Ronaldo misses out in the FUT 21 Ultimate 11

With FIFA 21 over five months old, we now have a fairly clear understanding of the Ultimate Team market.

For all the various promos - Team of the Year, What If, FUT Freeze and Team of the Week players - there are some core players who are unmoved from players' squads.

We look at the Ultimate 11 as pulled together by esports betting site Unikrn.

Reliable between the sticks, Alisson offers a big presence in goal and useful for launching counter-attacks with his ability with the ball.

Alisson was the highest-rated Premier League goalkeeper until just this month, with a Joe Hart 91-rated Flashback SBC taking that spot.

Joe Gomez (OVR 83)

Joe Gomez comes in at right back for the Ultimate XI, with his 82 pace making him suitable to play in the position.

With a price around 7,000 coins, Gomez is an absolute bargain for his ability and it's highly likely he would have been in your Ultimate at some stage.

Virgil van Dijk (OVR 90)

No surprise to see VVD in this side, with the Dutchman tearing up FUT this year as opposed to his injury nightmare for Liverpool.

Van Dijk's price is likely to soon slip below the 100,000 mark - so you may strongly be considering bringing him in.

Raphael Varane (OVR 86)

Raphael Varane is another defender you would have come across more often than not in Division Rivals - with the Real Madrid man the most used card in FUT 21 so far.

The Frenchman holds great pace (82), is phenomenal in the air (85 heading) and has strength (86) to go with it.

Ferland Mendy (OVR 83)

Another "cheap beast" Ferland Mendy express pace (92) makes him a necessity for any French or La Liga side.

If coming up against him, his defensive stats (78) aren't the greatest, and he's susceptible (jumping 78) to being bossed by headers at the back post.

Marcus Rashford (OVR 85)

Marcos Rashford is being shoe-horned in at central midfield in the Ultimate 11, with the United star doing his damage in the final third.

With deadly pace (91), dribbling (85) and shot power (89), things will happen when he picks up the ball.

N'Golo Kante (OVR 88)

A necessity for any top-level Premier League Ultimate Team, N'Golo Kante does the work of two players in midfield.

With pace (77), defensive stability (86 defending) and useful on the ball (92 balance) - the Chelsea man is worth the price, especially with great league and country links.

Paul Pogba (OVR 86)

In a similar boat is Man United's Paul Pogba, who offers great balance to any FUT side.

Now at a fantastic price at around 30,000 coins, you should jump at the chance to get the World Cup winner's 86 passing, 86 dribbling and 85 physicality.

Sadio Mane (OVR 90)

With no Mo Salah, Sadio Mane flips over to the right wing in this side, and with 4-star skill moves and weak foot - that's no issue for him.

The Liverpool star possess outrageous pace (94) and dribbling (90), and is as cold as ice in front of goal (90 finishing).

Kylian Mbappe (OVR 90)

The GOAT of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

If you can afford Kylian Mbappe (who makes up almost half of the team's price) you simply must sign him, due to the Parisian's 96 pace, 91 dribbling, 86 shooting, five-star skill moves and four-star weak foot.

Neymar (OVR 91)

Rounding the side off is Mbappe's PSG teammate with Neymar perhaps the best player on the ball in the game.

The Brazilian has a five-star skill weak foot and skill moves, with 94 dribbling, 91 pace, 86 passing and 85 shooting to boot.
