As part of the build-up to the game's release, the company behind the franchise publishes the top-100 players of the game every year, and this year is no different. However, the list does include quite a few surprises with a couple of shock inclusions along with a few questionable player ratings.
In this article, let us look closer at the five truly gifted players who could not make the cut and missed out on the top-20 list.
#5 Hugo Lloris | GK | Tottenham Hotspur | France
In FIFA 19, the French international boasts the same overall as the previous iteration, which was a surprise for a few as Lloris put in some top-draw performances for Tottenham Hotspur last season that saw him keep 15 clean sheets in the process, trailing Manchester United's David de Gea and City's Ederson.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper received a boost for his reflexes and positioning but was his rating for handling was penalised by a point. With no change in the overall, Lloris dropped on the list, moving to the 29th position from the 28th place that he held last year.
Overall - 88
Diving - 88
Handling - 84
Kicking - 68
Reflexes - 92
