Wed 27 October 2021 | 17:30

Who are the best shot-stoppers in FIFA 22? How much do you need to spend on acquiring the top goalkeepers in the game? Follow us below as we take a look at some of the best FIFA 22 goalkeepers and their overall stats.

We are finally able to see what Electronic Arts have done with their new edition of football simulation game series we all love and adore so much. There has been much talk about the game’s technical difficulties and graphical improvements compared to its predecessor. But while some hardcore gamers debate over such details, many of us just want to build the strongest squad and crush our opponents both in Career Mode and in FIFA Ultimate Team.

Having a world-class striker is certainly one of the main goals of any FIFA player as you can’t win a game if you can’t score goals. But while strikers and wingers get most of the attention, there is one particular position that is often neglected, even though so much depends on the quality of the player that is deployed on that position. You already know which position we are talking about since we are about to take a look at the

best FIFA 22 goalkeepers

after all.

Having a solid shot stopper is as vital for any team as having a lethal goal scorer. You can’t expect your strikers to score goals left and right, which is why so much depends on the quality of your goalkeeper.

There are a lot of goalkeepers present amongst the best FIFA 22 players and you can definitely get your hands on some sweet FIFA cards for quite bargain prices. If you too are eager to find out more about some of the best FIFA 22 goalkeepers, then read on as we provide all the information you might need on these brilliant players that guard the goal line.

Best FIFA 22 players – Goalkeepers

From the likes of Jan Oblak, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Thibaut Courtois competing for the Lev Yashin trophy every season from La Liga, to Manuel Neuer in Bundesliga still teaching every goalkeeper a lesson in goalkeeping and Keylor Navas enjoying his time in Ligue 1, there are many world-class keepers who have made it to the list of

best FIFA 22 goalkeepers

. So without further ado, here are 15 of the highest-rated keepers that you can add to your squad in the latest edition of FIFA.

Yann Sommer

  • Overall: 85

  • Price: 3,000 – 4,000

The goalkeeper we all came to love and idolize during Euro 2020 is also one of the

best FIFA 22 goalkeepers

thanks to his 85 overall rating. Yann Sommer impressed us all with his heroics in the Euros as he single-handedly kept Switzerland in the title race for as long as he could. Saving penalties and incredibly powerful shots from up close and from distance, Sommer showed us how vital a keeper can be if the rest of the team does not live up to the expectations.

The 32-year-old is not only a great goalkeeper but also a bargain one as he will set you back only about 3,000 coins on FIFA Ultimate Team. You can also sign the Switzerland international on Career Mode for a relatively lower price if you aim to improve a weaker side in the game. Contrary to all the attributes and stats that people look for in strikers and midfielders, goalkeepers don’t possess such high stats when it comes to pace or shooting.

Of course these players have their own unique sets of skills and stats, which includes diving, handling, kicking, positioning and reflexes. Sommer enjoys a fine overall stat as he boasts an 86-rated reflex and positioning. These two, combined with his 79-rated diving, can prove effective in deflecting shots and sudden attempts on goal with speed and precision. The former

Basel

goalkeeper is 183cm (6’0”) tall and can reach impossible spots on goal, which will prove useful against adept free-kick takers who like to aim for the top bin.

Peter Gulacsi

  • Overall: 85

  • Price: 2,000 – 4,000

Peter Gulacsi is without a doubt one of the main reasons behind

RB Leipzig

’s recent success in Bundesliga. The Hungary international has been an avid shot-stopper for more than a decade now, which is why he is named amongst the best FIFA 22 goalkeepers. He began his career as a professional footballer at Liverpool, but failed to make an impact as he never got to make an appearance for the Reds.

Of course the tides turned in Gluacsi’s favor when he joined Red Bull Salzburg in 2013, after which he moved to the club’s sister side RB Leipzig in 2015. If Yan Sommer is not fast enough and can’t dive long enough, then we suggest you sign his Hungarian counterpart instead as he enjoys a higher diving rating and a better handling overall as well.

The 191cm (6’3”) tall keeper is certainly a bargain on FIFA 22 as you can sign him for less than 4,000 coins, which is an absolute steal if you compare his price tag to that of other goalkeepers with slightly higher stats.

Kasper Schmeichel

  • Overall: 85

  • Price: 2,000 – 4,000

Who would have thought that the great Peter Schmeichel’s son would one day go on to have his own legacy? Well, that is exactly what Kasper Schmeichel has achieved with

Leicester City

, whom he helped miraculously win the Premier League against all odds. Since then, the Denmark international has proven to be one of the top keepers in the English top-flight and currently has one of the highest FIFA 22 player ratings.

The 33-year-old enjoys an overall of 85 and is as quick as a goalkeeper can get. With an overall reflex rating of 90, Schmeichel is able to react to the opposition players’ moves with great efficiency, which will certainly come in handy in close-quarter encounters and rebounds. The former Leeds United man is without a doubt one of the bargain players on the new edition of FIFA as his card is being auctioned off at around the average of 3,000 coins.

