*UPDATED* FIFA 21 Official Ratings: Chelsea – Silva, Ziyech, Werner, Havertz, Kante & more
What will the Blues look like as their youngsters develop alongside some world class signings?
The new season is just around the corner and Chelsea have a new-look side ready to take to the field!
Frank Lampard has been splashing the cash in the transfer market, bringing in a number of new signings in order to challenge at the top end of the table in the 2020/21 campaign.
EA have finally dropped the official FIFA 21 ratings, so here are the boys in in blue!
N’Golo Kante (OVR 88)
Injury has limited N’Golo Kante’s game time this season.
In the games Kante has played, the Frenchman has bagged three goals and enjoyed a more advanced role than his usual place in defensive midfield.
Thiago Silva (OVR 85)
The latest of the Frank Lampard summer splurge is a man who knows all about winning, Brazilian veteran Thiago Silva!
The 35-year-old was a free agent after his contract with PSG expired and given Chelsea’s defensive frailties last season, it was a no brainer!
Timo Werner (OVR 85)
The second man to sign for Chelsea this summer, the Blues may just have a shot of the title if Timo Werner brings his shooting boots.
The £52 million signing from RB Leipzig has scored 26 Bundesliga goals this season, and chipped in with eight assists.
Hakim Ziyech (OVR 85)
An exciting new addition at Stamford Bridge.
Moroccan star Hakim Ziyech will arrive at Chelsea this summer after another excellent season for Ajax, winning their player of the season for the third year in a row.
Kai Havertz (OVR 85)
The signing of the summer so far!
The German playmaker arrives in London with a huge reputation, having scored 12 goals and produced 6 assists in the 2019/20 campaign, at just 21 years old.
Cesar Azpilicueta (OVR 84)
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta is as reliable as ever in defence.
Able to play on either flank and at centre back, Azpilicueta is a valuable part of Lampard’s squad and his experience will benefit young stars Reece James and Fikayo Tomori.
Mason Mount (OVR 80)
One of many exciting young English talents.

Mason Mount has scored six goals in his first full season in the Premier league, as well as providing five assists for his teammates.
Mateo Kovacic (OVR 83 – Predicted)
Chelsea’s best midfielder this season.
Croatian maestro Mateo Kovacic has been the standout player for Chelsea this season for his work at both ends of the pitch.
Jorginho (OVR 83 – Predicted)
A solid if unspectacular season for Jorginho so far.
Eclipsed by the superb Kovacic, Jorginho has gone about his business with four goals and two assists helping Chelsea to fourth in the Premier League.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (OVR 83 – Predicted)
Kepa Arrizabalaga has endured an indifferent season.

The Spaniard was dropped throughout February after a run of poor form, however returned and kept a clean sheet in the last game before the lockdown.
Antonio Rudiger (OVR 82 – Predicted)
It is difficult to see how Antonio Rudiger’s rating will change on FIFA 21.
The German international missed a large portion of the season with a groin injury, managing just 13 league games to date.
Ben Chilwell (OVR 81 – Predicted)
Another key addition to the Chelsea back line is former Leicester City man Ben Chilwell.
An eyebrow raising £50 million was paid for the Englishman who looks set to step into the starting XI in place of Spaniard Marcos Alonso.
Tammy Abraham (OVR 81 – Predicted)
Tammy Abraham began the season on fire.
The 22-year-old bagged seven goals in five games at the start of the season and although his form has dipped slightly, he has still enjoyed a fruitful season under Lampard.
