TheSportsRush brings Arsenal FIFA 19 Ratings of the top-10 highest rated players in the newest edition of the game.
FIFA 19 is set to launch on September 20, which will be the 26th edition of the game. Under their new head-coach Unai Emery, Arsenal have a new-look squad in the 2018/19 season. How does this squad fare in the FIFA 19 rankings?
Let’s take a look.
10: Petr Cech – 82
The former Czech Republic international has been the first-choice goalkeeper at Arsenal ever since he joined the club from Chelsea. However, he suffered with inconsistent performances throughout the last season, and Arsenal made a new goalkeeping signing this summer. Cech suffered a 4 point drop from his FIFA 18 rating.
9: Shkodran Mustafi – 82
Like Petr Cech, Mustafi also suffered a drop in FIFA ratings from last year. The German defender struggled with form for Arsenal in the 2017/18 season, as Arsenal finished a poor 6th in the Premier League.
8: Laurent Koscielny – 82
The French defender has been one of the mainstays at Arsenal, and a vital part for their defence for many years. He suffered a horrible injury during last season, and is currently on sidelines, but returned to training earlier this month.
7: Aaron Ramsey – 82
The Welshman’s future at Arsenal is still under doubts as he is yet to sign a new contract with the club, with the current one expiring in 2019. He, however, is still one of the highest-rated Arsenal players.
6: Sokratis Papastathopoulos – 84
Sokratis joined Arsenal this season from Borussia Dortmund and has been decent in his few outings for the club so far. He is Arsenal’s highest-rated defender, even when he took a 2-point downgrade from his FIFA 18 ratings.
5: Alexandre Lacazette – 84
The Frenchman scored 14 Premier League goals last year, as he was consistently on-and-off the pitch. With the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he spend a lot of his game-time coming off the bench. In the new season, however, he enjoys his role as a sole-striker, with Aubameyang complimenting him from the wings.

4: Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 84
The Armenian winger joined Arsenal in a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez in January this year. Mkhitaryan struggled during his time at Manchester United, and adjusted to his life at Arsenal in the initial few months since joining the club.
3: Bernd Leno – 84
Leno was signed as a successor to Petr Cech this summer, although he is yet to make his debut for the club. Unai Emery has confirmed that he might start in the Europa League game this week, however.

2: Mesut Ozil – 86
The former German international also suffered a two-point drop from his FIFA 18 ratings. He, however, continues to be a central part of Arsenal’s attack. He was given the number.10 shirt this season and is also made the club captain in the absence of Laurent Koscielny.
1: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 87
Aubameyang tops the list for Arsenal’s highest FIFA 19 ratings. The Gabonese was signed by Arsene Wenger in January, and was impressive in his first season at Arsenal. However, he endured a struggling start in the 2018/19 season, and has scored only one goal in five appearances for the clubs so far.
