FIFA 21 Player Ratings are soon to start being announced as we get closer to the full release, so let’s start looking at all the cards that we think will be featuring in the FIFA 21 Top 100!
We start off our predictions looking at Number 100 to 81, with plenty of upgraded cards, and a couple of players that haven’t hit their form in the past season.
#100 - Isco - 85 CAM
In our #100 spot we have Isco, who hasn’t really had the greatest season for Real Madrid, only registering a handful of goal contributions in 15 starts and 8 substitute appearances.
He’ll still hold an 85 rating but should receive a downgrade from an 86.
99 - Dani Carvajal - 85 RB
Next up is another Real Madrid player, with Dani Carvajal, who should definitely hold his 85 rating next year after a solid 19/20 season.
There’s potential for him to move up to an 86 rating too, seeing as he received several performance-based upgrades throughout FIFA 20.
98 - Serge Gnabry - 85 RW
Gnabry looks set to receive a good boost up to an 85 rated card this season, after an impressive Bundesliga season for Bayern, racking up 22 goal contributions in 26 starts.
#97 - Gini Wijnaldum - 85 CM
The first of many Liverpool players that will feature in the top 100 countdown, Gini Wijnaldum should be on course for a boost to an 85, following a consistent season in the Liverpool midfield that won them the Premier League.
#96 - Marcus Rashford - 85 LM
In a revived Manchester United team of late, Marcus Rashford has excelled. With this big boost of form and confidence, as well as a solid FIFA 20 season, getting a TOTSSF item, he should easily be up and around the 85 rated mark.
#95 - Wissam Ben Yedder - 85 ST
The card that many will want to forget from FIFA 20, Wissam Ben Yedder should be receiving at least an 85 rated card in FIFA 21, following his superb Ligue 1 campaign with AS Monaco, in which he netted 18 goals in 25 appearances.
We certainly aren’t looking forward to playing him in FUT Champs next year.
#94 - Jordan Henderson - 85 CM
The Liverpool captain will, without doubt, be seeing a big boost to his 83 rated FIFA 20 card. With a Premier League title to his name, and in the shortlist to win the Premier League PFA Player of the Year Award, an 85 seems very fair.
#93 - Lautaro Martinez - 85 ST
The Argentinian youngster has really found his feet this season in a strong Inter side, with a number of goals in the Champions League and Serie A. Following his upgrade to an 84 this winter, an 85 rated card in FIFA 21 seems realistic.
#92 - Josip Ilicic - 85 ST
The Slovenian had an awesome season in a superb Atalanta team last season, grabbing 21 goals in all competitions, as well as a whopping 7 performance-based upgrades throughout the course of FIFA 20.
#91 - Memphis Depay - 85 CF
The Lyon forward was having potentially one of his best seasons to date in Ligue 1 before suffering a cruciate ligament rupture in December last year. Regardless, he still earned a TOTSSF card and should be set for an upgrade to an 85 in FIFA 21.
#90 - Gianluigi Donnarumma - 85 GK
Donnarumma could potentially see a small upgrade to an 86 rated item in FIFA 21, but should easily be at least an 85 rated card after a brilliant stint between the sticks this season for AC Milan.
#89 Stefan De Vrij - 85 CB
De Vrij has arguably been Inter’s best defender this season, with 3 IFs to his name in FUT 20, along with a TOTSSF item to his name. He should easily receive at least a +1 boost for his efforts, and may even hit greater heights.
#88 Nabil Fekir - 85 CAM
Fekir has been Real Betis’ main man this year, with 8 MOTM awards to his name in La Liga from his central role. An 85 rated base item seems very likely for him next year, and again, we wouldn’t write off an even higher rated card.
#87 - Jordi Alba - 85 LB
Jordi Alba certainly will be receiving a downgrade from his 87 rated card in FUT 20, given Barcelona’s mediocre league campaign this year. Whether he goes down all the way to an 85 we’ll have to wait and see.
#86 - Clement Lenglet - 86 CB
Clement Lenglet should receive a small boost to his card next season, following his spell in the Barcelona first team, taking the position from fellow Frenchman Samuel Umtiti. An 86 rated item is expected.
#85 - Mauro Icardi - 86 ST
With PSG making Mauro Icardi’s loan a permanent transfer following his 12 goals in Ligue 1 last season, we’d expect him to get a boost from his 85 rated card in FUT 20.
#84 - Milan Skriniar - 86 CB
Skriniar should be set to stay around his 86 rating from FIFA 20, with a few stats changes here and there to compensate for his average season in Serie A.
#83 - Saul - 86 CM
Saul will, without doubt, be receiving a higher rated item in FUT 21, after a season which solidified him as the midfield general in a difficult to break down Atletico team. Expect a very well rounded 86 rated item for the 25 year old Spaniard.
#82 - Kai Havertz - 86 CAM
One of the hottest properties in world football at the moment, Kai Havertz should see a big boost to an 86 in FUT 21, after his sterling Bundesliga season with Leverkusen.
A transfer to Chelsea appears to also be on the cards, which would further solidify an 86 rating.
#81 - Matthijs De Ligt - 86 CB
The 20-year-old not only earned a spot in the FIFA 20 Team of the Year but has been a mainstay in the Juventus defence that looks to be winning Serie A with ease. A boost to an 86 rated card seems fair!
