EA Sports have announced the top 20 Premier League players in FIFA 17 ahead of the game’s release.

The latest installment of the popular football video game series is due out on September 29 and anticipation is building ahead of the big day.

Some player ratings had already been leaked but EA have now confirmed the 20 highest-ranked players from the world’s most popular league.

We hear every week about how the Premier League is the best on the planet and viewing figures from across the globe would support that argument.

Bucket loads of cash has been injected by bumper TV deals and that has bankrolled a major spending spree in England during the summer transfer window.

That splurge included a new world-record transfer as Paul Pogba completed a stunning return to Manchester United.

The 20 best Premier League players in FIFA 17 revealed:

United have three players in the top 10, more than any other team, but Pogba only comes in at ninth on the EA Sports list of the top 20.

Chelsea are still major player in the game and boast five of the best Premier League stars while Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are only represented once.

Here’s a detailed look at who makes the grade as we prepare for this Friday’s release of the demo , which will allow us to finally get our hands on the game...
