Manchester United Boasts Most Skillful Frontline in the Premier League
While Manchester United has had a challenging start to the season, they currently possess the most skillful frontline in the Premier League, as per EA Sports FC 24’s ratings.
Surprisingly, the Red Devils’ attacking trio of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, and Antony outranks the likes of Manchester City’s formidable combination of Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish, and Phil Foden, as well as Arsenal’s talented trio consisting of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Jesus.
It’s essential to remember that evaluating football stars based on video game statistics is not a definitive measure of their real-world abilities. Nonetheless, EA Sports FC 24’s recently released ratings provide intriguing insights.
According to FC 24’s comprehensive global football rankings, there are just 47 players worldwide with a coveted 5* skill rating, and remarkably, three of them are part of Manchester United’s squad: Rashford, Sancho, and Antony.
In comparison, Arsenal boasts a single 5* skilled player in Martin Odegaard, while Liverpool features Thiago with this skill rating, and Manchester City currently has none.
Paris Saint-Germain comes closest to rival Manchester United’s skillful frontline, with both Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele holding 5* skill ratings, although Randal Kolo Muani possesses 4* skill moves. PSG’s trio, all rated 90 for speed, collectively forms the fastest frontline in the game.
Ironically, despite this impressive attacking potential, Manchester United has yet to field this trio on the pitch, making it a tantalizing prospect for fans both in the real world and on gaming consoles.
As Jadon Sancho’s saga continues at Old Trafford, with reports of his omission and Erik ten Hag’s unwavering stance, he has been spotted playing FC 24 online during his absence, leaving fans curious about his team selection. Antony, on the other hand, has recently returned to the UK amidst allegations of assault, potentially reuniting with Manchester United in the future.
