FIFA 21 player ratings are starting to be revealed as we draw closer to that October 9 release date. Here, you can find the strongest players in the game. 

With the release of FIFA 21 on the horizon, Ultimate Team fans will be eyeing up some early choices for how they want to construct their team.

The silky skills of Kevin De Bruyne would obviously be ideal and the lightning pace of Christian Pulisic is also a good building block, but there is another key aspect to think about as well – strength and overall physicality.

Of course, being strong is usually more ideal for defenders – you want bruisers like Virgil van Dijk and Kalidou Koulibaly – but it doesn’t hurt to have them spread around your team in other positions.
