The big one is here — EA SPORTS has finally lifted the lid on the Premier League Team of the Season, and it’s an absolute doozy; De Bruyne, Fernandes, Kane, and more have all been given the TOTS nod in the stacked FUT lineup.
It’s like Christmas in FIFA when Team of the Season arrives — if you set aside “FUTMAS,” that is — and the end of the 2020/21 season is just the same.
Over the next few weeks, Dexerto is tipping bumper squads for La Liga, Serie A, and the Bundesliga — the last of which is already open for voting — to land in Ultimate Team. A raft of objectives and SBCs are on the menu too.
Now it’s time for the big one: the Premier League team is here, with mega upgrades for some of the game’s biggest names.
And, like always, it’s absolutely mouthwatering.
Premier League TOTS released
Fifteen Premier League stars were included in the team’s starting lineup, while a handful more will be released in objectives and SBCs
A quartet of 96-rated cards headline the main squad. First up is title-bound Kevin De Bruyne, who has been a pivotal part of City’s march to their fifth English crown in just nine years.
Behind him are three more Premier League superstars; Mohamed Salah, Bruno Fernandes, and golden boot fave Harry Kane.
In the forwards, FIFA 21 terror Rashford got a massive “93” boost.
