EA SPORTS are set to reveal a fresh batch of FIFA 21 Ones to Watch cards in Ultimate Team when the game releases this October, and we’ve thrown together some early predictions.

Domestic leagues across the world are eyeing a return to their regular football schedule, with the 2020/2021 season quickly approaching, it’s been no surprise to see clubs looking to add new players to their squads.

Whether you look at transfer rumors and gossip, or just confirmed moves, the market is certainly hotting up. Transfers mean new cards in FIFA Ultimate Team so you can start to get a feel for what you want to do in the next game. Amongst these new cards are a select group called the Ones to Watch.

These highly sought-after cards represent some of the biggest, and most interesting, moves of the transfer window and if you get one, they’ll update whenever your player gets an upgrade – be it a TOTW or such. 

FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition pre-order details
A single Ones to Watch card will be collected by thousands of players who pre-ordered FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition.

We already know that new Chelsea forward Timo Werner is getting a special card after EA announced that on Instagram, and it seems like that new teammate Ben Chilwell will join him. Gareth Bale is also getting a card after returning to Spurs. 

Further afield, Leroy Sane has finally swapped Manchester City for Bayern Munich, so he’ll probably get one too. As will his replacement Ferran Torres. Everton have signed Allan from Napoli and James Rodriguez from Real Madrid, and they would make sense as OTWs too. Though, they’ve not been announced.

Obviously, the list above is solely based on our predictions on who seems likely to get a card – and given that the transfer window still has a way to go before closing, there should be moves that shake things up.

As we get closer to the close of the window, and the launch of FIFA 21, we’ll keep the list updated with further predictions and any confirmed cards that EA might drop.

How to complete Depay Moments SBC in FIFA 21: cheapest solutions & cost

A new Squad Building Challenge is now available in FIFA 21 for Dutch forward Memphis Depay, celebrating his long-range goal vs Toulouse FC in the 2016-17 Ligue 1 Season.

The young gun Depay has played for Lyon since 2017, and it was during his first year with the club that he made the ridiculous shot this SBC celebrates.

If you haven’t seen the goal in question, it’s worth looking up as the Dutchman sends a bomb to the moon and back from practically the halfway line to score on the unsuspecting Toulouse keeper.

While fans of the sport me lament that this isn’t an FC Barcelona version – after Depay’s rumored summer move to the Catalan giants fell through – it’s still one that could prove to be a difference-maker match in and match out.

Memphis Depay SBC stats

Depay SBC reward
Stats for Depay’s Moments SBC card.

Stats-wise, this card is incredibly well-balanced for a forward player; every one of Depay’s stats except for Defending is set in the 80s. Pace (88) and Shooting (87) are his highest followed closely by Dribbling (86), Passing (84), and Physicality (82).

If you need some fresh blood at forward, Depay would be a fantastic choice based on these stats alone, but there is one big obstacle — the price — that might get in the way.

Memphis Depay SBC Requirements & Solutions

Even more good news is that there’s only one Squad Building Challenge to complete to knock this baby out. The not so good news is that it will run you anywhere from 146,000 to 176,000 coins, depending on your platform of choice. The full list of requirements is listed below:

  • Number of players from Ligue 1 Conforama: Min 1
  • In Form Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 86
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

To make things as easy and pain-free as possible, we’ve also got two of the cheapest solutions that also don’t require any loyalty to complete listed below.
