FIFA 23 Meta Left Back Alphonso Davies

Top 10 Meta LB in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team

While pace may not be as needed in this year’s FIFA, it is still an important attribute as your wide defenders battle tricky and pacey wingers. You should also look out for their crossing and strength stats!

Here are your Top 10 Meta Left Backs in FIFA 23

10. Renan Lodi

If you can’t afford the higher budget left-backs on this list, Lodi can make a great alternative. With 84 stamina he can run up and down the pitch setting up goals with his 81 crossing.

9. Robin Gosens

With no base card stats lower than 74, the Inter Milan man can be a rock at the back or a full-back bombing forward down the left-wing. He’s a great budget option for left-back.

Great passing, good defending, and 95 stamina make Robertson a good choice for your left-hand side. Although with a lack of pace, Robertson may need a shadow chemistry style!

3. João Cancelo

Cancelo is the highest rated full-back in FIFA 23, yet he only makes it to third spot. From passing to dribbling, Cancelo can almost do anything! 

The only thing letting him down is his 62 strength.

2. Theo Hernandez 

Hernandez is the pick for second best left-back in FIFA 23. Not only is the Frenchman rapid, but he also has top tier physical attributes for his position. 

Coupled with his 93 pace, the AC Milan defender has 90 stamina and 81 strength. He can also be converted to lengthy!

1. Ferland Mendy

Mendy is FIFA 23’s best left-back. While similar in attributes to Hernandez, what sets Mendy apart is that 5-star weak foot.

Whether on his left or right foot, Mendy can deliver a devastating pass!

Once you have decided who will take your left-back position, we recommend you pair them up with some meta centre-backs in FIFA 23. This will make your defense harder to bypass!

We have not included any Heroes or Icons on this list as they can be extremely pricey to purchase at the start of FIFA.
