The FIFA 19 Player Ratings for the whole Arsenal team have been leaked. The leak came after a Demo presentation for the game at Gamescom 2018. Arsenal fans would probably want to look away from these FIFA 19 Player Ratings.
The rating of Arsenal FC players might not be satisfactory but this one one of the club called “Collin” didn’t shy away when the leak was out. Collin went and posted the pictures of the leaked FIFA 19 player ratings of Arsenal on his Twitter feed.
Most of the players of the North London club have been given major downgrades due to their lowly performance in the English Premier League last season. Arsenal FC finished sixth in the league which means that after continuous participation in the Champions League, this season the team would miss out on the most prestigious cup in Europe. Therefore, reducing the FIFA 19 player ratings is perhaps justified.
Even the highest rated players of Arsenal are not as good as in the previous installment of FIFA video games. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the best-rated player of the club with an 87 rating which is one less than player’s rating in FIFA 18. The downgrade seems a bit unfair seeing the Gabonese footballer’s tally of 31 goals in past season. Although he arrived in the January transfer window at Arsenal he certainly lived up to the expectations.
The second best player of Arsenal is the World-Cup winning German, Mesut Ozil. Ozil has got an 86 rating, which means that he been dragged 2 rating down from the previous 88. Ozil faced a lot of forced criticism following this year’s World-Cup performance. This even led to the German announcing a controversial early retirement from his international team following a lot of racism towards the player.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette have both been given an 84 in the FIFA 19 player ratings compared to their 85 rating in FIFA 18. Petr Cech has been given a major change in FIFA 19 player ratings by pushing him down to 82 from 86 following numerous errors leading to goals by the Legendary GK. On the other hand, Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny came down to 82 from 84.
Perhaps, the most unfair of all ratings is Aaron Ramsey’s 82 which did not change from last year’s rating. The Welsh put in pretty decent performances week in week out last season which saw him become Fan’s Player of the Year. Meanwhile, The freshly recruited, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos came down to 84 from 85 and 86 respectively.
Arsenal might not be the only club whose fans wanted to see better ratings of their club. The FIFA 19 Player Ratings seem to be on the loose after one after another leak. A lot of ratings for the biggest club in football were leaked earlier as well.
