The news itself hyped up the football fans to see one of the best players in the world return to the Premier League, which also meant that they’d be able to play with him in FIFA 23.

However, the season didn’t go as planned for the red devils as they finished 6th on the table after an underwhelming season.

In fact, things were made worse when their neighbors, Manchester City, went on to win yet another Premier League title. Pep Guardiola’s men were almost perfect throughout the season, and they became a force to reckon with. Therefore, you can assume that some of the Manchester City players must have high ratings in FIFA 23.

On the other hand, Liverpool was right at the tail of Manchester City throughout the season. They only finished a point below Manchester City, who won the title on the final day of the season. 

Here’s what the Top 5 looked like in the Premier League 2021-22 Season:

As for the Goalkeepers, Alisson and Ederson both kept 20 Clean Sheets, which was the highest by any Premier League keeper last season. Finally, the majestic Kevin De Bruyne bagged the Premier League Player of the Season award due to his insane performances throughout the season.

(Note: The stats mentioned under each player’s name are only relevant to their Premier League performances.)

20- David De Gea (87 Rating)

Despite a poor season by Manchester United, there were two standout players who managed to get their team to a European spot. David De Gea was one of them, and he was absolutely crucial for United. If it was not for him, they would’ve ended much lower on the table.

The Spaniard made 38 appearances in the English Premier League. Even though he managed to keep 8 Clean Sheets, only his saving prowess stood out as he made 128 Saves. These numbers may not sound like much, but when you consider how awful Manchester United’s back four was last season, you can appreciate how much De Gea has accomplished.

Apart from his 87 Overall Rating, FIFA 23 has assigned him the following ratings in some attributes; 88 Diving, 89 Reflexes, 80 Handling, and 84 Positioning.

19- Trent Alexander-Arnold (87 Rating)

Despite being a bit shaky at defense, Trent Alexander-Arnold is one of the best playmakers Liverpool has. The English right-back‘s pace and ability to cross the ball into the box is one of the best in the whole league, let alone the world.

The young defender made 32 Appearances in the Premier League last season. He only lost 2 games in the entirety of the season and kept 17 Clean Sheets. Despite being a defender, Trent managed to provide 12 Assists (second highest in the premier league last season) and also scored 2 beautiful goals.

18- Kalidou Koulibaly (87 Rating)

Kalidou Koulibaly has by far been one of the strongest Centre Backs in the world for a couple of years. The Senegalese served the Italian club Napoli for 8 long years. He was their anchor and led the whole team to some outstanding finishes in the past season. He has now signed for Chelsea to make his mark on the Premier League. 

Koulidou Koulibaly has only made 5 Appearances with Chelsea in the current season so far. During which he scored a fantastic goal against Tottenham but also received a red card against Leeds United.

In the last season, Koulibaly made 27 Appearances for Napoli. Despite being a CB, his elite heading ability led him to score 3 goals; on top of that, he also provided 3 assists. The huge defender made 84 Clearances and 29 Interceptions in Serie A last season. 

FIFA 23 gave him a rating of 87, with the following attributes; 82 Pace, 88 Defense, and 85 Physical.

17- Andrew Robertson (87 Rating)

After Trent Alexander-Arnold, we have another fullback from Liverpool as one of the highest-rated Premier League players in FIFA. The Scottish International, Andrew Robertson, joins his teammate in our list with the exact same rating. Andrew Robertson was an integral part of Liverpool’s defense as well as their playmaking department during their 2021-22 Premier League run.

Robertson made 29 Appearances with Liverpool in the English Premier League last season. He kept 16 Clean Sheets, and his defensive shifts did not go unnoticed. However, that’s not all; the Scottish Defender also provided 10 Assists and scored 3 Goals for his team.

16- Rodri (87 Rating)

The first Manchester City player that makes his way into our list of the Top rated Premier League players is Rodri. The Spanish Central Defensive Midfielder is one of the most cool-minded players on the pitch. His vision and positioning are impeccable, and he manages to get his team out of high presses with ease. Rodri’s contribution was a key part of Manchester City’s title-winning run in the Premier League 2021-22 season.

The Spaniard made a total of 33 Appearances in the Premier League last season. Despite fulfilling the role of a box-to-box midfielder, Rodri scored 7 Goals for his team. One of his goals came on the last day of the season, which ultimately helped City claim the Premier League title. 

