FC Barcelona FIFA 17 Ratings:
As expected, Barcelona has the best ratings in the game with Messi (94), Neymar (91) and Suarez (90). So much pace and skills upfront it will take some stopping this Barcelona side in the game.
Real Madrid FIFA 17 Ratings:
Real Madrid keep their ratings from 2016 and they are one of the fast teams in the game with Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema bulling defenders.
Juventus FIFA 17 Ratings:
Juventus has spent their Pogba money wisely, Bringing in several top class players including Napoli’s Higuain and Roma’s Pijanic. Thats how their ratings looks in FIFA 17.
Manchester City FIFA 17 Ratings:
Pep Guardiola’s Man City is probably the most balance premier league side. Pacey forwards, powerful midfield and a solid back four.
Chelsea FIFA 17 Ratings:
After terrible 2015-16 not much was expected as far as Chelsea ratings were concerned.
Arsenal FIFA 17 Ratings:
A very solid all around team with slight disadvantage as far as their defense is concerned.
Liverpool FIFA 17 Ratings:
Klopp has put together a decent squad and this Liverpool side has alot of pace and skill upfront with Mane, Firmino, Sturridge and Coutinho all getting slight increases.
Tottenham FIFA 17 Ratings:
Last season’s best premier league side, Tottenham also got some ratings increase but not enough to make them stand out.
Leicester City FIFA 17 Ratings:
Having won the Premier league title one would have though Leicester players to get decent increases but they remain more a less same at high 70s with the exception of Vardy and Mahrez who are 80 and 83 respectively.
