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

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.

My shot at glory (with commentary):

For the starting lineup I have the following to take on the Hammers:

Courtois | Cahill, Rudiger, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Kante, Drinkwater, Moses | Pedro, Willian, Batshuayi

This was a fun one. I didn’t think I’d score given my lackluster start and lamentations about drawing Barcelona in the group stage, but I pulled one back. Then there was the ending that blew even my mind, how did I miss that one? Pure skill, that’s how.

Computer Simulation:

Courtois | Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta | Alonso, Fabregas, Kante, Drinkwater, Moses | Hazard, Morata

Different lineups and different results, kind of an interesting look at how the two different formations and player groupings would perform.
