Player Review

90 - Icon
Still Amazing
By CoonAguero, 01-07-2020

Got him in the prime icon pack and to be honest i was quite dissapointed because i submitted a tots jordan henderson only to get another holding midfielder for my club. Nevertheless I gave him a go anyways and was quite surprised. Ingame i notice him alot, he has such a presence on the field wherin he is always at the right place at the right time. Even though his base cards stats say that he will just be used to get the ball and pass it to a more capable attacking player that was not the case. This man could start an attack as well which really surprised me.





Shooting(better than what his stats say)

passing (he could misplace easy passes sometimes which can be very annoying)

The bulldozer

This is the best card (midfielder) i have ever used , he is amazing. if you have the tokens for icons swap i would highly recommend. this card is about 10x better than Kante. He wins everything. i use him in a two cdm formation with Prime Roy Keane. He bully's people off the ball , he's super quick and he has insane passing. there are no cons with this card , and he can also rip a long shot.

Best CDM I've used

This guy has it all. I've used 86 and 88 Vieira, 85 Blanc, 91 Zidane, but Essien offers such a well rounded game compared to any of these.

Essien? Yes, He Can!

Well, after grinding so hard and feeling like I lost about 6 years of my life due to a combination of stress and what I can only describe as an 'almost heart attack', I finally had enough swap cards to redeem Prime Essien! OH BOY!!!!!After playing 30 FUT Champs games with this card, I'm left EXTREMELY pleased with my Icon Swaps choice. I normally finish between Gold 1 and Elite 3 and am a Div 2 Rivals play...
