FIFA 21 Manchester United player ratings predictions | De Gea, Pogba, more

With FIFA 21’s official reveal now in the books, we turn our attention to how Manchester United, one of the world’s biggest clubs, could look in next year’s football simulation title. 

We’ve already looked into our crystal balls and predicted the top 10 players in major leagues for FIFA 21, as well as suggesting some players destined for significant upgrades.

Now, though, we’re focusing on the red half of Manchester who, despite being one of the world’s biggest football clubs, have struggled to really challenge since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure way back in 2013.

In order to make our predictions, we’ll be looking at how the players have played so far, as well as their existing FIFA 20 ratings. We’ll focus on five to begin with, then give a broader overview of the rest of the squad.

Paul Pogba – 88 > 87

Pogba is, in many ways, a tricky one to predict. The French midfielder is one of the most naturally talented players in the world, but questions over his attitude and fitness have clouded his future in Manchester.

The remaining PL fixtures could prove decisive in whether he stays in England. Either way, we’ve gone for a downgrade of one based on his lack of appearances this season, and his struggles with keeping fit.

David De Gea – 89 > 87

We’ve also gone for a downgrade of two to the OVR of David De Gea, the Spaniard who has been United’s number one for nearly a decade now.

However, many football fans will have seen a noticeable decline in his consistency, with uncharacteristic mistakes creeping in. On his day he’s still a top keeper, but his mistakes are costing his predicted rating, and Man United.

Marcus Rashford – 83 > 85

We’re predicting an upgrade of two for Marcus Rashford, as the young England forward continues to impress for the Red Devils. He received four boosted cards in FIFA 20, including a FUT Birthday card, and a TOTSSF card.

Still only 22, his upwards trajectory could see him become one of the PL’s most feared forwards in the coming seasons.

Anthony Martial – 83 > 84

Martial has also proved himself to be slightly above his FIFA 20 rating. Playing more as an out and out striker this season, he has impressed and proved his talents, racking up 11 goals and 3 assists in 23 appearances.

Bruno Fernandes – 85 > 87

Fernandes has seriously impressed in his time at Man Utd so far. Joining in January from Sporting Lison, many fans were surprised at how fast he was thrown into the mix by Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

However, his early form saw him rack up numerous goals and assists, to the point of being crowned February’s POTM. His influence going forward will only increase, but we’re going for a modest upgrade of two, simply because he’s not been at United long enough to warrant a more generous OVR boost.

Man Utd FIFA 21 Player Rating Predictions

We’ll now round up the FIFA 21 rating by predicting how the rest of the squad will look. Mason Greenwood looks likely to get a major upgrade, while others look set for modest changes.

  • Juan Mata – 82 > 81
  • Harry Maguire – 82 > 82
  • Jesse Lingard – 82 > 79
  • Luke Shaw – 81 > 81
  • Nemanja Matic – 81 > 80
  • Victor Lindelof – 81 > 81
  • Sergio Romero – 80 > 80
  • Eric Bailly – 80 > 80
  • Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 79 > 81
  • Phil Jones – 79 > 78
  • Fred – 79 > 80
  • Marcos Rojo – 78 > 78
  • Scott McTominay – 77 > 79
  • Andreas Pereira – 77 > 77
  • Dan James – 77 > 78
  • Diogo Dalot – 75 > 76
  • Mason Greenwood – 67 > 76

EA Sports is rolling out some special Black Friday Squad Building Challenges and Objectives for Black Friday, and we’ve got all the info you need to make the Flashback Sergio Aguero and Record Breaker Rodrygo cards all yours.

Man City’s star forward has an all-new SBC available for Black Friday, along with Real Madrid’s Rodrygo, who gets a new set of Objectives for players to complete.

Let’s get the warning on price out of the way right here, completing Aguero’s SBC will not come cheap, but the good news is that there’s potential to pick up Rodrygo for absolutely nothing.

We’ll get the Objective requirements out of the way first since they obviously don’t require specific solutions like the SBC will. This Record Breaker card celebrates Rodrygo becoming the youngest-ever player to score a hat-trick in the UCL.

There are five requirements in total, and like we mentioned you don’t necessarily have to spend anything to complete them unless you’re lacking 8 LaLiga players to put in your starting squad. You can find the full list below:

  • Hat Trick Hero: Score at least 3 goals in one match using Brazilian players in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • Setup Skills: Assist 8 goals using players with minimum 4* Skill Moves in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • LaLiga Lessons: Score in 13 separate matches using LaLiga players in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • Heroic Heading: Score 3 Headers in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • Winning Streak: Win 7 matches in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.

FIFA 21 Aguero Black Friday Flashback SBC

Stats for Aguero’s Flashback SBC card.

This SBC has four different challenges, and like we mentioned it will not be too cheap at all, coming in at around 430,000 to 490,000 FUT coins depending on your platform of choice.

That’s not saying it isn’t a worthwhile card, with 90 Dribbling, 88 Pace, and 85 shooting, he would be a great addition to any lineup, it just comes down to whether or not you want to spend that kind of cash. The challenges for Aguero’s Flashback SBC are listed below:
