Revealed! The 18 best FIFA 18 Ultimate Team ratings refresh upgrades
Headline act: Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona)
86 OVR > 87 OVR
OK, this one is a bit sneaky. Coutinho has spent most of the season showing his skills in the Premier League before his big-money move to Barça. He hasn’t quite hit the ground running yet at the Camp Nou, but he’s sure to improve many a La Liga Ultimate Team squad.
Best upgrades: Alejandro Mula (Malaga)
60 OVR > 73 OVR
No, that’s not a typo. That 13-point jump for the Spanish winger is well deserved after tearing things up with Malaga at the start of the season. In essence, he’s a whole new player who could make a mockery of players rated far above him in-game. Just check out those stats.
Best upgrades: Maximiliano Gomez (Celta Vigo)
70 OVR > 77 OVR
Probably not the top Spanish-based Uruguayan striker you’d want on your team, but don’t discount Gomez. He’s currently boasting a one-in-two record in La Liga, and he’s only 21 years old. Plenty more to come, and that might yet include a 2018 World Cup appearance.
Rest of the World
Headline act: Yacine Brahimi (Porto)
82 OVR > 84 OVR
The Algerian has continued his consistent form while plying on the wing for Porto this season. He’s been duly rewarded with a solid improvement upon his basic card.
Best upgrades: Joao Novais (Rio Ave)
62 OVR > 73 OVR
Not only does the Portuguese midfielder have one of the best upgrades in the game, he now also comes with 99 shot power. He’s the PES 6 Adriano of FIFA 18. Go and get him.
Best upgrades: Maximilian Wober (Ajax)
66 OVR > 73 OVR
Ajax didn't create this composed young stopper – Rapid Vienna did – but he's their player now. Unless you want to nab in in FUT , that is. With serious pace and defending upgrades, Wober is sure to improve any Eredivisie side you're trying to cobble together.
