Tekkz, the world's best FIFA 23 player, has named three players everyone needs in Ultimate Team

Fnatic Tekkz, one of the best FIFA 23 players in the world, has named the top three players you need in Ultimate Team this year.

The latest instalment of EA Sports' hit franchise dropped last month, with gamers keen to put together the best squad possible.

Finding the right players and formation can be tough at the start of any game. Who better to ask for all the tips than a professional?

The 20-year-old's examined FIFA 23 extensively over the last few weeks and determined 'lengthy' players have it easiest.

What is a lengthy player you ask? Well, EA have given every player on the current generation of consoles an 'AcceleRATE' archetype. Everyone is divvied up into 'Controlled', 'Explosive' or 'Lengthy' acceleration types which determines how your players time their runs.

That can be changed on Ultimate Team with chemistry modifiers, but that costs money.

Tekkz named Noussair Mazraoui, Diego Carlos and Darwin Nunez as three default 'lengthy' players you absolutely need.

Speaking to SPORTbible, Tekkz said: "If you're playing Ultimate Team, get players that have a lengthy running type because that makes them twice as fast. Budget choices like Diego Carlos at centre back will make you way better because a lot of through balls are overpowered and he'll be able to help you guard them.

Then up front you can have someone like Darwin Nunez who again can latch onto the through balls."

Aston Villa defender Carlos is an 83-rated in game and down to the low price of 900 coins at the time of writing.

Liverpool striker Nunez, meanwhile, is an 82-rated and will set you back around 3000 coins.

Tekkz went on to name Bayern Munich full-back Mazraoui as another cheap option for your team.

He added: "Centre backs with 70 pace, like Carlos, are a must. Then Bayern have a right-back [Mazraoui] that's very good. If you get those two and Nunez up front, who is a little more expensive, it will change your life."

Tekkz represents Fnatic, the number one esports organisation in the world. He’s been a Fnatic Athlete for two years and has won four FIFA Championships in that time, including the eChampions League.
