The EFL TOTS is here, and FUT players can expect items from each lower-tier English league to feature.

These players, primarily bronze and silver items, will receive massively upgraded Team of the Season cards.

Unfortunately, there was no voting for any of the minor league squads, but here is who to made the EA Sports EFL TOTS.


The FIFA 23 EFL TOTS will end on May 14, 2023, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. It was released mid-way through the Premier League TOTS.

This squad will last for one week, where the next minor league TOTS squad will release. The Saudi TOTS is expected to be next.

FIFA 23 EFL TOTS Predictions

Including our honorable mentions, we correctly predicted eight of the 12 players in the EFL TOTS.

Starting XI

Michael Cooper – GK – 68 87

Plymouth looks set to get promoted, and Cooper has been excellent between the sticks. There are many good options for the ‘keeper spot, but the Argyle man makes our team.

Connor Roberts – RB – 86 → 92

Burnley has dominated the Championship all season, so seeing multiple players in this prediction won’t be surprising. Roberts is first up, and the Welshman deserves a TOTS item.

Jake Cooper – CB – 73 → 88

Millwall conceded less than a goal a game on average, making them one of the most challenging teams to face in the Championship. Cooper is the leading man at the back, and his performances have them in the playoff places.

John Egan – CB – 74 → 89

Sheffield United look set to return to the Premier League, and vice-captain Egan has led them there. With club captain Billy Sharp barely starting, the Irishman took the leadership role and excelled.

Leif Davis – LWB – 65 → 87

Ipswich has broken their points total in any season this year, and Leif Davis has been a vital part of the defense, which rarely concedes.

Elliot Watt – CDM – 79 → 88

The Scotsman may be sitting mid-table for Salford, but he has more assists than anyone across the lower-level leagues.

Oliver Norwood – CDM – 73 → 88

Like Egan, Norwood has been solid throughout the Blades campaign this season. The pair have made their side hard to beat.

Josh Brownhill – CM – 75 → 90

Brownhill has been exceptional under Vincent Kompany this season. The Englishman has played multiple roles this year, performing well in each.

Chuba Akpom – ST – 72 → 87

Chuba Akpom is by far leading the goalscoring charts this season. The Middlesborough man has almost hit 30 goals for the season.

Nathan Tella – RW – 84 → 92

Burnley supporters will be hoping that Tella becomes a permanent signing next year. With Southampton going down and Burnley going up, Tella will likely want to stay.

Jonson Clarke-Harris – ST – 71 → 87

Clarke-Harris is always amongst the goals; this season, he is leading the charge for the League One golden boot. FUT fans may remember his overpowered TOTS item in FIFA 21 and if he gets one, it may just be as good.
