21. Sergio Ramos - 88 (FIFA 21 rating: 89)

It was an injury-hit 2020/21 season for Ramos. He wasn't at his very best in the 21 games he featured in.

After a disappointing 2019/20 season, Kante was well and truly back to his best in 2020/21. He put in some blistering displays towards the end of the season as Chelsea won the Champions League.

Fernandes recorded 18 goals and 14 assists in the Premier League for Man United. Just ridiculous numbers for a midfielder.

Kimmich is so important to how Bayern play. He's a midfielder than can do it all.

Benzema, now 33, continues to get better and better at Real Madrid.

8. Mohamed Salah - 90 (FIFA 21 rating: 90)

Liverpool had a disappointing season but Salah can hold his head up high. He scored 31 goals in all competitions.

De Bruyne had another fantastic campaign with Man City as they won the Premier League and FA Cup.

4. Neymar - 91 (FIFA 21 rating: 91)

Messi should be crowned the best player on FIFA 22. He was incredible once again in 2020/21 and ended the season by leading Argentina to Copa America glory.
