EA SPORTS

FIFA 18 TOTW 16 CONFIRMED

FIFA 18 TOTW 16 - UPDATE 3

Before the release of FIFA 18, EA Sports had made a habit running a weekly live stream to reveal the official Team of the Week, however, towards the end of the FIFA 17 season and with the introduction of FIFA 18, EA Sports have changed tack.

Instead, EA Sports release their new TOTW at 3PM on the dot via their official social media channels, including Twitter, Facebook and Google +.

This mean's we're now 1 hour away from the official reveal and equally it means players have less than 4 hours to hopefully pack some of the FIFA 18 TOTW players from last week.

As previously mentioned, that's because after 6PM those TOTW players will no longer be available in FIFA 18 packs. They will be available on the in-game transfer market but expect to pay well over the odds for those players.

As a reminder, below you'll find a rundown of who FUThead believes will be included in this weeks TOTW 16 squad:

FIFA 18 TOTW 16 - UPDATE 2

We're now less than three hours away from the FIFA 18 TOTW 16 announcement but it's worth noting that certain players could get a substantial upgrade later today.

One of the players who Futhead has targeted as a potential TOTW 16 candidate is Manchester City keeper, Ederson.

And that could be excellent news for anyone lucky enough to own his particular FIFA 18 One To Watch card.

For anyone who doesn't know what's special about a FIFA 18 One to Watch card or when they're active, remind yourself with the below FAQ:

Q: What makes Ones to Watch special?

A: The Ones to Watch items dynamically upgrade and have an opportunity to increase in ratings throughout the season. If you have a Ones to Watch item in your club, its ratings will automatically match that of the players latest Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero or Record Breaker In-Forms. The better the player performs in real life, the higher their ratings become!

Q: What is a Live Item?

A: Ones to Watch players will be released as Live Items. The ratings on this item type update automatically, whether they are in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market.

Q: When do Ones to Watch items get updated?

A: The items get automatically updated when a new Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero or Record Breaker is released, provided that the player is included.

FIFA 18 TOTW 16 - UPDATE 1

Although every FIFA 18 player is no doubt excited by the potential of a brand new TOTW squad coming later today - to not only challenge in FIFA 18 but also collect through the games in-game packs - it's worth remembering that there are still some hours to go to get last weeks TOTW 15 lineup.

FIFA 18 TOTW 15 included FIVE Premier League players including Manchester City's Sergio Aguero, Spurs Harry Kane as well as Everton's Phil Jagielka, Stoke's Choup-Moting and Newcastle's Christian Atsu.

These players will of course still be available to buy from the FIFA 18 transfer market, but if you're hoping to pack any of these players you'll only have until 6PM this evening to do so, at which point they'll be replaced by the new Team of the Week squad.

Below you'll also find the FIFA 18 TOTW 15 Starting XI, who are (we think) the main players you want to see when you open a new FIFA 18 pack.

FIFA 18 TOTW 15 Starting XI

GK: Andrea Consigli– Sassuolo – 82 > 84

LB: Íñigo Martínez – Real Sociedad – 82 > 84
CB: Medhi Benatia – Juventus – 84 > 87
CB: Phil Jagielka – Everton – 80 > 83

LM: Takashi Inui – SD Eibar – 78 > 82
CDM: Luiz Gustavo – Olympique de Marseille – 80 > 85
CM: Allan – Naples – 80 > 83
LM: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting – Stoke City – 77 > 82

ST: Lionel Messi – FC Barcelone – 93 > 95
ST: Sergio Aguero – Manchester City – 89 > 91
ST: Harry Kane – Tottenham – 86 > 89

ORIGINAL STORY - FIFA 18 will be unveiling a new TOTW tomorrow, the 15th Team of the Week squad for the game's PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch Ultimate Team mode.

For anyone new to FIFA Ultimate team TOTW, here's a quick overview:

The FUT Team of the Week (TOTW) is a weekly team of 23 in-form player cards and these players will be boosted with a stat upgrade by EA based on how well they have performed over the last week in real-life football fixtures.

The new FIFA 18 Ultimate Team cards are available from packs in-game but will only be available for one week from 6PM (UK time) every Wednesday. They can also be found in the in-game market, but usually at hugely inflated prices.

Now onto business - while we can't say for definite who will be in the 23 man TOTW squad, there are one or two players who have surely cemented their place this week following some fine performances in the last round of fixtures. For instance:

With a winter break in force for most leagues across Europe, this week will likely contain a high volume of players from the Premier League, Championship and EFL.

As such, Futhead believes that this week we could see as many as seven Premier League starters and a further nine spread across the English leagues.

That's just a small taste of the potential squad, but before EA unveils the new FIFA 18 TOTW, above you'll find the full prediction of the team we could see, as suggested by the FIFA Ultimate Team experts at Futhead, who last week correctly predicted 16 of the eventual 23 man squad.
