Guess who is responsible to control the defenders and give them tips where to position or who to cover – the Goalkeepers. Nowadays the role of the goalkeeper is much changed and he is expected to distribute the ball out of defence with short passes and so on, but their most important attribute remains parrying the shot that are coming at them and if possible not to concede any goals. In the list below you will find the goalkeepers with most clean sheets in the Premier League history.
