EA Sports have released FIFA 21 Team of the Week 5 for FIFA Ultimate Team and have mostly disappointed us again. Maybe it's time to let go of the TOTW format and try something new for FUT?

Robert Lewandowski's hattrick against Eintracht Frankfurt remains unappreciated, Sergio Ramos' penalty kick that gave Real Madrid the lead in El Clasico? Nope. Kylian Mbappé? Think again! FIFA 21 TOTW 5 is here and it's the weakest so far.


Oh, EA Sports, FIFA 21 TOTW 5 had so much potential. All the predictions went to the bin and instead we had a roster that's mediocre at best.

Bayern's Joshua Kimmich is the best player available. Other cards worth a look are Joe Gomez, Federico Valverde and, surprise, surprise - Paulinho. The Brazilian does not only come with his own strong card, but with the advantage of boosting chemistry with his countrymen.

Meme lovers are surely in seventh heaven now as Paulinho is not the only member of the meme squad to also be a member of the TOTW 5 squad. Leeds' Patrick Bamford sneaks in with an expectedly weak card, but hey, if you can't get good players out of TOTW, at least you can get some memes.
