January’s Premier League Player of the Month has been officially revealed, but we already knew it would be Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea!

Various leaks shared the news well in advance, but now EA has released the new card into the game.

Take a look at the card and how to unlock it for your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

Premier League Player of the Month

David De Gea is the first Premier League Player of the Month in 2022 after an outstanding run of games between the posts for the Red Devils.

The Spaniard has plenty of critics, but even they can't argue that the former Spanish number one is deserving of the award.

De Gea's display against Brentford alone is enough to warrant selection, and he has been rewarded with an excellent new 87 OVR card in FUT 22.

You have plenty of time to unlock the new card, and it is easily affordable too, so this is a great SBC from EA.

December Player of the Month

Five goals and an assist in December were enough for Raheem Sterling to win the final Player of the Month award of 2021.

As a result of Sterling's latest personal accolade, the England international has a brilliant new item available to unlock in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
