EA SPORTS have confirmed a short list of other defensive changes. These include the following:
- Shoulder Challenges have been re-worked to create a better contact between players, and avoid the defender overshooting their opponent.
- Seal Outs are when a defender puts themselves between the attacker and the ball to take back possession or shepherd the ball out of play, and they have also been re-engineered to create a better positioning between the player and their opponent.
- To perform a Shoulder Challenge or Seal Out, tap the L2/LT button whilst side by side with your opponent when defending.
