The days of goalkeepers being under-appreciated are long gone. Everybody knows you need a top-quality player operating between the sticks to have any hopes of a successful season.

As a result, the Premier League is home to some of the world’s finest shot-stoppers with clubs looking to maximise the marginal gains a competent goalkeeper can bring to the table.

However, measuring a goalkeeper’s importance is a tricky task. Some weighting is clearly given to the number of saves they make, but those who represent teams fighting against relegation are usually busier than those in a title race.

Clean sheets are also far from a perfect metric given that the calibre of finishing in England‘s top tier can often see a goalkeeper’s record muddied through no real fault of their own.

Whichever side of the fence you’re on, Squawka has you covered. We’ve put together a list of Premier League goalkeepers with the most saves during the 2019/20 season so far – as well as a tally of those with the highest number of clean sheets, who will be in with a shout of winning the Golden Glove award.

Burnley’s Nick Pope currently occupies top spot with a total of 13 but Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is hot on his heels. The Brazilian has played significantly less than many of his rivals this term, and that could be the difference if he is to become the third goalkeeper to retain the award.
