Another EA Sports Team of the Week release is upon us. The 31st edition is here and brings us some tasty in-forms once again. This group is stacked with a bunch of world-class midfielders with Manchester City’s Belgian maestro Kevin De Bruyne the highest-rated player in the squad coming in at an eye-popping 91. One of the best attacking midfielders in the game is now a right midfielder.
The list of midfielders doesn’t end there as PSG’s Angel Di Maria gets his third special card of FIFA 17, but remarkably he first true in-form card. Real Madrid’s Isco put on a heroic performance at the weekend, scoring a brace that included a late match-winning strike to beat Sporting Gijon.
Weirdly, this team doesn’t have a ton of pure striker options with Benfica’s Jonas and Spartak Moscow’s Quincy Promes being the only legitimate strikers.
The defenders this week is led by Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopolous, who scored a fantastic goal on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt that would’ve made Cristiano Ronaldo jealous. Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany and AC Milan’s Christian Zapata round out the list of defenders.
A pair of German goalkeepers in PSG’s Kevin Trapp and Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno are your shot stoppers in TOTW 31. Here’s the full list of this week’s in-form items:
All around great #TOTW with @DeBruyneKev, @isco_alarcon, @CarrascoY21, @XS_11official, @AnderHerrera and Di Maria! https://t.co/vJDLng0BJj pic.twitter.com/9tE2PW8Sb4— EA SPORTS FIFA (@EASPORTSFIFA) April 19, 2017
