Player Picks

The player picks have returned for Season Five, and they look to be the best yet.

There are three 86-rated players up for grabs at the halfway point of your progress, level 15.

And if you manage to complete the full season, you will have the choice of two 88's or an 89-rated player at level 30.

Level 15

Attacking stars are the focus at level 15, with a left winger, a central attacking midfielder and a striker to choose between.

Here is the full rundown.

Obafemi Martins (86 OVR)

Obafemi Martins has been a FUT star over the years, and he's back in the limelight in Season 5.

The Nigerian forward - who now plies his trade in China with the Wuhan Zall - is the first player you will have to consider.

As expected, Martins pace leads the way in terms of ratings (94 OVR), though 86-rated dribbling and 86-rated shooting isn't bad either!

He'd make a half decent super sub, but thats about as far as his potential goes 

Gfinity Rating - 3/5

Angel Gomes (86 OVR)

One for the Manchester United fans now, with former academy starlet Angel Gomes up for grabs.

The Englishman is currently in Portugal playing with Liga NOS side, Boavista FC.

The attacking midfielder has a well rounded card, with four of his six base stats 80+ rated. Gomes also possess' a four star weak foot and four star skills.

With a plethora of English talent already available in Ultimate Team, this wouldn't be a bad selection for those wanting a three lions side ahead of Euro 2021!

Tarique Fosu (86 OVR)

The final level 15 option is Brentford forward, Tarique Fosu.

The Ghanaian left winger is the latest EFL Championship player to recieve an upgraded card.

94-rated pace and 87-rated dribbling are the standout base stats, whilst four stats skills compliment the tricky winger nicely.

With a host of Championship players to build around Fosu, he could well be a popular choice.

Level 30

If you put in the graft and make it all the way to level 30, then there are some big rewards for you to choose between.

The Premier League, Serie A and Ligue 1 all feature in the final tiered rewards.

Eric Lamela (89 OVR)

The first option is the highest-rated of the bunch, and it's Spurs winger, Eric Lamela.

The Argentine has an 89-rated RM card that is sure to be a hit with FUT fans.

92-rated dribbling, 90-rated passing and 87-rated shooting make for an end game set of stats for the Spurs man.

We'll be seeing plenty of this card in Weekend League as the season progresses.

Gfinity Rating - 4.5/5

Jimmy Briand (88 OVR)

France is one of the most well represented nations in FUT this year, and EA have added yet another forward to the mix.

Bordeaux striker Jimmy Briand has an 88-rated card that is available for those who reach level 30.

90-rated pace and 89-rated shooting are the standout stats for Briand, who also possess' four star skills and a four star weak foot.

The perfect strike partner for a certain Kylian Mbappe perhaps?

Gfinity Rating - 4/5

Antonio Candreva (88 OVR)

The third and final option to consider is Italian right midfielder, Antonio Candreva.

Like Lamela, Candreva has an incredibly well rounded card, one which could work as a RM or further afield as a RW/RF.

91-rated dribbing and 90-rated pace are the standout stats for the Sampdoria man, who becomes the second highest rated Serie A RM as a result of this upgrade.

If you're in need of a Serie A midfielder, then Candreva could be the selection for you.
