The Everton striker has enjoyed a rich run of form for the Toffees in recent weeks, but was not rewarded with a change to his ratings on the game
FIFA 17 players flocked to their game consoles on Friday as the first round of player upgrades were issued by EA Sports.
The full FIFA 17 PL upgrades
N’Golo Kante, Alexis Sanchez, Dele Alli and Eden Hazard were among the stars rewarded with upgrades to their ratings for their fine form this season.
But one man who was absent from the list was Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, despite the Belgium international having scored 16 Premier League goals this season to leave him second behind Alexis in the race for the Golden Boot.
That led the former Chelsea forward to take to Twitter to – somewhat jokingly – hit back at the gaming giants and ponder whether their competitors Pro Evolution may have offered him a higher rating.
It doesn’t matter if i didn’t get an upgrade on a videogame as long i’m improving in real life #ProEvoMightGiveMeOne….

In reality, Lukaku cannot really complain given his three in-form cards for the season that has seen his rating rise from 84 to 88 while he also received a special Halloween card back in October.
A few more goals for the Toffees before the end of the campaign, however, could force a rethink at FIFA HQ before FIFA 18 hits stores later this year.
