Every year, FIFA fans are desperate to know who the fastest players will be on the latest edition of the game.
Anyone who has ever played the famous franchise will know that pace reigns supreme across all game modes.
If your wingers and strikers can’t burst past opposing defenders like a graceful gazelle, you don’t really stand much of a chance.
The emphasis on pace means that both Adama Traore and Kylian Mbappe are two of the most sought-after players on the game – especially on Ultimate Team.
Mbappe was probably the best player on FIFA 20 due to his absurd speed and the Frenchman will be a force to be reckoned with once again on FIFA 21.

Traore unsurprisingly takes top spot, with Mane and James the other representatives from the Premier League in the top 20.
One of the more surprising inclusions in the top 10 is Real Madrid starlet Vinicius, the Brazilian’s pace rating increasing from 93 on FIFA 20 to 95 this time around.
Given his links to other La Liga stars, the 20-year-old is going to be a hot property in the early weeks of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.
