We can talk about how important 10 players are out on the pitch and how if they don't take their chances and defend very well, they will lose. But the fact remains that the goalkeeper is the last line of defense for every team in the world, regardless of how good they are defensively or offensively.
In this article, we are going to take a look at the best goalkeepers in the league this season and how well they have played by analyzing the least goals per game they concede.
4. David Raya
Club - Brentford
Goals conceded per game - 1.0
Brentford have proven to become the surprise package of the season much like Sheffield United were 2 seasons ago. They are a well-organised side but what really keeps them in a game and from losing is David Raya, their number one who has become one of the best keepers this season in the league.
Club - Manchester City
Goals conceded per game - 0.6
The Manchester City goalkeeper is one of the most proactive keepers in world football as he starts attacks for his team, while also ending the oppositions' attack before they even start. He is why Manchester City are able to usually play with a high line.
2. Aaron Ramsdale
Club - Arsenal
Goals conceded per game - 0.5
Ramsdale did not start the season as Arsenal's number one but he has soon claimed that spot after a series of high profile errors from Bernd Leno. The English keeper has been one of Arsenal's bright spark this season, establishing himself as a central figure in their 9-game unbeaten run across all competitions.
1. Edouard Mendy
Club - Chelsea
Goals conceded per game - 0.4
The veteran keeper has kept Kepa Arrizabalaga on the bench since the start of last season and with this form, Mendy is looking more undroppable every week.
