Virgil van Dijk might be playing in the best team in the world this season, but how many of his Liverpool teammates make it into his very own FIFA 20 Ultimate Team? 

Jurgen Klopp’s side have managed to go over 40 games unbeaten in the Premier League, not to mention their Champions League heroics of the previous season, and the big Dutchman striding around at center-back has been an integral part of the successful setup.

Just like many professional footballers playing Ultimate Team, Van Dijk has been given his very own 99 special card by EA SPORTS – which is a surefire way of knowing you have come up against a pro in-game.

Virgil was named as one of FIFA 20’s cover stars during Liverpool’s 2019 pre-season tour of the United States.

Reddit user McStazza couldn’t believe his luck after facing off against the Champions League winner, and Premier League winner in waiting, posting the side that he fielded against him on February 1, in Division Rivals.

While the inclusion of his own special card was always going to be a certainty, there are a lot of Brazilian players in Virgil’s team, including icons such as Ronaldo, Pele, Ronaldinho, and more.

There’s enough room for some Dutch talent from years gone by, too, though – as Clarence Seedorf, Ronald Koeman, and Ruud Gullit made the cut. So, let’s take a look at the whole lineup and see how many Liverpool stars were picked.

Virgil van Dijk’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

  • GK: Allison Becker (89)
  • CB: Virgil van Dijk (99)
  • CB: Ronald Koeman (88)
  • LB: Andy Robertson (86)
  • RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (85)
  • CDM: Clarence Seedorf (88)
  • CM: Ruud Gullit (90)
  • CM: Lionel Messi (94)
  • CAM: Ronaldinho (91)
  • ST: Pele (95)
  • ST: Ronaldo (94)

Van Dijks ultimate team from FIFA

Clearly, there are a lot of unbelievable cards to talk about, with two in-form flying fullbacks included in the mix, and an impressive midfield three of Messi, Seedorf, and Gullit. Not to mention the Brazilian flair of the attackers, who probably chip in with their fair share of goals too.

Van Dijk isn’t the only Dutchman to have their Ultimate Team starting lineup revealed in recent times, however, as Quincy Promes’ side was revealed by another player too.

So, now that you have seen his team, do you think you could beat Virgil in FIFA 20? That defense might be a tough one to break down.


FIFA 21 TOTW 17 predictions: Muller, Insigne, Stones

FIFA 21’s Team of the Week 17 is on the horizon in Ultimate Team. While Team of the Year might be the focus of some players, this could set could have some nice cards. So, here are our predictions. 

With the FA Cup getting underway last week, Team of the Week 16 gave EA the chance to shine the spotlight on some other leagues while also adding in a handful of standout players.

This week, as we approach TOTW 17, English sides are eligible again, and should feature a decent bit as there were a few outstanding performances. Of course, though, we’ll still get players from all over the globe.

So, without any further ado, here are our predictions for FIFA 21’s Team of the Week 17. 

Alisson Becker in FIFA 21
EA Sports
Liverpool’s Alisson Becker should be a shoe-in for TOTY, but deservers other cards.

This week our predictions are headed by two players who could end up with a Team of the Year card – Liverpool’s Alisson Becker and Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller. Alisson saved the Reds a point in a tight game against Manchester United.

Elsewhere, we’ve included Matheus Pereira for his MOTM performance for West Brom against Wolves, Lorenzo Insigne for his goals and assist for Napoli, and Nicolo Barella for his performance against Juventus. 

Ajax’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is a bit of a throwback, as he hasn’t a TOTW card in forever. However, he deserves one for lifting the Amsterdam side to a late win over FC Twente. 

FIFA 21 TOTW 17 Predictions | Team of the Week 17

  • GK: Alisson – Liverpool
  • GK: Stefan Ortega – Arminia Bielefeld
  • LB: Layvin Kurzawa – PSG
  • RB: Thomas Meunier – Borussia Dortmund
  • RB: Sofiane Alakouch – Nimes
  • CB: Patrick Mainka – FC Heidenheim
  • CB: John Stones – Manchester City
  • CDM: Peter Zulj – RSC Anderlecht
  • CM: Youri Tielemans – Leicester City
  • CM: Teun Koopmeiners – AZ Alkmaar 
  • CM: Tanguy Ndombele – Spurs
  • CM: Nicolò Barella – Inter Milan
  • RM: Salvador Agra – CD Tondela
  • LM: Sammy Ameobi – Nottingham Forest
  • CAM: Luis Alberto – Lazio
  • CAM: Matheus Pereira – West Brom
  • CAM: Thomas Muller – Bayern Munich 
  • LW: Lorenzo Insigne – Napoli
  • ST: Wissam Ben Yedder – AS Monaco
  • ST: Donyell Malen – PSV
  • ST: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar – Ajax
  • ST: Luka Jovic – Frankfurt
  • ST: Charlie Wyke – Sunderland

TOTW 17 Silver Star predcition – Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo

In terms of a Silver Stars prediction, we’ve gone with Crotone’s Nigerian striker Simeon Nwankwo – who is simply known as Simy in FIFA. 

The 28-year-old bagged two goals and chipped in with an assist during the win over Benevento, and should get a nice boost to the top end of the current silver cards. 

Obviously, these are purely our predictions for TOTW 17 and aren’t official in any way. EA might decide to hold certain players back because of TOTY – though, that is set to be revealed “later in January. 

Either way, it’s only a short wait until we know who is in TOTW 17 as the new cards will be released on Wednesday, January 20 at 6 PM GMT.
