FIFA 21 player ratings are bound to be one of the most important pieces of news fans get in the buildup to EA SPORTS’ next installment of their flagship football series, and we’ve got predictions for the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, and more. 

The last few months have been a rollercoaster for any football fan, with the current global situation forcing many leagues to not just close their doors for live matches, but suspend competitions entirely until further notice. While some, like the English and Germany top divisions, have worked towards project restarts, others have called it a day.

That being said, we were almost done with the 2019/20 season when this all kicked off, and there’s certainly enough in terms of performances, big moments, goals, assists and clean sheets to go off when it comes to predicting top-rated pros for next year’s title.

Here, we have collected predictions from the Dexerto team for the top five divisions in Europe, including those of England, Italy, Spain, France, and Germany. Throughout the course of this article you will be able to see how we expect player ratings to turn out for the best players in those respective leagues, with a list of top 10 selections for each.

So, starting with the Premier League, let’s take a look through each of those divisions and who – pending, of course with transfers – we expect to see EA SPORTS put at the top of the tree next time around.

FIFA 21 player ratings: Predictions for all top leagues and teams 

Premier League FIFA 21 player ratings

EA SPORTS
KDB is arguably the Premier League’s most-talented player, and sits right at the top of our list.

Below are our full predictions for the top 10 players in the Premier League, reflecting not only Liverpool’s terrific season at the top of the table, but also some of the other standouts from Arsenal, Manchester City, and Chelsea as well. If you would like to read more about our selections, here is the full breakdown. 

  • N’Golo Kante (88) OVR: 89 > 88
  • Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (88) OVR: 88 > 88
  • Raheem Sterling (88) OVR: 88 > 88

Serie A FIFA 21 player ratings

EA SPORTS
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be the league’s top-rated player. Hopefully, Juventus will have their kits back in FIFA 21.

It shouldn’t be a surprise to see who we’ve picked at the summit of Serie A player ratings this year, because it’s the same as last year. Cristiano Ronaldo was astonishing for Juventus during the season, scoring 21 times before the competition was suspended. If it restarts, that tally would more than certainly increase, too. Read our full predictions breakdown here, if you like.

  • Luis Alberto (87) OVR: 84 > 87

Robert Lewandowski in FIFA 20
EA SPORTS
Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski has been on fire this season.

For the Germany Bundesliga, there have been many young stars emerge since FIFA 20 was released, so we’re expecting to see the likes of Jadon Sancho, Timo Werner (if he sticks around at RB Leipzig), and Kai Havertz feature in the top 10 for FIFA 21.

La Liga FIFA 21 player ratings

EA SPORTS
Lionel Messi is a certain lock to be La Liga’s highest rated player in FIFA 21.

It’s been a crazy season for the Spanish top flight, with Barcelona falling away from their usual high standards and Getafe flying towards the top end of the table. But, who do we think will be in the top-rated payers next year? Here are our La Liga predictions.

  • Eden Hazard (91) OVR: 91 > 91
  • Lionel Messi (95) OVR: 94 > 95

Ligue 1 FIFA 21 player ratings

EA SPORTS
You guessed it… Neymar heads our Ligue 1 player rating predictions for Ligue 1.

You might be expecting a full Paris Saint Germain team here, but it’s not exactly like that. Here are our full predictions, with Neymar at the very top.

  • Houssem Aouar (84) OVR: 81 > 84
  • Edinson Cavani (85) OVR: 88 > 85

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 9, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

Last week’s TOTW, the eighth in FIFA 21, was undoubtedly the best we’ve seen yet, so it’s going to be a tough ask for Team of the Week 9 to go one better.

There’s a good chance it could come close, however, is a huge stack of international stars in line for IF cards, including Cristiano Ronaldo, cover star Erling Haaland, and Romeulu Lukaku. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ⁠— who is planning to sue EA over his rights ⁠— could be included too.

Forwards weren’t the only stars to shine this week either. Tottenham shot-stopper Hugo Lloris and Everton’s Lucas Digne could get in-form cards, while Monaco centerpiece Cesc Fabregas pulled the strings in a 3-2 win over PSG.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Team of the Week 9 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS will release the ninth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 9 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 9 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the new FIFA 21 team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week 9 cards slip ⁠— after TOTW 7, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 9 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
