Player Review

210k for an 87 Riyad Mahrez, but is it good value?

This is a very well rounded card, without any massively spectacular stats aside from his 92-rated dribbling.

His 86-rated pace is helped by that spectuacular dribbling, meaning that in-game, Mahrez will feel much quicker than his pace suggests.

84-rated passing and 83-rated shooting are a little disappoiting for an 87-rated Premier League winger, but don't forget that these ratings are subject to improvement should Mahrez turn on the style in real life.

His 5* skills are sure to excite many a FIFA fan, whilst we can have no qualms with his 4* weak foot either.

We think 210k provides pretty good value for this card, especially when you consider the high probablity that Mahrez picks up another couple of informs before the year is out!
