FIFA 21 Career Mode: Best Young Right Backs (RB & RWB) to Sign

If you want to rebuild the right side of your defence with a future star, check out ALL the best young RB and RWB players in FIFA 21 right here.


As is the case with the left backs in FIFA 21, the ratings ceiling coming into the game is rather low, with the best right backs starting with a maximum OVR of 87.

However, with this relatively low bar, plenty of the best young right backs and right wing backs in Career Mode start among the highest-rated in the position.


Here, you can find all of the best young right backs (RBs and RWBs) to sign to your FIFA 21 Career Mode team.

Choosing FIFA 21 Career Mode’s best young RB (Right Backs & Right Wing Backs)

The main rating focussed on to assemble this list of the best young left backs in Career Mode is the starting overall rating of each player.

To get onto the page, each player had to have a preferred position of RB or RWB, be 23-years-old or younger, and have an overall rating of at least 76 OVR.

Also included are each of the potential ratings of the best young right backs so that you know that you’re buying a player who could become one of the best in the world at RB or RWB.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (87 OVR – 92 POT)

Team: Liverpool
Best Position: LM, LWB, LB, RB, RWB, RM
Overall/Potential: 87 OVR / 92 POT
Value: £103 million
Wage: £98,000 per week
Best Attributes: 93 Crossing, 89 Long Passing, 88 Curve

An absolute menace down the right-hand side, Trent Alexander-Arnold has been a major piece of Liverpool’s ravenous attack, notching another four goals and 15 assists last season.

The right back has an incredible knack for surging up the line to deliver pin-point crosses. He’s also known to stop deeper to send stretching passes into the deadly trio, and to create high-quality scoring opportunities from dead balls.

Alexander-Arnold comes into FIFA 21’s Career Mode as the best young right back and the joint-best full-back, accompanying teammate Andy Robertson on an 87 overall rating.

The English defender’s best attribute ratings are found in his 93 crossing, 88 curve 85 free-kick accuracy, 89 long passing, 88 stamina, 83 sliding tackle, and 84 vision.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (83 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Manchester United
Best Position: LWB, LB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 83 OVR / 88 POT
Value: £47 million
Wage: £105,000 per week
Best Attributes: 90 Sliding Tackle, 88 Sprint Speed, 85 Agility

While managers all over the world are moving more and more towards having full-backs that are better-suited to attacking than defending, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has broken through for his near-impeccable defending.

In his first season for Manchester United, he played 46 games and sealed four assists, but it’s his defensive stats that blow everyone else out of the water. Wan-Bissaka finished the 2019/20 Premier League campaign with an average of 3.7 tackles, 1.9 interceptions, 1.7 clearances, and just 0.6 fouls per game.

The Englishman weighs-in as the second-best young RB in FIFA 21, boasting an 83 OVR from the start and a decent 88 POT to grow into over the coming seasons.

Wan-Bissaka boasts several user-friendly ratings in Career Mode, such as his four-star skill moves, 88 sprint speed, 84 acceleration, 90 sliding tackle, 85 standing tackle, and 85 agility.

Nordi Mukiele (80 OVR – 87 POT)

Team: RB Leipzig
Best Position: LB, LCB, CB, RCB, RB
Overall/Potential: 80 OVR / 87 POT
Value: £36.5 million
Wage: £41,000 per week
Best Attributes: 90 Jumping, 87 Sprint Speed, 85 Standing Tackle

Nordi Mukiele is proving to be quite the savvy buy for RB Leipzig, with the French defender having already featured in 70 games since his £14.4 million move from Montpellier HSC in 2018.

Last season was Mukiele’s best yet, scoring three goals and setting up three more while playing in three different positions. He was primarily deployed at right back, starting 20 games there, with another ten at right midfield, and seven at centre back.

In FIFA 21, the young Montreuil-native can be used to full effect at CB or RB, with Mukiele’s physicality and tackling being his primary strengths.

With 90 jumping, 87 sprint speed, 83 interceptions, 85 standing tackle, 82 sliding tackle, and 79 strength, the 22-year-old is a strong asset to have along the backline.

Emerson (78 OVR – 88 POT)

Team: Real Betis (on-loan from FC Barcelona)
Best Position: LWB, LB, LCB, CB, RCB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 78 OVR / 88 POT
Value: £27 million
Wage: £15,000 per week
Best Attributes: 80 Sprint Speed, 79 Acceleration, 79 Stamina

Real Betis have had Emerson in their squad since the middle of the 2018/19 season, will continue to have the Brazilian on their books until the end of this season, but haven’t ever signed the talented right back.

On-loan from Atlético Mineiro two seasons ago and now from FC Barcelona for the second term of his two-season loan, Emerson is a first-team regular for Los Verdiblancos, scoring three goals and six assists in 34 games last season.

In FIFA 21, Emerson is one of the best young right backs, but potential suitors of the Brazilian may have to wait until his loan to the Andalusia club expires.

Emerson isn’t particularly highly-rated in any area, but his attribute ratings are very well-rounded, as shown by his 80 sprint speed, 78 standing tackle, 79 aggression, 75 crossing, 78 jumping, and 79 stamina.

Gonzalo Montiel (78 OVR – 85 POT)

Team: Núñez (River Plate)
Best Position: LWB, LB, RB, RWB
Overall/Potential: 78 OVR / 85 POT
Value: £24 million
Wage: £18,000 per week
Best Attributes: 93 Stamina, 87 Acceleration, 87 Aggression

Now 23-years-old, Gonzalo Montiel continues to hold down his place as River Plate’s go-to right back or right midfielder, playing 23 games and setting up five goals across the campaign.

Currently being linked to a few Premier League clubs expected to be around mid-table to the bottom-half this season, it doesn’t seem likely that Montiel will be in his native Argentina for too much longer.

Montiel is one of the best young right backs in Career Mode of FIFA 21, but he is very versatile, and can play across the backline, on either flank, or in defensive midfield if needed.

The Argentine’s strengths are in his athleticism, with his 87 acceleration, 85 sprint speed, 93 stamina, 87 aggression, and 79 jumping being his highlight attribute ratings.

As there aren’t too many great right backs in FIFA 21, you can’t go wrong with bringing in one of the best young RBs or RWBs in Career Mode and developing them into a top-class full-back.
