Man United: The Top 10 Likely-To-Be Highest-Rated Players in FIFA 17

Man United

Let’s take a look at the potential Top 10 Manchester Players in the upcoming FIFA 17 installment with their predicted ratings.

Memphis Depay – 80

The former PSV man is not having the season he was expecting. However, he has managed to get five goals in all competition in less than 30 appearances.

Depay is still young and has a lot to offer should he get more playing time.

We expect a FIFA rating downgrade for the Dutchman to 80 from 81.

Anthony Martial – 80

Martial is Manchester United’s highest goalscorer with eight goals in the Premier League, three in Europe and two in domestic cups. He has been featured in the FUT TOTW for a record of four times; more than any United player ever.

Martial has shown real character and potential growth this season, so he will most probably get an 80 rating.

Marcos Rojo – 80

The Argentine is one of the important defenders behind Manchester United’s good number of clean sheets this season. He has however missed a ton of matches with only twelve appearances.

Rojo’s FIFA ratings will downgraded from 81 to 80 considering his missed games.

Daley Blind – 81

Blind has been Louis Van Gaal’s favorite player in the season so far with 30 Premier League starts from total 33. He has managed to keep his managers’ trust with 13 clean sheets.

The Dutch player has played in all defensive roles and has proven his versatility this season.

His FIFA 17 rating is most likely to be 81.

Ander Herrera – 82

The Spaniard has not featured in most of the matches this season but he has performed very well on those he has.

With three goals and two assists in the Premier League and two important goals in Europe, Herrera has salvaged anything he could from the season.

His rating in FIFA 17 is expected to be 82.

Chris Smalling – 83

Smalling is Manchester United’s top defender this season. He has shown aggression as well as intelligence in his games this term. The English defender has kept over 15 clean sheets and even made it into the TOTW.

FIFA 16 winter upgrades increased his initial rating of 79 to 82.

Smalling is expected to have an even more increased rating of 83 in FIFA 17

Juan Mata – 84

Mata has played almost every game for Manchester United this season, but his stats are nowhere near as expected. He hasn’t managed to score and assist as freely as he used to.

He has scored over 8 goals and assisted over 6 times this season, but the Spaniard is having a bad season if we base it on his lofty standards.

His FIFA 17 rating will not be changed from FIFA 16 which is 84.

Bastian Schweinsteiger – 85

The German World Cup winner has barely made any prominent impact on the team after his arrival this season. He has managed to play some long passes and assisted as a defensive midfielder, but his move to Old Trafford is considered as a failure.

With Schweinsteiger ageing, we can expect his ratings to drop in FIFA 17.

Wayne Rooney – 86

The Manchester United captain is performing way below his standards this season. Be it with his goal drought or absence due to injury, Wayne Rooney definitely had a bad season. However, he has managed to reach a double-figure goal tally in all competitions.

He has managed to be in one TOTW, but we don’t expect his rating to improve in FIFA 17.

David De Gea – 88

If it wasn’t for David De Gea, Manchester United would probably have one of Premier League’s worst defensive records and would not be fighting for a Champions League spot this season.

The flying Spaniard has made some impossible saves for his club throughout the season.

He will have an upgraded rating in FIFA 17, most probably 88.


10 Top FUT Legends Deserve Inclusion in FIFA 17

FIFA fans are filling internet message boards with excited messages about what they’re hoping for from the next version of the game.


With that in mind, we scanned the current list of FIFA legends for any glaring omissions, compiling the following list of the people we think are worthy of a place on next year’s game.

We thought we’d take it upon ourselves to make things a bit easier for the team at EA this year. The football and FIFA community could argue for days over whether certain players deserve inclusion in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team, but we’ve put together 10 undisputed legends of the beautiful game yet to receive the treatment that no-one could possibly argue with.

Oliver Kahn
Undoubtedly one of the great keepers in football history, Kahn has an awards résumé to match anyone in the world. He’s won eight Bundesliga titles, six DFB-Pokals (German league cups), the UEFA Cup, the UEFA Champions League and the Intercontinental Cup. And that’s not to mention his numerous personal accolades, including the only Golden Ball awarded to a goalkeeper, ever, for his performance at the 2002 World Cup. You want to argue with a man whose nicknames include’The Titan’ and ‘The Vol-Kahn-o’? Be our guest.

