Premier League Ratings Refresh Predictions

This year, for our Premier League Ratings Refresh, expect a heavy Liverpool and Leicester presence, as well as a few nice upgrades for some of Chelsea’s youngsters breaking through into their Champions League-chasing first team!

Sadio Mane - 88 > 89 (+1)

With Mane being the spearhead of Liverpool’s deadly attack this season with 11 goals and 8 assists in the league, expect him to move closer to Salah’s rating.

Heung Min Son - 87 > 88 (+1)

I think Son may be due for an upgrade this year, being an integral part of Spurs’ front line with 5 goals and 9 assists.

Roberto Firmino - 86 > 88 (+2)

While he may not get as many goals as Salah and Mane, Firmino is one of the best number 9’s in world football at the moment and deserves a good upgrade to show for it.


Andrew Robertson - 85 > 86 (+1)

With a TOTY on the horizon for Robertson, he surely deserves an upgrade to at least an 86.

Georginio Wijnaldum - 84 > 85 (+1)

A vital part of the Liverpool midfield, Gini is more than deserving of an 85 rated card this year in FUT.

Trent Alexander-Arnold - 83 > 85 (+2)

Another likely TOTY inclusion, Trent is possibly the best right back in world football, and deserves a decent upgrade to highlight that.

Ricardo Pereira - 82 > 84 (+2)

Leicester have been nothing short of incredible this season, with Ricardo Pereira being a standout, and currently rated 5th in WhoScored’s players of the season.

Marcus Rashford - 83 > 84 (+1)

Now Man United’s main man up top, Rashford has delivered, racking up 12 goals, 4 assists and 5 man of the match awards for the Red Devils so far this season.

Jamie Vardy - 82 > 84 (+2)

The top scorer in the league currently, with 17 goals. I’d say Vardy is a 100% guarantee for an upgrade this winter.


Wilfred Ndidi - 81 > 83 (+2)

Another standout performer for Leicester this season, and quickly establishing himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the league.

Youri Tielemans - 80 > 82 (+2)

Good to see the young Belgian flourishing in the Premier League. I can see him getting a small upgrade to highlight his development.

Raul Jimenez - 80 > 82 (+2)

With Wolves flying high in their bid for European football, I can definitely see Jimenez receiving an upgrade.

Ben Chilwell - 79 > 82 (+3)

Part of a solid Leicester defence this season. I can see him getting at least a +2 to take him into the low 80’s.

James Maddison - 79 > 82 (+3)

With 6 goals and 3 assists so far this season, and rated as the 6th best player according to WhoScored, Maddison should be receiving a nice upgrade.

Ben Foster - 80 > 82 (+2)

Ben Foster is still performing at a top Premier League standard, with a number of potential In-Form worthy performances this season.

Matt Doherty - 78 > 80 (+2)

Already with 2 In-Forms this season, Matt Doherty should be due an upgrade to around an 80 rated card.

Tammy Abraham - 76 > 80 (+4)


Finally getting the gametime he deserves for Chelsea, Tammy has netted 12 goals so far this season, and should see a big upgrade to reflect them.

Caglar Soyuncu - 74 > 80 (+6)

What a season of progression this man has had, being a part of a solid Leicester defence. I’d expect a big upgrade for him in the coming weeks.

Mason Mount - 75 > 79 (+4)

Another solid story of progression in Chelsea’s first team. I’d expect a +4 upgrade for Mason Mount this year.

Adama Traore - 74 > 79 (+5)

Adama has been a powerhouse so far for Wolves this season, and with 2 In-Forms already, I’d expect a big upgrade to around a 79.

Jack Grealish - 77 > 79 (+2) 

Another solid performer so far this season, bagging 6 goals and 5 assists for Aston Villa, getting him into the WhoScored top 10 players so far this season.

Fikayo Tomori - 72 > 77 (+5) 

Another breakout star in the young Chelsea team this season. I’d expect Fikayo Tomori to make a big jump to a gold card this winter.

Daniel James - 72 > 76 (+4)

Dan James should be set for an upgrade this Winter I’d say, having established himself in the Man United first team, and bagging 3 goals and 6 assists.
