    De Gea, Pope and the Premier League’s leading goalkeepers based on save percentage


    Who was the best goalkeeper this year?

    The Premier League season came to a close on Sunday afternoon after 9 months of hard work.

    David De Gea won the Golden Glove after keeping 18 clean sheets for Manchester United and conceding just 28 goals.

    Based on statistics obtained from Fox Sports, Reddit User Whoateallmytime has put together a table of all the Premier League goalkeepers based on their save percentage.

    David De Gea tops the table

    David De Gea faced 144 shots on goal making 115 saves which is a remarkable statistic but shows that there are plenty of flaws in Manchester United’s defence. The Spaniard had a terrific season but shouldn’t have to be making so many saves in order to keep United in the top four.

    Burnley were certainly the surprise package of the season as they finished seventh and qualified for next season’s Europa League. Their performances were often aided by the heroics of substitute goalkeeper, Nick Pope who stepped in for the injured Tom Heaton.

    Pope finished the season with the second highest save percentage out of all the goalkeepers in the league.

    Despite Swansea’s relegation, former Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski had a fantastic campaign and has proved that he is far too good for the Championship.

    West Ham’s Adrian finished surprisingly high in the table.

    Do Arsenal and Tottenham need a new goalkeeper?

    Petr Cech finished 23rd in the table of keepers which is simply not good enough for a top club.

    If Arsenal want to compete in the top four season, they certainly need an upgrade.

    Cech faced 137 shots and made just 87 saves. The 35 year old conceded 48 goals and made 6 errors leading to the opposition scoring.

    Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris may have finished 10th in the table, but he only slightly aged out Brighton stopper Matt Ryan.

    Lloris made 5 costly errors which led to goals this season and he simply cannot continue to keep making mistakes.
