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.
Cech had a fantastic season and deservedly won the Golden Glove award for the first time since the 2009/10 campaign last year. The former Chelsea man was beaten only 31 times in 34 games and recorded the league’s best 16 clean sheets, making 98 saves.
Unless Wenger brings in a world-class defender, it will be tough for Cech to defend his title.
