Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero has been voted as the Premier League Player of the Month, meaning that a brand new special card has been added to Ultimate Team.
The Argentinian striker pipped a number of other players to the prize for January, after picking up a hat-trick against Aston Villa in a 6-1 win at Villa Park and scoring a total of seven across all competitions during the month.
Other contenders that were nominated for a new POTM card included Alisson Becker, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jack Grealish, Jordan Henderson, Ayoze Perez, and Jack Stephens – with Aguero ultimately receiving more votes than each of them.
Sergio Aguero will be getting a brand new FIFA 20 POTM card.
The new card, as seen below, was confirmed on February 7 by the official EA SPORTS FIFA Twitter account and has some eye-watering stats, reflecting his recent vein of good form.
There’s no doubt that you will be seeing a lot more of this Aguero card in Ultimate Team moving forward, with the card shaping up to be one of the quickest and most lethal striking options the league has to offer. It would link up nicely with the new Roberto Firmino in-form card, revealed as part of TOTW 21.
With the Premier League Player of the Month now confirmed for January, it’s only a matter of time before the game’s developers reveal the winner of the fan vote for the Bundesliga POTM.
There are some great nominees this time around, too, including Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski, and more. Cast your vote for that competition here and the winner, just like Aguero will be granted a brand new Ultimate Team card.
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.
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.
This could be a cracking TOTW just in time for the full FIFA 21 release!
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.
Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
