EA Leaks FIFA 23 Ratings Of Chelsea FC

EA deep dives into the new gameplay of FIFA 23. But while they're at it, they also reveal the ratings of Chelsea players. Are these really the final overall ratings for the new FIFA? We have our doubts...

Apparently, none other than EA Sports itself leaked the first FIFA 23 ratings. Chelsea FC is the first club for which we have found first indications of the FIFA 23 ratings. After the Blues played a rather disappointing season, the ratings dropped a bit. You will soon find out why we have our doubts that these are really the final ratings.

Chelsea FC Ratings In FIFA 23

In the official FIFA 23 gameplay pitch notes, EA Sports has included a screenshot introducing the new acceleration types. The example shows Chelsea's Christian Pulisic, who has "Explosive Acceleration", so he gains speed particularly quick. However, not only the rating of the American is shown, but also the OVRs of all other Chelsea players in the starting line-up and on the bench.

However, this screenshot obviously comes from a beta or demo version of FIFA 23. It is not the final version of the new game, and therefore, these ratings are not final either. Still, they give us strong indications as to where the Blues' ratings are headed. It would be a weird move if EA really used these ratings for the official and final FIFA 23 ratings. After all, they not only spoil the Chelsea squad, but also stars that will appear in the top 100 players in FIFA 23.

Besides the ratings, we also show you who could get an OTW card and who will get the highest upgrades and downgrades.

Chelsea Transfers – OTWs

After winning the Champions League, Chelsea was actually on the right track to attack England's elite (Manchester City & Liverpool FC). But they couldn't keep up with them and there were also a lot of troubles off the pitch regarding their former investor and owner Roman Abramovich. Coach Thomas Tuchel meanwhile let his superstar Romelu Lukaku move back to Inter Milan, which was a bad transfer for Chelsea. Here are the most important new signings:

  • Raheem Sterling (LM) | FIFA 23 Rating: 88 OVR
  • Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) | FIFA 23 Rating: 86 OVR

Koulibaly needs to replace one of the two free transfer center-backs Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid) and Andreas Christensen (FC Barcelona). It can be assumed that Tuchel would like to have another CB. He didn't get Jules Koundé. The former Sevilla player has also joined Barca. Sterling enriches the breadth of the offensive, but the Blues do not (yet) have a real striker.

Of course, N'Golo Kanté's rating is the first thing that catches our eye. The Frenchman is one of those players who make the absolute difference in defensive midfield – on the pitch as well as in FIFA. Him dropping to 89 isn't very nice, but we're pretty sure he'll be a meta monster in FIFA 23 as well. The downgrades for Timo Werner and Kai Havertz don't surprise us (unfortunately). Edouard Mendy is deservedly joining the ranks of world-class keeper. Reece James also gets his long overdue upgrade.

As we mentioned before, EA should, could, well... needs to change something for the final Chelsea ratings – or maybe they'll just leave it like that.
