Amazing Player with a huge minus
By greatkhali, 25-11-2019

Soo here we go. This is my first ever Review on FUTBIN so please dont hate me if there are some information missing which you are used to get normally. First of all I play Essien as the left CM in a 4-3-3 (4) formation next to Matthäus (88), where Matthäus plays the more offensive role with a engine chem style and Essien the more defensive role with a shadow chem style. Personally I never had a more complete defensive midfielder this year. His tacklings are on point every time. His passing is accurate and his 4 star weakfoot also allows you to play long passes on point. As a downside I have to point out that his shooting, especially from close range with R1 will never hit the target. Long shots are surprisingly good though.

Overall this is an amazing card for about 800 k. Surely his prime will be more a Gamechanger than he is. But at this point of the game where most players have at least one downside, this card will get the job done.

Feels so quick and cathes up to the opponent easily with shadow chem style

Decides "50/50" duels very often to his favor

Due to his physicality and high/high workrates he is very present in midfield

4 star weakfoot is a huge bonus for a more defensive oriented player like him.

His lack of stamina is a problem in extra time, so he definitely needs to be subbed.
