FIFA 23 TOTY winner predictions
In previous FIFA TOTY, the nominees were announced over a 3-day period, with the attacking players last to be unveiled.
Voting then begins on the list of nominees before finally EA announced the FIFA 23 TOTY squad.
FIFA 23 TOTY goalkeeper prediction
- Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid and Belgium) – While a lot could be said for France’s Hugo Lloris, Courtois was the MOTM in the Champions League final.
FIFA 23 TOTY defense predictions
- Theo Hernandez (AC Milan and France) – Hernandez has been smashing it for AC Milan down the left and also played a crucial part in France’s World Cup exploits.
- Marcos Acuna (Sevilla and Argentina) – He absolutely bombed up and down the wing for Argentina during the World Cup and fully deserves his spot in TOTY.
- Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool and Netherlands) – A defensive genius who may not have had a great end to 2022 but is still considered one of the best in the world.
- Achraf Hakimi (PSG and Morocco) – Morocco looked superb in the World Cup, as did Hakimi to boot, and fully deserves a spot.
FIFA 23 TOTY midfield predictions
- Casemiro (Manchester United and Brazil) – Before moving to Manchester, he was the stalwart of Real Madrid and was one of the best defensive midfielders with Brazil in the World cup too.
- Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City and Belgium) – Arguably the best midfielder in the world and the cornerstone of Manchester City’s success. Ok, Belgium had another shocking World Cup but De Bruyne is the main man in the premier league.
- Luka Modric (Real Madrid and Croatia) – Despite Luka’s age he keeps on delivering and had another incredible year in 2022. Winning a Champions league is always impressive and seeing him dictate play on the World Stage never gets boring, an easy contender.
FIFA 23 TOTY attacker predictions
- Lionel Messi (PSG and Argentina) – Maybe it is a bit cliche to put the GOAT into a predictions list but after the World Cup he had, it is hard to leave him out.
- Erling Haaland (Manchester City and Norway) – Our wildcard prediction here, Haaland was the fastest in Premier League history to 20 league goals, no mean feat.
- Kylian Mbappe (PSG and France) – You knew it was coming, Mbappe was always going to be in our predictions. Aside from being an all-out monster for PSG, he scored a hattrick in the World Cup final, resulting in the golden boot, amazing.
- Karim Benzema (Real Madrid and France) Our 12th-man prediction goes to Benzema, who was unbelievably good in PSG’s Champions League campaign.
