Manchester City have not performed the way they did last season and that cost them dearly. They are 2nd in the table and are way off the mark compared to Liverpool, and also their own performances last season.
However, that has not stopped the FIFA 19 players from getting them into their team. City players are still in high demand and there are a lot of players who are getting sold for way beyond what the actual price should be.
Here's a look at three Manchester City players who will get a downgrade this rating refresh as their performances this season have not reflected their FIFA 19 rating:
#3 – Ilkay Gundogan
When Manchester City signed Ilkay Gundogan, A lot was expected from the German midfielder. However, he has not really impressed at Etihad and is finding it very difficult to get into the starting 11.
Gundogan has a lot of qualities but it's just not able to perform well in the Premier League. His lack of form last season still got his 84 rated card in FIFA 19 but when the rating refresh happens it will be very difficult for EA to justify his rating. Compared to the other players rated similarly Gundogan has done very little to prove that he deserves such a high rating.
While a huge downgrade isn't expected EA might push him down to 82 for sure. Any rating about that will make it very difficult for EA to rate the other players in the same category. With players like Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus rated at 84 and 83 respectively, Gundogan's rating of 84 makes it look like a huge mistake.
Not many FIFA 19 players will be affected by this rating change as he is not a part of the over 75% of the FIFA Ultimate Teams.
