Mertens Rulebreaker Review
By VagleKongen, 24-11-2020

Alright so after playing Mertens a lot in Champs and Div 3 rivals I can comfortably say he is one of the best players I’ve used in all of FIFA 21. He is so agile on the ball, dribbles like he’s Messi in his prime and shoots like Ronaldo Nazario.

Expensive but worth it

I've used this card across 4 consecutive gold 1/2 weekend leagues and he's been amazing each time.

He feels so smooth on the ball and with his dribbling and 4* SM he can create an opportunity even in the tightest of spaces if you use him well.

I use him as a lone striker in a 4-3-3 alongside mane and lozano with an engine chem style and he's constantly making the right run in behind to play him through from the midfield or so i can play it him from the wingers for a tap in.

167 goals and 67 assists in 144 games says it all about his finishing, and i find however you shoot (across the goal, chips, finesse etc) he puts 9/10 chances away that you'd expect him to score and his 4* WF might as well be a 5. Although his composure isnt the highest and this is semi important this year, i havent really notice it having an affect.

a very good striker for me and i would consider using him for your serie a attacker perhaps until you can afford cr7.

Finishing-- scores most chances you'd expect him to finish

Dribbling and close control-- great agility in tight situatons

Pace-- rapid getting onto long balls or balls in behind, although can be caught up by a ferland mendy or varane for example.

Set pieces-- good from penalties, free kicks and corners.

Links- good links to hazard, dybala, lozano etc

Strength-- can be pushed off the ball by most strong cbs but if you aren't reliant on long balls and can fake shot and utilise his SM it won't be as much of an issue

Height-- Quite small so rarely wins headers

Costly-- 450000+ however his price is likely to hold or even increase with time and he is cheaper than cr7

Dries Mertens
By BigAdversityTV, 26-11-2020

This guy is simply sensational. I tried building a meta team and was finishing elite 3 and just felt like i wasn't getting past easy players. I decided to pair him up with rulebreaker nainggolan with mertens at striker and nainggolan in the midfield. This man does not miss , paired up with his agility and 4 star 4 star he saved my ass this weekend and helped me secure 27-3. I've played 56 games with him in div 1 and weekend league and he has 58 goals and 31 assists. If you're looking to step away from the meta this guy is brilliant on the ball and makes good runs on the counter. On top of that he is deadly in the box with the finesse shot and if he gets caught on his wrong foot he has the outside foot shot. His composure is a cap, he doesn't miss. The only downside is when hes getting bullied by van dijk or the tall players, in that case he needs to move the ball more but his passing for a striker is more than capable.

-4* 4*
