Let’s get to know them. Here are the top 10 strikers in the recent installment of FIFA Ultimate Team:
With an overall FIFA 18 rating of 90, Eden Hazard is plays number 10 as a wide man for Chelsea in England. Perhaps the most famous Belgian footballer in history, he’s especially lauded for his creativity and technical ability. He’s also adept at cutting inside to shoot or moving to the touchline to cross to a teammate. Since joining Chelsea in 2012, the right-footer has scored 56 goals and helped win the Premier League recently. He has a 4-star skill moves rating and High/Medium work rates. His best stats are: Defense 32, Dribbling 92, Pace 90, Passing 84, Physical 66 and Shooting 82.
Moving down from his previous eight spot is player number 7, Alexis Sánchez. He’s a wide midfielder for Arsenal in England where he’s established himself as the figurehead of the team and has completed every season with double figures in both assists and goals. He won the FA Community Shield and the FA Cup on two occasions, scoring in both finals. In the 2016–17 season alone, he’s provided 14 assists and scored 30 goals. A right-foot shooter, Sánchez got a 4-star skill moves rating with High/High work rates. His overall rating in FIFA 18 is 89. And his best player stats are: Defense 40, Dribbling 89, Pace 84, Passing 80, Physical 78 and Shooting 84.
Now at number eight is Gareth Bale. He plays as a winger for Real Madrid in Spain as number 11. One of the fastest players in the world, he’s known for his tremendous speed, great crossing ability and exceptional physical qualities. A great left foot shooter, he’s also received praise for his ball striking from a distance and skill to get past defenders smoothly. So it’s no surprise that he has a 4-star skill move rating and High/Medium work rates. There may be a 1 point decrease in his overall FIFA rating, from 90 to 89, but his playing skills haven’t at all deteriorated. His player stats are: Defense 57, Dribbling 86, Pace 94, Passing 84, Physical 76 and Shooting 87.
Taking a big leap from his previous spot as number 10 is the striker for Manchester City in England, Sergio Agüero always displays his brilliant prowess on the field. He’s elusive and fast in front of a goal, proving to be a threat to the opposing team’s defenders and showing only improvement as years go by. In fact, he’s considered to be one of the finest strikers in Premier League. This right-foot shooter has a 4-star skill move rating with High/Medium work rates. His overall rating in FIFA 18 is 89, which remained unchanged from FIFA 17. His best stats are: Defense 23, Dribbling 89, Pace 87, Passing 75, Physical 72 and Shooting 88.
Moving up a spot is Gonzalo Higuaín. He plays number 9 as a striker for Juventus in Italy. When he was signed by the team in 2016, he became the most expensive South American footballer in history. It was a well-deserved transfer fee as Higuaín proved to be a prolific striker, managing to score 24 goals in his first season with the club. He can finish nearly anything with both feet and his head as well as open up space for himself and his teammates. The right-footer has 3-star skill moves rating and an overall FIFA 18 rating of 90, with High/Medium work rates. His best stats are: Defense 25, Dribbling 83, Pace 79, Passing 70, Physical 74 and Shooting 87.
Boasting an overall FIFA 18 rating of 91, Robert Lewandowski plays as a striker for FC Bayern in Germany with the number 9. He also captains the Poland national team. He was named to the UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season on each of the last two seasons. At the same time, he has totalled over 150 goals in Germany’s top division, Bundesliga, and reached the century mark quicker than any other foreign player. This right footer has a 3-star skill moves rating and High/Medium work rates. His best player stats are: Defense 38, Dribbling 86, Pace 81, Passing 75, Physical 82 and Shooting 88.
One of the most expensive footballers in the world with his record breaking 64.98 million-pound transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona, Luis Suárez has won 14 trophies in his career, including a Copa América, a UEFA Champions League title and four league titles. He won La Liga’s Pichichi Trophy in 2016, which promptly ended the six-year dominance of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He also scored his 300th senior career goal for club and country in 2015.

His best stats: Defense 42, Dribbling 86, Pace 82, Passing 79, Physical 81 and Shooting 90.
Playing as number 10 and wide man for Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar is easily one of the best cards in the game and the world’s most expensive player. He definitely belongs to the upper echelons of Brazilian footballers and only slightly rated below Messi and Ronaldo, what with his overall FIFA 18 rating of 92. His talent-packed history is definitely a testament to that. This right footer has a very impressive 5-star skill moves rating and High/Medium work rates. His best player stats are Defense 30, Dribbling 94, Pace 92, Passing 79, Physical 60 and Shooting 84.
Lionel Messi definitely deserves to be in the top two spots in this list. With an overall rating in FIFA 18 is 93, it will be a real shame not to put him into your team. This FC Barcelona wide man is regarded as the best player in the world and arguably even the greatest of all time. He’s the only player in history to win five FIFA Ballon d’Or awards and a record-tying four European Golden Boots. He’s also won 29 trophies with Barcelona, including five Copas del Rey, eight La Liga titles and four UEFA Champions League titles. This left footer boasts a 4-star skill moves rating and Medium/Medium work rates. His best stats are: Defense 26, Dribbling 95, Pace 89, Passing 86, Physical 61 and Shooting 90.
Cristiano Ronaldo is no doubt the number one striker in FIFA 18. With his overall rating of 94, he has a lot to offer. The Real Madrid wide man has been ranked as both the world’s most famous athlete and world’s top paid athlete – for a good reason. Like Messi, he’s widely considered as the best player in the world and in history. He’s won four FIFA Ballon d’Or awards and became the first player in history to win four European Golden Shoes. In his career, he’s also won 24 trophies which includes four UEFA Champions League titles, one UEFA European and Championship five league titles. He even holds the records for most official goals scored in the top five European league. A right-foot shooter, Ronaldo has a whopping 5-star skill moves rating and High/Low work rates. His best player stats are: Defense 33, Dribbling 90, Pace 90, Passing 82, Physical 80 and Shooting 93.
