Liverpool player rankings revealed for FIFA 21: Ultimate Team

Simply put, Liverpool enjoyed one of the best campaigns in the history of English top-flight football last season, even taking into account a dip in form after sealing the club’s first league title for 30 years. (Coincidentally, of course).

Having conquered world club football at the end of the year, Liverpool ended the season with an impressive 99 Premier League points. While their status as European champions from 2019 ensured Jurgen Klopp’s main men were already at the top of the rankings, their achievements last season saw them feature no fewer than 11 players in the top 100. Let’s start the game together.

However, even Liverpool can’t have every squad member at the Centurions club, so here are the FIFA 21 rankings (via Liverpool Echo) for the highly-rated Reds and those not yet ranked. .

FIFA 20 Rating: 59

Larouci may still be a bronze card but his rating has increased by two since last season, perhaps one for every first team appearance he made in 2019/20.

Jones and his long-range shooting caught the eye during his early first-team chances last term and were rewarded with lower squad numbers (48 to 17) and a less substantial rating boost (61 to 65). .

Van den Bergh, on the other hand, carries the unwanted burden of having a shirt number (72) that is significantly higher than his rating (65).

The man, or boy, who holds countless age records is still only 17 and, in his first FIFA appearance, boasts the respectable status of a silver card.

FIFA 20 Rating: 68

Woodburn has been a part of Liverpool Football Club in one form or another for over a decade, yet last appeared for the senior team in May 2018.

A lengthy injury lay-off during his loan spell with Oxford United last season may have led to his demotion.

FIFA 20 Rating: N/A

Unusually, Liverpool’s primary creative outlets reside in the full-back slots (we’ll get to those later).

Filling either of these key players is a tough task but Jurgen Klopp seems to trust Williams as the primary cover for the right-back position.

FIFA 20 Rating: 61

Phillips has been given a notable rise up the rankings, having leapt seven points into the club’s top flight following a successful loan spell in the German second tier with VfB Stuttgart.

FIFA 20 Rating: 64

Having scored 11 goals in 22 games on loan at Swansea City last season not only increased Ryan Brewster’s rating by six points, but is also likely to attract a transfer bid from Sheffield United.

Marko Grujic may not be a Liverpool player for long / James Williamson – AMA/Getty Images

FIFA 20 Rating: 77

Grujic has spent most of his Liverpool career on loan and despite a thrilling end to the Bundesliga season with Hertha BSC last term, he is not expected to be on Merseyside for as long as he is believed to be. Have changed agents in an effort to move forward.

FIFA 20 Rating: 78

Despite recording his best goalscoring season in the Premier League since 2017, Origi has been relegated.

Although – somewhat oddly – every stat on the face of his card has either stayed the same or increased from last season.

FIFA 20 Rating: 75

Bournemouth’s stock may have taken a nasty dip following relegation but Wilson and his free-kick prowess have only been boosted by the 23-year-old’s first season of regular top-flight football.

FIFA 20 Rating: 75

Minamino’s impressive start to the new season gives hope that the Japan international can bounce back from a first six months at Liverpool that Klopp charitably described as ‘unfortunate’.

When injury-free, there are few things Oxlade-Chamberlain can’t do on the football pitch. However, questions about his fitness persist and may have contributed to his decline.

FIFA 20 Rating: 81

Klopp may have been described as ‘Mr Professional’ as he enters his 19th season of senior football, but he has shown few signs of slowing down and may be feeling the pinch. It’s been a tough job to bring down.

FIFA 20 Rating: 80

Liverpool’s new £45m man got off to the perfect start with an action-packed debut against Arsenal that ended with a first goal for the reigning Premier League champions.

Jota has excelled with Wolves but whether he can pose a serious threat to any of the club’s hypothetical front threes – who are rated at least seven higher – remains to be seen.

The man once known as the ‘Alpine Messi’ has struggled to get ahead of his established frontline, playing more than ten minutes in just two Premier League games last season.

FIFA 20 Rating: 82

For the second season in a row, Keïta’s base card has been downgraded. However, this season, this trend is definitely going to stop. Keita was one of Liverpool’s standout players after the lockdown and continued this campaign.

He may not reach the heights that earned him a Team of the Season rating of 93 during his RB Leipzig days, but he is on his way.

FIFA 20 Rating: 80

The man who has cemented his position in Matip’s centre-back role has also been the beneficiary of a statistical boost. Gomez has one of the most attractive center back cards in the game with 82 pace, 83 defense and 80 physicality.

FIFA 20 Rating: 84

While Georginio Wijnaldum’s future remains uncertain, the Reds would do well to retain a remarkable all-rounder – a status aptly reflected by the fact that a status 75 is on the face of his card. is not less than

FIFA 20 Rating: 87

Thiago showed little sign of a slump on an impressive Premier League debut – let alone a drop from 87 to 85 – but will be forced to recover from a positive COVID-19 test before returning.

FIFA 20 Rating: 83

Much has been made of Henderson’s shared ranking with Paul Pogba – a comparison inevitably fueled by the club loyalties of those involved. But Liverpool’s all-action leader – and FWA Player of the Year – wholeheartedly deserves his place among the game’s elite.

FIFA 20 Rating: 85

Perhaps unsurprisingly, with the Premier League’s best defense last season, Liverpool boasted three of the six highest-rated defenders in FIFA 21, with Robertson a key part of that set-up.

FIFA 20 Rating: 85

Only two Premier League midfielders could better Fabinho’s rating of 87, yet the versatile Brazilian has already hinted at a potential positional switch at centre-back after a dominant early season performance.

Roberto Firmino scored just one goal in 19 Premier League games at Anfield last season

FIFA 20 Rating: 86

Firmino’s home goal could hardly detract from another hugely influential season from the intelligent frontman with a touch of wings.

Reckon @trentaa98 is happy with his #FIFA21 rating? ?

FIFA 20 Rating: 83

Alexander-Arnold’s remarkable rise over the past two seasons is reflected in his standing as the highest-rated right-back in FIFA 21.

His 66 shooting may need another look in mind.

FIFA 20 Rating: 89

Alisson’s importance to Liverpool was reinforced by his absence when the club crashed out of the Champions League last season. Only their opponents that night – Atlético Madrid – could boast a top-class goalkeeper.

FIFA 20 Rating: 88

Mane scored at least 20 goals from the left wing for the third season on the bounce in 2019/20, and also had an impressive tally of nine assists in all competitions, an indication of the creativity of a player who is unlikely to can be more than Full

FIFA 20 Rating: 90

Mohamed Salah is, at times, threatened by routine brilliance but the Egyptian puts himself among the top ten players in the game with that ability, one of Liverpool’s three in that rarefied bracket.

FIFA 20 Rating: 90

Van Dijk’s status as the world’s best defender has rarely been in doubt over the past two seasons and this lofty position has been replicated by his FIFA rankings, which rank him as the seventh best player in the game. Sees too.
