FIFA 18 ratings: 5 players who have been grossly overrated
The latest ratings released by EA Sports for FIFA 18 told an all too familiar tale. The ratings had a tinge of repetition from previous years and in many ways felt almost anti-climactic. In some cases, the ratings offered were too low for talented players that deserved so much better, and in others, they were unreasonably high, perhaps due to a hint of "star power" rather than actual performance on the pitch. Whatever the reason, the FIFA 18 ratings for players were far from perfect.
Following our review of five grossly underrated players, the obvious next step is to find five players who would best fit those who got way more than they expected. These players are no doubt among the very best in the world and they may just prove us wrong, but going by recent performances, their rating seemed rather generous.
Here are five players who have been grossly overrated in FIFA 18:

#5 Sami Khedira - 84
Football pundits rightfully say that there is a dearth of good defensive midfielders in world football today. That is perhaps the reason that Sami Khedira finds himself at a decent club despite his injuries and lack of consistent performances. Having dropped from an even higher position while at Real Madrid, the German player is rated 84 this year but by his performances in the last couple of years, he should have been even lower.
Stats such as 84 physicality and 80 passing flatter the once rock in the German midfield and it is fair to say that Khedira should consider himself incredibly lucky to be in such an enviable spot.
