Liverpool on FIFA 13

As I am sure pretty much all of you are aware, FIFA 13 has just been released, prompting you to want to sell your computer games to get involved with the action. Here will be a slightly more detailed look into the Liverpool team on this year’s instalment of the much loved game, and a complete list of Liverpool’s FIFA 13 player ratings at the bottom.

To start, it is good to see Luis Suarez’s class awarded with a very high 86 overall, as I believe on his day he truly is one of the best strikers in the world, and at only 25 still has a lot to learn too, which is why he has a huge potential ability of 89 overall.

High ratings for Pepe Reina and Daniel Agger also bode well, as alongside Suarez and Gerrard, they form a quality spine for the Liverpool team to build around, with player ratings of 84 and 83 respectively, however can expect to grow much higher due to potential ability on Manager mode.

A few players however I feel have been rated a bit harshly. For example Steven Gerrard’s rating has dropped to 83, and for a player who was England’s top performer at Euro 2012 and took on his role as England captain incredibly well, should not have gone down in the ratings, especially as he has proved so far in the 2012/2013 season he is still one of the best midfielders in the world.

I also feel Lucas Leiva and Jose Enrique’s overall ratings should be a bit higher too. Despite Lucas being injured for a large portion of last season’s campaign, before that he was quickly becoming a laughing stock to one of Liverpool’s best and most consistent players, filling the void allowing Gerrard to go forward perfectly. As for Enrique, he has adapted to life at Liverpool very well since joining, and despite not playing as much so far in the 2012/2013 season, last season he was consistent and reliable for Liverpool.

It is good to see players such as Borini, Shelvey, Yesil, Pacheco, Allen, Coates, Sterling, Suso, Flanagan, Robinson and Wisdom in there too, as despite none of them except Allen, Borini, possibly Shelvey have very high rankings, they do have a lot of potential, when playing career mode. For example Shelvey – 82, Pacheco – 83, Yesil – 83, Allen – 83, Sterling – 84, Borini – 84 etc, so it is good to see that out younger player’s talents and abilities are being put through into the game too. It is great to see them grow in career mode, and gives you a sort of virtual insight to how good Liverpool’s team may be in a few years time!
