Before I start I should say I am a Liverpool fan so some of what I say about this card could come from the enjoyment of getting to use a jacked off Origi card.
None the less I saw the sbc and did it despite knowing he looked in no way meta, however I'm not sure what it is about his card but I think its his positioning matched with his shot power that makes he actually really good in game and definitely good value.
I played him in the 41212(2) to start (7 games) next to prime Butragueno with Bobby Firmino behind them and I just waste feeling it so I changed to a 4321 with Martens on the LF and Butra in RF and this is when he cam to life and started scoring hat tricks in most games and he became the most enjoyable card I have used this Fifa.
However when I played him in the 41212(2) he was significantly worse so I would say that he probable does need wingers or wide CAMs next to him to make his type of positioning work.
Ability to hold players off
Ability to win headers and score corners
Balance & Agility to an extent (u notice that he does turn slower than players such as mertens but he still does it quick enough to get round defenders)
