Premier League Goalkeeper Spotlight

The Premier League is only two weeks old, and only three sides are left with perfect records this season. Two of these three sides – newly-promoted Huddersfield and Tony Pulis’ West Brom surprisingly find themselves joint-top of the league table.

The third side is Manchester United, who have clearly made the biggest impression in the league in the opening two weeks. Jose Mourinho’s side are yet to concede a goal this season, and they have scored a total of eight.

In this feature, we are going to review the performances of top goalkeepers in the league during the opening two weeks. As things stand, only keepers belonging to the top three clubs have managed to keep two clean sheets. Understandably, these three keepers occupy the top three spots in our EuroFantasyLeague table.

The first name on the list is Manchester United keeper David de Gea. The Spaniard doesn’t come cheap at 12.5m, but he has already picked up 14 points on the back of two clean sheets. Currently, 4% of EuroFantasyLeague teams own De Gea. United next play Leicester City at Old Trafford and De Gea will be aiming for another clean sheet.

Huddersfield’s Jonas Lossl is the next name on our list and the Danish keeper has also picked up 14 points on the back of two shutouts. However, in comparison to De Gea, he is quite cheap in the market at 5.5m. The Terriers can’t be expected to keep their winning run going run, and hence Lossl might not be a wise investment in the long run.

West Brom’s experienced keeper Ben Foster is also on 14 points. The former England international comes really cheap at 3m in the market. The Baggies were decent defensively last season, and that is one thing you can definitely expect from a Tony Pulis’ side. Foster could prove to be a decent investment at his price this season.

Everton’s Jordan Pickford occupies the nest spot with seven points. The £30m summer-signing has conceded just one goal in his first two appearances for the Toffees. The 23-year-old is one of the best talents in his age group, and at just 2.5m in the market, he is definitely worth a punt for Fantasy Football managers.

The last spot is occupied by Manchester City’s summer business Ederson Moraes. The Brazilian costs only 2m in the market, and he is the most popular choice in EuroFantasyLeague with 9% of managers. He has also picked up seven points up until now and has conceded a solitary goal.
