10 players you won't believe are rated higher than Cole Palmer on EA FC 24

10 players you won't believe are rated higher than Cole Palmer on EA FC 24

There are some surprising names above Cole Palmer in the rankings.

Cole Palmer is tearing it up right now with Chelsea, but you won't believe which players have a higher rating than him in EA FC 24.

Cole Palmer has arguably been the signing of the season in the Premier League, having enjoyed as superb first campaign at Chelsea.

The London club paid £40 million to capture the young attacker from Manchester City, and it's fair to say he has been worth that fee and then some.

Palmer has scored 16 goals in 26 Premier League outings this season, and in all competitions has notched 21 goals and 12 assists in 39 games.

The 21-year-old's most recent trick was scoring twice in injury-time to secure his side a remarkable 4-3 win against Manchester United.

Palmer has provided a much-needed bright spark in an otherwise disastrous season for Chelsea, with Mauricio Pochettino's side currently 10th in the table.

Yet despite that, the youngster's rating on EA FC 24 is only 68, making him a silver card player.

When you see some of the players with higher ratings, it's hard not to laugh.

Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek has a rating of 77, despite making just eight Premier League appearances since Erik ten Hag took charge at Old Trafford in 2022.

While Loris Karius has put in some decent performances when called upon by Newcastle, the fact that a third choice goalkeeper has a rating higher than Palmer is ridiculous.

It's a similar story with Liverpool reserve keeper Adrian and Chelsea man Marcus Bettinelli.

Remember Roque Santa Cruz? The former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City striker is still playing at the age of 42 for Paraguayan Primera Division side Club Libertad.

Even he has a higher rating than Palmer, with EA FC 24 scoring him 70.

There are even League Two players, like Wrexham's Paul Mullin and Stockport County's Nick Powell, who are above Palmer in the player rankings.

Here a list of 10 players who have a higher rating on EA FC 24 than Chelsea star Palmer.

Donny van de Beek: 77

Divock Origi: 75

Loris Karius: 72

Adrian: 70

Nick Powell: 70

Marcus Bettinelli: 70

Roque Santa Cruz: 70

Jack Rodwell: 67

Paul Mullin: 68

Jon Guidetti: 68
