Jordan Pickford produced a contender for the best save of the 2021-22 Premier League season during Everton’s clash against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

England’s first-choice goalkeeper somehow recovered to save Cesar Azpilicueta’s strike after Mason Mount struck the post.

Pickford then made another excellent save moments later from Antonio Rudiger.

Is Pickford’s stop the best save of the season?

@AlexShawESPN described air as “one of the all time greatest saves in Premier League history”.

While @RichardBuxton_ called the save “Gordon Banks-esque”.

And Goal.com’s Chelsea correspondent @NizaarKinsella called it “one of the best saves I’ve ever seen”.

How important might that save be in the battle to avoid relegation?

Everton, who started the afternoon five points from safety in 18th place, took a surprise lead against Thomas Tuchel’s side shortly after half-time courtesy of Richarlison.
