“This is FIFA politics” – Man United fans furious that Arsenal star is rated higher than Paul Pogba
EA Sports FIFA 18 is just weeks from being released and the controversy surrounding player ratings has already begun.
Man United fans have been stirred up by the rating of their star midfielder Paul Pogba. The France international failed to live up to expectations during his initial season at the club.
However, the 24-year-old has started this season in impressive form.
United fans are incensed that Pogba has a lower rating than Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil. The World Cup winner has been under fire from pundits and fans in recent weeks but still managed to come away with a rating of 88/100.

Pogba provided just six assists and scored nine goals after 51 appearances for United following an £89 million move from Juventus.
Arsenal will be hoping Ozil can return to his best when they take on their London rivals Chelsea this weekend. Man United meanwhile host FC Basel in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday before taking on Everton.
