Bruno Fernandes has been revealed as the Premier League Player of the Month for February, meaning he’s got a special card inside FIFA 20 Ultimate Team. If you’re trying to grab it, here’s what you need to do.

Since joining Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window, Fernandes has been in fine form with three goals and four assists from nine games. The Portuguese has already established himself as a fan-favorite with the Old Trafford faithful as well. 

As a result of his excellent form, the 25-year-old has been voted as the Premier League’s Player of the Month for February, giving him a nice 90-rated card inside FUT. To get your hands on it though, you’re going to have to part with a few hundred thousand coins first. 

Bruno Fernandes FIFA 20 SBC time limit, requirements, & cost

As is tradition, the Player of the Month card is available via a round of squad building challenges – SBCs – but for Bruno, you’re really going to have to work for it. 

There are five, yes five, separate SBCs that you’ll have to tick off, including an 86-rated squad, two separate 87-rated squads with different chemistry requirements, and a Premier League-themed team.

  • Manchester United – Min 1 Man United player, Min 85 squad rating, Min 70 team chemistry
  • Premier League – Min 1 Premier League player, Min 86 squad rating, Min 65 team chemistry
  • 86-rated squad – Min 86 squad rating, Min 65 team chemistry
  • 87-rated squad – Min 87 squad rating, Min 60 team chemistry
  • 87-rated squad – Min 87 squad rating, Min 55 team chemistry

PL POTM Bruno Fernandes FIFA 20 SBC answers

As of writing, the cost of completing the SBC varies a little bit depending on which platform you’re on. According to FUTBIN, it will cost you 756k on Xbox One, 761k on PlayStation, and 771k on Origin for PC. 

To help you along though, we’ve rounded a few of the cheapest answers available to you from FUTBIN, starting with the Manchester United squad and following the order already set out above.

POTM Bruno Fernandes 87-rated squad SBC answers

To save a bit of confusion, we’ve given two 87-rated teams their own section, with the first team being the one you need to complete the minimum 60 chemistry, and the second for 55 chemistry.

With these two challenges being pretty similar in overall requirements, you could do tinkering of your own in order to figure out a cheaper and easier combination of players for your own budget.

February POTM Bruno Fernandes FIFA 20 stats

As a 90-rated CAM, many players will assume that the POTM Fernandes card is all about attack, however, it appears to be a pretty well-balanced card. 

Of course, his attacking stats stand out as the Portuguese has 95 long shots, 90 crossing, and 92 long passing, but he can get about the pitch. Fernandes clocks in with 90 acceleration, 99 stamina, 91 dribbling, and 79 interceptions.

Though, you probably won’t be able to count on him when in defensive. All of his defensive stats bar awareness and strength are below 70, so you’ll want to keep him on the front foot.

Like other Player of the Month SBCs, the Fernandes challenges will be sticking around for almost a full month – with the expiry date clocking in as Sunday, April 12.

What EA will do for the April POTM, however, remains to be seen as leagues across the world have shut down due to the Coronavirus outbreak – with many not expected to resume until the summer months, if they resume at all.

Son Heung-min builds his dream “Ultimate player” in FIFA 21

Tottenham star Son Heung-Min sat down with Irish footballer David Meyer to build the ultimate Hotspur card for FUT 21, and it would be an absolute titan were it real.

Son is generally considered one of the best wingers playing today, and was named EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month for the third time in October 2020.

Along with Meyer, the South Korean concocted an Ultimate Teammate, a monster of a card combining the best stats from Tottenham players including himself, albeit a bit reluctantly.

Each of the six stats that make up a FIFA player card — Pace, Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, Defense, and Physical — were included, and the end result is a Frankenstein’s Monster of skill that you would never want to go up against (though, we’d take him on our squad).

So, let’s take a look at what Son managed to cook up, starting with Pace, and running on through the list:

Pace — Lucas Moura

EA Sports
Lucas is certainly speedy, so we can’t fault Son here.

For any fan of the Spurs, the choice of Lucas Moura for best Pace will come as no surprise, boasting a highly decent 92 on his regular gold card.

“Lucas is definitely faster than me,” Son laughed, when prodded by Meyer that he might actually have the edge in speed. EA apparently agrees, only giving the Winger an 88 Pace for his standard card.

Shooting — Harry Kane

Who else but Harry Kane? That 92 shooting will fit in quite nicely.

For shooting, the choice was none other than Harry Kane, who comes in with 92 in that category, one of the highest on Tottenham.

Again, Son was reluctant to name himself. Possibly because he’s a crack FIFA expert and was aware Kane has six more points in shooting than his 86, that, or he’s just doesn’t want to leave anyone out.

Dribbling — Lucas Moura

Despite considering Steven Bergwijn and himself (again) for best dribbling on Tottenham, Son once again went with the reliable pick of Moura.

While Bergwijn is only an 85 DRB, it could have really gone either way between the final two contestants, but an unwillingness to give himself much credit led to Lucas getting picked once again.

Passing — Giovani Lo Celso

Argentine Giovani Lo Celso was Son’s pick for Tottenham’s best passer.

For Passing, Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso got the nod, but only comes in with an 82 for his standard card in the stat. Still, we have to remember this was only Tottenham players that were able to be picked.

That, and Son has hooked with Son quite a few times for memorable goals over their careers, which could have been another factor in the pick.

Defending —Toby Alderweireld

Belgian back Toby Alderweireld’s 85 DEF got him a spot on the Ultimate card.

After joking that the upgrade to make his DEF 45 for his latest POTM card might be enough to finally make him choose himself, Son made a more reasonable choice and went with Alderweireld.

87 Defence is definitely nothing to scoff at, and put together with our sixth and final stat, it helps to make this “Ultimate Card” absolutely freakish.

Physical — Moussa Sissoko

Looking at the stats, it’s easy to see why Sissoko got the pick here.

Finally, rounding things out at Physical is Moussa Sissoko who comes in with an 89 — his best stat by far. This was one area where Son probably wouldn’t be considered either, on top of Defense.

Altogether, we get a 99 OVR card boasting 92 Pace, 91 Shooting, 82 Passing, 87 Dribbling, 87 Defense, and 89 Physical. Just imagine for a moment the price tag that would come along with the SBC for this bad boy.

EA Sports
An absolute monstrosity, in more ways than one.

Luckily, Son’s Ultimate Teammate card will most likely never make it into FIFA 21 itself, as it would be massively overpowered — if you haven’t picked up on that already.
