There’s one player in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team that’s been a thorn in the side of just about everyone, and that’s Wissam Ben Yedder. Now, he’s decided to give back to his fans with a big giveaway. 

The announcement come when the Frenchman, who plays for Monaco in Ligue 1, hit 500,000 followers on Instagram. Once the landmark had been reached, the speedy forward confirmed he would give away 10 different items if the post surpassed 50k.

It soon did, meaning five signed shirts would be given out, which is a nice collectible. The other five items were controllers, though, for all of those Ultimate Team players that have broken their own after conceding a goal to his card in-game.

Ben Yedder, no matter the version, has always been a strong card in FIFA’s most popular mode. FIFA 20 players know that all too well, especially those who have came up against his Ligue 1 TOTSSF variant.

Ben Yedder jokes with FIFA players

Ben Yedder has had some insane FUT cards this year.

In recent times, he’s really thrived on social media with this persona as well, joking with those who can’t stand the thought of coming up against him in-game.

On August 17, he said: “Thank you all for being part of the family. If you guys reach 50k likes on this post I will make a contest to win five signed shirts and five signed controllers to replace the one you broke because of me.”

Got to love footballers giving back to the community.

With FIFA 21 on the horizon, and a whole host of changes expected to land for gameplay and Ultimate Team, it remains to be seen if Ben Yedder will be as dominant next time around. Many members of the community will be praying he’s nowhere near as fast or deadly in front of goal.

Then again, he’s shown no signs of slowing down this season, recording 18 goals for his side in Ligue 1 before the season ended early. He will be hoping to build on those performances next time, too.

If you entered in his competition, the very best of luck to you.

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

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

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)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • 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!
