Premier League clean sheets and most saves: Golden Glove standings for 2020/21

With sweeper ‘keepers all the rage in football at the minute, the spotlight has arguably never been greater on the man between the sticks.

Managers are increasingly demanding that their goalkeepers must be proficient with the ball at his feet and quick off the line to anticipate danger. But, fundamentally, a goalkeeper’s main objective is to prevent the ball hitting the onion bag.

Do this and your team stands a greater chance of winning. So, while we may laud the ball-playing exploits of Alisson, or the crisp precision of Ederson’s passing range, these modern requirements of the No. 1 would count for little if opposition shots were consistently hitting the stanchion.

Fortunately for Man City and Liverpool fans, the above duo are pretty good at doing both, with Ederson currently in joint-first position for the Golden Glove, alongside Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez. But, who will win the race come May?
