Just five days before a major Premier League matchup between Liverpool and Manchester United, EA Sports on January 12 released two new Showdown Squad Building Challenges. Liverpool midfielder James Milner and Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay are the rewards, as FIFA players can complete both of these SBCs and pick up two new 85 OVR Showdown player items. But in order to get these items, FIFA players will need to complete a few lineups.
