The ongoing FUT 21 TOTY promo could have a big impact on this week’s TOTW 18 lineup, with various big name players ineligible.
Despite Kylian Mbappe, Joshua Kimmich and Robert Lewandowski all showing superb form for their domestic clubs this weekend, all three are ineligible for a TOTW inclusion due to be involved in the recent TOTY promo. Bayern Munich midfielder Thomas Muller is also ineligible, after his TOTW 17 inclusion last week.
With only a few Premier League games taking place between the TOTW selection dates, the FIFA 21 TOTW 18 lineup will likely be dominated by the other major European leagues, with PSG, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and FC Barcelona all registering league wins. However, players from Leicester City, Man City, Burnley, Man Utd and Aston Villa could feature.
