Happy Team of the Season time to all you FIFA 17 players out there!
EA Sports released their first big TOTS on Friday, a total of 23 players (11 starters, 7 subs, 5 reserves) receiving special cards. A total of six Chelsea players made the cut: Cesar Azpilicueta (at center back!), Marcos Alonso, N’Golo Kante, and Eden Hazard in the starting lineup, David Luiz on the bench, and Diego Costa in the reserves.
As you’d expect, Hazard is the highest rated player in the whole Premier League. His 98 rating is just one off the highest possible rating for an Ultimate Team card. However, let’s not praise EA too much for being logical. Tottenham Hotspur had seven players selected, more than the league champions.
All six of the Chelsea cards look amazing but for me Marcos Alonso is the most incredible just on the basis of where he started the season. When FIFA 17 first launched, he was a 77-rated non-rare gold card. Now he’s got a 90-rated TOTS card. Pretty impressive stuff.
