Partey, Telles & Rashford: What is FIFA 21's most overpowered Premier League XI?

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial feature in the PL' most overpowered XI on FIFA 21

FIFA 21 is here and the summer transfer window is also officially closed.

That means we now know which stars will be available as Premier League players on the franchise's most popular game mode, Ultimate Team.

With numerous clubs from England's top-flight enduring a hectic 'deadline day', the pool of FIFA beasts to pick from when building a Premier League XI has increased.

Manchester United's signing of Brazilian left-back Alex Telles and Arsenal's acquisition of Thomas Partey were the two most eye-catching additions yesterday.

Both players undoubtedly fall into the 'overpowered' category on FIFA and it means you can now create the most ridiculous Premier League XI on FIFA 21.

The Premier League trophy

The maximum price for a player in our XI is 300,000 coins, so the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk, Kevin De Bruyne and N'Golo Kante miss out.

Formation: 4-4-2

Goalkeeper: Ederson | 88-rated

Ederson's FIFA 21 card

Picking an overpowered 'keeper is tough, but we've gone with Ederson over Alisson Becker.

The Manchester City man is far cheaper and his base stats look incredible.

Get ready to ping some beautiful long-range passes with the Brazilian's 93-rated kicking.

Right-back: Nelson Semedo | 83-rated

Semedo's FIFA 21 card

Anyone who played FIFA 20 will know just how ridiculously good Semedo is in the virtual world.

No winger can burst past him due to his Usain Bolt-esque speed and to make matters worse, the Portuguese has four-star skills - two attributes that put him comfortably ahead of Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Semedo is going to be breaking controllers once again on FIFA 21.

Centre-back: Joe Gomez | 83-rated

Gomez's FIFA 21 card

After playing a pivotal role in Liverpool's title-winning campaign in 2019/20, Gomez's card has been boosted from 80 to 83 overall.

Given his 80-rated card on FIFA 20 gobbled up strikers for fun, we dread to think how powerful the England international will be this time around.

A pace rating of 82 on a centre-back just should not be allowed.

Centre-back: Davinson Sanchez | 81-rated

Sanchez's FIFA 21 card

With Van Dijk out of most players' price range, we reckon the vast majority are going to take a punt on Tottenham's Colombian centre-back.

Sanchez's card this time around isn't quite up to the standard of his 84-rated one from FIFA 19, but we're not complaining too much.

His 87 aggression, 83 strength and 79 sprint speed are the standout stats from a very well-rounded card.

Left-back: Alex Telles | 84-rated

Telles' FIFA 21 card

Forget Andy Robertson, this guy is going to be the go-to Premier League left-back.

A defender with stats befitting of a central midfielder? Oh yes and with 85-pace, Telles is easily fast enough to nullify most wingers.

The former FC Porto man is going to be a VERY popular man on FIFA 21.

Right-mid: Lucas Moura | 83-rated

Moura's FIFA 21 card

Moura was deadly as a CAM/CF on FIFA 20 and his card looks just as lethal this time around, despite being shoved back on the right-wing.

The diminutive Brazilian possesses 95 acceleration, 93 agility and 92 balance, meaning he'll glide past most players like a gazelle in full flow.

He also has four-star skills and a four-star weak foot, essential attributes for any winger.

Centre-mid: Thomas Partey | 84-rated

Partey's FIFA 21 card

Get ready for the Premier League's newest midfield monster on FIFA 21.

Partey is the complete package in the middle of the park, possessing 92 stamina, 86 short passing, 85 long shots and 84 dribbling.

The Ghanaian will be a force to be reckoned with.

Centre-mid: Allan | 83-rated

Allan's FIFA 21 card

Who needs Kante when you've got Allan?!

The Brazilian has been a sought-after player for years on FIFA and after his move from Napoli to Everton, the all-action midfielder is going to be popping up in loading screens on a very regular basis.

Allan and Partey's virtual partnership is going to be scarily good.

Left-mid: Marcus Rashford | 85-rated

Rashford's FIFA 21 card

Rashford's card this year is an absolute joke.

Pace? Phenomenal. Dribbling? Sensational. Finishing? Up there with the best, with 90 shot power thrown in the mix for that extra sprinkling of spice.

Did we mention he has five-star skills? Yep and four-star weak foot as well. One of the best cards we've seen at the start of a FIFA for many years.

Striker: Antony Martial | 84-rated

Martial's FIFA 21 card

Martial's FIFA 21 card isn't far behind his partner-in-crime at Manchester United.

His 89 pace will allow him to breeze past centre-backs for fun and then his 85 finishing will see to it that the ball ripples the net on a regular basis.

The Red Devils trio of Telles, Rashford and Martial on the left-hand side is enough to make FIFA players salivate.

Striker: Timo Werner | 85-rated

Werner's FIFA 21 card

The Premier League's new 'sweat king'. Werner's currently the most expensive player in this XI at around 250,000 coins, but he looks worth every penny

Chelsea's German striker has 93 acceleration and 88 finishing, making him a truly frightening prospect in-game.

Forget Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero, Werner and Martial are the real dream pair up top on FIFA 21.
