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.
