FIFA 21 ratings predictions are coming in as fans await the top 100 list scheduled to arrive before the game's release Oct. 9.
The top 100 list details the 100 highest rated players and each year fans expect Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to top the list. As a whole, the top 100 doesn't change much from year to year. The real excitement comes from which players are made walkouts, which aren't anymore and other meaningful upgrades.
Here are five Premier League players likely to receive an upgrade in FIFA 21 and a predicted rating:
FIFA 21 Ratings Predictions: 5 Upgrades Likely for Premier League Players
Trent Alexander-Arnold - Liverpool - 85 RB
TAA is one of the most important players in Liverpool's Premier League winning side. The fullback is one of the best attacking defenders in the world providing numerous assists and goals for Jurgen Klopp's team. Expect the defender to get upgraded to an 85 overall from his 83 in FIFA 20.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - Arsenal - 89 ST
Aubameyang lifted Arsenal's 14th FA Cup after defeating Chelsea 2-1 in the final. He scored 29 goals in all competitions for the Gunners and narrowly missed out on a second consecutive Golden Boot. EA Sports should give him a +1 for his 19/20 campaign. One thing fans might be concerned about is EA Sports changing his base card to a left winger considering he played most of the season in that position.
Phil Foden - Manchester City - 79 CAM
One of the emerging stars at Manchester City, Foden is expected to take over for the departing David Silva. Pep Guardiola highly rates the youngster and he's primed for a breakout year. He's currently 76 overall, so expect him to get boosted.
Andrew Robertson - Liverpool - 86 LB
Robertson is yet another piece in Liverpool's stellar defense offering just as much dynamic play as TAA on the left side of the pitch. After featuring in both the Team of the Year and the Premier League Team of the Season So Far, he's ready to become 86 overall and a walkout in FIFA Ultimate Team.
Jamie Vardy - Leicester City - 84 ST
Vardy was among the few players to receive a Winter Refresh upgrade in FIFA 20 going from 82 to 85 overall. Despite the Foxes missing out on the Champions League, Vardy finished his season by winning the league's Golden Boot. EA Sports might revert on the 85, but just by one point.
