Trent Alexander-Arnold POTM review
By zossiie, 22-01-2020

Just a small review of my experiences with this card to give you doubters out there an example of what to expect from this card.


I did his SBC cuz I am a fan of him in real life. I had his normal gold card which I used in icon swaps and at the start of the game and he was solid for me. But most importantly he gave me a strong link with my VVD which I needed in my squad (I play a bundes/prem hybrid).


Obviously I started him out at RB and tbh he was abit underwhelming as I expected alot more from an 88 rated POTM card.

I also tried him at CDM while doing the objective score with a defender. Because of his defending and passing stats he performed quite well here in comparison to my IF Wijnaldum. IMO he is much better used at the CDM position instead of RB. My advise would be don't do him if you dont need the strong links, just go with a cancelo/walker instead.

  • Passing --> not a single bad pass was given, could easily send my wingers deep with crisp passes
  • Dribbling --> makes it easier to get out of difficult situations when being pressed by the opposition
  • Defending --> he had great defensive awareness and made good runs to cut passing lanes or make good tackles
  • Free kicks --> managed to bag a free kick goal with him
  • Strength --> he felt quite weak on the ball
  • Workrates --> due to his high att workrate he sometimes was out of position and was vulnerable during counters

66 in the Midfield

Some people have been saying he's a lame card in general but I found TAA to be a very good CDM alongside Sissoko. With Shadow on him, he essentially was a CB but above the defensive line. His tackles were amazing and does a great job at stopping the attack from reaching the defense. He also has the added bonus of being a good free-taker and nearly squeezed in a couple of them for me. I'd say the only downsides are his shoot...

Best RB I’ve used this year

Before this card, I was using FUT Birthday Cancelo and never really let him get up in the attack. After getting this TAA card and allowing him to get involved in the attack, my attack has changed dramatically. A lot of people I see use this card or his identical TOTY card as a CDM or CM, but I think he’s best where his card meant him to be. His speed and defending is top notch for his position, slap an a...

Trent

I'm lucky enough to pack this card from PL upgrades (and 96 De Ligt from 2 player upgrades). Because I already have 92 Zanetti from Icon Swaps, I thought of moving him to LB and put Trent at RB. But after I saw his stats again, I feel like they would be wasted as a fullback. 99 shot power, maxed out passing, brilliant agility and balance, 4 star weak foot. So, I start at him at RW on 7 ...
