Liverpool star defender Trent Alexander-Arnold might be on his way to Premier League glory, but will his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team top the Weekend League charts anytime soon?

While they might be some of the best players in the world, footballers still find time to kick back and play some FIFA. Though, the only difference is that they can spend a pretty penny more on Ultimate Team and get their own card. 

Just like many professional players who enjoy FUT, Alexander-Arnold has been handed his very own custom 99 card by EA SPORTS. So, it makes it obvious when you’re coming up against him.

EA Sports / 100 ThievesUltimate Team is by far the most popular mode in FIFA.

Redditor SamHulz came up against the flying full-back’s ‘We Dem Boyz’ side during a recent session of Ultimate Team games and proved that he had done so by posting a picture of the lineup to the FIFA subreddit

Amid the excitement of gearing up to play a professional player though, the Redditor didn’t exactly leave us with the cleanest of pictures but it is easy to pick out the defender’s own card, as well as his teammates in Allison, Virgil van Dijk, and Andy Robertson. 

There is also room for quite a few legends including Patrick Vieira, Ruud Gullit, Johan Cruyff, and Ronaldo – while a Team of the Year Neymar card also makes it in.

  • GK: Allison Becker (97)
  • CB: Virgil van Dijk (99)
  • CB: Paolo Maldini (92)
  • LB: Andy Robertson (94)
  • RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (99)
  • CDM: Patrick Vieira (88)
  • CDM: Ruud Gullit (90)
  • CAM: Johan Cruyff (91)
  • CAM: Neymar (98)
  • CAM: Jamie Vardy (86)
  • ST: Ronaldo (94)

Played TAA today quite a good fifa player but he has an insane team from FIFA

Now, if you’re looking at that lineup and are wondering how the Player of the Month Vardy card makes it into the mix, don’t worry, you’re probably not alone.

However, SamHulz explained that Trent copied a common Ultimate Team tactic by subbing him almost instantly, but who replaced him? Well, it was none other than the Team of the Year Lionel Messi card.

Unless he’s made any changes since, the Liverpool defender’s team is pretty formidable and certainly better than the Dutch pair of Virgil Van Dijk and Quincy Promes, who also had their teams revealed recently.

However, the Liverpool players probably won’t be focusing on Weekend League all that much, they’ve got their own league title glory to chase after.

FIFA 21 players are never happy when the EA servers are down, and it appears that the latest offering of the popular football franchise is struggling with issues on December 3, with widespread reports from players unable to find games in Ultimate Team. 

With next-gen consoles finally jumping onboard the FIFA 21 hype train, the servers were expected to struggle. Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 players got access to the next-gen game on December 3, with all-new graphics and big performance boosts.

As always though, there are a few teething problems with the online services with so many players trying to hop onto the game at once, and it appears that on the same day, many were unable to gain access to FIFA 21’s online capabilities.

So, let’s take a look at the latest update on connectivity issues.

Are EA servers down for FIFA 21?

December 3, 2020

The FIFA 21 servers have been struggling with the increased load from next-gen consoles. While players have noted they were struggling to log in, the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter has reported a new issue with matchmaking.

“We are aware that players are currently unable to matchmake in FIFA 21 FUT, across all platforms. We are investigating and will provide an update when one is available,” they said.

It’s not just next-gen players who are affected, but players across all platforms, regardless of whether you’re on the older consoles, or even PC.

The outage has been going on since around 7:30pm ET, although its still spiking hours later, according to Down Detector.

The site confirms there are reported “issues” with EA’s servers, as expected, meaning players are unable to play FIFA Ultimate Team and their Division Rivals matches.

EA has yet to comment on how long this outage will last, but hopefully, it wraps up before too long. We’ll keep you posted with updates to this article in due course.
