Top 100 Footballers At This Very Moment 2016-17 (October Update)

We know that you’re far too excited for the next fully discussed version of the Top 100 Footballers in The World list (Coming out on New Year’s Eve). So to keep you occupied in the mean time, here you can follow along with what is happening in the rankings with updates coming in every single month. For more information on how the formula works to rank players or who is on the fringes of the list, comment below.


This month sees the sad departure of Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik who torn his ACL during Poland’s 3-2 win over Denmark in World Cup Qualifying, while Chinese Super League star Hulk and Portuguese midfielder William Carvalho also depart. The three incoming players are Tottenham’s Dele Alli who has found his scoring touch again in the league, Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic who is currently the joint-top assist maker in the Premier League and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino who just can’t stop scoring at the moment and is contributing massively to the Reds’ rise to the top of the table. Here is the Top 100 Footballers in the World at this very moment in time!
