Every year, EA SPORTS ranks the best players in the world for its FIFA games – from the Bundesliga in Germany, La Liga in Spain, to the Premier League in England. The FIFA 22 player ratings are bound to reward class performances and ruffle some feathers.
FIFA 22 will be the first game in the series to have debuted on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 consoles, so the expectations are stacked high.
In the last 12 months, since FIFA 21 launched, almost every domestic league season has had some big surprises. The Ligue 1 trophy went to Lille, who pipped PSG by a point to break their winning run, and Chelsea denied Manchester City a historic season by beating them in the Champions League final.
With so many top players moving clubs, like Sergio Aguero to Barcelona, Sergio Ramos leaving Real Madrid, and Georginio Wijnaldum moving to PSG – let’s run through how the top 50 players in the FIFA 22 Ratings Collective have shaped up this time around.
Don’t forget, acquiring world-class players in FIFA 22 begins by getting the best start possible in Ultimate Team and using your time effectively in Early Access. So, check out our Early Access guide to ensure you stay ahead of the competition.
