78. FILIPE LUIS | Atletico Madrid

FIFA 18 Ratings Felipe Luis

Another solid season at left-back for Felipe Luis keeps his overall rating steady at 85, while his High Work Rate will help him build attacks from the back and get up the pitch in FIFA 18.


FIFA 18 Ratings Insigne

Lorenzo Insigne keeps improving in FIFA, having had an 81 rated basic edition in FIFA 16 and starting at 83 in FIFA 17. His return of 18 goals in Serie A last season sees him get another increase.


FIFA 18 Ratings Azpilicueta

Cesar Azpilicueta gets an increase of one overall point on last year, but most notable is his position change from left-back to centre-back following his Premier League title win in Antonio Conte's 3-5-2 system.

Having had a Ones-To-Watch version in FIFA 17, Miralem Pjanic retains his 85 rating in FIFA 18 after his debut season since joining Juventus from Roma.

74. JORDI ALBA | Barcelona

FIFA 18 Ratings Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba's 93 pace makes him one of the quickest full-backs in FIFA 18, but despite his pace staying the same, his overall rating has gone down one point from 86 last year.

73. KEYLOR NAVAS | Real Madrid

FIFA 18 Ratings Navas

Having been just 79-rated two years ago in FIFA 16, Keylor Navas' fantastic spell as Real Madrid's first choice has seen him once again come in with an 85 overall rating in FIFA 18.

72. BLAISE MATUIDI | Juventus

FIFA 18 Ratings Matuidi

Blaise Matuidi is a new arrival at Juventus, having signed from PSG in the summer for a transfer fee of up to €30.5 million and that is reflected in his 85 overall rating this year.

71. CASEMIRO | Real Madrid

FIFA 18 Ratings Casemiro

Casemiro just keeps getting better and better for Real Madrid. That is reflected in his FIFA 18 score. Back in FIFA 13, he was a silver player with a 72 rating, but after scoring in the 2017 Champions League final, he is now rated 85.


FIFA 18 Ratings Lacazette

Arsenal's new striker had all the attributes that made Arsene Wenger splash out over £46m to sign him from Lyon, and his excellent pace, shooting and dribbling stats are sure to make FIFA 18 managers want him too!

69. MIRANDA | Inter Milan

FIFA 18 Ratings Miranda

Miranda retains his 86 rating from last year, having become an integral part of the Inter Milan defence over the past two seasons following his transfer from Atletico Madrid.

68. PEPE | Besiktas

FIFA 18 Ratings Pepe

Pepe's move to Besiktas from Real Madrid gives the Turkish Super Lig a highly-rated defender both in real life and in FIFA 18. The Euro 2016 winner was rated 88 last year, but his 86 rated version will still prove extremely popular.

67. DAVID ALABA | Bayern Munich

FIFA 18 Ratings Alaba

David Alaba has long been regarded as the best left-back in the Bundesliga, and his FIFA 18 rating reflects that. It is a slight decline on last year's 87, but he retains his 86 pace score.

66. PETR CECH | Arsenal

FIFA 18 Ratings Cech

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech receives an 86 rating this season, having kept 12 clean sheets in the 2016-17 Premier League season. Only four goalkeepers had more during the campaign.

64. MARCO REUS | Borussia Dortmund

FIFA 18 Ratings Reus

Former FIFA cover star Marco Reus remains one of the highest rated players in the game, even after playing just 17 Bundesliga games last season due to injury. His four-star weak foot will keep him in demand.

63. DIEGO COSTA | Chelsea

FIFA 18 Ratings Diego Costa

Diego Costa may not be getting gametime at Chelsea, but his 86 overall rating in FIFA 18 as well as a high physical rating of 88 will surely see him included in many Premier League and hybrid squads.

62. SOKRATIS | Borussia Dortmund

FIFA 18 Ratings Sokratis

Greece international Sokratis has received an improved rating every season since joining Borussia Dortmund. His FIFA 18 version is 86 rated and has a pace score of 78, which is much higher than most central defenders in the game.

