eFootball Pro Evolution 2020 is already on sale and PES fans are scrambling to assemble a solid squad to win their way through the different modes of the game. To help you make the best possible selections, check out FTBL Gamer’s list of the 10 best left midfielders (LMF) in PES 2020 below:
10. Ryan Fraser
Ryan Fraser may not have got his dream move to a bigger club over the summer, but his stock has risen immensely over the past few seasons with some jaw-dropping performances for Bournemouth. Last season he scored 7 and assisted 14 in 38 league games. Technically gifted and a good passer of the ball, Frazer’s low centre of gravity helps him wade off defenders as he looks to create chances for his teammates. His impressive stats last season earned him an upgrade to 80 overall rating on PES 2020 with in-game abilities like 89 balance, 89 speed and 82 dribbling.
9. Roberto Pereyra
After a string of impressive performances for Watford, Roberto Pereyra managed to break into the Argentine national team set-up. His pace, trickery, and crossing abilities are a powerful weapon that any top side would love to have at its disposal. His versatility means he can play across the midfield as well as on both sides of the wing. He is rated 81 overall in PES 2020 and his in-game stats include 83 dribbling, 84 speed and 85 acceleration.
8. Filip Kostić
Club: Eintracht Frankfurt
After a few promising seasons for Hamburger SV, Filip Kostić earned a loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt where he scored 6 goals and assisted his teammates 10 times in 34 league games last season. He added 4 more goals and 2 assists in Frankfurt’s run to the Europa League semi-final last season. Pacey and technically gifted, Filip Kostić can play either on both sides of the wing or as a forward. His 81 overall rating makes him a decent option for PES fans who would love a pacey winger running up and down on the wings for 90 minutes. His in-game abilities include 81 kicking power, 80 dribbling and 87 speed.
7. Marcos Acuña
Club: Sporting CP
If you’re a big fan of wingers who bump from one end of the pitch to another in a matter of seconds, you’re going to love Acuna. The Argentine winger had a decent season with Sporting CP with a goal and 9 assists to his name. Obviously not the most clinical of wingers, Acuna’s main strength is his stamina and inch-perfect set pieces. Many of his 9 assists came from set-pieces and some excellently whipped cross. In PES 2020, his in-game stats include 82 dribbling, 82 curl and 85 stamina.
6. Raphaël Guerreiro
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Raphaël Guerreiro has grown in leaps and bound since he moved to Borussia Dortmund in the 2016/2017 season. From a reliable defender, Guerreiro’s passing abilities and unbelievable technical skills have seen him deployed as a right-winger. Wherever he’s called to play, you can be sure that the Portuguese star will deliver. PES fans who love versatile players will no doubt enjoy having Guerreiro on their team and with statistics like 85 dribbling, 89 tight possession and 86 lofted pass in PES 2020, it’s easy to see why.
5. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco
Club: Dalian Yifang
When you’re 24 years old and at the top of your game, moving from a huge Spanish club to one in the less prestigious China Super League (CSL) is hardly the most ambitious of transfer moves, but that’s exactly what Carrasco did. As many predicted, it was a move he has come to regret as the riches in Asia haven’t been enough to keep the Belgian footballer happy. However, this hasn’t affected his on-field performances, and Carrasco has been producing dominant performances for his Chinese club. But with the lower overall level of competition in the CSL and his incredible talent, he’s expected to be that good. He has steadily been downgraded over the years in different instalments of Pro Evolution Soccer and this year he has been downgraded to 82. Still, his impressive in-game abilities mean he can still be a great asset to any team. Carrasco’s statistics include 85 kicking power, 86 dribbling and 86 speed.
4. Anthony Martial
Club: Manchester United
Despite bursting onto the scene a few years ago with so much potential, Anthony Martial is still finding his feet in Manchester United. Omitted from his country’s squad that went ahead to win the World Cup in 2018, Martial has had a difficult few years that he’d love to forget. Last season, the winger started 18 games and scored 10 goals while providing 2 for his teammates. His tally is no doubt decent, but such is his talent that many expect more from the winger. His 83 overall rating on PES 2020 is respectable for any 24 year old, while his key in-game abilities include 83 finishing, 87 dribbling and 88 speed.
3. Marco Asensio
Club: Real Madrid
Marco Asensio announced himself to the world two seasons ago after a string of impressive performances for Real Madrid. Skillful, technically gifted and with a quality left foot, the Spanish winger was expected to be the star of Real Madrid last season after Ronaldo left for Juventus. Unfortunately, Asensio and the rest of his teammates had a miserable season that they would like to quickly put behind them. His not so impressive showing last season meant he was downgraded to 83 on PES 2020. His most impressive in-game stats are 89 kicking power, 86 dribbling and 86 speed.
2. Felipe Anderson
Club: West Ham United
After his big-money move to West Ham United, a lot was expected from Felipe Anderson. It seems the pressure got to him as he had a slow start to life in the English Premier League last season. However, the tricky Brazilian winger recovered just in time to produce a spectacular 9 goals and 4 assist in 36 Premier League games. His performances earned him an upgrade to 83 overall with in-game attributes like 84 kicking power, 88 dribbling and 88 speed.
1. Ivan Perisic
Club: Bayern München
Ivan Perisic has been up there amongst the best wingers in the game for some time now. His dribbling skills, crossing, and accurate shooting ability are all a winger needs to excel in his position. After another impressive season for Inter Milan, he finally got his dream move to German giants Bayern München. Despite being 30 years old, he has managed to keep his 84 overall rating from PES 2019. His in-game stats in PES 2020 include impressive abilities like 83 kicking power, 84 ball control and 86 speed.
