With the release of the new EA Sports FC game, Liverpool’s team have once again given us some fun reactions to their new ratings.
Every year the release of an EA Sports video game always sparks debate among supporters and gives players a lot to talk about!
The game was rebranded this year after FIFA was dropped from the name due to the end of its 30-year partnership with EA.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has often been tasked with informing his teammates of their new valuations in the latest edition of the game, but his summer departures have seen Diogo Jota and Ibrahim Konade take up that particular mantle.
It’s fair to say that no Reds player was rated for 2023/24 in the 90s and there were mixed views on how their attributes were viewed by EA!
„EA says I’m faster than you!” Jota boasted as he and Konate compared their new cards.
The pair then walked over to Darwin Nunez and chanted the forward’s name en route to handing out his copy with an 82 rating.
Alisson was next, with Jota revealing to the Brazilian: „You’re my keeper in the Ultimate Team!”
High praise for a man who spends his free time playing this particular game!
Konade followed up that accolade by declaring him „the best goalkeeper in the world”. No arguments from us, ibo!
A common theme among players is comparing each other’s speed ratings, and Alexis McAllister was not impressed with EA giving him a 70 in that category.
Argentina scored a total of 82, Conade argues: „If you win the World Cup, you have to be 85!”
„I have an interesting statistic,” Jota said as he presented Andy Robertson with a copy of the game. „Rabo is faster than Ibo!”
We don’t know about that either!
Developers appear to have overlooked Trent Alexander-Arnold’s thunder against Bournemouth last season, with the right-back bemoaning the „disrespect” given a 69 shooting rating.
Konade encouraged Dominik Szoboslai in this regard, saying, 'Power shot, you need 110 bro!’
Players are rarely fully satisfied when they present their cards at the release of the game, but if the Reds are talking on the pitch this season, expect some increase in 12 months.
