Hi guys, welcome to my review of Jesse Lingard.
I am a div 2 player (although on the lower end - 1710 skill points right now). I play 4-1-2-1-2 (2) and I had a rollercoster Weekend League this weekend. From 7-1 to 9-9, then 14-10. I have Auba and Werner up top and I wasn't really satisfied with Timo during the weekend, so I decided to try JLingz on the ST position instead of him. Here are my thoughts after 5 games with him.
Games: 5 Goals: 6 Assists: 1
Pace Rating: 6/10
I put Hunter on him, but he still wasn't so rapid. He can't really outrun the usual CB's like Varane or Joe Gomez, but he can accelerate quite well, so if you time your pass just right, he will catch up.
Dribbling Rating: 7.5/10
He has a decent dribbling. I couldn't compare him to the likes of Neymar or Sterling, but he can dribble through the opposition defence just fine. Sometimes he suprises you, when he is able to run through defence and while doing that, he has enough time to let opposition's Neymar know, that it's sunny, innit.
Shooting Rating: 8/10
With Hunter, he shoots very well. I was getting constant flashback on his goal against Panama. Top bins all day, JLingz on the scoresheet.
I was suprised by his heading ability, he scored one insane header for me. Also has a rocket volley, quality stuff.
Passing Rating: 5/10
His passing was a bit of a downside for me, often couldn't find the right target. However, given how I wouldn't be able to pass on 5 metres with prime Pirlo given the pass locking to every player but the one I want this FIFA, this category is, at least for me, not relevant.
Physical Rating: 3/10
When Jesse runs next to strong defenders, he gets annihilated. Unfortunatelly, he doesn't manage challenges as well as his clothing line.
Defending Rating: 1/10
One game I was leading by 3 goals at 70' so I tried putting Jesse at CB, so I could give you the complete review. Don't do that.
Tilting Your Opponent: 10/10
No one me messaged me after the games, but I played one against a guy that had 10m team starring Eusebio, Neymar, Mbappé, Blanc, Matthäus... and I beat him 2:1, Jesse scoring a brace. I have to believe that seeing JLingz pretending to play a flute at the corner flag wasn't very pleasing for him.
Worth The Money: 10/10
You can get your own Jesse Lingard for 1.1k right now, and after finishing this review, I believe that is money well spent. JLingz got me gold 2, and I hope he will help you... keep reading on reddit ➡
Well I just watched Tottenham lose in the Europa League and Dele was horrible. Is he just a glorified Lingard?
