Team of the Week 7

Here’s the official Team of the Week 7!

Messi highlights this Team of the week with an interesting change, he’s now a CF, which means you will be able to change his position to be a Striker or a Midfielder. Along with the change, he gets small stat boosts and an overall rating increase to 94.

Watkins, Silva, Fabianski, and Fernandes make for some solid Premier League cards for this week. Over in La Liga we have Carlos Soler, Marcos Llorente, and Sergi Roberto. Of course, all of these cards will fetch a nice amount of coins on the market!

Eleven players across the starting TOTW lineup, and the sub bench, were revealed early in FIFA 21 through the Ultimate Team Weekend League player pick packs. The next Team of the Week isn’t released until Nov. 11, but the players arrived early.

The standout “leak” is the suggestion Lionel Messi ⁠— who scored twice against Real Betis last Saturday ⁠— won’t actually be included. The Barcelona magician may lose his spot to the team’s right back, Sergi Roberto, according to leaks.
