As the release of FIFA 19 is so close, EA has started to reveal some content for the new game. Each week, a “Team of the Week” is revealed. This includes boosted statistics for players who played well in the previous week. The associated items are known as “in-form” items.
There are many ways that these cards can be used and gained. You can get these cards from packs, or from the transfer market in the game. Also, the Team of the Week is a great way to make coins at the start of the game. It will be interesting whether or not we see pack odds for these items in the packs. We covered an article about pack odds that you can see here.

As mentioned before, the players that are included in the Team of the Week are the players that had the best performances from world football in the previous week. This week, we have some great players that will most likely cost a lot of coins at the start of the game.
Hirving “El Chucky” Lozano was a great player in the last edition of FIFA Ultimate Team. The Mexican wonder-kid was often used as a super substitute in most teams. He also managed to secure a plethora of special items, from in-form cards to being featured in the Team of the Season squad.
He received an in-form item this week after scoring two goals in a 7-0 victory for PSV at the weekend.
Hazard is known for being one of the most exciting players in the world. His high pace, agility, and skills ensure that he is a great player to have in your FIFA 19 team. This item will be one to watch out for in the early stages of the game.
He secured his in-form item after getting a hat-trick (three goals) in a 4-0 win for Chelsea.
The German superstar is well known for having blistering pace as well as being clinical in the penalty area. Werner is a great player to include in your Ultimate Team squad for these reasons.
He has his in-form item after two goals in a 3-2 victory for his side.
How to trade with in-form cards
This method does not necessarily include the purchasing and selling of in-form items. However, if you watch games from all leagues at the weekend, you can invest in Gold items for players that have a good game. An example of this is Hector Bellerin. If he has a good game for Arsenal, you should buy a lot of gold Hector Bellerin items. This is because he will be out of packs for a week if he gets an in-form item; however, the demand for his item will still be there.
