FIFA 22 Flashback Trent Alexander-Arnold stats
The Liverpool right-back has had his position switched to center midfield in a nod to his FIFA 20 Shapeshifters card. He’s been bumped up to a 95 rating, with some ridiculous number for a box-to-box midfielder.
Stats of 96 passing and 93 dribbling mean he has bags of creativity, so you’ll want him to make those marauding forward runs into the final third. His finishing isn’t the strongest at 83, but 99 shot power and 94 long shots make him a menace from outside the box.
The Englishman can also hold his own defensively, with 93 awareness and high tackling stats. Even this late in the game, Flashback Alexander-Arnold is one of the most complete midfielders in FIFA 22.
FIFA 22 Flashback Alexander-Arnold SBC requirements & solutions
There are three separate squads to submit for Flashback Alexander Arnold, clocking in at around 500,000 coins according to FUTBIN. It’s a little on the pricey side, but when you take into account the card’s stats as well as the valuable Chemistry links it offers, it’s more than worth it.
Check out all of the requirements along with the cheapest possible solution below:
- # of players from England: Min 1
- Squad Rating: Min 86
- Team Chemistry: Min 60
- Reward: Small Prime Gold Players Pack
Premier League requirements
- # of players from Premier League: Min 1
- Squad Rating: Min 87
- Team Chemistry: Min 55
- Reward: Rare Mixed Players Pack
Top Form requirements
- # of TOTW or TOTS players: Min 1
- Squad Rating: Min 88
- Team Chemistry: Min 45
- Reward: Prime Gold Players Pack
Flashback Alexander Arnold will be available in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team until Saturday, July 9. This doesn’t give players too long to gather the coins, but choosing a hood fodder pack from Summer Swaps could help soften the blow.
There are plenty of options in midfield if you’re running a Premier League squad, but Trent might just be the best all-round player the league has to offer. If he fits your squad, it’s a no-brainer.

How to do Griddy celebration in FIFA 23
The popular Griddy celebration is in FIFA 23 and here’s everything you need to know about how to perform this viral dance.
The FIFA 23 developers have added the viral dance known as the “Griddy” for players to perform in the game, and here’s how you can get this done.
Now, developer Electronic Arts have added the “Griddy” dance as a new celebration that you can trigger after scoring a goal in the game. We’ll go over exactly how to perform the viral dance.
How to perform the Griddy celebration in FIFA 23
After you’ve scored a goal, you’ll need to hold down R2/RT and flick the right control stick upwards twice in order to perform the Griddy celebration in FIFA 23. Your player will then start tapping his heels while swinging his arms back and forth.
The Griddy dance is named after its creator Allen ‘Griddy’ Davis and became a viral sensation after popular celebrities like LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase and Viking’s number 18 Justin Jefferson brought it to the NFL.
Since then, numerous players have performed the dance, and its intense popularity has led to the Griddy also being added to video games like Fortnite and Madden. Now, it’s available for you to try out in FIFA 23.
Now that you know how to perform the Griddy in FIFA 23, be sure to try it out if you feel like celebrating a particularly challenging goal. It may take a few tries to input the correct button combo, but you’ll be able to get it done in no time.
You can try performing it in the closed beta before the game is officially released on September 30, 2022. We’ll keep you posted about any other new additions to FIFA 23 as soon as they’re confirmed.

FIFA 23: Release date, crossplay, new features, more
FIFA 23 is right around the corner, and EA have prepared a ton of new content for players to enjoy so here’s everything you need to know.
FIFA 23 release date is fast approaching, and football fans are eager to discover what EA has in store for them this year. Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23.
FIFA 23 will be EA Sports’ final football game with the FIFA branding as they get set to introduce EA Sports FC to the world next year.
Therefore, expectations for FIFA 23 are high and after EA showcased the new features and additions that await players across Career Mode, Ultimate Team, and Pro Clubs, there’s clearly a look to look forward to.
We’ll break down every new feature coming to FIFA 23 as well as the official release date, to best prepare you for an expansive final chapter.
- Will FIFA 23 have crossplay?
- World Cup content in FIFA 23
- FIFA 23 new & removed clubs
- FIFA 23 Ultimate Team new and improved features
- FIFA 23 gameplay changes
Will FIFA 23 have crossplay?
FIFA 23 will have a crossplay feature for certain modes at launch. Crossplay in FIFA 23 will be limited to 1vs1 modes when the game releases. This will mainly impact Ultimate Team gameplay as players on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC will face each other. Meanwhile, PS4 and Xbox One users will also match up against each other
This also means that a massive amount of players will be sharing one FUT market in FIFA. To find out more about changes to the market, you can read our article explaining how the Ultimate Team market will function in FIFA 23.
Unfortunately, EA confirmed that there would be no crossplay feature for the Pro Clubs mode. This infuriated players, and after a ton of backlash from the FIFA community, EA hinted that the feature could make its way to Pro Clubs post-launch.
FIFA 23 Ultimate Team new features
FIFA 23 Ultimate Team fans are in for some major changes. For starters, position modifiers as we know them will be removed from the game.
Instead, players will have secondary positions that mirror their real-life position changes. For example, Kyler Walker would be able to operate on full chemistry at RB or CB.
Another major change set to hit the Ultimate Team mode is FIFA 23’s brand-new chemistry system. Chemistry lines across your squad are a thing of the past in FIFA 23. You’ll know have more freedom to build your squad with a less restrictive chemistry system.
This system will factor in nations, leagues, and clubs across the entire pitch in order to give players a chemistry rating between 0-3. Proximity is no longer a factor as Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold produce chemistry from RB to LB.
