The 2021/22 Premier League season has had a very good amount of goalkeepers performing at their very best. Maintaining clean sheets and a good save percentage is not a very easy task. There is a set of goalkeepers who have done it very well this season.
We take a look at 3 of the very best goalkeepers in the Premier League this season
#3 Edouard Mendy – Chelsea
The brand new Chelsea goalkeeper has done extremely well this season. The Senegalese took next to no time to settle in West London and get used to their ways. Despite not having played all games, the goalkeeper is only two clean sheets behind the number one spot in the league.
Many argued that the player may have a tough time settling in the league but he proved all of that to be false. Of course, he has had the help of a very good set of defenders too. However, he is easily one of the top 3 goalkeepers in the Premier League this season.
#2 Ederson Moraes -Manchester City
Nothing has changed for the Manchester City man. He continues to be the silent killer of this massive team. At the very heart of almost every build-up from the back, Ederson’s passing skills and long ball abilities are simply exquisite. The goalkeeper even landed an assist this season and it is not surprising that he has multiple assists in a Manchester City shirt. The Brazilian was not always known for his shot-stopping abilities as he made a good amount of mistakes at goal.
This season, however, he has improved this factor too. He has the highest amount of clean sheets in the Premier League this season right after he won the golden glove last season too. The Brazilian has been Pep’s dream goalkeeper with his passing and build-up abilities. He is surely present in the top 3 goalkeeper list in the league this season.
#1 Emiliano Martinez- Aston Villa
After an emotional FA Cup win with Arsenal after spending so many years at the club, he departed. Aston Villa landed the Argentine for a total fee of 20 million pounds this season. Safe to say that he has easily been the best goalkeeper in the league this season. The player has made the highest amount of saves this season.
Villa have had a very good season compared to their usual standards. However, this was possible due to some individual performances by the Argentine. He has the most amount of save percentage too. Also a very good amount of clean sheets so far. With his shot-stopping abilities, he has easily been the very best this season.
