Ajax’s Chelsea-bound star Hakim Ziyech has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed, but do any of his current or future teammates warrant a spot in the starting lineup?

After a stunning 2018/19 campaign, many football fans expected to see Ajax’s Ziyech make the move away from Amsterdam. The Moroccan midfielder had helped the Dutch giants to another league title and Champions League semi-final, firing in 21 goals and 24 assists.

He stuck with Ajax through the summer window but it was confirmed in February that the 27-year-old would be joining Chelsea for the start of the 2020/21 season. Like many other footballers, Ziyech appears to be an avid Ultimate Team player – having a strong outfit that many fans will probably envy.

Ziyech has risen through the ranks and even played at a World Cup.

The Moroccan’s lineup was posted on the FIFA subreddit after Reddit user veedubburns came across him in a game – noting that Ziyech did what all good players do, skipped the replays.

Like plenty of other professionals who play FIFA, the 27-year-old has his own 99-rated custom card that takes pride of place as the spearhead of his 4-5-1 formation. 

Of course, there are a few legends dotted around the team too with names like Zidane, Hierro, Ronaldo, and Gullit showing off their skills.

Hakim Ziyech’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Starting XI

  • GK: Edwin Van Der Sar – 91
  • LB: Renan Lodi – 87
  • RB: Nelson Semedo – 87
  • CB: Fernando Hierro – 91
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
  • CM: Zinedine Zidane – 94
  • CAM: Ruud Gullit – 90
  • CAM: Ronaldo – 94
  • RM: Lionel Messi – 94
  • LM: Neymar – 92
  • ST: Hakim Ziyech – 99

Just played Ziyech, skipped all replays, maybe this lockdown isn’t all bad ?? from FIFA

Unlike some other of his fellow pros, the Ajax star isn’t all about the icon cards – though he does have a few. The Future Stars Lodi and Headerliners Semedo stand out from the pack, but they are cards he could improve on.

As he’s set to join Chelsea, Ziyech could very well pick up a few of his new teammates moving forward, or even find a slot for future manager Frank Lampard. The possibilities are pretty much endless.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)

  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