Koen Casteels

  • Overall: 86

  • Price: 5,000 – 7,000

As a Hoffenheim youth product, Koen Casteels has been one of the best goalkeepers in Germany and has proven himself to be amongst the most efficient ones in the league since joining

VfL Wolfsburg

in 2015. The Belgian goalkeeper, who was once teammates with Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois, has now gotten an overall rating of 86 in FIFA 22 and is quite a bargain for those who don’t have the means to purchase other world-class keepers.

Thanks to his 85 diving and 83 handling, Casteels is the optimal choice for warding off strong shots from long range as he can stretch pretty far on the goal line. The 28-year-old is a giant of a goalkeeper as his height stands at 197cm (6’6”).

With such a tall keeper guarding your goal, you won’t have to worry about top-bins and whatnots as this goliath can easily reach these difficult spots in the game. Considering the fact that Casteels has one of the highest

FIFA 22 player ratings

amongst goalkeepers, his average price in the game makes him quite a cheap option who can deliver incredible performances.

Samir Handanovic

  • Overall: 86

  • Price: 5,000 – 6,000

If you are looking for one of the main reasons behind

Inter

’s success last season, then look no further as Samir Handanovic is the one you are looking for. The Slovenian is one of the finest goalkeeping talents that his nation has produced over the years and he is quite adept at keeping the ball out of his net.

With an impressive reflex rating of 87 and an incredible positioning rating of 92, few strikers can manage to surprise this beast of a goalkeeper as he is able to use his lightning-fast reactions to outsmart the opposition forwards. Even though he might not be as tall as Koen Casteels, Handanovic is still quite darn tall and can easily reach the far corners.

Hugo Lloris

  • Overall: 87

  • Price: 12,000 – 15,000

Tottenham

would have never reached the Champions League final in 2018-19 if it weren’t for their incredible goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. The Frenchman is an absolute gem of a keeper and has been a pivotal part of Tottenham for quite some years. The 34-year-old France international joined the Premier League club from Lyon in 2012 and has since proven to be one of the top goalkeepers in the English top-flight.

Being one of the best FIFA 22 goalkeepers, you can certainly make good use of his impressive reflexes and diving ability to quickly react to the opposition forwards. Of course his price in the game might be a little higher than what we talked about so far as the previous keepers were a lot more accessible than Lloris. However, paying around the ballpark figure of 13,000 coins for such a world-class keeper is still a bargain considering the price tag on some of the other best FIFA 22 goalkeepers.

Wojciech Szczesny

  • Overall: 87

  • Price: 8,000 – 11,000

You must be one darn good keeper to claim that you are in fact the best in the world if you have managed to bench the likes of Gigi Buffon. That is what Poland international Wojciech Szczesny has claimed before as he believes he is the best goalkeeper in the world.

While that might be a stretch for many, the

Juventus

man is without a doubt one of the best FIFA 22 goalkeepers thanks to his 87 overall rating. The “Piemonte Calcio” keeper enjoys quite a balanced and fine overall stats as he boasts a phenomenal 88 reflex and 87 positioning. The former Arsenal man is by far one of the best in the world and is quite capable of keeping your goal safe from goal poachers.  

Keylor Navas

  • Overall: 88

  • Price: 12,000 – 16,000

Who can you name if we were to ask you about the goalkeepers who have managed to win three consecutive Champions League trophies? The only answer that would come to mind is Keylor Navas, who helped Los Blancos make history by consecutively winning the UCL on three occasions under the management of Zinedine Zidane.

Since those glorious days, Navas has joined

Paris Saint-Germain

and is enjoying life as one of the main keepers at the Parisian club. Despite Gianluigi Donnarumma’s arrival over the summer of 2021, the Costa Rica international is still one of Pochettino’s main choices to guard their goal.

The former

Real Madrid

man is currently rated at 88 and is one of the quickest and most agile keepers in the entire game. Navas has one of the highest FIFA 22 player ratings amongst goalkeepers and will cause your opponents a lot of pain whenever they try to score a goal against you.

Ederson

  • Overall: 89

  • Price: 28,000 - 31,000

Manchester City

have spent well over a million Euros on signing world-class players over the past couple of years and Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson is one of those incredible signings. The 28-year-old has been one of the best goalkeepers of the Premier League since joining City in 2017, having made more than 200 appearances for the English club.

The former Benfica man boasts a phenomenal 89 overall rating and enjoys quite an incredible kicking stat. Of course you should only consider acquiring this player if you have the means to spend well over 28,000 coins. Ederson has made a total of 320 appearances throughout his career and has managed to keep a clean sheet in half of his appearances across all competitions.

Thibaut Courtois

  • Overall: 89

  • Price: 25,000 – 27,000

Thibaut Courtois has by far been one of the best and most vital parts of Real Madrid over the few seasons that he has played for Los Blancos. Even though his first season was nothing more than a disaster, the Belgian keeper has managed to turn himself into an impenetrable wall on the goal line. That is exactly why he has received an overall rating of 89 in FIFA 22 and is one of the best goalkeepers in the latest edition of the football simulation game.

