Leicester City’s rising star James Maddison might be playing his football in one of England’s most exciting young teams, but there’s no lack of experience in his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team. 

The creative midfielder has been enjoying a successful Premier League campaign so far, as part of the Foxes’ formidable midfield three, joined by Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi.


When given the option to pick any player in the world to buy, from past or present, though, Maddison decided to opt for a very different combination in the middle of the park – in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

James Maddison has been given his very own 99 rated card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, which features in his team.

A Reddit user appears to have spotted the 23-year-old reveal the team he’s assembled in EA SPORTS’ popular game mode, opting for a 4-2-3-1 formation, but are any of his Leicester teammates included?


Well, let’s take a look at how it shapes up – according to the post from simonk420.

Maddison’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

  • GK: Alisson Becker
  • RB: Kyle Walker
  • CB: Paolo Maldini
  • CB: Virgil van Dijk
  • LB: Roberto Carlos
  • CDM: Ruud Gullit
  • CDM: N’Golo Kante
  • CAM: James Maddison
  • CAM: Ronaldo (R9)
  • CAM: Pele
  • ST: Kylian Mbappe

James Maddison’s FUT team from FIFA

Now, there’s absolutely no doubt that he’s enjoyed threading the ball through to speedsters like Jamie Vardy, Ayoze Perez, and Kelechi Iheanacho this season, but the attacking options in his FUT team are on another level, to be fair.

In front of Maddison in his team is a forward three of famous Brazilian striker Ronaldo, Pele – potentially the best player to ever play the game – and Kylian Mbappe, one of the world’s fastest and most promising forwards. It is quite the lineup, to say the least.


It should come as no surprise to see van Dijk at the back, playing alongside AC Milan legend and Icon card Maldini, giving the team a quality defense to match the attack.

One user offered some chemistry advice to improve the team, too, saying: “Switch himself and Kante for 10 chemistry on everyone,” although it seems he would prefer to play his own 99 card right through the middle.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.


Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.


Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.


These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.


There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.
