FIFA 18: Why did EA Sports overlook such an obvious choice for their FIFA Team of the Week?

The latest FIFA Team of the Week has been announced - but we think there's one big name missing from the squad

EA Sports have announced the full line-up in their Team Of The Week, following the latest round of games.
But we think they’ve missed out one pretty obvious name. The team, that includes the likes of Man City’s Ederson and Leroy Sane, Burnley’s Matthew Lowton and Swansea’s Ki Sung Yueng, is pretty decent across the board.
But where on earth is Heung-Min Son?

The Spurs forward was the hero of Wembley at the weekend, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side beat Huddersfield 2-0. The South Korean netted both goals in the game, but has been overlooked in the team  picked the EA Sports boffins in place of Antonie Griezmann, Thomas Muller and Benfica hotshot Jonas.

Fair enough, I guess.

But the reliable striker isn’t even on the bench, which is taken up by Roma sensation Edin Dzeko – who notched twice against Napoli last week – and German veteran Mario Gomez.

Middlesbrough’s Patrick Bamford is there too, after his hat-trick against Leeds on Friday.

Of course, getting into the Team of the Week means you get a well-deserved ratings boost.

That includes Sane, who jumps from 82 to 86, while Ederson rises his from 83 to 87.

Griezmann – who’s potentially off to Barcelona in the summer – is up to 91, while Muller, who netted against Freiburg, is now a rather decent 89.

Still, we can’t help but feel a little sorry for Son.
