Following great performances in the Premier League and Bundesliga respectively, Raheem Sterling and James Rodriguez are the men headlining a strong Team of the Week in EA Sports FIFA 19.

The Manchester City and Bayern Munich stars head up a starting XI that sees three players apiece from the top divisions in England and Germany – but no La Liga representation.

Sterling is joined by Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno following his fine showcase against Manchester United, while Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake forms part of a three man defence.

Rodriguez is complimented by Borussia Monchengladbach’s Nico Elvedi at the rear and Julien Brandt of Bayer Leverkusen in midfield.

A pair of duos from Serie A – Milan’s Lucas Biglia and Torino’s Andrea Belotti – and Ligue 1Monaco’s Wissem Ben Yedder and Lille’s Nicolas Pepe – also make the side.

Porto defender Pepe is the lone Primeira Liga representative.
