Happy Mertens to you!
By Chun13, 07-06-2020

After being super disappointed by the TOTS Lukaku, I was praying to finally have a TOTS like Dries Mertens... and oh boy how EA has finally delivered!


Scrambling all the fodder I could (yeah I'm one of the idiots who has done Lucas despite not having a PremL team...), I've managed to do him for around 100k and all the free TOTS cards and Reds (by the way, you guys are also packing reds that are never used in your WL team?).


What more to say than HE S DAMN AMAZINGLY GOOD!


I wished he'd be more expensive because given his price, I bet many many many people will do it.


I've used him in 17 WL games and he scored 18 goals and assisted 7 in ST position. My team is


  • Pace: 10/10 Body type and acceleration are a perfect match, he's a little rocket that will pop from one side of the pitch to the other while the animation freezes over the other skating players.
  • Shooting: 10/10 No 5-star weak foot? No problem, his right one is lethal and will more than often get in the goal (a lot with the assist from the goal pole). Finesse, long shots, power ones, try them all he's lethal!
  • Assist: 9/10 Nothing to say than pretty good.
  • Dribbling: 10/10 You love to use the right stick dribble? HAHAHAHAHA you're going to love it even more with Mertens, as a little devil dancing around the pitch, absolutely perfect.
  • Def: 5/10: Can get back occasionally to steal the ball, nothing else Messi would do.
  • Phys: 5/10 What do you expect? a Smart Brabus can Zigzag like crazy but of course will be crushed if frontally facing a truck, just avoid the frontal :-D


Conclusion: if you love Belgium, or super agile and fast players, if you wanna have fun again with this game, DO Dries Mertens Premium, for the first time in a few weeks, I've truly enjoyed WL again!


PS/ Here's the team I'm rocking with him:


ST Mertens Premium FB

LCAM Amuzu LSBC

RCAM Musonda LSBC

CAM Hazard Moments

LCDM Dembele LSCB

RCDM Witsel FB

LB Alex Sandra FB

CB Eder Militio Premium FB

CB Ramos TOTS

RB Hakimi TOTS

GK Ter Stegen TOTW






  • insane shooting
  • fantastic speed and body type makes him perfect to accelerate
  • great look of the card

450K is too cheap for this card!

From Gold 3 Player to Gold 1/Elite 3

I was saving all my coins in the beginning of FIFA to buy this card as my main man next to first Kai Havertz and later the Havertz IF, however by the time I had those 280k, he rose alreay up to 340k and was extinct... So I was longly thinking if he would be worth the 400k which I had to spend in the end for a fresh one and boy, I dont regret it at all <3 He scores from all positions, he is so agile and fast that his stre...

Hard one...

Mertens can easily score when put in the correct position but if faced against any strong defenders he will struggle.He will be pushed off the ball 9/10 with the 1/10 being if you get a lucky bounce.
