The Premier League is home to some of the best goalkeepers in the world with the likes of Petr Cech, Joe Hart and Simon Mignolet all plying their trade in England.
So I have created a list of Golden Glove contenders for this season.
One of the most respected goalkeepers in the world, and while he may not be at the same level as in his early Chelsea career, he remains one of the best shot-stoppers around.
He has held several goalkeeping records including fewest number of appearances to achieve 100 clean sheets. Cech is one of the best ‘keepers in Premier League and Chelsea history.
Mignolet arrived at Sunderland in 2010 and only made 90 appearances but in that time he became one of the best goalkeepers in the league.
After having to fight for his place with Craig Gordon, Mignolet earned rave reviews for his excellent performances. He has superb reactions and with an experienced and strong Liverpool defence in front of him he should be able to achieve quite a few clean sheets.
David de Gea
After a rocky debut season which saw him make some high profile mistakes and replaced by Dane Anders Lindergaard, he began to get to grips with the physical side of the Premier League.
De Gea was able to pick himself up and make some stunning saves namely, his foot save from Juan Mata’s shot in the FA Cup. He was voted into the PFA team of the year and if he can keep up his form from last season he will be outstanding.
Begovic, like Mignolet, only joined Stoke City in 2010 and he has had to constantly fight for his place with veteran Thomas Sørensen. He was in fine form last season and his quick reflexes and strong defence mean he has a shot at the Golden Glove.
Joe Hart had his worst season last season and made several blunders, both in the league and for England. As a youth player he was tipped to be a star of the future and the best goalkeeper in the world.
And this was all coming true until this season when his form dropped. Last term he had one of his best campaigns, playing a vital part in Manchester City’s Premier League winning season.
He is hopefully back to his best this season as it is vital to England’s World Cup hopes and Manchester City’s title bid especially as they let go of Kolo Toure, and as Matija Nastasić and Vincent Kompany are out injured.
