There are certain attributes and overalls that are of utmost importance on FIFA 21 and, once again, skill moves is one of them.

While pace has been a big part of online play so far in FIFA 21, particularly in Ultimate Team, the ability to move out of tight spots can be crucial on your quest to hit the heights – be it a Treble in Career Mode, division title on Pro Clubs or Elite 1 in FUT Champions.

When the right skills are used at the right time and in the right combination, five-star skillers can be unstoppable. That’s why they can be so popular on Ultimate Team, where prices often rise if a footballer boasts the skills to pay the bills, unbelievable tekkers, silks or whatever you use to describe the magicians.

In FIFA 21 there are a grand total of 52 players blessed with five-star skill moves excluding ICONs (two more than FIFA 20), ranging from the expected 92-rated Cristiano Ronaldo to Lyon’s 67-rated Rayan Cherki. But who else made the list? Take a look below….
