Jordi Alba suffered from the uprise of Ferland Mendy in LaLiga. Mendy is not only impressing with his stats and ingame presents but also with his perfekt link to Varane which is the best option for a LaLiga sqaud. Nonetheless Alba is still among the best Fullbacks in the game. He is performing better in game rather than showing in his stats. He is still fast (88 pace) and can keep up with the fastest Wingers in the game. His physicality and defenfensive skills are top notch. I wittnessed that players who are faster (Salah, Adama) and players who are Stronger (Bale, Adama) had a hard time passing Alba. Overall Alba is more than able to compete with Mendy and is way cheeper. The only downtake alba has are his headers which are not that important for a Fullback.
Fast / Strong Defense / Movement / Great Stamina
