I needed a pacey CAM with a bit more skip to his step than the CL Reus I had playing behind Lewandowski, and when this SBC popped up, I absolutely HAD to get him. What a priceless addition he's been. With Thiago behind him as the CM, Gnabry wide on the right, and Lewandowski as the lone striker, he spearheads a pretty lethal group. I haven't had him that long (less than 30 games), but he's already had multi-assist and multi-goal games. My favorite part of his game is how he bursts into space on the right side of the box, and from there, I have a wealth of options in that tight position:
1) Shoot - and he's got an excellent shot.
2) Square the ball to Lewandowski or my other CAM Sabitzer (who also has a rocket foot)
3) Take it all the way to the end-line and then chip a ball to the far post
4) Take it to the end-line and cut it back to either Lewandowski or a late-running Gnabry
Since I completed the Perisic and Boetius SBCs, my Bundesliga lineup has been nearly unstoppable on attack.
Pace, pace, and PACE
Great at getting into the box - from there, his finishing or finding a teammate on the cutback for a finish is excellent
I've never had to sub him out, even when playing back-to-back games
Not a good tackler.
Decent, but not particularly strong in the air.
