Between the Sticks #120

ederson clean sheets

Another MOM for David de Gea and a quite ridiculous 100 clean sheets for Ederson in just 212 Man City outings.

It’s not often a goalkeeper is singled out on any network’s analysis, but we had the pleasure of two stoppers being featured on Match of the Day this weekend.

Another MOM for David de Gea was lauded by messrs Shearer and Keown, while Aaron Ramsdale’s starring show in a convincing Arsenal win over Southampton was given rave reviews by the two-man panel.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Ederson landed that coveted 100th clean sheet in just 212 Man City outings and Jonathan Pearce seemed to absolutely lose his head when remarking on a penalty scored by Raphinha and thus conceded by Edouard Mendy in Chelsea’s triumph over Leeds.

Over in the EFL, Lee Nicholls racked up 11 saves to earn Huddersfield a point against Coventry, James Shea kept his place as Luton No1 with another solid performance and the goalkeeper assist klaxon sounds again; over to Wycombe’s David Stockdale.

Aside from the action, Rich looks at top-flight clubs currently without a recognised No3. As we’ve seen with Southampton hastily signing Willy Caballero on a short-term deal last week, opting against an established back-up could prove costly.
