After a successful comeback season in the Premier League, fans were super excited to see the Leeds United FIFA 22 rankings, when the new game dropped on October 1. The rankings have been a bit underwhelming for the Whites given how well the lads performed in the previous season but still, there is plenty to get excited about.
In this piece, we are looking at the highlights from Leeds United’s FIFA 22 rankings.
RAPHINHA IS THE TOP-RATED PLAYER FROM LEEDS
Leeds’ star signing from last season, Raphinha had a memorable debut season in the Premier League. The Brazilian is the highest rated Leeds player in the game with an overall rating of 82. Raphinha is rapid in the game with a sprint speed of 91 and an acceleration of 90. His finishing of 74 could have been a bit higher but Leeds fans would take that. His dribbling is second to none in the Leeds squad at 86 and fans would enjoy taking shots from outside the box with Raphinha.
DANIEL JAMES IS THE QUICKEST
Talking about rapid speed, there is no other player in the squad who is faster than their latest signing Daniel James. Interestingly, James is the fourth-fastest player in the game and that tells you how highly the game rates his agility. With an acceleration of 96 and sprint speed of 95, there is no one who is catching James when he is on his bike.
STUART DALLAS CAN RUN FOR DAYS
Leeds’ Player of the Year recipient from the previous season, Stuart Dallas would be delighted to see how highly FIFA rates him when it comes to his stamina. Dallas has an engine like no other player in the game and his stamina is rated at 92. Once you have Dallas in your career mode, forget about rotation when it comes to the Northern Ireland footballer.
PATRICK BAMFORD IS A MASTER FINISHER
We all saw how great Patrick Bamford is when it comes to finishing in the previous season and FIFA have acknowledged his ability in front of goal. Bamford has the best finishing stat in the game when it comes to the Leeds squad, as he is rated 82 on his skill. His overall rating of 78 doesn’t do justice to the kind of season he had last year that actually got him an England call up as well. Bamford is another Leeds player who can run for his life with his stamina rating of 91.
KALVIN PHILLIPS CAN PASS THE BALL FOR FUN
Marcelo Bielsa absolutely adores Kalvin Phillips and he is one of the first names on the team sheet of both the Leeds team and the England national team. He was also recently named as the English Player of the Year by the national team. He is a wonderful passer of the ball and pulls the strings in the middle of the park for his side. His short pass and long pass are rated at 80 and 82, respectively. The boy can tackle as well with jumping into tackles being one of his specialities.
