Let’s take a look at the top 10 Arsenal players likely to have the highest ratings in FIFA 17.
Theo Walcott – 81
The English man has scored four Premier League goals this season so far and two in the Champions League. He has been somewhat favored by Arsene Wenger for the striker position replacing Giroud in many games.
He has also scored three times for his country in just four appearances.
We believe that he will have an 81 rating in FIFA 17.
Danny Welbeck – 81
Welbeck has scored three times in just five Premier League appearances making him the most efficient goal to game rate in Arsenal squad. He has also contributed his country, England to qualify for the Euros by scoring six goals in five qualifier games.
Welbeck rating in FIFA 17 should be 81. He has more to offer but he keeps on getting injured.
Olivier Giroud – 82
The French striker has already scored 12 in Premier League, 3 in the FA Cup, five in the Champions League and twice for his country. He has proven himself as the number one striker in Arsenal’s squad.
We expect his rating in FIFA 17 to be at least 82, but we would not be surprised if he gets an 83.
Per Mertesacker – 82
With 21 appearances for Arsenal this season, Mertesacker has just managed to get seven clean sheets. The World Cup winner was sent off against Chelsea, which raised a lot of criticism about his defensive abilities.
We believe that his rating in FIFA 17 will be 82, one less than that of FIFA 16.
Laurent Koscielny – 83
Koscielny has proved himself as one of the most efficient defenders for Arsenal this season. He has managed to keep 10 clean sheets and has scored three times so far this season.
The French defender should at least have an 83 rated card in the next FIFA game.
Aaron Ramsey – 84
With three goals and same number of assists in the Premier League so far, Arron Ramsey has had a decent season despite being injured a number of times. He has helped his side with a fine overall flow of the game.
The Welsh should have an 84 rated card making his rating go up +2 from FIFA 16.
Santi Cazorla – 84
The Spaniard has not started most games this season, but still has managed to score three and assist three. He has been injured since last December, but was efficient for the club until then.
We think that since he has not made much appearances this season EA will downgrade his 85 FIFA 16 rating to 84 in FIFA 17.
Petr Cech – 86
Cech has recovered his Premier League career this season after making 12 clean sheets in the league so far. He was so good that EA upgraded his 85 rating to 86 in the winter upgrades.
We think that FIFA will stick with the 86 rating for FIFA 17.
Alexis Sanchez – 87
The Chilean was Arsenal’s best player before he was injured and forced to step down. With 22 starts for Arsenal, he has managed to get four assists and seven goals. He is one of the players responsible for Arsenal competing for the Premier League trophy this season.
We think that the two time TOTW player from Arsenal will have an 87 rating in FIFA 17.
Mesut Ozil – 88
The World Cup winner has a stunning 18 assists and five goals for the Gunners this season so far. He is Arsenal’s most efficient player in all competitions after setting up most of Arsenal’s goals.
The German has made it into four TOTW (team of the week) sides and is a top contender to make it into TOTY (team of the year).
We think that Ozil will still have his 88 rating from FIFA 16, but it would not be a surprise if he gets an upgrade.
Do you agree with our predicted ratings for FIFA 17? Comment.
