Welcome to our first Market Analysis of December!

Is there a better way to kick off the festive season than by looking at the significant changes from both the PS4 and Xbox One FUT markets? No, we didn’t think so either.

Each percentage movement is as of 00:00am UK time this morning and was correct at the time of writing. All information has been sourced from FUTBIN.


Price Rises

If you have any of these players, now is the time to sell!

Anderson Talisca – 2700 coins (+42.11%) Xbox One

Anderson Talisca is probably best known for his tenure at Portuguese club, Benfica – however, the Brazilian has been playing for Guangzhou Evergrande in China since summer 2018, contributing a massive 32 goals and 11 assists in 45 appearances for the club.

In Ultimate Team, his Xbox One price has shot up by over 40%. With 86 positioning and 84 ball control, Talisca is a smart footballer – but it’s his 88 long shots and 84 shot power which demonstrate how deadly he can be on the edge of the box. At just 2700 coins, the Brazilian is still a good buy and his price may increase further.

DeAndre Yedlin – 1200 coins (+20.04%) PS4

DeAndre Yedlin’s start to the 2019/20 season has been plagued with injury, as the American is currently sidelined with a hip injury. However, this has not deterred FIFA players from buying Yedlin’s card.

His defensive stats of 72 sliding tackle and 75 standing tackle may not be the strongest, but his 92 sprint speed more than makes up for it. With a pacey wing back who can overlap the advanced winger being so crucial in modern play styles, it’s unsurprising that Yedlin’s price has risen.


Callum Hudson-Odoi – 2900 coins (+26.10%) Xbox One

Hudson-Odoi has been a breakthrough player for Chelsea this season, getting himself one goal and four assists across 13 appearances for Chelsea’s first team.

With stats of 86 acceleration, 84 sprint speed and 82 dribbling, it’s evident why the 18 year old’s silver card is in high demand, leading to a price inflation.

Leon Bailey – 1200 coins (+20.04%) PS4

Leon Bailey is an absolute pace merchant. With sprint speed of 90 and 86 agility, it’s no wonder FUT players are opting to utilise his talents on the left channel, resulting in his price increase.

However, If the Jamaican winger doesn’t fit in to your plans, now is the time to cash in on the Jamaican.


Price Drops

It could be time to pick up these stars on the cheap.

DeAndre Yedlin – 1400 coins (-17.66%) Xbox One

That’s right, PS4’s top price riser is also the Xbox One’s biggest dropper. DeAndre Yedlin’s price dropped to 850 coins on Xbox a few weeks ago and has since recovered – however, the defender’s card is now back on the decline.

If Yedlin’s price fluctuations over the last several weeks prove anything, it’s that his price is bound to bounce back above 1400 coins, so investing in the American could lead to a tidy profit.

Ante Rebic – 1500 coins (-16.67%) Xbox One

Ante Rebic is currently on a two year loan at AC Milan, from German club Frankfurt. The Croatian featured in last week’s market analysis as a price riser, so his price drop is unsurprising.

On FIFA 20, Rebic has 91 sprint speed, 85 shot power and 84 aggression. A great player for 1500 coins, who will no doubt see his price bounce back.

Coutinho – 16,500 coins (-13.16%) PS4

Coutinho has had a steady start to life in Germany, contributing three goals and three assists in 12 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern. His stats of 90 dribbling, 88 long shots and 86 vision reflect the left winger’s quality. 

However, considering we reported Coutinho’s PS4 price was at 68,000 coins way back at the start of October, the Brazilian has experienced a monumental price drop. 16,500 coins is a steal for an 86 rated winger, so he could well be worth picking up.

Miralem Pjanic – 15,000 coins (-13.04%) PS4

When it comes to Miralem Pjanic, not much needs to be said. The Bosnian footballer has has carved out a reputation for himself as one of the best central midfielders in the world, throughout his years of service at Piemonte (Juve).

His FIFA 20 stats reflect this with 88 vision, 91 short passing and 89 ball control. This is just about the best price you’ll get for the midfield maestro, so pick him up now.
