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 as clubs look 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 amount of saves they make, but those who represent teams fighting 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.
