Hazard POTM Investment: Kompany
Player: Vincent Kompany
Reasoning: With yesterday’s performance, Eden Hazard has solidified himself as the Premier League September POTM (see full list of candidates here). The SBCs for this will be released on October 12th.
Being such a quality player, EA will have to make his card expensive. One of the ways they can do this is by requiring high rated players, particularly from the Premier League. Kompany is the cheapest 85 rated player in the BPL by a mile; the next closest player is Alderweirweld, and he is over 10k more expensive.
In addition to his rating and league, Kompany’s nationality also makes him a good look. He is Belgian just like Hazard, which could potentially also be a requirement.
Lastly, there is a very good chance that we could be seeing Icon SBCs in the 12 days between now and the September POTM release. In FIFA 18, the first of these were released on Thursday, October 12th. This would make all high rated players rise, including Kompany.
Target BUY: Less than 8,000 coins.
Target SELL: Sell in the hype a couple hours before the September POTM release on October 12th or gamble and hold in hopes that he is required and goes up. If he isn’t, his price will drop.
