Top 10 Liverpool players on FIFA…
Passing football fans will often look to video game series FIFA as a basis for their knowledge of players and their ability. But it’s always curious to see how genuine supporters will react to their respective star’s ratings.
Here are the top ten Liverpool players, according to FIFA:
10) Dejan Lovren – 79
The £20m summer signing from Southampton was impressive last season, and it is no real surprise to see him ahead of the likes of Kolo Toure and Glen Johnson.
9) Adam Lallana – 79
Another big-money signing from Southampton, and the £25m man is surprisingly rated higher than the Reds’ vice captain Jordan Henderson, although he is level with holding player Lucas Leiva.
8) Raheem Sterling – 80
Liverpool’s standout player so far this season surely warrants a higher rating, or at least deserves to be ranked ahead of some of the players currently above him.
7) Mamadou Sakho – 81
The Frenchman has struggled to settle in the Premier League, and is rating is surprisingly high considering his indifferent form last season.
6) Martin Skrtel – 81
Liverpool’s most consistent and reliable defender, his rating his probably about right based on last season’s performances, where he was regularly the standout player in an otherwise shaky back four.
