FIFA 16 Players Rating Predicting - Liverpool

fifa16mall Date: Jul/09/15 16:22:09 Views: 36

The Reds have already started to reshuffle their pack to take on the Premier League again next year, after a rather poor showing last season. In some attempt to pre-empt those standings, here’s a prediction of the ratings each Liverpool player could be handed for the new edition. This article will make a prediction of the FUT scorecard of every Liverpool player set to represent them in next year’s game.


Here they are, from lowest to highest…


33. Rafael Paez – 56

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 56

Spanish defender Rafa Paez spent last season out on loan at Bologna and Eibar, in Italy and Spain respectively.

He didn’t do enough in either spell to warrant an improvement; that’s if he even makes next year’s game.


32. Jordan Rossiter – 61

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 60

Jordan Rossiter is highly rated at Anfield, but the young midfielder is yet to break in to the club’s first team.

He could do next season now Gerrard has departed, but there’s still some big competition for places in the centre of the park.


31. Samed Yesil – 63

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 63

Though a decently-rated bronze player on FIFA 15, Samed Yesil made no impact on the first team last season. His rating will stay still.

He scored three goals in 11 Liverpool Under-21 appearances last term.


30. Joe Gomez – 63

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – N/A

Though he wasn’t included on FUT last year, former Charlton youngster Joe Gomez could make his debut in the format next season if he’s not loaned back out.

He’s recently been snapped up by the Reds, and could come in just above the 60’s mark.


29. Adam Bogdan – 69

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 70

Liverpool’s brand new back-up goalkeeper for next season is none other than Adam Bogdan; formerly of Bolton.

He only made ten Championship appearances last season for the Trotters, but Liverpool wanted him anyway. It looks as though he’ll take over Brad Jones’ role on the bench. 


28. Jon Flanagan – 70

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 71

Unfortunately for Jon Flanagan, he spent the entirety of the 2014/15 season out injured, after a very promising campaign the season before.

That could see his rating take a slight hit.


27. Javi Manquillo – 70

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 70

Javi Manquillo was brought in on a two-year loan deal from Atletico Madrid last season, but found his chances limited in the first team.

He’ll likely maintain his FUT score nevertheless, as we’ve only seen him in fits and starts in his first season at Anfield.


26. Jordon Ibe – 72

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 67

Here’s a young lad who made a real name for himself last season. 

Though Jordon Ibe’s first team exposure was limited, he made the most of his chances – particularly in the Merseyside derby against Everton. That should see him get a big bump in FUT rating for next year.

A handy silver player.


25. Fabio Borini – 73

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 74

After making a huge fuss about wanting to fight for his place at Liverpool last summer, Fabio Borini should have perhaps taken the offers available to him and left.

He was a bit-part player at best at Anfield last term, scoring only once – hence his likely rating drop. He’ll be on his way at some point before the season starts, with a number of English and European clubs interested.


24. Tiago Ilori – 74

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 73

Tiago Ilori is set to get his chance at Anfield in pre-season… Or at least that’s what his agent said recently.

Mind you, after a decent spell at Bordeaux last season and an excellent showing at the European Under-21 Championships, the Portuguese defender might just deserve it. A rating boost will come with it.


23. Jose Enrique – 75

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 77

Spanish defender Jose Enrique has struggled recently, and made only nine senior appearances in all competitions last season. 

That’s partly down to injury problems, but he’s far from first choice nowadays anyway. A drop is on the cards.


22. Rickie Lambert – 75

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 76

Rickie Lambert’s dream move to his boyhood club didn’t turn out too fruitful. Not in season one anyway – even with the injury problems the team endured up front.

With his advancing age and the loss of his place in the team, Lambert hasn’t been able to do much to improve his FUT rating. He’s treading the waters of a demotion to silver and a potential transfer out of Anfield.


21. Divock Origi – 76

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 75

Belgian forward Divock Origi was signed by Liverpool last summer, but spent the season on loan at Lille following his transfer. 

The 20-year-old scored nine goals over the course of the campaign and is ready to become a fully-fledged Red from this summer on. He’ll be a cheap and quick forward for beginners to get their hands on.


20. Lazar Markovic – 77

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 78

After arriving for £20m last summer, there was a little bit of pressure on Lazar Markovic to deliver at his new club.

The Serb failed to do so – though he was definitely not alone – but hope still remains that Markovic can come good. It’s rumoured in some quarters that he could be sold this summer, but after a difficult first season in England he’ll likely get another chance.


19. Kolo Toure – 77

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 78

Alright, who was surprised Liverpool extended Kolo Toure’s contract?

To fathom a guess, a lot of us were. Toure was quite shaky and prone to errors in an already wobbly back-line in the first half of last season (and that’s the reason for his likely drop), though he did get a little better as the campaign wore on. 

He’ll remain a back up player next season.


18. Danny Ings – 77

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 71

Danny Ings is one of Liverpool’s new recruits, having moved from relegated Burnley at the end of his contract. A 71 rating in last year’s game represented his potential, but Ings has proven he can score goals in the Premier League.

That proof is the reason why he’s earned his Anfield move, and the reason why he’s due a big rating increase.


17. Joe Allen – 78

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 77

Steady though unspectacular, Joe Allen featured regularly for Liverpool and Wales last season.

His performances were decent, and they should be enough to move him forward a mark or two. Allen is (kind of) famed for his passing ability and knack of keeping the ball.


16. Lucas Leiva – 78

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

There’s speculation surrounding the future of defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva at the moment, but there always seems to be. 

The Brazilian is no world beater but at times he’s crucial to how Liverpool play. Last season wasn’t his best though, hence a suspected rating drop.


