Philippe Coutinho Earns EA Sports Team of the Week Honor

New, comment

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Philippe Coutinho has been named to this week's EA Sports' team of the week. His two-goal performance at Stamford Bridge, including the match-winning goal, was enough to get him a spot among the world's best for this week.

The Brazilian joins the likes of Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus (REUS!), Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny, and Inter Milan's Samir Handanovic in this week's team.

For those of you that play FIFA Ultimate Team this is common knowledge, but for those that don't, what this means is that these players will all receive a special card for the next week. Their In-Form card is a special design and features a boost in statistics. It's only available in Ultimate Team packs for one week until they're taken out forever, only leaving what's on the market for the rest of the year.

From my personal experience, Coutinho is one of my favorite players to play with in this year's game. I cannot wait to get my hands on his In-Form card.

Will you be opening packs to try and get him?
