Harry Maguire given one of the biggest upgrades ever on EA FC 24 after winning Premier League POTM
| Last updated
Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has been handed a huge upgrade on EA FC 24 after being named as the Premier League Player of the Month for November.
Maguire played three matches without conceding a goal last month as United beat Fulham, Luton and Everton, and topped the division in several key defensive statistics.
The 30-year-old has continued his resurgence after being left out of the side at the beginning of the season, and has now replaced Raphael Varane on his preferred right side of defence.
His performances meant he earned a nomination for the Player of the Month award, and was announced as its winner on Thursday.
Each winner of the reward receives a special SBC on EA FC 24, in which players can earn a POTM card for that specific player.
EA announced Maguire as the winner of the award on Friday morning - but fans immediately spotted something interesting about his card.
The centre-back's base card has 46 pace - a downgrade of two from the previous year.
But the pace stat of his POTM card has rocketed up to 82 - representing a stunning upgrade of 36.
Maguire's passing (seven) and dribbling (15) stats have also received major boosts, while his defending and physical is up by eight and six points respectively.
His SBC comes in at a respectable 84,000 coins, as per Futbin, with two segments to complete.
Players have until January 8 to complete the SBC, meaning you've got an entire month to collect the coins or players needed to submit both segments successfully.
After being announced as the winner of the November award, Maguire took to Instagram to comment: "Couldn't have done it without my team-mates, the staff and you fans.
"Your love and support doesn't go unnoticed. I appreciate it."
After an impressive performance in their 2-1 win over Chelsea on Wednesday, Maguire and his United team-mates will hope to make it two victories in a row on Saturday when they host Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
