TOTW 21 has arrived, and it's one of the best yet.

Romelu Lukaku, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and John Stones all feature in what is a star-studded squad.

Future Stars Fofana Leaked

TOTW 21 is arriving in 30 minutes time, but it's not just in forms that EA is eyeing up.

The Future Stars promo ends on Friday, and it looks as though Wesley Fofana could finally get his long-awaited promo card.

INBOUND - It looks as though Fofana will be part of the TOTW 21 hype

It's another big leak from @fut.investments, who believe the Leicester City star will join the promo this evening.

Could it be a Silver Stars collab? Or maybe another Academy card to grind after.

We'll know soon enough.

TOTW Auba Confirmed?

It's hardly the most groundbreaking news you'll hear today, but it looks as though Aubameyang has been confirmed for TOTW 21.

88 OVR - There was no mention of Aubameyang's in-game stats on the leak

@fut.investments have shared an image of a 'leaked' 88-rated TOTW Aubameyang to their Instagram account and to be fair to them, they rarely miss the mark.

Having bagged a quickfire hat-trick against Leeds on Sunday, it comes as no surprise to see the Gabon international feature.

2IF Messi Inbound

It's been a tough 24 hours if you're a Barcelona fan.

The Catalonian club's UCL hopes have been left in tatters following a 4-1 thrashing off PSG at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

LETHAL - 95-rated shooting would make Messi unstoppable

But it's not all bad news, as it looks as though Messi could be arriving in TOTW 21.

The Argentine grabbed two goals in his sides 5-1 win over Alvares on Saturday, which should be enough for EA to include the star in their weekly promo.

Mbappe tears it up

Of course, Champions League items are not included in the Team of the Week, but we do believe some Man of the Match items are on the way for European performances.

It's hard to look past Kylian Mbappe now, with the FIFA 21 Cover Star netting a hat-trick against Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16.

We don't know when such cards could come in, but the prospect of another rare Mbappe item is mouth-watering.

Release Date

The TOTW 21 squad will be released on Wednesday, 17 February at its usual time of 6pm GMT.

All the new cards will be available in packs for one week only, joining Future Stars Team 2 until Friday, 19 February when the promo squad will be replaced.

We think it will be the Winter Refresh that replaces Future Stars in packs on Friday, 19 February, potentially bringing out some new basic cards too.

Packs are not the only place to pick up in form cards though, as these players make up the Weekend League reward picks on Thursday’s.

Predictions

One man almost certain to be included in TOTW 21 is Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabonese striker scored a sensational hattrick in a 4-2 thriller, with English youngster Bukayo Saka once again impressing.

Dynamic Cards

Will we see any Ones to Watch (OTW) or Headliners cards included in this week’s squad?

Unfortunately, it does not look like any we will see any upgrades this week, although Wissam Ben Yedder is the most likely.

STREAK WINNER - Ben Yedder will remain +2 ahead of his highest IF card

The French forward scored twice in Monaco’s 2-2 draw with Lorient. Ben Yedder has already earned his extra boost after Monaco’s excellent winning streak since the turn of the year.

One player who has received his streak bonus +1 this week is Eintracht Frankfurt’s Martin Hinteregger.
