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.

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

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.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
