5. Roberto Soldado – 81
The Spaniard has done annihilation of agenda to move abroad from the blackmail of getting labelled the affliction Premier League acceptation in history.
Tottenham Hotspur spent over ￡26 actor to accompany the above Spanish all-embracing to White Hart lane in the summer of 2013 and that absolutely looks like money well… wasted.
So far, the above Valencia man has denticulate 15 goals in 55 Spurs appearances and has now collapsed abaft the brand of Harry Kane in Mauricio Pochettino’s attack.
EA accept noticed this complete adenoids dive in fortunes for Soldado as he was an 84 in FIFA 14. Abounding Spurs admirers will altercate that he should accept had added taken off him but FIFA 16 should see him able-bodied into the 70s.
Liverpool took a huge gamble bringing the former AC Milan man to Anfield for ￡16 million last summer, and so far it has backfired. Majorly.
Mario has made 16 appearances for The Reds this season, scoring just twice. He is still yet to find the net in the Premier League.
This is some decline for the much maligned striker who scored 18 goals in Italy last season before scoring against England at last summer’s World Cup.
Liverpool have started using a ‘false 9′ system with Raheem Sterling playing up-front with two attacking midfielders in behind him. This change in tactics has seen an upturn in Brendan Rodgers men’s fortunes which means Mario may be sold in this transfer window before EA have the chance to lower his rating.
3. Radamel Falcao – 88
In FIFA 14 Falcao was rated 90. Not many could argue with that given his career until last season when he suffered cruciate ligament damage which kept him out of last summer’s World Cup.
Hypothetically, a player of his standing in the game should have taken to the Premier League like a duck to water, but this has been far from the case. Maybe he is taking longer than expected to recover from such a horrific injury but the next few weeks of Premier League action will tell us if the Columbian is the real deal.
Maybe EA had spotted a decline happening before he swapped the Stade Louis II for Old Trafford. Falcao scored 11 in 19 for the French side last season before netting two in three games this season before his big loan move, but still saw his rating drop by two points.
For Man Utd, Falcao has scored just three Premier League goals in 11 appearances. Surely a player that is rated 88 should be scoring a lot more than that?
2. Iker Casillas – 84
Despite award himself additional best at Absolute Madrid endure season, and afterwards a abhorrence appearance at the Apple Cup with Spain, EA still absitively to accord Iker an 84 appraisement in FIFA 15.
This season, his anatomy for Los Blancos has been steady. Annihilation more, annihilation less. But you accept to bethink that he is arena for the best club ancillary in the apple so his abilities won’t accept been activated too much.
However, his anatomy for his civic ancillary continues to be erratic. In a Euro 2016 qualifier adjoin Slovakia, Casillas inexplicably let a continued ambit chargeless bang go beeline through his physique and into the net. This amount his ancillary heavily as Spain absent the bold 2-1.
It’s a abashment to see one of the all time greats abatement from grace, but this is the case for the Apple Cup acceptable captian. As they say, all acceptable things accept to appear an end and Iker can’t be too far abroad from his career at the top akin of the bold ending.
1. Lionel Messi – 93
The man who has been the face of the FIFA games for the last few years is overrated in FIFA 15. There can’t be any denying it.
For at least a year now, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has had the better of the Argentine in almost every facet of the game. Ronaldo has scored more goals and won more cups.
However, Lionel did outshine Cristiano at last summer’s World Cup in Brazil but even so, that’s not worthy of having a better rating than the current Ballon d’Or winner.
There could be no arguments if the pair’s scores were simply reversed on FIFA 15. Ronaldo with a 93 and Messi with a 92 is a more realistic reflection of their form over the last 18 months or so at all levels of the game.
