FIFA 22 Team of the Year attackers predictions target the three favorites for presumably the first set of players coming to packs when the illustrious promotion begins.

Team of the Year is the biggest, most anticipated promotion each year in FIFA Ultimate Team. Taking place in January, EA Sports awards the largest individual statistic boosts to players who make it into the promotional squad. As part of the promotion, a fan vote takes place with players able to cast their votes across three categories: attackers, midfielders, defenders. Each individual grouping is released in packs for a limited time before all of the players are available in packs for a limited time.

FIFA 22 Team of the Year Attackers Predictions

Here are our predictions for the three attacking spots in FIFA 22 Team of the Year:

1. Robert Lewandowski - ST - Bayern Munich (98 OVR)

Robert Lewandowski is the best striker in the world and is a shoe-in for TOTY. For many, he should've won the Ballon d'Or over Lionel Messi this past year. He scored the most goals in all of Europe and broke Gerd Muller's 49-year record by scoring 43 league goals in 2021. The Polish striker should feature in his second straight TOTY squad.

2. Mohamed Salah - RW - Liverpool (97 OVR)

Salah is widely considered to be currently the best player in world football. He was involved in 35 goals in the Premier League in 2021, 24 goals and 11 assists. That's 11 more than the next player on the list. His 24 goals were six more than the next closest player as well. Plus, he equaled Jamie Vardy's record by scoring or assisting in 15 consecutive Premier League appearances. He's one of the most popular players in the game currently, and the Egyptian is likely to make his first ever TOTY squad.

3. Lionel Messi - RW - Paris Saint-Germain (99 OVR)

Messi received his seventh Ballon d'Or in 2021 and is a surefire pick for Team of the Year. Not only that, but he should also receive a 99 overall item as previous Ballon d'Or winners have in past TOTY squads. Also, Messi lifted his first Copa America trophy during the summer adding an international trophy to his accolades. He'll be one of the most sought after items in the game considering his links to players like Kylian Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi.
