Manuel Neuer - 90

He might have been around for a long time now, but Neuer is still amongst the top two goalkeepers in the world according to FIFA 23’s ratings.

The Bayern stopper keeps his 90 rating from last year’s game after winning yet another Bundesliga title with Bayern. He will, as ever, be tough to get past for anyone facing the German giants on FIFA 23.

Thibaut Courtois - 90

Courtois proved his immense value to Real Madrid last season with a match-winning display in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

The rangy Belgian has had a rating increase from 89 to 90 in FIFA 23, so frustrated players of this year’s edition will be denied even more often by one of his remarkably long limbs.

Ederson - 89

Manchester City’s Brazilian No.1 is level with compatriot Alisson, maintaining his ranking after another exceptional Premier League season.

Ederson’s distribution is unmatched by any goalkeeper in the world and proved instrumental as Pep Guardiola's men won their fourth top-flight title in five seasons. 

Alisson - 89

Many would argue that Alisson is the best in the world, but Liverpool’s goalkeeper will have to settle for an 89 rating for the second year running.

Quite what prevents him reaching the heights of Courtois and Neuer isn’t clear. That’ll be a matter for EA to address when, no doubt, some unimpressed Liverpool fans ask the question.

Jan Oblak - 89

Oblak was the best keeper in FIFA 22 with a rating of 91, but he has been significantly demoted for this year’s edition.

The Atletico Madrid keeper has likely been docked the two rating points as a result of his team’s decline, from winners of LaLiga to an unconvincing third-place finish last season and a disappointing Champions League campaign.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen - 88

Ter Stegen, like Oblak, has dropped off in FIFA 23, rated at 88 compared to last year’s 90.

The Germany international is still a key man for Barcelona, providing a calming, reliable presence behind a much-changed back four.

Keylor Navas - 88

Despite losing the No.1 spot at Paris Saint-Germain to the equally excellent but significantly younger Gianluigi Donnarumma, Navas remains very highly rated in FIFA 23.

The Ligue 1 champions are spoilt for choice between the sticks.

Gianluigi Donnarumma - 88

The Italian international might be disappointed that his FIFA ranking isn't ahead of team-mate Navas, but it shouldn’t be forgotten that he is still only 23.

By the time he reaches his peak years, Donnarumma will surely be at the very top of lists like this.

Hugo Lloris - 87

Tottenham’s flying Frenchman makes it into the top ten after another typically dependable season.

Lloris may not have the physical presence of the likes of Neuer and Alisson, but as shot stoppers go, few are better.

David de Gea - 87*

De Gea's position as Manchester United's first-choice goalkeeper looked seriously under threat from Dean Henderson in 2020/21, but the Spaniard kept himself ahead in the pecking order, playing all 38 Premier League games last season, meaning his FIFA rating has risen from 84. 

*Mike Maignan is also rated 87
