FIFA 21’s Team of the Week 15 is almost here in Ultimate Team, and even though TOTY is on the horizon, this could be a tasty little lineup. So, here are our predictions. 

Plenty of FIFA 21 players will be looking ahead to the biggest, and typically best, promo of the year – Team of the Year – seeing as we’re now into January and it’s on the horizon, looming large. 

The annual promo sees the best players in the game rewarded with some of the best non-Icon cards of the year, but before we get to that point, we still have another one or two sets of Team of the Week cards to be released. 

With leagues across the globe still playing games at a thick and fast pace, there are still plenty of players to choose from for TOTW 15, but the Headliners promo and TOTY might things a little bit trickier. EA shouldn’t really double up on cards, after all. But, this week should still provide some nice cards.

Spurs’ Harry Kane should feature in FIFA 21’s newest TOTW.

Headlining our predictions this week are Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku, and Tottenham Hotspurs’ Harry Kane. Yes, it could be a pretty tasty forward line after their performances this week.

Elsewhere, Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney and Alex Lacazette were on fire as the Gunners dispatched of West Bromwich Albion. Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata bagged a brace against Sassuolo so he gets a nod, as does Thomas Soucek who scored West Ham United’s late winner against Everton.

We’ve also gone for Manchester City’s Phil Foden, Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich, Benfica’s Rafa, and Barcelona’s Frankie De Jong.

FIFA 21 TOTW 15 Predictions | Team of the Week 15

  • GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma – AC Milan 
  • GK: Gregor Kobel – VfB Stuttgart
  • LB: Kieran Tierney – Arsenal
  • LB: Iago – Augsburg
  • RB: De Marcos – Atletico Bilbao
  • CB: Ben Mee – Burnley
  • CB: Willi Orban – Red Bull Salzburg 
  • CDM: Thomas Soucek – West Ham United
  • CM: Joshua Kimmich – Bayern Munich
  • CM: Baptiste Santamaría – Freiburg
  • CM: Koke – Atletico Madrid
  • CM: Frenkie De Jong – Barcelona
  • CM: Youri Tielemans – Leicester City
  • RM: Jadon Sancho – Borussia Dortmund
  • RM: Jamal Lowe – Swansea City
  • LM: Rafa – Benfica
  • LW: Phil Foden – Manchester City
  • CAM: Piotr Zielinski – Napoli
  • CAM: Amin Younes – Eintracht Frankfurt
  • ST: Harry Kane – Spurs
  • ST: Romelu Lukaku – Inter Milan
  • ST: Alexander Lacazette – Arsenal
  • ST: Duvan Zapata – Atalanta

Obviously, these are purely our predictions for TOTW 15 and aren’t official in any way. EA will likely have shortlisted drafted up for the next Headliners cards, as well as TOTY, and they could affect this team. 

Though, we don’t have to wait all that long anyway. Team of the Week 15 will be released on Wednesday, January 6 at 6 pm GMT.


EA SPORTS finally reveal when TOTY is coming out in FIFA 21

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.

The full list of nominees for FIFA 21 Team of the Year (TOTY).

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.
