The player ratings for FIFA 21 have been released, with Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi retaining his No 1 placing in the world’s most popular football game with an overall rating of 93.

Juventus (Piemonte Calcio in FIFA for licensing reasons) and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo narrowly missed out on securing top spot as he slotted in second at 92.

Liverpool forwards Salah and Mane have both made the top 10 rated players in FIFA 21 (PA)

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski props up the top three at 91, while Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is the first Premier League player in the list at No 4.

Neymar slots in ahead of teammate Kylian Mbappe at 91 and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is the only goalkeeper to make the top ten as he is given the same rating as the Brazilian playmaker.
