Here are the statistics for every goalkeeper to have made at least one appearance during the 2015-16 Premier League season:
47 goalkeepers in all made an appearance; two more than last season.
Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel was the only goalkeeper to have played every minute for their team this season. Watford’s Gomes was the only other goalkeeper to start every game, but the Brazilian missed the final 23 minutes of their 3-2 win at Aston Villa at the end of November.
10 goalkeepers kept at least nine clean sheets during the season, with Arsenal’s Petr Čech coming away with the Golden Gloves award in his first season at the Emirates. Manchester City’s Joe Hart won this award with 14 clean sheets in 2014-15.