Check out our guide on Ultimate Team’s new game mode called FUT Moments for a look at what to expect in FIFA 23.
FIFA 23 World Cup modes
The World Cup mode added to FIFA 18 was a massive hit among players, and the community has been urging EA to revisit the feature for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
While we currently don’t know how many game modes will feature World Cup content, EA did confirm that there will be some involvement via the Ultimate Team mode.
It’s understood that both the men’s and women’s versions of the World Cup will be celebrated in FIFA 23, but we’ll have to wait and see what they have in store for players.
Given that the men’s tournament takes place in the winter of 2022 this time around, and the women’s edition is in the summer of 2023, EA would have plenty of time to give both footballing festivals the proper treatment.
FIFA 23 new & removed clubs
Due to licensing agreements, it’s not unusual to see clubs and leagues join and depart the FIFA franchise with every new release. Lately, certain Serie A licenses have been difficult to come by with notable clubs Juventus, Lazio, and Atalanta missing from the game.
EA confirmed that Juventus will be returning to FIFA this year in full capacity, with Claudio Marchisio leading the charge as a FUT Hero item available to Ultimate Team players.
While one partnership seems to be reignited, another one is set to end in FIFA 23 as reports claim that the J-League will be removed from the game. If reports are true, this would mark the end of a 6-year partnership between the Japanese League and EA Sports.
With a ton of different licenses to take note of, it could be difficult to keep track of which teams, leagues, and stadiums will be involved in FIFA 23, but we’ve made a guide to help you out.
FIFA 23 gameplay changes
In addition to changes to the Pro Clubs and Career Mode offerings in FIFA 23, EA were also excited to announce several gameplay changes. These changes are meant to freshen up the way the game feels on the pitch.
For starters, set pieces have undergone an overhaul in FIFA 23, with penalties receiving a simplified mechanic. Set pieces also include free kicks and corners, which you’ll have to learn how to master once more this year.
One of the most entertaining ways to flex your FIFA prowess is through skill moves, and in FIFA 23 there will be more to master than ever before. You can check out our guide to discover all of the gameplay changes being introduced in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team: Chemistry changes, position overhaul, FUT Moments, more
FIFA 23 is introducing a ton of new features and changes to the fan favorite Ultimate Team game mode, so here’s what to expect.
FIFA 23 is fast approaching and with the Ultimate Team mode set to attract football fans around the world once more, here’s a look at the new features that will make their way to FUT.
Ultimate Team will continue to be the main attraction of the FIFA franchise as players look forward to the release of FIFA 23. Expectations for FIFA 23 are high as the final game before the long-standing partnership between EA and FIFA comes to a close.
The Ultimate Team mode will once again deliver a ton of content for players to discover including Icons and FUT Heroes. However, EA confirmed that there’s plenty of innovation on the way that is set to shake up the Ultimate Team game mode.
Here’s what you need to know about the new Ultimate Team features in FIFA 23.
- FIFA 23 Ultimate Team chemistry changes
- FIFA 23 Ultimate Team position overhaul
- FUT Moments FIFA 23
- World Cup Ultimate Team content in FIFA 23
FIFA 23 Ultimate Team chemistry changes
Building the ideal Ultimate Team squad has always revolved around linking players through the mode’s chemistry system. For years, players who share the same Nationality, Club, and or League always produced the best chemistry results.
Players can now link across the entire pitch. This means that your LB and RB can build chemistry with each other, as well as your GK and ST. For example, Mbappe will create chemistry with Marquinhos within the same squad.
Players have three diamonds next to their items that represent their personal chemistry, with a panel on the left side of your screen that will help you adjust the team’s chemistry.
FIFA 23 Ultimate Team position overhaul
If the changes to chemistry weren’t enough to get you excited, EA also delivered a complete overhaul to how positioning works in Ultimate Team.
In FIFA 22, players could change position by following a linear path. For example, RWs could swap to RMs to better suit your desired formation. However, players have long been asking for a change to positioning to make it feel more authentic.
Position changes in FIFA 23 will be based on real-life player positions. If a player has experience playing in multiple positions, a position modifier card will allow them to show their versatility. Players can have up to three alternate positions.
Two great examples of this new feature happen to be Manchester City defenders Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker. Cancelo’s secondary position would be at RB while Walker’s would be at CB. Previously, switching a LB to RB and a RB to CB were two position changes that were impossible to execute in Ultimate Team.
FUT Moments FIFA 23
FUT Moments is a new Ultimate Team game mode that will give players an extra objective to work towards in FIFA 23. Players will be able to complete a series of short scenarios based on real-life players, teams, and matches of the past.
You’ll be asked to score a specific type of game-winning goal or complete a certain number of passes within a time limit. These single-player challenges are meant to be a separate offering from what Ultimate Team fans are used to.
There will also be rewards attached to completing FUT Moments challenges. Ultimate Team players will use stars earned from completing FUT Moments challenges as the currency to redeem rewards.
World Cup Ultimate Team content in FIFA 23
During their Ultimate Team reveal, EA were purposely coy when discussing World Cup features. EA confirmed that “we’re going to have the World Cup in FUT this year.” However, aside from that brief statement, they did not reveal any details.
In 2018, a special World Cup Ultimate Team add-on made its way to the game where players could build new squads from scratch using World Cup cards.
We’ll have to wait and see what EA have planned for the Qatar World Cup in 2022, but given that this tournament will take place in the winter, players won’t have to wait long after release to check out this new content.
