As the new season hits its stride, we look at the best footie games available for 2018/19 on the PS4, Xbox, PC and phones

If you want to join in but were born with two left feet, flex your thumbs instead with one of these games – the six best on the market right now. Video game football isn’t just about pretending to be Harry Kane or Pep Guardiola: some of these take a strikingly original approach to the beautiful game.
