Mackay-Steven In-Game Stats & Player Analysis

Being only an 84 rated card, don’t expect Mackay-Steven to be the strongest item in FUT, however he does have some good meta stats in some areas.


Having 98 Acceleration and 92 Sprint Speed will certainly make this card feel very quick in game, which will be useful in attacking situations.

His 99 Agility and 96 Balance, coupled with is 5* Skill Moves are a must for players that like to incorporate skills into their game, however he may be let down slightly with only 83 Ball Control and 70 Reactions.

His shooting is okay, but could be better, with 85 Finishing, 89 Shot Power and 85 Long Shots, but again will be let down with only 3* Weak Foot and 76 Composure.

Being Scottish in the MLS certainly doesn’t help when linking Mackay-Steven into a squad, with only 1 usable strong link worth noting outside of Icon Dalglish.


81 Mitrita provides the only strong link to Mackay-Steven in the MLS, however other weak links via fellow Scots 86 Tierney and 94 Robertson are available. Links to other attackers in the MLS are usable as well, with 88 Ibrahimovic and 85 Vela being current tradable options.
