We’re playing FanTeam’s £1million Premier League Fantasy game this season. We’ve picked out five goalkeepers, at different price points, that you might want to consider signing for your side.
5. Robert Sanchez (£4.5m)
If you are looking for value for money, then look no further than Brighton’s shot-stopper who is a guaranteed starter and will cost you a mere £4.5million.
Sanchez kept 10 clean sheets in his 27 starts for Brighton last season. The Seagulls were tight at the back as they only allowed 107 shots on target against them; only Chelsea and Man City managed fewer.
4. Jordan Pickford (£5m)
After winning the golden glove at Euro 2020, Jordan Pickford is in the form of his life and if he’s able to translate that into his performances for Everton, he could be a strong pick at £5million.
With Rafa Benitez likely to lean towards his pragmatic approach, Everton might be able to rack up the clean sheets this time around.
3. Illan Meslier (£5.5m)
Leeds’ defence improved significantly as the season went on and if that trend is set to continue, Meslier could turn out to be a nice pick.
Last time around, he was one of only four Premier League goalkeepers to make over 130 saves and so was able to pick up a bunch of bonus points. He also kept 11 clean sheets and will no doubt be a popular pick again this year.
2. Emi Martinez (£5.5m)
The majority of fantasy managers had Martinez in their team last season, and although his price has gone up, he’s still going to be one of the best keepers in the game.
He had the second-highest save percentage of any Premier League goalkeeper at 76.8% and also made the third most amount of saves with 135. If his heroics during Argentina’s Copa America win this summer are anything to go by, he’s only going to get better.
1. Edouard Mendy (£6m)
When Thomas Tuchel arrived in London, the improvement to Chelsea’s backline was obvious to see as they conceded just two goals in his first 10 games in charge.
Mendy of course benefitted from this as he was able to keep 16 clean sheets throughout the season. With Tuchel’s rigid defensive system in place from the get go this time, Mendy could be well in with a chance of picking up the golden glove as well as a bunch of fantasy points.
