Bukayo Saka has had his entire FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting XI revealed and it’s fair to say that some of the game’s very best Icon cards would not be out of his price range if he was to sell it all. 

Just like many other real footballers who come up against people, their opponents tend to expose their teams by posting the players that took to the pitch against them online, and the same seems to have been the case for the Arsenal youngster.

With so many players now available in FUT, including many legends from the Gunners’ past like Patrick Vieira, Ian Wright, Denis Bergkamp and more, it’s something of a shock to see Saka hasn’t actually got any of the Arsenal greats in his team.

EA SPORTS
There are many Arsenal Icons from yesteryear included in FIFA 20, but does Saka have any? Let’s find out.

That said, one special card that did make the cut, obviously, was his very own 99 left midfield card, with maxed out stats. This card is a telltale sign that you’re up against a real footballer or a relative of one using their card, as there’s only one of them made available by EA SPORTS and assigned to each player per season.

With many notable additions included in Saka’s lineup, posted to Reddit by user Viggo10brondby, let’s run though the whole thing by each position.

The photo, as seen below, has been cut off but based on the ratings of players on the right side – and given they’re both Manchester City players – it’s easy to spot who we’re dealing with here.

Bukayo Saka’s FIFA 20 ultimate Team starting XI

  • GK: Alisson Becker (89)
  • CB: Paolo Maldini (92)
  • CB: Toby Alderweireld (87)
  • RB: Kyle Walker (84)
  • LB: Andy Robertson (85)
  • CDM: Wilfred Ndidi (86)
  • CDM: Ruud Gullit (90)
  • CAM: Kaka (91)
  • LM: Bukayo Saka (99)
  • RM: Raheem Sterling (88)
  • ST: Ronaldo (94)

Just played Bukayo Saka from FIFA


A number of current Premier League stars do make the cut, however, including Tottenham Hotspurs defender Toby Alderweireld, which may raise some eyebrows in North London given their historic rivalry. The pace of Toby, too, might be a potential weak spot in an otherwise solid defensive unit.

Other honorable mentions go to Ruud Gullit, who has once again been a hugely popular card in FIFA 20, as well as Paolo Maldini, Kaka and of course R9.

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)
  • 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!
