Liverpool's Premier League woes go on. Jurgen Klopp's team has lost three of their last four league matches, conceding three goals on each occasion.
The Reds now sit in tenth position in the PL table, twenty-one points adrift of the league leaders, Arsenal.
Liverpool fans can't catch a break at the moment, with the latest FIFA 23 squad update hitting their beloved club harder than any other.
As many as four first-team players have been downgraded in the latest update, including their star man Mohamed Salah.
EA has hit Mo Salah the hardest in the latest squad update, with his overall rating downgraded from 90 to 89 OVR.
The Egyptian winger has fallen well below his lofty standards this season, having registered just seven goals and three assists in the league.
Salah's FIFA 23 card has been downgraded across the board, including a hit to the 30-year-old's finishing, composure, shot power and positioning.
The following changes have been made to Salah's in-game stats:
- Finishing 93 -> 92
- Volleys 84 -> 83
- Dribbling 89 -> 88
- Ball Control 88 -> 86
- Sprint Speed 90 -> 89
- Reactions 93 -> 92
- Shot Power 83 -> 82
- Strength 75 -> 76
- Long Shots 85 -> 84
- Positioning 92 -> 91
- Vision 85 -> 84
- Composure 92 -> 90
It seems harsh to downgrade the Liverpool goalkeeper as he has been at fault on very few occasions this season.
In fact, without Alisson's incredible 1v1 stops, Liverpool could be in a far worse position in the league.
EA has downgraded just one of the Brazilian's in-game stats.
- Composure 68 -> 66
Like Alisson, fellow Brazil international Fabinho has only had one in-game attribute altered this time around.
However, it's a pretty significant change to a key FIFA 23 stat. EA has slashed Fabinho's acceleration by six, yes SIX points.
The 29-year-old defensive midfielder does seem to have lost a yard of pace since returning from injury, but a minus-six seems a little dramatic.
- Acceleration 60 -> 54
Liverpool's £35 million January singing Cody Gakpo has failed to hit the ground running at Anfield since arriving from PSV.
The 23-year-old is still yet to score in a Reds shirt and has looked less than half the player we saw for the Netherlands at the 2022 World Cup.
The Dutch winger has looked somewhat clunky on the ball so far for Liverpool, leading to a downgrade in agility.
- Agility 81 -> 80
