5 Best Goalkeepers in The Premier League This Season
5. Hugo Lloris
The French goalkeeper has been in superb form for Tottenham Hotspur this season. He put up impressive displays against, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League this season.

4. Rui Patrício
The Wolves goalkeeper has been a key man for his team throughout this season. Wolverhampton Wolves are among the best of the rest outside the top 6 teams in the English Premier League. This is partly due to Rui Patricio’s brilliance. He has kept six clean sheets so far.
The Brazilian goalkeeper has played a key role in Manchester City‘s excellent season. Ederson is praised mainly for his ball playing ability as a goalkeeper, but he is also very agile and has quick reflexes.
Ederson has kept over 16 clean sheets for Manchester City.
Another Brazilian goalkeeper makes our list. Allison Becker is arguably one of the top goalkeepers in the world right now. Although he is covered by one of the best defence in the Premier League, he does well whenever he is needed. The Liverpool shotstopper has proven to be worth every penny that Jurgen Klopp spent on him.
Allison is also the goalkeeper with the highest number of clean sheets in the Premier League this season.
1. David de Gea
David de Gea is regarded by many as the best goalkeeper in the world right now, and they are right. The Spaniard deservedly is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League this season. He is the reason why Manchester United are still in contention for the top four and have just conceded 44 goals.
In spite of Manchester United’s leaky defence, De Gea has kept seven clean sheets and made over 106 saves.
