Top 50 Breakthrough Start To Use In FMM 17 & 18, Presented By KennyMiller27 and mcandrew003

Hello Vibe! Me and @KennyMiller27 have been hard at work to bring you the top 50 Breakthrough Stars of the year! After PM'img me to see if I needed help, we got straight into business, scouting and analysing player stats before coming to a conclusion on the contents of our list! So, in no particular order, here is the list!

50. Steve Mounié

Spoiler

IMG_6818.thumb.PNG.84b82c548733a26c76e69da77baba236.PNG

Mounie has had a fantastic year so far for Montpellier, scoring 13 in 31 for the French side and currently occupying a spot in the Top 10 scorers in the league. A fantastic striker for any EPL side.

49. Nelson Semedo

Spoiler

IMG_6819.thumb.PNG.5a78aebdadd5d1ebaf9329ac320f8d90.PNG

The Portuguese RB has had an exceptional breakthrough season, managing 4 assists so far this year and hitting an average Rating of 7.32 in his many apperences for the Àguias this season. Aswell as this, Semedo has managed to add a League Title to his CV. Often a favourite for the AI, can he make it in your team?

48. Sandro Ramirez or 'Sandro'

Spoiler

IMG_6820.thumb.PNG.878165d2c44ee3f525f72224f6ee94e5.PNG

The young Spaniard has managed an impressive 14 goals in his 28 games for Malaga this year, a good record for someone of his age. With stats as good as these, is he the player to make you want to try that challenge, or transform your team in that career?

47. Fernando Pacheco

Spoiler

IMG_6821.thumb.PNG.c6f4ab876796bdd2bc9feb8652d2c218.PNG

Hopefully a new name to some of you, Pacheco has been outstanding for Alaves this year, conceding just 1.18 per game, contributing massively to their impressive season, where they currently lie in 9th place in La Liga. A decent EPL level keeper, can he sure up your defensive record?

46. Sergio Rico

Spoiler

IMG_6822.thumb.PNG.a777960b9a57272dd0bbda3faa977657.PNG

Another Spaniard and another Goalkeeper, Rico makes our list because of his imposing precence in between the sticks at Sevilla. Conceding just 1.21 per game, Rico has been a rock and his incredible stats show it. At just 21, can he surpass De Gea, and even Casillas?

45. Anderson Talisca or 'Talisca' 

Spoiler

IMG_6823.thumb.PNG.e78588a62a507b5bad80a48cc133118d.PNG

This young Brazilian is often underused and underpraised in the football world. His loan to Besiktas came as a surprise this year, but his form did not. His 13 goals and 6 assists for the Turkish outfit mean he makes it as one of the most prolific Midfielders on the planet. With such amazing stats, will he fill the hole in your team.

44. Samir Santos or 'Samir'

Spoiler

IMG_6824.thumb.PNG.cb0a21f0fdc6bc6078651ad3c6072173.PNG

Don't let the stats fool you. Samir has had a very good year at the heart of Udinese's defence, winning 1.8 aerial duels per game and averaging a rating of 7.23. He often becomes a very good player, will you use that potential?

43. Sebastian Haller

Spoiler

IMG_6825.thumb.PNG.ac785c6dc665dac554a260529b0eca54.PNG

The young Frenchman has had a commendable year so far, smashing in 13 and laying on 5 for his Utrecht team mates. His stats are fantastic for a striker this young, and surely he can lead the scoring charts in whatever league you chose to use him in?

42. Kasper Dolberg

Spoiler

IMG_6826.thumb.PNG.344238953388c0d39f4625d3f5d1039a.PNG

One of the more obvious ones on the list, Dolberg has been clinical in Holland this year. His 21 goals and 7.31 rating for the Amsterdam club this season have shown his value, despite his young age. With big clubs often sniffing, can you snatch a deal for the Dutch Maestro?

41. Dani Ceballos

Spoiler

IMG_6827.thumb.PNG.20766c7a179b3aae4708c5a0b1848a38.PNG

The heir to Iniesta's throne, Ceballos has helped carry Betis so far this year, with his 81.1% pass completion rate helping create crucial goals for Real 'Hispalis' this season. Aswell as this, he has managed a 7.28 AVR this year, meaning he is one of the highest performing players in La Liga this year.

40. Mattia Caldara

Spoiler

IMG_6828.thumb.PNG.fa6047d93cf75ee23a95e21d818fed40.PNG

The Italian shares similar qualities as his Juve team mates Barzagli and Bonnuci. However, he has spent his season with Atalanta, where he has managed to win 1.4 aerial duels per match and a solid 84.5% pass completion ratio, meaning he is a quality BPD. Can he become the Bonnuci your team needs?

