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 Man City 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


Manchester City won the Premier League title once again but wasn't able to get their hands on the Champions League.

Another top campaign and a massive summer signing mean that City will have a brilliant squad in FIFA 23, and we predict their three highest-rated stars will be:

Kevin De Bruyne (OVR 91)

Kevin De Bruyne enjoyed another prolific season and will once again be Man City's highest-rated player with a 91 OVR, although it could increase to 92 OVR.

If he does get a little boost he could also become the highest-rated Premier League player, although Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo will offer competition on that front.

Ederson (OVR 89)

The Brazilian has come in for some stick this season, but Ederson is still 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 Alisson.


Erling Haaland (OVR 88)

ATTACKING THREAT - Haaland's arrival will see City play with a proper striker again

The biggest transfer of the summer, Erling Haaland will be hoping to keep up his phenomenal goalscoring record at his new club.


Despite missing parts of last season due to injury, Haaland still managed more than one goal involvement a game, playing 29, scoring 27 and assisting five.

We could even see his rating increase to a whopping 89 OVR!


The big business has already happened at City, with Haaland looking a steal at £55 million!

Julian Alvarez will also join up with the side, and there could be a few more players on the way if the transfer rumours prove correct.

BIG FUTURE - Can this young Argentine follow in the footsteps of a certain fellow countryman?

Brighton's Marc Cucurella and Leeds' Kalvin Phillips are apparently on Pep's wishlist, with an additional defender or two potentially needed after Fernandinho's departure and the possibility that Oleksandr Zinchenko will leave too.

New Signings:

  • Erling Haaland (OVR 88)
  • Julian Alvarez (OVR 78)


  • Fernandinho (OVR 81)
  • Pedro Porro (OVR 80)

We've talked about the possibility that De Bruyne and Haaland could get upgraded, but we're certain that three of City's Portuguese collective will get a boost in FIFA 23.

Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva all enjoyed a top campaign, and look like making City's squad even stronger than it already is.

CANCELO CULTURE - Cancelo has revolutionised the way a full-back plays

Rodri has also been exceptional for the side and will likely gain an upgrade as well.

Notable Upgrades:

  • Ruben Dias (87 OVR → 88 OVR)
  • Joao Cancelo (86 OVR → 88 OVR)
  • Bernardo Silva (86 OVR → 87 OVR)
  • Rodri (86 OVR → 87 OVR)


Again, we've said that Ederson could see a slight downgrade, and another man on that list is Raheem Sterling.

STERLING SHAFTED - Do you think Sterling deserves to be downgraded?

It seems harsh as he was the team's second-top scorer and provided the fourth most assists, but it could be argued you need to do more to maintain an 88 OVR rating.

Notable Downgrades:

  • Raheem Sterling (88 OVR → 87 OVR)
