With the FUT 21 TOTW 4 set for 6pm today (October 21), it looks like a Ones to Watch player’s inclusion has been confirmed early.
In the the build-up to the release of the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team TOTW 4 lineup, we posted some predictions earlier this week, with players like Timo Werner, Marcus Rashford, Hirving Lazano and Jan Oblak all looking likely to be included in the latest TOTW squad.
But ahead of the release of TOTW 4, a Ones to Watch (OTW) player has already had their attributes updated in-game, which seems to suggest his inclusion in the latest TOTW squad. OTW cards are special items in which the ratings and attributes upgrade to match TOTW upgrades, which make them popular cards with the FUT community.

The player in question is Paris Saint-Germain full-back Alessandro Florenzi, who played a starring role in the Ligue 1 club’s 4-0 win against Nimes last weekend. The Italian defender scored a 77th minute goal, also keeping a clean sheet, which always helps with possible TOTW inclusions.
Despite teammates Kylian Mbappe and Pablo Sarabia both producing strong performances too, in which Mbappe scored twice and Sarabia scored once and registered two assists, it looks likely that Florenzi has sealed an inclusion in the TOTW 4 lineup, and therefore an upgraded OTW card too.
The leak comes from his in-game stats within the FUT 21 game mode, which have already been updated prior to the release of TOTW 4, which strongly hints to his TOTW 4 inclusion.
Above is a comparison of his gold card and his OTW card on the game, which are currently both rated at 81 overall. As you can see, his OTW stats have been upgraded, with his overall rating not yet changed. It’s likely that his new TOTW item will be 83 overall, which will then be matched with his OTW card.
Other players who could feature in the FUT 21 Team of the Week 4 lineup include Kylian Mbappe, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mikel Oyarzabal, Jonathan Bamba, Michael Keane, Jannik Vestergaard and James Rodriguez, but we’ll have to wait and see who could be included.
The FIFA 21 Ultimate Team TOTW 4 squad is set to be announced at 6pm on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, with the cards available in packs from 6pm on the same day.
The EA SPORTS FIFA Team of the Week will be revealed and released into packs at 6pm UK time every Wednesday this season.
