share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

The FIFA 21 TOTS party will begin this Friday!

Not only will we have the Community TOTS, as voted for by the FIFA community, but we'll also be seeing the EFL TOTS head to the Ultimate Team servers.

The best performing players from the Championship, League One and League Two are eligable, and here is everything you need to know.


There is plenty to choose from here, with no fewer than 72 clubs worth of players in the mix for a spot in the EFL TOTS.

It is likely that we will see the vast majority of the players coming from the second tier of English football, though there are some lower league names who are worthy of a spot.

With that in mind, here is who we are expecting to see.

Starting XI

Ben Foster (87 OVR)

In goal we're going to opt for the Cycling GK himself, Mr Ben Foster.

The veteran Englishman has been a mainstay in the Watford side this season, with the Hornets boasting the best defence record in the Championship, having shipped just 28 goals so far as they look for a Premier League return.

Teemu Pukki was the Premier League's standout performer at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, but his form quickly fell away.

The 25-year-old has a whopping 39 goal contributions (29 goals and 10 assists) so far this season, he'll be included without a doubt.
