So, to improve this area of your game?

Use the shoot button to head in your own box every time
This is THE most important tip for defending headers in FIFA 17. By using the shoot button your player will attack the ball more aggressively than just using the pass button. This will therefore stop you getting pushed/nudged off the ball by an attacker when they are trying to head the ball. What it may result in, is heading the ball less accurately into touch or back to the opposition but that is better than conceding a goal, right?

Attack the ball
It is of utmost importance that you move your player TOWARDS the ball and that will stop opposition players getting in front of your player who is attempting to win the header.

The best method to do this is to fully power up your header and then tap several times very quickly. Do this, coupled with moving towards the ball and then directing the header out of the box and we promise you will start to win the vast majority of aerial duels in your box.
