15. Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester)

Save percentage: 67.2%, Total saves: 86, Clean sheets: 7

Leicester's player of the year for 2016/17 hasn't been at his best in recent weeks, with the Danish custodian failing to keep a clean sheet in his last five appearances. He has shut out opposition strikers in seven games this term, though, and made 2.05 stops per goal conceded.

14. Julian Speroni (Crystal Palace)

Save percentage: 67.4%, Total saves: 29, Clean sheets: 2

Club legend Speroni returned to Premier League action earlier this campaign, playing 11 games between mid-October and the end of December. The long-serving Crystal Palace custodian only kept his sheets clean twice in that time, but his record of 2.07 saves per goal conceded is marginally better than team-mate Wayne Hennessey's.

13. Adrian (West Ham)

Save percentage: 67.6%, Total saves: 50, Clean sheets: 4

David Moyes made a big call when he dropped England international Joe Hart for Adrian shortly after taking charge at West Ham, but his decision has been vindicated by the Spaniard's subsequent showings. The former Real Betis No.1 has stopped 2.08 shots for every goal he's let in this term, as well as making a total of 50 saves.

12. Rob Elliot (Newcastle)

Save percentage: 67.7%, Total saves: 44, Clean sheets: 3

Rafael Benitez has used three different goalkeepers in 2017/18, with Elliot handed the gloves for 16 of Newcastle's 29 Premier League outings. The Republic of Ireland international has made 44 saves, conceded 21 goals and kept three clean sheets in his 1,440 minutes on the pitch.

11. Jack Butland (Stoke)

Save percentage: 67.8%, Total saves: 99, Clean sheets: 5

With Joe Hart struggling for game time at West Ham, Butland has emerged as a strong contender to start in goal for England at this summer's World Cup. The Stoke shot-stopper has, for the most part, performed well in a struggling side this season, making 99 saves - only one top-flight goalkeeper has denied opponents more often - at a rate of 2.11 per goal conceded.

10. Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea)

Save percentage: 67.9%, Total saves: 55, Clean sheets: 13

Courtois has looked a little shaky during Chelsea's recent downturn in form, but he remains one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. The Belgian has made 55 saves and conceded 26 goals in 2017/18, and his record of 13 clean sheets is bettered by only one of his peers.

9. Loris Karius (Liverpool)

Save percentage: 68%, Total saves: 17, Clean sheets: 5

Karius hasn't completely dispelled the doubts over his suitability to the No.1 role at Anfield this season, but he's certainly made steps in the right direction. The German has been much improved in his 10 Premier League appearances in 2017/18, keeping five clean sheets and making an average of 2.13 saves per goal conceded.

8. Fraser Forster (Southampton)

Save percentage: 69.1%, Total saves: 67, Clean sheets: 4

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino dropped Forster after a perceived run of poor form in December, but the statistics suggest the ex-Celtic man hasn't performed that badly this campaign. Only six goalkeepers boast a better record than Forster's 2.23 saves per goal conceded, while his average of 3.35 stops per 90 minutes is higher than most of the division's custodians.

7. Karl Darlow (Newcastle)

Save percentage: 69.4%, Total saves: 34, Clean sheets: 2

Darlow has been on the bench for more games than he’s started in the Premier League this season, but his 10 appearances between the Newcastle posts have featured two clean sheets and 34 saves. The Magpies shot-stopper let in 15 goals in those outings, which means he averages 2.27 interventions per strike conceded.

5= Ederson (Manchester City)

Save percentage: 69.7%, Total saves: 46, Clean sheets: 13

Ederson’s composure in possession and long-range passing have caught the eye this season, but he’s also excelled when it comes to more conventional goalkeeping duties. The Brazilian has conceded only 20 goals and made 2.3 saves for every strike that’s beaten him, while 13 clean sheets is the joint-second highest in the division.
