Best Meta Strikers in FIFA 23 – Top 10 ST

Here are all of the best strikers in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team. These reliable finishers will net you the goals you need to win your matches!

Football is a team sport, but you can’t win games if you don’t score any goals. That’s why having some deadly strikers up front in FIFA 23 is so important.

Unlike past FIFA titles, there is a lot more than just pace to consider when choosing which strikers to have in your team. In fact, a lot of the meta strikers in FUT 23 have a good spread of stats, so they can do a bit of everything.

No matter what budget you have or which leagues and nations you’re basing your team around, we’ve got some top-tier strikers for you to use!

Top 10 Meta ST in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team

10. Luis Muriel

Luis Muriel is always one of the best cheap strikers in FIFA Ultimate Team and, of course, he’s still great in FUT 23. Pace, skills, strength, and finishing make him a great striker who can do it all!

9. Angel Correa

Correa is better than ever in FIFA 23. He’s extremely agile and good at dribbling but has a turn of pace, deadly finishing, and even a bit of strength too!

8. Memphis Depay

Depay is an all-round forward who can do everything and one of the few players with 5-star skill moves in FIFA 23. However, what sets him apart from the rest of the skillers is his 83 base strength.

7. Christopher Nkunku

Another forward with 5-star skills, Nkunku is such a complete player that he can be effective even as far back as CM. However, with 86 finishing to go with the speed and skill, you’ll probably want to play him up front!

He works extremely well in the overpowered 5-1-2-2 formation that pro players use as a striker who can drop deeper and link up play too!

6. Lautaro Martinez

The Argentine Lautaro Martinez is the best Striker in Serie A, thanks to his good stats across the board. He may be quite short for a striker, but his strength and jumping mean he’s just as much of a threat in the air as he is on the ground.

5. Robert Lewandowski

FIFA 23 is Lewandowski’s time to shine as pace matters less than in previous games. Put a hawk chemistry style to change his AcceleRATE style to lengthy and you’ve got one of the best strikers in the game!

4. Erling Haaland

Haaland might not be the most agile striker in FIFA 23, especially compared to the other top options, but this doesn’t matter at all. Brute strength, pace, and deadly finishing mean if you play the right through ball to him, you are almost certain to score!

3. Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema is top of the list of highest-rated players in FIFA 23, but we rate him as the third-best ST in the game. He’s a true complete forward and is an expert at finishing, dribbling, and playmaking.

This makes him a great asset to even the best teams in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo may not be quite as good as he used to be, but we would still rank him as the second-best striker in FIFA 23. Extremely good shooting and heading, combined with 5-star skill moves and decent passing and dribbling make Ronaldo a force to be reckoned with in FUT this year.

1. Kylian Mbappe

The cover star Kylian Mbappe is the best striker in FIFA 23 by a pretty large margin. A whopping 97 pace and near-perfect dribbling and finishing mean your opponent’s defenders will be having nightmares of Mbappe long after the game is over!

Put the Marksman chemistry style on Mbappe, and he is almost unstoppable!

While these strikers will work well in any formation, we recommend using one of the meta formations in FUT 23. Not only will this get the most out of your strikers, but all of your other players too!

Also, we haven’t included any Heroes or Icons in our list just yet as they are extremely difficult (and expensive) to buy at the start of FIFA!
