Torres in line for TOTW 34 appearance & OTW upgrade following hattrick

Team of the Week (TOTW) 34 is set to be released on Wednesday, 19 May, alongside the ongoing Team of the Season (TOTS) promo.

Amongst some outstanding individual performances this weekend, Ferran Torres stands out having scored a brilliant hat-trick against Newcastle United, including an audacious backheel volley.

Hat-trick Hero

Manchester City twice came from behind to win a Premier League classic against Newcastle in their first game since being confirmed as champions.

Ferran Torres scored a hat-trick for City and his superb backheel finish was the highlight of a remarkable game that swung back and forth.

SENSATIONAL SPANIARD: Torres scored a goal of the season contender against Newcastle

Joao Cancelo equalised, following Emil Krafth's powerful header, with a deflected effort into the bottom right corner and when Torres expertly turned home Ilkay Gundogan's free-kick 185 seconds later it looked as though the visitors could cut loose.

But having been forced to soak up considerable pressure, Newcastle levelled when City defender Nathan Ake was deemed to have fouled Joelinton, allowing the Brazilian to score from the penalty spot.

A poorly judged tackle by City full-back Kyle Walker handed the Magpies a second penalty just after the hour mark, with Joe Willock following up to score after Carson had saved his initial spot-kick.

However, man of the match Torres had the final word, guiding Gabriel Jesus' cross into the top right corner and then becoming the youngest player to score a league hat-trick for a Guardiola team, when turning in a Cancelo shot that bounced back off the Newcastle post.

One to Watch

A TOTW 34 appearance for Ferran Torres would see his Ones to Watch card receive an awesome upgrade.

EPIC UPGRADE: Torres' OTW card could be worth the investment in FUT 21

The Man City youngster's OTW card would most likely be upgraded to 86 OVR, with some quality stats.

The Spaniard already has four-star skill moves and a four-star weak foot and could have his pace boosted to 89 rated, along with 87 dribbling and 84 passing.

Coming in at roughly 40,000 coins, OTW Torres could be worth investing in FUT, as his price will rise once he claims his place in TOTW 34.

Rampant Rebic

A 12-minute second-half hat-trick from Ante Rebic helped AC Milan thrash struggling Torino 7-0 in Serie A on Wednesday to move a step closer to securing a return to the Champions League next season.

CROATIAN CLASS: The Milan forward was excellent against Torino

Rebic helped himself to his first of the three goals in the 67th minute.

Two more followed from the Croatian forward to give Milan the most comfortable of wins in what was expected to be a difficult match with local rivals Torino fighting for survival down the other end of the table.

This could be a second in-form card for Ante Rebic in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it could be rated as high as 85 OVR.
