FIFA 20 Weekend League: TOTW 14 Red Player Pick Guide – De Bruyne, Salah & more

TOTW 14 is now available, we take a look at who you should be taking in your FUT Champs Rewards!

by Matt Thomas

Amidst the FUTMAS madness, Team of the Week 14 has been released into FIFA 20 Ultimate Team.

Another set of Weekend League rewards will become available on Thursday at 08:00 GMT, so it’s time to start considering who you will want to take in your red player picks!

TOTW 14 is definitely a small improvement on last week, with a couple of top tier cards in 94 Kevin De Bruyne and 92 Mohamed Salah.

Top-Tier Selections

These are the top-tier picks from this Team of the Week. If you’re lucky enough to see one of these players, I’d be definitely looking to select them to get them into your squad. 

In TOTW 14, while there are only two really top tier selections you can go for, Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah are certainly heavy hitters.

Kevin De Bruyne – 94 OVR

Kevin De Bruyne is certainly staking his claim for a Team of the Year spot, with an incredible weekend performance against Arsenal, securing two goals and one assist.

With a decent upgrade on his next highest card, this KDB finally gets over the 80 agility mark, and with shooting and passing stats well into the 90s, coupled with five-star weak foot, he’ll easily be one of the best attacking midfielders in the game.

With a +2 in defending stats as well, while high physical and being nearly 6’0” tall, this KDB could also be played as a box-box midfielder.

If you really want to get the most out of him as a complete midfielder, I’d suggest applying a Shadow chemistry style.

Mohamed Salah – 93 OVR

What a card this is for Mo Salah, receiving his first central card of the year after a brace at the weekend.

This card looks to be a decent upgrade on his next highest card, his 91 Team of the Group Stage item, seeing +1s on all pace, shooting and dribbling stats, with +2s on passing and physical stats.

Being an ST is the real key for this card though, opening up a tonne of possibilities for squad building that his RW version didn’t provide.

I’d look to play Salah with a Marksman chemistry style, just to bump up his Physical and Finishing a little to make him a true top tier striking option. 

Mid-Tier Selections

These are the mid-tier picks from this Team of the Week. They’re not the best players you could get, but they’re certainly not bad selections either.

88 Vertonghen – 88 Rated in the Premier League makes Vertonghen great for SBCs, however, being a 65 Pace LB hurts his usability.

88 Coutinho – If this card was a CAM, I’d say he’d be top-tier, however as a LW, having only 81 Pace does hurt Coutinho somewhat. Play him at CAM in-game.

86 Lecomte – 86-rated French GK. He’s SBC fodder at best.

86 Pizzi – 86-rated makes him useful for SBCs.

86 Sancho – Sancho is a decent card for sure, and being a LW does change things up. However, he lacks the shooting ability to make him a top-tier card.

84 Hernandez – A fantastic LB card in Serie A, and being French certainly helps him. The only slight issue is that there are so many good French LB options at this stage.

Low-Tier Selections

These are the low-tier picks from this Team of the Week. There’s no pretty way of saying this, consider yourself unlucky if these are the only options you’re receiving.

  • 85 Albiol
  • 83 Berghuis
  • 83 Paredes
  • 83 Campana
  • 82 Borja Valero
  • 82 Gervinho
  • 81 Olaza

Keep reading for EVERY FUTMAS item this December – we will continue to update this article as and when new items are released.

PRE ORDER FIFA 21

Axel Witsel (SBC)

As far as Bundesliga CDMs go, this Witsel card covers all of the bases. With 81 passing, 83 dribbling, 84 defending and 83 physicality, Witsel can sit in front of your defence and pull the strings while snuffing out any danger.

Moses Simon (SBC)

Want pace? Come and get it. FC Nantes’ Simon has it in spades. 95 pace and 87 dribbling, added to 81 shooting, make Simon an absolute menace. He strikes me as a great super sub for any lineup, or a difference-maker for Ligue 1 teams.
