The English striker edges over the likes of Salah and Son to bag his first ever Player of the Month award.
AFC Bournemouth is not even in the top half of the table. However, their star striker, Dominic Solanke is the joint third top scorer in the Premier League in the 2023-24 season. The 26 year old has scored 12 goals this season, just 2 less than the top scorers of this season – Erling Haaland and Mohammad Salah. The Englishman has scored 6 goals in December alone, thereby helping his team attain 13 points in 6 games during the month.

Quite deservingly, Solanke has been awarded the Premier League Player of the Month for December. To honor this achievement, EA has awarded Solanke a heavily upgraded POTM card in FC 24 Ultimate Team – with an 88 rating. Similar to other Player of the Month cards, the only way to attain this card is through a Squad Building Challenge (SBC).
How is POTM Dominic Solanke different from his other cards?
As mentioned earlier, Solanke has been the heart and soul of Bournemouth in their current Premier League campaign. The Bournemouth star has already received two performance based Team of the Week (TOTW) cards in EA FC 24 and his Player of the Month card is an upgrade over his latest TOTW card. But in order to keep up this SBC card with the ever-growing power curve, EA has given this card massive upgrades in multiple fronts.
In addition to his statistical upgrades, POTM Solanke has a nice weak foot upgrade, a new Playstyle+ and multiple new playstyles in comparison to his highest rated TOTW card, which can be summarized as below:
- +2 Overall Rating (OVR)
- +2 Pace
- +3 Shooting
- +3 Passing
- +2 Dribbling
- +3 Defending
- +2 Physicality
- +Power Header Playstyle+
- +Power Shot Playstyle
- +Aerial Playstyle
- +1 star Weak Foot upgrade
How To Complete POTM Dominic Solanke SBC
EA set the requirements at around 75K coins to complete this SBC from scratch. The challenge, along with the cheapest available solution, are as follows:
- Premier League Players: Minimum one
- Team Rating: Minimum 86
The SBC segment prices may be slightly different from the price listed here due to the fluctuating nature of the Ultimate Team market.
POTM Dominic Solanke is an extremely useable option up top for Ultimate Team players running Premier League squads. A 6’2″ striker with Power Header+, Aerial and Acrobatic playstyles is guaranteed to aid you in exploiting the crossing META. Moreover, this card has elite physicality, great dribbling, top shooting and great sprint speed.
A well-rounded card for just 75K is a steal in our opinion, especially if you have untradable duplicates that you need to get rid of. If you are running Premier League themed squads or are a fan of the player or the club, we recommend you to incorporate this card into your starting XI.
With the availability of fodders for extremely low prices, it should not be too difficult to complete this SBC.
