In the need of a new defender with the best potential for your FIFA 19 Career Mode team? Here's the 10 best young defenders in FIFA 19 career mode with the highest potential.

If you’re lacking at the back, your team in FIFA 19 is going to concede a lot of goals. Defending is an art and to defend against the best, you need to have the best. We all know that players like Sergio Ramos and Diego Godin are rock solid centre-halves right now, but what about when they retire? You need to plan for the future. We’d recommend picking up some of these top 10 young defenders in FIFA 19. From centre backs to wing backs, these are the young defenders with the best potential in FIFA 19.

Best Young Defenders In FIFA 19

When you’re looking for a centre back, you want someone tall, so they can win the ball in the air from crosses and clear it with their head. They also need to be strong and have decent passing, so it’s not just a case of clearing it to the opposition. Full backs? Ideally, you want someone with some pace so they can beat the opposing wingers and wide midfielders if they decide to overlap. Then tackling is of course a huge attribute for any defender. Here are 10 of the very best young defenders in FIFA 19.

Our pick of the lot goes - without a doubt - to Matthijs De Ligt. The 18-year-old Dutch centre back is rock solid in Ajax’s defence and with a potential of 91, you’re going to have to fork out a lot for him but it will undoubtedly be worth it. He’ll be a star in the future, given enough time.
