New seasons of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is coming. There are something different in top 10 players ranking, someone players up and others down. Following is a list of the top 10 best footballers we have compiled when new Ultimate Team mode comes.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid/Portugal)
Pos: LW; Overall Rating: 92; Average Price: 3,000,000-4,500,000C
Once again, Cristiano Ronaldo pips his great rival to the top spot when it comes to the best player in FIFA. Despite having a slight disadvantage when it comes to the overall rating when matched up against Messi, the Portuguese maestro possesses something that makes him the top choice among Ultimate Team aficionados – physicality. With greater height, jumping and strength than Messi, he is a better option for more varied attacking options and also defending against set-pieces. And it goes without saying that his attacking qualities – shooting, dribbling, pace, passing etc. – are all among the best in the game. The best in the world for the 2013-2014 season is also the best FIFA Ultimate Team player.
2. Lionel Messi (Barcelona/Argentina)
Pos: CF; Overall Rating: 93; Average Price: 2,500,000-3,500,000C
Regardless of being the leading candidate when it comes to being the best footballer of his generation, Lionel Messi only finds himself at #2 in this particular list. His diminutive size hampers his effectiveness aerially both in attack and defence – but that is pretty much the only negative you can hold against him. It goes without saying that he is the best combination of finishing, dribbling, acceleration, vision, control, and passing the game has to offer. You’d either have to get very lucky with purchasing a player pack or spend a small fortune to obtain the magician that is Messi, but he is certainly worth it for the ardent Ultimate Team gamer.
3. Arjen Robben (FC Bayern/Germany)
Pos: RM; Overall Rating: 90; Average Price: 480,000-700,000C
The best combination of pace and dribbling ability for the right side of midfield, Arjen Robben is a popular choice among many Ultimate Team players because of this. But the World Cup hero is not just about silky dribbling skills and almost unparalleled speed; Robben is also a clinical finisher both in and outside the area. All of this combined with his excellent creativity and passing skills make Robben one of the very best players in FIFA 15. In fact, he is only topped by two of the greatest footballers to ever play the game in our opinion!
4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (PSG/Sweden)
Pos: ST; Overall Rating: 90; Average Price: 650,000-850,000C
A popular figure among the footballing fraternity thanks to both his ability and unwavering confidence, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is only behind Messi and Ronaldo as being the highest overall rated player in FIFA 15. Whilst not the fastest of players, the Swedish star, at 6’4” and with lofty strength stats, is an imposing figure for all defences to face. Not only is he a great finisher both aerially and on the ground, he is ideal to play off and be a great hold-up striker for any side.
5. Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid/Spain)
Pos: CB; Overall Rating: 87; Average Price: 130,000-200,000C
There aren’t many central defenders that have great pace to go with world class defensive ability. Sergio Ramos, however, is one such exception – to the point where is arguably the best centre back in FIFA 15 for Ultimate Team. Along with a level of pace that keeps in the chase with even the fastest of players, the Real Madrid legend is a dependable force at the back. Ramos’ great heading ability, strength and size also ensures he is a danger for every set-piece.
6. Luis Suarez (Barcelona/Uruguay)
Pos: ST; Overall Rating: 89; Average Price: 550,000-670,000C
Controversy always follows Luis Suarez wherever he goes, but one thing is for certain: he is one of the best footballers in the world today. In terms of FIFA 15, he is one of the very best out-and-out strikers you can choose from. Whilst he isn’t the quickest of all the options, he still has enough pace to get in behind defences whilst his finishing stats are deadly. The infamous Uruguayan also has the creativity and vision that makes him an ideal option as a striker for others to play off, where he can assist his teammates and provide a plethora of opportunities.
7. Gareth Bale (Real Madrid/Wales)
Pos: RM; Overall Rating: 87; Average Price: 550,000-750,000C
If you want acceleration, then look no further than Gareth Bale. Generally recognized as one of the fastest players in the world along with the footballing ability to go with it, the Welsh wizard is one of the most popular options for FIFA 15 players. He has great versatility, where his past roots in defence help when tracking back if needed, whilst he has the creativity and finishing to be a potent option up top. Sadly, with his fellow countrymen not at the same lofty plateau he resides on, building an all-Welsh side for international games is not the wisest of choices. Other than that, Bale is a fantastic option for your team – as long as you have the financial resources, of course.
8. Yaya Toure (Man City/Ivory Coast)
Pos: CM; Overall Rating: 86; Average Price: 200,000-300,000C
Whilst there are central midfielders in FIFA 15 that, individually, offer either better dribbling, shooting or passing ability, none match the all-round ability, coupled with almost unparalleled physical presence for the position, that Yaya Toure provides. Although he isn’t the fastest player, central midfield is perhaps the best position to get away with such a thing, and Toure more than makes up for it in other areas. Boundless stamina, along with great passing and shooting abilities, all combine with his physicality to make him an imposing figure in the middle of the park.
9. Manuel Neuer (FC Bayern/Germany)
Pos: GK; Overall Rating: 90; Average Price: 220,000-300,000C
As attacking players are the main focus of any Ultimate Team, defensive players – especially goalkeepers – can be overlooked. But having a dependable last line of defence between the sticks could be the difference between winning or losing, and goalies in FIFA 15 don’t come any better than Manuel Neuer. The imposing stopper, one of the most integral parts to Germany’s success at the 2014 World Cup, is one of the highest rated keepers in FIFA history – making sure he is one of the hottest properties in Ultimate Team and a must-buy for those with the coins to spare.
10. Jordi Alba (Barcelona/Spain)
Pos: LB; Overall Rating: 81; Average Price: 14,000-18,000C
Whether in attack or defence, the most important stat for an outfield player is pace. After all, you don’t want to be left wanting when competing against another team that is loaded with the fastest footballers in FIFA. When it comes to defe
nce, fast players for these positions come at a premium. Arguably the best speedster for the left back position is Jordi Alba. Along with some of the best pace stats in the game, the diminutive Spaniard is also a good all-rounder when it comes to defending and attacking. And in comparison to other players on this list, Alba is a steal at his current going rate.
