FIFA 20: 5 players who EA Sports desperately need to upgrade in Ultimate Team

Jadon Sancho, Nicolas Pepe and Krzysztof Piatek can expect improved ratings in FIFA 20

A host of players can expect to receive significant upgrades in EA Sports’ FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

Having been awarded numerous special cards throughout the course of FIFA 19, the base items of the likes of Jadon Sancho and Krzysztof Piatek are just two who deserve to be given overhauls at the start of FIFA 20.

Here are five players we believe are due upgrades in FIFA 20

Could we see these upgrades from the start of FIFA 20?

1 Nicolas Pepe

Pepe was the driving force behind Lile’s impressive Ligue 1 campaign in which they finished runners-up to PSG.

The Ivorian has become a transfer target for a number of Europe’s biggest clubs after an outrageous return of 21 goals and 12 assists for the season.

The 23-year-old started life in FIFA 19 as a 75-rated card, but we expect to see him boosted up to at least the 83-rated mark at the start of FIFA 20.

2 Luka Jovic

You’ll struggle to find a more lethal finisher

Jovic has enjoyed an unbelievable season leading the line for Eintracht Frankfurt – helping himself to 27 goals and seven assists in all competitions.

The Serbian has now made his move from Benfica a permanent one, but is already rumoured to be attracting interest from Real Madrid.

Nobody could have predicted the immense form that the 21-year-old would show this season, with his base card on FIFA 19 starting out as a 75-rated non rare.
Jovic can expect a boost up to the mid 80 mark for his FIFA 20 card and will surely have some of the best shooting stats around.

3 Matteo Guendouzi

The metronome Frenchman is so much more than just an impressive haircut

It felt wrong not to include a silver representative on here, so for that reason Guendouzi makes the list.

The Arsenal man had a debut season to remember in north London after his move from Ligue 2 side Lorient.

Guendouzi was a relative unknown before joining the Gunners – hence his modest 67-rated silver card upon his arrival.

However, after the Frenchman showed everyone that he’s more than capable of toughing it in the Premier League, it seems only fair that he’s boosted up to a 75-rated gold – nothing more than that though.

4 Jadon Sancho

The king of assists

Sancho has been one of the Bundesliga’s most exciting talents this season and is in desperate need of an Ultimate Team card to reflect that in FIFA 20.

We’re all familiar with the winger’s impressive 5* skill moves, but his base card on FIFA 19 – a 72-rated silver, left little to be desired.

After picking himself up a host of special cards throughout the season, Sancho should expect to see his FIFA 20 rating boosted up to around the 83 mark.

5 Krzysztof Piatek

Cut-throat mentality in front of goal is what he’s known for

Piatek is undoubtedly one of the success stories of the season.

The striker stunned Serie A with his goal-scoring antics after his move to Genoa from Polish side Cracovia for a fee of just €4million.

The 24-year-old then earned himself a January move to AC Milan and his superb form hasn’t slowed down in the slightest at the San Siro.

Not the most mobile of strikers, Piatek’s FIFA 20 card should reflect his unrivalled finishing ability and clever attacking movement.
