Moving your goalkeeper is a great way to catch your opponent off guard in FIFA 22 and give your stopper a better chance of making a save. Here’s how and when to make use of this trick in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

While building your Ultimate Team squad up of top-rated players and special cards is key for FUT success, it doesn’t hurt to know some little hints and tricks to give you an edge.

Moving your goalkeeper is a relatively simple technique that can catch out opposing strikers and help preserve your precious clean sheet.

Here’s our simple guide on how to move your keeper in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and when it is most effective.

How to move your goalkeeper in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

Alisson Becker in FIFA 22

To move your goalkeeper in FIFA 22, press and hold in the R3 button on the right analog stick of your controller and push in the direction you want the goalkeeper to move.

Using the triangle / Y button you can call the keeper to come and collect the ball, but using R3 allows the player to subtly change their position without them rushing out of the goal.

Once you release R3, the goalkeeper will automatically return to the position they would normally take up depending on the situation.

It’s worth noting that this control is available in every game mode, but AI teams react far quicker to the position change and will often punish the move.

When to move your goalkeeper in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team

There are two main scenarios where moving your goalkeeper is most effective, from one-on-ones and from corners.

When your opponent is bearing down on goal with their striker, shifting your keeper’s position at the last second can catch them out and cause them to hit the ball straight into his arms.

The key here is predicting which side of the net the attacker will aim for – if you think they will go for the far post then move your goalie over there just before they shoot. The same applies if you think they are going to drill it to the near post.

You’ll want to delay the move until the last possible second, otherwise they may react to what you’ve done and slot it in the other corner that is left exposed.

From corners, dragging your goalkeeper off his line and out towards the penalty spot will drastically reduce the number of headers you let in.

FIFA 22 keepers are ruthless when coming out to catch crosses, so giving them a headstart means they will come and claim nearly every corner will little fuss.

This leaves your opponent with two options – try and whip a perfect corner to the back post or play it short.

Both of these will give your keeper plenty of time to retreat back to the safety of his goal-line – making this a far less risky tactic than in one-on-ones.


That was our easy guide on how to move your goalkeeper in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, be sure to keep this sneaky trick in mind the next time you take on Division Rivals or FUT Champions.

Volland has transformed from a lethal striker into a brick wall of a defender during the Shapeshifters promo. His Defending stats including Standing Tackle and Interceptions are all within the 90s.

Pace is not an issue for Volland as he maintains his speed as an attacker now playing in a defensive role. Volland will no doubt feel like an incredibly smooth CB on the ball thanks to his impressive Dribbling stats that include 85 Ball Control, 95 Composure, and 89 Balance.

FIFA 23 Premier League ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Premier League is set to host some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Premier League ratings

The Premier League will be home to some of FIFA 23’s brightest stars, with players from the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool set to dominate Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Premier League ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each and every year, EA updates its roster of players with new ratings based on how they performed in the previous season, and FIFA 23 is no exception. The 2021/22 campaign saw some exceptional performances, which will no doubt be reflected in the FIFA 23 ratings.

One of the biggest leagues to feature in FIFA 23 is the Premier League. Whether you’re building your dream Ultimate Team or embarking on a Career Mode, the English top-flight is likely to play a part.

But who will be the best players in the Premier League? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Premier League players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Kevin De BruyneManchester City91

Mohamed SalahLiverpool+190
Heung Min-SonSpurs+190
Harry KaneSpurs90
Alison BeckerLiverpool+190
EdersonManchester City+190
Erling HaalandManchester City+290
Virgil Van DijkLiverpool89
Trent Alexander-ArnoldLiverpool+288

After they two fought tooth and nail for all three domestic trophies last season, we’re expecting Manchester City and Liverpool to dominate the ratings in FIFA 23.

After winning Premier League Player of the Season, Kevin De Bruyne will likely keep his lofty 91 rating, sharing the top spot with Cristiano Ronaldo, who also enjoyed a great individual season in a struggling United team.

We’ve listed Erling Haaland as one of the highest climbers, who should receive a large bump after his high-profile move to City. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also expected to be rewarded after his best season to date, managing 12 assists from right back.

Heung Min-Son also registered his most prolific year in the Premier League so far, finishing as the joint-top goalscorer. This should be enough to see him move up a rating and join the coveted 90 club.

FIFA 23 Premier League rating predictions: Every team’s best players

While most clubs won’t have a shot of landing a player in the top 10, it’s still interesting to see how EA upgrades and downgrades stars from across the league. Every team had both standouts and flops that should be reflected when FIFA 23 rolls around.

With this in mind, we’ve made our predictions for every Premier League club’s top three players in FIFA 23:

Shapeshifters FIFA 22 promo

The Shapeshifters promo last seen in FIFA 20 has made its way to FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team mode following the Team of the Season.

Team of the Season is certainly one of the most popular promos of the year, but it surely isn’t the final promo for FIFA 22 players to enjoy. Luckily, there are still a few Ultimate Team promos to look forward to and Shapeshifters is one of them.

