Swansea only conceded 49 goals last season, an improvement on the 54 from the previous campaign. Fabianksi found himself a mainstay in the Swansea team and was a key reason the Swans finished 8th, an improvement on the 12th-place finish in 2013-14. A sublime total of 13 clean sheets meant Fabianski conceded an average of 1.24 goals a game. One of the signings of the season.
Hugo Lloris, Tottenham
The Frenchman may not have come at the top of the list for clean sheets or goals conceded, but there is no denying his class in goal. Without Lloris, Tottenham would have been far worse off this season, with the keeper pulling off some stunning saves. His performances have caught the eye of big clubs around Europe and it could be Tottenham’s biggest coup of the summer if they can hold onto their star ahead of the 2015-16 season.
Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea
Following a successful spell on loan at Atletico Madrid last season -- in which the Spanish club won La Liga -- Courtois, has emerged as one of the most gifted goalkeepers in world soccer. It speaks volumes about Courtois that he managed to keep Czech international Petr Cech out of the Chelsea side for much of last season. And now it looks like the Chelsea legend could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge as a result. A brilliant shot-stopper and fantastic at coming for crosses, the Belgian international could be the Blues keeper for years to come.
Fraser Forster, Southampton
Southampton lost key defenders in the summer including Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and Dejan Lovren. It is a credit to Forster’s goalkeeping abilities that they have bettered their goals conceded from last season, with only 33 goals let in during the 2014-15 campaign. Forster’s impressive 13 clean sheets this season was helped by his 6ft 7in frame and makes for an intimidating barrier for Premier League strikers.
David de Gea, Manchester United
No other player saved as many points for their team as Manchester United keeper David de Gea. Following a turbulent start to his career in his first couple of seasons at Old Trafford, De Gea has grown into a world-class performer -- possibly United’s only player on such a level. His shot stopping, one-on-ones and bravery has turned the Spanish international into the best keeper in the Premier League. The Red Devils need to hold onto their best player; otherwise they could find themselves in trouble next season.
