Team of the Week is back for a seventeenth week in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team and arrives TODAY!
TOTW 16 was an average week for in-forms - featuring Reus, Griezmann and Depay as the standout players.
The third TOTW of 2021 could be a bit less exciting with Wissam Ben Yedder, Luis Alberto, Thomas Muller and Lorenzo Insigne being the standout candidates.
Although the week is yet to finish for some teams, there could be some last-minute additions.
Here's what we know about TOTW 17 in FUT 21!
TOTW 17 Release Date
TOTW 17 will be released on the 20th January 2021 at 6PM GMT.
We'll post the new TOTW here once it is announced.
Team of the Week 17 Prediction
TOTW 17 could feature a very desirable set of IFs, plus a potential upgrade to a massively popular Headliner card.
Alisson - 91 GK
While the Liverpool - Manchester United tie ended in a 0-0 draw, Alisson was busy between the sticks, making 4 saves in total to keep a clean sheet, with 2 saves from Pogba and Fernandes shots being crucial. For that reason, we expect him to make it into the TOTW.
Layvin Kurzawa - 81 LB
The PSG LB scored the game-winner on Saturday in PSG’s 1-0 away win to Anger, which should be enough to earn him his first IF of the year.
John Stones - 83 CB
John Stones has hit a rich vein of form recently, and his 1st and 2nd goals for Manchester City in their emphatic 4-0 win over Crystal Palace will earn him an IF in TOTW 17.
Kieran Trippier - 86 RWB
A potential 2nd IF is on the cards for the Englishman abroad after he assisted Atletico’s first goal against Sevilla and kept a clean sheet in the 2-0 win.
Teun Koopmeiners - 84 CDM
Yet another decent Eredivisie player to add into the mix, with the AZ midfielder grabbing 2 goals and an assist in their midweek 3-1 away win to PSV.
Youri Tielemans - 84 CM
The Belgian assisted twice in Leicester’s 2-0 win over Southampton on Saturday, and with the highest match rating looks likely to earn his first IF of FUT 21.
Luis Alberto - 87 CM
In a week of 2nd IFs, Luis Alberto should earn the same after scoring a brace in Lazio’s big 3-0 home win over a top 4 Roma side.
Thomas Muller - 88 CAM
Yet another potential 2nd IF here for Thomas Muller, given that he wasn’t included in the TOTY nominee voting. Pivotal in Bayern’s 2-1 win over Freiburg, earning a goal and assist plus MOTM, he should be set for an 88 rated IF.
Lorenzo Insigne - 87 LW
A guaranteed IF for the Napoli man after he bagged 2 goals and an assist in a 6-0 thrashing at home to Fiorentina, his 2nd TOTW card of the year.
Sebastian Haller - 84 ST
Sebastian Haller has certainly adapted to life in the Eredivisie, scoring in each of his 3 games so far. A goal and an assist in a 3-1 midweek win over FC Twente, could earn him an IF to recognise his fine form following the transfer from West Ham.
Wissam Ben Yedder - 87 ST - Headliner Upgrade To 88
Easily the biggest TOTW story of the week would be an 87 rated 2nd IF Wissam Ben Yedder, who looks very likely after scoring twice in Monaco’s 3-2 away win over Montpellier. If he does receive an 87 IF, his Headliner card will upgrade to an 88 to stay one upgrade ahead of this new performance-based card.

How To Get In-Forms And Make Money Fast
The only way to get in-form cards is by either obtaining one in a pack or buying one off of the market place.
To increase your chances of getting an in-form, you can open more packs. The more expensive the pack is the higher probability of packing one (but the chances of getting one is not guaranteed.
SBC packs are usually far more lucrative than the regular packs, so if you can complete some of the SBCs, you may get lucky.
Throughout the year, EA usually releases a TOTW SBC that will grant your a random in-form item from all of the previous weeks of FIFA.
