FIFA 16 ratings: Eden Hazard named as best Chelsea player

Published 10 Comments

It will be of no surprise to Chelsea fans that Eden Hazard has been named the club's best player in FIFA 16's player ratings, released today ahead of the game's much anticipated release.

The Belgian international scooped the PFA Player of the Year prize last season on his way to helping Jose Mourinho's side claim the Premier League title, and his efforts have earned him an 89 rating. That makes him the highest rated Premier League player in the game.

Hazard is two marks clear of his nearest rival, Cesc Fabregas, while Diego Costa and Thibaut Courtois are a further mark back. That's enough to make Courtois the highest rated Premier League goalkeeper in the game as well.

Chelsea are one of ten clubs that are available to be used in the FIFA 16 demo, which is now available for users to download and try for the first time.

Radamel Falcao's 83 rating raised more than a few eyebrows amongst Chelsea fans, who took to Twitter to register their dismay. One wrote: "Falcao's rating in FIFA 16 got me like 😳😂", while another added: "How the **** has Falcao managed to get an 83 rating on fifa?"

The Colombian striker has managed one goal for Chelsea since signing on loan in the summer and is yet to start a league game, having flopped badly with Manchester United last term. He scored just four Premier League goals for the Red Devils, who opted against signing him on a permanent basis.


Elsewhere John Terry is evidently still rated highly by game designers EA Sports, who have handed the former England international an 85 rating, two more than defensive partner Gary Cahill.  Summer signings Pedro (83), Asmir Begovic (82), Baba Rahman (78) and Papy Djilobodji (78) are placed ninth, 13th, 17th and 18th on the Chelsea list respectively. 

With the international break almost over, the Premier League action gets back under way this weekend, with Chelsea aiming for only their second league win of the season. They take on Everton and will likely face top summer transfer target John Stones, who only managed to secure a 77 rating in the game.
