Man City’s Erling Haaland gets big FIFA 23 upgrade after incredible start to season

Published

on

After his fantastic start to life at Manchester City, Erling Haaland has been given an upgrade on FIFA 23.

Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm since his arrival at Man City, with the Norwegian striker having netted 17 goals and grabbed three assists in just 11 league games. He’s also impressed in the Champions League, scoring five goals in four games, taking his total for the season to 21 already.

At his current rate, Haaland is on course to smash the Premier League goalscoring record, currently held by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah who notched 32 in the 2017/18 season. And, due to his incredible start to the season, EA Sports have given the Norwegian a big upgrade in FIFA 23.

The latest FIFA 23 squad update was released on October 28, 2022, with the squad update available to download now on all platforms including PC, Xbox and PlayStation. Haaland wasn’t the only player to receive changes to his FIFA 23 card, with 15 other City stars being updated.

After taking the world by storm in just his first few months at City, Haaland has seen his FIFA 23 overall rating increase, jumping from 88 to 89 overall. With his new rating, only a handful of players are rated higher than the 22-year-old including Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, but it’s expected that the striker could drop in the coming weeks, as well as Haaland potentially upgrading again.

Now 89 rated, Haaland is the joint-fourth best striker in the world according to FIFA 23. Tottenham’s Harry Kane is also 89 rated, whilst Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski and Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe are all rated higher.

As well as his overall rating increasing, Haaland’s reactions and positioning were also upgraded. His instinctive movement inside the box has helped the striker score plenty of his goals this season, so upgrades to these stats are warranted. His reactions increased from 88 to 89 in-game, but 20 players are better than him in that stat. His positioning jumped from 89 to 91 though, with only six players higher in that department.

Haaland could have easily received more and bigger upgrades to his FIFA 23 stats, but with no sign of the striker slowing down, it’s understandable that EA may want to hold back on giving him major upgrades all at once.
