12th Man Nominees

As in previous years, the 12th man vote came in the form of ‘player pick votes.’

When you log in to Ultimate Team, you got to choose one player to add to your squad on loan and this will count as your vote.

The players included in the vote were made up of those who narrowly missed out on the TOTY XI.

Spurs winger Heung-Min Son is a vastly popular footballer, and a very good one too! But the FUT community didn't pick Son this year.

The final player you could have opted for is Thiago. He may not have hit top form at Liverpool, but few can argue his impact at Bayern last season.

TOTY KDB, Fernandes and Thiago would have taken some stopping!
