Best left backs in FC 24

Firstly, let's start with the highest-rated left backs in the game that you can sign in Career Mode for instant success!

These players may not be young talents, but, they will bring quality right away to your team if you can afford them!

For Ultimate Team players check out which PlayStyles are best for left backs in FC 24!

What makes a good left back?

A left-back can play many roles as mentioned previously, a modern-day left-back is often used to overlap and join the attack or to cut inside as an inverted fullback to join the midfield. Thus, there is no set answer to this as it depends on your playstyle.

We can say that typically a good left-back has good defending one-on-one, crossing, pace, and stamina. Running up and down the left flank is hard work thus, stamina is very important in this position. Pace adds an extra attacking option for your team as the LB can trackback easier if your team is caught on the counter-attack.

LB's can be a HUGE threat against any team if they play an attacking role!

Depending on what team you are managing, a more defensive-minded LB may be needed such as a left-footed CB playing wide. Nathan Ake plays this role perfectly at Manchester City.

Best LBs in FC 24

We will look at the top LBs in EA FC 24 that will bring your club instant success. These players may not be young talents but they do guarantee you instantly added quality to any team in Career Mode. Secondly, we will look at rising stars who play in the LB position and who will develop over future seasons into top LBs.

There will be a top five for both top players and top talents with a couple of extra honourable mentions that are also great alternatives!

Joao Cancelo (86 OVR)

A fantastic attacking fullback who can play on the left and the right, he has just completed a loan move to Barcelona, so he will not be available to transfer within his first season!

Andrew Robertson (86 OVR)

After a tough season with Liverpool, Robertson still finds himself as one of the best LB's in the world. With amazing crossing and set pieces, Robertson adds a lot to any team!

Theo Hernandez (85 OVR)

Theo Hernandez is an absolute powerhouse, with blistering pace and strength he loves to bomb up and down the left flank. At still only 25 years old he has plenty of years left at the top level.

Marcos Acuna (85 OVR)

World Cup and Europa League winner Marcos Acuna is at the top of his career, a great option in the LB position he is very well-rounded. He is not the fastest however his technical ability and strength make up for this.

Alejandro Grimaldo (84 OVR)

Technically listed as a LWB, Grimaldo can easily slot into your LB spot too. The Spanish star hasn't had much of the spotlight throughout his career but has finally found his feet and now at Bayer Leverkusen, he seems set to cement his position among the best left backs in the game.

Honourable mentions

We have four more players for you that fall under the top LB's in the game. These are a bit cheaper, although not as good as the top five LB's in EA FC 24.

Alphonso Davies
Bayern Munich
Jordi Alba
Inter Miami
Luke Shaw
Manchester United
Ferland Mendy

Best young LBs for Career Mode

Have an opinion on this article? We'd love to hear it!

Now we will display the best young LBs that are available in EA FC 24 Career Mode. This consists of the biggest young talents under the age of 21 years old who have room to develop into world-class players.

Nuno Mendes (82 OVR / 87 POT)

PSG wonderkid Nuno Mendes is a fantastic left fullback with blistering pace and great stats on the ball including dribbling and passing.

He is one of the best 21-year-old LBs in the game and with 87 potential the sky is the limit for him!

Alejandro Balde (81 OVR / 89 POT)

Barcelona wonderkid Balde continues to impress as he has now taken over the first spot for Barcelona as their first-choice LB after seeing Jordi Alba move to Inter Miami. Alejandro Balde at the age of just 19 years old really does have the world at his feet.

Balde in FC 24 does have to develop his defending more to fully arrive as a world-class player, however with 92 pace he is great fun to play with!

Destiny Udogie (77 OVR / 86 POT)

Tottenham have a new wonderkid at left back, who goes by the name of Destiny Udogie. The Italian full back signed for Spurs last season before returning to former club Udinese on loan. With Ange Postecoglou now in charge of the North London club, Udogie has become a first team regular, and already looks one of the best LBs in the league, at 20 years of age.

Adrien Truffert (76 OVR / POT 83)

Stade Rennais LB Adrien Truffert is a lesser known option when it comes to full backs in Career Mode, however the Frenchman had a similar rating and potential in FIFA 23. At 21, Truffert is the perfect age to slot into a mid-table back line, and could easily develop past his potential.

Patrick Dorgu (64 OVR / 85 POT)

Lecce left back Dorgu is newly added into FC 24 Career Mode and is a hidden gem! If you are playing any type of Career Mode save, you must sign him!

Honourable mentions

We have three more players for you that fall under the best young talented LB's in Career Mode. All three players develop into top-class players and a great fun to play with in FC 24!

Milos Kerkez
75 - 85
