Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has had his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team lineup revealed and it’s a beauty – even if it’s not quite on the level of Erling Haaland’s squad.

Just like everyone else, some professional footballers love nothing more than dominating games of FIFA. This is obviously made a little easier in Ultimate Team given that EA SPORTS hands out Pro Players to these players so you know you’re playing the real deal.

Back in November, we covered the first iteration of Jack Grealish’s FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The Villa star’s squad was filled with ICONS and a number of standout players, but his own 99-rated pro player card was nowhere to be seen.

Now, Grealish has significantly upgraded his starting XI with new ICON cards and he’s finally decided to give himself the left-mid position.

The upgraded version of the Villa midfielder’s squad was posted to the FIFA subreddit and has over 500 upvotes at the time of writing.

Grealish has retained his attacking trio of ICONS, with Pele, Ronaldo, and Butragueno making up a clinical front three.

Perhaps the biggest change in his squad is the addition of himself into the left-mid position. FIFA fans were extremely confused why Grealish hadn’t included himself in the previous iteration of his squad. Some players speculated that EA had not given him his Pro Player card at that time.

In terms of his defense, he’s gone for Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk and Manchester City’s Kyle Walker in the center back position. Two Brazilian legends in Roberto Carlos and Carlos Alberto sit beside them, with Russian ICON Lev Yashin finalizing his squad as goalkeeper.

Despite not quite matching the squad of Erling Haaland, Grealish has a solid starting XI that would give any FIFA player a run for their money. 

It’s great to see he’s active in-game and constantly looking to improve his squad. Who knows, in a few months, Grealish may have made even more adjustments to his already impressive team.

It’s worth noting he’s only five legendary players away from a full team of ICONS and it’s fair to say that would be a sight to see. We’ll have to keep an eye out for Grealish on FIFA 21 and check out any upgrades he decides to implement.
