FIFA 23 will be released soon, and it won't be long until we get our first look at some of the brand-new ratings for each team.

Check below to see our predictions for how Liverpool could look in this year's game, with the ratings being used throughout the Ultimate Team season and at the start of Career Mode.

Top Players

Liverpool couldn't complete their historic quadruple, missing out on the two big trophies in the Premier League and Champions League.

Nevertheless, it was another brilliant campaign with lots of their players likely to get upgrades in FIFA 23, and we predict their three highest-rated stars will be:

Mohamed Salah (OVR 91)

KING MO - Salah was outstanding for the majority of the season and should be upgraded

Mohamed Salah received a rather strange downgrade at the start of FIFA 22, however, we expect this to be rectified in FIFA 23 with at least a 91 OVR handed to him.

That could even rise to a 92 OVR, which we think would make him the outright best-rated player in the Premier League.

He was the joint-winner of the Golden Boot and finished as Liverpool's top scorer and provided the most assists.

Virgil van Dijk (OVR 89)

The Dutch defender hasn't been as imperious as in previous seasons, and although Virgil van Dijk has seen his rating increase to a 90 OVR in updates, we think he will start FIFA 23 as he did 22, as an 89 OVR.

He will still be one of the best-rated defenders in the game, bullying attackers and dominating ariel duels.

Alisson (OVR 89)

Alisson is one of the best goalkeepers around and we don't see him losing his 89 OVR.

He shared the Premier League Golden Glove last season with his national teammate and club rival Ederson.

Transfers

Sadio Mane leaving the side is possibly the biggest transfer news for Liverpool, although the signing of Darwin Nunez for a reported £85 million will excite fans.

They've added a couple of young prospects in Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay, and there could be a more high-profile youngster on the way if the transfer rumours prove correct.

THEORY OF EVOLUTION - Can Darwin Nunez replace Mane in Liverpool's forward line?

Jude Bellingham is apparently on their wishlist, however, with the club already breaking their transfer record with Nunez, we're not sure if the Englishman will join this window.

New Signings:

  • Darwin Nunez (OVR 79)
  • Fabio Carvalho (OVR 73)
  • Calvin Ramsay (OVR 63)

Departures:

  • Sadio Mane (OVR 89)
  • Marko Grujic (OVR 76)

Rumours:

  • Jude Bellingham (OVR 82)

Upgrades

We've already mentioned that Salah should get an upgrade, and there are a few others that will surely join him in getting a boost in FIFA 23.

Fabinho and Joel Matip look likely to gain a little boost after strong performances from both of them this season.

TAKING OVER - Diogo Jota is putting in performances that make it hard to leave him on the bench

However, there could be massive increases on the way for Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, with both of them excelling in Liverpool's forward line, showing they should be regular starters instead of backups to the usual front three.

Notable Upgrades:

  • Fabinho (86 OVR → 87 OVR)
  • Diogo Jota (82 OVR → 85 OVR)
  • Luis Diaz (80 OVR → 84 OVR)
  • Joel Matip (83 OVR → 84 OVR)
  • Ibrahima Konate (78 OVR → 80 OVR)
  • Konstantinos Tsimikas (74 OVR → 77 OVR)

Downgrades

We don't see many downgrades coming for this Liverpool side, with the only one we really see coming for Joe Gomez, and that is more down to a lack of game time.

ORDINARY JOE - Gomez will likely see his rating slip down in FIFA 23

We could see Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hit in the ratings too, although we think that would be especially harsh on Hendo and Milner.

Notable Downgrades:

  • Joe Gomez (82 OVR → 81 OVR)
