EA released the English Football League Championship ‘Team of the Season’ items Tuesday, which is the second batch of many upcoming TOTS in the coming weeks.
The cards will be available for four days, giving dedicated Ultimate Team players enough time either pack the items and/or build up the coins to buy them from the transfer market before the spike in their prices.
Some of the standout cards from this bunch include Newcastle United’s electric English striker Dwight Gayle, formerly of Crystal Palace. The 27-year-old has a phenomenal 22 goals from 30 appearances this season, and has helped propel Newcastle to the top of the EFL table. Take a look at his item.
Another big name to look out for in the EFL TOTS is Brighton and Hove’s RM Anthony Knockaert. The Frenchman received an ‘EFL Heroes’ card earlier this year, and to be quite candid, both cards have exactly the same base stats so, unless you’re a collector, there’s no need to go after this one.
Jonjo Shelvey, also of Newcastle, gets a pretty nice 85-rated card in this batch too. His noteworthy base stats include 88 Passing and 86 Physical for a CDM item.
Last, but surely not least, there’s the 87-rated beast of a center-back Pontus Jansson of Leeds United. Okay, so maybe he’s not amazing but 68 Pace, in addition to 88 Defending and 87 Physical, is nothing to scoff at. According to Futhead, his price is just over 20,000 coins so he may be a good super-sub off the bench.
