#4 Wojciech Szczesny

He's been consistently good

Juventus' number one Wojciech Szczesny is part of a football team that, over the years, has been known to have a world-class defence but this season, the Italian giants have been leaking more goals than usual. As a result, their Polish shot-stopper has had to work more in between the sticks.

In the 17 games he has played in Serie A this season, Szczesny has kept 7 clean sheets, while he has kept 2 in the UEFA Champions League. The 29-year-old has everything one wants in a goalkeeper - brilliant technical ability, great reflexes, and he also commands his penalty area vocally.

This season, we have seen all those qualities from the former Arsenal man and he has been highly reliable between the sticks for the Old Lady.


#3 Jan Oblak

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has been consistently making this list in the last few years and that tells you everything you need to know about the 27-year-old's quality.

The Slovenia international has kept 11 clean sheets from 24 La Liga games this season and if not for his constant world-class saves, Los Rojiblancos could've found themselves outside the top four as they are currently at fourth place, level on points (40) with Sevilla, who are fifth. He has kept 4 clean sheets from 7 games in the Champions League, with the most recent of them coming against Liverpool in the first leg of their Round of 16 fixture.

What makes Oblak different from everyone else is his immense shot-stopping ability as he can pull off saves that not many goalkeepers can. In addition, he is also considerably good on the ball, although there's room for improvement.

He is one of the best players to have ever played for Atletico and if he doesn't leave in the near future, he will go down as a legend at the Wanda Metropolitano.
