Fantasy Premier League Tips: Goalkeepers for Gameweek 13


Simon Mignolet

The Belgian international only have two clean sheets despite starting each and every minute for the Reds. Previous match against Crystal Palace, he had to pick the ball out from his net three times. The former Sunderland goal guardian is not completely to be blamed for their poor defensive run as Liverpool as a team has made most defensive errors in the league. Several times this season, Mignolet’s decisions have let the team down. In other words, the whole defensive unit is below par at the moment. Obviously, he still owns the first team place because there are no quality goalkeepers to shove him at the back. Not a smart choice for the dream team!


Robert Green

The England international was fairly unlucky after conceding a goal against Newcastle United in the previous Premier League match-up. After a string of stops, Moussa Sissoko’s perfect strike was way beyond his capability. The 34-year old goalkeeper has made 45 saves out of 11 matches played, yet he has only bagged in two clean sheets. It’s clear that he is not fairly shielded by his defensive mates. The former West Ham United player comprises enormous premier league experience and dedication to give his finest performances. Queens Park Rangers need to be extra composed at the back to somewhat benefit him. Upcoming weekend, Loftus Road welcome goal-shy Leicester City, Robert Green will be keen to snatch a clean sheet this time!


Tim Krul

Were they really struggling at the being of the season or just a drama? Everyone is very much amazed by the way The Toons have transformed their season. The Newcastle shot stopper has a remarkable three clean sheets in a row, adding his total to five this season. Together with his team, the Dutchman is prospering with full confidence and desire to seal the goalpost. The 26-year old goalkeeper made four decent saves against Queens Park Rangers last weekend. The towering man in goal has great reflexes and doesn’t lose his calmness when facing attackers. An ideal choice for the fantasy premier league squad!

Star Picks

Fraser Forster – Surprisingly, someone did score past him last weekend, however he still holds the highest amount of clean sheets. The former Celtic man will take on Manchester City next weekend, a tough one but he has the ability to cope with it.

David de Gea – Manchester United’s legend in the making, the Spaniard made a total of eight saves against Arsenal which included some terrific stops that earned him another man of the match award.

Lukasz Fabianski – The Poland International all he could against Manchester City but was unlucky as the final result favoured the visitors. Five clean sheets, decent choice to guard your goal.

Bradley Guzan – The USA international has four clean sheets this season and a sure starter for Paul Lambert’s side.

Thibaut Courtois – A deserving clean sheet last weekend against West Brom as he was merely troubled. Chelsea have a rather decent looking run in upcoming weeks, hence the Belgian should be aiming for more clean sheets.
