Real Madrid star Marcelo has leapfrogged David Alaba to become the highest-rated left-back in the world on FIFA 18.

Paul Pogba FIFA 18

Pogba seems to be settling into life back at Manchester United now but actually takes a one-point hit compared to his FIFA 17 rating. He still has five-star skill moves, however.

35. N'GOLO KANTE | Chelsea

N'Golo Kante FIFA 18

Return to top30. ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC | Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic FIFA 18

Ibrahimovic may have taken a two-point hit on his 90 overall rating on FIFA 17, but he remains one of the top strikers in the game.

27. DIEGO GODIN | Atletico Madrid

Diego Godin FIFA 18

He may now be into his 30s but age shows no signs of slowing down Atletico Madrid talisman Godin, and he remains one of the game's top defenders at 88 overall.

26. MATS HUMMELS | Bayern Munich

Mats Hummels FIFA 18

His team-mate Jerome Boateng may have taken a hit to his rating, but Bayern Munich fans have been compensated for that with a one-point upgrade for Hummels.


Thiago Silva FIFA 18

Soon to turn 33, Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil star Silva is down one point to 88 overall but still, nevertheless, a world-class central defender.

Arjen Robben FIFA 18

Bayern Munich winger Robben's attacking stats are still mouthwatering despite his advancing years and he gets a one-point upgrade to 88 overall.

22. THIAGO | Bayern Munich

Thiago FIFA 18

Thiago firmly established himself as a world-class midfielder last season and climbs from 85 overall to 88. Add that to his five-star skill moves and he will be in demand again on FIFA 18.

21. PAULO DYBALA | Juventus

Paulo Dybala FIFA 18

Dybala got a one-point upgrade during the FIFA 17 ratings refresh and jumps up two more points on FIFA 18. You would not bet against him continuing to rise in coming years.

Return to top20. ANTOINE GRIEZMANN | Atletico Madrid

FIFA 18 Griezmann

The Frenchman remains on the same rating as 2017 after another strong year at Atletico.


FIFA 18 Courtois

Courtois is one of three goalkeepers in the latest batch of ratings as the Chelsea man continues to enhance his reputation.

18. SERGIO AGUERO | Manchester City

FIFA 18 Aguero

Another man who retains the overall rating he sported in FIFA 17 as Kun stays on 89.

17. GARETH BALE | Real Madrid

FIFA 18 Bale

Bale has had his problems with injury in recent seasons, perhaps explaining why he drops one point to 89 for this latest edition.


FIFA 18 Chiellini

Always a rock for Juve, Chiellini's consistency is rewarded with a one-point boost in FIFA 18.

15.KEVIN DE BRUYNE | Manchester City

FIFA 18 De Bruyne

De Bruyne is another upward mover, improving on the 88 score given to him last time round.


FIFA 18 Alexis

Alexis might not be the happiest man at Arsenal right now, but at least he has a one-point boost on his FIFA score to celebrate this week.


FIFA 18 Buffon

The Italy and Juventus legend only seems to get better with age, and those in charge at EA Sports agree as they boost his score by a point.

12. LUKA MODRIC | Real Madrid

FIFA 18 Modric

No movement for Madrid's influential Croatian as he sits just outside the top 10.

11. DAVID DE GEA | Manchester United

FIFA 18 De Gea

De Gea was outstanding for United last season, and deservedly holds on to his 90 rating to cement his position as one of the world's - and FIFA's - elite keepers.

Return to top10. GONZALO HIGUAIN | Juventus

Gonzalo Higuain FIFA 18

Higuain scored another 32 goals in all competitions in his first season with Juventus and has been upgraded by a point, from 89 to 90 overall.

Toni Kroos FIFA 18

Kroos gets a two-point upgrade after proving instrumental once again in Real Madrid's latest Champions League triumph and remains one of the best passers in the game.

Eden Hazard FIFA 18

Hazard's one-point upgrade to 90 overall and entry into the top 10 sees him take the title of best player in the Premier League from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Sergio Ramos FIFA 18

Real Madrid icon Ramos is up a point to 90 overall and overtakes Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng to be named FIFA 18's best defender.


Robert Lewandowski FIFA 18

The goals continue to flow for Lewandowski. He netted 43 in 47 games last season and is boosted by one point, retaining his status as the second-best pure centre forward on FIFA.

5. MANUEL NEUER | Bayern Munich

Manuel Neuer FIFA 18

Neuer keeps his 92 rating and remains unmatched among goalkeepers, with David de Gea, his closest challenger, still two points behind him.

4. LUIS SUAREZ | Barcelona

Luis Suarez FIFA 18

Despite not being quite as prolific last season as he was in a sensational 2015-16, Suarez remains FIFA's top striker at 92 overall - though Neymar has jumped above him.


Neymar FIFA 18

Neymar keeps his 92 rating and with 92 pace and five-star weak foot and skill moves attributes to boot, he should be one of the most unplayable forwards in the game.

2. LIONEL MESSI | Barcelona

Lionel Messi FIFA 18

It's second place once again for Messi. He keeps his 93 overall rating to stay clear of Neymar and Suarez, but has not wrestled the top honour from this year's cover star.
