Football.London have revealed that several Tottenham stars, including the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, are expected to get upgrades in their FIFA 22 player ratings.
We saw from the reaction of the Tottenham stars last year that many players certainly care how they are rated by FIFA each year.
However, with Spurs enduring a poor campaign last time out, one would expect the ratings of some of the players in the squad to drop.
Football.London have predicted that while Dele Alli, Steven Bergjwin, Davinson Sanchez, Matt Doherty, Ben Davies and Harry Winks could see their numbers drop, several Spurs stars may also see an upgrade.
Apart from Kane, Son and Hojbjerg, who are expected to see increases in their ratings after a fantastic campaign, it is suggested that new signings, Cristian Romero, Emerson Royal, Bryan Gil and Pierluigi Gollini are also expected to be upgraded.
Additionally, it is said that the numbers of Eric Dier, Oliver Skipp, Giovanni Lo Celso, Joseph Tanganga, Joe Rodon, Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon, might also see increases.
It appears Football London were right about Kane and Son, with EA Sports naming the duo in the top 22 players this week.
Kane will be rated 90, just three below the top player Lionel Messi. His stats are 70 pace, 91 shooting, 83 passing, 83 dribbling, 47 defending, and 83 physicality.
Son, on the other hand, is one rating lower at 89. His stats are 88 pace, 87 shooting, 82 passing, 86 dribbling, 43 defending, and 69 physicality.
Football London predict that the rest of the Spurs squad will be rated as follows: Lloris 87, Emerson 80, Romero 80, Dier 79, Reguilon 82, Hojbjerg 84, Skipp 75, Dele 81, Lucas 83, Gollini 81, Tanganga 75, Sanchez 80, Rodon 74, Lo Celso 83, Ndombele 81, Bergwijn 80, Gil 73, Doherty 79, Davies 78, Winks 78, and Sessegnon 76.
The report reveals that while EA Sports are yet to confirm the date for when the first player ratings are released, the release is expected to be around September 10.
Spurs Web Opinion
While some fans might not care about FIFA ratings, the game has undeniably become a big part of football fan culture over the last couple of decades. So, most players will certainly care how they are rated.
While Kane, Son and Hojbjerg certainly deserve upgrades, I am not sure the likes of Dier, Lo Celso and Ndombele are deserving of more points.
