It’s that time of year! EA sports have finally released the ratings for ultimate team for the new title of FIFA, let’s have a look at how the Chelsea players were rated:
Veterans Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud are Chelsea’s highest rated forwards, all with an 82 overall. This season’s all about youth for Chelsea though and Tammy Abraham has been upgraded to a gold card with a 76 rating – significantly better than his FUT19 rating. New signing Christian Pulisic picks up a 79 overall while Callum Hudson-Odoi is a silver 74. Look out for both of these players getting upgraded during the games release if they impress this season.
N’Golo Kantè becomes Chelsea’s highest rated player with an impressive 89 overall, following the departure of Eden Hazard (who is rated at 91). Jorginho has been downgraded by one to an 83 however still has an impressive passing statistic. In what will be viewed as a fairly harsh rating, Ruben Loftus-Cheek sits at a lowly 79. Despite this being an upgrade on last year, Chelsea fans will feel he deserves to sit comfortably as an 80+ rated player. The departed Tiémoué Bakayoko still figures in this list and maintains a higher rating than the likes of Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount – who has a base rating of 75 but will surely be upgraded throughout the year.
Club captain César Azpilicueta remains Chelsea highest rated defender at 84, despite questionable performances both this season and last. Antonio Rüdiger has been upgraded from 81 to 82. Marcos Alonso has had a considerable downgrade, most noticeable losing a large chunk of his pace. Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen both pick up respectable 80 ratings. Much like Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and Fikayo Tomori begin life as silver cards on Fifa 20 but could well become gold later in the year. Emerson is rated just 77!
This will come as a surprise to Chelsea fans after his impressive recent displays.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has been rewarded with an impressive 84 rating, putting him amongst the top stoppers in the Premier League while back-up Willy Cabellero maintains his status as a gold rated player at 75. Jamie Cumming and Jamal Blackman sit at 54 and 69 respectively.
Well that’s it. There’s the official ratings for the Chelsea squad in FIFA 20. What do you think? Who’s been over or under rated? Let us know!
