This guy is so good as a CM it's unreal. To me it almost feels like playing with Kante but he's better on offense. They are slightly different with the defensive work rates but if you are controlling Kimmich on defense, he can run circles around the attacker and win the ball back with his agility and aggression. Going forward he almost feels like he should be a CAM card with his shooting ability. If I have a shot in or even near the box that's a high quality look, there is a good chance the ball is in the back of the net. I know some people are kept away from this card by his work rates but I didn't even think about them before I used the card and he is amazing. The only thing that held me back from giving his card a 5.0 was the fact that EA advertised him as a CDM when you probably shouldn't play him there unless you have another CDM next to him. Play this card at CM and you won't be disappointed.

  • pace (good enough)
  • shooting
  • weak foot
  • ball winning
  • passing
  • defensive positioning (play him at CDM at your own risk)
  • that's about it...

Where do I start. for those who don't want to upgrade because of his moments I can tell you its definitely worth it. His low defensive work-rate is not even noticeable. I play him box to box next to de Jong and it works perfectly. he will push up even on stay bak while attacking but when I lose the ball he immediately drops back to defend. I will say I haven't noticed any defensive improvement from his moments, but the offe...

Icon Tier CM

So this is my second ever player review, and I felt that after using Kimmich for almost 20 games now, I wanted to share my experience while he is still available. I am currently using Kimmich in the 4-1-2-1-2 narrow at the LCM position. I have HL Delaney at the CDM spot, and ol' reliable Scream Sabitzer at the RCM. I debated on weather or not to start him at the CDM spot, but when i noticed his dribbling and passing stats w...

Better than Kante

This guy is better than Kante. His positioning is next to none. his speed and interceptions are some of the best i have seen on this fifa. for his price he should be in every persons squad. you will not regret buying this guy. played alongside base Ballack I cant think of a better midfield i have used this fifa. He never loses stamina. i have never tried shooting with this card as it wo...
