These players form the TOTW which is available to challenge for coins on FIFA Ultimate Team. These players are also available in packs and on the transfer market, so look out for them!NOW LISTEN BELOW: EVERYTHING going on this week in FUT!
Sergio Asenjo (OVR 82 – IF 85)
Sergio Asenjo’s clean sheet shut out Atletico Madrid as Diego Simeone’s side could not find a way past the Spaniard. Villarreal have failed to win any of their last five games, however a clean sheet against Atletico should give them confidence when they travel to Sevilla next week.
Asenjo could see his overall rise as high as 85 this week. His basic 82 OVR card is available for just 800 coins on PS4 and 1,200 on Xbox One.
Raphael Varane (OVR 85 – IF 87)
What more could you want from a centre back? Raphael Varane got himself on the scoresheet as well as preventing Espanyol from any sort of comeback. The 2018 World Cup winner put in a solid display and has firmly established himself among Europe’s elite.
French centre back Varane costs a whopping 200,000 coins on PS4 and 148,000 on Xbox One. This week his overall could increase to 87 should he be selected in TOTW 13.
Joachim Andersen (OVR 78 – IF 82)
Joachim Andersen was a colossus at the back as Lyon dominated Nimes. Two first-half red cards meant Nimes rarely troubled the Lyon defence, but the Dane was not content with just his defensive duties. The 6’4” defender lashed home a fierce drive from 25 yards to make it 4-0 on the night.
Lyon defender Andersen’s performance could see him leap to 82 overall this week. The giant Danish centre back costs 800 coins on the transfer market.
Ramy Bensebaini (OVR 77 – SIF 82)
Borussia Monchengladbach’s remarkable start to the season continued as they overcame Bayern 2-1. Both goals came courtesy of Algerian left back Ramy Bensebaini, who had only scored once prior to the game. Monchengladbach remain top of the Bundesliga, seven points ahead of Bayern.
Bensebaini’s heroics could earn him a second in form of the season. His first IF card will cost around 12,000 coins, while his basic card costs 1,400 on PS4 and 2,100 on Xbox One.
Lionel Messi (OVR 94 – SIF 96)
Barcelona racked up five goals this weekend, with Lionel Messi responsible for three himself. A superb hat-trick that included two curling efforts from outside the penalty area blew Mallorca away despite Ante Budimir’s brace.

Naby Keita (OVR 82 – IF 85)
Naby Keita grabbed a goal and assist as Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-0 at the Vitality Stadium. In what was his first league start of the season, Keita showed the ability that prompted the Reds to splash £54 million to sign him in 2018.
Keita’s display could earn him a place in TOTW 13 with an IF card rated 85 OVR. His basic card is available for under 1,000 coins on both consoles.
Marco Reus (OVR 88 – IF 89)
Dortmund thrashed Fortuna Dusseldorf 5-0 as their attack was firing on all cylinders. Marco Reus took his personal tally for the season to eight goals as he scored twice and provided the assist for Jadon Sancho’s first goal.
German magician Reus costs 72,500 coins on PS4 and 66,000 on Xbox One. An IF card this week could be rated 89 overall.
Jadon Sancho (OVR 84 – IF 86)
Like Reus, Jadon Sancho was too much for Fortuna Dusseldorf scored twice and recorded his eighth assist of the season too. The English wonderkid was a constant menace throughout the game playing predominantly from the left-hand side, his IF could see a positional change to LW.
English star Sancho’s double could see his overall rise as high as 86. Sancho’s basic card costs 4,700 coins on PS4 and 5,400 on Xbox One. His UCL RTTF card costs in excess of 200,000 coins on both consoles.
Heung-Min Son (OVR 87 – SIF 89)
Heung-Min Son provided one assist against Burnley; however, he will remember the game only for his solo goal. Running the length of the pitch through the entire Burnley team, Son scored one of the goals of the season as Spurs dished out a hammering to Sean Dyche’s men.
