Top 5 Goalkeepers in the Premier League at the moment
Goalkeeping is the toughest job in football as it requires a lot of concentration. A goalkeeper can go a long time without making a save and may be called into action any time in the match. There is not a single position in football where you need more concentration. A goalkeeper on his day can make saves left, right and center, and may have a match of his life.
But if you make a mistake, all those worldly saves are forgotten and the goalkeeper is slacked for that mistake, even though he might have been brilliant for the whole match. The goalkeepers never really get the limelight that they deserve.
Goalkeeping is the hardest job in football and it is even harder now. In the modern era of football, a goalkeeper has to be a good shot-stopper and also should have the technical ability to play the ball at their feet. This can be seen in Pep Guardiola's philosophy and also Barcelona's.
We are already past the halfway mark of the 2018/19 season of the Premier League and we have seen some brilliant goal-keeping displays from some players. So, without further ado, here are the top 5 goalkeepers in the Premier League at the moment.
