Four Liverpool players have made the cut, including Mohamed Salah (OVR 89), Virgil Van Dijk (OVR 89), Sadio Mane (OVR 89) and Alisson (OVR 89).

Some controversy has surrounded the ratings of the Liverpool players especially, with the seemingly unwarranted downgrading of Salah in particular.

DISRESPECTED - Salah deserves to be rated amongst the very best in the world

Mohamed Salah has shockingly been downgraded from a 90 OVR to an 89 OVR as we head into FIFA 22!

The Liverpool winger's pace has been reduced from 93 to 90, whilst his shooting has been given a slight +1 boost to 87.

Salah doesn't seem to have lost a yard of pace, so this one seems very strange.

Sadio Mane (OVR 89)

LUCKY BOY - Mane is lucky to keep his 89 OVR

There doesn't seem to be any consistency with EA's ratings, as Salah's partner in crime, Sadio Mane, scored just 16 goals whilst providing 9 assists last season, and has been given the same 89 OVR as Salah.

Of course, the quality of player is not all down to statistics, but Mane's level has clearly dropped below Salah over the past 18 months.

So, Mane should be rated lower than Salah in FIFA 22.

Virgil Van Dijk (OVR 89)

WORLD CLASS - Van Dijk is one of the best defenders in world football

Virgil Van Dijk has been downgraded from 90 OVR to 89 OVR this year, following a lengthy injury that he sustained last season.

It seems pretty harsh of EA to downgrade big Virg, considering he has barely put a foot wrong in the past few years.

However, we understand EA's reasoning behind this, as we don't know if he'll bounce back from his ACL injury yet.

Alisson (OVR 89)

GOALSCORING GK - Alisson's header will go down in history

Liverpool 'keeper Alisson is the fourth player in this list to be downgraded by -1 to an 89 OVR.

This may be as a result of the Reds' poor defensive record last season due to the countless injuries they suffered at centre back, but we think an 89 OVR for Alisson is fair.

Still, being one of the best goalkeepers in the world, we think the Brazilian can bounce back and reclaim his 90 OVR for FIFA 23.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (OVR 87)

KOP KING - Don't worry about being cautious when crossing with Trent

Maintaining his high rating, the young English RB will be a Career Mode target when the game comes out.

Not the paciest around, but his passing more than makes up for that.

Expect to whip in killer crosses for fun, much like he does in real life.

Andrew Robertson (OVR 87)

FLYING SCOTSMAN - A threat along the left wing

Joining his partner in crime with the same rating, Andrew Robertson will be up and down the wing like nobody's business.

Injury has slowed him down at the start of this season, but expect to see him back at his consistent best in a few weeks.
