Man City, unsurprisingly, have the highest rated squad in England, on FIFA 20.
Let’s kick-off in goal. Ederson has had a huge jump in rating, now at 88, is the fourth highest-rated goalkeeper in the league. The 93 kicking is his highest attribute, probably fair, I’ve never seen a ‘keeper kick a ball as far in my life, scary talent.
At right-back, I imagine every man and his dog will be picking Kyle Walker in Ultimate Team. Not because of his 84 rating, but due to his 91 pace, that’s harsh in my opinion, I’d be giving him 95+. At left-back, controversially perhaps, Benjamin Mendy is rated better than Oleksandr Zinchenko. Despite Mendy rarely playing in the past two seasons, and Zinchenko nailing down a starting spot.
Aymeric Laporte is rightly the second-best defender in the Premier League, behind Virgil Van Dijk. Alongside him, you can opt for John Stones or Nicolas Otamendi. Both are rated 83, take your pick. The ball-playing Englishman, or tough-tackling Argentinian?
Man City’s midfield
In the holding role, Fernandinho is rated at 87. His card is so well rounded, a top player in-game and in real life. Rodri has seemingly taken his position in the starting 11, however, the Brazilian has been a top servant to Man City over the years, and will do a job when called upon later in the season.
Kevin De Bruyne is the only Man City player to be rated above 90, as he gets an upgrade to a 91 rated card in FIFA 20. His stats are ridiculous, too. 86 shooting, 92 passing and 87 dribblings. A must for any side. David Silva isn’t bad either, just the 88 passing and 89 dribbling for him. Two wonderful midfielders that are probably the best in the Premier League.
Onto the devastating forward line. Leroy Sane doesn’t make the cut, which tells you everything you need to know. Bernardo Silva lines up on the right-wing, with an 87 overall. Raheem Sterling on the left, 93 pace and 89 dribbling. I expect Walker to have something to say about Sterling having more pace than him, interesting, depends on the distance. While Sergio Aguero is City’s second highest-rated player with 89 and leads the line.
A ridiculous team in real life. A ridiculous team on FIFA 20.
