FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Ratings Refresh: Salah, Kane and De Bruyne all Get a Stats Boost

EA has revealed its first set of spring upgrades for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, and exactly as GR predicted there are ratings increases for Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah, and Kevin de Bruyne. The big winners, however, are the unlikely pair of Burnley’s Nick Pope and WBA’s Ahmed Hegazi.

60 Premier League players in total have been granted an attributes boost, including super-meta Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, and Kyle Walker of Manchester City. Yet Pope and Hegazi are the only two to have their overall ratings increased by seven points. Both leap from 68 to 75, and switch from silver to gold cards in the process.

The upgrades to Kane, Salah and de Bruyne are less pronounced, but will still make a big difference for elite players. Kane jumps two points from 86 to 88; likewise, Salah is up two, from 83 to 85; and de Bruyne – you’ve guess it – also earns a couple more on his overall, leaping from 89 to 91.

All Premier League players are already in packs. Unlike last year, no players will be downgraded as part of the ratings refresh, which is expected to continue for the next fortnight. We’ll have ongoing coverage on GamesRadar+, with a round-up feature heading your way once the full set of refreshed ratings is complete.