FIFA 23 has given an 87 Rating to Rodri; here are some of his best attributes and stats in the game; 79 Dribbling, 83 Defense, and 84 Physicality.

15- Fabinho (87 Rating)

Another CDM managed to get an 87 Rating apart from Rodri. Fabinho, who is a Brazilian national, represented Liverpool in the last season and was a key part of their impressive campaign. Jurgen Klopp even played him as a CB for Liverpool in the 2021-22 Premier League season. Whenever Fabinho was on the top of his game, Liverpool played as if they had an extra player on the pitch. 

In the past season, he made 29 Appearances, during which he scored 5 Goals for Liverpool. Apart from that, his defensive stats were also quite decent. The Brazilian made 193 Recoveries and got stuck in with 46 Tackles.

On the back of his gritty performances, FIFA 23 granted Fabinho a rating of 87. Here are some of his attributes; 86 Defense, 78 Passing, and 83 Physicality.

14- Bernardo Silva (88 Rating)

Bernardo Silva is one of the most versatile players in the game. He can fill the roles of a CAM, CM, or a winger for your team. On top of that, his technical skills on the ball are by far the best in the Premier League. All of these things combined make him a high-rated player in FIFA 23. 

Bernardo Silva was at the heart of Man City’s title-winning campaign last season. He appeared 35 Times for The Citizens, during which he scored 8 Goals and provided 4 Assists. However, his goal-scoring contribution doesn’t do justice to the way he performed last season. 

The Portuguese technical dribbler got an 88 Rating; other than that, here are some of his top attributes; 92 Dribbling, 78 Shooting, 77 Pace, and 84 Passing.

13- Rúben Dias (88 Rating)

After joining Manchester City in 2020, Ruben Dias has been their leader all over the pitch. His commanding presence is second to none, and he has really taken the back 4 of Manchester City to a new height. Not only that, but the Portuguese CB also had one of the best defensive stats in the Premier League last season, hence the high rating in FIFA 23.

Ruben Dias made 29 Appearances for the Champions last season, and he managed to score 2 Goals for his team. On top of that, he also Set Up 4 Goals for his teammates. As for his defensive input, Ruben Dias made 65 Clearances and 108 Recoveries, with a 73% Tackle Success ratio.

12- Joao Cancelo (88 Rating) 

Continuing the Manchester City train, we have Joao Cancelo placing 12th on our list of Best Premier League Players. All the Premier League followers are well aware of how good Joao Cancelo is on the ball. His screamers are second to none, and they have been in good supply since last season. In our opinion, he is the Best Left back in FIFA 23. 

The Portuguese player made 36 Appearances for Manchester City last season. Joao Cancelo scored 1 Goal and provided 7 Assists. He also has 1 Premier League goal under his belt in the current season. Joao Cancelo registered 19 Clean Sheets and made 83 Tackles with a 65% Success ratio in the 2021-22 Season. He also made 217 Recoveries.

11- Erling Haaland (88 Rating)

The most lethal Striker in Football right now! Erling Haaland is unstoppable, and his hot summer transfer to Manchester City means he’s now in the Premier League to terrorize the Defenses. Erling Haaland has already wreaked havoc in the current (2022-23) Premier League season. The Norweigan Attacker has only appeared 7 times in the Premier League, during which he has scored 11 Goals. 

Let’s now focus on his previous season’s stats since that is what the FIFA 23 ratings are based on. As we all know, Haaland represented the German club Borussia Dortmund last season. In the Bundesliga, the 22-year-old scored 22 Goals in 24 Appearances. Since his uprising in European football, Haaland has been scoring like crazy and has huge potential to become one of the best goalscorers ever, let alone in FIFA 23.

9- Ederson (89 Rating)

After David De Gea, Ederson is the second Goalkeeper to make it onto the Top 20 Premier League players list. Manchester City didn’t just win the league because of their mids and attackers; Ederson did his job exceptionally between the goalposts to keep his team alive in plenty of games. 

Ederson made 37 Appearances for Manchester City, which means he only missed one game throughout the last Premier League season. During his presence, City only conceded 26 Goals in 37 Games.

However, after Tottenham appointed Antonio Conte as their new manager, Harry Kane began getting back into his grove.

The English International made 37 Appearances for the Spurs. Despite his slow start to the 2021-22 Premier League season, Harry Kane managed to score 17 Goals and provide 9 Assists.
