Coutinho - 89 - OTW
Midfield Orchestrator
By PaulLeRoux, 12-10-2019

There is a lot to be said about Philippe Coutinho. I deploy him at LCM in a 4-3-3(2) with a hunter chemistry style. So far, he has racked up 25 goals and 11 assists in 55 games. Because of this output, and many other reasons, I have come to the conclusion that he is the quintessential midfielder for this iteration of FIFA.

Why Coutinho? Philippe Coutinho is a good choice for a Mezzala because he is a very skillful player and his price is cost effective, provided that you purchase him before he starts accumulating IF's. He is Brazilian with 5* skills, so he is much more ideal for skillers and easier to link to the Premier League than other Bundesliga CAM options such as Marco Reus. Coutinho has H/M work rates so he will pull his weight defensively. Movement, positioning and technical abilities are excellent and close to Elite 1 standards, and most importantly he is a clinical finisher from both inside and outside the box. 

Philippe Coutinho, being the new poster boy of Bayern Munich, possesses the potential and ability to accumulate 3 or 4 more IF cards over the course of this season. And with his current price sitting at around 220k, his OTW card can be purchased risk free.

There is an early opportunity to turn big profits through Coutinho. Given his strong start at Bayern, including a solid return of 2 goals and 2 assists in 6 games, there is much reason to be excited for his future, and his OTW card's market value, so stay tuned.

Technicals, pace, skills, links, work rates, could improve significantly in the future

Coutinho, The Man

Ive tried most of the OTW cards. I ended up liking this one the most. Coutinhos touch is phenomenal with vision and passing equally as good. His shot is great as well, which makes him a threat anywhere around the box. He works well on the wing with solid passing, and cutting in for a shots, and if you want, makes an even better CAM if you need him their. (switch him in game) His nationality is perfect for linking, so he fit...

Pretty good, he has the sticky, he dribbles like a mad lad, he sadly doesn't have the finesse shot idk why ea. BUT he has bad composure and it feels like he's not able to score sometimes with the HAWK or HUNTER chemistry style, but with a SNIPER, he's a beast, scores, dribbles like a god, passes like a god, and also comeback sometimes somehow to defend and make pressure. HOWEVER...
