Liverpool No 1 becomes only fifth ‘keeper to record 20 clean sheets in a Premier League season

In his first season in the Premier League, Alisson has already joined an elite group of goalkeepers.

By shutting out Huddersfield Town in the 5-0 win on Friday night, the Liverpool No 1 became only the fifth goalkeeper to record 20 clean sheets in a PL season.

Indeed he is the first to do so since Pepe Reina and Edwin van der Sar 10 years ago.

Van der Sar MUN 2008/09 21
Schmeichel MUN 1994/95 20

Goalkeeper Club Season Clean sheets

The Brazilian is no longer able to catch the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in a season, Petr Cech, with 24 for Chelsea in 2004/05, but another shutout would take him past Reina's club-record mark for Liverpool, which he has equalled.

Another clean sheet in either of Liverpool’s two remaining matches would also earn Alisson at least a share of the 2018/19 Golden Glove.

Alisson is two ahead of the 18 clean sheets kept by Manchester City’s Ederson, who must stop Burnley scoring on Sunday to have a chance being the outright winner.
