Fantasy football is one of the most loved and practiced games in Italy. Thousands of fantasy managers gather each other every year to compete for the best players in the league, and between auctions and exchanges try to create a squad able to win the league between friends. In addition to the one on Serie A, in recent years have established leagues focused on foreign championships. One of the most followed and most loved is without a doubt the Premier League, which has established itself as one of the best championships in Europe, if not the best ever, full of great champions and extraordinary teams. In this guide we will analyze the best goalkeepers of the Oltremanica Championship, among top absolute, big first-rate and possible surprises to take in auction maybe at a low price and that can have an excellent performance.

The tops to take absolutely

Ederson (Manchester City): The Brazilian is not only one of the best goalkeepers in the world for performance and characteristics. The defense of Manchester City, with Rúben Dias and Aymeric Laporte as center backs, is very rocky and allows the number 31 to be among the least beaten goalkeepers in Europe. In the first 20 games of this season, the Citizens have conceded only 13 goals, taking home 11 clean sheets with the former Benfica that was an irremovable starter of the Guardiola team, skipping only the game on 16 October against Burnley. The cost is certainly high, but the expense will be amply repaid.

Alisson (Liverpool)

Alisson (Liverpool): After the tough season last year, due to his injury and that of the defensive leader Virgil Van Dijk, the goalkeeper of Liverpool is back in style this season. The Reds are third in the league with one game less than Chelsea, opponent this day, only one point away. The Mersy team’s defense only conceded 16 goals, with 9 clean sheets on the former Roma’s account.

Mendy (Chelsea): the goalkeeper of the Blues is the third top to consider. Only 14 goals conceded in 20 matches, with 8 clean sheets for the Senegalese, who was included in the list for the Jašin Prize and then went to Gianluigi Donnarumma. Be careful though, because the number 1 of Chelsea will be involved in the Africa Cup with his national team, that is why it is advisable to take with him Kepa that, transfermarket permitting, will defend the goal of the London team waiting for the return of Mendy.

First-rate big

De Gea (Manchester United): The defense of the Red Devils is not exactly among the least beaten of the league, considering the 26 goals conceded, but the Spaniard often keeps afloat his team with essential saves in a very significant number to be the goalkeeper of a big team: he is in fact the second goalkeeper for saves made in the league. The only 4 clean sheets could be a problem, for a goalkeeper who would ensure high scores but also at least a near-safe -1. Also noteworthy are the two penalties saved in the league, against Watford and West Ham, an important statistic that brings substantial bonuses.

Schmeichel (Leicester): Speaking of penalties saved, Kasper Schmeichel is a true expert. This year he hypnotized “only” Mohamed Salah in the game against Liverpool on 28 December, but the son of the great Peter is, statistically speaking, a very good pararigori. He is also experiencing a difficult time with the Foxes, with 33 goals conceded and only 3 clean sheets, but he is always among the best of his team.

Lloris (Tottenham)

Lloris (Tottenham): The goalkeeper of the Spurs, as well as the whole team, had a real rebirth after the arrival of Antonio Conte on the bench of North London. The team has not yet lost, has suffered only 4 goals in the last 7 league games, and the Frenchman has risen to sixth place in the ranking of the least beaten goalkeepers of the Premier League with 8 clean sheets, like Mendy.

Pickford (Everton): The starting goalkeeper of the English national team is going through a difficult period in the second team of Liverpool, but his value remains undeniable. 16 games played, 26 goals conceded and 3 clean sheets are absolutely a top “business card”, especially considering the crisis that is going through Everton, fifteenth in the standings with three games to recover, but the vice-champion goalkeeper of Europe is still a valid alternative to the top of the department.

Fabianski (West Ham): The real surprise of the season in the Premier League is West Ham, fifth in the standings. The Hammers have conceded 27 goals in the league, but the Polish goalkeeper was among the protagonists, with 4 clean sheets and a penalty saved, on only two whistled against Moyes’s men.

Ramsdale (Arsenal): The Gunners are in a full recovery, they are in fourth place in the standings after many dark years and the former goalkeeper of Bournemouth and Sheffield United is establishing himself as one of the best in the league. 16 goals conceded in 17 games played with 9 clean sheets for the 23-year-old, who started as a backup for Bernd Leno but who, with convincing performances and great saves, earned his starting place.

Possible surprises

Martínez (Aston Villa): The goalkeeper Champion of America with the Argentine national team did not start the season as well with the club. Aston Villa is in fact in twelfth place in the league, with 28 goals conceded and only 5 clean sheets but the South American, who also saved a penalty to Aubameyang conceding two from Jorginho in the last game played, December 26, maybe a cheaper alternative to the big stars. The defense of the Villains will also suffer the departure of Axel Tuanzebe, expected in the coming days in Naples to join the team of Spalletti, but Martinez remains a pillar goalie that can bring good ratings, as a result of performance often of high level.

Sánchez (Brighton): With 16 goals conceded in 17 caps and 6 clean sheets, the Spaniard is certainly among the league’s surprises. Brighton is currently at tenth place, with two games to catch which, at their best, would send the Seagulls very close to the Europe area. Part of the credit goes without any doubt to the goalkeeper native of Cartagena, who has been fundamental in many games, closing the goal against Arsenal and managing to keep afloat his teams against big eams likes Chelsea, Leicester, West Ham and Liverpool.

Josè Sa (Wolverhampton)

Sá (Wolverhampton): Another team close to the Europe area is Wolverhampton, currently eighth, also with two games to recover. In the 18 games played so far, however, José Sá’s goal has been untouched 7 times, with only 14 goals conceded that make the Wolves one of the best defenses in the league. The former Portuguese Olympiacos had a strong impact on the new team, of which he is part from last summer, and has seen his value grow exponentially in recent years. The Wanderers are the ideal stage to continue a growth path that can take the ’93 class to the highest levels.

Guaita (Crystal Palace): A team a little further away from the two just analyzed is the Crystal Palace, which however found in Vicente Guaita an excellent goalkeeper. The Spaniard, present in 18 games with the London team, suffered 25 goals, saving the goal for 5 times and managing, where possible, to limit the damage against teams such as Leicester and Manchester United, as well as signing on important victories such as the one against Tottenham (3-0) Everton (3-1) and 0-2 against Manchester City in late October. Low-cost solution that could give surprises, although less interesting compared to other profiles already on the list.

The Premier League is one of the most fun and exciting championships in the world, and it is not a surprise that many fantasy managers have decided to play fantasy football with the favorites of the English public. In a sparkling football, spectacular and with many goals, it is not easy to find fantacalcisticamente attractive goalkeepers, who suffer little or nothing and have a large number of undefeated matches, but these profiles are the best that the football overseas can offer. Extreme defenders strong, with great talent, and that, thanks to their performances, can also compensate for any malus due to the goals conceded.
