With the brand new Premier League season set to kick off in under a month’s time we take a look at the top three goalkeepers to look out for in the 2014-15 campaign.
With the departure of Lukasz Fabianski from Arsenal, the London club, it must be said has done remarkable business already in the transfer market with Colombia’s World Cup star David Ospina making a switch to the Emirates for just £3m from French side Nice. The 25 year old will provide much needed competition to Wojciech Szczesny as last season suggested that competition tends to bring the best out of the Pole. Szczesny produced some of his best Arsenal performances when Fabianski was repeatedly doing well in the FA cup. Ospina too is a sharp goalkeeper who has the unique shot stopping ability and also has the awareness to cut out angles.
Though Ospina is not quick his razor sharp reflexes indicate he has more than 3.48 saves per game and a save success of 80.2%. Moreover he conceded less goals than Szczesny, the latter who tends to get caught in no man’s land when coming out to grab crosses. Ospina however as the World Cup showed is very good in the air and should feature in more than cup games for Arsenal. Its becoming fashion now a days for top clubs across Europe to have two specialist goalkeepers in their squad.
