Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might be receiving his first Team of the Week item in FIFA 21 after a strong performance against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

The Arsenal forward had struggled to find the back of the net recently before nabbing a brace against Newcastle. The three points moved Arsenal into the top half of the table alongside the club's fifth straight clean sheet. Aubameyang signed an extension at the club following the club's FA Cup campaign and Community Shield win against Liverpool.

The Gabonese striker looks poised to receive his first in-form of FIFA 21 for Team of the Week 17.

If Aubameyang receives a TOTW card on Jan. 20, he'll be the third Arsenal player to receive an in-form in the last four FIFA 21 TOTW squads.

Bukayo Saka featured in TOTW 14 for his performances against Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion. Kieran Tierney followed Saka in TOTW 15 for his showing against West Bromwich Albion.

Aubameyang received Arsenal's lone Europa League Road to the Final card as the Gunners continue to progress through the UEFA competition. If Aubameyang receives an in-form, he'll likely go up to 89 overall and receive a position change from ST to LW.

He'd join Saka, Tierney, Gabriel, Bernd Leno and Thomas Partey as Arsenal players to receive TOTW cards in FIFA 21.

FIFA 21 TOTW 17 will be announced and released in packs on Jan. 20 at 1 p.m. ET.
