83 - Normal
Long legged interceptor
By MCF4dden, 03-11-2019

I've used Rabiot since relatively early in the game and he's still in my squad, while i have upgraded most other players in the squad. He plays as one of two CDMs in a 4231 alongside Matuidi, who was way more expensive, but not better. So lets go into this stat by stat.

Chem style: I used a catalyst on him to boost his pace and because I like my midfielders to be good at passing as i often try passes in not that good angles.

Pace: 7/10

With Catalyst he has 83 and it feels like this ingame too. He isn't rapid but more than fast enought to create space in his position and keep up with most attackers

Shooting: 8/10

He has 74 shooting which doesn't sound like much but his relative high shot power and long shots enables him to score some bangers in the top corner from the edge of the penalty area for me. You have to be careful to use his left, cause with his right his shots aren't that much of a danger. His finishing isn't the best, but as he rarely comes in the position for a close range finish it doesn't really matter.

Passing: 7/10

Hard to describe, he won't do incredible passes, but he doesn't really need to. Makes few mistakes and is reliant in short passes. Also for passing his weak foot isn't that much of an issue as with shooting.

Dribbling: 6/10

He wont dribble past the opponents defense, but again, he is a CDM. That being said, he keeps the ball quite close and is able to get out of tight positions and pass the ball under pressure.

Defending: 9/10

This is where this card shines. Even though his defensive stat seem average for CDM (because i didn't boost them), they don't feel average in game at all. He always seems to be in the right position to intercept enemy passes. He just stretches his long legs and you've got the ball. His height also help him incredibly when tackling, as he has very far reach with his tackles and wins nearly all of them. He does relatively often commit fouls though, his agression feels way stronger than 76. Anyways the opponents attack is stopped, just be careful as you seem to get yellow cards for everything this year, and he gets more than any other player in my team (12 yellow, 1 yellow-red in 87 games).

Physical: 8/10

Feels really strong and can bully most other midfielder and attackers of the ball and contain it himself.

For his price you can't really go wrong, great defensive midfielder, will win you many balls back and he scored quite some important goals, when I set my tactics offensive and he would help in the attack. The most similiar player i have used this year IF Delaney, who is way more expensive and aguably Rabiot is better than him.
