The full release of FIFA 21 is just days away, with some already getting their hands on the newest edition, and excitement is high.

As part of their build up to the release, EA Sports drip-fed fans with various ratings and attribute reveals. There were no real surprises at the top of the ratings list with Lionel Messi coming out on top ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski in third.

At the same time, EA have released the top 10 players in each position, breaking them down to full-backs, centre-backs, goalkeepers, central midfielders, wingers and strikers. But another thing that has been the topic of conversation is the five-star skillers.

Players with five-star skill moves are so important on FIFA once again, capable of getting through the tightest of gaps and beating the best defenders. When the right skills are used at the right time and in the right combination, five-star skillers can be unstoppable. That’s why they can be so popular on Ultimate Team, where prices often rise if a footballer boasts the skills to pay the bills.

In FIFA 21 there are a grand total of 52 players blessed with five-star skill moves (two more than FIFA 20), ranging from the expected 92-rated Cristiano Ronaldo to Lyon’s new 67-rated Rayan Cherki. But who else made the list? Take a look below….
