N'Golo Kanté - 89 - Normal
4.5
The bee that stings opponent's attackers
By cdimoff, 08-11-2019

So I am not too sure where to start from. Luckily enough I decided to try out Kante as a CDM and he definitely turned out to be the best CDM I have tried so far though I haven't tried any above 1m price tag. He is so fast and agile and is definitely the best interceptor in the game. He can intercept passes all game long without a problem and the highlight for me is definitely his 97 STAMINA. You can definitely feel the difference between his stamina and every other player's stamina. It makes a huge difference in matches that go to extra time and then you have a huge advantage if you have him in your team. On the 80th minute of a match he is usually between 70-80 % stamina which is absolutely brilliant for me.

He is so fast and agile and he can charge up to opponent's player so fast and his standing tackles are also very clean. I rarely get any cards or fouls with him due to his outstanding ability to stand tackle very well. He does that even from behind without fouling the opponents attackers. His passing is also a highlight for me as he gets quite some assists for me too. Not the best at long passes but short ones are on point. I do play him with anchor due to the extra strength needed.

He fits the META perfectly and his only problem as a CDM are most probably aerial duels. He is pretty bad at them and can win almost none of them.

I definitely recommend him if you are looking for somebody to counter the META strikers at this stage of the game.

One word to describe this man, WOW!

Well, where do I start? I was waiting for his price to go down a bit before I was going to buy him. Was watching Castro in the background and he just managed to pack a cheeky TOTY Kanté and was listing the one he had for cheaper, around 1,8 mill. I missed it I got frustrated that I missed such a good snipe, so decided to a PL Premium Players Pack, and the little French God popped out. But it was not before I used him, I un...

Probably one fo the best players I've played with as CDM, intercepts every ball, he's a very good box to box player.

A Meta Of Opinion

Often when i look at Inform and special cards close to the players base gold card i scratch my head and wonder how people could pay so much, a few points here and there, how much do you actually notice in game?This card changed my opinion on that.Kante gold card is great, his custom body type and dribbling animation mean that we can essentially ignore the majority of dribbling stats as he...
