Having a good goalkeeper is always the best way to keep a clean sheet. No matter how good your defence it, you need a world class goalkeeper in between the posts in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team.

The Premier League has a few of them and it is not a surprise that Manchester United's David De Gea is the most sort-after shot-stopper in the game. He is easily the best keeper in the game and thus, will not be getting an upgrade this rating refresh.

Here are three Premier League goalkeepers who are set to get an upgrade:

#3 – Neil Etheridge

Cardiff City might be suffering in the Premier League this season but Neil Etheridge has been their shining star. The Philippines goalkeeper has saved 3 penalties in the league – more than any other goalkeeper.

Unlike the Premier League fantasy team, Etheridge is not a fan-favourite in the Ultimate Team. The shot-stopper has a rating of just 72 in the game and it's hardly a surprise that none of the teams have him in between the posts.

The Cardiff goalkeeper is now set to get an upgrade but that is hardly going to make a difference in FUT. The winter rating refresh takes place in February and Etheridge is bound to be getting one of best boosts for a goalkeeper this year.

From a silver card rated at 72, Etheridge is set for a move to a gold card. It is expected that his new card will be a rare-gold one with a rating of 77. He already has his reflect, diving and positioning stats in the 70's and those might just be pushed to 78-79 with his handling stats moving from 64 to 70.
