Paul Pogba and James Rodriguez will have 90-rated cards available on FIFA 19's Ultimate Team mode  following the release of the latest round of upgrades on Wednesday for Team of the Week 22.

The former bagged two goals for Manchester United in a 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday, while Rodriguez contributed an assist as Bayern Munich beat Schalke 3-1.  

The following day, Raheem Sterling struck twice in Manchester City's 6-0 demolition of Chelsea to earn a place in the lineup.

Resurgent Pogba Included After Brace Against Fulham

Pogba can be thankful that UEFA Champions League performances haven't impacted the team selection after he was sent off against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday in their 2-0 defeat, but he put in a fine showing at Craven Cottage.

He fired the Red Devils in front after just 14 minutes, lashing home Anthony Martial's pass into the roof of the net past Sergio Rico.

After Martial got on the scoresheet himself with a stunning solo effort, Pogba wrapped up the win with a penalty after Juan Mata had been bowled over by Maxime Le Marchand.

Pogba's card includes a passing attribute of 90, while his physical stat is 89, allowing him to be a creative but robust presence in midfield.

Players in search of a top-quality central midfielder might alternatively consider Rodriguez. His passing eclipses even Pogba's at 91, while he also has shooting and dribbling of 89.

Although he was not credited with an assist, he had a big hand in Bayern's opener after 11 minutes when he slipped through Robert Lewandowski, only for Jeffrey Bruma to divert it into his own goal.

He set up Lewandowski with a first-time pass for Bayern's second in what was an excellent overall performance from the Colombian.

On Sunday, while Sergio Aguero grabbed the headlines with his second hat-trick in a week, Sterling was similarly important to City's result against Chelsea.

He fired City in front after four minutes, and after drawing a foul from Cesar Azpilicueta for a penalty dispatched by Aguero, he rounded out the win with another from close range.

With 95 pace and 90 dribbling, the winger—whose position has swapped from right to left—will be as much of a nightmare for defenders to deal with on the game as he is in real life.
