So how on earth are players ranked? Well there’s a formula, and it works like this: Each player is given a score out of 100 in five different categories (overall ability, season form, club’s season form, contribution to club’s success, form from the previous season and difficulty of league). Each of these categories weigh a different amount towards the formula score. Overall ability weighs the most, a total of 40% of a player’s score, while season form is worth 37%. Then club’s season form and league of difficulty are worth 6% each, form from the previous season is worth 5%, and contribution to club’s success is worth 4%. After that for every Mastermind Team of the Week appearance they make in any competition, they are given a 0.02 added on, meaning that team of the week appearances are worth 2% of the total formula score. On top of that, a player will also be given bonus points worth up to 0.03 for things like making the team of the month, team of the season or winning the player of the month award.  The player with the highest formula score, is the best player in the world and so on. That is how the formula score works.

Riyad Mahrez TOTS

For example, this was Riyad Mahrez‘s formula score last season (before contribution to club’s success was introduced).
