Latest Arsenal FIFA 21 Update: Seven Players Downgraded

The latest FIFA 21 player database update is out and Arsenal stars have seen mixed results with some of the veteran players suffering setbacks while the young guns continue to progress.

That has been the story on the pitch under Mikel Arteta with a number of young stars, including Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli impressing after a disappointing start to the season.

That disappointing start was a collective effort, but poor displays from the likes of Willian and Nicolas Pepe could not be ignored, despite a recent resurgence, and that is reflected in the latest update with both players suffering downgrades.

See all the changes to the Arsenal squad on FIFA 21 as of the latest database update, which is available to download now on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
