Stoke City’s Jack Butland currently leads the Premier League in saves during his first full season in the English top flight.
Although they have conceded the most goals to-date, Sunderland’s Costel Pantilimon is next in line with the most saves and actually leads the league in saves per minute among regular first-choice goalkeepers.
Watford’s Gomes is the only goalkeeper of the three promoted teams to feature in the top 10.
|Goalkeeper||Club||Minutes Played||Save %|
|Jack Butland||Stoke City||1710||79.6%|