39. Emerson Palmeiri or 'Emerson'

Spoiler

IMG_6829.thumb.PNG.7a9817fdcdcfe851c93286a4cbf8a9cd.PNG

This fullback has been exceptional for the Rome outfit this year. His 7.42 AVR has seen Roma become solid down the wings, and his 84.5% pass completion ratio make him a valuable asset for any team

38. Andrea Conti

Spoiler

IMG_6830.thumb.PNG.0f6a4bcbecec12b09654537c88384679.PNG

The Italian Right-Back has good stats for his age, and has had a solid season. His 1.2 aerials won this year, aswell as his 7.12 AVR have made him an asset for Atalanta, but can he be one for your team?

37. Leandro Parades

Spoiler

IMG_6831.thumb.PNG.db17b204023852085f3d81d10b8a8263.PNG

The underrated Argentinian has some stellar stats for his age, and his performances on the pitch this season have justified them. His 3 goals and 1 assist have showcased his talent in the Serie A this year, accompanied by his 88.3% pass completion ratio, he is one of the best passing players in Europe

36. Timo Werner

Spoiler

IMG_6832.thumb.PNG.f9a2845bc60116c5fa9aa15d75c9dc09.PNG

The German Sensation has been in stellar form for Leipzig during their stunning Bundesliga campaign this season, smashing 21 goals past Opposition keepers. If you want a finisher, you've found one.

35. Naby Keita

Spoiler

IMG_6833.thumb.PNG.245b5ba2b8371073ad942a9a57420606.PNG

An Kante type of player, Keita has had a good season so far. Managing 8 goals and 7 assists in a Leipzig shirt, aswell as an 81.5% pass completion ratio, his quality is obvious.

34. Sead Kolasinac

Spoiler

IMG_6834.thumb.PNG.b5fe87bf72055d66946f8ef577e54b6d.PNG

This flamboyant Bosnian has had a fantastic season over in Germany, even attracting interest from champions Chelsea. His 7.32 AVR is a good reason why, aswell as his 5 assists from the Left Back spot. If you want anybody there, Kolasinac is the man.

33. Saul Niguez or 'Saul'

Spoiler

IMG_6835.thumb.PNG.572af62b1d2b9b4934ec33a2b8d352ab.PNG

Probably one of the more established members of our list, Saul's stats are absoloutley amazing for his age. Aswell as this, he has been an asset in Atletico's midfield, scoring 9 goals and winning 2.3 of his aerials per game. Not bad for a 21 year old.

32. Yeray Alvarez or 'Yeray' 

Spoiler

IMG_6836.thumb.PNG.a6bed60bdd19195700ae4640a2335d07.PNG

Yeray has had his breakthrough year in 2016/17, becoming a rock in the Bilbao defence. His presence is felt every match, with him winning 2.3 aerials per game. Alongside this, his AVR of 7.23 makes him a mainstay in their defence for many years to come. Don't let his average stats fool you, he becomes a world beater.

31. Marcus Llorente

Spoiler

IMG_6837.thumb.PNG.1b2e91cbf1df2777e1724a83e97b7d92.PNG

The Madrid B side player has had his chance in the limelight this season as he turns out for overachieving Alaves, where he has made a massive impact. His 15 In-Game passing reflects his 81% pass completion rate from the season, and he looks set to become a Madrista next year.

30. Ben Gibson

Spoiler

IMG_6838.thumb.PNG.c5b228c59c08a2b28a722a73b384bab4.PNG

A bit of a strange choice on our parts you may think, but Gibson's stats reflect that of a young John Terry, and his form for the struggling Boro hasn't been too bad. His 1.6 aerial duels won per game means he's a hard nut to crack in the air, whilst a 84.8% pass completion rate means he is an outstanding player of the ball. If you are looking for home grown talent, look no further.

29. Alfie Mawson

Spoiler

IMG_6839.thumb.PNG.5b3ed2e131c5c49ce69753077143887c.PNG

One of the silver linings of Swansea's relegation threatened season has been th emergence of Mawson. The young Centre Back has impressed during his run in the team, managing a massive 3 aerials won per game! He often becomes an England international, can he become more than that in your save?

28. Tom Carroll

Spoiler

IMG_6840.thumb.PNG.ebc7e41ee99a2ea09b967f5d340992fb.PNG

Another Swansea player on our list, Carroll joined the Swans from Spurs, and since then has gone on to become a mainstay in their midfield, helping them in their quest to avoid the drop. His 81.2% pass completion rate has seen Swansea create more and more chances, and his involvement in their survival has been crucial. 

27. Tammy Abraham

Spoiler

IMG_6841.thumb.PNG.d3bbb95af3f3940c8b29d8a9ad4dbb7f.PNG

A suggestion from my previous list, Abraham has had a quality season at Bristol on loan from the Blues, banging in a massive 26 goals to boost their chances of survival. His fantastic shooting, pace and teamwork make him the perfect PL striker, can you make him a legend?

