FIFA 19 Winter Upgrades: 5 Arsenal players who deserved upgrades
- How did EA not give these players an upgrade?
Arsenal's season has been pretty much like every other season in the last decade for them. They had a bad start, went on an unbeaten run and are now fighting for a top-4 finish.
Unai Emery has done well at the club so far but has a long way to go before he can make them title contenders. It would take a squad reshuffle and a lot of effort before they are anywhere close to the title.
Despite the side doing decent in the season, EA have opted to give just 3 of their players an upgrade during the Winter Refresh. Here are 5 Arsenal players who also should have got an upgrade:
#5 – Granit Xhaka
Granit Xhaka might not be fan favourite at Arsenal but the fact that they have won more games when he is on the pitch than on the bench, shows a lot. He has been dominating the midfield for them alongside Mattéo Guendouzi and/or Lucas Torreira, making it difficult for the opponents to pass through.
Rated at 81 in FIFA 19, EA should have seen his influence on the pitch and given him an upgrade. He has an 84-rated Team of the Week card as well this season but nobody expects him to be rated so high.
However, Xhaka did deserve an upgrade from 81 to 82 and also a push from a non-rare goal card to a rare gold card during the FIFA 19 Winter Upgrades. The Swiss star has been underrated this season and thus, the Arsenal fans too have ignored his contributions.
More than anything, his pace of 48 and shooting of 65 should have been increased to 55 and 70 respectively.
