Who to pick?

This is a tricky one!

In terms of which player is going to be better on FIFA, you’d probably have to edge towards Fabinho given how good he is in game on his base card, let alone a 92-rated (potentially 95-rated) Summer Heat card!

But for Phil, it’s a huge 16-rating jump from his base card and this is also a very nice card. In all honesty it might be worth completing them both based on their base ratings alone, let along with the potential for either to jump up to a 95 if their team wins!

But who will win? It’s a tricky one. Liverpool have been by far the best team in the league this season, taking Manchester City’s title off them at a canter but, Guardiola is a born winner. His side has already won the Carabao Cup and are still in the hunt for the FA Cup and the Champions League as we reach the latter stages of the season.

If you had to press me for a winner – because don’t forget as it’s a league match these sides could draw, which would result in both players jumping from a 92 to a 93 – I would probably just side with Manchester City given that they are at ‘home’ – albeit without any fans.

Either way, they are two very good cards and one is set to become incredible come Thursday night!
