EA SPORTS has continued to roll out FIFA 21 player ratings, showing fans who will be among the highest-rated Ultimate Team cards at each position on the field for next season.

Stars from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and other top divisions are given OVR ratings in every FIFA game. These reflect the performances from the past season, and they’ve already caused a debate about which players deserve what.

EA rolled out the list of the top 100 overall players on September 10, and have followed that up with lists of the top 20 players at each position – wingers, midfielders, strikers, defenders, and goalkeepers.

Here, we’ll look at all of the new positional ratings and how they compare with one another as the top-20 lists are subsequently released.

FIFA 21 Top 20 Wingers

FIFA 20 Winger
EA Sports
Liverpool’s Sandio Mané is one of the top five wingers is FIFA 21.

Wingers are attacking midfielders set up in a wide position in order to facilitate attacks and crossing passes to the inside. Standing out on the wing usually requires great pace and dribbling stats to provide cut-backs or crosses from which strikers can score more easily, and all of these players listed below should be well-prepared for that.

  1. Lionel Messi – RW (93)
  2. Neymar – LW (91)
  3. Mohamed Salah – RW (90)
  4. Sandio Mané – LW (90)
  5. Eden Hazard – LW (88)
  6. Raheem Sterling – LW (88)
  7. Angel Di Maria – RW (87)
  8. Jadon Sancho – RM (87)
  9. Heung Min Son – LM (87)
  10. Bernardo Silva – RW (87)
  11. Serge Gnabry – RM (85)
  12. Riyad Mahrez – RW (85)
  13. Lorenzo Insigne – LW (85)
  14. Marcus Rashford – LM (85)
  15. Leroy Sané – LM (85)
  16. Pizzi – RM (84)
  17. Raphaël Guerreiro – LM (84)
  18. Mikel Oyarzabal – LW (84)
  19. Kingsley Coman – LM (84)
  20. José Callejón – RM (84)

FIFA 21 Top 20 Central Midfielders

Casemiro FIFA 21
EA Sports
Casemiro might not be the highest rated Midfielder, but he’s certainly up near the top.

Midfielders are generally positioned on the field between their team’s defenders and forwards in football, meaning the majority of action should (ideally) happen somewhere on their turf.

While the number of midfielders on a team and their assigned roles depends on your team’s specific formation, they’ll be a crucial part no matter how you decide to set up, and any of these top-20 players should be a welcome addition.

  1. Kevin De Bruyne – CAM (91)
  2. Casemiro – CDM (89)
  3. Joshua Kimmich – CDM (88)
  4. Toni Kroos – CM (88)
  5. N’Golo Kanté – CDM (88)
  6. Luka Modrić – CM (87)
  7. Bruno Fernandes – CAM (87)
  8. Fabinho – CDM (87)
  9. Sergio Busquets – CDM (87)
  10. Thomas Müller – CAM (86)
  11. Paul Pogba – CM (86)
  12. Marco Verratti – CM (86)
  13. Alejandro Gómez – CAM (86)
  14. Jordan Henderson CDM (86)
  15. David Silva – CAM (86)
  16. Thiago – CM (85)
  17. Kai Havertz – CAM (85)
  18. Luis Alberto – CAM (85)
  19. Hakim Ziyech – CAM (85)
  20. Marco Reus – CAM (85)

FIFA 21 Top 20 Centrebacks

EA Sports
They don’t come more solid in the backline than Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.

Centre Backs are those brave players who, as the name implies, defend the area directly in front of their own goal from opposing Strikers and Central Midfielders. They’re the one’s you’ll most likely see sliding to tackle and getting in the way of headers and crosses, so expect some fine defensive stats from all the players on the list below.

  1. Virgil van Dijk (90)
  2. Sergio Ramos (89)
  3. Kalidou Koulibaly (88)
  4. Aymeric Laporte (87)
  5. Giorgio Chiellini (87)
  6. Gerard Piqué (86)
  7. Mats Hummels (86)
  8. Raphaël Varane (86)
  9. Marquinhos (85)
  10. Matthijs de Ligt (85)
  11. Thiago Silva (85)
  12. Milan Škriniar (85)
  13. Clément Lenglet (85)
  14. Leonardo Bonucci (85)
  15. Toby Alderweireld (85)
  16. Diego Godín (85)
  17. Stefan de Vrij (84)
  18. David Alaba (84)
  19. Felipe (84)
  20. Fernandinho (84)

FIFA 21 Top 20 Fullbacks

Alexander-Arnold FIFA 21
EA Sports
Liverpool’s Alexander Arnold joins teammate Virgil van Dijk as some of the best defenders at their positions this year.

Like Centre Backs, Full-backs are primarily responsible for defending the outside of their half of the field from attacking players on the opposing team. Where centre’s guard the centre (obviously) Full-backs cover basically everything else, this means they do a lot of running so you can expect highly decent speed and defending stats from all the players below:

  1. Trent Alexander-Arnold – RB (87)
  2. Andrew Robertson – LB (87)
  3. Daniel Carvajal – RB (86)
  4. Jordi Alba – LB (86)
  5. Kyle Walker – RB (85)
  6. Ricardo Pereira – RB (85)
  7. Alex Sandro – LB (85)
  8. Lucas Digne LB (84)
  9. Alex Telles – LB (84)
  10. Nicolás Tagliafico – LB (84)
  11. César Azpilicueta – RB (84)
  12. Jesús Navas – RB (84)
  13. Grimaldo – LB (84)
  14. Aaron Wan-Bissaka – RB (83)
  15. Juran Bernat – LB (83)
  16. Kieran Trippier – RB (83)
  17. Ferland Mendy – LB (83)
  18. Marcelo – LB (83)
  19. João Cancelo – RB (83)
  20. Marcos Acuña – LB (83)

FIFA 21 Top 20 Goalkeepers

Jan Oblak FIFA 21
EA Sports
EA Sports obviously agrees with those who consider Atlético Madrid’s Jan Oblak one of the best keepers in the world.

Keeper is without a doubt the most important job on the pitch in football. Without a keeper in the box, there’s simply no one to stop the ball from finding the back of the net every time a shot’s online.  Luckily, FIFA 21 brings together the best goalies from around the world to choose from for your FUT squad, with the top 20 listed below.

  1. Jan Oblak (93)
  2. Alisson (90)
  3. Marc-André ter Stegen (90)
  4. Thibaut Courtois (89)
  5. Manuel Neuer (89)
  6. Ederson (88)
  7. Samir Handanovič (88)
  8. Keylor Navas (87)
  9. Hugo Lloris (87)
