In this series, I will use FIFA 18 to simulate as well as play the next Chelsea FC match -- with the difficulty on the highest level, because much like Chelsea FC, I occasionally like to make things difficult on myself for no reason whatsoever.
The Carabao Cup is back after a satisfying and exciting win in the Premier League against Watford, so let’s see what FIFA 18 thinks will happen when Everton come to Stamford Bridge.
My shot at glory (with video commentary):
Time for the youth. I threw out all the stops with some drastic changes to the lineup. I couldn’t figure out a way to edit Everton’s lineup, so they got a full strength starting lineup. I went with the following: Caballero | Clarke-Salter, Rüdiger, Sterling | Kenedy, Christensen, Scott, Zappacosta | Musonda, Batshuayi, Willian
This is the first time I actually won in this series. I’ll take it as a good omen that my face was plastered on the screen and take the victory. Nevermind the fact I almost blew the game once again; victory is all that matters.
I altered the AI lineup to the exact same lineup as above. The trend continued with the computer simulation being somewhat similar to my gameplay. Both are positive, and the simulation is probably more accurate due to Everton’s goal scoring record.
Let us know what you think of this feature and FIFA 18 in general in the comments!
