What is the best EA Sports FC 24 starter team in Ultimate Team?

After testing various formations and player combinations, this is the best EA Sports FC 24 starter team in Ultimate Team:

  • GK - Nick Pope (Newcastle United)
  • LB - Rico Henry (Brentford)
  • CB - Micky van de Ven (Tottenham Hotspur)
  • CB - Jurrien Timber (Arsenal)
  • RB - Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Manchester United)
  • LM - Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton & Hove Albion)
  • CM - Rodrigo Bentacur (Tottenham Hotspur)
  • CM - Joelinton (Newcastle United)
  • RM - Moussa Diaby (Aston Villa)
  • ST - Arnaut Danjuma (Everton)
  • ST - Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal)

Chemistry: 33/33

Kicking things off in goal is Newcastle United's Nick Pope, who possesses lightning-fast reflexes to ensure a clean sheet is maintained. Our central defenders are the Dutch duo of Micky van de Ven and Jurrien Timber. The Dutch connection is perfect for building some extra chemistry.

The wider defenders are Rico Henry and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who are bound to be solid choices without having to break the bank.

The pairing of Rodrigo Bentacur and Joelinton in central midfield should provide exceptional value due to their relatively low overall rating. Despite that, they're excellent all-round players perfect for controlling the middle of the park.

Out wide, we've gone with Kaoru Mitoma on the left and Moussa Diaby on the right. Mitoma's exceptional dribbling skills will ensure you move the ball forward alongside Diaby's rapid pace to outrun any defenders with ease.


Up top, we've settled on the combination of Gabriel Jesus and Callum Wilson. Jesus features high dribbling stats, which will come in handy when controlling the ball inside the box, while Danjuma's pace will complement Diaby's speed on the right-hand side. He's also got some solid shooting stats.
