FIFA 22 Career Mode gives fans the chance to act out their ultimate fantasy – building a club from scratch. This means players will be looking for the best midfielders to drive their new FIFA 22 Career Mode team to success. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
This year, the ability to build an entire club from the ground up has the community particularly excited.
After the stadium is in place and the kits have been designed, attention will turn to fill out the actual squad. The middle of the park is where games are won and lost, so here are the best midfielders you should sign in FIFA 22 Career Mode.
Best midfielders in FIFA 22 Career Mode
A strong midfield is just as important in FIFA as it is in the real sport. In many ways, the engine room is what shapes the team you are looking to build.
Picking the right combination of midfielders is vital, whether it be a defensive-minded enforcer to sit in front of the defense, a playmaker who can pull strings, or someone more box-to-box who can do it all.
Finding the right man for the job can be a tricky business, but luckily there is plenty of world-class talent in FIFA 22 to your midfield, a force to be reckoned with.
|Player Name||Position||Age||Club||Predicted Rating|
|Kevin De Bruyne||CAM||30||Manchester City||91|
|Bruno Fernandes||CAM||27||Manchester United||89|
|Marco Reus||CAM||32||Borussia Dortmund||85|
|Toni Kroos||CM||31||Real Madrid||88|
|Luka Modric||CM||35||Real Madrid||87|
|Paul Pogba||CM||28||Manchester United||86|
|Frenkie de Jong||CM||24||Barcelona||85|
|Joshua Kimmich||CDM||26||Bayern Munich||89|
Best young midfielders
The key to any successful Career Mode is planning for the future. Buying a world-class player might work in the short term, but how will the team look in two or three seasons’ time?
This is why it’s important to look at young prospects when dipping into the transfer market for the best Midfielders in FIFA 22 Career Mode so that you can grow and develop them into the stars of tomorrow.
FIFA 22 is packed with plenty of midfield wonderkids for you to snap up, so here are the very best that you should try and sign. We’ll update his list with potential ratings once we get our hands on the game.

Best cheap midfielders
If we’re being completely honest, a lot of the players we’ve listed so far will take a lot of investment if you’re going to bring them in.
But, of course, not every signing has to break the bank. Sometimes a new player is needed to be a reliable backup or a short-term replacement after someone was poached by another club on deadline day.
It can be difficult to scout the right player when you’re working on a budget, so here are some great cheap midfield options that won’t cost too much.
We’ll update this list with prices once FIFA 22 is released.
|Manuel Lanzini||CAM||28||West Ham United|
|Emil Forsberg||CAM||29||RB Leipzig|
|Jesse Lingard||CAM||28||Manchester United|

