FIFA 20 best wingers - the best LW, best RW, and best LM and RMs in FIFA

The top wide players in FIFA 20 and where to find them.

The best FIFA Wingers are where a lot of the magic - and rage - starts to take place. With pacey forwards tricky to contain this year they're as important as ever, and feature several of the highest-rated players in the game altogether this year, too.

Here on this page, we'll be listing FIFA 20's best wingers - which includes the best FIFA LW, the best FIFA RW, and the best LM and RMs, too, ranked in order of their overall rating.

Be sure to take also look at the specifics depending on what you want out of them, beyond the obvious points of Dribbling, Acceleration and Sprint Speed, and think about Crossing and Long Passing if you prefer to hit the big man in the middle, and Long Shots if you're keen on cutting inside and striking from range.

For other stats-based guides, it's worth taking a look at our list of the highest potential FIFA 20 wonderkids, plus we have pages on the FIFA 20's best Goalkeepers, FIFA 20's best Defenders, the FIFA 20's best Midfielders and FIFA 20's best Strikers in the game, too.

FIFA 20 best LW - the best Left Wingers in FIFA

Diving straight in, Neymar is once again the best left winger in the world, even if he started the 19/20 season festering on the bench after failing to sulk his way out of the club. Otherwise, Martial overtakes Sanchez (on loan at Inter) as United's top option on their overcroweded left flank.

FIFA 20 best RW - the best Right Wingers in FIFA

Messi is the obvious choice for the best right winger in the game. Sterling could arguably be higher given his astonishing record for City and brilliant work off the ball, while Vela seems far and away the best player in the MLS (or at least up there with Zlatan...).

FIFA 20 best LM - the best Left Mids in FIFA

Plenty of decent options at left mid, despite FIFA continuing to drop stats off tor players the further away they get from the opponent's goal. West Ham's hot-and-cold Felipe Anderson ranking the same as Juventus' Douglas Costa is an interesting one.

FIFA 20 best RM - the best Right Mids in FIFA

Sparse options at right mid this year, with Sancho and Pepe the obvious options for speed demons. Koke is very off-meta but more power to you if you can make a silky-yet-sluggish midfielder work as well out wide as he has in the real world for Atletico.

Other things to know about picking the best FIFA Wingers

As we alluded to above, there are a few additional things to bear in mind when choosing your wide players in FIFA 20, with slightly different factors becoming more or less important depending on the mode and formation you're playing.

  • For Career Mode, potential is important too - Some players have higher built-in potential for growth than others, and if you're planning on playing at least two seasons of Career Mode then it's going to have a major impact on your squad. It's also a great way to pick up a bargain, too, so if you're keen on finding some youngsters take the time to go over our detailed list of the best FIFA 20 potential wonderkids and young players, whcih includes some of the finest young wide players in the game.
  • For Ultimate Team, remember you can use Chemistry Styles - Chemistry Styles, if you didn't know, add up to a whopping 90 points to your player's attributes, spread according to the Style you choose. You can read more on Chemistry in general in our guide to how FIFA Chemistry works, and likewise the best FIFA Chemistry Styles in our detailed guide to those, too.
  • Think about your style of play when looking at stats - We mentioned this briefly above, but certain wingers will work better in certain formations and styles. Pace in general is obviously extra-useful if you play a more direct, counter-attacking style, whilst you might want to focus more on Crossing, Short Passing, and even Tackling if you're using more central or reserved LMs and RMs.
