Clutchest Striker I have tried
By Kingofgorille, 27-01-2020

I've tried every Mertens cards this year and they all are amazing but this one is top tier. He is so fast and agile. Don't pay attention to his 41 strength, he feels more like a 65-70 strength, he is pretty hard to catch and he can fight. His 77 stamina won't bother at ST but maybe at CAM.


700k is a bargain and he is easy to link with Serie A players like Insigne Scream, Allan ou CR7. Honestly don't hesitate, just go for it. He finishes in all angles and scores a lot of goals in money time. In comparison with other players I've tried like CR7, Butragueno Prime or Best Mid, he has been way more clutch in big games for me.


I only played with him in Fut Champions and if Insigne Scream didn't screw up that many chances I would have been Elite 3. But still, Mertens scores in all big games and I finsihed Gold 1 (20-8).



  • Perfect positionning
  • 10/10 dribbles
  • Finishes in all angles
  • Clutch in big games
  • Cheap in comparison with Icons or other top players
  • Need Serie A players to link or Icons
  • Stamina if played at CAM

Incredible
By shayg20, 28-01-2020

I've tried every single Mertens card this FIFA, and this one without a doubt blows all the others away. In fact, for some reason I could never really play with any of his other cards, but decided to try this one because he looked insane. And I'm so happy I did. He fits the meta PERFECTLY, being small and agile, 4 star 4 star, finesse and outside the foot shot trait, like what else do you need? For only 700k, you can get a player that in my opinion will make your team until tots. 54 games, 82 goals, 66 assits.


I play him in a 3-5-2 ingame (which I know is not great anymore but I'm in div 6 and only really play for fun and don't really care about winning or losing) and keep switching between ST and CAM. He is brilliant in both, but I think because of his stamina he is probably better off as a ST in a 2 st formation cause if his great link up play. High-Low workrates means he's always in a great position whenever I need him.


For under 900k, I think he's one of the best ST out there, even better than Mbappe and Neymar. There's just nothing you can really fault with the card, besides maybe his stamina. With a maestro he's got insane shooting, brilliant passing for a ST and one of the best dribbling I've seen on this game. And he's live too! At this point he is injured, so I'd recommend picking him up now. And napoli managed to beat juve, and there next couple games are pretty good, so if they win them he will go up in price. But if this man gets an upgrade then I'd go as to say he's one of the best attacking non-icons on this game. I'm SO glad I got him, and I'm sure if you gave him a try you won't regret it.

Pace - For a CAM his pace is incredible, and even as a striker it's great.


Shooting - Finishing, Attack Positioning, Long Shots, Shot Power, it's all brilliant. And his finesses are another level.


Passing - He is that player that will provide the balls for your strikers, and set up goal-scoring opportunities.


Dribbling - World Class. He fits the meta exactly, being very small, and his agility and dribbling are another level.


Defending? - Despite his defending stat, and his work-rates, and his physicality, he will still go in for a tackle, or make an interception if he gets the chance, and usually comes out with the ball


4* 4* - It is perfect for this fifa.


Work-rates - More than ideal for a striker. He will always be up the pitch and ready

Physicality - He is very small, and if you get used to it, it's not really an issue. But he will get bodied off the ball a lot by strong cb's


Stamina - As a striker, he is fine. But as a CAM, he will usually have to be subbed off around the 70th

Not that good tbh
By RoadmanFifaPlayer, 28-03-2020

Mertens is a player i enjoy seeing play on the field so when i put my coins together and sold ben yedder i decided to buy him. As a 90 rated headliner with high agility, shooting and pace stats i was looking forward to playing with him. Unfortunately it didn't go as planned. He felt very weird when turning and he can't hit close shots when the goal keeper comes out. His finesse is OKAY but it's easily compared to that of Mbappe's. His dribbling is okay because of the agility though when i use my skill moves he usually lost the ball and gets stuck in an animation for wayyyyy too long for him to get back on defense or attack. His pace feels very good in my opinion but he isn't worth 500-520k. It should be more like 450-470k. Mbappe is MUCH BETTER and is a lot faster due to his 96 sprint speed and acceleration. His finesse is GOD LIKE whilst mertens Finesse shot is mediocre. it is to take into consideration that i play elite 3. in recent weekend league i got (19-2) with Mbappe instead of Meretens. I lost the 2 games because Mertens couldn't finish after the AMAZING passes De bruyne made. I would say that he fits for division 8-7.


If i were to choose between Mbappe (base), CR7 (base) and Mertens (Headliner) i'd definitely choose CR7 but Mbappe if you're on a budget. Mbappe is also cheaper than Mertens plus 5 star skills and is MUCH better than Mertens
