As usual, EA are slowly rolling out the FIFA player ratings to generate maximum hype. However, at this stage, we seem to have the entire senior squad – bar any late transfer window incomings.

Without further ado, here are those Arsenal player ratings for FIFA 21 so far:

The overall rating change comes to +14 for Arsenal players, though the vast majority of that comes from the young players. Without the u21s you’re looking at a very negative rating change.

There are a few that stand out in a bad way. Despite ranking as Arsenal’s top performer, Aubameyang is still very underrated at just 87. Tierney should be hitting at least 80 and Xhaka getting a downgrade seems harsh given his performances in 2020.

Gabriel also looks like more than a 78-rated player on the pitch, but perhaps we just have to be patient with him and Tierney given they were so low-rated last season.
