Chelsea are embarking on a new challenge under Frank Lampard, with the club having to deal with a transfer ban alongside losing big players.
The likes of Eden Hazard, Gary Cahill and David Luiz all waved goodbye to Stamford Bridge over the summer transfer window, and their FIFA 20 standing has taken a hit as a result.
For the first time since FIFA 08, the Blues are rated just 4.5 stars in game, with their younger squad not yet reaching the heights of previous teams.
But what are the individual ratings? We’ve got you covered. Read on for Chelsea’s FIFA 20 player ratings and stats in full, as well as some tips.
Squad list is based on players in latest downloadable update at time of publication.
Chelsea’s FIFA 20 ratings: Goalkeepers
For years, Chelsea boasted high-rated goalkeepers in Petr Cech and then Thibaut Courtois, but now the Blues are slightly more average at the back. Number one Kepa Arrizabalaga is 84-rated, nine ahead of back-up Willy Caballero.

Chelsea’s FIFA 20 ratings: Defenders
A few senior members aside, Chelsea have quite a young defence in FIFA 20, with the likes of Andreas Christensen, Fikayo Tomori and Reece James bringing the average age – and rating – down.
Player to poach: Reece James is the obvious choice, with the world at his feet. Starting FIFA 20 at 73-rated, the right-back – who can also play in the centre of defence and midfield – boasts 73 crossing and 73 shot power, and can rise as high as 86 with regards to his overall rating.
Chelsea defender ratings for FIFA 20: Cesar Azpilicueta (84), Antonio Rudiger (82), Marcos Alonso (81), Kurt Zouma (80), Andreas Christensen (80), Davide Zappacosta (79), Emerson (77), Baba Rahman (74), Reece James (73), Michael Hector (72), Fikayo Tomori (72), Marc Guehi (60), Jack Wakely (59), Ian Maatsen (58), Tariq Lamptey (58).
Chelsea’s FIFA 20 ratings: Midfielders
All bar one of Chelsea’s players in FIFA 20 are rated 84 and lower. That one, understandably, is N’Golo Kante. He is the only Blues star in the top 100 players of the game, coming in with a rating of 89. Among midfielders, he is six higher than Chelsea team-mate Jorginho.
Player to poach: Billy Gilmour, currently 62-rated, could be a good buy in Career Mode for those starting out with less-financially stable clubs. The Scottish central midfielder has the potential to rise as high as 84, which can either bring profit or a solid addition to a decent-level club.
Chelsea midfielder ratings for FIFA 20: N’Golo Kante (89), Jorginho (83), Mateo Kovacic (82), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (79), Ross Barkley (79), Marco van Ginkel (77), Mason Mount (75), Billy Gilmour (62), George McEachran (59), Tino Anjorin (58).
Chelsea’s FIFA 20 ratings: Forwards
Eden Hazard leaving Chelsea was always going to be a big hit, and the Belgian’s absence has Olivier Giroud as the Blues’ highest-rated attacker at 82. The Frenchman is joined on 82 by Willian and Pedro, while starting striker Tammy Abraham is 76 and young star Callum Hudson-Odoi is 74.
Player to poach: Naturally, there is only one option here. Callum Hudson-Odoi may only be 74-rated at FIFA 20’s kick off, but play your cards right in Career Mode and the exciting winger could reach as high as 88. But snap him up early.
Chelsea forward ratings for FIFA 20: Olivier Giroud (82), Willian (82), Pedro (82), Michy Batshuayi (79), Christian Pulisic (79), Tammy Abraham (76), Callum Hudson-Odoi (74).
