West Ham star finally gets much-deserved Player of the Month award

April’s Premier League Player of the Month (POTM) has been revealed on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it is England and West Ham dynamo Jesse Lingard who has picked up the award.

Lingard has been awarded a new 87 OVR card and it looks to be a great value SBC.

Take a look at the new card and how to unlock it below.

Player of the Month

West Ham have gone from relegation favourites to Champions League contenders this season, and Jesse Lingard has certainly played his part.

Having arrived in January, Lingard has been nominated for three Player of the Month awards in a row, finally picking up the main prize in April.

Lingard scored four goals and provided an assist last month and is certainly deserving of the award and a new rating on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

The Hammers’ chances of Champions League qualification now look slim, but any European football would be a great achievement for David Moyes’ side.

You will need to submit just one squad to unlock Lingard’s new POTM card, and you have four weeks to do so.

The requirements are as follows:

Jesse Lingard

  1. Minimum 1 Premier League player
  2. Minimum 85 Team Rating
  3. Minimum 70 Team Chemistry

1 x POTM Premier League Lingard

Estimated Cost – 125k

Worth it?

At this stage of the season, an 87 OVR card is unlikely to feature in your squad. However, according to Futbin, Lingard should actually have a 90 OVR.

Either at CAM or CF Lingard looks like a great card.

We would opt for a Hawk or Hunter chemistry style just to up his pace slightly, but the marksman style sets his stats to a 95 OVR CF!

If you have the cards to complete this challenge then by all means do, but with Team of the Season Mason Mount available, the Chelsea star is a better option.
