EA Sports revealed the top 100 highest rated players for FIFA 21 on Thursday, just 26 days before the release of the games, and some of the ratings haven't gone down well.
Lionel messi retains his place at the top of the rankings, with his 93 out of 100, with Cristiano Ronaldo not far behind on 92 and Robert Lewandowski, who many believe should be this year's Ballon d'Or winner, on 91.
Whilst the top three might be unquestionable, it's not stopped fans disagreeing with some of the other ratings, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's downgrade amongst the issues fans have.
The agenda on Aubameyang is crazy, why has he downgraded from an 88 to 87? How can he be 87 on Fifa while aguero is 89 and suarez, kane and dybala are 88 pic.twitter.com/FczZzrv0Bm- مَهْدِي:flag_lk: (@momahdi123) September 10, 2020

Somehow they downgraded Werner, aubameyang, and way more but have come to the conclusion that Joao Felix deserved an upgrade♂️ this company man- Up (@Up57102598) September 10, 2020
Vardy* some of these ratings are criminal After the incredible season half of these players have had!

New #FIFA21 ratings are out and if you're thinking of pre-ordering I have something that may help with your decision.- Lewis H (@LewisH90) September 10, 2020
"Thiago is 85 rated."
That means Kante, Modric, Fernandes, Fabinho, Busquets, Pogba, Verratti and Henderson are higher.
You gotta be kidding me right @EASPORTSFIFA- Abishek (@kbabishekk) September 10, 2020
Thiago got downgraded form 87 to 85 wtf does they really watch football and Bruno Fernandes is ahead of Müller:sob::sob::sob::sob::sob: disgraceful can I just unsee this shit. #FIFARatings #FIFA21 pic.twitter.com/TIx47XZRkU
Someone at EA Sports really watched Aubameyang finish one goal off the golden boot despite playing for a side who finished with the fifth lowest chances created in the Premier League & decided that it would be a good idea to downgrade him on FIFA 21 loool.- Patrick Timmons (@PatrickTimmons1) September 10, 2020
The interesting part about Aubameyang's rating is that he wouldn't even make a Premier League XI, despite being last season's second top scorer.
However he's not the only one as Jamie Vardy doesn't make it in the XI either, and is below the Arsenal forward, despite topping the charts last season.
FIFA fans certainly can't claim that EA are biased against their club at least, because it seems that fans of every side have got something to complain about.
Just wait till the players start complaining about their own ratings though.
