He's for sure my best CDM on this Fifa (even if I don't have icons or players such as Kante). One of the most complete players at his post, with excellent stats that convene for it. His height is satisfying but he remains agile. As I put my William Carvalho in a sac, I decided to give him a try (and I had high expectations since Carvalho is REALLY good), but I've never had to complain about him so far, he never did a big mistake (whether getting a red, scoring an own goal or even giving my opponent an assist with a ball loss or bad pass).
He's definitely worth the coins
- Stamina, he can run the whole match long
- Good calls, he usually goes forward as I recover the ball and try to give solutions
- Really good defending, not the kind of player who will get the ball with only one tackle (such as Carvalho, Javi Martinez, and all those colossus) but he's a true bully, comparable with Matuidi
- Accurate short passes
- Wins headers most fo thee doesn't necessarily score them, but you'll get a corner for sure if that's on target
- Really decent dribbling. He's not Modric, of course, but it's clearly enough for his position.
- I don't feel that comfortable with his long passes, perhaps is it me but I feel like he could do much better, especially since I put backbone on him
- Because of his workmates, he tends to feel a bit too attracted by the ball and it's common to see him out of position, almost in the opponent's penalty box.(especially, his pace makes up for it)
- He doesn't have the optimal workmates for a pure CDM (as he's the only one in my team), so don't forget to order him to stay back when attacking
