FIFA 18 have released the first batch of player ratings, which sees Monaco striker Radamel Falcao return to the top 100.
With September now in full flow, fans of the EA Sports game only have to wait until later this month to get their hands on the latest edition, which is due for release on September 29.
To whet the appetite, EA Sports have announced the first batch of top 100 players. FIFA 18 showcase the top players in the game, with ratings based on their performances in the last year of football.
Top 100-81 players
|100||Bernardo Silva||Man City||84|
|96||Marco Asensio||Real Madrid||84|
|89||Ilkay Gundogan||Man City||85|
|88||Danijel Subasic||AS Monaco||85|
|87||Raphael Varane||Real Madrid||85|
|86||Kamil Glik||AS Monaco||85|
|84||Vincent Kompany||Man City||85|
|83||Henrikh Mkhitaryan||Man Utd||85|
|82||Yannick Carrasco||Atletico Madrid||85|
|81||Marc-Andre ter Stegen||Barcelona||85|
Sadio Mane, who has started the season in impressive form for Liverpool, comes in as the 98th best player in the game, which is below Monaco striker Falcao (95th).
The Colombian's ranking on the game has fluctuated greatly in recent years. On FIFA 13, he was regarded as one of the top strikers in the world with a game rating of 94. However, fast forward four years and the striker was given a score of just 81 for last year's edition - but his stock is on the rise again after a scintillating campaign for Monaco to the extent that his FIFA 18 rating is now 84, meaning he has broken back into the top 100 players.
Dele Alli is ranked as the game's 93rd best player, below Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan (89th), who missed half of last season through injury, and Monaco centre-back Kamil Glik (86th).
Mane, Alli and Gundogan are three of six Premier League players that feature in the first batch of top 100 players.
Despite his advancing years Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany (84th) still can mix it with the world's best, team-mate Bernando Silva (100th) scrapes into the top 100 and Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan (83rd) also makes the cut.
