The best LB in FIFA 23 Career Mode is Joao Cancelo with an 87 OVR. However, you will not be able to sign the Portugal international in your first season as he is out on loan at Bayern Munich from Manchester City.

Pace and Stamina are key factors for a full-back, with speed a vital attribute when defending, and also a useful weapon in attack. Ultimate Team favourites Alphonso Davies, Ferland Mendy, and Theo Hernandez would be our picks as the best left-backs to sign in Career Mode, especially if you are looking to bring in a world class player to fill the position.

Andrew Robertson and Jordi Alba are two quality performers, but they will be expensive and are unlikely to improve on their current ratings.

David Alaba and Lucas Hernandez are two players to consider for the role too. Their primary position is CB, however LB is an alternate position. Both players possess strong physical attributes, although their acceleration and sprint speed stats may not be as high as some of the more natural left-backs.

The best young LB in FIFA 23 Career Mode is Nuno Mendes. The PSG star boasts an 81 OVR with an 89 potential. Aged just 20 Mendes won’t come cheap, however he has pace and dribbling attributes to rival some of the top wingers in the game.

Barcelona’s Alejandro Balde will become a top-class player in both real life and in FIFA 23 Career Mode. Balde’s blistering 91 Sprint Speed means he can outrun any winger than crosses his path.

One player to consider is Udinese wing back Destiny Udogie. The Italian teenager also possesses an 89 potential and is blessed with great pace, but you will have to set him on a left-back development plan to alter his position.
