Awards

Vote for the best FPL goalkeeper of 2021/22

The Fantasy Football Scout end-of-season awards are up and running, with the poll for best goalkeeper open for voting in this article and on the sidebar.

We’ll be assessing the key candidates in each position in four separate articles, starting with this piece on the men between the sticks.

Overall score, points per match and value in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) were all factors we considered when compiling this shortlist – the rest we’ll leave up to you.

2021/22 CANDIDATES

AARON RAMSDALE

Cornet and Smith Rowe 1
  • Points: 135
  • Points per match: 4.0
  • Start cost: £4.5m
  • End cost: £5.1m

Despite a late run of blanks, Aaron Ramsdale is one of the favourites for the best goalkeeper nomination.

A total of 12 clean sheets in 34 starts was only bettered by those representing the top four, while just Alisson could beat him for bonus (14) across the season.

The former Sheffield United man did it all from a starting price of just £4.5m, too, hitting the ground running with three clean sheets in four appearances from Gameweek 4 onwards.

Ramsdale’s last shut-out arrived in Gameweek 29, as the Gunners struggled to cope defensively following injuries to Kieran Tierney and, in particular, Thomas Partey.

That meant the season ended on a slightly sour note but he still finished with a very respectable 4.0 points per match and will be remembered fondly by FPL managers for his performances in 2021/22.

ALISSON

  • Points: 176
  • Points per match: 4.9
  • Start cost: £6.0m
  • End cost: £6.1m

Premium goalkeepers have been unfashionable for a while now, with budget shot-stoppers like Ramsdale and Emiliano Martinez in 2020/21 popping up to offer superior value.

However, Alisson still deserves a place in our poll, having finished as FPL’s highest-scoring ‘keeper with 176 points, at least 18 more than any of his rivals.

The Brazilian shared the 2021/22 Premier League Golden Glove award with Ederson, after keeping a whopping 20 clean sheets in 35 appearances for Liverpool. He also finished top for bonus (15) among goalkeepers – something you don’t usually associate with the big guns – while 4.9 points per match was another league-leading figure among those who are a first choice.

Alisson’s popularity certainly took a hit due to the performances of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and Joel Matip, but he absolutely deserves to be in the conversation for ‘keeper of the year.

JOSE SA

The best FPL goalkeepers and defenders for a Gameweek 30 Free Hit
  • Points: 146
  • Points per match: 3.9
  • Start cost: £5.0m
  • End cost: £5.2m

Across the season, only Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur conceded fewer goals than Wolverhampton Wanderers, yet their expected goals conceded (xGC) tally was much worse, ranking 15th among all Premier League sides.

A huge reason for that overachievement was the performances of Jose Sa.

Only three other goalkeepers made more saves (122) than the Portuguese in 2021/22, while his +7.80 expected goals (xG) prevented figure is simply outstanding. For context, the best of the rest was Kepa Arrizabalaga and Ederson with +1.30 and +1.10 respectively.

Only Alisson and Hugo Lloris provided better value across the season based on points per million, and who can forget his massive 14-point haul against Southampton in Gameweek 6, when he kept a clean sheet, racked up six saves, maximum bonus, and even found time to assist Raul Jimenez’s winner at St Mary’s.

HUGO LLORIS

The best FPL goalkeepers for a Double Gameweek 22 Free Hit 6
  • Points: 158
  • Points per match: 4.2
  • Start cost: £5.5m
  • End cost: £5.5m

Another ‘keeper whose popularity was impacted by the appeal of the defenders in front of him was Hugo Lloris.

However, the Frenchman returned a clean sheet in 12 of his 27 appearances under Antonio Conte, conceding just 24 goals in that time.

Across the season, his three double-digit hauls was joint-top among goalkeepers, while only Alisson could beat him overall for FPL points and value.

The strength of Spurs’ improving defence did have its downsides though: Lloris recorded save points in just four of his final 14 appearances for the Lilywhites.

