FIFA 18: Statistically the worst striker on the game plays for Man City

Pep probably shouldn't play this guy any time soon

Manchester City don’t have a problem scoring goals.

But things could be very different if they decided to play David Faupala up front.

That’s because the 20-year-old striker is statistically the worst on the game, according to FIFA stats site Futbin.


The Frenchman has averaged just 0.08 goals in 9,799 games and a pitiful 0.08 assists.

So, what makes him so bad? Let’s take a closer look at his stats.

For starters, the 62-rated bronze card doesn’t pack much fire power in the pace department.

His 70 score isn’t that bad, but he’s let down by his 52 positioning – something essential if speed isn’t the main weapon.



Elsewhere, his finishing is a worrying 66 and long shots are rated at just 57.

Poor Faupala isn’t too hot with the ball at his feet, either – his 71 agility let down by 52 composure, 59 dribbling and 55 ball control.

Still, you can’t expect much for 2,000 FUT coins.

City fans can breathe a sigh of relief, though… Faupala was released by the club last month. It seems as though EA is yet to update the roster in-game.

It’s not all bad news, though – as FIFA fans claim to have found this year’s secret weapon.

Pep Guardiola is also believed to be weighing-up a move for the centre-half

Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski is getting rave reviews from FIFA fans on Reddit –  who are citing his value for money and well-balanced stats.

The gold-rated midfielder currently goes for 700 coins – making him an absolute steal.

For that, you get 83 pace, 82 dribbling and 79 passing. Oh, and he’s got a five-star week foot and four-star skills too.

Unsurprisingly, fans are very impressed.

One wrote: “True gem. If he was a pl player he would cost 200k or more. Hope he does well enough for a tots. That would be beautiful.”

The Napoli player can be picked up for less than 1,000 coins in FUT

Another said: “That card is insane. I have linked into a 4-3-2-1 with Martial, Gameiro, Bakayoko and Matuidi mid. Switch to 4-1-2-1–2 and my God he’s a monster.

“Good long shots, good finesse shot. Dribbles like Hazard finishes like God damn Dybala.”

Sounds like a must-have for Ultimate Team.
