Let’s play FIFA 18: Chelsea vs. Newcastle United

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

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 Magpies:

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

Neither myself nor the simulation wants anything to do with the FA Cup. So instead I talk about Eden Dzeko and the “magic” of the FA Cup for the majority of the video. In doing so I end up distracting myself from doing anything productive, like playing competently.

Computer Simulation:

The simulated lineup is the same as above.