The Shapeshifters promo was a fan-favorite promo in FIFA 20, and after not featuring in FIFA 21, it has made a return to Ultimate Team in FIFA 22.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Shapeshifters promo including the release date, Team 1 players, Team 2 players, and Team 3 leaks.

Following confirmation from EA, Team 1 of the Shapeshifters promo arrived on Friday, June 17 after the conclusion of TOTS. Team 2 hit Ultimate Team one week later on Friday, June 24.

A loading screen has also confirmed the rumor that Team 3 will make its way to FIFA 22 on July 1.

With exciting new content to enjoy, you’ll want to log into FIFA when the new cards make their way to Ultimate Team at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM UK.

Ultimate Team Shapeshifters explained

Shapeshifters cards FIFA 22

The Shapeshifters promo is a fan favorite due to its unique tendency to have top players in unconventional positions. This promo takes players out of their standard position and allows you to build a squad with more options at your disposal.

This drastic change opens the door to new squad-building possibilities. These special cards received rating boosts, SM/WF upgrades, and position changes, which makes Shapeshifters a top-tier promo.

Throughout the Shapeshifters promo, players will be able to earn Summer Swaps Tokens that they can later exchange for valuable rewards. Summer Swaps Tokens rewards include Shapeshifters Kimpembe and several Shapeshifters player picks.

FIFA 22 Shapeshifters Team 1

TOTS was always going to be a difficult act to follow, but EA have certainly delivered an incredible promo with some stellar players on offer. Lionel Messi, Heung Min Son, and Youcef Atal will be highly sought-after players.

  • Alphonso Davies – LB ST
  • Lionel Messi – RW CF
  • Youcef Atal – RB CM
  • Heung Min Son – LM ST
  • Eden Hazard – LW CAM
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – ST LW
  • Leonardo Spinazzola – LWB CDM
  • Pierre Kalulu – RB CB
  • Jeremiah St. Juste – CB RW
  • Héctor Bellerín – RB LB
  • Nordi Mukiele – RWB CB
  • Jack Grealish – LW CAM
  • Andrew Robertson – LB CDM
  • Everton – LM ST

Anderson and Carrasco are both available via SBC, while Thuram is expected to join them as an SBC reward throughout the promo.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg’s Gerhardt and Arsenal’s Pepe are available via Objective.

  • Yannick Carrasco – LM CAM or LM RW (SBC)
  • Felipe Anderson – LM RW (SBC)
  • Marcus Thuram – LM ST (SBC)
  • Samuel Grandsir – LM ST (OBJ)
  • Yannick Gerhardt – CM LWB (OBJ)
  • Nicolas Pepe – RM ST (OBJ)

FIFA 22 Shapeshifters Team 2

One look at the Shapeshifters Team 2 players and there is plenty of reason to be excited with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo included. It seems Ferland Mendy eludes Ultimate Team fans once again, but there’s always the next FIFA 22 promo to look forward to.

Take a look at the players involved in Shapeshifters Team 2:

  • Cristiano Ronaldo – ST LW
  • Marcelo – LB ST
  • Sergio Ramos – CB ST
  • Timo Werner – ST RF
  • Adama Traore – RW CF
  • Stephan El Shaarawy – LW CAM
  • Silas – RM CF
  • Jesus Corona – RM CM
  • Kieran Tierney – LB CB
  • Emre Can – CM CB
  • Roberto Pereyra – CM LWB
  • Thiago Mendes – CDM RB
  • Marko Arnautovic – ST CB
  • Daley Blind – CB CDM
  • Raphael Guerreiro – LB CM or RB (SBC)
  • Emerson – RB CM (OBJ)
  • Thomas Delaney – CDM CB (OBJ)
  • Hirving Lozano – RW ST (SBC)

Shapeshifters Team 2 is looking equally as strong as Team 1. Ultimate Team fans should be excited to receive a promo that includes Ronaldo and Messi so soon after TOTS. Marcelo and Ronaldo are the two most sought-after cards, but Ramos isn’t too far behind.

FIFA 22 Shapeshifters Team 3 FUT Hero leaks

According to FIFA leaker FutSheriff, Ultimate Team players will receive a Shapeshifters Team 3 and possibly even a Team 4. This is certainly not what FIFA players have come to expect from EA as Ultimate Team promos usually receive a maximum of two teams.

Sheriff also claims that Shapesfhiters Team 3 will be unique in that it will focus on FUT Hero players boasting position changes. The leaker mentioned that a Shapeshifters FUT Hero Solskjær is expected to make its way to the game via SBC.

Here’s a list of leaked FUT Hero players that could make their way to Ultimate Team when Team 3 releases on July 1:

  • David Ginola – LM ST
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – ST CAM / LW
  • Lars Ricken – CAM RB
  • Jurgen Kohler – CB CDM

We’ll keep this list updated as more players are leaked prior to release.
