FIFA 18: 5 players who didn’t deserve an upgrade in the Premier League ratings refresh
The FIFA 18 ratings refresh is finally upon us and the first round of rating updates comes from the most popular league in the world. As was expected, there are some eye-catching, and some eyebrow-raising inclusions in this list as is always the case with anything a franchise as big as FIFA tends to do.
This year's Premier League ratings refresh is especially important, because, this time there will be no downgrades for players in the English League and this bodes well for FUT players too, who may already have their squads set in stone.
The regular single point upgrades have been superseded by several multi-point upgrades this year, making this truly a ratings refresh meant for the players. But with football and gaming going hand in hand, we just had to find some flaws up front with the rating updates put forth by EA Sports.
Admirable as they may be, there are clearly some glaring errors in what the popular franchise have presented to their fans today. So here are 5 players who didn’t deserve an upgrade in the latest ratings refresh:
#5 Riyad Mahrez
There is no doubt that Riyad Mahrez has been Leicester City's best player in the Premier League this season with 8 goals and 7 assists but it pales in comparison to what the Algerian achieved just a few short seasons ago in the Premier League with the club, lifting the trophy and opening the eyes of fans around the world.
Add to this the fact that Mahrez has been crying out for a move away from the King Power Stadium practically all season. It seems highly likely that he has lost all will to play for Leicester and you have a disaster waiting to happen. That being said, it is just a one-point upgrade but 83 perhaps suited slightly more to an obviously gifted winger.
