EA Sports’ Fifa ratings have become a modern source of contention among players at the top level of football.

So before they unveiled some crucial numbers behind the 2018 version of the game, EA Sports asked some of the world’s best what they thought their rating should be.

It’s safe to say not all of them will be pleased.

First off, players such as Arjen Robben and Dele Alli were asked to read comments made in their direction.

When it came down to the player ratings, there was a real mix of approaches.

Paris St Germain forward Angel Di Maria, perhaps jokingly, guessed 93, but received an 84, while Tottenham’s Alli went for 85 or 86, but “nowhere lower though” – his 84 might sting.
