Alexis Sanchez is a really worthy investment player which we have talked about before. Here is his review.


Alexis Sanchez


Starting with the stat many players feel is absolutely vital for a winger: Pace. He has 90 pace on his card and he definitely lives up to it, what more do I have to say? It's unreal how quickly he bursts past defenders, even some of the faster ones, completely leaving them behind. His acceleration is especially special, and it makes dribbling past players that much easier. One of the fastest players I've ever used.


Next up, his dribbling and physical. I put these two together because dribbling is one of his strongest points while physical is one of his weakest (just like him, lol). His dribbling is absolutely unreal. When I play him at LM, he normally picks up the ball on the left side of the middle of the pitch. When given the ball there he can be extremely deadly. If you know how to dribble, I promise you you can dribble past any center back pairing in the game. It doesn't even matter. I've tried Ribery and and he feels a bit better at dribbling than him, which I would probably have to attribute to his increased agility. It's unreal how quickly he changes direction, even when sprinting at full speed. However, there is a downside, and I mentioned it's his physical. If a defender collides with him (legally), say goodbye to the ball. He gets pushed off way too easily, however he doesn't fall much unless he gets clattered into, thanks to his balance. There is a way to counter this though, and it's simple really. Don't go shoulder to shoulder with another defender. If you notice that a defender is about to push or pull at you, simply press L2 and use that to turn away, then dribble past him. He's definitely the best dribbler I've used so far.


Now for his shooting and passing. Holy shit can this boy finish. He finishes from the weirdest angles, he finishes one vs ones, he finishes from outside the box, he finishes finesse shots, he finishes them all. However, that's not to say that you should take a shot with him whenever he gets the ball. Don't do that with anyone. You need to use his sexy dribbling in order to make space for yourself and then let it rip. He finishes extremely well, with both feet, I really don't have anything to say. Not only does he score, but he also creates. He didn't get many assists for me, but for many of the goals I did score, he was involved. Whether it was him that carried the ball from my half to the opponent's box, him that had his shot parried away into a teammate's path, him that would put in a fantastic cross that my player would then put down for another player to smash in. He creates so many chances, don't let his low amount of assists make you think that he doesn't assist, because that's completely untrue.


Other notes: Will very rarely beat players for headers, however when given a free one he makes it count regularly. His defending isn't great at all but what do you expect. You can still use his pace to run back and bother someone though. His high finishing makes his 3* WF feel like 4* inside the box, and obviously he has 4* skills. Oddly enough, felt that he was more suited to a LM role, as he saw more of the ball that way and could work his magic more often.


Many of you invested in SIF Sanchez. I'm glad that you're making FIFA coins.
