This will be the third year we have seen the Future Stars promo on FIFA Ultimate Team.

The previous two editions have seen some great cards, but which players did EA rightly pick as Future Stars?

Take a look at three stars from FIFA 19's Future Stars that are living up to their potential, and two who are yet to do so!

Three of the Best

We felt it was unfair to judge last year's players, so we have gone back to FIFA 19 for these Future Stars that are at the top of their game.

Take a look at who we think EA will include in our Future Stars Prediction.

Jadon Sancho

Borussia Dortmund and England winger Jadon Sancho received a 90 OVR Future Stars card back on FIFA 19.

EA nailed this one, with Sancho now rated 87 OVR, a +9 improvement from FIFA 19.

Sancho provided 34 goal involvements in the Bundesliga last season, showcasing his quality.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Another young English star EA got right, Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold.

A mere 78 OVR on FIFA 19, TAA is now the best right back on the game with an OVR of 87!

Still just 22-years-old, Alexander-Arnold has already won the Champions League and Premier League with his boyhood club.

Ferland Mendy

French left back Ferland Mendy may not have hit the heights of the previous two on this list, but he still ranks in the success list for us.

Originally a 77 OVR on FIFA 19, Real Madrid splashed over £40 million to bring him to the Spanish capital.

Mendy is now a strong 83 OVR, just 4 away from his Future Stars rating of 87.

Yet to Fire

While EA have picked some top stars in the past, they have also been wide of the mark with some too.

Take a look at these two players who are yet to reach the lofty heights EA expected.

Patrick Cutrone

Italian forward Patrick Cutrone was one of the best Future Stars players back on FIFA 19.

Cutrone is yet to hit the heights that EA predicted when they gave him an 89 OVR.

After signing for Wolves for £25 million, Cutrone has been shipped out on loan to Serie A and most recently La Liga without much success.

Brazilian striker Joelinton was rated just 69 OVR on FIFA 19. In the same season, Joelinton scored seven and assisted another seven for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.

This prompted Newcastle to fork out nearly £40 million to bring him to St James' Park.

Since his arrival in England, Joelinton has struggled to live up to his price tag, scoring just three Premier League goals in 54 appearances.
