Height – 6.2ft

Nationality – Brazilian

Club – Manchester City

One of the reasons City were so dominant last year was because of this man in goal. His work with the ball is the same as any outfield player and often gets City out of trouble from the back. Not forgetting though, he is just as good with his hands and managed to keep 17 clean sheets in his debut season in the Premier League.

4. Alisson Becker

The Brazilian is so good that he keeps out Ederson for his national team and earned widespread praise in 2017/18 as Roma reached the Champions League semi-finals. Reliable, a fine shot-stopper and comfortable with possession the Reds have finally found the right keeper.

3. Jan Oblak

His numbers in goals are astonishing as he finished 2018 with only 36 goals conceded in 50 games. He also recently clocked up his 100th clean sheet in only 172 games. Fast, agile, flexible, focused are just some of the words used to describe him. Oblak offers no fuss or flash but he’s a keeper who grabs the ball and keeps hold of it.

The Spaniard is regarded as one of the best due to the fact he doesn’t seem to have any real weakness. With insanely quick reactions to save any shot, sublime footwork which rarely makes a mistake and confident communication it’s no wonder United trust him.

The Barcelona and German keeper is classed by many as the World number One and it’s easy to see why.

His agile, flexible playing style makes him able to reach shots flying into the top corner.
