New game faces (Starheads) will be revealed in FIFA 21, meaning that players on Ultimate Team, Career, and other modes will look a lot more realistic. 

EA SPORTS have already penned exclusive agreements with several of the world’s top domestic leagues, including the Bundesliga, Premier League, and most recently La Liga as well.

These deals ensure that all of the high-profile footballers in the division, or regular starters for each club, will look as accurate as possible. EA like to call these face scans ‘Starheads’ and there’s going to be a load of new ones in the next title.

FIFA 21 Star Heads update brings new face scans

Kylian Mbappe, the game’s worldwide cover star, has been given a new game face for FIFA 21.

Just like any other season, the bulk of Star Heads to be introduced will come from newly promoted sides. In England, for example, that includes the entire teams of West Brom and Leeds United, as well as the winner of the Playoffs.

In other cases, like Marseille, face scans have been confirmed as part of several social media posts from players.

More will be unveiled closer to the time of release, especially when people get ahold of EA Access and the game beta. That won’t stop us from putting a list together of likely candidates, though.

Below is a full list of club-wide face scans we can expect to be included in FIFA 21, as well as individual players.

Spurs face scans

A new home kit video for Spurs was posted on July 30, confirming the likes of Steven Bergwijn will have a face scan for the next title.

FIFA 21 Tigres content

In the case of Tigres, it looks like EA have been teasing the introduction of their stadium – which may indicate the Mexican club has become an official partner. In that case, official FIFA 21 Star Heads may be bundled in.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week is back for a third week in Ultimate Team after a packed slate of game. Here, we’ll run through TOTW 3 predictions, the promo’s release time, and lay out any leaks that have been revealed. 

Even though many of the world’s top domestic leagues have been taking a break due to international games, that’s not stopping Team of the Week.

The weekly addition of new cards has been full steam ahead since the launch of FIFA 21, with superstars like Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, and Bruno Fernandes receiving a special card already for their real-life performances.

With Team of the Week 3 on the horizon, some FIFA players might assume that it’s going to be a weaker set of cards, but, it could actually surprise you.

FIFA 21 TOTW 3 start time

On October 14, 2020, EA SPORTS will release their third batch of Team of the Week cards for FIFA 21. This promo will start up at 6pm (BST), which is three hours later than last year’s content schedule, so don’t be hovering around on Twitter waiting for it to drop too early.

It appears that a few cards from the latest set have already been leaked online.

Posts are suggesting Ones to Watch owners will receive their first upgrade, specifically those who have Arsenal’s Thomas Partey or Madrid’s Martin Odegaard in their ranks. According to a leaker called FUT Investments on Instagram, the following have been selected for inclusion this week:

  • Thomas Partey – Arsenal
  • Peter Gulacsi – RB Leipzig
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson – Everton
  • Roberto Firmino – Liverpool
  • Kyle Walker – Man City
  • Sergio Ramos – Real Madrid

These names were broken up into multiple posts, but here’s one from earlier.

Just a day previous, the account correctly leaked information on a Flashback Witsel SBC coming – and it was added soon after.

Last week, for the second set, the entire list was leaked ahead of schedule – meaning much of the game’s community knew what was coming before it was even confirmed.

If that happens again this time, we’ll be updating this section continually with updates. Don’t you fret.

Mason Mount features in our FIFA 21 TOTW 3 predictions.

Here’s our list of predictions. Once the official team has been released, you’ll be able to see how many we guessed correctly:

  • Rui Patricio – Wolves – GK
  • Brad Guzan – Atlanta United – GK
  • Jere Uronen – Genk – RB
  • Willi Orban – RB Leipzig – CB
  • Matthias Ginter – Borussia Monchengladbach – CB
  • Sergio Ramos – Real Madrid – CB
  • Robert Skov – Hoffenheim – LB
  • Kieran Trippier – Atletico Madrid – RB
  • Sergej Milinković-Savić – Lazio – CM
  • Mason Mount – Chelsea – CM
  • Alejandro Bedoya – Philadelphia Union – CM
  • Nikola Vlasic – CSKA Moscow – CAM
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson – Everton – CAM
  • Lee Nguyen – New England Revolution – CAM
  • Martin Odegaard – Real Madrid – RM
  • Gwion Edwards – Ipswich Town – RM
  • Luis Muriel – Atalanta – LW
  • Kamil Grosicki – West Brom – LM
  • Roberto Firmino – Liverpool – CF
  • Felipe Mora – Portland Timbers – ST
  • Alexander Sorloth – RB Leipzig – ST
  • Michael Olunga – Kashiwa Reysol – ST
  • Jamille Matt – Forest Green Rovers – ST

We’ve got Roberto Firmino, Sergio Ramos, and Sergej Milinković-Savić as the headline players in our predictions. Firmino has been in fine form Brazil during the international break, all things point towards a card for him. 

Looking up the Premier League table, Firmino’s Merseyside rival Gylfi Sigurdsson also looked likely to grab one.  The Everton midfielder bagged himself two goals and the Man of the Match honors during Iceland’s win over Romania.

Elsewhere, Mason Mount notched home England’s winner against Belgium and a fine performance earns him a nod, while Matthias Ginter got himself on the scoresheet in Germany’s 2-1 Nations League win over Ukraine.
