TOTW 21 Gundogan all but guaranteed as POTM runs riot

We've got another TOTW squad heading into FIFA 21 on Wednesday, February 17, and we can guarantee that this man will be in the squad.

Here is what to expect from TOTW Ilkay Gundogan.

Manchester City running riot

Manchester City opened up a seven-point advantage at the top of the Premier League after dismantling Jose Mourinho's Spurs side at the Etihad on Saturday night.

Ilkay Gundogan was involved in all three goals, winning the first-half penalty before grabbing yet another brace in the second half.

The January Player of the Month has been a dominant force for City this season and is a shoo-in to pick up a first TOTW card of the year.

TOTW 21

As his POTM card is exclusively available via the SBC market, Gundogan is still eligible for a spot in TOTW 21.

His goal scoring form is likely to see the German upgraded from an 83 OVR to 85 OVR, which would be one rating shy of his POTM special card.

SILKY ILKAY - Gundogan is in the running for the PFA POTY award

Gundogan played in his familiar double pivot role next to fellow goalscorer Rodri, but with the German slightly further upfield, we can expect to see Gundo given a central midfielder (CM) role.

One thing that is for sure, his shooting will see a big boost.

Predictions

Who else could we see joining the Manchester City maestro next Wednesday?

Aston Villa stopper Emi Martinez was once again the hero for the Villians, as the Argentine made a string of impressive stops to help his side pick up another point in their quest for European football next season.
