To make these a fair argument, these three goalkeepers have all made the same number of appearances this season and played the exact replicate minutes on the pitch.
The obvious two candidates for this debate are Rob Green at Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion’s David Stockdale, but a rather surprising contender is Scott Carson who plays for Derby County – they have all played in 40 matches this campaign and featured for 3,600 minutes throughout the course of the year.
Mentioning the stats; Carson has racked up 17 clean sheets this season, conceded 40 goals and that gives the 31 year-old a ratio of letting a goal in every 90 minutes.
That’s almost just one every match.
The veteran that is Rob Green, who will be at Elland Road for at least another year, has kept a slightly smaller number of shut-outs – a measly fourteen.
His record is conceding every 92 minutes, which means the former England international has seen 39 goals go past him into the net.
Finally, looking at the Seagulls’ David Stockdale. Currently leading the Championship, this goalkeeper has got the highest number of clean sheets at 19.
He has also let in fewer than his competitors as only 35 have beaten him. That gives Brighton’s man between the sticks a ratio of allowing a goal to get past him just once every 103 minutes.
Of course, you have the final say – make sure to vote for which club has the best goalkeeper in the poll!
Which of these three teams has the best goalkeeper; Derby, Leeds United or Brighton?
