EA SPORTS have revealed a fresh set of Team of the Week cards for Week 21, featuring some of the hottest in-form players in the Premier League, Bundesliga and more.

Players can get ahold of these by opening FIFA Ultimate Team packs after 6PM GMT (10AM EST, 7AM PST), which is when they will be added to the market for the first time.

Some weeks there will be a clear emphasis on one part of the pitch and this week that’s certainly the case, with some strong firepower up front between Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino (88) – who has been scoring goals for fun away from home this season – Romelu Lukaku (88), Ciro Immobile (90) and more.

Not to mention the exciting additions made in midfield, with Jadon Sancho (87), Angel Di Maria (88), Santi Cazorla (86) and more receiving in-form cards for Week 21.

Elsewhere, Yerry Mina was rewarded once again with an in-form card after his heroic double against Watford which sparked a sensational comeback from Everton – beating the Hornets 3-2 at their own ground, after the home side took an early 2-0 lead.

Robert Snodgrass, who has also been in fine form for West Ham in recent weeks, also gets an upgraded card – bumped up to an 81 rating – after scoring a brace against Brighton on February 1. Ultimate Team players looking to bring him into their starting XIs will be looking to close out games a lot better than the Hammers did in that game, however, after throwing away a 3-1 lead to finish 3-3 in that game.

These cards will only be available in packs for a limited time, though, so if there’s one that has caught your eye this week, you are going to have to act fast.

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.

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.

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)

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.

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!
