Finding a player with 5* skills is crucial for any Ultimate Team, and there are plenty of top names to choose from in FIFA 21.

There's nothing like terrorising an opponent with some quick flicks and tricks, and FIFA 21's improved gameplay mechanics gives players even more ways to beat an opponent. We're in for some real fun.

Here are the nine top skillers in FIFA 21.

9. Hakim Ziyech - 85

One of the reasons Chelsea fans are so excited to see Hakim Ziyech in action is his flashy skills.

Known as one of the game's top dribblers, Ziyech tore defences apart with Ajax and is expected to do the same in the Premier League as part of Frank Lampard's new-look Blues.

8. Memphis Depay - 85

Lyon's Memphis Depay is never scared to pull a trick or two out of his bad when needed.

The Dutchman has long been one of FIFA's top dribblers, with his blend of trickery and power making him perfect for almost any player.

7. Riyad Mahrez - 85

A core part of many Premier League sides, Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez is well known for his fast feet.

FIFA 21's new Advanced Dribbling mechanic will make Mahrez's 90 dribbling feel even higher, so he's a must-buy for any new player who's lucky enough to rack up the coins early on.

6. Paul Pogba - 86

There's a reason Manchester United's Paul Pogba is known as one of the most complete players in Ultimate Team - there's literally nothing he cannot do.

With elite passing, shooting and dribbling, Pogba would be a whole lot of fun to play with anyway, but when you add his 5* skills into the mix, you've got a deadly midfielder at your disposal.

5. Jadon Sancho - 87

Part of what makes Jadon Sancho so exciting is his lighting-quick feet and outrageous dribbling. They're a large part of the reason he bagged 20 goals and 20 assists in all competitions last year.

Few players on FIFA 21 can match Sancho's 91 dribbling, so he'll be able to terrorise almost any defender around.

4. Ángel Di María - 87

Ángel Di María often doesn't get the credit he deserves for Paris Saint-Germain's success.

Now 32 years old, Di María can still dribble with the best of them, and you can regularly catch him flying down the right wing in Paris. He picked up 23 assists in all competitions last season because defenders simply couldn't handle him.

3. Roberto Firmino - 87

Few players in the world play as unique of a role as Roberto Firmino. He's a striker who isn't focused on scoring goals, but instead creating chances for his team-mates.

The Liverpool man's quick feet are a large part of the reason why he's so successful at his job. He can find space and pull off a trick or two to ensure nobody can get in his way.

2. Kylian Mbappé - 90

Kylian Mbappé is doing all he can to shake off the reputation of being one of the world's top 'youngsters'. Instead, he's one of the world's best, full stop.

His FIFA 21 card definitely reflects that. He brings 96 pace and 86 shooting to go alongside his 91 dribbling. That'd be hard enough to stop even if he didn't have 5* skills.

1. Neymar - 91

If you've ever watched Neymar in action, you'll know that 5* skills hardly does him justice.

The PSG star is never scared of doing something utterly ridiculous on the pitch to humiliate his opponents, and the terrifying thing is that he's good enough to pull it off.
