Top Goalkeepers in Premier League 2023-24

For goalkeepers and their teams, a clean sheet in football is a prized accomplishment that represents defence and tenacity. With an amazing 17 clean sheets in his career, former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea was named the best goalkeeper in the Premier League last season.

As the late Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United, famously said, “Defence wins titles, attack wins games.” Championship-winning teams frequently have a history of maintaining clean sheets.

In the Premier League, which is known for its intense competition, goalkeepers are essential to their teams’ defensive stability.

Spanish shot-stopper David de Gea clinched the coveted Premier League Golden Glove last season with his remarkable 17 clean sheets for Manchester United.

In the preceding 2021-22 season, Manchester City’s Ederson and Liverpool’s Alisson Becker shared the Golden Glove, each boasting 20 clean sheets. Ederson has previously clinched the award twice, while Alisson secured it once.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and ex-Manchester City custodian Joe Hart hold the record for the most Premier League Golden Glove awards, each claiming the honor four times.

Cech also holds the prestigious distinction of boasting the most clean sheets in Premier League history, with a staggering 202, followed by David James with 169.

In the ongoing Premier League 2023-24 season, Arsenal’s David Raya leads the clean sheet race with an impressive 12 shutouts. He is closely followed by Jordan Pickford of Everton with 9 clean sheets and Bernd Leno of Fulham, Andre Onana of Manchester United, and Ederson of Manchester City, each with 8 clean sheets.

With the race for the Golden Glove heating up, goalkeepers like Alisson Becker of Liverpool and new Arsenal acquisition David Raya are expected to challenge for the coveted title.

As the season progresses, the battle among these formidable goalkeepers promises to add excitement and intrigue to the Premier League landscape.
