Specially for his column on the team’s official website, the Dynamo Kyiv Esports e-football player Vitaliy ‘Labotryas’ Mukha continues the theme of the best ones in their positions in FIFA 18.

Earlier, Vitaliy has already named the best among goalkeepers, center-backs, and fullbacks. Today, all attention is on the top 5 FIFA 18 midfielders.

“In FIFA 18, it’s very important for the midfielder to tackle well. Therefore, in my top there are no classical CAMs at all.

In recent years, almost all at the beginning of the game are rearranging their squad under the desired scheme, so even in such a popular 4-2-3-1 scheme with three CAMs, we see mostly wingers.


1. Arturo Vidal.

Arturo Vidal

The Chilean, you might say, has got the ideal characteristics for the midfielder: excellent speed, turnovers, and tackling with a score of 89. Many top center-backs cannot boast of this. Plus, Arturo has got a very strong long-range shot. Definitely, the first place.


2. Radja Nainggolan.

Radja Nainggolan

The Roma player is very similar to the Bayern footballer. The only indicator by which Radja is significantly inferior is head-playing (the figure is only 59), which is also very important for the midfield player. But down the Belgian is magnificent. Turnovers, tackles, and even playing for attack—all this is up to the mark.


3. N’Golo Kanté.

N’Golo Kanté

If to look at Kanté’s characteristics, comparing them with the same Vidal, the Frenchman loses in many respects. Weak head-playing, low height for the center midfielder, poor long-range shots. But once you’ve played with Kanté in FIFA 18, you would hardly notice those drawbacks. In the game, he gnaws and turns over almost everything.


4. Paul Pogba.

Paul Pogba

According to his indicators, Pogba could probably be in the first position of my rating, if his play for defense were higher. However, while playing, the Frenchman is very weak on the defensive, which, unfortunately, is often felt during the game. FIFA 18 is a very fast game, while the Frenchman is often just lost on the field. But he’s tall, has got cool shots, passes, a technique. Having improved his defensive indicators, Pogba will definitely be the best FIFA midfielder.


5. Casemiro.


A very stable center midfielder (rather, even a defensive midfielder). A good stature, shots, passes. Sometimes, he lacks agility, but in general is a very reliable player.

A bonus.

1. Ruud Gullit 90.

Ruud Gullit

Gullit is the FIFA 18 most balanced player. He will be able to play at any position in the game, except for the flanks and a goalkeeper. Good height, chic technique, two-footed, head-playing. Just a beast.


2. Patrick Vieira 91.

The Arsenal legend is the best midfield player in the defensive game.


3. Sergej Milinković-Savić 87.


A discovery of this season. Paul Pogba on the maximum.”