Carles Puyol
Without question one of the best defenders of his generation, Puyol was the anchor for a Barcelona side that won countless honours, including six La Liga trophies and three Champions Leagues. He also racked up 100 caps for Spain, and was an important leader for the squad that won Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup.

His indomitable style commanded respect from team-mates and adversaries alike, and although players like Ronaldinho, Messi, Iniesta and Xavi regularly took the plaudits, Puyol was ever-present, and as important as any of them to Barcelona’s success. We reckon there’s a good chance he’ll appear in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team, and hopefully with a rating around the 90 mark.

Rio Ferdinand
Recently retired Ferdinand is one of the more likely inclusions on this list, and whilst he’s probably not in quite the same class as someone like Carles Puyol, it’s easy to forget how good Ferdinand was in his prime.

Ferdinand was a Rolls-Royce of a centre half, with incredibly composure, near-perfect positioning and a fantastic instinct for the game. The art of the ball-playing centre back is lost these days, but Ferdinand was comfortable bringing the ball out into midfield, and picking out a great pass to set United into attack mode.

He won’t be quite as highly-rated as Puyol if they both make it in, but we’d happily have Rio in the middle of our back four.

Players like Marcelo and Dani Alves, who play the attacking full back role so well for their clubs, simply wouldn’t exist had Cafu not created that mould. He was the first to make the full back position dynamic, and his multi-faceted game included power, pace, stamina and intelligence that no-one could consistently contend with.

Not only is he one of the greatest full backs ever to lace a pair of boots, but like Cruyff, he changed the game, and outside of his many trophies and personal honours, that should earn him a deserved place as a FIFA Ultimate Team legend.

David Beckham
We’re 100 percent sure that if Beckham was even a possibility for inclusion in FIFA Ultimate Team, it would have been done already, but you can’t fault us for asking. No doubt there’s an astronomical price tag attached to any Beckham licenses, but he certainly deserves a place in any legends conversation and his record speaks for itself.

He’s won league titles in four different countries – including six Premier League titles – alongside numerous other awards. And of course, he’s still one of the greatest free kick takers of all time. Who wouldn’t want Beckham in their FUT team?

Zinedine Zidane
‘Zizou’ is beloved all over the world for his immense technical ability and elegance – when not headbutting people, at any rate – and when it comes to the players who made the beautiful game truly beautiful, Zinedine Zidane is right at the top of the list.

Like Cruyff and Maradona, Zidane had a mesmerising quality to his game, almost as though he floated with the ball, but what makes him truly special to us is his vision and team mentality. Zidane was capable of beating half a team with tricky footwork and feints, and he did so regularly, but often it was only to create a chance for a team-mate. His vision and passing were second to none, and the idea of having Zidane in our midfield has us a little giddy.

Diego Maradona
Now, we suspect there are reasons why Maradona hasn’t already been included in FIFA Ultimate Team, and those reasons are likely to keep him out again, but we’d love to see the little Argentinian grace a pitch once more. Not only would it reignite the age old discussion over who is the greatest footballer of all time (although we expect EA would keep Pele as the highest rated player, after all, he’s in their adverts), but the chance to have Pele, Maradona and Messi in the same team is just too good to pass up. Plus, you could turn handballs off for the complete Maradona experience.

Raúl González
One of the greatest strikers of all time, Raúl’s incredible career is only made more impressive by the fact that it took place at Real Madrid – arguably the most prestigious football club in the world. Raúl is the most capped played in Real Madrid history, scoring 323 goals in 741 appearances for Los Meringues, and won six La Liga titles, three UEFA Champions Leagues, and a mountain of other trophies. Oh, and he’s the only player ever to win UEFA’s Forward of the Year award three years in a row, from 2000 to 2002. Raúl is surely a lock for a legends spot in FIFA 17.

Thierry Henry
Henry was considered a flop by many when he first moved from Juventus to Arsenal in 1999, but under the expert tutelage of Arsène Wenger, the young Frenchman grew to become one of the best forwards in the world. He scored 174 goals in 254 games for Arsenal, and lead the club to a famous unbeaten season, as well as multiple national trophies.

