EA rated his best ability being his pace and dribbling, with both given ratings of 77 out of a possible 99.

Additionally, Ayew was given four star skills, with five stars being given to the most skilful players, with the likes of Barcelona forward Neymar in that category.

The top spot in the game fell to Cristiano Ronaldo who is rated a staggering 94, one more than Ballon d’Or rival Lionel Messi, who scored 93.

The three highest rated Premier League players were Manchester trio Zlatan Ibrahimović, Paul Pogba and Kevin De Bruyne, who were given ratings of 90 and 89 respectively.
