Emmanuel Petit - 92 - Icon
4.5
A Machine with a Ponytail
By JohnnCurry, 29-04-2020

Moments Petit for 19 swap tokens. Used this guy in drafts, 11-14 games in total but gave me a good enough reason to review this guy as one is not yet up. He played CM/CDM in the formations that FUT draft drafted for me and he played the best in a 4231/442. Petit played amongst and against the elite of players in the whole of FUT, your Messi’s, Mbappe’s, Van Dijks, Neymar’s etc., the list goes on. I can honestly tell you that Petit has been one of my favorite players throughout the drafts, he is such a presence on the field with his slick ponytail, he goes unnoticed with his footballing ability and his physicality. I played him mostly on ‘Stay Back while Attacking’ as I feel the a.i. will still push him up the field on the attack, which did happen.. but in some aspects, this contributes to the abilities Petit obtains. Defensively, there’s no question that he is one of the best defensive midfielders on FUT but following up with his base stats suggesting he can shoot, is quite remarkable and unique I say. I am grinding towards Petit as this guy will improve any midfield.

  • PACE: His pace was incredible when he drafted him with a Shadow, he was up and down the field like no tomorrow.

  • SHOOTING: His long shots are something else, the power he gets behind the ball is diabolical!

  • PASSING: Short passing at 91 and long passing at 87 makes him a great outlet in front of your defensive line.

  • DRIBBLING: 6foot 1 with 81 agility impresses me, he turns well and isn’t clunky. Reactions and Ball control both at 89 makes him very smooth on the ball.

  • DEFENDING: The guy is an intercepting machine with a ponytail! How could you not want an midfielder who 9 times out of 10 intercepts every opposing through ball and pass. A defensive menace!

  • PHYSICALITY: Stamina, the guy has 95 stamina. Runs all game long without needing to breathe out of his backside. Aggression at 93 helps with the fact why he is an intercepting machine!

The Pro’s to this card are as followed:


  • ICON/Links: Can play in any team.

  • Accessibility: He is easily accessible. Coins is not needed to acquire Petit.

  • Shooting: Long shots for days with him, out of this world. Honestly..

  • Interceptions: The guys interceptions are honestly amazing. He will make you smile when he retrieves the ball back with his long legs!

  • Tackling: 1v1 shoulder to shoulder, he wins them with ease. Lost 1 battle against Van Dijk, that’s it.

  • Passing: Very good passer on the ball, just a bog-standard passer to be honest. Passing isn’t exactly great this FIFA, even if you has 99 stats in the passing field, you will still muck up..

The Con’s to this card are as followed:


  • Weak Foot: 3* weak foot isn’t the most ideal. Hence being a Con.

  • Skill Moves: This is purely based on you skillers out there.

  • Pace: Pace isn’t an issue if boosted with a pace boost. If left alone, it can be an issue as he has H/H work rates.

  • Finishing: This isn’t based on his long distance shooting ability, this is purely based on finishing in tight areas, 1v1 and finesse.

Prime Moments Petit
By Davexd, 30-04-2020

I got him for 19 Tokens in Icon Swaps and going to share my honest opinion with you:

I played him as CDM next to Prime Essien in 4231 the last Weekend League.


Pace: He does not feel as fast as f. ex. Kante or Essien, but with a shadow this guy is able to chase down most of the strikers.

Shooting: He is able to score some pretty sick goals (98 Shot Power, 99 Long Shots) and also at lower distances this guy is pretty reliable for a CDM.

Passing: His Short Passes are not special, but his Forward Passes are really good and precise most of the time.

Dribbling: Due to 76 Balance and 1,85 m Height, he does not feel as smooth as Essien f. ex., but his dribbling is still ok.

Defending + Strength: With a shadow, 89 Strength + his height he wins most of the duels.

Stamina: 95 Stamina wont let him down after 90 Minutes, even tho he is running all the time because of his Workrates and Aggression.


Conclusion: If you are thinking about getting him in Icon Swaps, do it.

If you are thinking about buying him for 1.3 Million (PS4) you can do it, but I think you can also get other sick CDMs even for less money. (especially TOTS)


Links (Icon + French)

Pace (with shadow)

Solid Short Passing + Stunning Forward Passes

Solid Defending in Combination with Strength and Height