His storied career led him to Barcelona afterwards, and he retired having won league titles in three different countries, alongside a multitude of personal honours. Henry may not have quite the pedigree of the likes of Cruyff and Ronaldo, but in his prime, he was one of the deadliest strikers the game has ever seen.

Although Cristiano will surely be a FIFA Ultimate Team legend when he retires, we’re talking a different Ronaldo. The original Ronaldo. Take 10 minutes on YouTube to remind yourself of what ‘Il Fenomeno’ was capable of in his prime, and there’s no question he should be in Ultimate Team.

One of the greatest strikers of all time, Ronaldo is a three-time FIFA World Player of the Year, two-time Ballon d’Or recipient, and won a mountain of honours at some of the biggest clubs in the world. And he won the Golden Boot at the 2002 World Cup. Get him in already, EA.


FIFA 17 Will See Big Player Rating Promotion

As a professional sports game developers, EA Sports on the assessment of player ratings can be said that the majority player ratings are accurate.

FIFA 17 Player ratings on behalf of player abilities are always talked about. But in each season, there are always some players with a blockbuster way to become a super star and their performances in the season are worth a higher rating than their regular rating. This season a number of players who start the season by scoring lots of goals and quickly becoming a star on their teams. We can predict their rating will get 100% great upgrade in FIFA 17. Here is our summary of the players will get big ratings promotion in FIFA 17.


Jamie Vardy – Leicester City

The biggest name from Leicester City is Jamie Vardy this season, Vardy has netted 21 times in the Premier League this season. His goals have helped Leicester mount a surprising title challenge that has shown no signs of slowing down. Leicester City is so close to winning the league and completing an impressive season.

Jamie Vardy is second in the Premier League goal scorers list for the season. He has 21 goals, with five games left in the season. His original overall rating in FIFA 16? 71. We can sure he is the first one will get the improved in FIFA 17, and his rating upgrade will be the biggest one, up to 80.

Kingsley Coman – Bayern Munich

Kingsley Coman is sticking around and becoming a key player for this Bayern team for years to come. One area where Coman already has an advantage is his versatility, dribbling at pace and putting devastating cut-backs into the danger area.

His overall rating in FIFA 16 is 69. That is not even close to what he has done throughout the season. He is only getting started, so the game developer and fans did not see his impressive season coming. But he should have better stats in FIFA 17.

Marcus Rashford – Manchester United

The only best news for Manchester United is they have a rising star Marcus Rashford now, who appeared in a match against FC Midtjylland and scored two goals. Days later, he scored two goals against Arsenal and one goal against Manchester City. He has scored 5 goals in his 9 first team games.

He is only in FIFA 16 Career Mode with 59 overall rating and 77 potential, so he should almost definitely become available on Manchester United’s reserve team roster for FIFA 17. And His start rating in FIFA 17 will be over 68.

Hector Bellerin – Arsenal

Bellerin has established himself as a key part of Arsene Wenger’s defence as Arsenal hunt their first league title in over a decade this season. One of the fastest players in the league, Hector’s speed and keen defensive ability – together with a fantastic work ethic – soon saw him develop as a key member of the back four.

He is actually a good signing for Career Mode in FIFA 16. He has great pace in the game but many fans and gamers believe his stats still need to be improved. He has been a good player for Arsenal this season and he could be a great right back in FIFA 17.

Julian Weigl – Borussia Dortmund

Julian Weigl is is playing fantastic football for Dortmund. The young player with the composure and class on the ball has been incredible this year.

He has a 67 overall rating in FIFA 16 but his season has been much better. He has helped Borussia Dortmund remain in second place in the Bundesliga and could see a big improvement in the next game.

Riyad Mahrez – Leicester City

This season Leicester City is so lucky to not only have Jamie Vardy, but also have Riyad Mahrez. He has been a huge part of Leicester City’s success this season as well. Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri described Mahrez and forward Jamie Vardy as “priceless” ahead of the January transfer window.

His first FIFA 16 rating was 73, that’s not bad, but in this season he played as a 80 over rated player, we think it looks like he will receive a huge ratings upgrade in FIFA 17.
