What are the biggest changes compared to FIFA 21?

Surprisingly, EA Sports has knocked three points each off Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Salah had a pace rating of 93 in FIFA 21, yet finds himself rated at 90 for the latest edition. While Mane was a 94 in pace in FIFA 21 but is down to 91 in the FIFA 22 game.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also slipped down the pecking order. Like Salah, the 32-year-old has gone from a pace rating of 93 in FIFA 21 to 90 in the FIFA 22 edition.

Hakimi, meanwhile, has improved by one point to a 94 rating in FIFA 22, as have Napoli striker Victor Osimhen and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The fastest player in FIFA 22 is Kylian Mbappe, who has a rating of 97 for pace in the game. The PSG and France striker is also the gameโ€™s cover star and is one of the best overall players, rated at 91.

Wolves winger Adama Traore is the second-fastest player in FIFA 22 on a 96 pace rating. Joining him with the same rating is Bayern Munich wideman Alphonso Davies to complete the top three.
