The daily countdown of the top players in FIFA 18 has reached the top 40, with Premier League representations still strong.

Ahead of the game’s launch on September 29, EA Sports have revealed the ratings of players such as Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Petr Cech – but excitement is growing to see who will be named as the top players in the upcoming game.

Friday bought numbers 40-31, with Tottenham star Christian Eriksen’s impressive 2016-17 season earning him an improved overall rating of 87 and seeing him placed 40th on the list.

That placing will likely still prove controversial due to another north London playmaker’s presence at number 32 on the rankings. Mesut Ozil might have come in for heavy criticism over the last few months, but the Arsenal star remains a formidable operator on FIFA 18, where he has an 88 ranking.
