Zlatan Ibrahimovic Comes First in FIFA 17’s Top 20 Players in the Premier League

He may be hurtling towards the end of his career but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still very much a forced to be reckoned with – both in the real world, as well as the virtual one.

FIFA 17 is about to hit the shelves in the UK this month, and the Manchester United striker, 34, has been ranked as the best Premier League player in this year’s edition of the console game.

Obviously, with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar and Suarez all plying their trade in La Liga, it meant the crown as the Premier League’s best virtual player was very much up for grabs, and the Swedish superstar’s impressive start to life in England appears to have swayed game makers EA Sports.

Zlatan’s overall rating of 90 beats United colleague David de Gea into second, who is given an overall rating of 89.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil – also rated at 89 – comes in third, whilst Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is fourth.
