Fans of FIFA 23’s Ultimate Team mode are going to want to examine which of the best goalkeepers will make their squad. Here are the best meta and cheap GKs in Ultimate Team.

Goalkeepers are often the most neglected piece of the Ultimate Team puzzle. FIFA 23 delivered a new chemistry system that doesn’t force you to link your GKs to your CBs.

This has opened new squad-building opportunities as players look to utilize Ultimate Team’s best goalkeepers. While strikers are responsible for scoring goals, and center-backs keep threats at bay, FIFA 23 goalkeepers are literally the last line of defense on the pitch.

Let’s take a look at the best goalkeepers in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

Thanks to HyperMotion 2 technology, EA Sports have improved the range of motions available to goalkeepers in FIFA 23. Their field of view now impacts their reaction time when attempting to stop a ball. In addition, GKs feel more intuitive and smooth on the pitch when coming out to claim balls.

Thanks to these changes, having a top-quality goalkeeper is more important than ever in FIFA 23’s Ultimate Team mode. Unlike other positions, since you have no control over the keeper yourself, the best options are the ones with the highest overall stats.

With this in mind, here are the best meta goalkeepers in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.
