FIFA 19 Ones to Watch Summer Edition Rules

How the FIFA 19 Ones to Watch Summer Edition Works?

FIFA 19 Ones to Watch Summer Edition Guide

Based on what happened last year, these are the official rules we expect to see in FIFA 19:

RULE 1
THE PLAYERS

The 23 players selected for the FIFA 19 Ones to Watch Summer Edition must be some of the most promising players who have been permanently transferred between clubs in the most recent Summer transfer window and are also under the age of 30.

RULE 2
THE BOOST

FIFA 19 Ones to Watch Summer Edition cards boost in rating and stats every time a player gets a new item from a selection of a few special cards:

2.1. The rating will match the highest TOTW, MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team of the Tournament selections card or, if it doesn’t exist, the regular card.
2.2. Ones to Watch cards are not affected by POTM, Award Winner, SBC, or other in game event selection.
2.3. The ratings of OTW cards are automatically updated as soon as a new card mentioned on 2.1 gets released.
2.4. The ratings update automatically, whether they are in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market.
2.5. The TOTW, MOTM, Hero, TOTT or Record Breaker cards a player received on his old club don’t affect the rating and the stats of his OTW card.

RULE 3
TRANSFERS

If an OTW player is transferred/loaned to a different club, the type attributes and latest TOTW in-form rating will be unaffected. However, his OTW player item type will remain at the players previous club until he gets a TOTW, MOTM, Hero or Record Breaker in-form at which point the player’s club, crest and dynamic image will be updated.

3.1. If a OTW player transfers/goes on loan to a club not in FUT19, his OTW player type will remain at the club he was previously at and his OTW item will not receive any further upgrades.

RULE 4
POSITIONS

If a Ones To Watch Player’s TOTW, MOTM, TOTT, Hero or Record Breaker in-form is in a different position to their Ones To Watch item, the OTW will keep unchanged. He will, however, continue to receive any attribute upgrades from that and future in-forms.

FIFA 19 Ones to Watch – Player by Player

Who are the OTW Players?

FIFA 19 Ones to Watch Summer Edition Guide

85 🇧🇷 GK: Alisson (Liverpool)
The Brazilian shot-stopper joined UEFA Champions League finalists Liverpool this summer as the Merseyside club looked to shore up its defence in the hopes of continuing last season’s form. Still quite young, Alisson already has buckets of experience at the highest level, including a starting role for Brazil between the posts in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

84 🇵🇹 RB: João Cancelo (Juventus)
Portuguese right-back Cancelo joined his countryman Ronaldo with a move to Juventus after a strong loan performance at Inter Milan last season. Possessed with phenomenal speed, Cancelo is exceptional in the attack, especially when overlapping and combining with attacking teammates. But the Portuguese isn’t just an offensive weapon; his height and strength give him the tools he needs to be a great defender.

81 🇭🇷 RB: Šime Vrsaljko (Inter)
Coming off a strong World Cup with Croatia that he capped with a start in the final against France, right-back Vrsaljko is ready to impress on his return to Serie A with Italian giants Inter Milan. Physically strong in the air and a fierce tackler, Vrsaljko also racked up the second-most assists for Atlético Madrid during his two years in the Spanish capital.

84 🇬🇷 CB: Sokratis (Arsenal)
The big defender made the move to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund this summer as part of new Gunners manager Unai Emery’s push to shore up his back line. The Greek center back is quite well-rounded; his defensive work rate is high, and his tackling is superb, but Sokratis is also an extremely accurate passer that can play the ball out from the back to kick off counterattacks.

81 🇸🇳 CB: Salif Sané (FC Schalke 04)
Fresh off a transfer to Schalke 04 from rivals Hannover 96, the center back is set to play a big role in his club’s backline. Physically imposing at nearly two meters tall and a talented dribbler to boot, Sané impressed for Senegal at the 2018 World Cup and showed just why he was in such high demand in the Bundesliga. Look for him to form a fierce defensive partnership with Schalke teammate Naldo.

85 🇧🇪 CM: Radja Nainggolan (Inter)
Having played in Italy for his entire professional career, the fearsome midfielder nicknamed Il Ninjajoined Inter Milan this summer after several strong seasons with Roma. A complete midfielder equally proficient at winning the ball and creating chances at the opposite end for his teammates, Nainggolan will be hoping to raise his profile even more by impressing at his new club.

84 🇮🇹 CM: Jorginho (Chelsea)
After a few years of helping Napoli become one of the most-feared clubs in Serie A, the Brazilian-born Italy international Jorginho transferred to Chelsea along with former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri. The king of composure in midfield, Jorginho is the model of a modern playmaker, pulling the strings and controlling the tempo of a match with pinpoint passing and creative vision.

83 🇬🇳 CM: Naby Keïta (Liverpool)
Despite making a deal to join Liverpool in 2017, Guinean international Keita played the 2017-18 season with RB Leipzig before joining the Merseyside giants ahead of this season. Even a few matches into the season, it’s clear what Jurgen Klopp and his staff saw in Keita: a versatile, talented midfielder who manages to pop up in the right place at the right time. Whether snatching the ball from an opposing attacker or pinging a diagonal pass across the pitch to a winger, Keita can do it all.

