Arsenal got their third consecutive win in the Premier League with 4-1 victory over Hull City on Saturday, ranking fourth behind Manchester City, Everton and Tottenham. While, in this page, let’s check Arsenal’s top 10 players on FIFA 17.
10. Francis Coquelin – 81
Francis Coquelin in at number 10 after being handed an 81-rated boost from his 79 on FIFA 16, with 81 physical his highest attribute.
9. Olivier Giroud – 83
Up one from 82, Olivier Giroud has been rewarded for another solid season in the Premier League, where he scored 16 goals.
8. Per Mertesacker – 83
Speed is everything on FIFA and even Per Mertesacker’s 88 defending can’t make up for that.
7. Aaron Ramsey – 84
Up two from last year’s 82 rating, the Welshman has 69 pace, 77 shooting, 80 passing and 81 dribbling. His Euro 2016 performances undoubtedly played a role in his rise.
6. Granit Xhaka – 84
The 23-year-old impressed in France for Switzerland and particularly flaunted his passing and strength, for which he’s been given 81 and 77 respectively.
5. Laurent Koscielny – 85
A wonderful defender with 78 pace and 85 defending, the Frenchman is a must-have considering he’ll keep most strikers at bay if used correctly.
4. Santi Cazorla – 86
Despite an injury-ravaged season, Santi Cazorla has been given 86 on FIFA 17, alongside 78 shooting, 85 passing and 86 dribbling. The Spaniard has made a fine start to the new term and perhaps justified his boost with two goals and two assists in five appearances.
3. Alexis Sanchez – 87
Alexis Sanchez has performed great in his two seasons at Arsenal, a rating higher than 87 is perhaps deserved. His Ultimate Team card still makes for impressive reading, though, with 86 pace, 82 shooting and 88 dribbling the pick of his statistics.
2. Petr Cech – 88
After making FIFA 16’s Premier League Team of the Season, Petr Cech’s 88-rated boost doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The 34-year-old was brilliant for Arsenal in his debut season and has been rewarded for that with 83 diving, 90 handling, 85 reflexes and 85 positioning.
1. Mesut Ozil – 89
Arsenal’s highest-rated player at 89 is Mesut Ozil. 86 passing for someone who recorded 19 assists in the Premier League last season is a bit odd, especially so considering the Germany international’s game revolves around playing eye-of-the-needle passes.
