The Belgian forward and Dutch centre-back headline a squad loaded with big names following a number of international matches

Romelu Lukaku and Virgil van Dijk lead the way in the latest FIFA 19 Team of the Week in Ultimate Team.

This week's team is based heavily around the international break, with Lukaku scoring twice against Switzerland in Nations League play to headline the squad.

For his part, Van Dijk scored a goal of his own while marshalling a clean sheet against Germany in one of the more talked-about fixtures of the international break.

The two aren't the only Premier League stars in the fold, though, with Eric Bailly, Bernardo Silva, Marko Arnautovic and Aleksandr Mitrovic also being named to the Week 5 squad.

Serie A was also well-represented with Juventus leading the charge as expected. Wojciech Szczesny was awarded an in-form item despite a pair of Nations League defeats while team-mate Alex Sandro's goal against Saudi Arabia earned the Brazilian the nod.
