The 20 best players in the Premiere League have been revealed in "FIFA 17." Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads the pack as the top star in the game.

Daily Star revealed that the top 20 Premiere League players in "FIFA 17" include Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool), Willian (Chelsea), Diego Costa (Chelsea) and Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), with a rating of 85. Dimitri Payet (West Ham United), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea) and Santi Cazorla (Arsenal), are also included, with a rating of 86. David Silva (Manchester City) and Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) were rated 87. Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Eden Hazard (Chelsea) and Petr Cech (Arsenal) rounded out the top 10, with a rating of 88.

At numbers 3 to 5 in "FIFA 17" are Mesut Ozil (Arsenal), Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea) and Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), with a rating of 89. David De Gea (Manchester United) is at the No. 2 stop with a rating of 90, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United), is at the top with a 90 rating. Based on the recent list, Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) apparently did not make the cut despite being the captain of England. No player from Leicester City also made the list, despite the team winning the Premiere League last season.

RiyadMahrez, Premiere League player of the year, was not deemed by "FIFA 17" as a top 20 player. There are actually 10 players in the"FIFA 17" list who belonged to teams who failed to finish in the top four last season. Konami previously launched a playable demo for PES 2017, but Electronic Arts (EA) did not yet indicate when the demo for "FIFA 17" will become available. Recent news revealed that "FIFA 17" lead producer Garreth Reeder shared that the demo will launch on Sept. 13, 2016. He did not divulge any more details, although it is likely that the demo will be playable on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

GameReactor reported that the "FIFA 17" demo at Gamescom 2016 showed that the available teams are Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, FC Bayern Monaco and Olympique Lyonnais. Also available are the Seattle Sounders, Paris Saint-German, Tigres UANL, Inter, Juventus and Gamba Osaka. The stadiums in "FIFA 17" will include Centuitylink Field, Stamford Bridge and Suita City Football Stadium. "FIFA 17" will officially launch on Sept. 29, 2016.
