Each week EA Sports creates a FIFA Ultimate Team Team of the Week (TOTW) based on players in the real world that are in form for that week. Take a look at the team that will be available for one week from 19th February at 6pm (UK time).
Michael Jacobs will be flying high after his permanent signing to Wolves has not only seen him bag a MOTM award against Notts County in a 2-0 at the weekend but also a spot on the bench for the TOTW. Both goals showed different sides of Jacobs and I admire his desire to throw himself into the diving header for his first.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a handful as it is on FIFA Ulitmate Team and now he’s in-form he’s a must have for Bundesliga teams. His two goals got Dortmund off to a flyer against Eintracht Frankfurt to help close in on second place Bayer Leverkusen. An impressive first season so far, can he keep this up for the remainder?
Lionel Messi, you know that Argentine bloke who breaks records for fun had a decent game this weekend gone for Barcelona. Two goals in a thrashing of Rayo Vallecano put him joint third in the all time La Liga top scorers alongside Spanish legend Raul. How long before he reaches No.1? It’s certainly in my opinion more of a “when” than “if” he gets there.
