Chelsea’s Reece James has his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed

Chelsea’s Reece James has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed and despite having a 99-rated pro player card, he doesn’t exactly play it in the position that you might be thinking of.

In recent years, it’s been difficult for Chelsea youngsters to break through the ranks and make it into the first team, but Reece James has broken that mold. Since impressing in the Championship while on loan with Wigan Athletic, the 20-year-old has become a key figure in Frank Lampard’s squad.

When it comes to FIFA, though, he’s acknowledged that he isn’t the greatest player around. He was roundly beaten 8-0 by Everton’s Andre Gomes in the ePremier League invitational, but that hasn’t stopped him from diving into Ultimate Team.

Reece James is one of the flying full-backs to sign in FIFA 20.

The full-back’s team was revealed by himself on Chelsea TV, showing that he has the all-important 99-rated pro player card. Though, with him being a right-back, he doesn’t play there.

Instead, James’ virtual self partners icons Ronaldinho and Rui Costa in midfield – even though he has given them the holding roles – and he plays just behind a forward line of Cristiano Ronaldo, Pele, and Ronaldo Nazario.

  • GK: Ederson – 88
  • LB: Marcos Alonso – 81
  • RB: Kyle Walker – 84
  • CB: Aymeric Laporte – 87
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 90
  • CDM: Ronaldinho – 91
  • CDM: Rui Costa – 85
  • CM: Reece James – 99
  • RW: Pele – 95
  • LW: Cristiano Ronaldo – 93
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94

Now, while the midfield and attacking portion of his team are pretty impressive, James’ backline is made up of solely base Premier League cards. The England international could easily upgrade on teammate Marcos Alonso with the flashback SBC, and even grab himself one of the numerous Virgil Van Dijk in-forms that are on the market. 

Though, as we’ve already seen with players like Quincy Promes, these teams change pretty quickly, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see it shook up later down the line.

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.

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!
