Predictions

We know that the squad will focus on those players that have had a fast start to their campaigns in real life, but who will EA select?

We've had three players teased already, one from Monaco, one centre forward and one Brazilian. You can find our predictions for those cards here.

The likes of Bruno Fernandes and Heung Min Son are likely to be in with a shout after a fantastic start to their respective Premier League campaigns.

Could we see a second consecutive Headliners appearance for Robert Lewandowski? With two informs already this year, it could happen.

Ratings

So how exactly do the FUT Headliners ratings work?

Headliners are essentially another batch of One to Watch players, with each Headliner card receiving an upgrade each time that player picks up a special card - TOTW, MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team Of The Tournament - until the end of their domestic season.

There's the potential for some BIG upgrades here, will you be investing in one?
