Player rating verdict

Falcao deserves to be back in the top 100 FIFA players for this year's game release of the franchise.

His goals and overall contribution helped AS Monaco secure a surprise French League trophy, beating off big spenders PSG.

Falcao has been somewhat of a fluctuating player over recent years in the FIFA games. In FIFA 13 he was considered one of the game's best strikers, with an overall rating of 94. However, four years later after a few difficult seasons, his overall rating fell to 81 in FIFA 17. But it is good to see the Colombian back in the mix of FIFA's top 100 players.

Bernardo Silva, Sadio Mane, and Dele Alli are the first Premier League players on the Top 100 FIFA player ratings, all with a moderate 84 overall FIFA ranking. Alli is also the only Englishman to so far feature in the FIFA 18 Top 100 player ratings.

Manchester United winger Mkhitaryan is the so far best rated Premier League player within the top 81 rankings.

The Armenian comes in 83rd, one spot a head of fellow rivals Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany.

Expected to be number 1

Three main contenders immediately spring to mind for the FIFA 18 best player, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Neymar all fighting for top spot.

With Ronaldo winning Euro 2016 with Portugal and picking up the recent Ballon d'Or 2017, it is likely he will be the top ranking player on FIFA 18.

Neymar's big money move to PSG was to allow him to step out of the shadow of Messi at Barcelona. If he is able to do that and prove his worth, then next year we might see a new number 1 on FIFA 19.
