Imagine being in Pep Guardiola’s position. 24 matches into the 2017/18 Premier League season and Manchester City are 12 points clear at the top of the table. The title is more or less in the bag and a League Cup final spot beckons if they can avoid a huge shock defeat to Bristol City. Well, you too can take over the reins at the Etihad Stadium on FIFA 18 as you look to win an unprecedented quadruple in English football.
If you are looking to take control of one of the most complete squads in the game, this City side is perfect for you. Not only are you given £132 million to spend in the summer transfer window but you inherit an almost perfect roster for FIFA. Whether you are a regular on this game or not, one thing is for sure: you will need plenty of pace to defeat your rivals and City are blessed with raw speed and acceleration throughout.
In the full-back areas, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy – currently injured in real life at present – are two competent options. Danilo is another defender who can slot in on either side; and all three are very, very quick. Any FIFA 18 aficionado will reveal to you that most online players tend to opt for speedy, skilful players in wider areas and competent fullbacks are an absolute necessity.
At the heart of the defence, Vincent Kompany is a solid option – the City captain has it all. Able to compete physically, capable of making a killer pass into midfield and with the ability to win headers, he is a stalwart and is a must-start on a weekly basis. Next to him, you can use either Nicolas Otamendi or John Stones. In real life, Otamendi has been tremendous this season and he can shine on FIFA 18, too.
And then you have the strikers, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus. Raheem Sterling, a winger by trade on FIFA 18, has been banging in the goals this season but you may prefer to deploy him in a wider role – Aguero and Jesus should be used as the main frontmen. Whether you go with two strikers or not, there are plenty of ways to incorporate both into the starting line-up, this City side’s versatility is one of its greatest strengths.
Manchester City have the most complete squad in England, both on FIFA 18 and in real life – and that is why they have been dominant so far this campaign. Pep Guardiola has built an incredible side and you can now take over and develop the squad further. On FIFA 18, you can take full advantage of City’s potential and win silverware across the board. Every title and trophy is up for grabs with this City team.
