Here's what we know about TOTW 18 in FUT 21!
TOTW 18 Squad
TOTW 18 Release Date
TOTW 18 will be released on the 27th January 2021 at 6PM GMT.
We'll post the new TOTW here once it is announced.
Team of the Week 18 Prediction
TOTW 18 features a great lineup of stars. However, some big performers have to be left out due to TOTY inclusions, or previous TOTW inclusions.
Mbappe, despite securing 2 goals and an assist in a 4-0 will miss out due to a TOTY inclusion, as will Joshua Kimmich with his hat-trick of assists for Bayern in their 4-0 away win to Schalke.
Similarly for Bayern, Thomas Muller will also miss out despite grabbing a brace of goals due to his inclusion in TOTW 17.
Nick Pope - 84 GK
Burnley was the team to break Liverpool’s near 4 year unbeaten home record on Thursday, and Nick Pope was key in keeping the Premier League champions out. 6 saves and a clean sheet means he should be picking up an IF this week.
Juan Cuadrado - 86 RB
An assist, clean sheet and MOTM performance may be enough for Cuadrado to earn a SIF this year, with links to the TOTY Ronaldo that will also be in packs at the same time!
David Alaba - 86 CB
With both Muller and Kimmich unable to receive TOTW items for their top performances against Schalke, we expect Alaba to take their place given that he scored an impressive 30-yard effort in the final minutes, keeping a clean sheet as well in the 4-0 win.
Nico Elvedi - 84 CB
Plenty of goal scoring defenders this week, with Gladbach defender Nico Elvedi scoring twice in their 4-2 home win over Borussia Dortmund on Friday.
Rodri - 86 CDM
A potential IF could be on the cards for Rodri, who put in a top tier shift in Manchester City’s midfield in their 2-0 win over Aston Villa. 4 key passes, one of them resulting in an assist for Bernardo Silva and a very good match rating make him a likely candidate.
Frenkie De Jong - 86 CM
Providing Frenkie De Jong doesn’t receive a TOTY Flashback item during the week, he should be set for his first special card of the year, being pivotal in Barcelona’s 2-0 away win over Elche, scoring and assisting in his MOTM performance.
Sergio Canales - 84 CM
The Real Betis man has been snubbed of a couple of IFs this year, but TOTW 18 could finally be his call up, scoring twice in a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo on Wednesday, as well as a goal against Real Sociedad 3 days later.
Moussa Diaby - 84 RW
Certainly, a week to forget for Dortmund, as Bayer Leverkusen also saw them take home 3 points, with Moussa Diaby scoring and assisting in their 2-1 win.
Eden Hazard - 89 LW
Eden Hazard hasn’t had the easiest time at Real Madrid. However, he looked back on form against Deportivo Alaves with a goal and assist and a solid match rating.
Andre Silva - 84 ST
With few high rated attacking options this week, Andre Silva could make the starting 11 of TOTW 18 with 2 goals in a 5-1 away win to Arminia Bielefeld.
Mauro Icardi - 86 ST
With Mbappe unable to take home a TOTW 18 IF for his 2 goals and assist against Montpellier, it’s likely that Icardi will be the next best option, as he also had a goal and assist in the 4-0 win.

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.