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Best defenders you can buy
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has landed, and we’ve picked out our predictions for the best defenders to fill out your squad this year.
FIFA 22 has arrived, and football fans are gearing up for another round of Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the best defenders you should pick in FUT 22.
What goes without saying is that having the best players in each position is vitally important to being competitive when faced with high-skilled opponents.
Best defenders in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
Even though it’s the strikers that tend to grab the headlines, keeping things tight at the back is just as important. That being said, like most years, not every top defender in the game will fit the game’s meta and be able to cope with the talented attackers they will have to deal with.
Defenders need to have the intelligence to read the game when opponents are in position, but also have the speed to recover when a pacey forward inevitably beats the offside trap.
With EA unveiling the full lineup of player ratings, these are the best center-backs on the market in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
|Virgil van Dijk||Liverpool||89|
|Ruben Dias||Manchester City||87|
|Raphael Varane||Manchester United||86|
|Milan Skriniar||Inter Milan||86|
|Aymeric Laporte||Manchester City||86|
|Stefan de Vrij||Inter Milan||85|
Best cheap defenders in FUT 22
Some of the defenders we’ve listed there are probably going to set you back a few coins, especially in the early weeks when the Transfer Market is still taking shape. In this case, you might be seeking cheaper options.
Edmond Tapsoba has plenty of pace for his modest 81 ratings and will link nicely to the great selection of Bundesliga defenders. Kostas Manolas is also notoriously reliable in the early game, but his Greek nationality keeps his price from breaking the bank.
In the Premier League, Antonio Rudiger and Tyrone Mings make a neat partnership that doesn’t cost too much. The Chelsea man for his solid pace, and the England star for his complementary aerial ability and strong left foot.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Best goalkeepers you can buy
Picking the right shot stopper in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team can be a tricky business, so we’ve put together the best goalkeepers you should try.
With FIFA 22’s worldwide release just around the corner, many will soon be turning their attention to their next Ultimate Team campaign, so here are our predictions for the best goalkeepers to aim for once FUT finally drops.
FIFA 22 is finally here, and the community is eager to get off to the perfect start in this year’s Ultimate Team. The full list of player ratings is now in the wild, and players can begin plotting out their perfect squad to achieve FUT glory.
Goalkeepers are always a vital part of any squad, and picking the right man between the sticks can be the difference between winning and losing. Here are the best FIFA 22 Ultimate goalkeepers you should look at when you get your hands on FUT 22.
Best goalkeepers in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
It can be tough to find the perfect goalkeeper to fit a team. You have to consider which stats are most important to you, whether it be reflexes, kicking, or something as simple as height.
This year, EA have given keepers a big update with improvements to the AI and a fresh batch of animations to help them make those crucial saves. So much so, some beta players were reporting they were too overpowered.
Considering this, particularly early in the game, going for one of the highest-rated FIFA 22 Ultimate Team goalkeepers who fit in chemistry-wise could be the way to keep things tight at the back.
These are the top 10 best goalkeepers in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team:
|Jan Oblak||Athletico Madrid||91|
|Manuel Neuer||Bayern Munich||90|
|Marc-Andre ter Stegen||Barcelona||90|
|Thibaut Courtois||Real Madrid||89|
Best cheap goalkeepers in FUT 22
Especially when you’re first starting, one of the world’s best goalkeepers might be slightly out of budget. If this is the case, it pays to look at some cheaper options for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team goalkeepers while grinding out coins.
That’s not to say this will leave your defense vulnerable, as plenty of lower-rated players have become staples of pro teams for one reason or another. Nick Pope was a prime example in FIFA 21, who was keeping the likes of Alisson out until the final weeks.
At 82 rated, West Ham’s Alphonse Areola is a solid cheap option thanks to his impressive all-round stats and French chemistry links. Likewise, Barcelona’s Norberto Neto is a great temporary stopper while you farm for coins.
We’ll update this section with a full list of the best budget options for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Goalkeepers when the Transfer Market takes shape.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week: TOTW 1 & featured players
TOTW is back again in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and we’ve got everything you need to know about how it works – including the latest squad.
EA has revealed that the Team of the Week is returning to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. This time, however, they’re addressing some long-running fan complaints. Here’s how FIFA 22 TOTW will work.
Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is how it incorporates real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the new FUT Heroes.
One of the mode’s oldest special items is the Team of the Week, which offers players a weekly batch of new upgraded cards to help build out their squads. We’ve got everything you need to know about FUT TOTW right here.
We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW, so be sure to check back here every week.
FIFA 22 FUT TOTW 1
The very first FIFA 22 TOTW is here, and it’s full of big names. Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah is one of the standouts after his display in the win against Leeds.
Meanwhile, Bayern’s Joshua Kimmich is the joint-highest rated, following the German champions’ strong to the season.
Ivan Toney is the featured TOTW. His card has been boosted from 76 to an impressive 84.

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?
Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.
Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.
Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Player’s can not receive an in-form two weeks in a row.
While the in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Featured TOTW
In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.
Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.
To qualify for this additional stat-boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.
When is the TOTW released?
Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.
Historically, the announcement comes at 10 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, although TOTW 1 arrived a couple of hours earlier.
We’ll update this post with an exact schedule as and when it is available.
