Premier League champions Chelsea are unquestionably the best team in the land at the moment. And with the release of FIFA 16 coming up in September, you'd think their squad of players are going to be rather kindly rated when it comes to the latest version of Ultimate Team, right?
The Blues sauntered to the championship last year, guided by a strong core and Footballer of the Year Eden Hazard. And Jose Mourinho's cohorts will be hungry for more next season too - and ready to make an all-out-assault on the Champions League trophy.
Though, we've already mentioned FIFA Ultimate Team, so lets not beat around the bush any longer. This article intends to look at each player poised to feature in the Chelsea squad next season - individually - and attempt to predict the rating they'll be given by the FIFA game-gods. That's taking into account performances from last season, and each player's FUT card from last term.
Side note - the title's a little deceiving, but there are certain players coming back to Chelsea who have little-to-no chance of being there next season. So if you're wondering why Mohamed Salah, Victor Moses, Lucas Piazon, Oriol Romeu, Tomas Kalas and Nathan Ake (both reportedly going out on loan) are, there's your answer.
