Gerrard's team-mate Robbie Keane, New York's David Villa and Iraola, and Toronto's Michael Bradley conclude the top 10, all with a rating of 80.

What might surprise a few is that New York's Frank Lampard is just outside of this top ten in eleventh.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder has only received a rating of 79, the same as Sounders' Obafemi Martins and Galaxy's Giovani Dos Santos, who are twelfth and thirteenth respectively.

New York City looks like the team to be when playing as MLS sides on the new addition of the popular football game, as they have four players featured in the top 20.
