FIFA Ultimate Team - Team of the Season - Barclays Premier League
By EA SPORTS Football Apr 30, 2014
Each week FIFA Ultimate Team assembles the best players from international and club competition around the world and rewards them as part of our Team of the Week. Now, we celebrate the best players from club competition based on their performances during the course of the 2013-14 season.
This week’s Team of the Season focuses on the Barclays Premier League.
With the season he has had, there was little doubt that Liverpool’s Luis Suárez would be named the Professional Footballers’ Association Players’ Player of the Year for 2013-14. The 27 year-old Uruguayan has been an absolute beast on the pitch, accumulating 30 goals and 12 assists. Along with teammate Daniel Sturridge’s 20 goals this season, the duo are key reasons the club has had such a memorable Premier League season.
Manchester City fans are spoiled when it comes to goal scorers. With so many incredible names, including Sergio Agüero, it can be a bit of a surprise that their defensive midfielder Yaya Touré is their leading scorer. In his first three seasons with the club, he amassed a total of 18 league goals. This season, the Côte d'Ivoire international has 19! Touré has become the quintessential player, one who can score goals and still make it difficult for the opposition to do the same. If other clubs haven’t already been afraid of what he can do, they are now.
While Chelsea FC’s goal production pales in comparison to the other clubs they are currently competing with, there is no question their best player has been midfielder Eden Hazard. The PFA Players’ Young Player of the Year for 2013-14 has had an incredible second season with the club, leading them with 14 goals and seven assists. At only 23 years of age, Hazard’s full potential has yet to be seen and Chelsea supporters cannot wait to see what comes next.
The name Adam Lallana is one that people around the world are starting to hear a lot of. The 25 year-old Southampton winger has had his best season in the top flight, with nine goals and six assists. His fine performance this season was rewarded with a recent call up to the England national side and is expected to be a large part of the side’s push for glory this summer in Brazil.
Everton’s defenders Leighton Baines and Séamus Coleman have had incredible seasons. In 30 league matches this season, the 29 year-old Baines has scored five goals and earned three assists. Meanwhile for Coleman, who recently moved into the Right back position, he scored six goals in 34 matches played. That total eclipsed his previous best of four, which he did back in 2010-11 while playing on the right of midfield.
Although he spent a large chunk of the 2013-14 season nursing a thigh injury, when Aaron Ramsey was on the pitch for Arsenal he was one of their best players. In 21 league matches, the Welsh international amassed nine goals and eight assists. Having recently signed a contract extension with the Gunners, supporters will be looking forward to what he does for them in the coming years.
