Chelsea FC midfield star Mason Mount has had his FIFA 21 Ultimate team starting XI revealed — and it might have exposed his secret desire to line up with the Liverpool squad!

It’s no secret that most of the younger up and coming players in the Premier League and around the world are also dedicated FIFA players, always looking to build out their Ultimate Team squads to be as strong as possible.

For example, in recent weeks we’ve seen the likes of Erling Haaland also have their FUT squads revealed, with the Norwegian star himself housing an ICON-laden team full only of the very best players available in the game.

Mount, though, has gone for a slightly different approach to building out his squad, which definitely seems heavily inspired by his experiences in the real world of football.

Mason Mount is one of Chelsea’s most prominent players — but he might have bigger aspirations.

In his squad, which was found by charrisard on Reddit, Mason Mount has surrounded himself with more familiar faces than legendary ICON cards, but it will have Chelsea fans a little nervous, as it is full almost exclusively of current Liverpool players.

Here’s Mason Mount’s FIFA 21 Ultimate Team starting XI:

  • GK: Alisson — 90
  • RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold — 87
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk — 90
  • CB: Joe Gomez — 83
  • LB: Andy Robertson — 87
  • CM: Patrick Vieira — 88
  • CM: Ruud Gullit — 90
  • CAM: Mason Mount — 99
  • RW: Mohamed Salah — 90
  • LW: Sadio Mane — 90
  • ST: Ronaldo — 94

It goes without saying that this is perhaps the most Liverpool players you’ll see in any professional player’s squad, especially one that isn’t even a Liverpool player himself.

That said, it’s still a decent team, with plenty of firepower at both ends of the pitch, so is still likely to be a solid squad even if it doesn’t quite conform to the meta.

Does this mean Mount is a closet Liverpool fan? Could he be testing his mettle alongside the Premier League champions to see how he fits in alongside them? The Merseyside team could be looking at some new central midfielders next season… maybe Mount is crossing his fingers for the big move.

EA SPORTS has unveiled a new Ultimate Team Flashback SBC for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain, and we’ve got the requirements, cheapest solutions, total cost, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete it quickly and cheaply.

It’s been a few weeks but we’ve finally received another Flashback SBC in FUT, this time for storied Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain who now plays stateside for Inter Miami.

This new card is meant to celebrate his prolific 2009-2010 LaLiga Santander season where Higuain scored 29 total goals to lead Real Madrid in the category and have the second most in LaLiga behind Messi himself. It’s typically considered a high point in his career and that’s certainly reflected in this card’s upgraded stats.

Everything you need to unlock this new Flashback item can be found below, starting with the in-game stats, to help you determine whether or not he’s worth it.

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC in-game stats

Stats for Higuain’s new Flashback card.

First things first, Gonzalo’s Pace has been supercharged here, going from 65 on his current Gold card to 89 here, an increase of 24 points overall.

Dribbling also gets a decent upgrade up to 86 from 80, and Shooting is at 88 here instead of 85 like normal. This card is easily a massive upgrade, but it’s up to you to decide if the price is right.

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC requirements & cost

As far as SBCs go, this one is fairly cheap, compared to some others that we’ve seen come out lately. All together it should run you about 80,000 to 95,000 FUT to complete, depending on which platform you play on.

That being said, there is only one set of requirements to knock out as well if you decide to unlock this card. Here are the requirements:

  • Number of players from Real Madrid: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 65
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC cheapest solutions

Here are the two cheapest solutions we could find for this SBC, neither requiring any loyalty or position change cards.

Gonzalo Higuain Flashback SBC expiration date

If you’re still on the fence about completing this SBC, you don’t have that much time to make up your mind as it will only be around for another 7 days until Saturday, January 23.
