Here are all the confirmed Ones To Watch Team 1 cards, along with their upcoming 5 fixtures and whether you should be keeping an eye on them.

Ones To Watch Team 1

Here is the first Ones To Watch Team that will be released into packs between 6pm October 9th and 6pm October 16th.

Luis Suarez - Atletico Madrid - 88 ST

Luis Suarez is the highest-rated player in OTW Team 1 and will be an 88 rating to match his 1st IF item released during TOTW 1.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

With some relatively simple fixtures on paper upcoming for Atletico, with Osasuna and Cadiz, as well as Celta Vigo, Suarez could be in the running for another IF should he hit a run of form, just take note of his TOTW 1 IF, which may mean it’ll take some time for another special card to get released.

However, if you're a fan of the Uruguayan forward, he's likely to produce a few more cards as he's still firing on all cylinders at a great team. He will be one of the higher tier players that will grow in value while remaining relatively at a good cost.

Timo Werner - Chelsea - 85 ST

Timo Werner looks to be one of the most hyped new OTW cards, featuring blistering pace and superb finishing ability.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

While there are no easy games in the Premier League, over the coming weeks, Chelsea has a few relatively simple fixtures upcoming, meaning Timo could get among the goals and earn himself a potential OTW upgrade.

Despite Werner not having a goal in the league so far, given his involvement in the starting line-up for Chelsea and Germany. He will undoubtedly get some in-forms if he can kick into gear but will cost a pretty penny and there may be more valuable options.

Hakim Ziyech - Chelsea - 85 CAM

Hakim Ziyech has also been confirmed as an OTW card for the 1st OTW squad and looks like a great potential pickup once fit again

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

With Ziyech returning to full fitness, he may start getting some time in the Chelsea squad over the coming weeks, and with their seemingly easy run of games upcoming, could be in the running for an IF and OTW upgrade.

Ziyech will have a number of players to compete with for his position, but is undoubtedly a great CAM choice and maybe a very cost-effective OTW if he can get into the starting line-up and bag some goals.

Alex Telles - Manchester United - 84 LB

Alex Telles is an OTW in the first squad, and what an LB he is, now in the red half of Manchester!

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

With Alex Telles being a very new transfer into the Manchester United squad, with a tricky run of fixtures upcoming in the next 5 Premier League gameweeks, Telles might not be the best shout for an IF any time soon.

Telles is undoubtedly one of the best left-backs in the game and one of the best in the Premier League. But United look very shaky at the back with some tough games coming up, it will be tough to see one player transform that defence; this may be one to avoid.

Thomas Partey - Arsenal - 84 CM

Another deadline day signing, Thomas Partey is now in the Premier League!

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

Unfortunately, with Thomas Partey playing a slightly deeper defensive midfield role, coupled with Arsenal’s difficult run of games over the coming few Premier League gameweeks, it may take some time before we see a Partey upgrade.

Those upgrades may be far behind the meta curve too once he finally does get an upgrade, especially with a lack of pace behind him.

Gareth Bale - Spurs - 83 RW

One of the biggest signings of the season, Gareth Bale back in Spurs white is a confirmed OTW for FUT 21.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

With a knee injury keeping Bale out for the coming weeks, it may be a while before we see him return to full fitness to be in the running for an IF upgrade. It may be an idea to pick this card up a little down the line once he’s fully fit.

Once he is fit, he needs to stay fit and start performing. Is it a guarantee that will happen? No.

Martin Odegaard - Real Madrid - 83 CAM

After returning to Real Madrid from his loan at Real Sociedad, Odegaard is certainly one to watch in his quest to break into the Real Madrid setup.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

Real Madrid’s fixture list looks interesting over the coming weeks, however, the big determinant for Odegaard will be whether he can break into and maintain a place in a competitive Madrid midfield.

This won't be an expensive card, so might be worth the punt in the long run but don't expect a lucrative return.

Allan - Everton - 83 CM

Everton look to be one of the hottest teams in the Premier League right now, and Allan in the midfield is one of the top new stars in the side.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

Everton certainly has some interesting upcoming fixtures, with Liverpool and Manchester United in the next 5 Premier League gameweeks.

While Allan does play a deeper role, just 1 goal or assist plus a man of the match performance could be enough to secure an IF.

He received some good upgrades last year and with Everton playing so well, it's likely we will see more.

He will be a fairly expensive card and an IF every now and then will see him stay in the meta for a long time.

Achraf Hakimi - Inter - 83 RM

The Moroccan pace demon from Inter is a confirmed OTW in Team 1!

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

With Inter flying high so far and Hakimi starting games out on the right-hand side.

He'll be involved in their attacking play a lot more than he was at Dortmund, meaning there’s a very good chance that he sees an IF boost over the coming weeks.

It may cost you a bit, but this is definitely a great pick up if you're running a Serie A squad.

Victor Osimhen - Napoli - 79 ST

Another Serie A OTW, the pricey Victor Osimhen will be one to watch as he tries to justify his price tag.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

Osimhen appears to be getting a good amount of game time in a strong Napoli attacking line, with the likes of Mertens, Insigne and Lozano all behind him, he should get a lot of goals this year.

Unlike other teams, he will offer Napoli something a bit different and could be a good option to switch things up.

He has some very ideal stats already that will only get better with some upgrades; not to mention he won't cost too much due to his limited links.

Nathan Ake - Manchester City - 79 CB

Following Bournemouth’s relegation, Ake has returned to the Premier League in a big way, signing for the Premier League runners up, Manchester City.

Upcoming Fixtures

Here are his upcoming fixtures.

Man City also has a very tricky few games over the next 5 gameweeks, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs all to face in the Premier League.

With Ruben Dias also signed as a CB, Ake may have to fight for a spot in the Manchester City defence.

Depending on how City lineup in the coming weeks, you can expect them to get some clean sheets and Nathan could get a few goals.

Ake's price may start quite high, but should slow down quickly.
