N’Golo Kanté: A player that is as electric as it gets. His ability to cover the ground, moving constantly day-in and day-out has earned numerous applauses from colleagues and opponents alike. A lower center of gravity often gives him the upper hand during battles in the center of the pitch. Overall FIFA 21 rating: 88
Fabinho: Apart from his ability to look up the field and pass a ball through, he is known for his defensive involvement. Fabinho’s key strengths include tackling, winning aerial duels, playing key passes, and his strong concentration on and off the ball. This is why he has been so vital to Liverpool this season. Overall FIFA 21 rating: 87
Goal 50 Revealed: The best 50 players in the world
Joshua Kimmich: Kimmich is robust, technically astute, determined, smart and hard working, with no obvious flaws in any part of his game. Able to control the tempo of matches, dig his heels in and defend when required, but also provide the eye-of-the-needle pass forward that starts (or finishes) an attack. Overall FIFA 21 rating: 88
Jordan Henderson: His influence and ability to lead others has just grown and grown over the past couple of seasons, and so has his quality on the ball. Henderson’s reliability is one of the things that makes him stand out – he is an extremely consistent performer. His athleticism is a big reason for that. It allows him to maintain his levels for the full 90 minutes. Overall FIFA 21 rating: 86
Carlos Henrique Casimiro: The Brazilian’s positioning and distribution continues to improve at a faster speed. His approach to the game is characterized by these three words – structural, organizational and technical. Overall FIFA 21 rating: 89
