With today's goal, he's already at 11, which places him among the top strikers of the league (not counting Ronaldo nor Messi of course, since those play in a different level in terms of goalscoring). Considering Rayo has scored a total of 27 goals so far, that makes Michu's contribution absolutely vital, key player without a doubt.
I think the set could get some updates again. For starters, we could even delete the CM position as he's unlikely to play there again, not this season at least (it's really a waste to play him as a central midfielder considering his presence and resolution in the opposition area). ATT has to go up. RES could also get a slight upgrade, he's been showing a nice poachiness and reactions to loose balls, like in his goal today. Agility on the other hand should go down, as I argumented in a previous post; he's not a player of swift movements nor quick turns.
Attack: 77 -> 81. Much deserved, considering how sharp he's become roaming the box.
Response: 82 -> 85. Poachy and reactive near and in the box. Get a look at his goal today... first he manages to anticipate everybody and gets into position to shoot, then his first shot is parried by the keeper yet still gets the ball again very quick (before the defenders react) and slams it home. RES should be one of his key stats without a doubt.
Agility: 79 -> 77. As explained earlier.
Dribble Speed: 76 -> 78. I'd say he deserves a two point increase here... doesn't seem that slow on the ball to me, can actually keep a decent pace when moving with the ball... not a great dribbler, but decent in this aspect.
Shot Accuracy: 76 -> 79. Has been very effective lately when facing goal, doesn't shoot much yet still scores quite a bunch of very important goals for his team. It's not like he's a world class shooter but his general placement is quite good overall, finding the corners of the net with relative ease. Has improved inmensely since his Celta days.
Shot Technique: 78 -> 80. Considering his frame, he's quite good at shooting under pressure and shows pretty decent connections. Fares well from uncomfortable positions, etc.
Header: 83 -> 84. He's also quite a threat in the air and his current Header/Jump combo barely displays it. I'm suggesting a +1 increase for each one, although I'd like to hear more opinions on the matter. He's clearly underrated in this regard if you ask me.
Jump: 76 -> 77.
Aggression: 82 -> 85/86 (at least). Not only sharp when entering 'enemy territory', but also an offensive minded player who knows very well what he's doing when he roams near the opposition box. Current AGG value makes him too 'pasive' IMO, sometimes stays behind when he clearly shouldn't... a significative increase is in order, I think.

DEF has nothing
to do with positioning.
