Last year, Petr Cech received the Golden Glove for earning the most clean sheets in the Premier League (16), but Heurelho Gomes was the unlikely goalkeeper of the season according to statistics and ratings.
This campaign should be different in many ways, especially in the rankings at the top of the league, with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois expected to bounce back from a poor season, and David De Gea of Manchester United also likely to be enjoying clean sheets with new manager Jose Mourinho around.
The following list doesn’t exactly reflect what we saw last season; however, it’s hard to imagine many goalkeepers enjoying a better season than these five.
The Tottenham and France captain had an excellent season but failed to win a trophy, narrowly missing out on both the Premier League and Euro 2016.
Spurs were tight at the back and conceded the fewest goals in the league (35), as Belgium’s defensive duo of Alderweireld and Vertonghen proved to be rock-solid in Lloris’s command and recorded 13 clean sheets.
The Frenchman appeared in 37 games and made 87 saves in the Premier League last year, and we can expect another good term from him this time around.
