Competing to build the strongest squad in FIFA 20 will be the task put in front of every player and there’s no better way to get ahead of the game than to scout out ratings before the web app arrives. 

In this article we will be specifically looking at the top-rated players in the Premier League – a division that’s not only home to the 2019 UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Virgil van Dijk and Champions League winners Liverpool, but also one of the strongest football team’s in the world – Manchester City.

With the two teams set to compete for English football’s crown once again in the 2019-2020 campaign, you might expect FIFA 20‘s top-rated players in the league to be combined eleven from both sides.

However, the EPL features a number of other talented players and exciting teams across the board. As years have gone by, those at the top of the tree were considered to be the top four, then top five and now there is some serious competition for every place in the whole top half of the table.

How many players outside of English football’s top two teams would, or could, feature in the Premier League’s top-rated XI though? Well, let’s take a look. 

Setting up with a 4-3-3 system, we’ve selected the highest rated players in each position based on their overall – using stats from the Futwiz database. In some spots there are a few selections available, which we’ll lay out below.

As expected, last season’s top two teams dominate the top player rankings in FIFA 20, although there are a number of positions that are more competitive than others.

One noticeable absence from the top player rankings list includes back-to-back Premier League champion goalkeeper Ederson, who is one overall lower than the highest rating in his position (88).  

Whether or not he should be included over David de Gea is a debate for both halves of Manchester, but there you have it. FIFA fans will have to wait until September 24 for the game’s release to get hands-on with these top players. For more information on the demo and teams involved click here.

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!
