Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan has earned the Premier League Player of the Month award for January, meaning there’s a new SBC to complete in-game.

The news that Gundogan has picked up the POTM award for the month of January will be no surprise to anyone who’s been watching him play. The Man City midfielder has been absolutely dominating the opposition and has helped his club move up to the top spot in the Premier League.

EA SPORTS FIFA broke the news on their Twitter page and FIFA fans everywhere are all in agreement that the award couldn’t have gone to anyone else. His card, although not sporting the highest of stats, is rated 86 overall and would be a great option for a center-mid.

This is quite a simple SBC compared to last month’s Bruno Fernandes card that required players to build six squads in total. Luckily, for Gundogan, it’s just the one so it shouldn’t be too difficult to complete. So using FUTBIN as a guideline, let’s breakdown exactly how to complete this SBC.


  • Players from Manchester City: Min 1
  • In-form players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Number of players in squad: Min 11

Cost and FUT Pack rewards

According to FUTBIN, this SBC should cost you around 40,000-55,000 in Ultimate Team. All things considered, that’s rather cheap compared to some other SBC’s we’ve seen in the past.

In return for completing this SBC, players will receive a number of packs as a reward. This gives you a chance to pick up some amazing players if you get lucky of course.

Gundogan plays as a midfielder for Manchester City.

As we said, this is a rather simple SBC to complete and shouldn’t take you too long. The Manchester City midfielder is certainly deserving of this month’s award and we’ll have to see if he can bag POTM two months in a row just like Fernandes.

A new Flashback SBC is now live in FIFA 21, with Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos getting a boosted card. Here’s what you need to know. 

Flashbacks are always a fun addition to Ultimate Team, as they let you grab powerful throwback cards for players that take them back to a special moment or a prime time during their career.

This latest standalone SBC celebrates Kroos’s prolific 2017-2018 LaLiga season playing for Real Madrid with a very nice 93 OVR card that could definitely beef up your midfield lineup.

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC requirements & price

There are three total squads all with their own sets of requirements to knock out in order to complete this SBC, and on top of unlocking Kroos’s powered-up card at the end, you’ll also get a pack reward for each set of challenges.

To grab the German midfielder for yourself you’ll need to build one Bundesliga-themed squad, one La Liga-themed one, and finally, a Top Form challenge to wrap it all up.

The catch is that all three require fairly high ratings: 83 for Bundesliga, 84 for La Liga, and 85 for Top Form, which just might be where the high price tag is coming from.


  • Number of players from Bundesliga: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 83
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: 1 Prime Mixed Players Pack
