20- David De Gea (87 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
David De Gea Manchester United  32 GK 87

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 was 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 considering how awful Manchester United’s backfour 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)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Trent Alexander Arnold  Liverpool  24 87 RB 

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 league, let alone the world.

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

FIFA 23 awarded Trent Alexander-Arnold a rating of 87. As for his attributes, he has 76 Pace, 80 Dribbling, 80 Defense, and 89 Passing. Keep an eye on him to get that extra playmaking prowess in your Ultimate Team!

18- Kalidou Koulibaly (87 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Kalidou Koulibaly  Chelsea  31 CB 87

Kalidou Koulibaly, a dominant center-back, dedicated eight years to Napoli, anchoring and guiding them to remarkable finishes. Now with Chelsea, he has played in five matches this season, scoring against Tottenham but receiving a red card against Leeds United.

In the previous season with Napoli, Koulibaly, known for his elite heading ability, scored three goals and provided three assists in 27 appearances as a center-back. He recorded 84 clearances and 29 interceptions in Serie A. FIFA 23 rates him 87, highlighting attributes such as 82 Pace, 88 Defense, and 85 Physical.

17- Andrew Robertson (87 Rating)

Andrew Robertson  Liverpool  29 LB 87

Andrew Robertson, a Scottish International and Liverpool fullback, shares FIFA’s highest Premier League player rating with teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold. Vital to Liverpool’s 2021-22 defense and playmaking, Robertson made 29 EPL appearances, securing 16 clean sheets and contributing 10 assists along with 3 goals. In FIFA 23, Robertson holds an 87 rating, showcasing attributes like 80 Pace, 81 Dribbling, 82 Defense, and 81 Passing.

16- Rodri (87 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Rodri  Manchester City  26 CDM 87

Rodri, the Spanish Central Defensive Midfielder for Manchester City, stands out as one of the Premier League’s top-rated players. Known for his composure on the pitch, Rodri played a pivotal role in Manchester City’s title-winning 2021-22 season, making 33 appearances and scoring 7 goals, including a crucial one on the final day that secured the Premier League title.

In FIFA 23, Rodri boasts an 87 Rating, showcasing impressive attributes such as 79 Dribbling, 83 Defense, and 84 Physicality.

15- Fabinho (87 Rating)

Fabinho  Liverpool 29 CDM 87

Another CDM managed to get an 87 Rating apart from Rodri. Fabinho, 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, scoring 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)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Bernardo Silva  Manchester City  28 CAM/CM/RM 88

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 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)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Ruben Dias  Manchester City  25 CB 88

Since joining Manchester City in 2020, Ruben Dias emerged as a commanding leader on the pitch, elevating the team’s defense. In the previous season, he made 29 appearances, scoring 2 goals and setting up 4 for teammates.

With 65 clearances and 108 recoveries, he boasted a 73% tackle success rate. These stellar defensive stats contributed to his impressive 88 rating in FIFA 23, highlighting his exceptional attributes of 88 in both defense and physicality, establishing him as one of the game’s strongest players.

12- Joao Cancelo (88 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Joao Cancelo  Manchester City  28 RB/LB 88

Joao Cancelo, ranking 12th among Premier League players, is renowned for his exceptional ball skills and striking goals. Last season, he made 36 appearances for Manchester City, scoring once and providing 7 assists. In the current season, he added another Premier League goal. Cancelo achieved 19 clean sheets, executed 83 tackles with a 65% success rate, and made 217 recoveries in the 2021-22 Season.

FIFA 23 awarded him an 88 Rating, emphasizing attributes like 85 Pace, 85 Dribbling, 81 Defense, and 85 Passing. Despite his impressive performance, I believe FIFA 23 underrated Joao Cancelo’s shooting stats (73).

11- Erling Haaland (88 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Erling Haaland  Manchester City  22 ST 88

Erling Haaland, the current football powerhouse, transferred to Manchester City in a hot summer move, making a formidable entrance into the Premier League. In just 7 appearances this 2022-23 season, the Norwegian striker has already netted 11 goals.

Reviewing his previous season with Borussia Dortmund, Haaland showcased his prowess by scoring 22 goals in 24 Bundesliga appearances. FIFA 23 recognizes his outstanding performance, granting him an impressive 88 rating. Noteworthy attributes in the game include 89 Pace, 80 Dribbling, 91 Shooting, and 87 Physicality for the 22-year-old striker.

10- N’Golo Kante (89 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
N’Golo Kante  Chelsea  32 CDM/CM 89

The second and final player to make it onto my list from Chelsea is none other than N’Golo Kante. The French CDM is a pure workhorse, and you will hardly see him taking a breather during a game. Kante is well known since the 2015/16 season for his sheer presence all over the pitch.

Kante made 26 appearances for Chelsea during the Premier League 2021-22 Season. During the last season, he scored 2 Goals and provided 4 Assists. The French International also made 59 Tackles, 153 Recoveries, and 31 Interceptions. He was the perfect pivotal midfielder for Thomas Tuchel last season.

His determination led him to another inclusion among the Premier League’s top players in FIFA 23. The game granted him an 89 Rating, and here are some of his attributes: 81 Dribbling, 87 Defense, and 82 Physicality.

9- Ederson (89 Rating)

Name Team Age Position OVR
Ederson Manchester City  29 GK 89

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. Ederson made 60 Saves and kept 20 Clean Sheets earning him the Golden Glove Award for the 2021-22 Season.

FIFA 23 granted Ederson an 89 Rating. Here is a quick look at some of his attributes; 87 Diving, 88 Reflexes, 93 Kicking, and 88 Positioning. 

8- Harry Kane (89 Rating)

Harry Kane  Tottenham Hotspurs 29 ST 89

After the transfer fiasco in the 2021 Summer Transfer Window, Harry Kane stayed at Tottenham. He started the Premier League season poorly and went through one of the worst goal droughts in his career. However, after Tottenham appointed Antonio Conte as their new manager, Harry Kane regained 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. His involvement in the Attack took Tottenham to the next level, and he is one of the main reasons Son won the Golden Boot. 

In FIFA 23, Harry Kane earned an 89 Rating. On top of that, some of his top attributes include 82 Dribbling, 91 Shooting, 83 Passing, and 82 Physicality. 

7- Alisson (89 Rating)

Alisson Becker  Liverpool  30 GK 89

Following in the footsteps of Ederson, Alisson also makes it into the list of top 10 Best Premier League players. Alisson and Ederson may be united under the Brazilian flag, but they are fierce rivals in the Premier League. The Brazilian national again showed resistance between the goalposts last season with Liverpool.

Alisson made 36 Appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League last season. During his presence, Liverpool managed to keep 20 Clean Sheets, and hence, Alisson shared the Golden Glove Award with Ederson in the last season. The tall Brazilian made 76 Saves, which is 16 more than Ederson.

FIFA 23 watched his performances closely and rated him at 89, just like his fellow countryman Goalkeeper. Here are some of the best attributes of Alisson in FIFA 23: 86 Diving, 89 Reflexes, 85 Handling, 85 Kicking, and 90 Positioning.

Having secured his fifth Champions League victory with Real Madrid, he made a surprising move in the 2022 Summer transfer window.
