With Bruno Fornaroli leading the line and quality wingers either side, Melbourne City have been deemed to have a better attack than three English Premier League sides on FIFA 19.

The latest offering from EA Sports, which releases globally on September 28, has handed Warren Joyce's attack an overall rating of 76.

Not only is it the highest rating by some margin for an A-League side, it also puts City ahead of Premier League trio Burnley, Cardiff City and Fulham.

The impressive rating is due largely to Fornaroli, with the striker himself boasting an overall rating of 76.

The Uruguayan has shone in the A-League since arriving in 2015 with the 31-year-old scoring 54 times across 76 appearances. 

Despite on paper having a very strong attack, City were underwhelming in front of goal last season scoring just 41 times and struggling early on without an injured Fornaroli.

With Fornaroli's presence proving key to City highly rated FIFA 19 attack, Burnley (75), Cardiff (72) and Fulham (74) have all seemingly suffered for not having a superstar striker of their own.
