A handful of teams have started to reveal their best player ratings for FIFA 21. Here, we take a look at AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, and Chelsea. 

As is tradition before a new FIFA is released, EA SPORTS have begun their drip release of ratings. The Top 100 cards, which are headlined by Lionel Messi, have already been revealed.


However, fans want more. They want to know how their favorite club is shaping up, and if there are going to be a few hidden gems when it comes to starting anew with FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Three partner clubs of EA – AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, and Chelsea – have all revealed some of their best players as well, including a few cards that missed out on the Top 100 rankings. So, let’s dive into them.


AC Milan FIFA 21 ratings

Kicking off with AC Milan, they are perhaps unsurprisingly headlined by goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. The Italian international has been one of AC’s best players for a few years now and is always a stand out when it comes to Serie A ‘keepers.

Behind him, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alessio Romagnoli both have 83 overalls at opposite ends of the pitch. Zlatan’s 88 shooting will get players excited to use him again.

New signing Sandro Tonali also makes into AC’s top-rated players with a 77 overall, so he’ll likely be a solid building block when the game finally releases.

  1. Gianluigi Donnarumma – 85
  2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – 83
  3. Alessio Romagnoli – 83
  4. Theo Hernandez – 80
  5. Simon Kjaer – 80
  6. Hakan Calhanoglu – 79
  7. Ante Rebic – 79
  8. Mateo Musacchio – 78
  9. Sandro Toanli – 77
  10. Franck Kessie – 77
  11. Conti – 77
  12. Calabria – 76
  13. Lucas Paqueta – 76
  14. Bennacer – 75
  15. Brahim Diaz – 74
  16. Rafael Leao – 74
  17. Saelemaekers – 72
  18. Maldini – 59

Borussia Dortmund FIFA 21 ratings

Switching focus to Borussia Dortmund, and we already know that Erling Haaland is going to be one of the deadliest strikers in the game. The Norwegian simply can’t stop scoring goals and has been given a huge boost.

He’ll be supported by the likes of Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard, who have been 84 and 83 respectively. Jadon Sancho, a target for Manchester United, wasn’t included in the reveal, but he was a part of the Top 1oo list, and he’s likely to be Dortmund’s highest-rated player if he stays.

  1. Jadon Sancho – 87
  2. Mats Hummels – 86
  3. Marco Reus – 85
  4. Erling Haaland – 84
  5. Axel Witsel – 84
  6. Roman Burki – 84
  7. Julian Brandt – 84
  8. Thorgan Hazard – 83
  9. Emre Can – 82
  10. Thomas Meunier – 81
  11. Thomas Delaney – 81
  12. Lukasz Piszczek – 80
  13. Nico Schulz – 80
  14. Dan-Axel Zagadou – 79
  15. Marwin Hitz – 78
  16. Manuel Akjani – 78
  17. Mahmoud Dahoud – 76
  18. Marius Wolf – 76
  19. Marcel Schmelzer – 74
  20. Jude Bellingham – 69
  21. Gio Reyna – 68

Finally, after a stunning transfer window that has seen the arrival of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, and Thiago Silva – Chelsea are in prime position to challenge at the top of the Premier League.


Their new signings are all boosted from FIFA 20, but the Blues’ best player is a holdover from last year – with N’Golo Kante clocking in with another 88 overall.

  1. N’Golo Kante – 88
  2. Thiago Silva – 85
  3. Timo Werner – 85
  4. Kai Havertz – 85
  5. Hakim Ziyech – 85
  6. Cesar Azpilicueta – 84
  7. Jorginho – 83
  8. Mateo Kovacic – 83
  9. Christian Pulisic  – 81
  10. Marcos Alonso – 81
  11. Toni Rudiger – 81
  12. Ben Chilwell – 81
  13. Kurt Zouma – 80
  14. Mason Mount – 80
  15. Olivier Giroud – 79

Of course, these aren’t all the ratings from each team – we are still awaiting the ratings of anyone who is lower than these, but it is interesting to get an early look at them.


As we continue to build towards the release of FIFA 21, more and more ratings are set to be revealed, so keep checking back with Dexerto and UltimateTeamUK for more.


Viral FIFA 21 clip shows why Virgil van Dijk is worth 500k FUT coins

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is worth north of 500,000 coins in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, which is an absolutely whopping amount to pay at this stage of the game. But, a viral clip of the defender proves why his price tag is so enormous. 

Last season, when the Merseyside club made securing their 19th English league title a breeze, some fans were calling for their Dutch center back to be given a statue. Some in jest, while others were quite serious about it for the future.


He’s been a real game changer for the club since his arrival from Southampton, and earned a 90-rated Ultimate Team card in FIFA 21.

With the game rolling out on October 9 for all editions, there’s not really been enough time for the market values of players to settle just yet. According to the FUTWIZ database, he’s valued at over half a million already, on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Van Dijk FIFA 21 clip goes viral

As usual, members of the game’s online community have been sharing game clips and screenshots of their best findings since release day.

One video in particular has been doing the rounds like no other, showing the central defender making the most of new AI blocks in-game. Though, it’s fair to say it’s no ordinary block.

The ball comes pinging off the left boot of Mohamed Salah, and looks set to hit the top corner of the goal, before van Dijk flies across to the ball and turns it behind for a corner in extraordinary fashion. You’ve got to see this.


The video, posted by Xav Salazar, has racked up over 2.6 million views at the time of writing. Nobody can quite believe what they’re seeing, but yes, van Dijk looks to be worth the hefty price tag he commands.

If he was doing this game in, game out, you wouldn’t even need a goalkeeper.
