The storm surrounds Trent Alexander-Arnold's rating on the upcoming video game, which is set to be 87 - according to leakers.
While fans of Liverpool and rival clubs will argue over whether this is a fair refection of his quality or not, the real issue for some is that the Full-back is seemingly three ratings higher than Reece James.
On Tuesday (30 August) a flood of Tweets started appearing which purported to show the FIFA 23 ratings - before EA had officially made them public.
A Twitter user my the name of @ahmedLFC_ supplied the Liverpool squad ratings to eager fans of the game, and it's fair to say not everyone was happy with what they saw.
For years, Alexander-Arnold's pace on the game has been a topic of conversation amongst players, with many feeling that he consistently gets shortchanged by EA.
The same critical voices were out in full force in the comments once again, as to the dismay of some users, TAA's pace appears to have been been downgraded on FIFA 23.

One person wrote: "Trent has been violated," while a second user added: "Salah should be 91 and Alisson, Trent deserve upgrade."
A third person proclaimed: "Trent literally bulked up and has gotten way faster and they downgraded his pace."

However, not all the comments were in agreement over this issue, as some rival fans actually claimed the opposite - that the 23-year-old's stats are too high compared to some of his peers.
"Trent 87 James 84 wtf", one user clapped back, alluding to the fact that Reece James has a rating three below that of his England teammate.
Another Twitter commenter simply added "Trent should be 75 max".
Elsewhere in the squad, the top two rated Liverpool players are, rather understandably, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, who are both 90.
Just below is Alisson at 89, while Andrew Robertson joins his fellow Full-back on 87.
As for the summer arrivals, Darwin Nunez has a rating of 82, while Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsey are rated at 73 and 64 respectively - according to leakers.
FIFA 23 is set to hit the shelves on the 30 September, with it being the final edition to carry the iconic 'FIFA' title before the franchise becomes 'EA Sports FC'.
