9 Premier League stars who have been done dirty by their EA Sports FC 24 rating
EA Sports FC 24 is set to launch later this month and football fans across the globe are already beginning to squabble over the new ratings that have been handed out.
Of course, EA are never going to please everyone with their rating system and all of these are highly subjective, although we do feel as if some Premier League stars have been done especially dirty this year.
Using the ratings provided by FUTScoreboard, we have pulled together the nine Premier League stars who won’t be too happy with their new ratings.
Julian Alvarez – 80 rated
We get that Erling Haaland is the main man at the Etihad, but giving his partner in crime a mere rating of 80 seems harsh. Alvarez was excellent for Man City and Argentina last season as he enjoyed a record-breaking year winning the treble alongside the World Cup.
To put this bizarre rating into context, Alvarez is rated the same as Richarlison on the new game, who scored one league goal for Tottenham last season. We can’t help but feel like EA have had a stinker here.
Little bit of luck, but he won't mind! 🙌

Levi Colwill – 74 rated
“This year his improvement has been fantastic,” Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi told reporters when discussing the 20-year-old. Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t hesitated to throw him into Chelsea’s starting XI this season either.
We thought that Colwill might have been in for a bumper upgrade this year, but EA have had other ideas. The Chelsea star remains a silver card on the game which just doesn’t feel right.
Ben White – 80 rated
Arsenal fans look away now. Mikel Arteta made the brave call to convert White into a right-back last season and the former Brighton man excelled in his new role.
Given his excellent individual campaign, White will have been hoping for a juicy upgrade this year. However, he’ll be disappointed to learn that he has stayed the exact same rating as last year. We don’t understand either.
Alexander Isak – 81 rated
The Newcastle forward averaged a goal contribution every 138 minutes in the Premier League last season. Spending a large spell on the sidelines probably hampered him from having a bumper upgrade, but he’s surely worth more than an 81.
On his day he’s one of the most lethal forwards in the league, capable of cutting teams apart almost singlehandedly. We can’t wrap out heads around the fact that he’s not even one of Newcastle’s eight highest-rated players.
Calm as you like from Alexander Isak! 👏

Pape Matar Sarr – 72 rated
We didn’t get to see much from Sarr last season, but he’s surely worth more than a rating of 72. Under Ange Postecoglou so far, Sarr looks like a formidable force in the middle of the park and it probably won’t be long until EA realise they have made a mistake here.
Nathan Ake – 81 rated
While most of his Man City teammates are rated above the 85 mark, we can’t help but feel like Ake has been done a bit dirty here. The Dutch defender featured in 41 matches last season and played a vital role in the treble-winning season.
Considering he was 80-rated on the previous game, we think EA could have been a little more generous in giving him an extra rating or two.
Pervis Estupinan – 80 rated
He was arguably the best left-back the Premier League had to offer last season, but that is only good enough to earn a rating of 80 in EA Sports FC 24. You’ve got to feel he’s been done dirty there.
Michael Olise – 78 rated
The French playmaker ended last season with more assists to his name than Bruno Fernandes, James Maddison and Martin Odegaard. For Olise to not even reach a rating of 80 feels like a crime.
To be fair, the whole Crystal Palace squad might feel a bit hard done by as Olise’s partner in crime Eberechi Eze is also surprisingly low at just 79 rated.

Douglas Luiz – 79 rated
The Brazilian midfielder has been a vital cog in Unai Emery’s system and given his performances last season, he surely deserves a higher rating than 79.
Luiz chipped in with 12 goal contributions in the Premier League last season and undoubtedly had his best campaign in an Aston Villa shirt. A rating of just 79 feels like a slap in the face.
