The FUT 21 TOTW 5 squad could feature two of the biggest stars in football this week, with Neymar and Robert Lewandowski in superb form.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward has a great chance of being named in the FIFA 21 Team of the Week 5 lineup on Wednesday, with the Brazilian providing two assists and earning a Man of the Match award in the Ligue 1 side’s 4-0 win over Dijon on Saturday.
However, fellow PSG stars Kylian Mbappe and Moise Kean, who both scored twice in that game, also have a chance of being included, but Neymar is the most likely candidate to earn the TOTW 5 in-form.

Lewandowski was named in the TOTW 2 lineup earlier this season, but after scoring a hat-trick in Bayern Munich’s 5-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt, the Polish striker could get his second in-form of the FUT 21 season on Wednesday.
In terms of OTW players, Liverpool forward Diogo Jota could be included in the TOTW 5 squad, after scoring the winning goal in the Reds’ 2-1 win against Sheffield United. Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez was among the goals, scoring late in their 2-0 win against Real Betis, whilst Leroy Sane also found the net for Munich, but it’s hard to see the winger being included over Lewandowski.
