Wingers might not be as important as midfielders or strikers in FIFA 19. Many games opt to play with 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-2-1-2 formations that have no one on the wings.

However, when the opponent is pressing a lot and the game is played a lot in your half, everyone understands the need for wingers. They can help in counter attacks and getting the ball into the box when you have a good striker in there.

Here are three Premier League wingers who deserve an upgrade:

#3 – Marcus Rashford

It feels like Marcus Rashford has been playing for Manchester United for a really long time now. Ever since he made his debut against Arsenal under Louis van Gaal, he has been in the first team scene.

The Englishman, who loves playing as a striker, was forced to play as a left-winger by Jose Mourinho as he did not have anyone else to play in that position. Rashford excelled there as well but was not about to get to the form he had as a striker.

In FIFA 19, EA decided to list him as a left-winger itself instead of a striker. The move did get him an upgrade from 79 to 81 but that still does not justify his on-field performances.

Rashford is easily one of the best wingers in the league and ranking him lower than the likes of Juan Mata and Pedro, who are well past their prime, was a huge mistake. He is back playing as a striker now and EA should consider listing him as a striker itself.

As for his rating, he should be pushed to 83 or 84 as he is certainly as good as the ones in that category – Willian, Martial, and Bernardo Silva.
