FIFA 21 will come out in early October and – with its release quickly approaching – player ratings for every club have been revealed with Bruno Fernandes the highest rated at Manchester United. While Fernandes being the highest rated at Man United isn’t surprising, there are some player ratings that have resulted in eyebrows being raised. And, to make your eyebrows raise even higher, EA have revealed the top 1,000 player ratings.
Although FIFA 21 will not have a demo on PS4 and Xbox One, fans will still be able to play the soccer phenomenon in just a few days via EA Play. This will allow fans to sample the game for up to ten hours which is great news for those who want to experience the minute changes made to Career Mode.
But, before you’re able to play virtual football instead of going outside in the rain, below you’ll discover some of the top 1,000 player ratings.
FIFA 21 top 1,000 player ratings
The FIFA 21 top 1,000 player ratings unsurprisingly have Lionel Messi ranked first with an overall of 93.
Cristiano Ronald is ranked second in the FIFA 21 top 1,000 player ratings with an overall of 92, and he is followed by Robert Lewandoski, De Bruyne, and Neymar who are all 91 rated.
We could moan about Neymar being rated the same as Lewandoski who should have won the cancelled Ballon d’Or 2020, but we’ll hold our lips tight.
The highest rated defender in the FIFA 21 top 1,000 player ratings is Virgil Van Djik with 90, meanwhile Jan Oblak is the highest rated goalkeeper with 91.
Oblak rated the highest goalkeeper is earned, but some will understandably feel aggrieved that Manuel Neur is ranked 89 which is one below Liverpool’s Allisson while on par with Thibaut Courtois.
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are both rated 88 which screams of English bias when Heung Min Son is 87.
Antoine Griezmann is also 87 despite his poor season with Barcelona, meanwhile no Barcelona defender makes it in the top 40 of the top 1,000 player ratings.
Thomas Muller being ranked 49 with a rating of 86 feels low after what he achieved with Bayern Munich, meanwhile Romelu Lukaku somehow had the gall to complain about 85.
