga game, but he started as soon as the suspension was lifted and went on to play 43 games for Atlético and make his international debut.

Coming into Career Mode as one of the best young left backs to sign, Lodi’s strong attributes are bolstered further by his four-star skill moves and high attacking work rate.

The Brazilian’s best attributes include his 85 acceleration, 84 stamina, 83 agility, 83 sprint speed, 82 balance, 81 ball control, and 81 crossing.

Ben Chilwell (81 OVR – 85 POT)

Team: Chelsea
Best Position: LWB, LB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 85 POT
Value: £31 million
Wage: £71,000 per week
Best Attributes: 88 Stamina, 82 Jumping, 82 Slide Tackle

After joining the Leicester City academy at 12-years-old from Rushden & Diamonds, Ben Chilwell worked his way up to the first-team, properly claiming the left back role as his own in the 2017/18 season.

With 123 games, four goals, and 12 assists for the Foxes, the notoriously stubborn club decided that Chelsea’s bid of £45 million was enough for them to part ways with the 23-year-old Englishman.

Chilwell’s best asset on the pitch and in FIFA 21 is his work rate. In the game, this is relayed by his high defensive and attacking work rate, 88 stamina, 82 jumping, and 82 sliding tackle.

Despite ranking as one of the best young left backs in the game, Chilwell only has an 81 overall rating and tops-out at 85 if he fulfils his potential.

Welington Dano (81 OVR – 81 POT)

Team: Free Agent
Best Position: LWB, LB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 81 OVR / 81 POT
Value: £24 million
Wage: £9,600 per week
Best Attributes: 89 Stamina, 83 Agility, 83 Curve

Due to eFootball PES having the licensing rights to the Brazilian leagues and its players, FIFA 21 doesn’t feature any of the real best young players in Brazil. Instead, there are some generated players like Welington Dano available.

If you want to get your hands on Welington Dano in FIFA 21, your first move has to be to try to sign the free agent.

Simulations have seen the Brazilian left back go to AZ Alkmaar and CD Leganés within a day, with his wages clocking in at just under £10,000 per week.

Valued at £24 million upon signing, the young left back is worth picking up, even if it’s just for resale value. That said, Dano’s 89 stamina, 83 agility, 82 crossing, 83 curve, 81 balance, and 81 sliding tackle make him quite a user-friendly player to have on the pitch.
