Atal is my favorite player this year. I've played about 150 games with his IF and as soon as his futmas came out I completed the sbc. I start him as a RB with 10 chem (with a deadeye) and when the game starts I put him into the left cdm in my 4-2-3-1 where he plays next to Kanté. Last year I was lucky enough to pack Gullit in my middle icon pack and Atal is not as far away from that as you could think. I mean, of course Gullit is better since he is one of the best players in the game, but Atal is a complete midfielder. His pace is amazing, his shots (with both feet thanks to his 5 star WF) is clinical, his passing is as good as anyone else I tried, his dribbling is more than good enough, his standing tackles and his way to read the game is not far away from Kanté. His stamina makes him run up and down the pitch for the whole 90 minutes and if it goes to extra time that's not a problem Atal (you see what I did there?). The tricky part is to fit him in the team with full chem and to find a player who can do a okay job at RB. It's not that often a full back is the most important player on the pitch but as CM/CDM he can change your game. If you got him, and haven't tried him out as a midfielder, you should do it right away. All the games I've used him in is in fut champs and I'm a gold 1 player.
Good in every aspect of the game.
Links and that you have to put someone else at RB.
