No Manchester United player in top 5 Premier League players' list on FIFA 18 Ultimate Team
FIFA Ultimate Team can throw up quite a few surprises. We got one such surprise, just after seven gameweeks of the Premier League.
While the two Manchester clubs have take the Premier League by storm in the nascent stages of the ongoing Premier League season, only one of their players seem to be getting the proper rating they deserve in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team.
Manchester United, who currently stand second only to bitter rivals Manchester City (that too by just a one-goal difference), do not have a single player in the top five rated Premier League players in FIFA 18 UT.
In fact, the highest rated Red Devil among all the Premier League players in FUT is striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with an overall of 88.
The list is currently headed by Sergio Aguero (90), Eden Hazard (90) and Kevin de Bruyne (89).
Although Manchester United have not found much representation in the top 10 of the list, their ‘noisy neighbours’ Manchester City have a number of players in the top section. Apart from the aforementioned three list toppers, Aguero makes another entry at number four, with an overall rating of 89, while David Silva comes in at number six with a rating of 88, with Mesut Ozil at number seven with the same rating.
Sadio Mane of Liverpool and Paul Pogba (both at 87) complete the top 10 list.
Ibrahimovic has surprisingly made it into the number eight spot despite the fact that he has not seen any on-pitch action of late, as he is currently recovering from a longstanding knee injury.
The Swedish striker has been rated 82 in the dribbling and the physicality sectors, while his passing has been rated at 81. However, he area where Zlatan has scored the most is shooting, which currently stands at 88.
Although his overall stats make for good reading, Zlatan seems to be lacking in one area – pace. The 35-year-old has been given a lowly 65. Pace is one of the most important factors for strikers in FIFA, and a low pace rating could act as a deterrent.
Surprisingly, however, the top three goalscorers in the ongoing season of the Premier League – Romelu Lukaku (7), Alvaro Morata (6) and Harry Kane (6) – have not found their names on this list.
