Although EA FC 24 is home to over 19,000 licensed players, discovering the ideal goalkeeper to protect your net can be difficult. However, fear not, as we’ve undertaken the mission to help you unearth the best shot-stoppers across EA FC 24.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ve curated the seven best keepers in EA Sports FC 24. So, without further ado, let’s delve into the realm of these goalkeeping titans and uncover the guardians of your team’s success.

 

The Best Meta Goalkeepers In EA FC 24

Unfortunately, choosing the goalkeeper by rating is a flawed strategy in FIFA – or, as it’s called now, EA FC. Even the highest-rated goaltenders tend to make silly mistakes, which might be annoying during important matches. A more reliable approach would be to consider in-game experience, actual stats, and height to gauge their effectiveness.

That said, here are the best goaltenders in EA Sports FC 24.

 

1. Edwin Van Der Sar

Rating:88
Height: 197 cm | 6’6’’

Even though Edwin Van Der Sar got a -3 downgrade in EA FC, and now he has only an 88 rating, the Netherlands legend is the best goalkeeper in EA Sports FC 24. While Van Der Sar is 2 cm shorter than his main competitor, Thibaut Courtois, the Dutchman has insane goalkeeper intelligence and high Reflexes that can be boosted to 99 with Shield chemistry style.

 

2. Thibaut Courtois

Rating: 90
Height: 199 cm | 6’6’’

One of the highest-rated players, Thibaut Courtois, is also the best Rare Gold keeper in EA Sports FC 24. With a height of 2 meters, he dominates in Reflexes (93), Positioning (90), and Reactions (88). In addition, Courtois is from Real Madrid, so he can provide helpful links for La Liga.

 

3. Gianluigi Donnarumma

Rating: 87
Height: 196 cm | 6’5’’

If you liked the 99 FUTTIES card of Gianluigi Donnarumma in FIFA 23, there is good news. In the early stages of Ultimate Team, Donnarumma’s 87 Rare Gold card feels as strong as 99 in September. His best stats are Diving (90) and Reflexes (89), which can be improved further with chemistry styles.

 

4. Mike Maignan

Rating: 87
Height: 191 cm | 6’3’’

Mike Maignan is the perfect sample of how a balanced goalkeeper can improve the overall EA FC 24 experience. Although he didn’t get the upgrade this year, his stats were slightly improved. The player got +2 Kicking, which makes it feel in-game even better.

 

5. Alisson Becker

Rating: 89
Height: 193 cm | 6’4’’

Whether you are a Liverpool fan or not, Alisson Becker is one of the best goalkeepers in EA FC. He has perfect Positioning and Reflexes, which, in combination with his 193 cm height, make him a titan wall in your net.

 

6. Ederson

Rating: 88
Height: 188 cm | 6’2’’

While Ederson slightly loses compared to previous goalkeepers because of his shorter height, he has the best Kicking and Passing stats. His effectiveness can be further increased with the CAT chemistry style, which boosts his Positioning to 99 and Reflexes to 94.

 

7. Jan Oblak

Rating: 88
Height: 188 cm | 6’2’’

One of the greatest Slovenian footballers, Jan Oblak, deserves the place in our tier list as the top La Liga netminder. Jan has an 88 rating and well-rounded in-game stats. However, his height is only 188 cm, which may be a disadvantage for a tier S goalkeeper.

Even the highest-rated goaltenders tend to make dumb mistakes. Securing yourself a meta-keeper won’t solve the issue with defense, even though he can save you from conceding goals during Weekend League.

 

The Best Budget Goalkeepers In EA FC 24

If you haven’t pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition of EA FC 24 and you don’t have Coins for meta-keepers, here are some alternative options that offer excellent value for money:

Player OVR Height
Nick Pope 84 197 cm | 6’6’’
Mark Flekken 82 195 cm | 6’5’’
Robert Sanchéz 78 197 cm | 6’6’’
Alphonse Areola 80 195 cm | 6’5’’
Alban Lafont 78 196 cm | 6’5’’

These shot-stoppers don’t cost an arm and a leg, but they can be handy in the first weeks of EA FC release.

Note that goalkeepers are not expensive in the first few weeks, as players are focused on getting strong strikers and defenders. Even Thibaut Courtois, one of the best GKs so far, costs 50,000 Coins, which is a meager price for one of the best players in EA FC 24.

With that said, getting yourself a meta goalkeeper in the first weeks of your journey in Ultimate Team would be ideal, as it may be the key to your success in the Weekend League.

EA Sports FC 24 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, and Switch.
