FIFA 17 TOTS Rating Predictions: Premier League

Chelsea and Tottenham dominate a should be incredible TOTS.


The first of the Team of the Season (TOTS) squads released after the Most Consistent squads is normally the Premier League’s, so that is where we begin with our FIFA 17 TOTS ratings predictions. Chelsea and Spurs dominated the league, and will subsequently dominate this squad.

Below, I have provided a little information on each player, but if you want to see the whole team then there will be an image at the bottom of this article.

So without further ado, let's begin.

Note: All stats are taken from fantasy.premierleague.com and Transfermarkt and are accurate as of May 11.


Hugo Lloris

Appearances: 31

Record: 21/6/4

Clean Sheets: 15

Goals Conceded: 20

Saves: 70

There are three possible keepers who could take this spot: PFA TOTY keeper David De Gea, title favourite Thibaut Courtois, and Hugo Lloris who boasts the most clean sheets and fewest goals conceded in the league. I have elected to go with the Frenchman for those reasons. He may not be seen as the best, but Čech was included for the same reason last time, so I see no reason for them to change that.


Marcos Alonso

Appearances: 29

Record: 25/2/2

Goals: 6

Assists: 3

Clean Sheets: 14

Goals Conceded: 18

When Chelsea brought in the Spanish wing back over the summer, it raised some eyebrows after his previous spells in England at Bolton and Sunderland proved to be major disappointments. What a revelation he has been, with his excellent work in defense but also willingness to go forward on the left wing, allowing Hazard to cut inside to where he is most effective. An excellent season topped off with a league winners medal for him — and a TOTS for us.


David Luiz

Appearances: 31

Record: 24/2/5

Goals: 1

Assists: 0

Clean Sheets: 14

Goals Conceded: 25

When Chelsea re-signed Luiz, there was a lot of questioning looks thrown their way, but he has proven to be a rock at the back for The Blues. A stalwart in defense, he is considered by many, including myself, to be the best of the three Chelsea center backs and is therefore a well deserved inclusion in the TOTS.


Toby Alderweireld

Appearances: 27

Record: 19/5/3

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

Clean Sheets: 14

Goals Conceded: 14

Which of Spurs Belgian center backs gets in the TOTS is a tough decision. I have gone with Alderweireld as I believe that he has been marginally better than his compatriot. A rock at the back, Alderweireld has continued his excellent form from last season, conceding two or more goals in one game this season - an incredible feat and well deserving of his place here. However, EA have a tendency to re-release Most Consistent TOTS players in their respective league TOTS, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Vertonghen take this spot instead.


Kyle Walker

Appearances: 32

Record: 20/8/4

Goals: 0

Assists: 6

Clean Sheets: 14

Goals Conceded: 21

Get ready to see this guy in almost every Weekend League matchup. Walker has had an excellent season for Spurs, helping them keep the best defensive record in the league. Whether Spurs are playing 3 or 4 at the back, Walker has always been a threat going forward due to his pace, and his work in defense is also incredible, meaning a well deserved TOTS for him.


Eden Hazard

Appearances: 33

Record: 25/3/5

Goals: 15

Assists: 5

After an incredibly poor season in 2015/16, Hazard found form again in the Euros last summer, and he hasn't stopped since. Hazard is second only to Zaha for attempted dribbles and number of fouls earned, but it is his all round excellence that has made the difference for Chelsea this season, and makes him an obvious inclusion in this TOTS.


N'Golo Kanté

Appearances: 33

Record: 26/2/5

Goals: 1

Assists: 1

The PFA Player of the Year award winner came as no surprise to everyone, with the Frenchman finally won it after missing out to his Leicester teammate Mahrez last year. With a second consecutive league title, Kanté has proven yet again that he is one of the best midfielders in the league, possibly the world, and should hopefully get a TOTY next year, on top of this TOTS.


Dele Alli

Appearances: 34

Record: 23/7/4

Goals: 17

Assists: 7

After winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award last season, Dele has gone from strength to strength. With his impressive goal haul this season, as well as all round excellent performances which have helped Spurs to second place in the league, he won the award again and will definitely be in the TOTS again.


Sadio Mané

Appearances: 27

Record: 17/7/3

Goals: 13

Assists: 6

Despite missing a couple of games due to the African Cup of Nations, the Senegalese winger has been key to Liverpool's attempt at reaching the Champions League. An injury in April may have ruled him out until the end of the season, but the 17 points his goals and assists have earned Liverpool should see him included in the TOTS.


Romelu Lukaku

Appearances: 35

Record: 16/9/10

Goals: 24

Assists: 6

The current league top scorer with 24 goals, Lukaku has been incredible this season. He has almost single-handed carried Everton to a respectable 7th place in the table. This may prove to be the last season for Toffees fans go enjoy watching the Belgian, as a move to a bigger club looks increasingly likely as he wishes to further his career by playing in the Champions League sooner rather than later.


Harry Kane

Appearances: 27

Record: 18/5/4

Goals: 21

Assists: 6

Spurs have proven this season that they are not a one-man-team, despite Harry Kane remaining one of the stars, he is not the only one. This season, he has been in fine form once again with his goals helping earn Spurs an extra 20 points. However, it is not just his goals that are important, his link-up play with Alli has been on another level recently, and there is little doubt that he deserves this TOTS.


