Remember that the FIFA 18 TOTW 1 informs will be officially confirmed on Wednesday, September 20th 2017, at 3pm (UK time).
Now, let's see the full list of FIFA 18 Team of the Week 1 predictions:
Lukasz Fabianski - GK - OVR 80 For the first time in a while now, the keeper we open the prediction with is not a punt, but instead a rather easy selection. Fabianski was vital for the Swans as they managed to come away with a point, away at Tottenham at Wembley. The Polish stopper made a total of eight saves to keep his clean sheet, claiming Man of the Match in the process.
Antonio Valencia - RWB - OVR 83 Although United ended up winning by four goals to nil, which makes Valencia's strike that much less important on the score line, the matter of fact is that three of those four goals came very late on. Valencia's goal stands out due to the caliber of it and is perhaps more important than it has credit for. Either way, a United defender with a goal and a clean sheet is unlikely to miss out.
Galvez - CB - OVR 77 Galvez scored the solitary goal of the game in Eibar's Friday night 1-0 win at home to Eibar. The CB picked up a perfect rating from MARCA and with next to no options from the division, I find it hard to believe that he will miss out.
Joshua Kimmich - RB - OVR 81 There were no less than four Bayern players which picked up a 1 rating from Kicker from their 4-0 win over Mainz. However, one player in particular stood out. That is of course Germany's rising youngster, Joshua Kimmich. The defender picked up the assist on three of FCB's goals and helped keep a clean sheet. Lewandowski, Muller and Robben are the others with a 1 rating.
Mathieu Valbuena - LW - OVR 81 There were multiple Turkish league options available to us. However, I've just gone with the one in the side: Mathieu Valbuena. The Frenchman should appear in TOTW on multiple occasions this season with him being more than capable of performing in the best leagues. He scored two of Fener's four goals in a 4-1 win to earn his spot.
Aranguiz - CM - OVR 77 Although it was Volland who found himself on the scoresheet twice during Leverkusen's 4-0 win, I believe that we will be seeing Aranguiz pick up the in-form. The Chilean midfielder scored once and assisted another two which saw him claim the best Kicker rating available.
Paulo Dybala - CAM - OVR 88 From a marketing perspective, EA had it easy when creating a top end side to introduce FUT 18. With players like Dybala, who is 88 rated, scoring a hat trick, everyone expects him to make the side. That is further solidified by the fact he picked up player of the week in Italy with a huge 9 rating.
Maximillian Philipp - LW - OVR 77 I believe that Philipp's official position is LW, however, you could also interpret it as ST/CF depending on the source you use. Either way, after he picked up player of the week in Germany for his two goals in Dortmund's 5-0 win over Koln, he will be included
Falcao - ST - OVR 84 Falcao has seemed to find his feet again in France after multiple unsuccessful attempts in England. The last couple of seasons have been good for him, picking up another two goals, and an assist this week, helping Monaco to a 3-1 win.
Dries Mertens - ST - OVR 86 Mertens is not the only player to make my side courtesy of two penalties this week. But with the Belgian being a big name, scoring a hat trick in a convincing 6-0 win and picking up an 8/10 as MOTM makes him almost impossible to ignore. Ghoulam is another player with a shout, picking up two assists in the same game. It's Mertens all day for me, though.
Sergio Aguero - ST - OVR 89 Although in a sense this would be a back to back IFs, in terms of FIFA, they do come in different games and thus we should be seeing an opening week Aguero. The Argentine scored three alongside picking up an assist in City's 6-0 demolition of Watford. With Aguero looking lively, it looks promising for City this year.
Robert Zwinkels - GK - OVR 68 There were a few keepers in line for the substitute spot but it largely comes down to two for me: Zwinkels and Matus Putnocky. Putnocky saved a penalty and made a total of six saves, keeping a clean sheet. Zwinkels on the other hand, made five saves in a 1-1 draw with Ajax. The deciding factor in this one came down to the fact Zwinkels was player of the week in the Dutch league, with a big time 8.5 match rating.
Simen Wangberg - CB - OVR 67 Over to Norway now, which is often a division which gets overlooked. With two goals and a clean sheet to his name, Wangberg is one of the best options this week though and thus should make the side with ease. Tromso went on to win the match, 5-0, which could turn out to be a turning point in their season.
Lee Frecklington - CM - OVR 67 This one could easily be overlooked due to it coming on a Tuesday, but with EA recently announcing an official partnership with the EFL, it should improve his chances. Should EA notice the match, there is very little doubt surrounding his inclusion after he scored three from midfield as Rotherham won 5-1.
Keith Ward - CAM - OVR 60 A hat trick from midfield is something you just can't ignore and with Ward doing just that for Bohemians in a 4-1 away win, he looks set to be included for the opening side.
Weverson L. De Oliveira Moura - RM - OVR 67 When it comes to the position of Oliveira, it is very questionable with multiple sources all having different positions for him. Regardless of where he played, we should be seeing him in Wednesday's side though after the Brazilian scored three of four Kashima goals in a 4-2 win.
Alexander Sorloth - ST - OVR 69 It's been a slow start for Midtjylland, who often dominate the division, but there will be multiple positives taken from their 5-1 home win against second placed Hobro. Sorloth scored three of those five goals, which makes him a prime candidate for Week 1.
Mikael Ishak - ST - OVR 68 With three German leagues in action, it is likely that we will continuously see at least one feature each week. This time we stay with a familiar league with the 2 Bundesliga, where Mikael Ishak claimed player of the week after scoring on three occasions for Nurnberg in an impressive 6-1 away win.
German Pezzella - CB - OVR 78 Although Pezzella failed to keep a clean sheet while other gold defenders did more on paper, the fact we have a reliable source in Gazzetta for Italy helps the decision process. The Argentine claimed an impressive 7.5 rating, which is not a score you often see defenders with.
Joaquin - RW - OVR 78 At 36 years of age, Joaquin still has it! The Betis winger found the net twice as the scraped three points via a 2-1 home win over Deportivo. With the Spaniard still claiming gold item status, I can't see him missing out on the side.
Pablo Perez - CM - OVR 77 The reserve section was difficult to select with various players looking set to miss out should EA opt for the reserves over the bench for additional gold items. That's the way I personally believe it should be done with lower items getting at least a chance. Perez could miss out should it happen, but with two goals and an assist from midfield he fully deserves his place.
Cedric Bakambu - ST - OVR 81 With limited La Liga options available in what was a quiet set of fixtures for them, Bakambu is by far the best option. With a maximum three-star rating and two goals to his name, I fully expect to see him included come Wednesday.
Josef Martinez - ST - OVR 76 Although two of Martinez's goals came from the penalty spot, I feel as though the fact Atlanta came away as 7-0 winners drastically helps his cause. It's not often you see such a convincing result, and with a hat trick present in that game, it's hard to ignore. To then make his case that much stronger, Martinez went on to score another hat trick in a 3-3 draw on Saturday.
