Arsenal stars Bukayo Saka and William Saliba have both received upgrades to their ratings in FIFA 23, EA Sports has confirmed.
Saka and Saliba have been in great form for the Gunners this season, with Mikel Arteta’s side sitting at the top of the Premier League after a strong start, winning five of their opening six league matches.
Saka has scored once and assisted three goals in six appearances so far, whilst defender Saliba has helped the team record three clean sheets and has both a goal and assist to his name.
Last season, which is the period EA Sports will ultimately base their ratings on, both players had impressive campaigns, with Saka grabbing 11 goals and registering six assists in the league, whilst Saliba’s Marseille side secured second place in Ligue 1.
As a result, both players have received upgrades to their ratings in FIFA 23, with Saliba’s rating, in particular, being upgraded significantly. The French defender was given a rating of 75 in FIFA 22, but this will increase to 80 in FIFA 23, an upgrade of five overall rating points.
The 21-year-old’s pace has jumped by eight, going from 70 to 78, with his shooting (33-39), passing (62-69), dribbling (66-71), defending (76-80) and physical (77-79) all being upgraded significantly. The youngster could be a great option for starter FIFA 23 teams, particularly those who want to build a starter Premier League side.
Saka has also been given an upgrade, with the winger’s rating increasing from 80 in FIFA 22 to 82 in FIFA 23. The England international’s pace remains at 84, but his shooting (68-74), passing (76-78), dribbling (82-83) and physical (64) stats have all been upgraded in the latest FIFA title.
