The top 10 free-kick takers in the game caused a storm on social media, with Cristiano Ronaldo the most-noteworthy omission from the list.

Ronaldo’s Juventus team-mates Paulo Dybala and Miralem Pjanic made the cut, with Lionel Messi taking top-spot.

The top 10 fastest players in the game is set to be just as controversial…

Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang retain his title?

10 Sadio Mane

The Liverpool man makes defenders look silly

Mane’s blistering pace was one of the driving forces behind Liverpool’s ruthless run all the way to the Champions League final last season.

The Senegalese winger simply can’t be caught by defenders and has enjoyed a good goal-scoring start to this campaign.

The 26-year-old is a vital component of Jurgen Klopp’s deadly attacking trident and is rightly so one of the fastest players in FIFA 19.

9 Kekuta Manneh

A former MLS cult hero

Manneh looks as though he could have one of the very best silver cards in this year’s game.

The St. Gallen winger used to be a popular pick during his time in MLS with Vancouver Whitecaps, but is now playing out in Switzerland.

Manneh would still make a brilliant option for any players looking to build a cheap USA team, with the 23-year-old the fastest American in FIFA 19.

8 Kingsley Coman

The Frenchman has lightening-quick pace

Coman failed to even make the top 20 fastest players in FIFA 18, which makes his rise up to 8th place in FIFA 19 a surprising one.

The Bayern Munich man boasts 94 pace to go with his outrageous five-star skill moves.

The Frenchman will no doubt be a popular pick for the anyone building a Bundesliga side.

Get Coman in your squads ASAP… if you can catch him!

7 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The Gunners striker has seen his pace drop from FIFA 18

Aubameyang was officially the fastest player in last year’s game.

The Arsenal man has however seen his pace drop from 96 to a still very respectable 94. But a downgrade nonetheless.

The lightening-quick striker can perhaps feel hard done by following his downgrade.

We still expect Aubameyang to be one of the best Premier League strikers in FIFA 19.

6 Jurgen Damm

The Mexico international has blistering pace

Damm has retained his place as the sixth fastest player in FIFA.

The Mexican has however been dealt a downgrade in his overall rating, dropping from 76 to 75.

The Tigres wide-man will still continue to be a popular pick or those building a Mexican squad.

5 Leroy Sane

Sane tore defenders apart with his speed last season

Sane has struggled to nail down a regular place in Pep Guardiola’s Man City side this season.

We have no doubts however that he will be one of the first names on the team-sheet for those building a Premier League squad.

The German international has a +1 increase on his pace from FIFA 18, as well as a massive bump in his overall rating.

Sane’s 82 card from last year’s game is nothing compared to his 86 rated effort in FIFA 19. Defences beware.

4 Douglas Costa

Ronaldo’s team-mate is outrageous down the wing

Costa is one of Europe’s most exciting wingers and his impressive card in FIFA 19 is a reflection of that.

The Brazilian failed to make the top 20 fastest players in last year’s game, which makes his rise to fourth place even more impressive.

The Juventus man is set to terrorise defences as he will be one of the most devastating players in Serie A squads this season.

3 Gareth Bale

The Welshman could be one of the best players in this year’s game

Bale is a player who will have added responsibility now in the absence of Ronaldo.

Gamers will also look to the Welshman to be the spearhead of their Ultimate Team squads in this year’s game.

The Real Madrid man boasts an outrageous 95 pace in FIFA 19 and along with his four-star skill moves, will be one of this year’s best players.

2 Kylian Mbappe

This card though

Mbappe’s 87-rated card will strike fear in the heart of the opposition.

The PSG winger is officially the second-fastest player in FIFA 19 and has shot up in his overall rating.

The 19-year-old will burst down the wing and make defenders look silly with his five-star skill moves.

Mbappe also boasts an impressive four-star weak foot. This card is just something else.

1 Adam Traore

FIFA has a new fastest player

Traore takes top spot as the fastest player in FIFA 19.

The Wolves man has 96 pace on what is a very interesting looking card.

The rapid winger also has an impressive four-star skill moves and 83 dribbling, however just 61 shooting.

It’s clear that Traore will be the bane of defenders in this year’s game. Good luck defending against this guy.

*Takes a big gulp*
