Packed him in my starter packs and plugged him in as a ST in 4321 and CCAM in 4231. Very quick on the ball, agile in tight spaces and making cuts with outstanding runs. He's been very good on the counter getting behind defenders and the 4* skills are especially important this year with manual defending. He's a good finisher for this stage in the game. I bought Jesus (always a favorite) but thought he was disappointing compared to prior years. Pricey at the moment but all good players (especially PL) are going to be inflated the first month. Overall really loved the card. If you can't afford KDB or Eriksen (or don't love Eriksen's pace) then I think Lucas is the best PL CAM imho.
Pace. Just hugely important this year especially with counterattacks and through balls being more OP.
Skills. A 4* or above is a huge advantage especially early because so many players are uncomfortable manual defending.
Shooting. For the beginning of the game his finishing is pretty good at a cheaper price than most OP PL attackers.
Agility. He's drawn a lot of fouls weaving around defenders coupled with sloppy defending with many players not adjusting from AI defending yet.
Links. PL and Brazil always nice.
His passing is just Ok for a CAM but just fine if you play him at ST. I used Deadeye and personally not a big deal.
Low strength but it has not been a huge problem so far, his agility lets you work around tight defenders and draw fouls.
