FIFA 18 best players by position(Reprinted)

FIFA 18's best players are arguably the main reason plenty of fans will hop into the latest edition of the game, with all-new player ratings always being a huge draw.

This year, we've separated our rankings into a list of FIFA 18's best players by postion, which you'll find here in this guide, and a separate piece listing FIFA 18 player ratings for the top 50 best players Overall.
Best Goalkeepers in FIFA 18
Goalkeepers are of course the most important players on the pitch and that opinion has nothing to do with my own not-so-illustrious past as a 'keeper myself.
There aren't too many surprises here, although some might argue David de Gea deserves to run Manuel Neuer a little closer for that top spot, whilst the legendary Gianluigi Buffon continues to hold his own amongst the greatest in the world.
Rank  Player  Club Overall Rating
1 Manuel Neuer Bayern Munich 92
2 David De Gea Manchester United 90
3 Gianluigi Buffon Juventus 89
4 Thibaut Courtois Chelsea 89
5 Hugo Lloris Tottenham Hotspur 88
6 Jan Oblak Atlético Madrid 88
7 Samir Handanovič Inter Milan 87
8 Petr Čech Arsenal 86
9 Stéphane Ruffier AS Saint-Étienne 85
10 Marc-André ter Stegen FC Barcelona 85

Best Defenders in FIFA 18

With FIFA 18 being such an end-to-end affair, having a set of strong, fast, reliable defenders is becoming increasingly important. Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld and, amazingly, Chelsea's David Luiz are the only Premier League defenders in the game's top ten (sneaking in alongside Alex Sandro of Juventus, with the left back also on 86), which is a little dissapointing but probably a fair reflection of the league's general standard in recent times.
Rank Player Club Overall Rating
1 Sergio Ramos Real Madrid 90
2 Giorgio Chiellini Juventus 89
3 Mats Hummels Bayern Munich 88
4 Diego Godín Atlético Madrid 88
5 Thiago Silva Paris Saint-Germain 88
6 Jérôme Boateng Bayern Munich 88
7 Gerard Piqué FC Barcelona 87
8 Marcelo Real Madrid 87
9 Toby Alderweireld Tottenham Hotspur 86
10 David Luiz Chelsea 86

Best Midfielders in FIFA 18

This year, just the one midfielder breaks into the top ten, although that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of world class players in the middle of the park. In fact, there's an abundance - particularly of the creative variety - giving you a range of options for assembling your 2012 Barcelona-rivalling midfield.

Perhaps the bigest surprise here is Paul Pogba's fairly moderate 87 rating, behind Bayern Munich's Thiago - who's a great player, but we'll leave you to tear that decision apart yourselves. Inisesta, Rakitic, Silva, and Hamsik all equal the likes of Pogba and Kanté on 87, which is worth noting. Oh, and interestingly Paulo Dybala is listed as a CAM, rather than a CF or Striker, so bear that in mind when checking out the lists of forwards just below.

Rank Player Club Overall Rating
1 Toni Kroos Real Madrid 90
2 Luka Modrić Real Madrid 89
3 Kevin De Bruyne Manchester City 89
4 Paulo Dybala Juventus 88
5 Thiago Bayern München 88
6 Mesut Özil Arsenal 88
7 Marco Verratti Paris Saint-Germain 87
8 N'golo Kanté Chelsea 87
9 Paul Pogba Manchester United 87
10 Arturo Vidal Bayern München 87

Best Wingers in FIFA 18

Alright, time to get down to the business end of attackers, starting with wingers. The main talking point, as always, is the endless Messi vs. Ronaldo debate. Ronaldo gets the nod this time - we're sure that has nothing to do with the fact his face is all over the game (although he has won just about everything in the past few years).

Good wide men are as essential as ever this year, and are pretty rare. They also come out as the highest-rated overall bracket too, so this list in particular is one to keep an eye on:

Rank Player Club Overall Rating
1 Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid 94
2 Lionel Messi FC Barcelona 93
3 Neymar Paris Saint-Germain 92
4 Eden Hazard Chelsea 90
5 Alexis Sánchez Arsenal 89
6 Gareth Bale Real Madrid 89
7 Arjen Robben Bayern München 88
8 Frank Ribéry Bayern München 86
9 Marco Reus Borussia Dortmund 86
10 Angel Dí Maria Paris Saint-Germain 85
Best Strikers in FIFA 18
Finally, we've assembled a list of the best Strikers in FIFA 18 and their respective ratings. Barcelona's Suárez takes top spot, amid some strong competition from the likes of Bayern's Lewandowski after another incredible season in the Bundesliga. Expect Griezmann and Aubameyang to both continue to be strong choices this year thanks to some blistering pace, too, while Ibrahimovic, Lukaku and and Cavani are great bets for those who prefer pace on the wings and a strong header in the middle to get on the end of crosses.

Bear in mind that as well as Strikers this includes Centre Forwards, such as Thomas Müller, who don't always fit into the standard Striker role.
Rank Player Club Overall Rating
1 Luis Suárez FC Barcelona 92
2 Robert Lewandowski Bayern Munich 91
3 Gonzalo Higuaín Juventus 90
4 Sergio Agüero Manchester City 89
5 Antoine Griezmann Atlético De Madrid 88
6 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Borussia Dortmund 88
7 Zlatan Ibrahimović Manchester United 88
8 Edinson Cavani Paris Saint-Germain 87
9 Thomas Müller Bayern München 86
10 Romelu Lukaku Manchester United 86
