CDM James will be a FUT Weekend League nightmare

Future Stars Team 2 is set to launch later today, but we've already had three players confirmed.

Giovanni Reyna, Diogo Dalot and Reece James will all be staying put, but switching positions to give you a different option to consider.

It's the latter we're focusing on here, Chelsea star, Reece James.

CDM James

The Chelsea man featured in Team 1 as a right-back - his natural position - but for Team 2 it's a switch to midfield as James is set to become a CDM.

ENFORCER - James will be a force to be reckoned with

His ability on the ball bodes well for a move to the centre of the park, but is this a card you should consider for your Ultimate Team?

Here are some key things to consider.


James X Kante

N'Golo Kante is one of the very best defensive midfielders on FIFA 21, and now he's got the perfect midfield partner.

The perfect link between James and Kante is perfect for those who are trying to build a hybrid of any description, and you won't have to sacrifice quality to fit James in.

GOOD COMPANY - James' DEF and PHY stats put him amongst some BIG names

89-rated defending and 88-rated physicality means that James will be one of the very best defensive midfielders in the game, and undoubtedly the best in the Premier League.

He won't be cheap, but he'll be a BEAST.


End of an Era Rooney

Let's not forget about James' nationality either.

The Englishman would be perfect for anyone trying to find a way of fitting End of an Era Wayne Rooney into their side, with the striker one of the hottest forwards in FIFA 21 currently.

WAZZA - Rooney's End of an Era card is CRACKED

His perfect link to fellow Future Star Harvey Barnes would help significantly, and if we're on the money with our Future Stars Bukayo Saka prediction, then it could be quite the English force.



This card is going to be one of the standout picks of Team 2, and one that you simply can't miss out on.