83 🇩🇪 CM: Leon Goretzka (FC Bayern)
German international Goretzka continued his meteoric rise with a move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich this summer, where his versatility in midfield could make him a valuable asset. If he can find the right role utilizing his defensive ability and his willingness to attack, he could help Bayern snatch yet another title this season.

82 🇧🇪 CM: Axel Witsel (Borussia Dortmund)
Following a brief tenure at China’s Tianjin Quanjian, the Belgian midfielder moved back to Europe this summer, to German giants Borussia Dortmund. He can play in just about any midfield role, but Witsel thrives when tasked with a defensive-minded position that lets his strength and tackling ability shine.

79 🇷🇺 CM: Alexandr Golovin (AS Monaco)
Young Russian international Golovin left his first and only professional club this summer when he made the leap to Monaco in Ligue 1 after dazzling in front of massive home crowds during the 2018 World Cup. A playmaker of the highest caliber, Golovin is at home with the ball at his feet and an unsuspecting defender to beat.

82 🇧🇷 CDM: Fred (Manchester United)
Brazilian midfielder Fred honed his skills in Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk for five seasons before Manchester United secured a move for him ahead of this season. Despite flying under the radar during some of his time at Donetsk, he built a solid reputation as an incisive passer and strong dribbler in the Ukrainian Premier League and UEFA Champions League.

85 🇩🇿 RM: Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City)
Mahrez cemented his place as a legend at Leicester City after his heroics helped lead the club to their historic title win in 2016, but now he’s up for a challenge after moving to last year’s Premier League champions, Manchester City. A versatile attacker that usually starts on the wing, the Algerian’s combination of a silky first touch, deft passing ability, and an eye for goal could be enough to see him break into a very talented City squad this season.

83 🇧🇷 RW: Malcom (FC Barcelona)
Brazilian winger Malcom impressed so much for Bordeaux in Ligue 1 the last few seasons that he earned himself a dream move to Barcelona. Often praised for his speed and athleticism, Malcom stands out with his creative passing and shooting potential, both of which Barcelona fans will be hoping to see more of as he dons the iconic jersey this season.

77 🇧🇷 LW: Richarlison (Everton)
It didn’t take long for young Brazilian forward Richarlison to impress in England—after just one season with Watford, Everton spent big this summer to bring him to Merseyside. Strong, intelligent, and a top-class finisher when at his best, RIcharlison will prove himself to be worth every penny if he can combine those talents and stay in consistent form over the course of the season.

83 🇫🇷 LM: Thomas Lemar (Atlético de Madrid)
Despite rampant speculation before last season, one of the hottest commodities in world football stayed at Monaco for the 2017-18 season. However, the French midfielder finally made his high-profile move thissummer, heading to Atlético Madrid to join countrymen Antoine Greizmann and Lucas Hernández in the Spanish capital. Though mainly a left-footed player, Lemar thrives anywhere in the attack that lets him use his excellent technique and long-range shooting.

83 🇳🇱 LM: Quincy Promes (Sevilla FC)
After beginning his career in his native Netherlands with FC Twente, Promes moved to Spartak Moscow, where his speed and technique made him a fan favorite. But as he continued to improve, Promes decided to accept a move to LaLiga club Sevilla ahead of the 2018-19 season. If his flashy moves and goalscoring prowess continues, Promes could be one of the most exciting players to watch in Europe this year.

82 🇧🇷 LM: Felipe Anderson (West Ham United)
Yet another Brazilian who made a notable move this summer, attacking midfielder Anderson ended his long tenure with Lazio to join West Ham United in the English Premier League. Quick with the ball at his feet and a highly-skilled dribbler, Anderson will likely be given plenty of freedom to create and score goals at his new club.

94 🇵🇹 ST: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
By far the hottest transfer in world football, Ronaldo’s move from Real Madrid to Juventus this summer sent shockwaves through the sporting community. Having already conquered the English Premier League, LaLiga, and the UEFA Champions League, Ronaldo has his sights set on silverware in Serie A this season.

88 🇦🇷 ST: Gonzalo Higuaín (AC Milan)
After two solid seasons with Juventus, the Argentine striker was sent to Serie A rivals Milan on loan for the season. Higuain continues to be one of the most hardworking, prolific strikers in the game right now, and he will be eager to prove himself—especially against his parent club—this season.

81 🇷🇺 ST: Fedor Smolov (Lokomotiv Moskva)
The two-time Russian Premier League top scorer made waves after his transfer to Lokomotiv Moscow, where he and his new club will be hoping that he can pick up even more accolades. Adept at attacking, Smolov is at his best when given opportunities in front of goal—he’s as proficient at finishing with both feet as he is with his head.

80 🇩🇴 ST: Mariano (Real Madrid)
After a strong season with Lyon in Ligue 1 last year in which he scored 18 league goals, Mariano returned to former club Real Madrid, where he spent a number of seasons bouncing around the B and C squads since joining the organization early in his career. Since he never really broke into the Los Blancosfirst team during his time there, Mariano is ready to prove himself to the reigning Champions League winners.

75 🇫🇷 ST: Moussa Dembélé (Olympique Lyonnais)
French forward Dembélé honed his skills with Fulham in the early part of his career, but it was two brilliant seasons in the Scottish Premier League with Celtic that put him on the radars of clubs all over Europe. Dembélé chose to return to the country of his birth with Lyon, where his height, strength, and finishing ability will come in handy as he combines with the talented and creative attackers around him.
