FIFA 23 best goalkeepers

The best goalkeeper in FIFA 23 is Thibaut Courtois, who has an overall rating of 90. That’s a huge leap from the previous game, with EA clearly showing recognition to the shot-stopper for his impressive run of saves over the past year. The renowned clean sheet against Liverpool in the Champions League final back in May, for which he won Man of the Match, is also still fresh in everyone's memory, making Courtois an obvious pick for the top spot. This also puts him in the top 10 on our list of the best players in FIFA 23.

While Thibaut Courtois ranks as the best goalkeeper in FIFA 23 overall after an incredible season, he only takes the top spot for one stat with a score of 90 in reflexes. PSG goalie Donnarumma has the best goalkeeper diving score in FIFA 23, while Manchester City's Ederson has the best goalkeeper kick. Jan Oblak is the best for handling, which means he can easily sweep up the ball and keep a firm grip after lunging for an outstretched catch. Regardless of their individual proficiencies, all of the goakeepers featured on this list will do a good job at preventing goals from even the best strikers in FIFA 23.

Of course, goalkeepers aren't the only part of a good defense. You'll also need some of the best defenders and best midfielders in FIFA 23, as they'll provide invaluable support for your goalie and ensure that the ball rarely gets into a dangerous position.