Tom Heaton

Appearances: 33

Record: 11/9/13

Clean Sheets: 10

Goals Conceded: 44

Saves: 136

There are two members of Burnley's defence who could get into the TOTS. I have chosen to go with Heaton as he has been simply incredible this season, making a league high 135 saves to help earn valuable points for The Clarets as they have managed to avoid being dragged into a late relegation battle, mainly due to the excellence of their keeper.


César Azpilicueta

Appearances: 35

Record: 27/3/5

Goals: 0

Assists: 4

Clean Sheets: 15

Goals Conceded: 29

Dave, as he is known, has adapted well to his new role as a center back this season. He may not have been as important as David Luiz in Chelsea's defense, but he has played a key role in it. Even in the odd game he has played at wing back, he has been excellent in defense but also helpful going forward like in previous years.


Séamus Coleman

Appearances: 26

Record: 12/7/7

Goals: 4

Assists: 4

Clean Sheets: 10

Goals Conceded: 28

Before his horrible season ending injury in March, Coleman was arguably the best right back in the league. His bombing runs down the right wing were a key part of Everton's attack — they are averaging almost a goal a game less without him in the side than when he was. As his injury came late in the season, he should have easily done enough to earn a spot in the TOTS.


Kevin De Bruyne

Appearances: 33

Record: 19/9/5

Goals: 5

Assists: 17

In what would be considered a poor season for the Belgian playmaker in which his impact has been very limited compared to his last couple of seasons, he has still managed to top the assists leaderboard in the Premier League. As a result, I expect to see him included in the TOTS.


Christian Eriksen

Appearances: 34

Record: 22/8/4

Goals: 8

Assists: 12

The great Dane had been one of Spurs more underrated players this season. With all of the attention being on Alli and Kane, his excellent performances have gone fairly unnoticed in comparison. With his 8 goals and 12 assists, he has been an invaluable piece in a fast-maturing Spurs side.


Sergio Agüero

Appearances: 28

Record: 14/9/5

Goals: 18

Assists: 1

What Agüero has to do to get in the PFA Player of the Year shortlist is a mystery. He missed out yet again after an excellent season in which he aims to reach 20 goals for the third season in a row. A great season should definitely be rewarded with a TOTS, which he should get.


Zlatan Ibrahimović

Appearances: 28

Record: 15/10/3

Goals: 17

Assists: 5

Many people thought that the big Swede was past his best, and wouldn’t be able to recreate his form from his PSG days. To an extent, he wasn't able to, but even in an injury hit season, Zlatan scored 17 in the league which is a great return for any striker, so he should be included in the TOTS.


David De Gea

Appearances: 34

Record: 16/14/4

Clean Sheets: 14

Goals Conceded: 27

Saves: 72

For the second season in a row, David De Gea was included in the PFA TOTY. This seemed to be enough to see him included in the TOTS last time round, so I expect to see him this time round. He has made a number of crucial saves at key point in games to help earn a valuable point or three, which see Manchester United still in with a chance of getting into the Champions League based on their domestic finish.


Gylfi Sigurðsson

Appearances: 36

Record: 10/5/21

Goals: 9

Assists: 12

If Swansea manage to stay in the Premier League, then they will have to thank their Icelandic playmaker. Sigurðsson has been directly involved in 51% of their goals, along with an indirect involvement in several other goals. With the relegation battle now between just Hull and Swansea, it looks set to be a very tight finish to the league, and Sigurðsson looks set to play a key part in that finish. No matter where they end up, he certainly deserves a TOTS for his performances throughout the rest of the season.


Joshua King

Appearances: 35

Record: 10/9/16

Goals: 15

Assists: 2

King is having the best season of his life, with 15 of his 27 career league goals coming this year. He has helped carry Bournemouth to a very respectable 10th place in the league, with his goals helping earn them nine points extra - without which they would be in a relegation battle. The only thing that may prevent him getting in is that he only scored 3 goals in the first half of the season, and only found form in the past couple of months, but he certainly deserves a spot in the TOTS.


Alexis Sánchez

Appearances: 35

Record: 20/6/9

Goals: 20

Assists: 10

Despite many people believing that Alexis is on the way out at Arsenal and doesn't necessarily agree with Wenger's decisions, his contributions have probably kept the manager in his job with his key goals to save a point or grab a winner. As the only player to reach double figures for both goals and assists, his place in the TOTS is well deserved.


Diego Costa

Appearances: 33

Record: 25/3/5

Goals: 20

Assists: 7

Rumors of the Spaniard moving to China were put to rest in the January transfer window, but they have restarted now the season approaches its conclusion. If it is the last week, then it will be a great way to end his Chelsea career -- leading the line for the probably title winners is no mean feat. His 20 goals and 7 assists have earned The Blues an extra 22 points this season, which is an incredible achievement and well worthy of a TOTS.


Jermain Defoe

Appearances: 35

Record: 6/6/23

Goals: 15

Assists: 2

After EA gave out a reward TOTS player last week, expect them to do the same weekly. The best candidate for that spot is Jermain Defoe, who was the only reason Sunderland weren't relegated by Christmas. He may have dropped off a bit recently, but his performances saw him earn a well deserved recall to the England national team, and a TOTS would be just as deserved.
