EA SPORTS have revealed the six contenders for Bundesliga Player of the Month (January), including some of the league’s top talents, with the winner of the fan vote receiving a brand new POTM Ultimate Team card. 

The process for this is simple. EA selects the players who have had the most exciting month of football and fans get to cast their own vote to pick who they think is worthy of an upgraded card. The winner is then granted one and players can get them in-game.

Germany’s Bundesliga has a number of top talents playing right throughout the division, including Borussia Dortmund’s January signing and super substitute Erling Haaland.

Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski has been on fire this season, but is he on the January shortlist for Bundesliga POTM?

The 19-year-old has only just walked in the door, but after hitting the back of the net eight times in four appearances (a goal every 22 minutes) since sealing a move to BVB, he’s already been linked with big money moves away. As expected, he features on EA’s list for January POTM.

He’s not alone on the list for January, however, and is joined by Robert Lewandowski, Jadon Sancho and a handful of others. All nominees can be found below, courtesy of EA SPORTS FIFA.

Timo Werner, who was voted POTM for both December and November previously, isn’t on track to make it three out of three after being confirmed as absent from the list. It’s refreshing to see new options available, though, nevertheless.

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!
