Dries Mertens - 87 - Normal
4.0
This Card is Incredible
By zbol, 08-10-2018

Mertens is a benefit to any team. With his incredible 89 pace and his 94 agility, he can slip in and out of defenders with ease. Combined with his 90 dribbling, getting into a one on one situation with any player will usually result in a positive outcome. 80% of the time, Mertens will beat the defender, unless the defender is Pique. Which brings me to my next point, Mertens's physicality and height. Mertens has so many positives that there must be a negative, which happens to be his height. Mertens small height of 5'7" results in him being on the recieving end of shoulder to shoulder challenges, where he ends up getting battered most of the time. Aerial challenges are a pain in the backside when Mertens is contesting a header against Peter Crouch, as he will never get to them. Aside from Mertens's lack of height and strength, he is a quick and speedy player that will beat anyone in a 1 on 1. Mertens also has a miraculous shot, scoring goals from 30 yards out like it's no ones business. Mertens is an incredible player and deserves to be in any team.

The Perfect CAM....Striker?

There is a lot to talk about when someone mentions Mertens and the way he should be played. Usually, conversation involve sentences like these; "O noes, he smull, -NO Stenthg butt he fastt >:("These usually don't answer anything and leave you with more questions than you had in the beginning.So where should you play Mertens? Fam, I don't know. What I do know is that I play him as a striker. So......

The beast affordable CAM

Mertens is quite possibly the best affordable CAM in the game. I was lucky enough to pack him in my Gold 3 rewards. Whether he is coming off the bench or starting he is a joy to play with. His long shots are insane and usually go in and feels very agile on the ball. Although quite weak and slight, he often intercepts the ball when the opposition is playing out from the back. His passing is also superb

what a player!

Before buying him, I really have doubts cos he's bloody expensive for a serie a player with an in form card. but he's the only quality player for me to green link with my hamsik. but once I play with him, he feels so smooth! he felt like an assassin, creeping out of nowhere to make the run and scores the goal. he either scores a hat trick or don't score any in a game. he shines when your opponent gives spaces and he will pu...
