The Headliners promo in FIFA 21 is in its second week. If you haven’t been following, the promo brings live cards to the game that upgrade with every performance-based card a player receives. Plus, if their team wins four domestic games in a row, they get an extra bump. Essentially, it’s like a more valuable One To Watch card. And, EA Sports has brought the juice for the second team. I’m going to spend way too much money.
What are FIFA 21 Headliners?
Much like FIFA 21 OTW (Ones To Watch) cards, FIFA 21 Headliners are dynamic items which update based on real-life player performances. These items already have bolstered stats; they’re then boosted further when the corresponding player scores a TOTW, MOTM, Hero or Team Of The Group Stage item.
However, they’re even better than OTW cards in one specific way: the card always stays one OVR point ahead of that player’s latest in-form. So if next week Fabinho gets a TOTW item rated 88, his Headliners item leaps to 89. Swish.
Is there a full list of FIFA 21 Headliners cards?

Headliners cards are truly special, as they are dynamic: in addition to having enhanced values compared to in-form cards, they can also improve over the course of the 2020/2021 season based on the performance of their respective players. Additionally, they can also receive a permanent upgrade if their team manages to win four consecutive domestic league games.
FIFA 21 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Headliners Team Two is in packs until next Friday. Around then, I expect Team of the Year to kick off.

On the radar of some FIFA eSports fans for years now, Anders Vejrgang is a name you need to know. The 14 year old has been running laps around the competition in this year’s FIFA Weekend League.
The teenager is a FIFA player for RB Leipzig and often streams to 55,000 people on his Twitch channel.
His most recent triumph was reaching 270-0 back on December 13. He wrote on Twitter: “Thanks for the positive messages during the last days, it means a lot. I won’t let any negativity have an impact on me. I will chase my dreams no matter what.”
For reference, a clip emerged last week of Vejrgang losing the final of an online tournament, called the ‘Blacki Cup’, to a Bruno Fernandes penalty.
So he is actually beatable, but he is yet to taste defeat on FUT Champions.
Anders has tweaked his squad slightly from the last time we checked in, cashing in on the FUT Freeze promotion as well as some In-Forms and POTM SBC’s.
At the moment, the Danish superstar sets up his squad in a 4-5-1 formation like this:
GK – Edwin van der Sar (ICON) – 89
LB – Adama Traoré (Freeze SBC) – Wolves – 84
CB(Left) – Paolo Maldini (ICON) – 92
CB(Right) – Joe Gomez (In-Form) – Liverpool – 85
RB – Capita (ICON) – 90
CM – Roberto Firmino (Freeze) – Liverpool – 89
LM – Heung Min Son (POTM PL SBC) – Tottenham – 89
CAM(Left) – Ronaldo (ICON) – 94
CAM(Right) – Ruud Gullit (ICON) – 90
RM – George Best (ICON) – 88
ST – Kylian Mbappé (Champions League Rare) – Paris SG – 90
Anders Vejrgang now sits at 300-0 in FUT Champions with plans to push his world record even further out of reach.Already performing the unthinkable at such a young age his potential is truly limitless.
“People are hardly quitting matches at the moment against me,” he revealed.
“Sometimes I’m leading 15-0 and they do not quit. I respect every opponent and just want to win. I take it game by game and hope to stay unbeaten for as long as possible.”

In order to maximize your ability in FIFA 21, you need a formation that suits your style of play.
The best formation gives you the strongest balance that you need to win games. Obviously if your favourite players are wingers but the formation doesn’t have any, you can change formation after kick off using the d-pad. Also to have full chemistry you might have to start with a different formation and then switch it in game. Player chemistry is unaffected after the match starts. However subs only have 6 chemistry. Make sure you check our new tactics section showing how to transition between formations in game. Also players are more important than ever so check our best players and new best teams in FIFA sections. We will link here and tweet out when new areas are live.
Without further ado, here’s a look at the top 3 formations in FIFA 21;
The 4-2-3-1 narrow is arguably the most balanced formation in FIFA 21.
It lets you launch devastating attacking sequences without sacrificing your team’s defensive solidity. Pro players like FnaticTekkz and Boras Legend regularly make use of the 4-2-3-1 narrow formation for this exact reason.
The formation features one striker, three attacking midfielders, two defensive-midfielders, and a traditional back-four.
The attacking-midfielders in the 4-2-3-1 operate like wingers. They run into the flanks in an attempt to stretch your opponent’s defence, which, in turn, provides space for your striker to exploit.
If you’ve been struggling to find a balanced formation in FIFA 21, look no further than the 4-2-3-1.
4-4-2 formation FIFA 21
The original formation and a good one to use this year too. Not quite in our top 5 as it just lacks that creative edge unless using the very top players. Good for keeping shape and strong in both defence and attack. Top players have liked it more this year.
Advantages: Solid and well spaced out across the pitch attacking and defending. 2 strikers.
Disadvantages: No designated defensive or attacking midfielder. Have to use player instructions.
The 4-1-2-1-2 narrow is arguably the best formation for making the most out of FIFA 21’s dynamic attacking system.
It features two strikers and a CAM, three of whom combine to wreak havoc on your opponent’s defence thanks to the quick one-twos you’re able to play in the attacking third.
The 4-1-2-1-2 (2) formation is incredibly narrow, so you’ll need to bring your full-backs into play in a bid to give your team some added width. This has its advantages and disadvantages.
The extra width allows you to stretch your opponent’s defence, which, in turn, gives your two strikers ample space to work with up-front.
However, it leaves you susceptible to counter attacks because your full-backs might be high up the pitch instead of their traditional defensive positions, even if you apply the ‘stay back while attacking’ instruction.
On that note, we recommend that you only use the 4-1-2-1-2 (2) formation if you’re very good at attacking – that way, you can focus on outscoring your opponents.
At the end of the day, you set your team up in a way that works best for you, but if you want to break out and try something else, you can do much worse than these four formations.
