Mertens is good at this stage!
By Cashinga, 15-10-2020

Dries Mertens, what a player he is. I use him as a CAM in a 4-2-3-1 and he has been making runs and scoring them goals. But, if you really want a playmaker and longshotter like Kevin de Bruyne, Mertens isn’t the right player. You wanna use mertens to make them runs behind the striker to finesse it bottom corner or top bins. He does drop back a lot to pick up the ball and play it around which makes it really nice to give the ball to him. With mertens you will also be able to turn real quick to get away from defenders/cdm’s. And just slide it into the striker or the winger to continue the attack. 

  • Acceleration
  • Shooting, especially with his right. Sometimes he tends to miss with his left but not a lot.
  • Dropping back from the CAM position to get the ball.
  • Playmaking is decent enough.
  • Workrates, High/Low
  • In like 30 games I haven't really had the chance to try his longshots so I dont know tbh.
  • A bit small against defenders, but if you use the fast fake-shot he tends to just swerve through defenders and get in front of goal.
  • Headers, just because he is small.
  • His stamina, after 75min he goes into the orange bar. This is just because he is in the CAM position. Im sure he will be fine at striker.

What is this card...

What a card oml. He can hit any shot and play any nice pass to your players. His dribbling is INSANELY good - basically 99 pace with a basic, 99 dribbling with a basic and he has the short and lean- body type (check last fifa), so obviously he is going to be insane on the ball. It feels weird for a 5'7" player to be as good at shooting and as powerful as he is. He isn't the easiest for links but tbh even if he has 8 chemist...

The beast (Dries Mertens)

Before this reveiw I want to let you guys know that this is my first ever futbin reveiw and my english is not the best. Now lets start. He is sooo good. Have played him in 4231 as striker whit insigne behind him. And o my what a card. Finishing, long shoots (especielly finneses), r1 dribling and pace. This card has everything that a starter team needs. The only smal con whit this card is when facing super pacy defenders due...

Incredible Finisher. Great on the wing

Mertens is definitely my favorite player I've used so far in the game. I use him on the left wing in a 4-2-4 and his ability to get past anybody with his pace and dribbling is incredible.His finishing is unreal especially his finesse shot from cutting into the box off the left.This is probably an overstatement but the closest card I can compare him to is TOTY Messi but, I've only used th...