Courtois’ remarkable height will certainly be of good use for any FIFA player as you can sit back and enjoy the former Chelsea shot-stopper’s world-class performance game-in game-out. You can get your hands on the Belgium international’s FIFA 22 card for an average price of 25,000 coins.

Alisson

  • Overall: 89

  • Price: 47,000 – 50,000

Manchester City and

Liverpool

have formed a new rivalry in recent seasons and it has given way to some extraordinary moments throughout the years. Not only do the clubs clash with each other for the top spot in the league, but the players also have their own rivalries as to see which side is better than the other. One particular Brazilian goalkeepers Alisson and Ederson are definitely one of the main subjects of any debate over the two teams as both are exemplary keepers who actually know what they’re doing.

While Ederson has solidified City’s goal in recent years, Alisson has done the same for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp, which has earned him several individual awards, including the 2019 Best FIFA Goalkeeper and the 2018 Premier League Golden Glove. He has also won the Yashine Trophy in 2019 and is currently one of the best keepers in FIFA 22 thanks to his incredible 89 rating.

Even though the former

AS Roma

shot-stopper does not have a 90+ overall rating in the game, he is still one of the most effective ones throughout the series. The Brazil international owes his efficiency to his impressive 90 positioning as it allows him to find the best spot to deflect or save any oncoming attempts.

FIFA 22 release date

was on the first day of October 2021 and since then many Liverpool fans have been trying to get their hands on Alisson’s card for their squad as they try to build an exact replica of the Reds in their favorite videogame.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

  • Overall: 89

  • Price: 60,000 – 73,000

Winning the Euros for his nation by saving several penalties in the final and joining one of the most star-studded teams in the entire world was certainly more than enough to earn Gianluigi Donnarumma a massive 5-point upgrade in FIFA 22. The Italian goalkeeper is without a doubt one of the most exciting prospects in the entire world and is on the verge of becoming a regular part of Italy’s football history thanks to his vital role in Euro 2020. Many believe that Donnarumma is the true successor of Gianluigi Buffon and we agree.

Even though there is still a long way to go for the Italy international as he currently has an 89 overall rating, he is by far the most expensive keeper in the game with a whopping average price tag of 65,000 coins. The 22-year-old’s phenomenal 91 diving and 90 reflexes are the main reason behind his incredible performances.

Of course his kicking stat is a long way away from being considered world-class in any way. Donnarumma is certainly not the best option for you in any way if you need your coins to improve other departments in your squad as well, which is why you should opt to sign one of the other options on this list instead.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen

  • Overall: 90

  • Price: 28,000 – 30,000

Barcelona

would have been in a much deeper trouble in recent seasons if it weren’t for the heroics of Marc-Andre ter Stegen. The German goalkeeper has been one of the greatest players at the Catalan club and has played a huge part in their success as well. Even though the entire team is suffering from a lack of world-class goal scorers after Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi’s departure, ter Stegen is enjoying himself with his impressive performances week-in week-out.

These performances have earned the former Borussia Monchengladbach keeper an overall rating of 90 in EA’s latest edition of FIFA, which has in turn made him one of the top-3 goalkeepers in the entire game. The German keeper is especially adept at showing lightning-fast reflexes thanks to his 90-rated reflexes.

While he is not as tall as some of the other keepers on this list, the Barcelona man is more than capable of reaching those difficult corner spots and even has a better chance of deflecting close-distance attempts thanks to the added agility that comes with a relatively shorter height. Of course that doesn’t mean that ter Stegen is in any way short as he stands tall with a 187cm (6’2”) height.

Manuel Neuer

  • Overall: 90

  • Price: 38,000 – 42,000

Since the very first days after the FIFA 22 release date, people have been putting a lot of effort into getting their hands on a certain FIFA card and that card is for a player named Manuel Neuer. The 2014 World Cup champion needs no introduction as he has been at the pinnacle of football for several years now. He single-handedly kept

Bayern Munich

’s goal safe for most games in 2019 and helped his team win the historic sextuple.

Neuer is so good that not even Barcelona’s ter Stegen has managed to replace him as the main goalkeeper of the Germany national team. The 35-year-old is one of the few 90-rated players at this age and doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon.

The former Schalke man enjoys incredible stats in almost all departments and is able to use his strength and speed to act as a sweeper-keeper, which certainly makes the job easier for Bayern Munich’s defenders. You too can deploy the German goalkeeper in such a role and push forward with most of your outfield players.

Jan Oblak

  • Overall: 91

  • Price: 36,000 – 40,000

It certainly takes a lot to be the best at something and Jan Oblak has absolutely got what it takes to be the greatest goalkeeper in FIFA 22. While there could be a lot of debate over who the best keeper in the world is, there is no denying the fact that the Slovenia international has the highest overall rating amongst goalkeepers.

With an overall rating of 91, the

Atletico Madrid

shot-stopper is a must-have for anyone who wants to avoid getting headaches over conceding silly goals. Not only is Oblak the best keeper in FIFA 22, but he is also priced quite reasonably as his price tag suggests that a ballpark figure of 37,000 coins could be enough to acquire his FIFA card on auction.
