Liverpool’s Alisson Becker has been named the best goalkeeper within the Premier League, whereas David de Gea sits within the ‘overrated’ class.
SPORTbible’s TierMaker rating seems to be on the present crop of keepers and it is clear that Alisson is No 1 – an entire keeper, dependable and nice along with his toes. Given time, he’ll be competing with Peter Schmeichel for Premier League best-ever standing.
Just under within the ‘elite’ tier sits the person Alisson retains out of the Brazil group – Ederson – Wolves’ Rui Patricio, plus Kasper Schmeichel, who Leicester have carried out properly to hold on to.
Sadly topping the ‘overrated’ tier is Manchester United’s De Gea. The league’s greatest keeper for a four-year spell, his dodgy type is typically known as a blip – but it surely’s been three mistake-filled years for the Spain worldwide. Weird as he approaches what must be his peak.
He is joined by Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris, who will be very good however stays unreliable, and Jordan Pickford who makes too many errors for a keeper who’s first-choice with Everton and England.
Under even that’s the world’s costliest goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, who’s been a £71.6 million disasterclass. Worryingly for Chelsea followers, the 25-year-old additionally appears to be going backwards quite than getting higher.
Increased up the rating, Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka, Crystal Palace’s Vicente Guaita and Brighton’s Maty Ryan are all categorised as ‘underrated’. These strong stoppers do not get a lot credit score exterior of their very own fanbases, whereas Nick Pope is beginning to – however nonetheless would not get fairly the reward he deserves.
The ‘good’ class sees a mixture of younger keepers with critical potential corresponding to Dean Henderson and Aaron Ramsdale. Plus gamers corresponding to Arsenal’s Bernd Leno who we have to see a bit extra of as, frankly, not all Gunners followers are totally satisfied he is higher than the departed Emiliano Martinez.
On the backside of the dimensions, we’ve Loris Karius (sure, he is nonetheless at Liverpool). No want to be unkind to a 27-year-old with (loads of) room to enhance, however the distinction between him and his substitute at Anfield is blatant. Additionally, there’s Kyle Walker, who’s extra actually ‘not a keeper’.
