Arsenal might not be the force they once were in the English Premier League, but they still have a say in the best league in the world, which means they also have good players. Which means it's worth it to take a look at Arsenal's FIFA 21 ratings.
Arsenal are often overlooked in the 2010s, both in FIFA and in real life. The emergence of Manchester City and Liverpool and the Gunners' own lackluster performances hasn't helped their status within the footballing world. Yet, Arsenal still count as one of the footballing greats and we'd like to pay homage to them by reviewing their FIFA 21 roster and creating the best possible starting lineup.
FIFA 21 Arsenal Ratings
Those who have kept a tab on Arsenal for the past, like, 15 years, would know that their strengths don't lie in defense. Hence why their best FIFA 21 players are in other areas of the field. Of course, it's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that leads the charge with a deceptively low 87 OVR. His speed and dribbling make him much more valuable than other forwards with similar and even higher overall ratings.

His partner in crime, Alexandre Lacazette, is another highly rated Arsenal player at 83. The only teammates he trails, besides Auba, are newcomer Thomas Partey and goalkeeper Bernd Leno. Partey and his 84-rated card is a particularly tasty bite for FUT players because of his Ones To Watch card that could spike his stats into the heavens.

For better or worse, Mesut Özil is still considered one of the best players at the Emirates Stadium. Wonder if he'll get some more playing time this season.
