Let’s play FIFA 18: West Brom vs. Chelsea

New, comment

Simulating and playing Chelsea’s next Premier League match on FIFA 18. Can the virtual Blues beat the virtual Baggies?

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 Premier League is back after a win over Manchester United and a lengthy international break, so let’s see what FIFA 18 thinks will happen when Chelsea take on West Brom.

My shot at glory (with commentary):

The international break brought mostly confusion when it came to Chelsea’s injury situation. I frankly have no clue who Antonio Conte will choose. I gave it my best guess and grabbed a win against West Brom.

In the meantime, I talk a bit about rooting for Antonio Conte vs. Jose Mourinho, David Luiz’s form and situation, Chelsea’s prospects in the Champions League, and more.

For the starting lineup I have the following:

Courtois | Cahill, Luiz, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Kante, Bakayoko, Zappacosta | Hazard, Morata, Pedro

Computer Simulation:

The simulated lineup is the same as above, but Chelsea made things tough on themselves this time. Let’s hope Saturday goes a bit differently than a scoreless draw.

Let us know what you think of this feature and FIFA 18 in general in the comments!
