Oblak’s impeccable clean sheet record is not only a result of having an excellent defence in front of him, but also by virtue of his own merit. The Slovenian, who recorded an astonishing 24 shut-outs in La Liga this term, uses every inch of his frame superbly. This is largely down to his footwork, as he moves adeptly both as a shot-stopper and a cross-claimer. Navas is limited in this sense: he may be fantastic at keeping efforts out, but he's often uncertain when it comes to plucking the ball from the air.
