I realise I may not have made it clear at first – this article refers to players’ stats after the winter update.
So, here’s the article for left midfielders, be they wingers or simply left mids (LMs). Plenty to choose from, so here are my recommendations:
- Michael Jacobs
- Dimitris Popovic
- Karim Laribi
Michael Jacobs is an excellent winger. His dribbling is already really good for someone with 61 OVR (it’s rated 73), and you can imagine how good it’ll be once he reaches his potential. He’s quick, has good stamina, is good at free kicks, and is even good at shooting from distance, so he would also be able to fill in at CAM if needed. His weak foot is very strong and he has decent skill moves too. The best part? He’s only £450,000.
Even cheaper is Dimitris Popovic at £350,000. He is already very speedy and has very good balance too, and in addition to strong winger attributes like dribbling, he’s also quite good at shooting, so he’ll not only be creating chances for you, but converting them too. £350,000 and £2,000 wages is simply too good to miss – he costs less than half of what Kadeem Harris does, yet is 4 points better, 2 years younger and his potential is 1 point higher. Take advantage of FIFA’s odd price calculations and buy him while xanax online he’s still cheap!
Karim Laribi, like Aaron Doran in the right midfielders article, is equally at home playing as a wide midfielder or as a winger. He is very quick and has fantastic balance, so can easily skip past defenders. His dribbling and long shots are good, but so is his crossing. Best of all, he’s so flexible that even his tackling is good, so he can drop back to left back if you need him there. Add in his 4 star weak foot and I’m finding it hard to think of a position he can’t cover! A great all-round player.
These figures refer to the winter update stats. As always, please bear in mind that these figures may not be exactly the same on your game. These stats are taken from my own personal experiences, but are likely to be very similar to those on your own game. The best thing to do is to make sure you keep checking these players, as their prices may change radically after a while.
Players are ordered by potential, then cost, so it should be pretty simple to find someone who meets both your budget and ability/potential requirements.
Finally, if you’ve had any experiences of good players’ prices changing wildly (especially if their price drops), please post it in the comments!