VICENTE GUAITA

The best FPL goalkeepers for a Gameweek 34 Wildcard 2
  • Points: 119
  • Points per match: 4.0
  • Start cost: £4.5m
  • End cost: £4.6m

FPL managers’ opinion of Vicente Guaita may have been soured by rotation in the second half of the season, but when simply looking at points per match, he deserves to make the shortlist.

In fact, among first-choice shop-stoppers, only Alisson, Ederson and Hugo Lloris could improve on his tally of 4.0, whilst he also fared very well for clean sheets with 11 in 30 starts.

Elsewhere, Guaita produced a very decent 11 bonus points and finished the season strongly, too, recording his biggest haul of the season – 10 points – against Manchester United in Gameweek 38.

NOT QUITE MAKING THE CUT

%d9%81%d8%b1%d9%8a%d9%82-%d8%a7%d9%84%d9%88%d8%a7%d9%8a%d9%84%d8%af-%d9%83%d8%a7%d8%b1%d8%af-1-%d8%ad%d8%b1%d8%a7%d8%b3%d8%a9-%d8%a7%d9%84%d9%85%d8%b1%d9%85%d9%89

Ederson co-shared the Golden Glove with Alisson but a lack of save points (just seven in 37 appearances; that’s fewer than Sa managed in the first 11 Gameweeks) and bonus points (four) meant that he finished some way off the Liverpool goalkeeper in the overall standings. While Alisson topped FPL’s best-value goalkeeper list (based on points per million), Ederson was down in 10th.

Robert Sanchez ended with the same number of clean sheets as Sa, a creditable 11, but he wasn’t a prolific save machine either. In fact, a total of 14 first-choice Premier League goalkeepers had a better points-per-match average than the Brighton custodian (3.4).

David Raya was a close-run thing, as he had as good a points-per-match average as Ramsdale (4.0). However, he missed almost half of the season; whilst that hasn’t stopped us from nominating Team of the Season candidates in the past (Papiss Cisse being an example), goalkeepers tend to be mostly a set-and-forget purchase for FPL managers and we felt that a mere 24 starts counted against him as a consequence.

Some memorable Double Gameweek hauls helped gloss over the fact that Nick Pope had his worst-ever FPL year from a lofty starting price of £5.5m, while in only one of David de Gea‘s previous 10 seasons has he kept fewer clean sheets than he did in 2021/22 (eight).

    I know I should give it a rest but what do you think of this GW1 draft for 2022-23 season?

    Raya (4.5)
    TAA (8.5) Chilwell (5.5) Trippier (5) Sessegnon (5)
    Son (12) Diaz (9.5) Bowen (8.5) Trossard (6.5)
    Haaland (11.5) Mitrovic (6.5)

    Bench: 4.0 Bissouma (4.5) Greenwood (4.5) 4.0

    Formation: 4-4-2

    There maybe little variation but I'm predicting this could be the template structure to start with by most involved managers.

    1. Oneman

      Looks good but I think you might be a year out on your Greenwood stats (now a mid and £7m I think)

      • bench boost for every gamew…
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Defence is nice.
        Trossard trolly, no.
        Haaland will be in every team until he gets injured in pre season or in the first game.
        Mitrovic again?

        1. HurriKane
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Any better option than Mitro for 6.5? cant see anyone else.

          Could pay 0.5 more for Toney (7.0) i guess

          1. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            I think Chilwell, Sessegnon, Son, Diaz, Mitrovic, Haaland and maybe Trippier will be more expensive.

      • bench boost for every gamew…
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Chili 5.5, probably more 6 or 6.5. Alonso gone and if he stays fit he is not 3 million lower than Taa.

        1. HurriKane
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          probably yeah. could be reece 6.5 and chilwell 6.0

      • Tomerick
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        You just know everyone’s gonna go Haaland and Vardy will end up trouncing him over the first few with an ownership of

        Pretty nice. Not tempted by Bruno G over Trossard?

