FIFA 21’s Team of the Week 14 is just around the corner, and it’s looking like an interesting lineup. So, let’s dive into our predictions for TOTW 14, as well as which Silver Star will make the cut this time around too.

Games are coming thick and fast in European football, especially in the Premier League, where some teams are playing three games a week as 2020 finally comes to a close.

In the Premier League, the battle for the top spots continues to heat up, with Raheem Sterling leading Manchester City to a 2–0 win against Newcastle, and Bernd Leno playing a crucial role in Arsenal’s shock 3–1 upset over Chelsea.

Gylfi Sigurðsson also proved decisive for Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton, as the Blues clinched a vital 1–0 victory to move into second above Leicester and United.

Sterling booked his TOTW 14 with a man of the match performance against Newcastle last weekend.

In Italy, center back  Milan Škriniar stamped his authority on a cagey 2–1 win for Inter, while Suso was key for Sevilla. Also in La Liga, Rubén García Santos had a hand in both Osasuna’s goals, and up in the north Ibrahima Wadji scored a hat-trick for FK Haugesund.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu was impressive in Milan’s 3–2 win ⁠— he made all three goals ⁠— while Barcelona’s Clément Lenglet seems a shoo-in for his goal against Valladolid.

Speaking of Barca, there’s also a chance Messi gets a record-breaker card (the Argentinian just cleared Pelé’s record of most goals with a single club), but considering he just got a Champions League card, EA may choose to skip him.

Without further ado, here’s how Team of the Week 14 could shape up.

Messi may miss out despite breaking Pelé’s long-standing record last week.

Obviously, these are purely our predictions for TOTW 13 and EA could have their own plans – we are in the middle of the Freeze promo after all, and some of the players we’ve chosen might be getting a card for that soon. 

As always, we don’t have to wait that long to find out though! Team of the Week 14 will be released on Wednesday, Dec. 30, at 6pm GMT. Keep your eyes peeled!

EA SPORTS have confirmed the date on which they’ll reveal FIFA 21’s Team of the Year, and we’ve also got a few clues for when the team should drop into packs as well.

Each year, when December comes to an end and we start to look forward to the new year, EA SPORTS start rolling out their Team of the Year promo.

Fans are able to vote on giving some of the best players in the game, an even better card with high 90-rated, and multiple 99 overalls being commonplace in TOTY.

This year, EA raised some eyebrows with some players who were nominated – most notably, Joselu, Francesco Caputo, and Steve Mandanda. However, the actual team is set to be revealed only a few days after the voting closed.

FIFA 21 TOTY release date

The voting for TOTY in FIFA 21 closed on January 18, sparking some wild rumors that the team was going to revealed and released later that day. Of course, that was never going to happen.

Instead, EA needs a few days to tally up the millions of votes they’ve received before they reveal the team. That’s why they’ve now announced that the team will be revealed on Friday, January 22.

Now, that’s not to say that the team will be revealed and go right into packs. No, some players have suggested that we might have another wait, and they probably won’t be wrong.

EA updated their TOTY site to confirm the reveal date.

Typically, in years gone by, the Team of the Year cards have been released in phases. So we’d have goalkeepers first, then defenders, then midfielders, and attackers before the full squad is released.

So, it could very well be the case here that while the team is revealed on the 22nd, EA leaves us all salivating over the weekend. They could then release the team a few days later with the phase of drops.

That’s purely speculation from some players, and EA might just reveal the team and then put it in packs. Though, that would be different from years gone by. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.
