Top 5 Goalkeepers De Gea Buffon Ederson
*****

Goalkeepers are truly one of a kind. The fact that they so often are overlooked when it comes to raking in the plaudits despite being absolutely crucial to a team's success and failures is quite pitiful. It's resulted in FIFA now instituting a Men's Best Goalkeeper award, which will be decided on October 23rd.

The opening two months of the league season have provided us plenty of surprises, with plenty of impressive performances in goal this season.

Here are the 5 best goalkeepers currently


#5 Ederson - Manchester City

The Brazilian became the most expensive goalkeeper in the world this summer, and has quietly begun to repay the faith Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have placed in him. Ederson has been a huge improvement over Claudio Bravo, with his immediate adjustment to the Premier League being a huge bonus.

Ederson has already shown that he's not afraid of the Premier League's physicality, with the Brazilian already on the wrong end of Sadio Mane's studs in his face. He's back with a skull helmet, but that has barely affected his assured performances so far.

Pep Guardiola's entire strategy around bringing in Claudio Bravo last season was distribution, and with an accuracy of 87% so far, Ederson is one of the best in world football. 3 cleans sheets out of the 6 games he's played so far are a promising base to build around.
