Man City dominate the ultimate team from the English top tier.
The ratings on FIFA 14 are sure to cause arguments between football fans the world over, so here is the ultimate Premier League XI according to the game.
GK – Petr Cech, rating 85: The Chelsea stopper edges just ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris – with the north London side having no representatives in the starting XI.
RB – Pablo Zabaleta, rating 82: As the 2013 PFA Team of the Year right-back it’s probably justified that Zabaleta makes it into the team, with perhaps Branislav Ivanovic the only real competitor.
LB – Ashley Cole, rating 85: Despite many now considering Leighton Baines the best left-back in England, Cole still edges ahead of the Everton star much like for the national team.
CB – Nemanja Vidic, rating 87: The Serb is a real favourite of FIFA and with a reputation as fierce as the 31-year-old’s who can really blame them?
CB – Vincent Kompany, rating 87: Arguably the best defender in the English top tier currently, not many can disagree with the Manchester City captain’s inclusion in the side.
CM – Steven Gerrard, rating 83: There are many players that have better stats than Gerrard but none who operate in central midfield so the Liverpool skipper gets the nod.
CM – Yaya Toure, rating 86: The Ivorian is perhaps one of the greatest box-to-box midfielders in world football and has already performed superbly in the 2013/14 campaign.
RM – Mesut Ozil, rating 87: Arsenal’s club record £42.4m purchase of the German means the Gunners also get one representative in this team; so good work all round really.
LM – David Silva, rating 88: The Spaniard has been consistent ever since arriving at the Etihad Stadium and is one the Citizens’ most important players in a hugely talented squad.
ST – Sergio Aguero, rating 88: Aguero represents the fifth City player on the list, in a team dominated by the 2012 Premier League champions.
ST – Robin Van Persie, rating 89: Always save the best until last as Van Persie is the highest rated player from the English league on the game.
