EPL stats: Goalkeepers with most clean sheets in 2022-23 Premier League season

It goes without saying that goalkeepers are one of the most underrated players on a football pitch. While goal scorers and goal creators take most of the credit, the keepers’ contribution to the match goes unnoticed. Shot-stoppers save their teams from several tricky situations by producing many noticeable performances in between the sticks. However, they hardly get praised for those saves. Instead, when a goalkeeper makes one mistake that leads to a goal, the entire world turns up to criticise them.

A striker or a midfielder can get away with making a mistake, however, the same cannot be the case for a goalkeeper. A small mistake can cost his team big time, hence the level of expectations from a shot-stopper is sky high. Their brilliant saves do not get due credit, however, their big blunders are highlighted massively. This is why consistency is the key for a goalkeeper and a team that has a reliable shot-stopper in their ranks always has a good chance of claiming success.

Goalkeepers with most clean sheets in 2022-23 Premier League season

The current Premier League campaign has reached the business end of the season, hence every game becomes important for one reason or another. With a lot still left to fight for in this campaign, it is time to take a look at the shot-stoppers who stood tall for their respective teams. The goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in 2022-23 league season till now is Manchester United’s David De Gea. The Spaniard leads the chart with 14 shutouts.

De Gea has had his critics over the years but there is one thing he can never be criticised about is his shot-stopping ability. He has been able to consistently maintain a high level for Manchester United for several years. Even during the most difficult times for the club, the Spaniard has alone stood stall at the back. Despite United suffering some embarrassing defeats this campaign, it is simply phenomenal to see their goalkeeper De Gea top the clean sheets chart.

Tight battle for top spot

Second in the list is Newcastle United shot-stopper Nick Pope. He is just one behind David De Gea at 13. Newcastle have been supremely impressive this season and one of the hallmarks for their success is a strong defensive base. Hence, it is not surprising to see their keeper placed second in the table. Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is third in the list with 12 clean sheets to his name. He has played a crucial role in helping the Gunners punch above their weight this season. Read the list below to find out more about the goalkeepers with most clean sheets in the 2022-23 Premier League season so far.
