I'm very impressed by Arthur in the game and being a Barcelona fan, I must say I'm very happy with what EA made with him.
I play him with Rafinha in the center midfield in a 4-4-1-1 formation and I have to say, he bosses the midfield every game. If I wasn't convinced with Rafinha at first, I was immediatly convinced by Arthur. He is quick, always well positioned and very good with the ball. He is a perfect box to box player, he is good in every aspect (maybe not heading though).
Also he quite always seem to let Rafinha rise with the attack and he stays back a little to cover. This doesn't mean he can't shoot or score when he gets the chance.
Overall I'm very happy with him, I tryed Paulinho, Draxler, Luis Gustavo, Goretska, Vidal etc. but the one I like the most is Arthur !
Can't wait to see if he'll get some nice upgrades !
- dribbling and ball control
Arthur has a really well rounded card that is very convenient and usable in starter squads. Unfortunately, the card is lacking in a few key areas and isn't particularly exceptional at anything. As expected, his passing is good and he is somewhat comfortable on the ball, although he can't quite pull off the incredible turns that he does in real life, and he sometimes takes uncharacteristically heavy touches. He is capable of scoring from range, but his finishing from inside the box is only acceptable. He offers little to no physical presence in midfield, as he struggles to win headers and can often be bullied off the ball.
