FIFA 11 – The good, the bad and the overrated (Chelsea)

By on January 20, 2011 - 449 views

At Clean Sheets HQ, we love video games almost as much as we love you, our readers. In fact, we’ve taken our obsession with a certain EA Sports title to the next level by rating ‘The good, the bad and the overrated’ from every big club.

Think an individual deserves recognition for his virtual ball skills, or maybe you’d like to see a star taken down a peg or two? Then why not get in touch and let us know!

This time we cast our square eyes over Chelsea.

The good… Nicholas Anelka

Acceleration 85
Dribbling 84
Finishing 90
Ball Control 86
Overall rating = 85

If you had to put all your savings on a striker to finish a one on one, this man is sure to be top of your list. The trick is to lace it with the Frenchman rather than side foot, do that and he’s calmness personified. Le Sulk will get you plenty of goals but is wasted if not played in a 4-2-2 with Mikel holding. The Drogba and Anelka partnership is a match for any defensive line-up and the beauty of this formation is that it allows you to contain and hit hard on the break.

The bad… Alex

Sprint Speed 69
Acceleration 65
Strength 91
Marking 85
Overall rating = 83

He may have bucket loads of strength, but what good is it if you can’t keep up with players? The key to Chelsea’s downfall is pace through the middle so let Alex warm the bench and drop down Michael Essein to centre-half. With a rating of 86, he’s extremely efficient anywhere on the pitch.

The overrated… Jose Bosingwa
Acceleration 87
Sprint Speed 83
Stamina 89
Dribbling 82
Overall rating = 81

Having not kicked a ball for over a year until a few weeks ago, Jose’s rating of 81 is more than generous. However, he offers so much more down that right flank compared to team-mate Bransilav Ivanovic. Maybe now he’s on the comeback trail he can justify his £16.3m transfer fee.
