The Belgian midfielder remains one of the most sought-after items in the world of FIFA Ultimate Team after retaining his 91 OVR.
The ratings are powered by the Ratings Collective, a talent scouting network with a passion for the world’s game, whose assessments of players across more than 30 attributes have come together to create the official FIFA 22 ratings.
Here is everything you need to know about the City squad:
Who are the top-rated City players?
Ederson and Raheem Sterling come in just behind De Bruyne to complete the top three at City.
The Brazilian is rated 89, whilst Sterling has been given 88.
Which player received the biggest upgrade?
The clear winner here goes to the 2020-21 Premier League Player of the Season, Ruben Dias, who has received a huge upgrade following an extremely successful debut campaign at the heart of our defence.
In FIFA 22, he has been given 87, which is a massive upgrade from his FIFA 21 showing where he was rated 81.
Other notable upgrades are awarded to EA SPORTS Ambassador Phil Foden, who is now rated 84 (previously 79), and summer signing Jack Grealish, who has moved up from 80 to 84.
Who is the quickest City player in FIFA 22?
The pace attribute is one that is not only debated amongst the FIFA audience, but hotly contested in the City changing room, too.
With more than respectable scores for Joao Cancelo (87), Gabriel Jesus (84) and Foden (84), the contest quickly filters down to a Kyle Walker versus Raheem Sterling showdown.
The right-back comes out on top with a score of 92, with Sterling just behind on 91.
See how Foden and De Bruyne pranked Walker about his 78 rated pace in the hilarious video below.
Which City player has the best shooting in FIFA 22?
With a rating of 86, De Bruyne once again has the most lethal shot in the squad.
He is closely followed by Sterling on 82, whilst Jesus is just behind with 81.
Having scored a combined 25 goals during the 2020-21 Premier League season, it’s no surprise they lead the way for FIFA 22.
Who is the best passer for City in FIFA 22?
De Bruyne remains City’s best passer on FIFA with a rating of 93.
The Belgian racked up an impressive 12 Premier League assists last season, bringing his domestic assists to 78 in a City shirt.
Ederson comes in with an incredible 93 for his kicking attribute, a feature he has retained since FIFA 21.
Ilkay Gundogan has been given a score of 85, with Bernardo Silva closely behind on 83.
Who is the strongest City player in FIFA 22?
Dias stakes a claim to the toughest player within the City ranks with an impressive score of 88, an improvement since FIFA 21, where he was rated 85.
Rodrigo and Fernandinho also rank highly for strength, with both scoring 82.
When is FIFA 22 released?
The new game will be released on Friday 1 October.
