#4 Anthony Martial - Manchester United

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial
FIFA 16 rating – 77

When the young Frenchman first arrived in England on deadline day, nobody had a clue as to who this young lad who cost Manchester United so much was. But a debut goal against Liverpool and a few fantastic performances later was all it took to make him a household name.

Martial, who has five goals in ten appearances to his name, is blessed with amazing pace, a more than keen eye for goal as well as excellent composure. His rating, as a result, has jumped from 69 in the previous game, to a promising 77.

#5 Matteo Darmain - Manchester United

Manchester United right back Matteo Darmian
FIFA 16 rating – 81

The Italian was probably the least glamorous out of all Manchester United’s expensive acquisitions earlier this year, but is probably also one of the most consistent.

Darmain’s promising World Cup bow for Italy as well as his excellent displays for Torino last season attracted attention from all over the world, and he soon found himself playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world. A powerful right back, it’s only a matter of time for him to become one of the best in his position.

The 25-year-old’s ratings in FIFA have rightly jumped from 74 in FIFA 15 to 81 in FIFA 16.

#6 Francis Coquelin - Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin
FIFA 16 rating – 78

The Frenchman was signed by Arsenal from French outfit Stade Lavallois way back in 2008 but failed to live up to his enormous potential at first, which is why became a peripheral figure at the club.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was on the verge of offloading his fellow countryman before Aaron Ramsey picked up an injury, which forced the manager to recall the youngster from his loan spell at Charlton and press him into action. The result was incredible – Francis Coquelin performed magnificently, participating in several key victories and became indispensable to the club.

As a result of his dynamic performances, Coquelin’s stock on FIFA 16 has been bumped up to a respectable 78 as compared to last season’s rating of 72.

#7 Kevin De Bruyne - Manchester City

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne
FIFA 16 rating – 86

The Belgian was simply magnificent for Wolfsburg last season, with his goals helping them lift the DFB Pokal, the DFL Supercup as well as finishing as runners up to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

De Bruyne’s magnificent performances earned him a number of awards, including the Bundesliga Player of the Year, Bundesliga top assists, Footballer of the Year in Germany as well as the crowning jewel – a big ticket move to Manchester City.

The 24-year-old’s rating in FIFA also jumped up by a massive five points to 86 in FIFA 16 which may have seemed a bit rash, but by the looks of things, it’s totally justified.

The towering Brazilian was a real revelation for Wolfsburg last season and was undoubtedly one of the Bundesliga’s best defenders.

The 33-year-old boasts of an incredible psychic, which makes him a massive threat in the air as well as a proficient set piece taker. His performances were rightly rewarded in FIFA 16 with an 85 rating, which is five points up from the previous instalment.

#10 Giorgio Chiellini - Juventus

31 is the age where players, no less defenders, start to wane, but the Italian is showing no signs of it and is still considered as one of the best centre backs in Europe.

Chiellini’s excellent displays at the heart of defence for Juventus acted as the Catalyst in the ‘Old Lady’ retaining the Serie A title last season as well as a key component in their excellent Champions League run, which caused them to reach the final that they eventually lost to Barcelona.

The Italian’s brilliant performances earned him a place on the UEFA Champions League Team of the Season as well as a place on the ESM Team of the Year.

His rating in FIFA 16 is 87, which is three points more than the previous edition of the game.
