Trent Alexander-Arnold's Trademark Whipped Cross Has Been Added To FIFA 21

Trent Alexander-Arnold's Trademark Whipped Cross Has Been Added To FIFA 21

A new way of crossing has been added to FIFA 21 thanks to EA enjoying the work of Liverpool and England sensation Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Arguably the best crosser in world football at the moment, the right-back has had plenty of comparisons with the legendary David Beckham of late for his sensational deliveries from wide areas.

The 21-year old laid on 13 assists for teammates in Liverpool's stunning Premier League winning campaign and his abilities have been so impressive that he has inspired a new crossing trajectory in the new FIFA game - where he is an ambassador and features in the reveal trailer.

The 'Whipped cross' will see " fast and dangerous" balls travel through the box" and are said to have perfect for attackers to just 'put their head in the way'.

Put simply, the work is all in the cross and it only needs the striker to add the final touch. Gamers can do their best Alexander-Arnold impression by R1/RB + L1/LB + square/X depending on your console of choice.

There's also a 'Driven Cross' that isn't all too different to a Trent special but will likely travel at waist height and sit perfectly for a volley. R1/RB + square/X for this one.

And then finally, by pressing R1/RB + square/X then square/X, we have the ground driven cross which again comes at some serious pace but travels on the ground.

These changes will give players more options in regards to crosses, while 'Manual Heading' will be mandatory heading in Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs, Seasons and Online Friendlies.

This means headers won't be assisted in any way and the focus will be on the aim and power used when performing the header. 'Assisted Headers' are still a thing in other modes but EA believe the tweak will lead to "more opportunities to use heading to create or convert offensive chances".
