Wayne Hennessey was forced into make the most saves (165) during the season, despite missing the final 4 games of the season. The Wolves first choice was also responsible for conceding the most goals (73) as he side propped up the table.

Former England number 1 Paul Robinson conceded the joint-league high 16 goals from outside the penalty area with the Wales number 1. The Blackburn stopper came number 2 to Hennessey for the number of goals conceded, having been left out of the starting XI for Blackburn’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on the final day of the season.

After a slow start to his debut Premier League campaign, David De Gea ended the season with the league’s highest save percentage (77.86%) amongst regular goalkeepers. Joe Hart followed in a close second (76.98%). De Gea’s team mates Ben Amos and Anders Lindegaard topped the table for their cameo appearances during the season. Amos was the only goalkeeper to have a 100% save record; that consisted of making 2 saves in his only appearance of the season. Lindegaard kept clean sheets in 6 of his 8 appearances.

At the other end of the table, Paul Robinson (57.49%) had the lowest save percentage amongst regular Premier League goalkeepers. Jussi Jääskeläinen, who played less than half of the season for Bolton between the sticks was next with 63%, whilst Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny didn’t fair much better, saving 63.16% of shots faced this season. The Polish goalkeeper also made 7 errors; a league high.

Gerhard Tremmel and Marton Fülöp have the unfortunate stat of failing to make a single save this season in the 1 game they each played. The West Brom back up was also at fault for 2 of the 3 goals he conceded against Arsenal on the final day of the season, according to Opta. Although replays suggest all 3 were his fault.

Manchester City’s ever-present Joe Hart averaged the most minutes between conceding goals amongst regular Premier League goalkeepers. Having only conceding 29 goals all season, Hart let in a goal every 118 minutes on average. Hennessey, Robinson, Jääskeläinen and Adam Bogdan averaged a goal against them every half. All 4 goalkeepers were relegated this season.
