We quizzed West Ham forward Michail Antonio on his FIFA 19 stats, and he was not happy with his rating.
Ahead of West Ham's Friday Night Football clash with Brighton, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League, the forward was left frustrated by his pace and physicality stats after his overall rating dropped by two.
"I'm not happy at all," Antonio told Sky Sports. "Look at this, they've dropped me overall by two. I understand I was quite injured last year but are you going to punish someone for being injured? I don't think that's right by the way.
Then they've dropped my scores. My pace, 83. I'm definitely a 90."
When asked which stats he was must unhappy about, he answered: "Pace, physicality, shot, dribbling, pass and defending. The whole thing is embarrassing."
Antonio was also quizzed on the stats of his team-mates at the London Stadium.
Who is the strongest player at West Ham? Who's the slowest player in Manuel Pellegrini's side? Who's the best passer at the London Stadium? Who is the player with the best overall rating? And which player has the most potential?
The answer to the last question was Isa Diop but Declan Rice was a close second, and Antonio was full of praise for the 19-year-old.

"What a quality player," he said. "Since he's been in the first team he's never taken a step back. He's been involved week in, week out. He's good on the ball and obviously started off as a centre-back.
"Now he's moved to defensive midfielder. He knows how to read the game and knows how to break it up. He's big, he's strong, he's definitely got great potential and we are now definitely seeing it in games."
