FIFA 22 Career Mode gives fans the chance to act out their ultimate fantasy – building a club from scratch. This means players will be looking for the best midfielders to drive their new FIFA 22 Career Mode team to success. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

After the stadium is in place and the kits have been designed, attention will turn to fill out the actual squad. The middle of the park is where games are won and lost, so here are the best midfielders you should sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Best midfielders in FIFA 22 Career Mode

A strong midfield is just as important in FIFA as it is in the real sport. In many ways, the engine room is what shapes the team you are looking to build.

Picking the right combination of midfielders is vital, whether it be a defensive-minded enforcer to sit in front of the defense, a playmaker who can pull strings, or someone more box-to-box who can do it all.

Finding the right man for the job can be a tricky business, but luckily there is plenty of world-class talent in FIFA 22 to your midfield, a force to be reckoned with.

While we’re still waiting for EA to officially reveal the player ratings for FIFA 22, these are the midfielders we’re expecting to be the very best in Career Mode.

Best young midfielders

The key to any successful Career Mode is planning for the future. Buying a world-class player might work in the short term, but how will the team look in two or three seasons’ time?

This is why it’s important to look at young prospects when dipping into the transfer market for the best Midfielders in FIFA 22 Career Mode so that you can grow and develop them into the stars of tomorrow.

FIFA 22 is packed with plenty of midfield wonderkids for you to snap up, so here are the very best that you should try and sign. We’ll update his list with potential ratings once we get our hands on the game.

Best cheap midfielders

If we’re being completely honest, a lot of the players we’ve listed so far will take a lot of investment if you’re going to bring them in.

But, of course, not every signing has to break the bank. Sometimes a new player is needed to be a reliable backup or a short-term replacement after someone was poached by another club on deadline day.

It can be difficult to scout the right player when you’re working on a budget, so here are some great cheap midfield options that won’t cost too much.

We’ll update this list with prices once FIFA 22 is released.

EA have announced another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. We’ve got everything you need to know, as well as the full FIFA 22 TOTW 19 lineup.

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 19, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams and we’ve got all the details listed for you.

Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is incorporating real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the new FUT Heroes.

One of the mode’s oldest promotions is ‘Team of the Week’, which offers players a weekly batch of upgraded cards, based on real-life player performances the previous week, to help build out their squads.

We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW news, so be sure to check back here every week.

Here are the full updates for FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 19.

FIFA 22 FUT TOTW 19

The FIFA 22 TOTW 19 is here, and it’s full of big names from across the world. For those who like to try out new cards and have the funds to do so, FIFA’s TOTW is great.

Check out the full squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 19 here.

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.

Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Player’s can not receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While an in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.

In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.

To qualify for this additional stat-boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.

When is the TOTW released?

Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.

Each new team is normally Tweeted out around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT with a full look at every upgrade.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Team of the Week 19 predictions: Kimmich, Rashford, Bergwijn

FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 19 is set to drop on January 26, and we’ve predicted who will get an in-form card with major stat upgrades.

TOTW 19 predictions FUT

With club football approaching international break, there were plenty of memorable games and goals last week. EA Sports are set to drop some new in-form players in packs, and here are the players we think will feature in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s Team of the Week 19.

Each and every week, EA drops the Team of the Week into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to reward the stars who made the headlines in the previous round of fixtures.

The chosen squad of players receive a special card in packs for the next week for FUT fans to hunt down and use to improve their teams.

Next up is Team of the Week 19, so here are our predictions of who will be included in the next FUT TOTW lineup.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week 19 release day

PSG players in FIFA 22

FIFA’s Team of the Week drops weekly, so players can expect TOTW 19 to release on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, with an announcement from EA usually coming shortly before.

TOTW cards replace the normal cards of the player in packs for the duration of the week, meaning that the upgraded card is the only version it is possible to pack for seven days.

Each wave of in-forms remains in packs until they are replaced by the next Team of the Week on the following Wednesday.

Team of the Week 19 predictions

Chelsea players celebrating in FIFA 22

All five of Europe’s top leagues were in full swing last week with marquee matchups taking place in several competitions.

For his miraculous performance as a super-sub that produced two goals including a game-winner in the span of two minutes, Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn‘s place in TOTW 19 is inevitable. Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby scored a hat-trick on Saturday as his side thrashed Augsburg 5-1.

Elsewhere, Joshua Kimmich is a strong shout after assisting two goals and earning Player of the Match praise. Both Marco Verratti and Frenkie de Jong operated as midfield maestros for their respective clubs and should be included in TOTY 19 thanks to their game-winning goals.

Finally, all three of Virgil Van Dijk, Sergio Ramos, and Thiago Silva got on the scoresheet for their clubs. It’s unlikely that all three center-backs will be featured but two of three should be expected.

We’ll have to wait until Wednesday to find out the official squad for Team of the Week 19, but, until then, here are our best predictions.

  • Alisson Beckerย โ€“ Liverpool โ€“ GK
  • Nick Popeย โ€“ Burnley โ€“ GK

  • Kyle Walker-Petersย โ€“ Southampton โ€“ RB