26. Henry Onyekuru

Spoiler

IMG_6842.thumb.PNG.4331b4be62dc4629fb403d053104f8a4.PNG

This is the man that has been recently linked with a move to West Ham, and it's easy to see why. Some fantastic attributes a company his stats, with him banging in 10 goals in 11 games for Belgian side Eupen. A prolific player, and perfect for any EPL side. 

25. Leander Dendoncker

Spoiler

IMG_6843.thumb.PNG.56c53959e82f1f4863aa3b3b21f0a375.PNG

Dendoncker can play anywhere along the defensive spine, and with his quality stats he can become the best in his role. He has been a brute for Anderlecht this year, winning 2.7 aerials per game and having an 85% pass completion rate, you can't argue this guy looks good. 

24. Uros Spajic

Spoiler

IMG_6844.thumb.PNG.d4c4569fec1e84551ef9f0cde9cf6fcc.PNG

The Serbian beast Spajic has some pretty average stats when you look at him, but he becomes a fantastic Centre-Back. This year for Anderlecht, Spajic managed to win 2.3 aerials per game and achieve a AVR of 7.12. Will he become your clubs version of Nemanja Vidic?

23. Jere Uronen

Spoiler

IMG_6845.thumb.PNG.00bee334b191d0b273b78e6602a9e1cf.PNG

This time we move to another part of Belgium to view a Left Back who has had a brilliant season for Genk. Uronen has managed 2 goals from the Left Back spot, aswell as an 81.7% Pass completion rate. If you feel like taking a punt on an unknown talent, Uronen is the man to plump for.

22. Sander Berge

Spoiler

IMG_6846.thumb.PNG.471f68eb345bc0d3abe34140def19c22.PNG

Another decent Norwegian wonderkid to line up with Odegaard, Berge is a quality Centre Midfielder. With some IT, lots of those blues turn to greens, and we could see development in real life aswell after a stellar season which saw him grab a 7.22 AVR, aswell as a 82.1% pass completion rate. Could he be the next big thing?

21. Frederic Guilbert

Spoiler

IMG_6847.thumb.PNG.e069d6fde65208e956007197e21a766e.PNG

Guilbert has some very average stats at the start of the game, but his seasonal figures this year make him seem like a superstar from a Centre Back. He has managed to win 2.4 aerials per game, aswell as collecting a 7.15 AVR. The successor to Kocielny, or something else all together?

20. Wylan Cyprien

Spoiler

IMG_6848.thumb.PNG.54ee0f63cafc0dd3abdbd30645cc7587.PNG

Cyprien has really broken into the Nice first team this year, becoming an asset in their first team. He has managed 9 goals so far this year, aswell as a 88.4% Pass Completion Rate. Some fantastic attributes for a player his age, he could be the Gerrard your team is after.

19. Ricardo Pereira

Spoiler

IMG_6849.thumb.PNG.4b1908472d3ccf29e1a7e0f68cb403ae.PNG

Pereira has followed in Cyprien's example this year for Nice by contributing massively to the clubs Ligue 1 campaign. The full Back has managed 4 assists this year, an impressive amount for a Right Back. He can be a mainstay in any EPL team, will he be in yours?

18. Thomas Lemar

Spoiler

IMG_6850.thumb.PNG.edf45cf558c72dc25482b1081f2678aa.PNG

Lemar's are already fantastic, and he will only develop in the future. This year has helped his development massively, with him grabbing 9 goals and 8 assists in a talent packed Monaco side. Aswell as this, Lemar has a 7.46 AVR, making him a quality injector in the side. 

17. Kylian Mbappe

Spoiler

IMG_6852.thumb.PNG.d4aac2d703c8ab3a950b6b0d0a087862.PNG

This little lad has caused stir in world football after his scintillating performances in the UCL this year, and his domestic form isn't bad either. This year, Mbappe has managed 25 goals at the age of 18! (IRL he is 18 now) If he continues this form, don't be surprised if the rumours not come true and Madrid come knocking.

16. Mauricio Lemos

Spoiler

IMG_6851.thumb.PNG.c961074c106394261ba1b7e32a55d79b.PNG

Lugano's heir Lemos has had a good year in La Liga for Las Palmas this season. An FMM favourite, Lemos has managed to score 5 goals from the Centre Back spot, aswell as averaging 1.3 aerials won per game. His defensive and attacking traits are obvious, can you get the best out of them?

15. Tiemoue Bakayoko

Spoiler

IMG_6853.thumb.PNG.d107a4cc2f6c4ed3a5f92dc35493c535.PNG

This young Makelele type Frenchman has massively impressed in Monaco's squad this year, being the transition between attack and defence in many situations. He has managed to win 1.9 aerial duels this year, making him an unmovable rock in the Monaco midfield. Can you utilise his talents and make him BETTER than Makelele?

