West Ham fans on Twitter have spotted something bizarre about Mark Noble’s EA Sports FIFA Team of the Week card after he was named in the weekly side following his Premier League brace against AFC Bournemouth.

The game’s makers only gave the skipper a pace rating of 47 out of 100 – he may not be the quickest but we all know he’s probably a bit faster than that.
Supporters were quick to jump on the misrating, sarcastically suggesting that the 31-year-old is “rapid” on the game, calling Noble’s FIFA speed “mad pace” and offering their utter disbelief.
The TOTW card actually gives an improvement on Noble’s ordinary FIFA pace of 41 and a five-point improvement on his overall rating for Ultimate Team, with six more points for his shooting, five more for his passing, dribbling, and defensive abilities respectively and six more for his physicality.
47 pace 😱
