Premier League Goalkeepers – 2022/23 Power Rankings

As is always the case, the players scoring the goals have been the talk of the town this season, but some of those standing between the sticks trying to stop them haven’t been half bad either.

14 rounds in, here’s how we’re ranking the goalkeepers.

10. Hugo Lloris (down 3)

Hugo Lloris has as up and down as a yo-yo this season, often following up a masterclass with a disasterclass.

He was somewhere in between against Bournemouth, not making any massive mistakes but letting in two goals.

9. Robert Sanchez (re-entry)

Robert Sanchez looked back to his brilliant best against Chelsea after a somewhat disappointing run of form, ensuring the opposition only scored one of their 15 shots.

8. David Raya (down 2)

David Raya made a few good saves in Brentford’s 1-1 draw with Wolves and has been a safe pair of hands for most of the season.

7. Kepa Arrizabalaga (down 4)

Who saw this coming? Anyone?

Kepa was given a chance in the Chelsea starting XI when Edouard Mendy got injured and hasn’t looked back since, being arguably their best player.

That wasn’t the case against Brighton though with the Spaniard conceding three and making just one save in 45 minutes.

6. Illan Meslier (re-entry)

Illan Meslier delivered one of the best goalkeeping performances of the season against Liverpool, making nine saves, and flies back into our top 10 as a result.

5. David de Gea (new entry)

He made a poor start to the season, but De Gea has proved he’s still got it in the last few matches, especially last time out against West Ham.

4. Bernd Leno (up 4)

3. Alisson Becker (down 1)

Liverpool haven’t looked very good for much of this season, but their goalkeeper has.

Alisson has saved the skin of his somewhat dodgy defence a number of times.

2. Jordan Pickford (up 3)

Jordan Pickford started the season as the best-performing keeper in the league and, after a slight dip in form, looked back to his best against Fulham, earning his team a point.

1. Nick Pope (-)

If not for a certain Norwegian striker in Manchester, you could make a strong argument for Nick Pope being the signing of the season.

He’s been brilliant for Newcastle, single-handedly earning them two points with his stunning displays against Brighton and Crystal Palace.

In fact, there’s yet to be a match that he’s played in Newcastle colours in which he hasn’t looked good.
