Federico Valverde, Joao Cancelo and Erling Haaland are all in contention, with the fan vote determining who gets their hands on an incredible special item in Ultimate Team.
Well, it looks like the votes have been counted and the TOTY 12th Man has already been chosen, with leaks suggesting a certain someone has been selected for the final TOTY spot ahead of release.
Latest - Haaland stats LEAKED
That man is Manchester City goal machie Erling Haaland.
According to Fut Sheriff on Twitter, Haaland will be handed a 96 OVR Team of the Year card in Ultimate Team.
The Norway international will have 96 shooting, 96 pace, 94 physicality and 88 dribbling.
These stats no doubt make up one of the most overpowered striker cards in the entire game.
The 22-year-old is somewhat let down by his three-star skill moves and three-star weak foot, but with those stats, that won't matter!
EA may even decide to bump Haaland's weak foot up to four stars, as three seems a little low for the City goal machine.
12th Man revealed
Despite netting a 54-minute hat trick against Wolves last weekend, Manchester City striker Erling Haaland was not included in the TOTW 13 squad.
This can only mean one thing... Haaland is the FIFA 23 Team of the Year 12th Man!
Various Ultimate Team leakers, including the ever-reliable Fut Sheriff are now supporting this theory, confirming that the Norwegian attacker has won the vote.
Certified goal machine
Since making the switch to the Premier League last summer, Erling Haaland has proven that he is the most prolific goal scorer in world football.
Haaland did start his 2022 campaign in Germany, though, with Borussia Dortmund, where he netted nine goals in thirteen league appearances before the end of the 2021/22 Bundesliga season.
Having arrived in England, you could say Haaland hit the ground running...
The centre-forward has scored twenty-one goals in fifteen league appearances as well as five goals in four UEFA Champions League matches for Manchester City in 2022.
These stats prove why Haaland is absolutely deserving of a place in the FIFA 23 Team of the Year squad.
