FIFA 21 Ligue 1 January POTM nominees were announced Feb. 9 ahead of a new monthly SBC hitting FIFA Ultimate Team.

EA Sports awards Player of the Month special items for the Premier League, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and La Liga each month in FIFA Ultimate Team. A select amount of players are nominated each month and users cast their votes on who should win the award. The SBC is then made available for a month which comes in handy for those who grind out the more expensive players. Popular cards that have been released this year so far include POTM Bruno Fernandes, Erling Haaland and Joao Felix.

FIFA 21 Ligue 1 January POTM: Nominees

Here are the nominees for the Ligue 1 January POTM SBC:

  • Neymar Jr - Paris Saint-Germain: Four goals in all competitions
  • Kevin Volland - AS Monaco: Four goals and three assists in all competitions
  • Farid Boulaya - FC Metz: Two goals and two assists in all competitions

While fans probably want Neymar Jr to win, it's looking like Kevin Volland will take home the cake for his performances throughout January. AS Monaco was undefeated in January while PSG dropped one game and drew another. There have been cases in the past where a popular player has been nominated, but hasn't won the award.

As much as fans try and get Neymar Jr voted, prepare for the reality of Volland potentially winning the SBC.
