EA already picked the best players of the week. The players names were unveiled this Wednesday at 3pm UK.

Chelsea’s Cesc Fàbregas made quite the first impression in the Premier League with his new club, earning two assists in their 1:3 victory over Burnley on Monday FIFA 14 Coins evening.

Mathieu Valbuena helped set-up both of Dinamo Moskva’s goals in their 1:2 away victory over Arsenal Tula on Sunday. He now has four assists in three league appearances while the club currently sit in second place, three points behind leaders Zenit.

PSV crushed NAC Breda 6:1 on Saturday, with left winger Memphis Depay scoring twice and helping set-up another. After only two matches, the 20 year-old leads the league with four goals.

Standing 5-foot-11 and weighing more than 220 pounds, Adebayo Akinfenwa has always been difficult to miss on the pitch. He has consistently scored goals in League One and League Two throughout his career, but last year he became a cult figure with an international following when he was rated the world's strongest footballer in FIFA 14. He can bench press 400 pounds. 

The 32-year-old striker, who scored 10 goals for League One's Gillingham last season before moving to League Two side AFC Wilmbledon in June, was given a strength rating of 97 (out of 100) and an overall rating of 63 by FIFA 14 Coins EA Sports. But due to his considerable girth, his sprint speed rating was just a 53 and his acceleration was a 34, which is roughly equivalent to what Cristiano Ronaldo's ratings would be if he were wrapped in duct tape and forced to run through quicksand while wearing potatoes as shoes. 


In an interview with the BBC last year, Akinfenwa said that his two brothers are bigger than him and if he doesn't stay big, they'll bully him. He also told the story of a how a police officer thought he was an NFL player.

That cop who pulled him over wasn't the first to have visions of Akinfenwa on the gridiron, though. He's been invited to train with rugby clubs, and American universities tried to recruit him for American football. Maybe his ratings would be better in Madden.

The woes of Playstation owners who play FIFA look to be mounting as EA Sports announced last week that 15 new Legends would be introduced to FIFA 15. These historical powerhouses of the beautiful game will be added to the already-ample roster of 42 Legends from FIFA 14, available exclusively to Xbox 360 and Xbox One gamers.

The notion of a team spear-headed by the combo of Pelé and Messi with service from Iniesta and Gheorghe Hagi is part of the reason virtual football can be so much more entertaining than the real thing; a cross-generational team of this nature is only possible thanks to FIFA Ultimate Teams’ inclusion of Legends.

Though there are still several notable absentees from FIFA 15’s roster of Legends such as Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane and Brazil’s Ronaldo, the 15 new players who should buy FIFA 14 Coins all improve an already excellent Xbox exclusive. One question which now needs answering is how these new Legends’ ratings will compare to those of the other Legends returning from FIFA 14. Of course we won’t definitively know the answer to this until the game is finally released next month, but it is always fun to speculate.
