10. Eduardo Vargas (QPR) – 6.50 million goals
Vargas’ move to the Premier League was going to make his card popular. Quick strikers
are usually popular in the Premier League and the Chilean forward cost barely a couple of
thousand coins since the game was released.
9. Diego Costa (Chelsea) – 6.59 million goals
Diego Costa is probably the most expensive option in the top ten, which highlights that
he is a popular player in the game. Costing near 100,000 FIFA 15 coins from when the game was
released, few players would’ve been able to afford the Spaniard so early, so to have so
many goals shows the strength of his card
8. Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) – 6.59 million goals
Benzema is similar to Costa in the fact that he was expensive at the start of the game, as he was the best striking option in the La Liga, due to Luis Suarez being suspended and Lionel Messi being far too expensive. Benzema is a quick striker, with good finishing and heading, so an all-round goal machine.
7. Victor Ibarbo (Cagliari) 7.20 million goals
Victor Ibarbo is one of the quickest players on Ultimate Team and was a popular choice last year with Luis Muriel in Serie A sides. With Muriel now an expensive silver, Ibarbo has been one of the top gold players in the league, without being too expensive.
6. Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – 7.31 million goals
Lacazette has been on form for Lyon this season, which has been replicated by EA giving the player two in-forms this season. His normal card is a rare gold, worth no more than one thousand coins and has plenty of pace and ability in front of goal.
5. Danny Welbeck (Arsenal) – 7.34 million goals
Danny Welbeck as a non-rare was a surprise at the start of the game, but from day one, he has been one of the cheapest, yet strongest Premier League strikers on the game. With excellent pace and finishing, Welbeck is a must buy for those with little coin totals
4. Romelu Lukaku (Everton) – 7.87 million goals
Romelu Lukaku is very similar to Christian Benteke, in the fact that, the addition of the physicality aspect of the game has made his card much stronger. The advantage Lukaku has over Benteke is that his pace is a lot stronger, which has made him more popular in my opinion.
3. Loic Remy (Chelsea) – 10.25 million goals
Loic Remy, pacey, strong in the air and a finisher in front of goal; is there much else you need in a FIFA striker? His price has been reduced considerably due to the team of the year cards and the packs being opened lately, so as you can see by the total goals, a worthy addition.
2. Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) – 10.27 million goals
Daniel Sturridge was a strong card last year, but thanks to an excellent season with Luis Suarez last season, he has been made even better this year. Excellent pace and shooting, Sturridge is one of the best strikers in the Premier League section this year on FIFA.
1. Adrian Ramos (Dortmund) – 10.78 million goals
A possible surprise as to the number one position, but in my opinion it’s an expected one. With Germany winning the World Cup this year, the Bundesliga was always going to be popular on FIFA. With Lewandowski being so expensive and Aubameyang being moved to a right midfield position, Ramos has become the quickest and possibly strongest striking option in the Bundesliga, whilst his price has been consistently under 10,000 coins since the start of the game. Excellent card.
No surprise to see that most of the players on the list are from the Premier League, as that is without doubt the most popular league on the game. But it is a slight surprise to see that the number one position does not belong to that league. Who is your favourite striker on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team?
