West Ham United midfielder Tomáš Souček has capped a fine individual campaign by being named in the FIFA 21 Premier League Team of the Season.
The Czech Republic Footballer of the Year has been a consistently excellent performer over the course of his first full season in English football, scoring nine times in 33 league appearances to bolster the Irons’ quest to reach Europe.
A number of influential displays have also seen the 26-year-old – who moved to east London from Slavia Prague in January 2020 – record a hat-trick of Team of the Week inclusions in EA SPORTS’ premier football gaming title.
Earning many plaudits in the process, Souček has now been rewarded with a spot in the coveted Premier League Team of the Season – the first Hammer included since teammate Declan Rice in FIFA 19.
As a result, Souček’s heavily upgraded ‘Premier League TOTS’ card – in arguably the most in-demand Team of the Season launch each year – will be available in Ultimate Team packs from Friday for lucky players to pick up.

Souček’s well-rounded Premier League TOTS card bolsters his overall rating up to an awesome 91 – a huge increase on his initial rating of 81 in the game.
Already a popular pick for Premier League squads in the team-building game mode, Souček’s TOTS card boasts a defensive rating of 91 (up from an initial rating of 80) and physical attributes rated 93 (up from 83).
Other key boosts see the central defensive midfielder's pace increased to 83 (from 68); his shooting to 85 (from 69), his passing to 85 (from 73); and his dribbling to 86 (from 74).
Souček’s is the eleventh upgraded item a West Ham player has received in FIFA 21, following Team of the Week inclusions for Jarrod Bowen, Lukasz Fabianski, Vladimir Coufal, Angelo Ogbonna (twice), Jesse Lingard (twice) and Souček (three times).
West Ham United fans can collect Souček’s Premier League Team of the Season card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team packs from Friday 30 April.
