FIFA 22 Ultimate Team: Best midfielders you can buy
EA is back with another round of FIFA Ultimate Team action. Here are the best midfielders you should add to your FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
The much-anticipated release of FIFA 22 is finally here. EA’s annual football franchise is back, and so with it comes Ultimate Team, so here are the best midfielders to buy in FIFA 22.
Picking an Ultimate Team can be a huge decision for many FIFA players as they want to try and create one chemistry-rich team that they can stick with for ages. At the same time, others will chop and change the game’s best players to test everyone out.
In either scenario, having the best players in each position can truly make an unbeatable Ultimate Team. Now that the official FIFA 22 player ratings are out there, we’ve put together our list of the best of the best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team midfielders you’ll need.
Best midfielders in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
There will be many players with tasty overalls to consider, but not all of them fit the mold of an “Ultimate Team.”
In the middle of the park, you need players that can fill in for marauding full-backs, have the presence to help out defenders at corners, and even make those long-bursting runs forward to pick up some goals.
As the ratings are now official, these are the players that will dominate the midfield in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
|Bruno Fernandes||Manchester United||CAM||88|
|Bernardo Silva||Manchester City||CAM||86|
|Marco Reus||Borussia Dortmund||CAM||85|
|Phil Foden||Manchester City||CAM||84|
|Kevin De Bruyne||Manchester City||CM||91|
|Leon Goretzka||Bayern Munich||CM||87|
|Luka Modric||Real Madrid||CM||87|
|Frenkie de Jong||Barcelona||CM||87|
|Paul Pogba||Manchester United||CM||87|
|Joshua Kimmich||Bayern Munich||CDM||89|
|Wilfred Ndidi||Leicester City||CDM||85|
Best cheap midfielders in FUT 22
We won’t lie. Some of these players will be pushing seven digits in terms of their value, maybe even greatly surpassing it considering they could be the best FIFA 22 Ultimate midfielders.
So until you can rack up some coins or pray to the heavens that you get some pack luck on your side, you’ll need some cheaper alternatives in the meantime.
The football scene has some great prospects at the moment and lots of players who will receive a nice overall boost thanks to their performances at Euro 2020.
Barcelona’s hot prospect Pedri boasts great dribbling ability and passing potential. Given his age, FIFA may do him dirty and give him reduced stamina, but he could be one to watch.
Also, players like Everton’s Allan and Doucoure should be decent all-around options, not too expensive, and ideal for chemistry. You can also never rule out Renato Sanches, especially as he’s just won Ligue 1 and played for Portugal in Euro 2020.

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.
