England goalkeeper is the best for goalkeepers, Mendy is struggling, Ward is sad

Jordan Pickford has denied his opponents more goals than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League. Perhaps Leicester was swinging over Kasper Schmeichel’s decision.

Jordan Pickford has started the season wellWhere he stopped last season. The Everton goalkeeper has the best PSxG – GA number in the Premier League.

What does this mean, you ask? PSxG +/- is the number of goals the goalkeeper conceded minus the goals expected against his team. The xGA of Everton is 9.4; Pickford only waived six players, giving him a score of +3.4.

Robert Sanchez was also appearing Why do we call him Chelsea?while Edward Mendy also showed why we would nominate Sanchez for Chelsea.

Nick Pope cements his place in the England squad, while Aaron Ramsdale and Dean Henderson conceded more than expected.

Leicester chose not to sign a goalkeeper to replace Kasper Schmeichel in the summer, and Brendan Rodgers may curse that decision while watching Danny Ward fall past the Foxes.

Manchester City’s Ederson conceded a goal for every other shot he encountered on goal, while Neto proved his clever signature with the Bournemouth goalkeeper who started his career in the Premier League with the highest savings percentage.
