1. Kevin De Bruyne (92 OVR)

As far as we're concerned there is only one man in the running for the number one spot in the Premier League, and that man is Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgian was instrumental in Manchester City's Premier League victory in the previous campaign, whilst he was also amongst Europe's finest en route to a maiden Champions League final.

2. Harry Kane (90 OVR)

+ 10

Where Harry Kane will be plying his trade next season remains to be seen, but we're pretty certain it will be in the Premier League.

With 33 goals in all competitions last season, the English forward is a shoo-in for a ratings upgrade, and we expect to see him in the 90's by the time FIFA 22 comes around.

3. Mohammed Salah (90 OVR)

Liverpool will be hoping for a more successful season than last, with Mohammed Salah set to star for the Premier League hopefuls yet again.

Despite picking up no silverware in 2021, Salah was amongst the top scorers in the Premier League and as a result, should remain amongst the top-rated PL stars.

4. Virgil Van Dijk (90 OVR)

Virgil Van Dijk's 2020/21 sason was ended early due to injury, but he has come back firing in the early stages of the 2022 season.

Liverpool are yet to concede a competitve goal since the Dutchman's return to the fold, and we imagine he will remain the top-rated PL centre back in FIFA 22.

5. Bruno Fernandes (89 OVR)

Bruno Fernandes has made light work of his move to the Premier League, quickly establishing himself as the star man in Ole's Manchester United side.

The Portuguese midfielder is due a substantial upgrade in FIFA 22, though we don't have him making the 90's just yet.

6. N'Golo Kante (89 OVR)

+ 10

The most likeable man in the Premier League will be highly sought after yet again after another stellar season at Stamford Bridge.

Kante was instrumental to Chelsea's UEFA Champions League success and after a bright start to the new season, we expect Chelsea and Kante to see some ratings upgrades in FIFA 22.

7. Ederson (89 OVR)

+ 10

The race to be declared the best goalkeeper in the Premier League is well and truly on, with Manchester City's Ederson amongst those vying for that title.

The Brazilian stopper picked up yet another Golden Glove award last season, and should continue to see his FIFA rating rise as a result.

8. Alisson (89 OVR)

+ 10

It may be a little bit of a cop out on our end, but we expect to see Ederson's international collegue Alisson join him in the number one goalkeeper spot.

Liverpool's number one saw his form dip at stages last season and whilst we expect to see his 90 OVR from FIFA 21 fall a little, we still imagine he'll be amongst the Premier League's best.

9. Romelu Lukaku (88 OVR)

+ 10

Romelu Lukaku's Premier League return ranks highly amongst the most significant transfers this summer.

The Belgian rejoins the club where he started his Premier League career after a stellar spell down in the Serie A. He should see a ratings upgrade as a result.

10. Sadio Mane (88 OVR)

+ 10

Completing our list of the top Premier League players in FIFA 22 will be Liverpool's Sadio Mane.

The Senegalese forward had a disappoining return last season judging by his usually remarkable standards, which should see his 90 OVR from FIFA 21 dip slightly. He should still make the top 10 though.
