Been using Kante almost from the start and haven’t been able to replace him yet. Is rodri an upgrade as a pure cdm?

    I mean, let’s be honest, kante just fits the game as a defensive mid. I’m just finding now though that he can cost me wins in fut champs lately with his passing. Really looking for someone who can sit in defence and do a job as well as pass. I have Rooney and tots mount next to him

    Rodri complete different type of CDM to Kante. Big strong and physical, but Kante has that little annoying nuisance value about him, he’s all over the place, Rodri won’t have that same mobility.

    I used Soucek for 3-4 games this WL and quickly put NIF kante back in the team. Just didn’t work for even though his stats looked great. Seemed passive and to disappear or never actually appear in games. But very limited sample size for me.

    Soucek is not very good tbh, nothing on Kante. Havent used Rodri but I would expect Kante to be the better option..

    Is he better than Essien? Got some dupe untradeables to dump.

    Currently using Roberto Carlos....same nuisance as kante however he has strength. Good passing and can finesse a top bins.

    My most frustrating FIFA 20 memory is one guy who won on the 90' min with an outside finesse shot from Makelele... with his week foot.

    Yes tots soucek is awful...I recently used his TOTW card which was very good on set pieces, I pull his tots card but really terrible....kante is the ultimate CDM in this game, I even prefer him over icons...just love how annoying he is, he’s everywhere on the pitch😁😁

    I actually got both from the last random ICON SBC (both prime). Very different players tbh, makelele feels faster, more agile and Essien is like a brick wall, very good at intercepting and can get into the box and finish off. Both are decent options, I'd have Makelele as a stay back CDM but Essien as a powerful CM

    I have both Essien and Makelele pim. If you have good b2b options, do Makelele as he is a ball magnet. If you are happy with your stay back options, Essien is stupidly good at getting about on the pitch. If the team had both and I had to do one though, Essien is the guy.

    Which one would be a better partner to FB Sanches, Essien, Mak, or someone else in a 433(4)

    Nowhere near as good as a CDM. Maybe a better quality player overall. But

    FB Sanches, Mak and Essien is a perfect midfield 3 all with the right attributes and stats. End-game material.

    I preferred NIF Kante to Rodri at CDM. Rodri is my new CB and he's great there.

    Soucek has high/high workrates so moves up the pitch away from where you want him which is annoying. If he had better workrates he would be a beast of a CDM. I'm playing Soucek at CM now where the high/high is good and I like him a lot there but prefered Kante at CDM.

    We aren't talking about a massive price here tho. Kante is 36k on ps market. Do tots rodri as he's free, if he's unusable stick to kante and use rodri in an sbc

    Is makelele a big upgrade on Kante.

    I could get CR7 back into the squad If I have mak so that's a positive also

    I’ve had kante unreadable from the start and don’t really want to do the rodri objectives unless it would be worth it. My experience with some of these objective based cards has been full of sweats and toxicity and after this last weekend league, m not sure I can take any more for a week or two.
