The major issue for the Tottenham fans is that Lukaku has been ranked higher than their talisman Harry Kane. Kane has been the best striker in the Premier League for a while now and it is understandable why the Spurs faithful are furious.
EA Sports have not only ranked Lukaku higher than Kane, they have given the two players the same overall rating. Kane is ranked 53, whereas Lukaku is 48th on the list.
Although Lukaku’s talent and ability to score goals is beyond any doubt, it is evident that Kane has been a better player and has performed better over the last three years.
Lukaku has been given 83 for pace, 85 for shooting, 84 for physicality, 74 for dribbling, 70 for passing and 34 for defending.
Kane has just 71 for pace and 83 for physicality but has been given 79 for dribbling, 87 for shooting, 72 for passing and 42 for defending.
Furthermore, the Manchester United striker has also been ranked higher than the likes of Karim Benzema, Diego Costa and Alexandre Lacazette.
Here is how the fans reacted to the ratings on Twitter
HOW IS KANE ONLY 86 RATED!!

How is Lukaku rated 5 places higher than Kane? Incompetent ratings staff need to be sacked. Kane has outscored him 3 seasons in a row!