61. FRANCK RIBERY | Bayern Munich

FIFA 18 Ratings Ribery

Like last year, Franck Ribery has gained an 86 overall rating, but it is his five-star skill moves and four-star weak foot combination that will surely increase his value and usefulness in FIFA 18.

Return to top

David Luiz FIFA 18

On the back of a superb title-winning season with Chelsea, David Luiz sees his overall rating boosted two points from 84 to 86.

54. ISCO | Real Madrid

Isco FIFA 18

Alex Sandro FIFA 18

Alex Sandro nearly left Juventus this summer in a big-money move and his rise is reflected in a two-point increase to his overall rating.

35. N'GOLO KANTE | Chelsea

N'Golo Kante FIFA 18

Marco Verratti FIFA 18

Verratti's status as one of the top midfield metronomes on the planet is in no doubt and he rises two points to 87 overall on FIFA 18.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic FIFA 18

Ibrahimovic may have taken a two-point hit on his 90 overall rating on FIFA 17, but he remains one of the top strikers in the game.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang FIFA 18

Borussia Dortmund hitman Aubameyang continues to climb, adding another point to his overall rating and keeping his fearsome 96 in pace.

27. DIEGO GODIN | Atletico Madrid

Diego Godin FIFA 18

26. MATS HUMMELS | Bayern Munich

Mats Hummels FIFA 18

His team-mate Jerome Boateng may have taken a hit to his rating, but Bayern Munich fans have been compensated for that with a one-point upgrade for Hummels.

Soon to turn 33, Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil star Silva is down one point to 88 overall but still, nevertheless, a world-class central defender.

24. ARJEN ROBBEN | Bayern Munich

Arjen Robben FIFA 18

Bayern Munich winger Robben's attacking stats are still mouthwatering despite his advancing years and he gets a one-point upgrade to 88 overall.


Leonardo Bonucci FIFA 18

22. THIAGO | Bayern Munich

Thiago FIFA 18

21. PAULO DYBALA | Juventus

Paulo Dybala FIFA 18

Dybala got a one-point upgrade during the FIFA 17 ratings refresh and jumps up two more points on FIFA 18. You would not bet against him continuing to rise in coming years.

FIFA 18 Aguero

Another man who retains the overall rating he sported in FIFA 17 as Kun stays on 89.

17. GARETH BALE | Real Madrid

FIFA 18 Bale

FIFA 18 Chiellini

Always a rock for Juve, Chiellini's consistency is rewarded with a one-point boost in FIFA 18.

15.KEVIN DE BRUYNE | Manchester City

FIFA 18 De Bruyne

FIFA 18 Buffon

The Italy and Juventus legend only seems to get better with age, and those in charge at EA Sports agree as they boost his score by a point.

FIFA 18 Modric

No movement for Madrid's influential Croatian as he sits just outside the top 10.

Sergio Ramos FIFA 18

Real Madrid icon Ramos is up a point to 90 overall and overtakes Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng to be named FIFA 18's best defender.

Manuel Neuer FIFA 18

Neuer keeps his 92 rating and remains unmatched among goalkeepers, with David de Gea, his closest challenger, still two points behind him.

4. LUIS SUAREZ | Barcelona

Luis Suarez FIFA 18

Despite not being quite as prolific last season as he was in a sensational 2015-16, Suarez remains FIFA's top striker at 92 overall - though Neymar has jumped above him.


Neymar FIFA 18

Neymar keeps his 92 rating and with 92 pace and five-star weak foot and skill moves attributes to boot, he should be one of the most unplayable forwards in the game.

2. LIONEL MESSI | Barcelona

Lionel Messi FIFA 18

It's second place once again for Messi. He keeps his 93 overall rating to stay clear of Neymar and Suarez, but has not wrestled the top honour from this year's cover star.

Few will be surprised to see Ronaldo named FIFA's best player once again.

The Real Madrid star looks set to claim a fifth Ballon d'Or and will appear on the cover of this year's game. He has also been written into the storyline of Alex Hunter's career in The Journey.
