Next week marks the beginning of FIFA 15 January winter upgrades. EA Sports FIFA has shocked us all with the World XI Team of the Year (TOTY), featuring the very first ever 99 rated player, Cristiano Ronaldo. In addition to that unreal squad, EA released the first batch of winter transfers a whole week in advance. What could be next?
January upgrades of course! With in-form players, such as Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa, who else could be deserving of an upgrade come February? Here, we look at the five players who deserve to get upgraded. Now, the list is not exhaustive and may not represent all the top players deserving of a rating increase.

Cesar Azpilicueta â€“ 79 to 81
Why is Chelseaâ€™s Mr. Versatile only rated 79 on FIFA? You donâ€™t get called the best defender in the Premier League by Jamie Carragher for no good reason.
Azpilicueta has become one of the leading full backs in the world after a less than high profile move to Chelsea back in 2012. Even though he plays most of his football at left back, this right footer still consistently gets 8 out of 10 match rating each week. The 25-year-old has also made 10 international caps for Spain since his debut in 2013
If he continues the sort of form he has shown for Chelsea, Marseille and Osasuna, Azpilicueta is set for a long career at the top and could potentially go down as one of the most decorated players in Premier League history.
