FIFA 18 – January Player of the Month (POTM) Nominees
The Premier League has announced their nominees for the January Player of the Month, but who will win the public vote and that all-important FIFA 18 POTM Ultimate Team Card.
ORIGINAL STORY – The Premier League has today announced their contenders for the Premier League January Player of the Month award and as always this means another vote to decide who should win and also receive a special POTM Ultimate Team card in FIFA 18.
Up for the award in January is Chelsea's Eden Hazard, Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne (again!) and Sergio Aguero, Spurs pair Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen alongside Bournemouth's Callum Wilson.
For those that don't know, FIFA 18 gets involved with the Player of the Month celebrations by revealing a special FIFA Ultimate Team card with increased stats to reflect the achievements of the Premier League Player of the Month Winner.
There's normally a new SBC (squad building challenge) for FIFA 18 players to complete to obtain this special card.
The last POTM award was given to Spur's Harry Kane and unfortunately, the only other way to obtain the card is through the in-game transfer market.
For a reminder of why these players have been picked above all others, take a look at the gallery below to see their real-life stats from January.
