an orange(as you said), but Acceleration
and Explosive Power
should be on high-yellows and mid-yellows respectively, also. Generally, much quicker than what he is currently given, especially with the ball, throwing it forward and accelerate past opponents, for example his goals Vs Spurs and Vs Leicester(also, zig-zag dribbling is also part of his playing-style, like his goal vs Zorya).
On the other hand, Defence
, Body Balance
are some of the most certain areas that need downgrade
Defensively, not only nothing fantastic, but also not good enough defensive-wise for the position of Attacking-Midfield/Winger, and his work-rate in general has been questionable at times. Physically-wise, even though his good Stamina helps him keep running until the late stages of the match, in my eyes he is a soft-ish player in physical battles, and certainly much more soft than Alexis Sanchez, with whom he is currently sharing the same Body Balance value. What is more, his Form has been relatively inconsistent through-out the years. From brilliant in Shakhtar to struggling in Dortmund, then from world-class in Dortmund last Season to inconsistent so far for Manchester United. There is no doubt that he is a quality player, but especially this Season, his Form has been very inconsistent. At first, he struggled to be in Man United's match-day squads, let alone the starting-eleven, but just before the middle of the Season, a series of top performances mainly in less important matches(with the exception of maybe Spurs) lead to him being picked much more frequently nowadays, but you can still see the inconsistencies in his performances, for example from being average at best Vs Hull to being MOTM Vs Leicester in half a week. Once he starts performing well in big matches also, in addition to the less important matches, and prevent himself from taking-over something like "Ozil's big-game Syndrome", then he will be fine and a guaranteed starter for Manchester United.
