Best goalkeepers in Premier League as of 2019

Lukasz Fabianski

Fabianski has been a different goalkeeper since the time he left Arsenal, and the recently signed West Ham No. 1 has established himself as a reliable goalkeeper. He moved from Swansea this season after the Swans were relegated. Fabianski has been a saviour for West Ham with Felipe Anderson and is already a fan favourite.

Fabianski has made 3.7 saves per game and kept 4 clean sheets with 1 spot kick saved in this term. Lukasz conceded 1.48 goals per game with a tally of 86 clear cut saves.

Hugo Lloris

The French goalkeeper has always been a consistent performer for Spurs and has led the team under Pochettino with unmatchable ease. He led France to their 2nd ever World Cup victory in 2018 and will be desperate to win silverwares with Spurs. Lloris has had considerable trouble handling crosses, but his ability to stretch and make some incredible saves

With 8 clean sheets and 3.2 saves per game, Lloris has been a consistent performer even when his front line hasn’t been at their best recently. With 0.95 goals conceded and 50 saves to his name, Lloris is yet to make a penalty save this season.

Ederson

The Brazilian is one of Pep’s eye candies, and for all the good reasons. His ability to hit the ball to almost the opposite penalty area combined with his utter confidence on the ball, Ederson plays the role of Valdes during Pep’s time with Barcelona. He hasn’t been as prolific as he would have wanted to be, but Ederson has the eye for the extraordinary and his 0.74 goals per game with 10 clean sheets, albeit without any penalty saves to his name.

Guardiola banks heavily on Ederson’s distribution, which is a rare trait in South American goalkeepers, but the southpaw seems to have mastered it.

Alisson Becker

When Alisson threw himself in front of a raging Napoli side, it was clear that he will soon register himself into the folklores of Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp made sure that the Liverpool management made every effort to sign up the Brazilian No. 1. After Karius’s howler against Real Madrid in the 2018 UCL final, Alisson was always the undisputed No.1, and he has made a strong case for himself.

Uncharacteristically, he has made a few blunders, which has resulted in some kind of discomfort, but with age on his side, and a mentor like Klopp, he can easily grow into the best in the business. He has 13 clean sheets to his name with a 2.1 saves per game, whereas his conceding stats is .57 per game alongside 1 penalty save.

David De Gea

There were talks of De Gea losing his mojo after a disastrous World Cup campaign, but the Spanish No. 1 showed why United fans and others rate him as the best. His recent match against Spurs, made Peter Drury shout “the man is elastic”. De Gea is regaining his old form under Ole, and the United of old is slowly getting in the mix, and their biggest contributor remains to the Spanish goalkeeper.

With a whopping total of 82 saves and 4 clean sheets, De Gea has conceded goals at 1.43 per games. De Gea is certainly leading the chart, and under Ole he can improve his conceding statistics.
