West Ham United have enjoyed a decent start to the 2019/20 campaign, currently sitting eighth in the Premier League.
The Hammers have lost just twice so far, including against Manchester City on the opening day of the campaign, and look stable under Manuel Pellegrini.
They could also be a decent team to use on FIFA 20, with a five players rated 80+, providing a different option than the standard 5-star teams. So, who are their biggest stars?
We’ve got you covered. Read on for West Ham’s FIFA 20 player ratings and stats in full, as well as some tips.

West Ham’s FIFA 20 ratings: Goalkeepers
Lukasz Fabianski is a very reliable goalkeeper for West Ham, one some consider to be underrated by football fans – and maybe those at EA Sports. The Polish shot-stopper has an overall rating of 82 for FIFA 20, while deputy Roberto registers a 77.

West Ham’s FIFA 20 ratings: Defenders
West Ham’s defence is nothing to really shout about on FIFA 20, but it is certainly not bad. Fabian Balbuena top scores with a rating of 79, but the likes of Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Winston Reid and Aaron Cresswell represent options of 76 or higher.
Player to poach: In terms of young stars with big potential, West Ham aren’t very blessed on FIFA 20. But Issa Diop is certainly a more established star you’ll want to be signing for your own team. The defender can rise as high as 86 from his initial rating of 78, becoming a top tier centre-back, albeit not a world beater.

West Ham’s FIFA 20 ratings: Midfielders
In West Ham’s midfield sits their best player in FIFA 20, with Felipe Anderson 84-rated, keeping his rating from FIFA 19. He’s joined by Pablo Fornals and Manuel Lanzini in being rated 80 or higher, while Declan Rice’s 78 will continue to rise as the years roll on.
Player to poach: While Declan Rice will be one for the biggest clubs, this is for those who use the lower league teams. Teenager Conor Coventry starts the game at a measly rating of 58, perfectly achievable if the budget is right. But he can reach as high as 74 – a swing of 16 – turning into a gem in the lower levels.

West Ham’s FIFA 20 ratings: Forwards
West Ham’s defence and midfield are stacked, but their attacking is threadbare with just three recognised forwards to choose from. The standout name is, of course, summer signing Sebastien Haller, who brought a rating of 83 with him following a good season with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Player to poach: Albian Ajeti is yet to feature in the Premier League for West Ham, such is the importance of Haller, but the Swiss forward could be a good signing for you. Starting with a rating of 74, Ajeti can reach 82 if used right – turning into a striker player for the mid-table Premier League clubs or those teams around the world of similar level.
