Liverpool’s Diogo Jota has revealed his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team after going 30-0 in FUT Champs Weekend League and grabbing the top spot in the world.

Just like everyone else, professional footballers enjoy a few games of FIFA in their spare time. Many players with, and against, teammates on away day trips, but some go hard on the competitive side.

They’ll dive into FIFA Ultimate Team’s FUT Champs mode and test themselves against the best of the best. Some fare better than others, with Liverpool’s Diogo Jota being the undisputed top dog.

The Portuguese star has spoken about his love for FIFA in the past, dominated Premier League tournaments, and even gone 30-0 before too. But now, he’s gone one better as the #1 player on PlayStation.

Diogo Jota was in red-hot form for Liverpool prior to his injury.

Jota, who is currently missing for Liverpool through injury, revealed the incredible feat on his Instagram story. “Just said I would play until I lose,” he joked, with his 30-0 record sitting there as a strong flex.

As noted, going 30-0 is no easy feat – and doing it twice is impressive. But being able to rank above everyone else, at least for the time being, as the best player on your console is something else.

The 24-year-old obviously has some help given that he has a 99-rated pro player card, and some icons, but he still gives in to the meta. He uses Nick Pope, Ferland Mendy, Kyle Walker in-form, and Headliners James Tavernier in the backline.

  • GK: Nick Pope – 84
  • LB: Ferland Mendy – 83
  • RB: James Tavernier – 86
  • CB: Raphael Varane – 88
  • CB: Kyle Walker – 86
  • CDM: Patrick Vieira  – 88
  • CM: Ruud Gullit – 90
  • CM: Diogo Jota – 99
  • CAM: Eusebio – 91
  • ST: Ronaldo – 94
  • ST: Kylian Mbappe – 90

The Liverpool forward hasn’t made many changes to achieve the mean feat. Last time we saw his team, he was using Adama Traore at left-back and Cristiano Ronaldo in midfield.

Obviously, the changes will have helped a little bit, but there’s no denying the Portuguese’ talent with the sticks.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 22 has been revealed by EA SPORTS, with a number of new TOTW 22 players being added to Ultimate Team. 

Fans of Everton and Borussia Dortmund will have been waiting all week to see if their Derby heroes, Richarlison and Jadon Sancho, lead the charge with upgraded cards. Of course, that expectation comes after ousting their opponents Liverpool and Schalke 04 in local clashes over the weekend. Real Madrid maestro Casemiro also looked like a shoe-in based on many people’s predictions.

Lautaro Martinez is another one fans have claimed should be in TOTW 22, after the Inter striker dismantled local title rivals Milan in yet another February grudge match. The 3โ€“0 win, which saw Martinez score twice, put Inter in first place.

Hereโ€™s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo, including when the Team of the Week lineup go into packs, and how the confirmed team matches up against Dexertoโ€™s weekly predictions.

Jadon Sancho missed out last week, but the young Englishman may be included in TOTW 16 instead.
Jadon Sancho may have earned his spot in TOTW 22 after demolishing Dortmund’s local rivals Schalke.
