EA SPORTS have officially published their top 100 player ratings for FIFA 21. Here, you can find the top 10 highest rated players in Serie A in the latest addition to the franchise.

Juventus have dominated the top player rankings in recent times, boasting the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini, and others, and that hasn’t changed a lot this year.


As fans will know by now, players are always getting better or falling off a bit in football — and their performances will no doubt impact their rating. After we predicted Serie A’s highest-rated players back in May, we now have official confirmation on the best players in the league.

FIFA 21 Serie A top rated players

Juventus FIFA 21 Piemonte Calcio
There are four Juventus players in the top 10 including, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Here’s who tops the list in the Italian top flight:

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo (92)
  2. Paulo Dybala (88)
  3. Samir Handanovič (88)
  4. Kalidou Koulibaly (88)
  5. Ciro Immobile (87)
  6. Wojciech Szczęsny (87)
  7. Giorgio Chiellini (87)
  8. Alejandro Gómez (86)
  9. Romelu Lukaku (85)
  10. Luis Alberto (85)

It’s worth noting that there are also several players rated 85 alongside Luis Alberto and Lukaku, who has already complained about FIFA 21 ratings, such as Diego Godin, Christian Eriksen, Alex Sandro and many more.

Now, scroll down and take a look at our predictions from back in May, too, to see how far off we were!

FIFA 21 Serie A top rated players: Predictions

10. Lautaro Martinez (87)

OVR: 81 > 87


If there’s one player on this list that’s improved more than anybody could have expected, it’s Lautaro. The Inter striker has had a rise that could be compared to Kylian Mbappe since signing for the Milan-based outfit, with 11 goals and three assists in the league this season. Get him right in the top 10.

9. Lorenzo Insigne (87)

OVR: 87 > 87

He’s not just Napoli’s captain and possibly their most exciting player, but Insigne is one of those wingers any side in Europe would snap up in a heartbeat. We wouldn’t be shocked to see him get an 87 base rating in the next title, just like last year.

Will Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne be one of Serie A’s top rated players? We think so.

8. Luis Alberto (87)

OVR: 84 > 87

Once a Liverpool outcast, an abandoned project from Brendan Rodgers’ time at the club. Luis Alberto never really found his form at Anfield, nor was he given the chance.


That said, he’s growing into one of Europe’s most creative and influential midfielders. Having received four special cards in FIFA 20, the time has come to give the Spaniard a proper boost.

7. Romelu Lukaku (87)

OVR: 85 > 87

The former Everton and Manchester United striker took a leap of faith in joining Antonio Conte at Inter Milan – and boy has it paid off.

The Beglian has slammed the ball into the back of the net 17 times in 25 games, and has played an integral role in the side’s race at the top of Serie A. 87 sounds about right.

Lukaku has enjoyed success under the wing of Antonio Conte at Inter.

6. Kalidou Koulibaly (87)

OVR: 89 > 87

Linked with every club in Europe, it seems, but the strong defender’s club Napoli haven’t had the best of seasons this time around.

That could impact his rating, just slightly, and we’re predicting an 87 as a result. That said, he might not even be there when the game comes out.

5. Wojciech Szczesny (88)

OVR: 86 > 88

Who would have thought the long-term replacement for Gianluigi Buffon was going to be an Arsenal goalkeeper caught smoking in the changing room showers, before being offloaded.

The Polish international has been a wall for Juventus of late and should be right up there with the very best.

Juventus fans will be hoping Szczesny gets an upgrade – and for them to get their kits back in FIFA 21.

4. Giorgio Chiellini (88)

OVR: 89 > 88

A rock at the back for The Old Lady, or Vecchia Signora, Giorgio Chiellini is another who has improved with age. Don’t be surprised to see him as one of the top rated players in the division, that’s all we’re saying, but maybe with a slight downgrade. Nothing major.

3. Ciro Immobile (88)

OVR: 86 > 88

Lazio have got a star on their hands with Ciro, that’s for sure. 27 goals from 26 games is our idea of a guaranteed boost in overall, and that’s exactly what the striker deserves.

Immobile is surely set for an upgrade in FIFA 21.

2. Paulo Dybala (90)

OVR: 88 > 90

If there’s one player that appeared to be rocked by the arrival of CR7 at Juventus, it was Dybala. The Argentinian looked to be taking on the role of ‘main man’ at the Turin club before Ronaldo was brought in, and struggled to make an impact last year, although it’s been a different story of late.

With seven goals behind him, and nine assists, the attacker could be destined for an improved overall in FIFA 21 – so we’re predicting an increase of two.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (94)

OVR: 93 > 94

Cristiano Ronaldo might be getting older now, at 35 years of age, but he’s not showing any signs of slowing down.

In 22 Serie A matches during the 19/20 season – before it was suspended – he had hit the back of the net 21 times. Flawless is one word to describe him and, we would suggest, he’s worthy of a one overall upgrade too.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be the league’s top rated player.

So, there you have it! The highest rated players in Serie A in FIFA 21, as well as our predictions. Do you agree with the final list? Let us know on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK.


FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.


Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.


Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.


These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.


There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.
