Best cheap goalkeepers in FUT 22
If you’re new to Ultimate Team, 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, and at 1,800 coins this year remains a great option with an 83 rating.
Emi Martinez was a popular choice last year, and is still affordable at 3,600, while those with Bundesliga squads can pick up either Yann Sommer or Péter Gulácsi, both 85 rated, for just 6,000 coins.
You can take a look at our best cheap goalkeepers below.
|Emi Martinez||Aston Villa||84||3,600|
|Yann Sommer||Borussia Mönchengladbach||85||6,100|
|Péter Gulácsi||RB Liepzig||85||5,900|
|Mike Maignan||AC Milan||84||5,700|
|Sergio Asenjo Andrés||Villareal||83||2,100|

What are FUT Hero cards in FIFA 23
FUT Hero cards were a new introduction in FIFA 22 and the concept is meant to highlight incredible players of the past who never quite reached icon status.
EA picked a set of players that shared a common characteristic of leadership and respect for the clubs they played for.
These Hero items are special cards in FUT as they utilize unique chemistry attributes. They offer league-specific chemistry and provide a green club link to any player within the same league.
FIFA 23 confirmed FUT Hero cards
While EA have yet to announce every new FIFA 23 FUT Hero, they have revealed the first few stars from the Premier League that will show up.
Here’s a full list of expected FIFA 23 FUT Hero players, with new cards marked in bold.

