GOAT: Messi's FIFA 21 TOTS card is incredible

The Argentine was the highest-rated player in FIFA 21, but will he claim the top spot in this year's game?

Cristiano Ronaldo will be challenging him for the status, as always, but there could also be a chance for Robert Lewandowski to throw his hat in the ring, after scoring 41 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

TOP OF THE CLASS - CR7 will remain Serie A's number one

We believe that Ronaldo will once again be rated 92 OVR.

It's a no-brainer, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the best Serie A player in FIFA 22 should he remain at Juventus Piemonte Calcio.

The Portuguese legend was the league's top goalscorer despite his side not dominating as they have been used to in recent years.

What will Lukaku be rated on FIFA 22?

Romelu Lukaku made no secret of his disappointment after the FIFA 21 ratings were revealed, but he should be happier this time around.

POWERHOUSE - Lukaku is a defender's nightmare

The giant Belgian striker scored 24 goals as Inter won the title, so we expect a big boost for his attributes.

Lukaku will most likely get a plus 2 to 87 OVR or even 88, given how influential he was for the Italian Champions last season.
