FIFA 20 is here and the first Player of the Month award for the MLS is upon us. Who will be the league’s first player to achieve this award in the new game?
These cards can be unlocked on FIFA Ultimate Team but only via various Squad Building Challenges (SBCs), making the POTM an expensive item to get hold of. The winner will be selected after a public vote, so you can have your say on who should think take the prize and the boosted Ultimate Team card.
RealSport looks at the contenders for September’s award.
Carlos Vela (OVR 83 – POTM 89)
A contender for the first FIFA 20 MLS POTM could be Carlos Vela scoring four goals in four games for Los Angeles FC. Although, they won only one of those four fixtures, Vela is the main man when it comes to scoring goals for the Black and Gold.
The former Arsenal man should see his 83 overall improve to a POTM rating of 89, with the right winger’s base card costing 1,800 coins on PS4 and 2,200 on Xbox One in Ultimate Team.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (OVR 85 – POTM 90)
Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has started the MLS season with a bang and we can expect the living legend to be up for the POTM award after netting seven times in six games. The big Swede has highlighted why he is one of the best attacking forwards in the States, causing Manchester United and Boca Junior to bve linked with the player.
Zlatan is likely to improve from an 85 overall to a 90 POTM if he is voted in, with his base card priced at 5,700 on PS4 and 6,000 on Xbox One.
Nani (OVR 80 – POTM 88)
Another former Premier League star Nani has settled in at life for his second season at Orlando City. The ex Manchester United man almost matched Vela’s and Ibrahimovic’s efforts with three goals in four games and one assist. The Portuguese has both a five star weak foot and skills, if he manages to secure the MLS POTM card in FIFA 20, this will be a beast to include.
An 80 overall for Nani is likely to reach 88 if he takes the award, with the left winger’s base card worth 700 coins on PS4 and 750 on Xbox One.
Uriel Antuna (OVR 68 – POTM 80)
68 rated LA Galaxy left midfielder has managed to bag himself four goals in six games with two assists. This is almost unheard of in the silver rated card section on FIFA, although only winning three out of six games the Mexican has conveyed why he deserves a shot at earning himself the MLS POTM card for September!
With his 68 rated card looking to increase to 80 if he wins the award. His base card costs 450 coins on PS4 and 850 on Xbox One.
Josef Alexander Martinez (OVR 81 – POTM 90)
The Striker from Venezuela is flying high at the moment with three goals in three games, securing two wins out the three for Atlanta United. The pacey forward has portrayed his skills and finishing abilities so far in the season. Will he be able to keep it up as the season enteres the playoff stage?
His 81 rated base card will look to rise to 90 if he is able to secure the POTM card for himself. His base card is worth 700 coins on both PS4 and Xbox One.
