Why are some players with ultra low defensive stats so good playing CM in 41212(2)

Went back to 41212(2) after playing 4231 and 451 all year, basically just to outscore my opponents quickly.

Just like Henry and sterling so good as cm in fifa 18. Moment fekir for me is doing damage from cm lol. This guy intercepts like hes gullit. Push people off the ball like nothing happened.

The assumption now must be pace is better than defensive stats as a cm in that formation. All player intercepts like prime maldini in fifa anyways.

    Probably because 90% of stats count for nothing, this game is dreadful.

    Plus y do u need defence stats on cm in a formation that u already have a cdm and 4 defenders surely that is plenty of defensive stats

    Because anyone can tackle.

    Socrates is about 8 ft 7, so of course he'll be useful.

    I have the TOTS and he runs around like a chicken with his head cut off, except he is everywhere he needs to be. Been looking for the best CDM to pair with Gullit and keep going back to him.

    Hmm so you should need a box to box like Gullit as cnetc. but the game is so broken that when Ai controls players,stats don't matter.
    So Firmino,Grizzy and players H/H are crazy as CMs.
