FIFA 23: Erling Haaland & Jack Grealish play 'Higher or Lower' with Man City ratings

Erling Haaland FIFA 23 Rating Reaction

Erling Haaland has been in quite simply ludicrous form since joining Manchester City in the summer, looking set to obliterate any goalscoring records in his path this season.

Many will be surprised to know that despite his formidable campaign with Borussia Dortmund last season and then his start this term, EA Sports have decided to not grant him with an upgrade on FIFA 23. The Norwegian will start the game with a base rating of 88 once again, although that will look silly come the end of the season.

The new game is just over a week away, with partners of EA Sports releasing their own promotional content, including Premier League clubs with their players as the hype builds over a new game.

Erling Haaland plays higher or lower

FIFA content creator who goes by the name, FG, was presented with the opportunity to host the game show for Man City’s YouTube channel as a fan of the club himself.

He kicks off with Erling Haaland and Nathan Ake going toe-to-toe against Jack Grealish and Cole Palmer, with the opening round being pace.

Palmer predicted he would have 72 pace, with Haaland grinning as he predicts it will be lower. The big Norwegian is human after all as he was incorrect, with the young English forward boasting 76 pace on the new title.

Erling Haaland threatens to leave

Obviously, there’s a lot of discrepancies when it comes to FIFA ratings, even from the professionals themselves, Haaland clearly holds pride in his stats, especially physical.

FG asked the players, will Haaland’s physical rating of 87 be higher or lower than that of teammate, Rodri. Before the decision could be made, Haaland threatened to leave if it was higher, saying: “If it’s higher, I will leave.”

Thankfully, Rodri has been given 84 physical, so the new hero of Manchester remained in the video, however, his reaction to Ruben Dias getting 88 physical, beating his own was hilarious.

One of the best things about the release of a new FIFA is the content released in the build-up to the release date, with the videos from your favourite clubs even better, however, clips like this are incredibly entertaining, even for those of us that aren’t Manchester City fans. You’ll get to learn some stats about players on the new edition of the game too if you tune in.
