FIFA 19 Ultimate Team of the Week: Mertens, Werner and Anderson lead TOTW squad

Comments()
There's plenty of pace in the attack to headline the squad for Week 8

Dries Mertens, Timo Werner and Felipe Anderson lead the way in the latest FIFA Ultimate Team of the Week for Week 8 of FIFA 19.

The Napoli forward is the big headliner after scoring a hat-trick while adding an assist over the weekend, and he's joined in the attack by a fellow Serie A forward option in Andrea Belotti as well as midfielder Joao Mario in what could be an interesting Italian-based attacking unit.

Anderson is also among the most enticing members of the squad, especially for owners of his Ones to Watch card, as the Brazilian is joined by countryman and fellow OTW Richarlison following standout performances in Premier League play.

Right wing also appears to be an interesting position as Ricardo Quaresma is joined by Thorgan Hazard in the squad this week while Ben Chillwell, Daley Blind and Alessio Romagnoli lead the defense.

Meanwhile, a pair of MLS players earned the nod for their performances in the postseason as Portland Timbers star Diego Valeri and Columbus Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen were named to the squad following knockout round and conference semifinal first leg wins in the playoffs.
