Fifa 19 is coming out soon and EA Sports have released the ratings for the top 10 players including Man Utd player David de Gea.
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been listed in the top 10 highest-rated Fifa 19players.
De Gea is among five United players who have made the top 100 and the Spaniard has finally supplanted Manuel Neuer as the video game’s best goalkeeper.
Fifa gamemakers EA Sports have given De Gea a 91 rating – the same as Luis Suarez, Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Luka Modric. Fellow ‘keepers Neuer and Thibaut Courtois are on 91.
EA Sports wrote: “The world’s highest-rated goalkeeper has the best nerves in the business; his 94 Reflexes and 90 Diving ratings mean that it will take more than a decent shot to catch him off-guard.
“Years of experience at the highest level have also honed the Spaniard’s superb 88 Positioning, and he has become one of the finest at distributing the ball with his foot, thanks to an 87 Kicking rating.”
Fifa cover star and United great Cristiano Ronaldo is listed at number one with a 94 rating, with Lionel Messi the only other player with 94. Neymar is listed third with 92.
United’s other top 100 representatives are midfielder Paul Pogba (88), forward Alexis Sanchez (87), striker Romelu Lukaku (87) and defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic (86). Ex-United number nine Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stayed on the list with an 85, despite moving to the MLS.
“Pogba left Russia as one of the most impressive players from throughout the tournament,” EA added. “He dominates midfield for club and country using a combination of creativity (86 Passing, 85 Dribbling) and brute force (87 Physical) that is rarely seen in the modern midfielder.
“But he doesn’t have to choose between brute force and technical wizardry, because he has an ample amount of both to work with.”
“While he tends to drift all over the front line for both Manchester United and the Chile national team, Sanchez is in his element when lining up on the left and cutting inside (using his 89 Dribbling rating) to create havoc and open up space or to take a shot for himself utilising his respectable 83 Shooting rating.”
“At first glance, the Belgian is the prime example of a traditional striker: Tall, strong (87 Physical), capable of brilliant finishing (82 Shooting).
“But Lukaku has earned himself a place in the game’s elite by combining his traditional forward’s qualities with an 84 Pace rating, meaning that he’s as likely to leave a defender in the dust as he is to muscle him off the ball. This is a rare combination in today’s game and explains the Belgian’s strong, consistent scoring numbers for both club and country.”
“Generally deployed solely as a defensive midfielder, Serbian international Matic treats his role like a highly-specialized craftsman would. With 83 Defending and Physical ratings, Matic can do nearly anything needed in a defensive capacity – which he is often tasked with doing.”
