Aymeric Laporte Had The Perfect Response To His FIFA 21 Rating
Thursday evening saw the top 100 ratings from this year's game drop and Manchester City defender Laporte clocked in as an 87-rated card.
However, the Frenchman has seen his pace drop from 64 in FIFA 20 to 63 in this year's iteration.
Laporte took to Twitter and let fans know he isn't too thrilled with his rating decrease.

Laporte also expressed his frustration on Instagram and commented: "I run faster than that but ok."

Interestingly, the former Borussia Dortmund man's stats are up one for shooting, dribbling and defending, while his pace has dropped one.
The move in his overall means the 31-year-old doesn't make the top 10 highest rated players in the Premier League.
PFA Player of the Year winner Kevin De Bruyne leads the way as a 91-rated, ahead of Liverpool foursome Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Alisson, who are all 90-rated.
Sergio Aguero is the only player from England's top tier rated an 89 then Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Ederson and N'Golo Kante on 88-rated make up the top 10.
