EA Sports has pushed a new update live for FIFA 18 that makes a number of improvements to goalkeepers, Ultimate team, and more.

According to the patch notes, the update removes incorrect penalty calls when defenders win the ball in the air, but hit the attacker, and stops goalkeepers staying on the ground too long and not gathering the ball when it is close.

The update also places a time limit on how long the Xbox and PlayStation 4 home menus can be open for during a FUT Champions match. Following the update, a timer will appear on the screen while the menu is open with a message warning players that they will forfeit the match unless the menu is closed.

Other changes include additional matchmaking regions for Pro Clubs, a fix for an issue causing players not to be able to make quick subs, and the removal of repetitive whistling in some stadiums.

Read the full patch notes below:
