The winners and losers from the EA Sports FC 24 ratings reveal as Lionel Messi downgraded
| Last updated
The EA Sports FC 24 ratings reveal dropped on Monday - and there are some significant winners and losers.
There was some bad news for Lionel Messi, who dropped down to a 90 overall - meaning EA Sports FC 24 is the first EA game since FIFA 07 not to feature the Inter Miami star or Cristiano Ronaldo on the top spot.
There's bad news on the way for Ronaldo as well, with leaked ratings having him at an 86 overall - a huge drop of four points.
The new game will also see women's players involved in Ultimate Team for the first time in the franchise's history, and the highest-rated women's stars were announced at the same time as the men's by EA ahead of the new mode launching later this month.
Here, we look at three winners and three losers from the ratings reveal.
Haaland is now one of four highest-rated players on the game, earning a 91 overall rating for his performances with City.
The Spanish midfielder was a titan for City as they won the Champions League, scoring the winning goal in the final against Inter Milan.
For Rodri, it was another dominant campaign, and although his card stats may not look worthy of a 89 rating, the final overall certainly is deserved.
Aitana Bonmati played a leading role for Spain in the Women's World Cup, earning the Golden Ball award as the player of the tournament.
A leading contender for this year's Ballon d'Or, the attacking midfielder has earned an overall boost of four on EA FC 24.
Virgil van Dijk
Liverpool finished in a disappointing fifth place in the Premier League last season - and Van Dijk is the first of their players to be dealt with a downgrade.
The Dutchman drops from a 90 overall to an 89, and will hope to bounce back this campaign.
Messi is another player in the downgrade camp, also receiving a drop from 91 to 90. The Argentinian forward did win the World Cup in December, but it is likely his PSG form that has caused him to slip down the order.
It's not often that the reigning Ballon d'Or winner gets a downgrade, but that's what has happened to Benzema after his move to Al Ittihad.
The France striker drops from a 91 to a 90 overall - meaning he loses his hold on the joint top spot.
