FIFA 23 is just around the corner and it won’t be long before we take a look at some new rankings for each team.
Check below to see our predictions for how AFC Bournemouth could perform in this year’s game.
The best players
Bournemouth have returned to the Premier League under Scott Parker and the Cherries have had an impressive start to the season.
The second half of the campaign wasn’t pretty, but when you get things done?
Dominic Solanke has been the standout star for Parker’s men and he is sure to once again lead a Bournemouth side full of undersized gems in FIFA 23.
Solanke finally got his billing last season, with the striker scoring 30 times for the Cherries.
Bournemouth’s standout man last term, we think the Liverpool academy prospect will be an impressive upgrade to mirror his dominant season on the south coast.
A key figure in Bournemouth’s midfield, Lerma is a player with a great footballing mind.
A dominant figure who helped Bournemouth achieve their goals last season, we think Lerma will once again be a great option for your Premier League teams in FIFA 23.
Bournemouth may not have the strongest defense in the Premier League on paper, but there is no doubt that Mepham is a player who deserves more respect.
There is every chance that the Welshman will rise to gold, but for now we have him reaching the top of silver.
Bournemouth have been very quiet in the transfer market and have not been in a rush to spend big on new signings.
Instead, they made a steady trade, bringing in talents like Rothwell and Tavenier from the lower leagues.
With more additions to come before the end of the window, there is no doubt that the Cherries will be up against it as the season progresses.
After their impressive run, many of Bournemouth’s squad will receive a well-deserved upgrade.
Dom Solanke, Chris Mepham and Ryan Christie are likely to step up after impressive campaigns last term.
One player we can’t wait to see in FIFA 23 is Kiefer Moore, the Welsh forward offers a completely different dynamic to the Cherries.
They may not have the strongest team rating, but there are certainly some little gems in this Bournemouth squad.
Promotion usually dictates top performances, so it would be unfair for many – if any – to downgrade Bournemouth’s players.
That being said, we are looking forward to the improvement of new goalkeeper Neto, who was loaned from Barcelona this summer.
Still an impressive hit, we just feel it’s worth the drop from the 82 OVR rating it received last year.
All in all, we’re very much looking forward to seeing how many people this Bournemouth side can impress both in real life and in FIFA 23.
