It comes as no surprise that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo come out on top, but would you expect some of the bigger names to be so low? With Chelsea’s success last season it comes as no surprise that one of their players are in the top ten, But Manchester United player over Manchester City ones? I’m sure that will be one that is up for debate.

Also, will we get a top list of the female players? with the women now added this year, if EA Sport continue to improve on this option there will obviously need for balance in the way both sexes are represented.
