Being a PSV fan, I had to try him out, and boy was I not disappointed! I was able to get him for just 120k using some players to the likes of Di Maria moments and 87 Politano, and some untradeables, of course. Im planning on doing Boateng as well and could have easily used these players for his sbc, however, I was have been looking for a good 5* WF player for some time so I took my chance. Also, first I had Sarr, who has been incredible for me as well, but was very predictable so therefore decided to give Stevie a shot. Now, I have only used him for 10 games in WL of which all I have won, but here is my review on him using a sniper chem style and playing him in a 4-2-3-1 formation as right CAM:
Pace (95) 9/10- His pace is just right to outrun most defenders and perfect knowing he has a 5* WF. Because it is difficult for your opponent to predict which way you will go once you need to pass the last defender, once you pick a side to run to he will accelerate and it will be too late for your opponent to react before he gets the chance to shoot. Same when using drag backs, he is fast enough to profit from a defending mistake.
Dribbling (98) 10/10- This is my favorite stat on this card. Together with his physique, he is able to hold off any defender and easily dribble past each one. He keeps the ball close and using a sniper his agility will be 95, therefore it is also easy to turn direction. His composure is bumped up to 88, which some may consider a bit low, however, I have not really noticed it.
Shooting (93) 9/10- Because of his high shot power, using the near post technique is really OP. Especially because of his 5* WF, most shots will go in, does not matter what side you come from. Finesse shots have also been just fine, 87 curve has been doing the job.
Passing (86) 9/10- Better than I expected, I like to play in small spaces so I only make short passes. Therefore, I have not really noticed whether his long passing is good or not.
Defending (45) 5/10- Somehow he has scored 2 headers...
Physical (80) 9/10- This is what sets him apart from the other players imo. His 87 strength makes him stronger than most backs and even some centre backs, therefore he is able to push his way through the defence by always winning 50/50 balls. His stamina (88) has been just fine for me, I keep him on stay forward and free roam so he can easily play 120 minutes.
- 5* weak foot
- 4* skills
- Shot power
- Short passing
- maybe for some people his composure
- his crosses arent the best, but they are not bad as well
- for me, he has been perfect thus far
