89 - Headliners Upgrade
The Soon to be Best Left Back
By theunderratedfutreviewer, 23-01-2020

Alex Telles has had a very special place in my heart since FIFA 18, he was my left back for the entirety of all 2 of those FIFA's and will soon be my endgame left back from what I can tell by playing him. I picked this card up at the very start of the headliners promo and started playing with him instantly.

The first thing you can notice is he is dominant in his domain, if any player walks into his position he charges at them at breakneck speed and will get the ball guaranteed. Now, this is no exaggeration, it is like he has magnets in his foot, the ball is just attracted to him when he tackles, and this is only for the the headliners, I player 500 games with the inform, but it had nowhere near the same effect. His dribbling is superb for his position, especially compared to everyone else in the same position, and his passing is accurate enough to lay through balls for a winning play.

His shooting and physical are no problem, unless you play him at ST or CB, the shooting will obviously be irrelevant, but his strength may be a let down on 1 on 1 challenges, but, when tackling, the strength is completely no issue, you see no difference because he would be able to catch up to anyone other than TOTY Mbappe or Headliners Adama.

Telles tots quick review

So, its only been a few hours but I played 6 games and those were enough to convince me that he is one of the best LB in the game. I tried to just see how he would position and how he would track players like Adama on his own. I have always been a fan of Telles in fifa and reviewed his 86 inform earlier in the game cycle and I must say, there is a clear and huge step up in quality! I'd suggest an anchor for max pace and def...

Ever since fifa 18 saw him get a neat tots card, He has been my favourite LB and most reliable. Last year, his UCL Live was in my squad for 600 games and so far, his normal card has played in each one of my games in fifa 20. This card played the last 11 games for me, I feel that You should use an Anchor or Guardian to boost either the pace and strength, or the agility and dribbling. I set him to stay back ...

Value for Coins

The fact that this guy is less than 10k compared to players like Mendy or Marcelo that are over 30k is ridiculous. He's Brazilian so he's relatively easy to link. He's very strong in the ball and his passing is great. He has enough stamina to keep up with pacey attackers during the whole match.
