FIFA 20: The Top 10 Left Wingers (LW & LM) to buy on Career Mode & Ultimate Team – Neymar, Hazard, Mane & more


Signing the right wide players is crucial as they have become such an important part of the modern attacking game.

Nowadays, a winger must have speed, strength and finishing ability, on top of the traditional dribbling and crossing skill set.

Luckily for you, here at RealSport we have picked out the best left wingers and midfielders on FIFA 20.

How to choose the best wingers (LW & LM) for FIFA 20

Here we are looking at the best left wingers (LWs) and left midfielders (LMs) with a rating of at least 82.

Left wingers have become one of the most important positions in the modern game, so be prepared to part with some serious cash to secure these guys’ signatures. 

For a full list of ALL the best wingers (LW & LM) on Career Mode, look at the table at the end of this page. 

Neymar Jr (OVR 92 – POT 92)

+ 10

Age: 27

Position(s): LW, CAM

Club: PSG

Country: Brazil

Work rate: High/Medium

Best stats: 96 agility, 96 dribbling, 90 vision

Career Mode value: £95 million (Release Clause: £175.7 million)

Wage: £261,000 a week

FUT Price: 989k PS4 / 846k Xbox One

The ex-Barca man is not only the best left winger in the game, but the third best player on FIFA 20. Unlike most talented youngsters who crumble under pressured expectations, Neymar has gone above and beyond his potential, reflected by his 92 overall.

His 96 agility and 96 dribbling means that defenders will be reluctant to tackle Neymar, out of fear of humiliation.

Eden Hazard (OVR 91 – POT 91)

+ 10

Age: 28

Position(s): LW, CF

Club: Real Madrid

Country: Belgium

Work rate: High/Medium

Career Mode value: £81 million (Release Clause: £166.1 million)

FUT Price: 412k PS4 / 377k Xbox One

After helping Chelsea win one last piece of silverware before his departure in summer, Hazard can now be found on the left channel at Real Madrid.

His overall rating of 91 is one of the best in FIFA 20, whilst his 89 vision and 91 composure means he has the capability to either stay out wide and get a ball in, or cut in and shoot; evidently, signing this man will keep opposition defenders guessing.

After winning the Champions League and finishing second in the Premier League with 97 points in 2018/19, Mane makes up one third of one of the best front lines in the world.

His 91 FIFA 20 rating comes as no surprise; Mane’s 89 dribbling allows him to beat defenders, before utilising his 87 finishing to find the net.

Leroy Sane (OVR 86 – POT 92)

He may not be cheap, but with stats like 96 rated sprint speed, 88 rated dribbling and 87 rated shot power, he’s worth every penny. 

Philippe Coutinho (OVR 86 – POT 86)

click to enlarge
+ 10

Age: 27

Position(s): LW, CM

Club: Bayern Munich (on loan)

Country: Brazil

Work rate: High/Medium

Best stats: 92 agility, 91 ball control, 90 dribbling

Career Mode value: £41.9 million

Wage: £158,000 a week

FUT Price: 13.7k PS4 / 15.5k Xbox One

After struggling for game time at Barcelona, Coutinho joined Bayern Munich on loan over the summer. The Brazilian's FIFA 20 stats of 92 agility and 90 dribbling make him a tricky customer for defenders, whilst his 90 curve and 86 free kick accuracy make him useful on a set piece.

As he has just joined Bayern on loan, you’ll have to wait until summer 2020 to sign Coutinho on Career Mode, but his FUT price is great value for money.

The Frenchman’s 91 sprint speed, 87 dribbling and 87 ball control make him tough to contain, so he would be a powerful threat on your left wing.

Position(s): LM

Club: West Ham

Country: Brazil

Since joining West Ham back in 2018, Felipe Anderson has become somewhat of a fan favourite.

The Brazilian’s movement and skill stats (90 dribbling, 88 ball control, 89 sprint speed, 89 agility) means defenders have a hard time stopping him, whilst he has the crossing (81 crossing) and shooting (86 shot power) capabilities to both create and finish chances.

Douglas Costa (OVR 84 – POT 84)

The Croatians 85 ball control, 83 crossing and 79 finishing make him a bit of an all-rounder, whilst his 89 stamina ensures he’ll cover every blade of grass over 90 minutes.

Just like Coutinho, Perisic has just joined Bayern on loan, so you’ll have to wait until summer 2020 to sign him on Career Mode; but his FUT price is affordable.
