FIFA YouTuber Nick ‘RunTheFUTMarket’ Bartels has explained why Team of the Season So Far Wilfried Zaha isn’t worth his huge price tag, despite being a great player to have in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

Team of the Season So Far – more commonly abbreviated as TOTSSF – released late in April, celebrating the incredible performances of the world’s best footballers up to this point in the season across all different leagues and nations.

One of the players to receive a TOTSSF card in the Community Vote team is Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha, with a hugely boosted 92-rating that brings him level with some of FIFA’s top talent.

The FIFA 20 community’s TOTSSF squad sees some major upgrades to the world’s top talent.

After buying Zaha’s fresh upgrade, Bartels talks viewers through some of his stats, including huge boosts to his positioning, vision, finishing, and passing, among other things, before jumping into a game.

As usual, Nick played a dominant game, showing some of his – and Zaha’s – highlights that included 7 goals in just three games, clearly capable of performing well for the side.

However, after playing a few games with him, RunTheFUTMarket suggested that Zaha isn’t really worth the 835,000 coins he paid, saying he’s “more of a 500-600,000 card” due to his 3-star weak foot and because “his first touch is a little weird.”

He does say that Zaha is better than some other Premier League strikers, such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s Headliners card, but that he would opt for the likes of Son Heung Min’s 91-rated Team of the Week Moments card despite its bigger price tag.

Bartels also explains the price is hard to justify due to Zaha’s poor chemistry links, unless you have an entire Premier League team, because you could use the same amount of coins to pick up a Gold Neymar and Gold Mbappe, both of which are as good as or better than Zaha and will have better links, too.

Over time, Zaha’s price might start to drop as players realize he isn’t as valuable as the current price tag suggests, but for now, we advise listening to RunTheFUTMarket and investing your coins elsewhere.

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.

As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.
