FIFA 19 Winter Upgrades: 5 Premier League players who should have got upgrades
The FIFA 19 Winter Upgrades are officially out and it's not what a lot of the players expected. There have been some controversial upgrades while the concept of a downgrade has been completely removed.
While the majority of the upgrades were spot on, there were a few who were surprisingly ignored. Here are 5 Premier League players who should have got an upgrade:
#5 David Brooks
It's David Brooks' first season in the Premier League and he is killing it with AFC Bournemouth. The young Welshman has been the focal point of their attacks and is easily the most underrated player in the league right now.
Rated at just 69, EA had a golden opportunity to give him a good rating. However, they chose not to give him one at all. Not only was he worthy of a huge upgrade and a move up to the gold card, but he could also have been the one to get the biggest upgrade in the Premier League.
#4 Antonio Rudiger
Antonio Rudiger surprisingly got a downgrade from his FIFA 18 ratings when the FIFA 19 ratings came out. EA pushed him down from 82 to 81 despite the German being one of the best centre-backs in the league last season.
Chelsea might have only finished 6th but if it wasn't for his heroics in a lot of games, they would have finished even worse. This season as well, he has been rock solid at the back and deserved an upgrade during the Winter Rating Refresh.
However, EA ignored him completely as there was a slight slump in form in January and late December too.
