Crystal Palace star player WILFRIED Zaha has hit back at EA Sports after receiving a downgrade in his FIFA 23 rating.
Zaha has played for Crystal Palace since he was 12 and originally played for the youth team before being promoted in 2010.
While joining Manchester United in 2013, he was loaned to Palace for two of the three years he was there, returning full-time to Palace in 2015.
Zaha is currently the highest rated player at Crystal Palace, with a rating of 82 he sits three points ahead of second best player, Vincente Guaita.
In last year’s FIFA 22, Zaha also started the season at 82, but received special higher-scoring cards like his Team of the Week card.
This special edition gold card gave Zaha an 84 rating.
His highest rating ever was 86, which was also awarded to him via Team of the Week in FIFA 21.
Zaha has had a fantastic season so far this year, scoring four goals in the five Premier League games he has played.
However, that improvement didn’t translate into his FIFA 23 rating.
The player posted a shocked photo of himself on Instagram after receiving a yellow card.
He wrote: “When I saw my FIFA stats going down. Must have played golf all season then.”
His stats have improved overall from his FIFA 22 base map.
Zaha only lost a point in dribbling but picked up points elsewhere.
Here are the two stats for comparison:
- Pace – FIFA 22 – 89 / FIFA 23 – 91
- Dribbling FIFA 22 – 87 / FIFA 23 – 86
- Shooting – FIFA 22 – 77 / FIFA 23 – 79
- Pass – FIFA 22 – 73 / FIFA 23 – 73
- Physical – FIFA 22 – 75 / FIFA 23 – 76
- Defend – FIFA 22 – 34 / FIFA 23 – 37
However, Zaha has a point.
Despite the small increases, the new ratings don’t reflect how much better he’s done this season.
