EA Sports has dropped the latest Team of the Week for FIFA 19 Ultimate Team and Mohamed Salah is leading the side's attack.

The 26-year-old Liverpool star's latest in-form card is a standout addition, mainly for the fact that he has been changed from a right winger to a striker.

Yes, the Egyptian international's 90-rated card can be played as the lone striker or played alongside another player upfront. He has 94 pace, 91 dribbling, 88 shooting, 47 defending, 83 passing and 76 physical.

The developer has included Salah in Team of the Week based on his performance over the weekend, in which he bagged a hat-trick against Bournemouth in Liverpool's 4-0 thrashing.

N'Golo Kanté has also earned himself an in-form after his fantastic performance for Chelsea against Manchester City, while Manchester United star Juan Mata has grabbed himself a spot in the Team of the Week's starting XI.
