Okay so where do I begin with the GOAT Eriksen?
First off I initially bought him as a cheaper alternative to Kevin De Bruyne who I was some coins away and thought why not just give Eriksen a go while I rack those coins up? Well I got the coins and then far more as I could not bring myself to take him out of the side. He was the play-maker of the team and when he was performing to his best, the team around him just received whatever balls they wanted.
He can get up and down the pitch with ease. Is not slow at all and can out pace quite a lot of CBs. I was honestly amazed by how good he actually was. Also if you are just around the box and can't find that killer pass, pull out a finesse shot with Eriksen, 80% of the time it will nestle into the top corner.
Admittedly out of the 54 games I played i would say around 70% were in squad battles, the rest i played in the FUT Champs DKT's. However he still played great no matter if it was against Legendary AI or another Human player.
For around 100k on Xbox he is just sublime. If were like me and need a PL CAM for your team, don't look any further than Eriksen.
I never actually got around to buying De Bruyne but honestly I don't think i will get him, I can't see him being better than Eriksen and you could use the extra coins on improving your team elsewhere.
- His collection of passes are outstanding, long balls, over the tops, short passes, through balls. Everything is just perfect.
- Very good at finishing in and around the box. Incredible finesse shots.
- Great pace and even better if you slap a chemistry style on.
- 5 star weak foot.
- 4 star skills
- Great work rates.
- Very good at dribbling as you could expect.
- Strength and aggression are low so you might want to not try and out strength some of the better CBs.
- He's not very good at defending so wouldn't play him CM or CDM.
At first, I've bought him as a temporary player, since I had some coins to expend and it would take too long to get enough money for Pogba. When I did it (months ago), my whole team was upgraded, Now, I have done another upgrade, in this new one, Eriksen went to the secondary team, but only for chemical purposes, Griezmann is great, but this guy, well, this guy is a total beast.
His passes are just perfect, he can't miss a single one, and when it comes to find player in a scoring position, he outstands any other player that I've tested.
His pace is totally ok, 75 that feel like 80 or something like that. Will not outrun most of the defenders, but if he has the advantage he'll keep it. I use this card with "finisher" style, it improves his fisical to a regular level, this combined with his size (not exactly a huge body, but a regular big guy) will allow him to protect the ball with maestry.
So, playing in the midfield, he'll receive the ball without any trouble, and keep it under controll until a magic pass shows up.
But that's not all, Eriksen is also a great finisher, his long shots are astonishing, if the oponent give him space, he'll do the job, left or right, doesn't matter, this guy manages to find the back of the net.
Dribbling is fine, I do not use it a lot in my game style (rather work with lots of passes), but when I needed, he did not let me down.
And what I like most about this guy, he gives you the winner so many times. Seriously, if the game is tough and I can't seem to find my way around, he pops up and solves it, by far the most decive player I've used.
In the end of the day, for his price he's the best you'll get, a top class player. I'm not sure about the IF and the Hero versions of him, would like to try, but they seem a bit too expensive.
Currently I'm also using Griezmann and if it wasn't for the chemic, I'd still be using Eriksen.
Pace: this is a pro and also a con. A pro because it feels like he's way faster than it should with 75 pace.
Passes: not too much to talk about it, 88 rating says for itself.
Shots: a beast, will find the net or get you a corner most of the times, if your oponet gives him space, he's doomed.
Pace: well, even saying that he feels like his way faster than he should, he won't step ahead most of the defenders, especially when carrying the ball.
I had just sold Dele Alli and accumulated 40k (from other items). I was thinking of a brand new playmaker to add to my starting eleven. I was going to pick up OTW Sigurdsson then buy Baines but then I just scratched that idea and I picked up Christian Eriksen and what a signing it was! Take in mind I switch to a 4231 in game with Eriksen at CAM and he is outstanding! his freekicks, long shots, finesse shots etc. imo worth every single penny and an addition to that singlehandedly won me the divison 3 title.
Stamina runs for days!
His freekicks most of the time go in unless I'm doing the freekick glitch
He sometimes gets bullied of the ball but usually recovers
76 finishing is fake but could be a tad better
Think its only me but he gets injuired frequently mostly to his upper body?!
He is my favourite player of my team. I've played with him more tan 200 games. His long shot is incredible, he doesn't fail anything. With hunter, he is really fast (sometimes he is faster than CB's like Bailly or Van Dijk). His agility in superb, and his passing is orgasmic.
- Sprint speed
- Long shots
- Defending (really really poor)
Christian Eriksen, what a player! For 80k he is 130k cheaper than KDB with a quality diference that doesn’t worth the coins – unless you have enough coins to buy all the guys you want - check out Eriksen National Hero Card.
This dude is amazing. He is slow, but KDB is also slow. KDB will definitely score more goals, specially in transictions due to his strenght and shooting. However this Eriksen card is better at organizing your atack due to his higher quality dribling and passing a long with his 5 stars weak foot.
So while KDB will stack up the stats at higher rate, everybody around your CAM will play better if you are playing with Eriksen (plus you will have 150k to spend on the players). I play at FUT champions, season and with friends. While KDB had 1,3 goals + assists per game, Eriksen got at least 1,1 (i think it got to 1,2).
Depending on your objetives with him, almost any ofensive chemistry card will make him close to what you want from him.
I strongly advice trying Eriksen as CAM for a PL team of 900k/1M coins.
