After careful consideration, here's our list for the five best players from FIFA 21 Community TOTS, in no particular order

5 Best Players in FIFA 21 Community Team of the Season

1. Federico Valverde (Real Madrid, 92 Rated)

Valverde has become a young star at Real Madrid over the last two season, earning many special cards and fame in FIFA as well. For his TOTS, EA have given him the following stats

  • Pace: 94
  • Shooting: 84
  • Passing: 90
  • Dribbling: 92
  • Defending: 88
  • Physicality: 91

The central mid is prototypical for a midfielder in FIFA 21, with great dribbling stats, size and defending ability, along with a whopping 97 sprint speed and 90 acceleration. With many players at Real Madrid to link to, and his end-game center midfield and defensive midfield stats, it's no wonder he was valued at over a million coins upon release. He just has an amazing card.

2. Leon Bailey (Leverkusen, 90 Rated)

The Jamaican RW from the Bundesliga is extremely cheap on the market for reasons unclear. Yes, he is Jamaican, which is not a favored nation in FIFA in terms of card choices, but he's from the Bundesliga, which has a multitude of players to link Bailey to, including a strong link to the Lars Bender End of an Era card at right-back.

Bailey has high-low work-rates, great for attacking players in FIFA, and possesses the following stats:

  • Pace: 99
  • Shooting: 90
  • Passing: 86
  • Dribbling: 93
  • Defending: 38
  • Physicality: 77

His pace and dribbling make Bailey almost untouchable in the attacking third, and with a boost to his shooting and passing or physicality, Bailey can make for an amazing forward or outside CAM. He can also bang in long shots from outside the box with the flair trait and 94 shot power. Now that he's on the market for about 200,000 coins, players should definitely try to snag him up as his price decreases more.

3. Nicolás Tagliafico (Ajax, 90 Rated)

Another Community TOTS card on the inexpensive side, Tagliafico has some outstanding stats as a defender in the left-back role. In a FIFA where the 5-back formation and playing full-backs at center-back is the Meta for defense, the Ajax LB fills this role to a tee, despite his 5'8" stature.

Nicolás Tagliafico comes in as a 90-rated LB from the Eredivise with the following stats:

  • Pace: 96
  • Shooting: 60
  • Passing: 86
  • Dribbling: 89
  • Defending: 91
  • Physicality: 86

With an anchor chemistry style, Tagliafico becomes a 97-rated center back and LB, according to FUTBIN. With perfect pace and top defending and physicals using this chemistry style, Tagliafico will lock down any darting winger or attacker who comes onto his side of the pitch. For value cards, this is one of the best in TOTS so far.

4. David Alaba (92 Rated, Bayern)

David Alaba is the highest-rated defender in the Community TOTS, and it's well deserved for how big his role is at Bayern in the back-line. He has been a top Bundesliga CB option in FIFA and in real-world football for the last few seasons, and this year he finally has the Team of the Season card he deserves:

  • Pace: 86
  • Shooting: 80
  • Passing: 92
  • Dribbling: 90
  • Defending: 93
  • Physicality: 89

This card can be played anywhere in defense thanks to his four-star weak foot, and that includes his former fullback position. Even as a defensive midfielder, Alaba can make an impact for your defense in FIFA 21, thanks to higher than average dribbling for a center-back and solid passing. With an anchor chemistry style or shadow, he is an end-game defender that can fill in that missing piece for your Bundesliga team in the back.

5. Harvey Barnes (LW, Leicester City)

The young winger for Leicester City has gained much more recognition this season for his play in real life and in FIFA, already having a FUT Future Stars card months back. Now, with an upgrade in weak-foot to four-stars and positioned at LW unlike his last card upgrade,

Barnes' TOTS card comes in with the following upgraded stats:

  • Pace: 97
  • Shooting: 92
  • Passing: 90
  • Dribbling: 93
  • Defending: 53
  • Physicality: 80

Harvey Barnes can play out wide or right behind the striker at CAM with his dribbling and passing ability, and with an upgraded weak-foot he can finish on both feet in the box. 99 Stamina also means that he won't run out of gas easily and can last your full 90 minutes plus some extra time in-game. There isn't much to ridicule about his TOTS card, and as a Englishman in the Premier League, his linking options are endless. For around 500,000, his price will only go down more, meaning that he is definitely worth the price tag.
