The EFL Championship is becoming quite the league on Ultimate Team, with this Daryl Horgan card the latest of high profile additions to England's second tier.

With 88-rated pace, 85-rated dribbling and 82-rated passing, this card can do a job on the right flank and offers great links to the likes of End of an Era Wayne Rooney and What If Adam Armstrong.

The Premier League is littered with stars in the central midfield role, so it's unlikely that Jeff Hendrick will get a look in for many sides.

That being said, with a well rounded, 85-rated card, the Newsacstle man isn't bad at all. If you're looking to encoporate any of the Irish stars - including Objective McGeady - into your side, then he's not a bad shout.

The cream of the Irish crop is Brighton's Aaron Connolly.

The Albion forward has an 86-rated card that includes 88-rated pace and 86-rated shooting. He's not the best the Prem has to offer but hey, he's free!

Objective Tips

You're going to have to play a minimum of 14 matches if you want these three men in your squad.

Here are our tips to complete them as quickly as possible.

Thankfully, none of the Objectives should be too strenuous to complete, and you only require four ROI players as opposed to a full squad in years past.

That said, don't scrimp out on the Irish players you select. The market has fluctutated as a result of the new Objectives, but we still recommend picking up usable players such as Shane Long, Robby Brady and Jeff Hendrick to make your life easier.

Completing the Aiden McGeady Objectives first would be a good idea too, as his card could prove invaluable in this set of Foundation Objectives.

Try and help out the community by boosting too, as it will decrease your play time significantly.
