Ignore them comments here, because Rice is everything ypu want!
If you are searching for an English CDM in the Prem then he is the right choice for your squad.
He is a wall against the wall, similar to FUT 20/21 Kanté and he is the perfect classical defensive midfielder. This guy got only one job: Playing against the ball! His interceptions are awesome and he is fast and strong enough to compete against top notch players.
At the time I use him together with Oxford in a 4-2-3-1 and together they keep them attackers away from my defense line.
So this is simple. If you want a CDM à la Casemiro, Javi Martínez, Kante, De Rossi, Gattuso or Prime Mascherano, then Rice is even better. And just to say, these legends are illustrated in their Real Life performances!
Does his Job!
Dribbling/ Ball Control
ONLY does his Job