14. Kingsley Coman

Spoiler

IMG_6854.thumb.PNG.e9f725b196a6f7832ba241cafb9de560.PNG

An obvious choice in there, Coman has impressed in Bavaria this year. His stats include an 85.9% Pass Completion Ratio, which has been key to Bayern's successes this year. An expensive option, but always, always worth it. 

13. Franck Kessie

Spoiler

IMG_6855.thumb.PNG.7859fba3d997767b566f3c28780e8548.PNG

This young Ivorian has been considered a wonderkid for a few years now, and that notion has only improved a short he has. His contribution to Atalanta's season has been massive, with him grabbing 7 goals from midfield in the Serie A. He has also managed a 84.6% Pass Completion Rate, meaning he often orchestrates attacks. With 16 Tackling and 15 Movement, could he be considered the Ivorian Kante?

12. Balde Keita

Spoiler

IMG_6856.thumb.PNG.f6f45d2c6f513912bfb8a96b93c51d48.PNG

Keita has had a stellar year for Lazio, and his stats only back that up. These include a massive 15 goals from the wings, which has massively helped Lazio climb the table. Another expensive option, but this time you are guaranteed a profit if things don't go your way. 

11. Andrea Belotti

Spoiler

IMG_6857.thumb.PNG.b3c2dc065aaa8ba6b49327658736db71.PNG

No description needed. Belotti has and always will be an FMM favourite, and his stats this year are incredible. He has grabbed 30 goals this year, which leaves him 2nd in the Capocannionere. Is a big move on for the Italian?

10. Andre Silva

Spoiler

IMG_6858.thumb.PNG.5cf559547bc423b518b54ad3b8f8b56d.PNG

The last playable player on our list, Silva is a cheaper option with incredible attributes. He has lead Porto to glory this year, scoring 20 goals and creating 7 for his team mates. Silva could be the next Ronaldo, in your save anyway. 

The Non-Playables

Players not available in this years games, but should be next year....

9. Cyle Larin - Orlando City - 7 Goals in 10 Games

8. Gonzalo Martinez - River Plate - 4 Goals, 4 Assists, 7.52 AVR

7. German Conti - Colon - 3.4 Aerials Won, 7.34 AVR

6. Kenneth Zohore - Cardiff - 12 Goals, 4.8 Aerials Won

5. Aleksey Miranchuk - Lokomotiv Moscow - 5 Goals, 5 Assists, 80.8 Pass Completion

4. Ohi Omoijuanfo - Stabaek - 7 Goals in 8 Games

3. Josef Martinez - Atalanta United - 5 Goals, 81% Pass Completion

2. Gilbert Koomson - Sogndal - 4 Goals, 1 Assist, 7.35 AVR

1. Filip Dagerstal - IFK Noerkopping - 2 Goals, 7.36 AVR

 

So there you are folks! Baring in mind that took me and @KennyMiller27 a few hours of reaserching and took me at least 1.5 hours to write up, a few comments on some of the players would be appreciated, aswell as your general thoughts. 

Big thanks to KennyMiller27 for helping me out, and, well, enjoy!

Just finished reading this and all I got to say is WOW! I've either heard of or used/seen in FMM much of the players. A key point is the fact that Kolasinac has I think signed with Arsenal according to Sky Sports so it's best to use him now as his price will sky rocket. Pontus Jansson and Jota are some good Championship shouts.

Hi mate it's good to be back here & reading this amazing post. One of my favorite player from this post is talisca , a beast, i often use him as BBM or DLF .

Kasper dolberg is sensational this season so is his team mate Justin Kluivert (he deserved spot in this list).

Sandro's performance against my beloved  Barca left me wondering why club let him leave on free transfer when they needed a striker & loaning Munir was mistake considering that Valencia can have him for only €13m.

Pontus Jansson is definitely one for next year - Torino tend to gouge your eye out for him in 17!

Cheers mate, a lot of scouting and stuff involved but it was quite fun actually :D Haven't seen Sky Sports yet so will check when I get time, but that would be an interesting transfer. Heard of both of the lads you have mentioned, maybe me and KennyMiller27 will end up making a championship edition....

Good to hear mate, Talisca has had a great year and his stats are immense, and Dendoncker is a brute. Hope you enjoyed :D

Hi mate, welcome back! Cheers bud, good to hear Talisca is one of your favourites as I think he is a phenomenal player, definitely should be used more.

Dolberg has been great as you say, although Kluivert didn't appear anywhere during our scouting so maybe we'll have another look next time. 

Sandro is quality and don't know why Barca let him leave, could be the next Villa.

 

Cheers for all the comments lads, amazing to wake up and see these. Cheers from me and @KennyMiller27

Yes, he's had a very good breakthrough season in a pretty poor team.
