EA Sports added a Showdown 85-rated version of James Milner from Liverpool to FIFA 21 today. It’s obtainable through FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s squad-building challenges (SBC) menu.

EA also added an 85-rated version of Scott McTominay from Manchester United. These players will play against each other on the real-world field on Jan. 17 and the winner will receive a +2 overall in-game upgrade.

EA has massively increased Milner’s Pace (+17) and Shooting (+13) skills and somewhat increased all of his other stats, including Dribbling (+5), Passing (+4), Physical (+4), and Defending (+2), when you compare the Showdown version to his 80-rated gold card.

This SBC costs around 205,050 FUT coins on PS4 and 220,150 FUT coins on Xbox One, but it’s a bit more expensive on PC (227,600 FUT coins). Showdown Milner is fairly priced considering his high Passing and Shooting ability and you can improve his Pace (+9) stat with the Shadow chemistry style, alongside his Defending (+9).

If you want to complete the Showdown Milner SBC, you’ll have to complete three squads: Liverpool, National Duty, and Top Form. The first one requires an 83-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum and at least one player from Liverpool. The second one asks for an 84-rated squad with 65 chemistry minimum and at least one player from England.

The third and last option needs an 84-rated squad with 65 chemistry minimum and at least one Inform. This SBC will expire on Jan. 17 before Liverpool and Manchester United face off at 10:30am CT.
