SLIPPERY. That's DCL in a nutshell. Pace is not Mbappe but his strength combined with his beanpole body type allow him to slide around CBs with ease and latch onto thru balls. Goes great in a 2 striker formation, with another ST to draw the other CB away and allow him more one on ones. I know a lot of yous looked at the SBC and thought, "am I really gonna sink my fodder and 40k into a 84 rated untradeable in early October," but the way Ancelotti has Everton playing this card will have some amazing links down the road, and if you can swing it I strongly recommend adding him to your arsenal. Highly recommend finisher to get the most out of this card.
He's closer to Rush or Drogba than anyone else really. #1 Strength is his ability in the air. While that's hard to do on breaks for the most part, if your opponent is ever sleeping on corners he has a Ronaldo-like leaping ability where he will overpower anyone not named Van Dijk. #2 is his dribbling + shooting. With Finisher applied he makes tremendous little cuts in the box and absolutely rips heaters. #3 is Pace and Stamina. Seems faster due to his ability to move around so easily, and his 86 stamina combined with the fact that he's an absolute thoroughbred means opposing CBs are in for a long game.
Not an outside the box threat. Not Doumbia on the break. Not Ben Yedder dancing thru the entire defense and running around shushing you. I personally love his simplicity, if you have a CAM (James) or two wingers that can control the ball and serve as your catalysts then DCL will make a perfect complement. I imagine we will see plenty of Richarlison-DCL-James trios in the next month or two.
