FIFA 20 Winter Refresh Predictions: Premier League – Traore, Grealish & more

January marks the half way point in the season, so which players have earned a rating boost?



The Premier League run-in is on the horizon, with just a third of the campaign to go.

That said, we mustn’t forget what has already gone on this term, with some players absolutely flying this season.

On FIFA 20’s Ultimate Team, the top performers and over-achievers will receive a Ratings Refresh, with a load of worth players earning boosts to their overall ratings.

Keep reading, as RealSport predicts five players from the Premier League who could be set for an increase.

Jamie Vardy (OVR 82 → 85)

The number one man on our list is none other than English centre forward Jamie Vardy – it’s fair to say the Leicester striker is well and truly having a party this season, as he leads the race for the golden boot with a massive return of 17 goals in 19 Premier League appearances.

Frankly, it’s hard to believe that Vardy’s FUT card was given an 82 overall rating in this year’s game – surely he’s done enough to earn a well-deserved boost. The striker has already received an 84 rated in-form card and an 86 rated POTM card, so a boost to 85 (including boosts to his attacking prowess) only seems fair.

Adama Traore (OVR 74 → 80)

Adama Traore has proven a devastating force for Wolves this season, contributing four goals and four assists in 20 Premier League appearances, helping his side reach seventh spot by 2020.

The Spaniard has made a name for himself utilising his immense speed and strength to beat players, most recently completing a record breaking 15 take-ons in Wolves clash against Watford.

Jack Grealish (OVR 77 – 80)

Aston Villa haven’t fared too well since being promoted to the Premier League this season, sitting one point above relegation. However, things could be far worse if it wasn’t for Jack Grealish.

The English midfielder has contributed seven goals and five assists in 23 league appearances and has been Villa’s stand-out player.

Daniel James (OVR 72 → 78)

Daniel James came to Man United as a relatively unknown name – it’s fair to say he’s exceeded expectations, scoring three times and providing six assists in the Premier League this season.
