With just over a month to go before the latest edition of the most popular recurring football game hits the shelves in the UK, makers EA Sports have piqued fans’ interest by giving us a peak behind the curtain at what we can expect.
Several images and graphic purporting to be from FIFA 17 have been doing the rounds on social media throughout Tuesday afternoon, and show how Jose Mourinho’s star-studded squad shape-up in the virtual world:

By-in-large, it looks to us like EA have actually done a pretty good job, but there’s definitely one or two players likely to be a tad upset by their rating.
Rashford at 76 overall? And Lingard given the same number as Ashley Young? Seems a little bit harsh.
Moreover, one of the biggest climbers in United’s squad appears to be David de Gea, with the Spaniard marked up to 91 overall, and put in the echelon of the game’s top players.
What do you make of the ratings?
