A list of the top 10 players on every FIFA since 1994 has been revealed

The upcoming EA Sports FC 24 game is being released worldwide on September 29 and already there's much discussion about player ratings.

Several scores have been leaked online ahead of time, including the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal, and unsurprisingly many are not happy with the marks given.

The top ten highest-rated players will be made official as part of EA's ratings release but with help from YouTuber 'Shade' and sites like FIFA Index, we've looked at back at the best players in every game.
