EA FC 24 is just around the corner and we are saying goodbye to the end of FIFA 23 and the FIFA franchise as we know it. As we go into the new era of football gaming with EA FC, there feels like an increased hype with the new branding of the game adding to the excitement.

As we get closer to the release of FC 24, we are bombarded with information from pitch notes and deep dives on Ultimate Team, Clubs, Career Mode, and the gameplay!

Finding the best-suited players for your team can be challenging especially when they are covering the LM /RM role in a 3-5-2. Without further ado, this article will dive into everything you need to know to make the most of these positions!

Best right and left midfielders in EA FC 24

It is worth noting that all ratings are predicted and all potentials are predictions ahead of EA FC 24.

We will begin with a mix of the highest-rated left midfielders and right midfielders in the game. These players may not all be young talents; however, they do offer instant success to every team in Career Mode.

What makes a good left (LM) and right midfielder (RM)?

This role typically uses quick players with a lot of stamina, allowing them to control the flanks. Running up while attacking and tracking back to defend, this player must have balanced stats to ensure there are no gaps on their side of the pitch.

The 3-5-2 formation means that the LM or RM will cover the entire left or right flank making stamina and pace essential for attacking and defending.

Key stats for this role could include stamina, pace, ball control, interceptions and crossing.
