Top-Rated Premier League Players in FIFA 20: Who Will You Play?

Top-Rated Premier League Players in FIFA 20

The decade is coming to an end, and if we have learned anything, it’s that soccer fans love FIFA. Enough to keep the football simulation video game around since 1993, when it was first released. The latest installment comes decades later, with FIFA 20 released in September 2019. And even though it’s been around for a while, it seems more people are becoming attracted to playing FIFA on a Sunday afternoon. Maybe it’s because FIFA 20 features VOLTA Football. Or perhaps it’s because the selection on Netflix is winding down. Either way, new and old players alike seem to care about one thing, in particular: their player’s ratings.

EA Sports has revealed the official ratings in FIFA 20, with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar Jr. leading the pack. But really, does that surprise you? We suspect not. And for that, we’re going to focus on a niche in FIFA that might have player ratings you didn’t expect: the Premier League.

Featuring the players with the highest ratings in FIFA 20, here are the top Premier League players.

Ask any Tottenham Hotspur fan. The Belgian player joined Tottenham in 2015 and plays as a center back and occasional right back. In FIFA 20, Alderweireld has an overall rating of 87, and high individual statistics like 88 defending.

With Bernardo Silva, we have another 87 overall FIFA 20 rating. And yet, the Manchester City player is in his own category. Maybe it’s because players like Robertson, Vertonghen, and Alderweireld are all defenders, and Silva is a midfielder. Regardless, his individual stats make him stand out in a sea of 87s. The 25-year old has played as a midfielder for Manchester City since May 2017, and on FIFA 20, his highest statistics are 92 dribbling and 83 passing. Combine that with his 4/5 rating for skill moves, you can see why he works so well with Cristiano Ronaldo on the Portugal national team. 

Other stats include: 

  • 81 pace 
  • 76 shooting
  • 51 defense
  • 67 physicality
  • 3/5 weak foot

Yet another Manchester City player. Are you starting to see a pattern? David Silva is the captain of Manchester City and plays as a central or attacking midfielder. Silva is, of course, very dimensional and can also play as a second striker or winger. He shares an 88 overall rating in FIFA 20 with other Premier League players, and the 33-year old’s highest score is 89 dribbling and 4/5 skill moves. 

Other stats include:

If Pogba is the archnemesis of Mourhino, then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is mine, being the massive Tottenham Hotspur fan that I am. Still, I have to admit that the Arsenal captain is a skillful forward, and that is reflected in his statistics in FIFA 20. Sharing an overall rating of 88 in FIFA 20, Abameyang’s highest score is 94 pace and 80 dribbling. 

Other stats include: 

  • 85 shooting
  • 75 passing

Other than people like Mo Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Senegalese winger Sadio Mané is perhaps one of the most well-known players in the current Liverpool squad. He’s saved Liverpool many times during games, and likely will do the same for those playing FIFA 20. Mané shares an overall rating of 88 in FIFA 20, but his individual statistics jump out at you more than, say, David Silva. The 27-year old’s highest score in FIFA 20 is 94 pace and 88 dribbling.

Keep in mind, however, that all of these players who share an overall rating play different positions, bringing different things to the game.

Other stats include: 

  • 83 shooting
  • 77 passing
  • 44 defense 
  • 74 physicality
  • 4/5 skill moves
  • 4/5 weak foot

The Danish attacking midfielder is known for his crosses and free kicks, whipping the ball into the corner of his choosing. Eriksen has an overall rating of 88, and his highest score is 90 passing and 5/5 weak foot. He’s a visible weapon to any FIFA squad, and if his ratings aren’t enough, here’s another incentive: FIFA 20 might be the last time you see Eriksen labeled as a Tottenham player in the video game (don’t get me started). 

Other stats include: 

  • 73 pace
  • 81 shooting
  • 84 dribbling 
  • 53 defense
