EA Sports Reveals Team Of The Year For FIFA 19 Ultimate Team

EA Sports has finally revealed FIFA 19's Team of the Year for Ultimate Team.

Manchester United's David de Gea has secured his spot as the side's number one 'keeper, beating the likes of Liverpool's Alisson, Atlético Madrid's Jan Oblak, Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois and Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris.

Team of the Year, which is set up in a 4-3-3 formation, has a backline that consists of three Madrid stars -- Marcelo, club captain Sergio Ramos and Raphaël Varane (who has been moved to right-back) -- and the Reds' Virgil van Dijk.

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, Chelsea's N'Golo Kanté and Los Blancos' Luka Modrić, who was the 2018 Ballon d'Or winner, make up the deadly midfield trio.

Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo has taken up his spot on the left wing -- a position that he is all too familiar with -- while inaugural Kopa Trophy winner and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé is on the right wing.

Of course, that leaves none other than Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi to complete the attacking trident.

Team of the Year hits Ultimate Team at 6:00 p.m. GMT today.

FIFA 19 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
