Top 10 Highest Scoring Goalkeepers 2020/2021

With the 2020/2021 well behind us, it’s a great time to look at the highest scoring goalkeepers. This will put us in a better position for next season when it comes to player selection.  

1. Mendy (Chelsea) – 159 points
2. Ederson (Man City) – 151 points
3. Martinez (Aston Villa) – 135 points
4. Alisson (Liverpool) – 125 points
5. Leno (Arsenal) – 115 points
6. Pope (Burnley) – 110 points
7. Lloris (Spurs) – 110 points
8. Schmeichel (Leicester) – 102 points
9. Meslier (Leeds) – 93 points
10. De Gea (Man Utd) – 82 points

The goalkeeper position is usually one I really battle with, as they often aren’t the highest point scorers but it can also be difficult to pick up a bargain with the keepers from the bigger clubs being quite expensive. Martinez was a bit of a surprise as I didn’t expect Villa to keep that many clean sheets. I’d have also expected De Gea to be much higher based on the season that Man Utd had.

Looking forward to next season, I’ll almost certainly be searching for a bargain. If we are certain who starts for Man Utd, they could be a good option with fantastic early fixtures. De Gea or Henderson are both only 3m. It’s also worth considering that if you do want to tap into Man City’s defence that Ederson appears to be the only constant, which might make him worth considering as a pick and stick option for the season.

  1. Looking at goalkeepers in the Europa league:
    – Arsenal: Leno and Martinez are two good goalkeepers that are likely to swap regularly. Leno is favourite in the league games, Martinez in the Europa games so will split points so I guess that rules them both out unless one is injured.
    – Spurs: Lloris is number 1 and should be mid price, I see a price drop of 1m from last season so 3m say his price. You would want your bargain keeper to be less than that as Pope, Henderson and Patricio showed with starting prices 1.5-2m. Now Spurs kept four clean sheets so defensive work needed especially with Vertonghen leaving. Spurs have a good understudy keeper in Gazzinga who played well when Lloris was injured so he will likely to the Europa group games/cup keeper.
    – Leicester: Now we might find our goalkeeper. Danny Ward is the understudy keeper but not as good as the other seconds from the Europa league teams mentioned above. So good chance Schmeichel will play in the Europa league especially the harder home/away games. The bad news Schmeichel performed well last season so his price likely to increase from 3m to 3.5m, another mid range keeper – not exactly bargain.

    1. Couldn’t agree more. I think it’s going to be a real challenge finding a bargain keeper this season, especially one that is in Europe.

  2. Quite like the look of Brighton’s new keeper (Robert Sanchez) as a nice cheap option. £1.5m makes him the cheapest keeper who should be starting week in week out within the game.

    Brighton kept 12 clean sheets in the PL last season, equalling the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Everton, Leeds and Spurs. They indeed actually outperformed the likes of Leicester, Burnley and West Ham. Unless a team manages a crazy amount of clean sheets throughout a season (well over 20), I don’t really see the value paying an extra £2.5m for a premium keeper. There is an argument for Henderson at £3m though but I’d bet my bottom dollar that DDG will play some of the cup competitions.

    Brighton have a settled squad with a manager who’s been there a good while now. They are also 3rd best in the “saves” statistic in the league last season, with only Chelsea and Man City keepers having to make less saves. That shows that the Brighton defence were pretty mean last season when it came to conceding shots.

    Appreciate any thoughts on Sanchez as an option guys.

    1. I did pose the same question in the Facebook group but no one was really keen on Sanchez. You’ve made a much better case than I have though. I think their opening fixtures aren’t bad either.
