FIFA 19 is finally here. And everyone knows that on FIFA, pace reigns supreme. 

Although the series tries to stick as close as possible to the beautiful game played in the real world it is played at breakneck speed in polygons, making speed one of the most important attributes in the game.

So, before you head to those online battles, have a perusal at the fastest players on FIFA 19 – as ranked by EA Sports – so you can choose your side wisely.

20. Leon Bailey

Pace: 93
Acceleration: 94
Sprint speed: 92
Club: Bayer Leverkusen
Position: LM
FIFA 19 overall: 82 (Gold rare)

After a breakout first full season with Bayer Leverkusen, the Jamaican flyer is rewarded with a spot in the top 20.

Complete with 85 dribbling and four-star weak foot and skill moves, expect to see the 21-year-old in plenty of teams on this year’s game.

19. Alex Kiwomya

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 93
Sprint speed: 94
Club:  Doncaster Rovers
Position: RM
FIFA 19 overall: 62 (Bronze rare)

Before he joined Chelsea’s famed youth academy, Alex Kiwomya was a promising young athlete. Posting a personal best 100m time of 10.98 seconds when he was just 14 years old, no one can argue with his inclusion in the top 20 fastest players on FIFA 19.

18. Tom Barkhuizen

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 94
Sprint speed: 94
Club: Preston
Position: LM
FIFA 19 overall: 71 (Silver rare)

17. Ryan Fredericks

Club: West Ham United
Position: RB
FIFA 19 overall: 73 (Silver)

16. Jonás Aguirre

Pace: 94

FIFA 19 overall: 75 (Gold)

14. Jonathan Biabiany

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 95
Sprint speed: 93
Club: Parma
Position: RW
FIFA 19 overall: 74 (Silver)

A cult hero amongst FIFA Ultimate Team players, his speed has caused as much happiness as it has pain over recent years as a result of people’s ‘abuse’ of it.

And this year, he could become a popular pick once again following a loan spell with Sparta Prague in 2017/18.

For the fourth time in his career, Biabiany has joined Parma so we might just see him in a few Serie A teams this year, even if it is just for old time’s sake.

13. Rashad Muhammed

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 93
Sprint speed: 94
Club: Sarpsborg 08
Position: ST
FIFA 19 overall: 61 (Bronze)

12. Gelson Martins

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 95
Sprint speed: 94
Club: Atlético Madrid
Position: RM
FIFA 19 overall: 82 (Gold)

11. Luis Advíncula

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 95
Sprint speed: 94
Club: Rayo Vallecano
Position: RB
FIFA 19 overall: 74 (Silver)

To date, Luis Advincula is the holder of the fastest recorded speed during a football match. The Peruvian full-back proved his pace at the 2018 World Cup but entered the tournament having already broken Gareth Bale’s record.

Advincula reportedly clocked 36.15 km/h in a Liga MX game in March this year, showing remarkable recovery speed to go from one penalty area to another before making a vital tackle.

His 94 pace rating is fully deserved.

10. Sadio Mané

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 95
Sprint speed: 93
Club: Liverpool
Position: RW
FIFA 19 overall: 86 (Gold)

9. Kekuta Manneh

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 96
Sprint speed: 93
Club: FC St. Gallen
Position: LM
FIFA 19 overall: 69 (Silver)

8. Kingsley Coman

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 95
Sprint speed: 93
Club: Bayern Munich
Position: LM
FIFA 19 overall: 83 (Gold)

7. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pace: 94
Acceleration: 93
Sprint speed: 95
Club: Arsenal
Position: ST
FIFA 19 overall: 87 (Gold)

The joint-fastest player on FIFA 18, the Gabon captain’s pace has taken a hit on this year’s edition.

Despite becoming the quickest Arsenal player to reach 10 Premier League goals after his club-record £56m move from Borussia Dortmund, this was not enough to convince EA to maintain his frightening 96 sprint speed.

6. Jürgen Damm

Pace: 95
Acceleration: 94
Sprint speed: 95
Club: Tigres UANL
Position: RM
FIFA 19 overall: 75 (Gold)

5. Leroy Sané

Pace: 95
Acceleration: 93
Sprint speed: 95
Club: Manchester City
Position: LW
FIFA 19 overall: 85 (Gold)

Despite not making Germany’s World Cup squad at the end of it, Leroy Sané’s 2017/18 season was incredible.

Providing 19 assists and scoring 14 goals for Man City across all competitions, the lightning-fast winger was named PFA Young Player of the Year as Pep Guardiola’s side romped to a record-breaking points total.

To add to his incredible contribution, Sané also clocked the quickest time of any player in the Premier League last season: 35.48km/h.

4. Douglas Costa

Pace: 95
Acceleration: 97
Sprint speed: 93
Club: Juventus
Position: LM
FIFA 19 overall: 86 (Gold)

Although ranked fourth in the top 20 fastest players on FIFA 19, the Brazilian winger has the highest acceleration stat on this list.

3. Gareth Bale

Pace: 95
Acceleration: 94
Sprint speed: 95
Club: Real Madrid
Position: RW
FIFA 19 overall: 88 (Gold)

2. Kylian Mbappé

Pace: 96
Acceleration: 96
Sprint speed: 96
Club: Paris Saint-Germain
Position: RW
FIFA 19 overall: 87 (Gold)

Fresh from winning the World Cup at 19 years old, the PSG winger has been rewarded with a terrifying card on FIFA 19.

Not only is he the second-fastest player on the game, he now boasts four-star weak-foot and five-star skill moves.

Good luck if you come up against him.

1. Adama Traoré

Pace: 96
Acceleration: 97
Sprint speed: 96
Club: Wolverhampton Wanderers
Position: RW
FIFA 19 overall: 75 (Gold)

Famous for his quite ridiculous dribbling statistics, Wolves’ club-record signing is now the fastest player on FIFA 19.

When asked about his new title, Traoré was quick to lay down a challenge to the fastest man in history, Usain Bolt

“It is nice to be known on FIFA 19 as the fastest player in the world,” the 21-year-old said, speaking to The Sun, as reported by Goal.

“But Usain Bolt has started playing for Central Coast Mariners so I might have a rival next season. Just remember, Usain didn’t have to dribble a ball while he was winning his gold medals!

“Clearly Bolt would beat me over 100 metres on the track. But on grass, over 30 metres with a ball at my feet? I’m winning that race every time!”

So, that’s it, the fastest players on FIFA 19.
