After last week’s success with C.D. Nacional striker Jhonder Cadiz, it is time to search for another Random Player of the Week.
Without further ado, this week’s random player (provided by Futhead) is Yeovil Town’s Otis Khan.
The former Manchester United product has enjoyed a bountiful year with the league two side. In 18 matches with the Glovers, Khan has scored five goals – a stat line that has not gone unnoticed.
After yet another impressive performance in England’s fourth tier, the 21-year-old earned a spot in EA Sports Team of the Week 12. This update increased Khan’s rating from 52 to 64, making him bearable for Fifa Ultimate Team.
Lo and behold, out of all the players in Futhead’s database, Khan’s inform was the output, making him this week’s Player of the Week.
The first detail to stand out when scanning over Khan’s stats are the three-in-a-row 70 overalls on his pace, shooting, and passing. Other than his strange stat line, nothing made him seem exciting.
After taking an analysis of the Yeovil Town winger, it was time to build him a squad. Neglecting to be demolished by using a League Two team, I elected to throw Kahn into a cheap English Premier League side.
The lineup is as follows: Andre Gray (ST), Andros Townsend (RW), Gareth Barry (CDM), Bastian Schweinsteiger (CM), Yohan Cabaye (CDM), Ryan Bertrand (LB), Ogbonna (LCB), Bruno Martins Indi (RCB), Alvaro Arbeloa (RB), Michel Vorm (GK)
After acquiring the lineup, it was time to play.
The opponent looked to be decent, creating a lineup full of pacey Premier League wingers and 5-star skillers.
Once the match began, there was trouble from the start. If someone had to sum up the worst part of FUT in one word, it would be “LAG” – and my game had a lot of it.
Muscling through the stop and go nature of the game, I was able to give Khan a few chances on the wing. Overall, the 21-year-old winger was decent.
Although he is not the quickest, Khan’s ability to get down the wing and make the correct run were refreshing. He did nothing exciting but he played his role. Electing to not cross, I would have the winger cut inside. This idea proved fruitful.
I soon learned that the Yeovil Town winger had a knack for through balls, sending striker Andre Gray up the pitch.
The match remained stale until the 70th minute. Setting up Gray with a one-on-one with the opponent’s keeper, the Burnley FC striker blew his chance. However, Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend was there to clean up the miss, putting my side up 1-0.
After the goal, there wasn’t much to offer. Khan had a few more chances on the wing; however, nothing flourished from it. The match concluded with a narrow score of 1-0.
Khan’s stats were as follows:
Match Rating: 7.2
Shots on Target:
Overall, Khan was not a terrible addition to the squad. He felt calm and relaxed on the ball, allowing me to take my time and create the right pass.
At the end of the day, should you spend 6,000 coins on the bronze striker?
Only if you’re attempting to create a full Bronze team. If not, I wouldn’t recommend this purchase.
Overall Rating: 4/10
