Let’s take a look at the potential Top 10 Manchester Players in the upcoming FIFA 17 installment with their predicted ratings.


Memphis Depay – 80

The former PSV man is not having the season he was expecting. However, he has managed to get five goals in all competition in less than 30 appearances.

Depay is still young and has a lot to offer should he get more playing time.

We expect a FIFA rating downgrade for the Dutchman to 80 from 81.


Anthony Martial – 80

Martial is Manchester United’s highest goalscorer with eight goals in the Premier League, three in Europe and two in domestic cups. He has been featured in the FUT TOTW for a record of four times; more than any United player ever.

Martial has shown real character and potential growth this season, so he will most probably get an 80 rating.


Marcos Rojo – 80

The Argentine is one of the important defenders behind Manchester United’s good number of clean sheets this season. He has however missed a ton of matches with only twelve appearances.

Rojo’s FIFA ratings will downgraded from 81 to 80 considering his missed games.


Daley Blind – 81

Blind has been Louis Van Gaal’s favorite player in the season so far with 30 Premier League starts from total 33. He has managed to keep his managers’ trust with 13 clean sheets.

The Dutch player has played in all defensive roles and has proven his versatility this season.

His FIFA 17 rating is most likely to be 81.


Ander Herrera – 82

The Spaniard has not featured in most of the matches this season but he has performed very well on those he has.

With three goals and two assists in the Premier League and two important goals in Europe, Herrera has salvaged anything he could from the season.

His rating in FIFA 17 is expected to be 82.


Chris Smalling – 83

Smalling is Manchester United’s top defender this season. He has shown aggression as well as intelligence in his games this term. The English defender has kept over 15 clean sheets and even made it into the TOTW.

FIFA 16 winter upgrades increased his initial rating of 79 to 82.

Smalling is expected to have an even more increased rating of 83 in FIFA 17


Juan Mata – 84

Mata has played almost every game for Manchester United this season, but his stats are nowhere near as expected. He hasn’t managed to score and assist as freely as he used to.

He has scored over 8 goals and assisted over 6 times this season, but the Spaniard is having a bad season if we base it on his lofty standards.

His FIFA 17 rating will not be changed from FIFA 16 which is 84.


Bastian Schweinsteiger – 85

The German World Cup winner has barely made any prominent impact on the team after his arrival this season. He has managed to play some long passes and assisted as a defensive midfielder, but his move to Old Trafford is considered as a failure.

With Schweinsteiger ageing, we can expect his ratings to drop in FIFA 17.


Wayne Rooney – 86

The Manchester United captain is performing way below his standards this season. Be it with his goal drought or absence due to injury, Wayne Rooney definitely had a bad season. However, he has managed to reach a double-figure goal tally in all competitions.

He has managed to be in one TOTW, but we don’t expect his rating to improve in FIFA 17.


David De Gea – 88

If it wasn’t for David De Gea, Manchester United would probably have one of Premier League’s worst defensive records and would not be fighting for a Champions League spot this season.

The flying Spaniard has made some impossible saves for his club throughout the season.

He will have an upgraded rating in FIFA 17, most probably 88.
