The time has finally come as EA Sports gave us a first look at the official Ultimate Team ratings for FIFA 19 with a selection of the top 100 players.
The numbers 100 to 81 on this list have been revealed and there has already been quite a bit of controversy between the pace of Arturo Vidal and that of Marco Reus.
EA mocked the controversial nature of the ranking announcements with a promotional video of footballers such as Kevin De Bruyne, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr. Alexandre Lacazette even angered his card because he is slower than his teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Each player in the 100-81 places has a total of 85. Coming first at number 100 is Roma center-back Kostas Manolas.
The Greece international has been outscored by one in the overall standings and will once again be popular among FIFA players with a significant upgrade to 83. Other stats are just as excellent with 86 in defense and 83 in physics.
Meanwhile, someone who will be much less happy with his pace is Barcelona’s Vidal. Not only was he demoted from an 87 overall, but his pace took a huge hit, dropping from 75 to 57.
Meanwhile, his former Bayern Munich teammate Arjen Robben suffered the same fate as he fell from an 88 overall and saw his pace demoted from 86 to 79. The rest of his stats are still pretty good with 88 dribbles, 85 shooting and 81 assists.
Another big downgrade is Zlatan Ibrahimovic who fell from an 88 overall. Still, his rating of 85 is pretty high for MLS and his skill moves have returned to five stars. His 59 pace is far from great, but his 86 shots mean he’s still going to be lethal.
When it comes to the Premier League, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson had a massive five overall update with all of his stats on the rise The Brazilian now has 82 dives, 88 reflexes, 81 handling, 85 kicks and 83 positions.
