EA has dropped the latest FIFA 22 squad update and yet again it's the same team that gets slammed every single time... Manchester United.

The Red Devils will not be playing Champions League football next season after a run of dreadful performances in the Premier League and it shows in the latest ratings update.

France World Cup winner Paul Pogba has had his fair share of criticism since returning to Manchester in 2016 but none more so than towards his work rate on the pitch.

Pogba's quality is on show for all to see nearly every time he steps onto the field, but his desire and commitment are in question for so many football fans.

In what will likely be his last season in a Red Devils shirt, the midfielder has once again had his work rate called into question by EA.

EA has altered BOTH of the Frenchman's work rates in the latest squad update.

Pogba's attacking work rate has been brought down from High to Medium, whilst his defensive work rate has been reduced from Medium to Low.

This just about sums up the view of most football fans and echoes the thoughts that he cannot be relied upon in the United midfield.

Egregious Englishmen

Man United's two former England stars Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire have been the focus of much of the abuse directed at the players in recent months.

EA has downgraded BOTH players by a -1 OVR with some heavy downgrades across their in-game stats.

Marcus Rashford, who is now an 82 OVR in-game, has been absolutely hammered in the latest update, with the largest downgrades coming to his ball control, composure, aggression, dribbling and reactions.

However, the most damning update for Rashford is the removal of the 'Team Player' trait, along with his attacking work rate dropping from High to Medium.

Harry Maguire is in a similar boat to his former England teammate and is now down to 81 OVR in FIFA 22 following the latest squad update.

The Manchester United skipper's sliding tackle has been downgraded from 78 to 76.

Downward spiral

Unfortunately, the downgrades don't stop there for Man United players.

Despite a promising few weeks in a United shirt Jadon Sancho has been poor of late and it hasn't gone unnoticed with EA.

The winger's finishing has gone from 81 to 79 and shot power from 73 to 71, whilst his ball control and strength have also been downgraded.

Edinson Cavani is another Red Devil to see his OVR downgraded by a -1 and is now rated as an 82 OVR.

Similarly, Brazilian left-back Alex Telles has been dropped to an 80 OVR card in FIFA 22, with huge downgrades coming to his defensive stats.

Other Man Utd Updates:

  • Raphael Varane (Potential -1)
  • Bruno Fernandes (Short Passing -1, Composure -3, Penalties -1, Agility +1, Aggression +2)
  • Jesse Lingard (OVR -1 with stats downgraded across the board)
