FIFA 21: Who are the highest rated players in this year's game?

  • Alex Batt

EA Sports have officially revealed the player ratings for FIFA 21, and the top 10 are simply incredible.

As you can expect, the usual candidates are right near the top again, with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski being the three highest rated players.

However, it’s if you are a Liverpool fan that you should be most satisfied with what you are seeing.

Three of their star men make the top 10, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk all making the top 10 list.

Funnily enough, they are all rated the same as well, sitting on a 90 rating.

The Liverpool trio are joined by Barcelona duo Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Lionel Messi, who are 7th and first respectively. 

Yes, Messi is the greatest player on the game, beating his long-term rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sixth is Atletico Madrid’s shot-stopper Jan Oblak, while Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne comes in at fifth.


Neymar Jr is fourth, just behind Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski. Then comes Ronaldo in second, just behind his main rival.

The full list of the top 10 can be seen below, along with their official ratings:

10) Mohamed Salah – Liverpool – 90

9) Sadio Mane – Liverpool – 90

8) Virgil van Dijk – Liverpool – 90

7) Marc-André ter Stegen – Barcelona – 90

6) Jan Oblak – Atletico Madrid – 91

5) Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City – 91

4) Neymar Jr – PSG – 91

3) Robert Lewandowski – Bayern Munich – 91


2) Cristiano Ronaldo – Juventus – 92

1) Lionel Messi – Barcelona – 93

So there we have it for another year, there are the top 10 players in the new game.

Most of them really explain themselves, it’s very hard to argue with any of them making the list, especially given how good they’ve been in the past year or so.

We for one cannot wait to use them on Ultimate Team… when we get enough coins to afford them that is!

Who knows, maybe we’ll be lucky and pack one of them in a 7.5k pack… then again, maybe pigs will fly.
