A handful of teams have started to reveal their best player ratings for FIFA 21. Here, we take a look at the powerhouse trio of Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid. 

Each year, prior to the release of the new FIFA title, fans are always trying to get an early look at their favorite team’s ratings. Will their rising star make that big leap? Will they have a youngster with high potential for career mode? It’s a never-ending annual cycle. 

With the release of FIFA 21 on the horizon, EA have already revealed the Top 100 ratings for the new game, but teams are also starting to reveal their best players too.

AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, and Chelsea were the first trio to give fans a better look at their top ratings, and now it’s the turn of Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid. 

Liverpool FIFA 21 ratings

Kicking off with the reigning Premier League champions, many of their players were included in the Top 100 reveal. 

As expected, Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Andrew Robertson make up an incredibly strong backbone but it’s in attack where Liverpool really come to the forefront. 

Both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are 90-rated in FIFA 21, and Roberto Firmino isn’t too far behind at 87 overall. Captain Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Georginio Wijnaldum make up a solid midfield too with 86, 87, and 85 ratings.

Just like their Premier League rivals, Manchester City also had a handful of players included in the Top 100 reveal – with PFA Player of the Year Kevin De Bruyne taking the top spot with a 91-overall.

There is a small gap between KDB and his next highest-rated teammates Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, and Ederson who clock in with 89, 88, and 88 ratings respectively.

  2. Sergio Aguero – 89

They have a solid 89-overall spine of Thibaut Courtois, Sergio Ramos, Casemiro, and Karim Benzema – while Eden Hazard and Toni Kroos aren’t too far away with 88 ratings.

Eden Hazard and Real Madrid in FIFA
Eden Hazard’s overall has taken a tumble in FIFA 21.

Of course, these aren’t all the ratings from each team that we’ve looked at because we are still awaiting the ratings of anyone who is lower than these. But at least we know the best starting XI and bench for each of them. 

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


How to complete Layvin Kurzawa FIFA 21 Player Moments SBC: cheapest solutions

It’s time for another fresh Player Moments SBC from EA Sports, and this time around the upgrade goes to Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa, and we have all the info on how to complete the challenges and pick up his new card as cheap as possible.

Kurzawa has been a familiar sight in the PSG backfield for years now and was the first Champion’s League defender in modern history to score a hat trick back in 2017 against Anderlecht.

His new Player Moments card doesn’t celebrate this feat, instead, it celebrates his acrobatic goal v Toulouse during the ’17/’18 Ligue 1 Season, so let’s take a look at the stats price, requirements, and more for this massive upgrade of a card.

Layvin Kurzawa Player Moments in-game stats

Stats for Kurzawa’s Player Moments card.

Like we said this 86 OVR Player moments card is a ridiculous upgrade from Kurzawa’s regular 77-rated gold card. As this celebrates him as a goalscorer, it’s no surprise that Shooting gets bumped up 18 points from 65 to 83.

Pace also sees a significant boost, up 16 points from 74 all the way to 90. Defending and Dribbling also both get 9 point increases, making this a definite upgrade at LB.

Layvin Kurzawa Player Moments price & requirements

Price-wise, Kurzawa’s new card will run you a tiny bit on the expensive side at roughly 181,000 to 206,000 FUT Coins altogether, depending on which platform you prefer to play on.

There are only two SBCs you have to knock out to get this done though, so while it might take a few coins, it shouldn’t take that much time or effort to complete. Plus, you also get a pack reward for both of the challenges. The full list of challenges and requirements is below:
