The 2020-21 ePremier League finalist chats to MATCH!


JOE SAYS: “It’s been really good! I didn’t expect a lot as I put a lot more time into the game last year than I’ve done this year. I couldn’t pinpoint what it is about this year’s game that suits me more, but it definitely does seem too!”


JOE SAYS: “I’d say one thing that has helped me has been watching gameplay back! There are also a lot of coaching channels now on YouTube that point you in the right direction and they have helped me get to where I am!”


JOE SAYS: “There are a lot of good teams out there right now, I think the most notable one is Ruud Gullit’s team. They’ve got a lot of good players! I’ve been in the scene for a very long time, but this type of thing definitely gives it a bit more direction!”


JOE SAYS: “I think my best performance was using a 3-5-2 in one of the FUT Champions Cups. I would prefer to play a 4-4-2, but I’ve been using a 4-3-1-2 with just a heavy press hoping to pin people in. That seems to be my go-to!”


JOE SAYS: “Probably Bruno. He’s definitely been the most consistent for me in central midfield and I’ve ended up using him as a striker! He’s definitely been my favourite player!”


JOE SAYS: “It’s been really good! They are a team I’ve supported since I was born and the only team I’d ever want to play for. I don’t think we’ve ever made a good account of ourselves in this tournament, so it feels good to have got Arsenal in the top four!”

Joe Healy was speaking to MATCH ahead of the ePL Finals. You can watch the action back as eight finalists went head-to-head on the Premier League’s social media channels (, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube).
