Premier League season concluded last Sunday to pave way for Russia World Cup 2018. Champions Manchester City finished the season with a record 100 points. Manchester United fans will be happy with the second place going by the disappointing campaigns since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club. Chelsea and Arsenal will obviously work hard to avoid the dreaded Europa League next season. Today, we want to focus on goalkeepers. We want to look at five shot-stoppers who made most errors leading to goals in 2017/18 season.
5. Jonas Lössl- 3 Errors
Huddersfield Town silenced their critics in the best possible style by getting valuable points against Manchester City and Chelsea to secure their Premier League survival. The odds were on them to go down because they had 35 points with final three matches against top six sides. David Wagner and his players need to be rewarded for their team effort. Jonas Lössl made a massive save at Stamford Bridge to keep the match at 1-1. Therefore, we can’t blame him so much for making three costly errors that led to goals. He did well in his first season in English top flight.
4. Joe Hart- 4 Errors
England boss Gareth Southgate has told his most experienced goalkeeper Joe Hart that he will not be going to Russia World Cup this summer. The pundits and fans saw this coming because the shot-stopper had another disastrous season at West Ham. It is therefore tough to see how he can be selected ahead of Jack Butland, Nick Pope, and Jordan Pickford. In 2017/18 season, he made 4 errors that led to goals.
3. Asmir Begovic- 5 Errors
Bournemouth somehow managed to survive despite a hot and cold season in terms of their performance. Eddie Howe knows he needs to do well in 2018/19 season or go down to the Championship. The goalkeeper Asmir Begovic must take part of the blame for making 5 costly errors that gave away goals to the opponents. He is a top shot-stopper who arrived last summer from Chelsea.
