Chelsea and Arsenal stars named in FIFA 21 team of the week squad

Chelsea's Hakim Ziyech and Arsenal's Gabriel Magalhaes have both been named in the FIFA 21 Team of the Week 6.

Ziyech starred in the Blues' 3-0 win at Burnley on Saturday, scoring the opening goal as well as setting up fellow new signing Timo Werner for Frank Lampard's side's third.

The Moroccan international is really starting to show his quality for his new side, after scoring a few days before against Krasnodar in the Champions League as well.

The Chelsea attacker has a OTW (One to Watch) also, which will now go up to 86-rated following his new in-form card, which is a RW - as opposed to his base item which is a CAM.

As for Gabriel, the Brazilian centre-back was one of the standout performers for Arsenal in their 1-0 win at Manchester United on Sunday.

The former Lille defender showed his class on-the-ball, as well as his willingness to get possession back.

Gary Neville named the Gunners centre-half as his man of the match whilst on commentary duty for Sky Sports.

Neville said: “Arsenal’s defensive performance has been brilliant, from front to back, but the back-three have been good.

“Gabriel has been fantastic, so far I’d say he’s been the best player on the pitch, for me."

Gabriel's base gold common card now has an improved version - 82-rated - with a massive +4 upgrade after his tremendous display in Manchester.

The London duo have been named in FUT 21's sixth instalment of Team of the Week, alongside some other huge names from around the world.