FIFA 22 worst ratings: 5 players who need an upgrade in FIFA 23
In preparation for FIFA 23, we’re looking back at the five worst FIFA 22 ratings to highlight who is most deserving of an upgrade.
These five players are most deserving of a major rating upgrade in FIFA 23 after receiving some of the worst ratings in FIFA 22.
Each year, player ratings generate a ton of buzz as fans of the franchise discuss which ratings EA perfected, and which ratings fell short of the mark. Of course, player ratings impact all of FIFA 23’s modes, but they usually have the biggest impact on the incredibly popular Ultimate Team mode.
Using FIFA 22 ratings, here are five players who are most deserving of an upgrade in FIFA 23.
While Ramsdale is certainly deserving of an upgrade following his successful season at Arsenal, it’s easy to understand why EA Sports opted for a rating of 74 in FIFA 22. Not only was Ramsdale unproven in the competitive Premier League, but with Bernd Leno as Arsenal’s first-choice keeper, Ramsdale was viewed as a goalkeeper for the future.
Of course, all that changed as Ramsdale earned the number one spot and tallied 34 Premier League appearances and 12 clean sheets for Arsenal in his debut season for the club, which makes him deserving of a much-improved rating in FIFA 23.
Torino was expected to have a truly disappointing 2021/2022 season, but an extremely positive campaign awaited the club instead. The Italian side managed a tenth-place finish in Serie A and this was mostly thanks to the stellar displays from defender Bremer.
Bremer began FIFA 22 as a 76-rated player and has since earned a Serie A defender of the year award, as well as a high-profile move to Juventus. There isn’t a center-back who is more deserving of a FIFA 23 upgrade than Bremer.
Jonathan Clauss may be a defender in FIFA 22, but his style of play as an attacking fullback earned him a few TOTW items and a well-deserved spot on the Ligue 1 TOTS. Much like Bremer, Claus was the reason his Lens side overachieved in 2021/2022 with a seventh-place finish.
Clauss has since moved to Marseille where the RWB will look to improve on his five goals and eleven assists totaled in the previous campaign.
One glance at a Newcastle match and it’s clear to see why Saint-Maximin is deserving of breaking into the 80s in FIFA 23. The winger is a magician with the ball at his feet and is simply a nightmare for opposing defenders to handle.
His pace and dribbling are breathtaking to watch and even with major investment coming into the club and attracting world-class players, Newcastle stated that Saint-Maximin is not for sale.
His goals and assists tally may have been low, but we must remember that he played on a Newcastle side that narrowly avoided relegation last season. With a rejuvenated squad, expect Saint-Maximin to shine as he continues to prove that a rating of 79 would be too low in FIFA 23.
Before succumbing to a cruciate ligament injury that ended his season in March 2022, Florian Wirtz looked like one of the best players in the Bundesliga. Granted the midfielder is only 19 years old and a rating of 78 is quite impressive, but given his impact at Leverkusen, Wirtz is worthy of a FIFA 23 upgrade.
Wirtz accumulated 17 direct goal contributions in 24 Bundesliga games for Leverkusen. If his development continues on this trajectory, expect Wirtz to validate an improved FIFA 23 rating.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch: OTW promo explained & predictions
FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is set to be the first major promo of FUT 23, so here’s everything we know about the event so far.
FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is expected to be the first major promo of this season’s Ultimate Team, celebrating the most exciting moves from the summer transfer window. Here’s how FIFA 23 OTW will work, along with the players likely to feature.
Ones to Watch is always one of the most interesting and exciting promos in any FIFA, mainly because it tends to be the very first major event of the year. FIFA 23 will be no exception, as EA look to shine the spotlight on the biggest transfers of the summer.
FIFA 22 OTW was arguably the biggest ever, as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo switched clubs in a crazy end to the transfer window. While FIFA 23 OTW is unlikely to have as many groundbreaking signings to choose from, some of the game’s highest-rated players have been on the move.
Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, from how the cards will work to the players we expect to see.
- Is there a FIFA 23 Ones to Watch start date?
- FIFA 23 Ones to Watch explained
- FIFA 23 Ones to Watch predictions
Is there a FIFA 23 Ones to Watch start date?
EA are yet to confirm when FIFA 23 Ones to Watch will kick off, but we can look at previous years to gain a pretty good idea.
Last year, OTW got underway on October 1, the same day as FIFA 22’s worldwide release. With this in mind, we’d expect FIFA 23 OTW to begin on Friday, September 30, 2022.
This is the expected FIFA 23 release date based on various leaks and the usual schedule, but we’ll add new information to this section once it’s available.
FIFA 23 Ones to Watch explained
FIFA 23 OTW will award special live cards to players who have recently moved to a new club. These dynamic items will go up in rating depending on how well the player performs for their club in real life.
Each time a OTW star is handed a TOTW after a top display in their domestic league, the card will increase in rating and stats to match the most recent one.
For example, in FIFA 22, Dayot Upamecano started out at an 82-rated card after his move to Bayern Munich. But, by the end of the year, he was 87-rated and one of the best center-backs that the Bundesliga had to offer.
They will also receive an extra +1 boost for winning a certain number of matches after the promo begins. Last year, the threshold was five wins out of 10 games after October 2.
We’ll update this section with more specific information once EA officially announces the promo.
FIFA 23 Ones to Watch predictions
The summer transfer window is far from closed, but we’ve already seen some major signings that are a shoo-in to be a FIFA 23 OTW. On top of that, there are plenty of deals that are on the verge of going through that will surely make the cut.
Here are our predictions for FIFA 23 Ones to Watch so far:
|Player Name||Transfer||Transfer Confirmed?||Predicted Rating|
|Robert Lewandowski||Bayern Munich to Barcelona||Yes||92|
|Erling Haaland||Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City||Yes||90|
|Sadio Mane||Liverpool to Bayern Munich||Yes||90|

|Aurelien Tchouameni||AS Monaco to Real Madrid||Yes||82|
|Boubacar Kamara||Marseille to Aston Villa||Yes||82|
|Richarlison||Everton to Spurs||Yes||82|
|Darwin Nunez||Benfica to Liverpool||Yes||81|
|Renato Sanches||Lille to PSG||Yes||81|
|Mario Gotze||PSV to Eintracht Frankfurt||Yes||81|
|Ivan Perisic||Inter Milan to Spurs||Yes||81|
|Ryan Gravenberch||Ajax to Bayern Munich||Yes||80|
|Karim Adeyemi||RB Salzburg to Borussia Dortmund||Yes||76|
