Goalkeepers are usually checked and ranked based on a number of things. Apart from clean sheets kept, organization of the defense, total saves and also their ability to rescue penalties matters a lot.
For goalkeepers with good defenses, they rarely get shots going past the defense and therefore a lower save rate. However this is different with teams with poor defenses. That means the goalkeeper has to be constantly called upon for saves.
Sam Johnston is the goalkeeper with the most saves this season. He is the first choice goalkeeper for Westbrom. He has been confident between the post at personal level despite their leaky defense. Sad they got relegate however.
Aaron Ramsdale is second with 144 saves this season. That only means that Sheffield have had one of the most leaky defenses in the premier league this season.
Illan Meslier of Leeds has made 140 saves this season. Luckily for them, they have had a superb attack that has covered the faults of the defense and that why they are at top ten.
Emiliano Martinez has made 136 saves this season. At personal level he has been fantastic as the last man. His defense has not been bad though.
Alphonse Areola of Fulham has made 116 saves this season. They have also been relegated back to the championship. That’s the list of top five goalkeepers with most saves this season.
Bernd Leno is at number 14 having made 85 saves. This is an improvement since Arsenal has also improved greatly this season. David De Gea is 19 with 60 saves as Dean Henderson has 37. Edouard Mendy has made 56 saves. Credits to the Chelsea defense.
