Romelu Lukaku don’t need no stinkin’ FIFA 17 rating upgrade

The Everton striker calls out EA for not giving him some love.

EA Sports have begun their rollout of FIFA 17 winter upgrades and downgrades, beginning with the Premier League. While over 60 players saw their ratings adjust, one star striker didn’t and he’s not about to ignore it.

Everton’s Romelu Lukaku has been in arguably the best form of his life this season. He’s earned three in-form cards already from EA (not including his Screamer Halloween card) and continues to fill the net for the Toffees on a consistent basis. However, his name is noticeably absent from the full list of affected players in this “Ratings Refresh” that EA have released and he’s not too pleased about it.

At least he’s keeping his sights set on improving in real life, but the passive-aggressiveness is strong in this one. You can tell he’s a little hurt as he even throws a little shade at them with a Pro Evo hashtag on the end. After-all, he is second in the Premier League in goals scored this season with 16. It’s a little weird that he didn’t get a boost even though his 84-rated base card is already quite good.
