TOTW 10 prediction: N’golo Kante, Ferland Mendy and Jonathan David
Toni Kroos, Lautaro Martinez and Diogo Jota also make our TOTW 10, which looks like it will include some of the most meta FIFA 22 players.
TOTW has its ups and downs in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. It may be in need of a revamp, but we still occasionally see really usable cards included in the promo. This week, we think we could see an upgrade for meta players like World Cup winner N’golo Kante, Losc Lille’s David and Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy. Let’s get into our TOTW 10 prediction:
N’Golo Messi is in the building
Football’s nicest man put on a midfield clinic on Saturday, scoring a goal and dominating midfield in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over a lacklustre Leicester City. For his goal, he picked the ball up in midfield and drove at the Leicester defence, before smashing a perfect left-footed shot into the top corner. World class.
So, we think he’s earned a dribbling, shooting and weak foot upgrade. We’ve given him a +8 shooting, +3 dribbling and we would love to see a WF upgrade – putting him at 4 star. It’s not Mbappe or Neymar, but it’s still a card that you would love to see in your red picks if you have a Premier League team.
David at the Double
He’s already had one TOTW this season, but he keeps scoring goals so he is back! He scored a brace against Monaco at the weekend: a cool penalty and a great run in behind and calm left footed finish. We think he’ll get a small boost for pace and shooting, plus maybe a physical boost for the way he held off the defender.
French STs are always in the shadow of Kylian Mbappe, but David can be really effective. If nothing else, this card should bring the price down on his first TOTW. Lille are also playing in the Champions League this week, so if he scores we could see some real hype build around this card this week.
For two years in a row, Mendy has been the best left back in the game – in FIFA 21 and FIFA 22. He scored a well-taken goal with his weaker right foot at the weekend, which we think will take him into TOTW. We might’ve gotten a bit carried away with the ratings here, but we’d love to see a super Mendy card included in the team.
It has been a mixed week for Ferland Mendy, after his image was wrongly used in stories detailing how Man City’s Benjamin Mendy has been charged with six counts of rape. Then, a French journalist wrote on Instagram about Ferland Mendy’s own history of violence and issues with alcohol. He put it behind him as best he could with a goal and a win, but something tells us this story isn’t over.
Steven’s in the huis
With the addition of the Eredivisie squad foundation objectives, it’s the perfect time for an upgrade! He’s going to have to compete with the David Neres SBC as an Eredivisie RW but he’s A LOT cheaper, if you want to build a team on a budget. He scored twice for Ajax at the weekend and must surely be due a place in TOTW.
With a few small upgrades to pace, shooting and dribbling, Berghuis suddenly looks like a great card. Alongside the foundations players, you’d have to say that he’d make a great cheap inclusion in your squad. Better get grinding those squad battles!
Best of the rest
Here are the other top performers from this weekend who could be included:
- Tony Kroos – Real Madrid – 89
- Rodri – Manchester City – 87
- Lautaro Martinez – 86
- Diogo Jota – 83
- Dennis – Watford – 83
