FIFA Chemistry Styles are often overlooked by many FUT fans. Using these consumable items correctly can completely change the way you play, turning a good squad into a great one…

Although many FIFA players have a basic idea of what each FUT Chemistry Style does to a player’s overall card stats, a surprisingly large number don’t understand the exact changes these items make to individual in-game stats.

Knowing this information can be incredibly useful, as certain FIFA Chem Styles can actually eradicate, or significantly diminish weaknesses within a particular FUT card’s IG stats. We will give real examples of this and explain exactly how this works below.

How FIFA 19 Chemistry Styles Work in FUT

FUT Chem Styles have the power to completely change the way a FIFA Ultimate Team card feels and performs on the pitch. You can turn a CM (central midfielder) into a defensive beast, or give them the flair and panache of a distinguished playmaker.

With so many FIFA Chemistry Style cards available in FUT, your choices are certainly not limited either. Everyone plays with their own unique style in FIFA games, and FUT Chemistry Style cards only accentuate this. See the exact FUT stat increases of these cards explained below…

How Do Chemistry Styles Work in FIFA 19?

Please note – to get the most out of the following stat boosts, it is entirely dependant on your FUT Team Chemistry being 100, and individual Player Chemistry being 10 (the maximum for both). The lower either of these values are, the lower the attribute boosts provided by each Chemistry Style will be. The maximum individual stat rating a player can have is capped at 99.

As you can see from above, the most a FUT Chemistry Style card can increase an individual IG stat by is +15. Some of you may be under the impression that this is fairly marginal, but we can assure you that an increase of +15 on any individual attribute is very noticeable on the pitch.

If applied intelligently, a boost of even +10 can radically improve a player in a specific area. Let’s take Ivan Perišić of Inter Milan as an example. An extremely popular FUT card in FIFA 19, Perišić is incredibly well-rounded. However, some users have complained about his balance. Let’s take a closer look…

As you can see from the above image, with a Basic FIFA Chemistry Style applied, this particular FUT card does lack (comparatively) in the balance stat. 74 balance wouldn’t usually be a problem for a winger, but some top fullbacks will be shorter and have a higher balance stat than this, which is likely to make this even more prominent. Let’s take a look at what applying an Engine Chemistry Style does to his IG stats…

Engine is the ONLY Chemistry Style that increases a player’s balance stat by +10 (the next highest by any card is +5!). With this in mind, the Engine Chem Style seems very well suited to Ivan Perišić’s 86-rated regular FUT card. This is a great example of how a player’s in game stats can easily be manipulated by the use of FIFA 19 Chemistry Styles.

Let’s take a look at another example of how Chemistry Styles can be used across a whole FUT squad…

The owner of the above team has clearly opted for a more defensive, possession-based style. Part of this can be attributed to their choice of formation, but the selection of FIFA 19 Chem Styles make this even more obvious. The use of Shadows on fullbacks, Anchors on CB’s and Engines on wingers are all very usual, but the choice of the midfield/striker Chemistry Styles stand out.

They have opted for an Anchor on all three central midfield players – this will increase Pace, Defending and Physicality, helping to close down and intercept any mistakes by the opposition. The choice of a Deadeye on Firmino in the CF position will help to involve him in the buildup play, as well as providing him with a significant shooting boost to score the majority of this team’s goals.

We hope this FIFA Chemistry Styles guide has helped increase your knowledge and understanding of how these consumable items work in FUT.

When is Cavani coming to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team? Man Utd striker missing

Published: 1/Dec/2020 20:39

FIFA 21 fans are perplexed by the fact that Manchester United’s newest forward, Edinson Cavani, is still missing from Ultimate Team. Here’s everything we know so far about when El Matador could be added to FUT.

If you scroll over to the available selection of Manchester United players in Ultimate Team, you’ll notice that a certain long-haired Uruguayan fella is nowhere to be found.

Despite having plenty of high-rated and special cards over the past 10 years of FUT, Edinson Cavani was omitted from FIFA’s hallmark mode this year, something which has a lot of players confused.

After his two-goal, one-assist performance for the Red Devils against Southhampton on November 28, many naturally assumed he’d be getting an In-Form in TOTW 10, only to realize he’s not even in Ultimate Team at all, and no one has any idea when he’ll be added back in.

Why isn’t Cavani in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team?

Cavani’s last card in FIFA Ultimate Team was his FUTMAS item in FIFA 20.

While EA SPORTS have not come out and specifically stated why Cavani isn’t in FUT, it’s clearly because he wasn’t signed by United until after the game was released (remember, FIFA 21 was available as early as October 1 with all the early access promos).

That may confuse some of you who will point out the likes of Thomas Partey moving over to Arsenal on October 5 and still getting a FUT card, even a Ones to Watch. However, it’s important to point out that El Matador wasn’t on a team before getting signed by ManU – he’d parted ways with PSG and become a free agent before the game released, and players who are free agents don’t get cards in Ultimate Team.

So, the long and short of it is that the former Napoli star simply wasn’t on any team when the FIFA 21 player database was created and joined the Red Devils too late to get added in. Of course, one can argue that EA can just add him in now, which they can, but with Cavani not being a very popular card over the past few titles, it’s probably just not a priority for the developers.

Cavani in FIFA 21 career mode

What makes this whole situation even more bizarre is the fact that EA SPORTS went out of their way to add Cavani to Manchester United’s squad in career mode. Yup, you read that right – you can enjoy the prolific forward as a Red Devil in FIFA 21, but only in the offline modes.

The Manchester United version of Cavani can be found in career mode but not in FUT.

When will Cavani be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team?

As mentioned above, this can happen technically at any time, but the likeliest scenario is that EA will add him during the Winter Refresh period, which is when all of the winter transfers, rating upgrades, and changes to skill moves and weak foot get applied.

While we don’t know when FIFA 21’s Winter Refresh will take place yet, the past two years’ have started on the 14th and 15th of February, respectively. Traditionally, winter upgrades arrive sometime between the start and end of February.

Cavani might even get a Ones to Watch, especially since the devs, in hindsight, will already know that he features and does well for Man United so there’s potential for him to receive In-Forms and other special cards.

This is a bit of a tough one to predict because Cavani’s FIFA 20 base card was 88-rated and it’s highly unlikely EA will give him that high of a rating in FUT 21. So, our best bet is to look at the player’s stats in career mode.

His rating offline is 84 overall, with High/High work rates, three-star skill moves, and four-star weak foot. Needless to say, the focus of this card’s in-game stats are shooting and physical, which are hallmarks of El Matadors’ play-style. His pace, passing, and dribbling stats, on the other hand, do leave a lot to be desired.

Our guess is that, once he is added in, the former PSG man will feature a slightly higher overall-rating, maybe 85-86, with only a very slight boost to all of the important in-game stats across the board.
