Predicting the best rated Premier League players in FIFA 22

It's the best league in the world, but does the Premier League have the best players?

Three of the finalists in Europe's competitions were from the English top-flight, and no fewer than six sides from the PL initially joining the breakaway European Super League.

We look at who's likely to be the best players from the Premier League on FIFA 22.

Kevin De Bruyne (OVR 91)

SIMPLY DE BEST - KDB is likely to hold to his best Premier League player tag in FIFA 22

It won't surprise you to see Kevin De Bruyne top of the Premier League predictions, with the Belgian in a world in his own at the top of the PL pecking order.

Aged 29, the Belgian is at the peak of his powers, and shone in City's glittering side across a range of positions last season.

N'Golo Kante (OVR 90)

ENGINE - N'Golo Kante has rcreated his own role in midfield

We're predicting a two-point boost for N'Golo Kante simply down to his Champions League performances.

The midfielder wins the ball back time and time again for Chelsea, with him securing three Man of the Match awards in a row as the Blues claimed the European Cup for the second time.

Virgil van Dijk (OVR 90)

OUT OF ACTION - Van Dijk's return will dictate his FIFA 22 rating

How Virgil van Dijk starts next season will very much dictate his rating, as we look to see if he shakes off the ACL injury he suffered last October.

Will his yard of pace disappear? That could be a crucial component of how Liverpool fair next term.

Mohamed Salah (OVR 90)

CLINICAL - Mo Salah actually scored more goal last season than in Liverpool's title winning campaign

It was a relatively quiet season for Mohamed Salah - despite scoring 22 goals.

If he's picking up those kind of numbers in a Liverpool side that's not firing on all cylinders, watch out for him when they get back up to full speed.

Harry Kane (OVR 90)

ALL ROUNDER - Harry Kane is one of the most complete forwards we've ever seen

Will all knew what a deadly finisher Harry Kane was, but this season he showcased that he can create too, picking up the most assists in the Premier League - as well as the Golden Boot.

The only thing preventing the England captain from going to the next level is silverware - which could change if he forces through a move this summer.

Heung-min Son (OVR 89)

OH, SONNY BOY - Heung-min Son's days at Spurs could be numbered

Harry Kane's partner in crime at Heung-min Son - the Korean never gives up and contributed to 17 goals and 10 assists in the league last season.

If Kane does leave, however, you can't imagine the left winger staying on - especially as he is the prime of his career aged 28.

Alisson (OVR 89)

LEAP OF FAITH - Alisson's header against Sheffield United ended up being crucial for Champions League qualification

A difficult season for Alisson as he lost the protection of Liverpool's main centre back pairing in Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

A crucial headed goal shows Alisson has another string to his bow, but there is an impression his reputation as the Premier League's best is under threat.

Bruno Fernandes (OVR 88)

SPOT-KICK KING - Bruno Fernandes needs to shake the penalty merchant tag if he is to rival the world's best

Man Utd fans will scream for their main man Bruno Fernandes to reach a 90 rating, but they must remember that half of his Premier League goals last season came from the penalty spot.

Perhaps to get to that top level, Bruno needs a higher calibre of players around him, with the Portuguese looking flat during the Europa League final against Villarreal.

Ederson (OVR 88)

GAME CHANGER - Ederson has redefined the goalkeeping role

Despite securing consecutive Premier League Golden Gloves, Ederson is still behind Alisson in the pecking order for Brazil's number 1 jersey.

The 27-year-old Ederson is perhaps the best goalkeeper in the world with his feet, and perhaps it's just a question of being tested more to get his rating any higher.

Fabinho (OVR 87)

ABSOLUTELY FAB-ULOUS - Fabinho maintained his own form despite a difficult campaign

A difficult season for Fabinho has he had his own injury problems, but perhaps the Brazilian showed his worth when he seamlessly slotted in at centre back.

With a full complement expected at Liverpool next season, Fabinho must now look to form a partnership with Thiago in midfield - which has plenty of potential but hasn't delivered the goods just yet.
