Although Vidal still lacks a little pace, the Chilean player consolidates his position as one of the best and most versatile midfielders in FIFA 21, especially in Serie A. Hakimi's card is also becoming more and more interesting.

  • +1 pace
  • +3 shooting
  • +3 passing
  • +2 dribbling
  • +2 defence
  • +2 physical

November 12 Update

Chelsea's players have had it good in FIFA 21 so far. The dynamic Ones To Watch cards keep getting boosted thanks to TOTW appearances. The latest Blue to get that sweet rating increase is center back Thiago Silva. The veteran is still on the slow side of the spectrum, which could be a problem, but almost no one can outdo him in the defence department.

The Rating Boosts for Thiago Silva

  • +1 pace
  • +1 shooting
  • +2 passing
  • +2 dribbling
  • +1 defence

Chelsea's Hakim Ziyech is the only Ones to Watch player to make it into the current team of the week - FIFA 21 TOTW 6. This brings his dynamic card up to 86 OVR.

Nélson Semedo (Wolverhampton Wanderers) and Gareth Bale (Tottenham Hotspur) also had high chances to get an In-form card, which caused a rapid increase of their values on the FIFA 21 transfer market. In the end, both were left empty-handed by EA Sports.

The Rating Boosts for Hakim Ziyech

  • +2 pace
  • +2 shooting
  • +1 passing
  • +1 dribbling

FIFA 21 Ones To Watch: The Hottest FUT Cards

Since an OTW card in FUT 21 could theoretically increase in rating every week, the special cards are extremely popular among players. This year, there are two OTW teams, and they are available in card packs until October 23. After that, you can only get the desired players by buying them on the transfer market.

Here you can earn some virtual coins: If a FIFA 21 OTW player is injured, the ticket prices will drop. If you then buy them and the player receives an In-Form card after his return, you can expect a substantial bonus.

FIFA 21 OTW vs TOTW: What is the Difference?

TOTW cards (Team of the Week) are released every Wednesday at 19:00. These are the so-called In-Form variants that a player gets if he has shown strong performance on the real football field.

A TOTW card has improved values compared to the normal Gold version but is not dynamic. Here you have to buy every new TOTW card that appears to get the best possible version.

The OTW cards are different: These cards increase in value each time a player receives an Inform card. So, the initial purchase price in most cases is much more expensive, especially in the Premier League. But you save the purchase of additional special cards.
