FOUND HIS FEET - Cancelo has been sensational this season

Since the start of the season, Cancelo has risen from 83 OVR to 85 and is now one of the top right-backs on the game in the latest squad update.

Unsurprisingly, Cancelo's vision, crossing and, passing have been upgraded. The Portuguese star has also had his agility and heading accuracy improved too.

Fellow City right-back Kyle Walker has seen his OVR fall in the latest update, making Cancelo the out and out best RB in Manchester.

Firmino drop continues

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has struggled to find the net this season, and his downgrades have continued in the latest update.

Having started FIFA 21 with an OVR of 87, Firmino's latest drop means he now sits at 85 OVR.

OUT OF FORM - Firmino's form has mirrored Liverpool's this season

Along with his OVR drop, Firmino has seen his Positioning drop -2 to 82 and drops of -1 to his Short Passing and Vision too.

Firmino is not the only high-profile Premier League star to be downgraded though, with Aymeric Laporte and Kyle Walker both taking slight hits.

FUT Winter Upgrades

When will we finally see some new basic cards or Winter Upgrades arrive on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team?


There are several players deserving of higher-rated base cards, including Joao Cancelo who has already improved +2 away from Ultimate Team.

West Ham stars Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice and Jesse Lingard could all be included in any upgrades too.

Outside of the Premier League, AC Milan's Theo Hernandez should be one of the game's top left-backs as he is having an excellent time in Serie A.
