EA has been revealing FIFA 23 player ratings with Liverpool star Salah in the top 25, and a leak revealing overalls for almost the whole squad has been dubbed a ‘crime against football’ by some fans.
EA’s last FIFA doesn’t come out until the end of September, but EA has been announcing lots of new information. The release date for the Web app has been confirmed along with when you can download the Companion application on mobile, and they both come out one week before the Ultimate edition early access.
Liverpool has had a difficult start to the 22/23 season with poor form and a spanking by Napoli, and fans are not entirely happy with leaked overalls from EA.
Below are the only official FIFA 23 Liverpool player ratings so far:
Confirmation of the above comes via EA’s ratings database website. All of the above players fall into the top 25 footballers in the game.
Below are all the leaked FIFA 23 Liverpool player ratings including Trent, Diogo Jota, and Thiago:
All of the above leaks come courtesy of Twitter user C4XX_Savage, except for Harvey Elliott who comes from LFCJannik. There were other posts on Twitter with images of the players with ratings beside them, but these have been taken down by EA.
The leaked overalls aren’t official as of writing, but they come from a glitch on Xbox which allowed numerous people to play two hours of early access earlier this month.

Liverpool fans have reacted to the FIFA 23 player ratings leaks under a Twitter thread from ahmedLFC, and one fan claims Thiago’s 86 is a ‘crime against football‘.
A fan responded to the disgruntlement claiming the same can be said with Joel Matip’s 84. Aside from Joel Matip and Thiago, there’s also some disgruntlement with Alexander Arnold’s pace, meanwhile others feel he’s rated too high as only his passing is above 87.
Some also feel Alisson should be a 90, while Harvey Elliott as a 73 has really wound some fans up. While disgruntlement and arguments caused by overalls happens every year, it’s important to note that the leaked player ratings are not final.
FIFA Direct Communications responded to all the leaks by saying that the early access some Xbox players were able to enjoy wasn’t final content. This suggests some player overalls may change.
