10 Top Goalkeepers With Most Errors Leading To Goals In The Premier League Since 2017

There aren't many things that can make a Premier League football player blush, but these 10 players have all experienced it more than once after making a mistake that directly led to an opponent's goal.

Because of the numerous cameras, nonstop commentary, and social media hyena packs, any player who makes a potentially game-changing error will be scrutinized extensively.

Using data from the Premier League's official website, we looked at the 10 players in England's top division who have been responsible for the most mistakes that have led to goals for the opposition since the 2017–18 season began.

Petr Cech, 6

Even if Cech made six gaffes for Arsenal in 2017–18, he is still a Premier League great. After the season ended, it's no surprise that Bernd Leno took over for him.

Ben Foster -10

Wearing a GoPro all the time probably means you're going to make some rookie blunders, what with the constant onslaught of attacks from the opposing team and all. Six of those have come in the last five years, during which time Foster has played for both West Brom and Watford.

Ederson- 6

Ederson is, without a doubt, one of the top goalkeepers in the world. His long-range passes around the Etihad are dirtier than a miner's shovel, and he pings them repeatedly.

The Manchester City goalkeeper is human and is prone to the occasional cuss word. Indeed, throughout the course of his five years in England, he played in six.

Alisson -8

Two of the Premier League's greatest goalkeepers play for Liverpool and Manchester City, the two best teams. That is a proven fact. However, Alisson has made two more goal-costing blunders than his Brazilian rival, each of which has caused Jurgen Klopp to spout out angry words from the sidelines.

The Liverpool goalkeeper has been a savior on countless times and has been instrumental in making the Reds' defense formidable. To put it another way, at least he's not Loris Karius.

Bernd Leno- 8.

When Unai Emery took over as Arsenal's manager in the summer of 2018, he replaced Cech.

Leno had a promising start to his English career, but his confidence wavered and his team's defense became a liability, leading to an increase in costly mistakes. Aaron Ramsdale has taken his place in the starting lineup for the upcoming 2021-22 season.

David de Gea-9

Although De Gea has been one of United's bright spots during a dark period, he has also committed some egregious gaffes in the United goal over the past five years.

In spite of a shaky start, the goalie went on to become one of the best in the world and four-time winner of Manchester United's Player of the Year award.

His tenure at Old Trafford hasn't been without its challenges, but he's managed to hold on to the No. 1 jersey despite competition from Dean Henderson.

Martin Dubravka-9

Dubravka joined Newcastle United in January of 2018 and quickly established himself as one of the team's most reliable performers, eventually earning the honor of "Player of the Year" for the 2019-2020 season.

The Slovakian international's nine mistakes could play a role in Eddie Howe's decision to spend his summer lottery riches on a new goalkeeper.

Asmir Begovic 10

Although he has only made 64 Premier League appearances since the 2017-18 season began, Begovic has already given up 10 goals due to his own mistakes.

The most error-prone goalkeeper in Premier League history is still playing in the league, and he did so while playing for Bournemouth under Eddie Howe.

Hugo Lloris-10

Lloris has been a fantastic teammate and goalkeeper for Tottenham Hotspur over the past decade. He has been instrumental in the team's success during its most successful era in recent memory.

However, in the Premier League over the past 4.5 years, the World Cup winner has committed 10 mistakes that directly resulted in goals for the opponent.

Jordan Pickford-13

Pickford, as seen in Everton's recent win against Chelsea and for England, is capable of producing some remarkable saves, and his enthusiasm in goal seems to rub off on his teammates.

However, since 2017, he has made 13 mistakes that have led to goals, notably the one that allowed Divock Origi to score the game-winning goal in the Merseyside derby last December.
