Mbappé climbs into the top 10 best rated players

Like every year, EA has lifted the veil on the top 100 players in its football simulation. A statistics contest won like last year by Lionel Messi who with his 93 average keeps one point ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

On the podium last year, Neymar fell two places, which is a lesser evil compared to the slip of Eden Hazard (4th in FIFA 20, 22nd in FIFA 21). Taking advantage of his victory in the Champions League with Bayern and a season of 59 goals in all competitions, Robert Lewandowski is propelled third in the standings this year with a score of 91.

While he had missed the top 10 by a thread last year, Mbappé now appears in the foreground with his score of 90 which earned him the honors of eighth place, not to mention his highlighting on the cover of this new annual edition. The PSG striker is obviously the best performing French player, ahead of Karim Benzema (16th).

The supporters of Liverpool, crowned champion of England for the first time in 30 years will be elated to learn that their team placed no less than 4 players in the clan of rated 90 or more: goalkeeper Alisson, defender Virgil van Dijk and of course the attacking duo Sadio Mané and Mohamed Sala.

The Top 100 Player Database is available online and EA even offers a tool to easily compare detailed stats for players of your choice.

While we are talking about FIFA, note that Electronic Arts and PlayStation will once again be partners by offering this year a PlayStation 4 500 GB pack with a controller, a boxed copy of FIFA 21, a FUT 21 voucher (includes a pack of Rare Gold Player and 3 Icons on loan for 5 matches) and a 14-day subscription to PlayStation Plus, all for $399.

For those who already have a PS4 but especially need a controller, they will also find a pack including a DualShock 4 and a code to download FIFA 21 (not to mention the FUT 21 voucher and the 14-day subscription to PlayStation Plus).
