Romelu Lukaku's FIFA 20 Team of the Season So Far card has caused a lot of controversy as it may have 'fake stats'.
Lukaku has been given a card as part of Serie A's side after an impressive debut season with Inter Milan.
However, the 95 rated card has been accused of having fake stats following a comparison with Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The Serbian was also given a special card by EA Sports and has a lower average physicality stat, despite having the higher individual stats.
@BrokerFUT posted the comparison image which shows Lukaku has 97 physicality to Milinkovic-Savic's 96, but the Belgian only has 81 jumping, 86 stamina, and 81 aggression, while Milinkovic-Savic has 97, 97, and 83 in the same attributes.
YouTuber MattHDGamer has also weighed in on the debate by offering an in-depth calculation of the stats.
From 1:18 in the video below, Matt uses a calculator to work out the average of both cards stats and one man is way clear of the other.
Milinkovic-Savic's stats are all added together for a sum of 376 before being divided by four, which gives a 94 rating.
While that isn't too far from the 25-year-old's actual physicality rating, it's a totally different story for Lukaku.
His stats equal 347 and when divided by four gives an average of 86.75 meaning it's a whopping 11 ratings lower than the one on his card.
Fans on Reddit have quickly commented on the theory and think it proves Ultimate Team need to change how they rate players.
One comment stated: "This is actually disgraceful and amounts to false advertising. This isn't a small miscalculation, this is fabrication of card stats."
While a second added: "How are we on FIFA 20 and people still believe card stats? They make 0 sense."
It's brought the way EA currently work out their in-form cards back into the limelight with many fans disagreeing with the method.
I want a FIFA where a 95 TOTS Lukaku can actually be useable.
Players should be useable no matter what when they are that high rated but the stupid mechanics and meta just doesn't allow it.

Per Dextero, the method involves multiplying the base card's in-game stats with the TOTS stats on the card, divided by the non-inform face stat.
What do you think of the way EA work out their Team of the Season cards?
