FIFA 22 is full steam ahead into another week of new cards in Ultimate Team, starting with a fresh batch of Team of the Week players. So, here are our TOTW 5 predictions.

We’re now a few weeks into the FIFA 22 cycle and EA SPORTS have already started making some changes to Ultimate Team.

Alongside the release of some new cards from the Road to the Knockouts promo, we’ve also had a live balancing change to address the “broken” long finesse shots that had frustrated players.

One thing that never changes, though, is the weekly drop of Team of the Week, and after another pulsating round of fixtures, we’ve got some predictions for TOTW 5.

Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland should receive an upgraded FIFA 23 card.

Headlining our predictions for this week are Erling Haaland, Roberto Firmino, Bernado Silva, Edouard Mendy, and Serge Gnabry. That’s right, it could be a pretty big one this week.

After his hat-trick against Watford, Firmino is a shoo-in for TOTW 5, while both Haaland and Gnabry should be rewarded for their braces against Mainz and Bayer Leverkusen, respectively. Mendy helped Chelsea take all three points against Brentford with a few match-winning saves in the second half.

Elsewhere we’ve also got nods for Mateo Guendouzi, Josip Iličić, and Jason Denayer. Guendouzi lifted Marseille to a 4-1 rout over Lorient, so he should be in. Iličić struck twice for Atalanta against Empoli, so he deserves an upgrade. As for Denayer, the Belgian was in top form against Monaco, keeping a clean sheet and scoring at the other end.
