Roberto Firmino named to EA Sports Team of the Week

Alongside some big names

After a brilliant performance on the weekend against Watford, you’d expect Liverpool to get some kind of accolades coming their way. EA Sports has obliged by putting Roberto Firmino in their Team of the Week.

For Ultimate Team junkies like myself, this is an exciting time. This means that Firmino will receive a special upgraded card for the next week that will be available in packs. The Brazilian’s regular gold card is already a popular one among players as he’s featured in many Premier League-themed squads. His upgraded in-form card should be even better in-game.

Sadio Mane likely should’ve made it too, however he was just in it two weeks ago and they try to avoid doubling up so close to each other. Personally, I would’ve loved to have seen Emre Can get honored too. His card is fun to play with as well and an in-form version would be icing on the cake.

Nevertheless, a Firmino in-form card is inbound. Will you be opening pack to try and pull him?
