Premier League Goalkeepers with Most Clean Sheets after Ten Games this season

A goalkeeper celebrates with his teammates when they win a match. Sometimes, they also celebrate themselves when they make good saves. An observant football viewer can easily testify to this.

On the extreme part, it brings a special joy to a goalkeeper when he or she did not concede any goal throughout a match. In other words, in football terms, he or she has kept a clean sheet in that match.

Goalkeepers are judged by how good they are in making saves and how often they concede goals. By the end of a football campaign, goalkeepers are ranked base on the number of clean sheets they kept throughout the campaign.
