Has there ever been a more exciting league? This year, the Premier League looks set to be firecracker of a league with atleast 5 potential title winners. Plus with the inclusion of so many new stars from other leagues as well as older players finding their form or youngsters improving, the league gets even more exciting. Many Players have raised the bar at which football is played in England, through that many players have improved themselves. We can see the improvement with our eyes, and so we can be sure of improvement in the ratings of certain players in FIFA 15.
The mercurial striker from Manchester City has had a brilliant season and propelled his club to a title victory. He comes in this season with even more fire, improving his form and causing terror to opposing defenders. He scored in Manchester City’s opening season game, showing everyone that he is still on top of his game. Already highly rated at 88, his rating should be definitely improved to around 89 or 90 as he’s getting more deadly every season.
FIFA 14 rating- 88
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 89-90
Joining the Premier League after a breakthrough season at Athletico Madrid, where he scored 27 league goals in 34 matches for Atletico Madrid and guided them to Champions League final as well, Diego Costa looks hungry for the premier league title. His opening game for Chelsea slammed all doubts on whether he could play like before, in English soil. He has already opened his account at Chelsea, scoring in his opening game and looks set to add on to it. FIFA 14 rated him at 83 but expect him to get an overall increase to at least 87 in FIFA 15.
FIFA 14 rating- 83
Predicted FiFA 15 rating- 87
The Manchester City captain was a rock for his team. Dependable and tough, he held City’s defense line and even scored crucial goals. Currently considered as one of the best center-backs in the business, Kompany continues to prove his mettle through crucial tackles, breaking up opposition attacks and soundly controlling the game from behind. Rated at 86 in FIFA 14, he could possibly make to 88 in latest version of the game
FIFA 14 rating- 86
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 87-88
David De Gea-
Manchester United may have suffered last season, but through that suffering, some good things have come. United defense was in shambles last year, which meant that the Manchester United goalpost was peppered with shots. But cometh the hour, cometh the man. De Gea rose to the challenge, showing vast improvement from the skinny tall awkward lad he had come as and saving Manchester United from slipping further down the table. In FIFA 15, De Gea’s rating would surely have risen to about 84 or 85 from the rating of 82 in FIFA 14.
FIFA 14 rating- 82
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 83-84
The Spurs custodian is considered as one of the best keepers currently, tempting PSG to lure him away from White Hart Lane. Within the game also, this keeper grows quick in one season only in FIFA. That said, he is the man that Tottenham depends on and let me tell you, he has not disappointed, pulling off crucial saves in his stylish and acrobatic manner. I’d expect him to increase his rating from 84 to around 86-87 in FIFA 15.
FIFA 14 rating- 84
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 86-87
Chelsea's more defensive-minded, 6'4" central midfielder is not rated correctly in FIFA 14, when you look at his ability and the performances he put on over the past season. Since he’s come back to London, he's been a solid force in the middle of the pitch for the Blues, winning the ball well and keeping possession with strength and footwork, even against deadly players like Yaya Toure. On top of that, he showed a surprising range of passing and astute vision. An 81 is just too low for such a player and after looking at last season, looks likely to climb to 85-86
FIFA 14 rating- 81
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 85
Everton's keeper has been a dependable, capable player for years and he was on fire this World Cup for the U.S. He saved his national side on countless occasions, and though he couldn't stop them all, Howard showed sound positioning and great reflexes. He's among the best keepers in the world right now and a rating of 81 just does not give justice to his ability. He should most likely be at 85 or more
FIFA 14 rating- 81
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 85
The 19 year-old caused a sensation when he moved to Manchester United from Southampton in recent week, for around £30 million. The amount of money spent on him tells us about his ability. Shaw put on impressive displays for his boyhood club, playing as a more attack-minded fullback who bombarded down the wing and whipped in crosses to create chances. It is understood that he is still a teenager, so one can't be sure about steady reliability, but following a full season of solid performances and with the potential to grow, Shaw definitely deserves much more than his 74 rating, which should now be around 79.
FIFA 14 rating- 74
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 79
Aaron Ramsey’s form over the past season has steadily improved, surprising everyone when fit. The young Welshman has done it all, ranging from wonder goals to strong tackles for the Gunners. In just 23 appearances last season he scored 10 goals. All he needs to worry about is avoiding injury this year, otherwise he is one of the top playmakers in the Premier League. In FIFA 14, he’s rated at 82 but that should likely increase to 84.
FIFA 14 rating-82
Predicted FIFA 15 rating-84
The young winger blossomed at Anfield last season, often starting for Liverpool and netting up to 10 goals and seven assists in 30 total matches in all competitions. This speedy 19 year old still has plenty of room to develop, and by the way he played for Liverpool’s opening game this season, it looks like he’s only going to get better. He deserves an increase in rating from a dismal 79 to at least an 82
FIFA 14 rating- 79
Predicted FIFA 15 rating- 82
