EA SPORTS will soon be dropping Team of the Week 21 into FIFA 21 and after some flying performances, it’s looking like one of the best teams yet. 

The annual Future Stars promo is underway in FIFA 21, shining a light on some of the rising talents in world football. The promo has provided some nice cards, Squad Building Challenges, and brought back the Academy Objectives too. 

Though, the bedrock of FIFA promos that is Team of the Week is on the horizon once again. And again, EA have got a tricky job with who they’re picking given there have been some stellar performances across the globe.

Though, without any further ado, let’s get into the predictions for this week’s set of new cards. 

Lukaku could collect his third upgrade card of FIFA 21 with an in-form this week.
Lukaku could collect another FIFA 21 in-form this week.

Headlining our predictions this week are Ilkay Gundogan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferland Mendy, and Romelu Lukaku. It’s not all about the attacking talent this week, but there are some decent forwards who could make it. 

Gundogan was named January Player of the Month in the Premier League but continued his red hot form for Manchester City while Aubameyang tore Leeds apart with a hat-trick on his return to action.

Elsewhere, we’ve given nods to Emi Martinez for his heroics for Aston Villa, Trincao for bagging two goals for Barcelona, as well as a shout for Watford’s Ismalia Sarr who run riot in a 6-0 win over Bristol City. 

FIFA 21 TOTW 21 Predictions | Team of the Week 21

  • GK: Alex Meret – Napoli
  • LB: Ferland Mendy – Real Madrid

TOTW 21 Silver Stars prediction – Gelson Dala

In terms of a Silver Stars prediction, we’ve gone for Angolan winger Gelson Dala.

The 24-year-old, who is a 74-rated silver in FIFA 21, helped Rio Ave to a 3-1 win over Guimaraes, bagging a goal, an assist, and won Man of the Match honors. 

Obviously, these are purely our predictions for TOTW 21 and aren’t official. Just like last week, EA might scupper some of our predictions by including them in the Future Stars promo. 

Though, we don’t have to wait all that long anyway. Team of the Week 21 will be released on Wednesday, February 17 at 6 pm GMT.


Best strikers to buy in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

Building up a solid squad on FIFA 21’s Ultimate Team can be a difficult task, particularly when you’re looking for players who can consistently score goals. To solve this, we’ve put together a list of the best strikers in FIFA 21 to suit any budget and every style of play.

One of the reasons why FIFA’s Ultimate Team mode is so popular is the freedom of choice people have when building their squads. Although the meta certainly influences which players are used more than others, at the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to preference and what you’re personally looking for.

Despite this, when it comes to picking strikers, there are so many players to choose from on the market. This is especially true when you don’t have the cash to spend on the best players in the game.

That’s why we’ve put together a set of lists of the top forwards in FIFA 21 so you can have a clinical finisher upfront, for all sorts of price ranges. Keep in mind, all the players on these lists are standard base cards, not special items.

FIFA 21 released on October 6, 2021.

Best strikers in FIFA 21

Prices (taken from FUTBIN) are live and ever-changing, so expect there to be some differences when you search for these cards. These lists are also in no particular order.

In total, we’ve put together three separate lists that cover the fastest strikers, the best forwards, and of course, goalscorers to pick up when you’re on a budget.

Meta strikers in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

If you’ve got the cash to spend, there’s no doubt you should splash the money to pick up one of these players.

They might hurt your bank account in-game, but they’ll certainly make up for and more on the pitch.

  • Lionel Messi (98) – Price: 279,000 -285,000
  • Robert Lewandowski (91) – Price: 82,000 – 90,000
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (92) – Price: 1,114,000 – 770,000
  • Kylian Mbappe (90) – Price: 934,000 – 634,000
  • Sergio Aguero (89) – Price: 59,500 – 64,500

Lionel Messi is the highest-rated base player in FIFA 21.

Fastest strikers in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

If all you’re looking for is pace and the ability to beat a mean, these are the players you need to add to your squad.

Some of them may be lacking firepower compared to the meta strikers, but they certainly make up for it in speed.

  • Frank Acheampong (76) – Price: 700 – 1,200
  • Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (87) – Price: 42,000 – 47,500
  • Inaki Williams (81) – Price: 3,500 – 4,000
  • Patson Daka (76) – Price: 700 – 3,000
  • Alex Teixeira (79) – Price: 700 – 2,000
  • Emmanuel Dennis (76) – Price: 700 – 2,000
  • Kylian Mbappe (90) – Price: 934,000 – 634,000
  • Rodrigo (82) – Price: 2,800 – 3,000
FIFA 21 has plenty of great strikers you can pick up on a budget.

Cheap & budget strikers in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

Not everyone has hundreds of thousands of coins to throw around, so it’s important to know which strikers are out there that can be picked up on a budget.

Believe it or not, there are plenty of incredibly cheap strikers out there.

  • Erling Haaland (84) – Price: 11,750 – 12,250
  • Joao Felix (81) – Price: 1,700 – 1,800
