TOTW 8 Predictions

Each Monday, we will recap the top performances of the week/weekend and venture some guesses of who will earn a spot in Wednesday’s Team of the Week.




Player: Mohamed Salah

Reason: The Egyptian forward nabbed 2 goals in Liverpool’s 4-1 result against West Ham on Saturday. If he makes it in TOTW 8, his OTW card will get an upgrade as well.







Player: Kylian Mbappe

Reason: Mbappe contributed well in PSG’s 5-0 rout of Angers over the weekend. With 2 goals and an assist, the young French transfer might earn his first TOTW with his new club.







Player: Nicola Sansone

Reason: The Italian attacking midfielder had the only 2 goals in Villareal’s victory against Malaga over the weekend, surely putting him in the mix for a new card.







Player: Timo Werner

Reason: Scoring both a goal and grabbing an assist, Werner was the Man of the Match against Hannover on Saturday. Look for him to get his first inform of the year on Wednesday.







Player: Paco Alacer

Reason: The Spanish winger played impressively in a big match against Sevilla over the weekend. Putting Barcelona’s only 2 goals in the back of the net, Alacer, who doesn’t tend to get much playing time, could very well get an upgrade.







Player: Almamy Toure

Reason: Earning a Man of the Match to go along with his 3 assists, the 21 year old defender from Mali had an amazing performance in Monaco’s 6-0 win over Guingamp. I would be shocked if EA did not recognize him by putting him in TOTW 8.







Player: Gregor Balazic

Reason: Grabbing a goal as a center back is always noteworthy. Balazic went and did it twice in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Dinamo Moscow.







Player: Leon Clarke

Reason: The Championship forward has perhaps the best case for a TOTW honor. With all four goals in a 4-1 victory over Hull, Clarke unsurprisingly was MOTM and had a 10.0 rating on Whoscored.







Player: Leighton Baines

Reason: In a big 3-2 win against Watford, Baines got forward and grabbed both a goal and an assist. With limited other LB options for TOTW this week, look to him as a prime candidate.







Player: Florian Thauvin

Reason: The French winger played next to perfect in a 5-0 Marseille stomping of Caen over the weekend. Two goals, an assist, and a MOTM should be enough to get him into the TOTW 8.