15. Emre Can – 78

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 75 (Updated Card)

Emre Can looked like Liverpool’s best signing of last summer for an extended period of last season, and that should be enough to warrant a big increase in rating ahead of next year’s game.

Though that said, his form did tail off. But it’s expected for one so young.


14. Dejan Lovren – 78

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 80 (Updated card)

£20m signing Dejan Lovren had a nightmare-ish first season at Liverpool. He really failed to live up to his price tag and was a general uneasy presence in an already awkward back line.

There’s still time left for him to salvage things, but the Croatian’s rating simply has to take a hit next term.


13. Alberto Moreno – 78

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 78

Alberto Moreno has enough about him to prove a success at Liverpool. In an attacking sense, anyway.

The Spaniard is dynamic and pacey, but he needs to work on his defensive skills in order to become a genuine success in the long-term. He may have done just enough to salvage a slight bump in rating, though he’ll likely stand still on 78.


12. Mario Balotelli – 79

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 82

Mario Balotelli did absolutely nothing to repair his damaged reputation in England during his debut season at Anfield.

One goal in the Premier League all season is a horrid return, especially for a striker who cost £16m one year ago. He’s proven lazy once more and even Brendan Rodgers might feel that the Italian is a lost cause.

Whatever happens, he’s in for a ratings slash.


11. Nathaniel Clyne – 79

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 76 (Updated Card)

What a signing this could turn out to be, hey?

Liverpool have beaten Manchester United to the signing of Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne, and have found their new right back for the next five years. Clyne has proven an excellent player in both directions during his time at Southampton, and had a good season last year too.

So the England full back could be forgiven for expecting the FIFA Gods to be kind to him.


10. Adam Lallana – 80

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 80

From one former Southampton player to another: Adam Lallana’s debut season at Anfield was mediocre at best.

There’s no doubt Clyne will be hoping to make a bigger impact, but Lallana has a season under his belt at Liverpool now and will be hoping to get back to the player he was at his former club.

He did himself no harm last year, but didn’t move forward either. 


9. Simon Mignolet – 80

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 82

Simon Mignolet seems to have done enough to keep his place in the Liverpool goal for next season, but only just. By the skin of his teeth, some may say.

The Belgian proved erratic, unconvincing and poor too often last season – so much so that Brendan Rodgers dropped him for a number of games around Christmas. Mignolet won his place back, but he’s got a reputation to repair.

You can say the same for his status on FIFA 16, too.


8. James Milner – 80

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 78

Perhaps there’s an argument to say that James Milner’s a little underrated on FUT. His rating of 78 from last year doesn’t really reflect the quality of his play or his famed work-ethic.

He may get an increase from EA following his move to Liverpool, but it shouldn’t be too drastic. Milner is consistent and a good player to have around, but not quite a difference-maker. Not yet, anyway.


7. Martin Skrtel – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 82

Martin Skrtel didn’t have a terrible season last year compared to his team mates, but it was hardly anything special. He was a big part of a faltering back line and he failed to stand up and be counted enough.

Though with that said, he’s almost as good as Liverpool have in defence. His rating should take a small hit.


6. Mamadou Sakho – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 81

Mamadou Sakho, you feel, would flourish in a stronger back line. The trouble is, he’s a part of one that has its faults. 

The Frenchman though looked reliable last season himself, though it was a term blighted by injury. Don’t expect much of a change on Ultimate Team in this case.


5. Raheem Sterling – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 80

By the time you’re reading this, Raheem Sterling may not even be a Liverpool player any more. 

Manchester City want this contract rebel and if they pay the fee Liverpool want, he’ll move on. He didn’t have a great season last year, but Sterling is highly-rated and will likely come in for a slight increase in his FUT score – even though few would argue he deserves one.

Sterling has potential and that promise has been made into such a big deal this year.


4. Jordan Henderson – 82

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79 (Updated card)

Jordan Henderson stepped up to the plate last season. He’s now a regular England international and has truly made his mark on the Liverpool midfield. He’s due an increase in rating off the back of that.

He’ll likely come into line with the level that Steven Gerrard left off at (an 82 card). He’s one of the better central midfielders in the Premier League currently and a score of below 80 isn’t particularly fair, so he’ll creep above that marker.


3. Roberto Firmino – 82

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 81

Another big summer signing for Liverpool has been this fella. The biggest so far, you’d argue.

Roberto Firmino holds great promise; he can play in a number of positions, typically bags loads of assists and he can score goals too. His displays for Hoffenheim over the last two years and Brazil recently have made him one of the most promising youngsters in Europe.

He might need some time to adapt, but FIFA 16 will be kind to him.


2. Philippe Coutinho – 83

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 81

Coutinho and Firmino could turn out to be one deadly combination. They’re familiar with each other from the international set up and their styles should mix rather well. But Coutinho has made his own name for himself since joining Liverpool.

He scored some wonderful goals last term and was arguably the club’s best player over the course of the campaign. That will likely be represented in a bump up in rating, on par with Liverpool’s other main man…


1. Daniel Sturridge – 83

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 83

Daniel Sturridge spent a huge chunk of last season out injured. It’s a shame from a Liverpool point of view, because the striker is the goal-getter they crave. 

In his brief spells in the team last year, Sturridge managed to find the net more frequently than a host of the club’s other forwards. Liverpool need him back quickly.

Speaking from an Ultimate Team point of view, Sturridge likely won’t warrant a cut in rating because he simply hasn’t been there to deserve one. There’s a sense that once he gets fit, Liverpool will fire – so it’s sensible to keep ‘Studge’ where he is.
