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

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 Citizens:

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

For this matchup, I’m going to pull the fun card. If a result wasn’t possible, which for me it wasn’t, at least we had some fun. Cesc turns Kevin De Bruyne in circles, Morata misses an easy shot, and I attempt to belittle Manchester City with lackluster passes and missing shots.

In all seriousness, this was an enjoyable matchup. The game didn’t go my way, but this was a perfect game that encapsulates what makes FIFA fun. Enjoy!

As always, featuring the same lineups as above.
