EA SPORTS are set to reveal a fresh batch of FIFA 21 Ones to Watch cards in Ultimate Team when the game releases this October, and we’ve thrown together some early predictions.

Domestic leagues across the world are eyeing a return to their regular football schedule, with the 2020/2021 season quickly approaching, it’s been no surprise to see clubs looking to add new players to their squads.

Whether you look at transfer rumors and gossip, or just confirmed moves, the market is certainly hotting up. Transfers mean new cards in FIFA Ultimate Team so you can start to get a feel for what you want to do in the next game. Amongst these new cards are a select group called the Ones to Watch.

These highly sought-after cards represent some of the biggest, and most interesting, moves of the transfer window and if you get one, they’ll update whenever your player gets an upgrade – be it a TOTW or such.

A single Ones to Watch card will be collected by thousands of players who pre-ordered FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition.

We already know that new Chelsea forward Timo Werner is getting a special card after EA announced that on Instagram, and it seems like that new teammate Ben Chilwell will join him. Gareth Bale is also getting a card after returning to Spurs. 

Further afield, Leroy Sane has finally swapped Manchester City for Bayern Munich, so he’ll probably get one too. As will his replacement Ferran Torres. Everton have signed Allan from Napoli and James Rodriguez from Real Madrid, and they would make sense as OTWs too. Though, they’ve not been announced.

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!
