Kylian Mbappe, Adama Traore and Alphonso Davies are the fastest players but how do they compare to real top speeds?
The fastest players on FIFA 21 have been revealed with some familiar names at the top of the list.
EA Sports have released the player ratings for the latest edition of the hit video game series ahead of its launch next month and speed is an important factor in the game.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, Wolves forward Adama Traore and Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies were all given a pace rating of 96 and shared top spot.
The trio are well known for their speed and it is not surprising they are at the top of the list.
Manchester United winger Daniel James wowed fans last season with his explosive pace following his transfer from Swansea and he has been given a rating of 95, just one behind the top three players
Real Madrid youngster Vinicius Jr has also been given the same rating.
Watford forward Ismaila Sarr stunned Liverpool last season with his speed to hand them a first defeat of the 2019/20 season.
He’s been rewarded with a rating of 94 in FIFA 21.
Liverpool’s Sadio Mane is also among the top 20 ranking, also with a 94 rating.

But how does this ranking match up when compared to the fastest players in real life?
The Sun last month complied a list of the top ten fastest players in the world based on game speed data with some surprising results.
Kylian Mbappe recorded the top speed of 10.6 metres per second ahead of Real Madrid outcast – and impending Tottenham signing – Gareth Bale on 10.3 metres per second.
Bale doesn’t even feature on the list released by EA Sports, however.
Athletic Bilbao’s Inaki Williams was just behind with a speed of 9.9 while several other players were tied on 9.8 metres per second.
This included Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Antonio Valencia, Kyle Walker, Leroy Sane and Adama Traore.
