Player Review

Abdoulaye Doucouré - 86 - SBC
A machine of a CDM
By jxshfxrrell, 19-01-2019

I invested in the Premier League SBC around a month ago with all the players in my club so that I could do the SBC as soon as it came out. I took Doucoure over Vardy because he can just replace Kante in my team.

I play him CDM in 4-2-3-1 formation so as you can see by his stats for me, he doesn't get involved in many goals. I also keep him on 'stay back while attacking.'

When it comes to defending, this guy is everywhere for me. Very similar to Kante but with more height. Some of his tackles are game-changing and his strength is great.

Would recommend getting if you have a Premier League team as he is a game-changer and the packs are good too.

Stamina-98. Almost perfect, survives the whole game.

Defending-85. Very all-rounded other than his heading accuracy.

Strength- 85. Not many attacking players can outstrength him.

Passing- 80. 80 may not sound good but 89 short pass and 81 long pass is excellent. His FK accuracy and curve bring it down.

Shooting-82. For a CDM, this is great because if the ball does come to him on the edge of the box, he has a much higher chance of scoring than someone like Fabinho or Kante. 93 shot power and 83 long shots is great too.

Work Rates- MED/HIGH. Ideal for a CDM.

Links- Premier League and French. Soft links to Mbappe, Varane and Griezmann and strong links to Pogbs, Kante and inform Martial.

Pace- 72. Not the best but a shadow chem style brings this to 84.

Dribbling- 82. This sounds good but he has very poor agility and poor balance, reactions and composure.

Cost- Right now, the SBC is 400k. This is a lot more expensive than Kante but you get decent packs back.

An improved Kanté (Abdoulaye Doucouré SBC)

At first, I didn´t think he was worth it and I doubted about making the Premier League SBCs or not. I did them all anyways because I had opened a lot of Premier League upgrades and I had so many untreadeable players, so he barely costed me about 150k.Now that I have used his card for more than 30 matches (most of them ...

Midfield beast Doucoure

I made this review as soon as I could to give anyone debating wether to get him or not a few insights into him. He plays right cdm with futmas Torreira at left cdm. His H/M work rates are not an issue at all, I used Casemiro before hand (both on stay back) and they stay same position each. He is sometimes at the edge of the box for a follow up but is yet to score from me, although as he has such high shot power, all of his ...

Abdoulaye Doucouré

Abdoulaye Doucouré: WHAT A PLAYER!In my opinion he's one of the best CDM's in the game, because of his strength and controlling abilities. I think too many people underestimate this mans importance in a team and if I compare him to players like Fabinho and Kanté I can only say he's just better. Fabinho has a great card and defensively he might be almost as good, but Doucouré outclasses him in all the other ...
