North London was well and truly red last year as Arsenal enjoyed its best domestic Premier League finish since 2016, and the FC 24 Arsenal ratings are expected to look much more enticing for the Gunners coming into the EA FC era. With new signings Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and Jurrien Timber thrown into the mix, it’s an exciting time for the denizens of the Emirates Stadium.
Looking at the top 100 FC 24 ratings, an Arsenal player or two typically crops up – a trend that won’t be bucked when the FC 24 release date rolls around. But while the North London outfit is flourishing under head coach Mikel Arteta, we do expect one or two players to get a downgrade in this year’s soccer game. While we’re waiting for the full FC 24 ratings reveal from EA Sports, here is how we expect the likes of Bukayo Saka, William Saliba, and Martin Ødegaard to fare in FC 24 Ultimate Team and FC 24 Career Mode.

While the majority of the changes we’re predicting within this Arsenal squad are positive, we are expecting a few downgrades to fringe or ageing players within the team.
Last season’s standout stars were undoubtedly captain Martin Ødegaard, Bukayo Saka, and Gabriel Martinelli. The trio managed to notch up exactly half of Arsenal’s 88 domestic goals between them, while dazzling spectators home and away. As such, we predict major boosts for these young guns.
However, there were plenty of other Arsenal stars doing their bit to get the Gunners within touching distance of their first Premier League title since the legendary 2003/04 Invincibles season. Although Gabriel Jesus spent a large chunk of last season out with injury, the Brazilian was pivotal to Mikel Arteta’s system. He may not have been a goal machine, but his contributions in every other aspect of his game were exemplary.
While Jesus was out with injury, Eddie Nketiah was given his chance to shine – something he managed to on occasion despite operating as a more traditional fox in the box (think Ruud van Nistelrooy) than an all-round contributor to Arsenal’s attack. Though he’s not the most prolific striker just yet, Nketiah certainly deserves a gold card this year.
Nketiah isn’t the only young Arsenal striker to enjoy a strong season. While on loan with Reims, Folarin Balogun became a goalscoring machine, scoring 21 times in 37 matches – the joint-fourth highest in Ligue 1. Having been linked with a big money move away from the Emirates, we’re predicting a massive upgrade for the American.
Other notable boosts include William Saliba – one of the best young FC 24 CB stars – Aaron Ramsdale, and Leandro Trossard. Having signed from Brighton for $34 million in last January’s transfer window, Trossard swiftly notched up double-digit assists (10), making him one of the best pieces of business conducted in the window.
On the topic of shrewd business, Arsenal’s summer acquisition of Chelsea’s Kai Havertz has been met with a few raised eyebrows. However, the German has seldom been deployed in his favoured position – something he will enjoy to a far greater extent under Arteta. We’ve kept him at 84 overall for now in light of this.
Elsewhere in the summer signings department, we have Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber. The $100+ million the Gunners stumped up for Rice is certainly indicative of his value both as a player and as a leader on the pitch. It would certainly be rude for the Englishman to not receive a small bump up off the back of it. Finally, Timber has excited fans during Arsenal’s pre-season, though we’re reluctant to upgrade him after he sustained a nasty-looking injury against Nottingham Forest, making it unlikely that he’ll be able to prove his mettle in the Premier League anytime soon.
And that’s our full FC 24 Arsenal ratings rundown. As official confirmations begin to come in from EA Sports, we’ll be sure to update this guide – be sure to keep it bookmarked as we head towards launch day.
