Latest - FIFA 23 Top 10 REVEALED

The FIFA 23 leaks are coming thick and fast, and it looks like the highest-rated players in the game have now had their ratings revealed.


According to reports, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, Lionel Messi, Kevin De Bruyne and Robert Lewandowski will ALL be the joint highest-rated players in FIFA 23 with 91 OVR cards.


Cristiano Ronaldo falls behind yet again with a 90 OVR this time around, whilst Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Manuel Neuer and Thibaut Courtois all join the Portuguese legend.

Take a look at more of the game's highest-rated players and their ratings here.

Career Mode Wonderkids

We don't see many large increases for overall or potential ratings, with the current crop of wonderkids putting in consistent performances as opposed to proper stand-out ones.

The one exception to that would be German playmaker Florian Wirtz.

WONDERFUL WIRTZ - The youngster is already getting top numbers in the Bundesliga

He has been tearing it up this season, with eight goals and 12 assists in the Bundesliga and Europa League.

This has seen his rating increase this year from 78 OVR to 82 OVR.

If he keeps up these goal involvement levels then we expect to see him given another rating increase and also see his potential up there with the best of the wonderkids at 91 OVR.

HEY JUDE - Can Bellingham keep going and force an even higher rating from EA?

Jude Bellingham is another player from the Bundesliga who is getting great numbers, with four goals and 10 assists so far.

Again, if he keeps up that form he could see an upgrade in overall and potential rating.

Predicted Top 10 Wonderkids:

  • Pedri (OVR 83 - POT 92)
  • Florian Wirtz (OVR 82 - POT 91)
  • Jude Bellingham (OVR 82 - POT 90)
  • Ansu Fati (OVR 79 - POT 90)
  • Eduardo Camavinga (OVR 78 - POT 89)

  • Youssoufa Moukoko (OVR 70 - POT 89)
  • Yeremy Pino (OVR 77 - POT 88)

  • Noah Mbamba (OVR 64 - POT 87)

Release Date

As confirmed during the reveal trailer, FIFA 23 will be fully released on Friday, 30 September.

Some will be able to access the game sooner than that via a possible Beta or Demo, then Early Access and the Web App.

Early access for pre-orders begins on Tuesday, 27 September for those who buy the Ultimate Edition of the game.

The 10-hour EA Play trial gives players a limited number of hours of gaming too and will begin at the same time as pre-order early access.

FIFA 23 Top 10

We fully expect to see Lionel Messi at the top of the ratings once again in FIFA 23, although his rating could slip down a little more.

CENTRAL STAR - Messi's position reveal could be as exciting as his ratings

That would likely see him go level with Robert Lewandowski as the best two in the game, although the likes of Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe will be doing their best to cement a spot at the top as well.
