Premier League 2018/19 season is already up and running. Liverpool is currently top of the table with nine points after three matches on the board. The Reds are yet to concede a goal and this means their goal difference in perfect. Manchester City drew away against Wolves last weekend but their neighbors Manchester United are in trouble after losing 2 consecutive matches. Arsenal is the only London team not doing so well because Chelsea and Tottenham also have 9 points. Today, we want to look at best goalkeepers in the League at the moment. The League has welcomed four top keepers and the ranking has changed.
7. Petr Cech- Arsenal
Premier League clean sheet record holder Petr Cech is a man under serious pressure and scrutiny at the moment. The Czech international has made several errors in the past and this season the pundits have identified some already. The difference is that this time around, there is a challenger by the name Bernd Leno who arrived last summer from Bayer Leverkusen. Unai Emery has decided to stick with him but the question is for how long.
6. Rui Patrício- Wolves
Wolves pulled off a shocking transfer this summer when they managed to sign Portugal number one goalkeeper Rui Patrício. The deal has already elicited a lot of discussions because Sporting Lisbon has decided to report the Premier League club to FIFA. The shot-stopper somehow terminated his contract to sign for the newly promoted side for free. No matter what happens from here, he is already a top goalkeeper in English football.
5. Kepa Arrizabalaga- Chelsea
Chelsea paid £72million to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao. This happened because their number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois decided to join Real Madrid this summer. Liverpool shocked all of us when they paid £67 million to sign Alisson Becker from AS Roma but their record did not last a month.
The 23-year-old Spaniard goalkeeper has signed a 7-year contract at Stamford Bridge. His age means he is a good investment because he has more than 10 years to play at the highest level. He is officially the most expensive goalkeeper in history. So far, he has conceded 3 goals in the League alone. He needs to work hard to keep more clean sheets.
4. David De Gea- Man United
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is suffering from lack of confidence at the moment. The problem started last summer when he was playing for Spain national team in the World Cup. The Spaniard shot-stopper had the worst saves rate in the tournament and many people from his country blamed him for the team poor performance. In three League games, he has conceded 7 goals so far. Jose Mourinho needs to have a chat with him but the crisis is too big for him to notice the goalkeeper problem.
