FIFA 22 best Goalkeepers: The best GKs in FIFA 22 listed

At the very top, the goalkeeper rankings have remained the same - with Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak staying put with a 91 ranking. However below that, the top five has seen a shuffle, with last year's number four Neuer now in second, Marc Andre Ter Stegen dropping a place to third and last year's third place goalkeeper Alisson now in fifth.

Perhaps the biggest change is Gianluigi Donnarumma - placed 13th last year with an 85 ranking, and is now in fourth after climbing to 89.

Other things to know about picking the best FIFA Goalkeeper

As we alluded to above, there are a few additional things to bear in mind when choosing your goalkeeper in FIFA 22, with slightly different factors becoming more or less important depending on the mode you're playing.

It's a shame goalkeepers aren't actually this big as it would be easier to keep clean sheets.
  • For Career Mode, potential is important too - Some players have higher built-in potential for growth than others, and if you're planning on playing at least two seasons of Career Mode then it's going to have a major impact on your squad. It's also a great way to pick up a bargain, too.
  • For Ultimate Team, remember you can use Chemistry Styles - Chemistry Styles, if you didn't know, add up to a whopping 90 points to your player's attributes, spread according to the Style you choose. For Goalkeepers, the Cat and Glove styles are the most popular, but you can read more on Chemistry in general in our guide to how FIFA Chemistry works, and likewise the best FIFA Chemistry Styles in our detailed guide to those, too.
  • Think about your style of play when looking at stats - We mentioned this briefly above, but certain keepers will work better in certain situations.
