The ability to shield the ball from your opposition has proved crucial in the early stages of FIFA 22.
Whether it's your centre forward holding the ball up for the overlapping run, or your centre back muscling his opposite number off the ball, strength seems more important than ever before.
If you're in the need of a physical presence to add to your Ultimate Team setup then you're in the right place, here are all the strongest players to buy in Ultimate Team.

Just to clarify, this list will be comprised based on the raw strength of those available in Ultimate Team, not their physicality.
We'll be focusing solely on the base items of cards to ensure that every player is on a level playing field, regardless of any inclusion in the TOTW or any other promotion.
We will also break the players down by position, so you can head straight to the area of the field that you are looking for.