        1. HurriKane
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Great shout. I think Bruno G and Wilson will form a nice partnership

      • Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Chilly will be 6 if TAA is 8 or 8.5. Sess likely 5.5 and Sam Greenwood 5.0

      • Zim0
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Very similar to something I'm thinking

        Dubravka
        Robbo Chilwell Doherty Laporte
        Son Diaz Maddison Kulusevski
        Haaland Mitrovic

      • Leaf

      I'm sure it's been mentioned many times on here but I just noticed that Pukki outscored Antonio and Toney. Considering the pre-season hype this is incredible

      1. TheDragon
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        After GW3, Antonio’s highest score was 8 points.

      2. Tomerick
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        So what you’re saying is, bring in Mitrovic?

        1. Forza Papac
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Mitrovic is pure 'too good for the Championship, not good enough for the Premier League'

    5. FPL Virgin

      How the F has Ramsdale been nominated? What an absolute joke. The author clearly doesn't know the pain of owning him 😡

      1. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        If you, like me owned him from gw4 to say around gw25 he was gold.

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          And he's the runaway leader of the poll, I can exclusively reveal. I think all the stink around forwards has masked the fact that it's actually been quite a mediocre year for goalkeepers, too. No real Pope or Martinez figure emerging from the budget pack, Ramsdale about the best of them.

          1. NorCal Villan
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Best goalie from this year? That’s like being (as sung about by the epic Drive-By Truckers) the best-lookin’ woman in B@tth0leville 😎

          For a long time he was my set and forget cheap goalie with nice stream of points.

          Presume you owned him from GW30 onwards.

          GW4-29 - a clean sheet every other game, 4.9 points per start and 117 points (third best behind Sa and Alisson)… 4.5m at the start of that run too.

          I reckon he deserves to be in.

          1. FPL Virgin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            When Ramsdale lost his clean sheet during a 5-1 mauling of Everton in a game were Arsenal had total dominance, there wasn't even the slightest flicker of surprise. The pain of owning him had made me numb by that point. The Sheffield United keeper who was allergic to clean sheets last season has shown his true colours. The only award he should be nominated for is a Razzie.

        This is from an article from a couple of weeks ago on The Athletic but I've just been catching up, a couple of interesting tidbits on Haaland and the City deal. (https://theathletic.com/3304608/2022/05/12/haaland-manchester-city-how-the-deal-was-done/?source=twitteruk&redirected=1)

        Firstly, is that Guardiola had to be convinced about signing him and it seems like he would have wanted to attempt to go for Kane again.

        "Interestingly, Begiristain did not just have to convince Haaland about the move. He had to have a word with Guardiola, too.

        The City manager had preferred a move for Kane last summer, and not just because the England captain was deemed to be the more available of the two, given Haaland’s release clause did not kick in for another year. Guardiola felt Kane would be the better fit for his team.

        Also of interest is the fact that several sources had suggested last summer that the City hierarchy did not share Guardiola’s passion for the Spurs striker. They were on board, but not all-in. One wonders whether Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s refusal to play ball was, secretly, music to the club’s ears."

        The other, is that Haaland and his camp initially preferred Madrid as a destination as they felt La Liga was a less strenuous league and so it would be less physically demanding on a player that has had missed a fair bit of time this season through predominantly muscular injuries (he missed about a third of the season). But Txiki convinced them by noting Guardiola's penchant for rotation when needed and him always having the final say over his squad and teams.

        "But Begiristain used this to outline why Manchester would be a better fit than the Spanish capital.

        Haaland has played a lot of football since his move to Germany, with both Dortmund and Norway relying on him heavily. He has missed 16 club games this season — and it was put to him that this could easily continue in La Liga because, as a “galactico” signing, he would have to play in as many games for Madrid as possible. If not, there would be pressure on the manager. In turn, there would be pressure on the club’s president, Florentino Perez.

        At City, however, Guardiola is such a strong personality that he would decide to rest Haaland if he felt it was necessary and would be able to handle any criticism that came his way over it. So if Haaland needed a rest, he would get one at City."

        I think if anyone had any ideas that he's going to play nearly every game next season they need to quickly forget it.

          Thanks Natedog, I'm surprised anyone needs convincing seeing as we've had a long time to digest what Pep does but you're right.

          When has any attacking player suddenly become 100% nailed as a new transfer for Man City in recent years? Imagine around CL games...

          Can't afford an 11m+ rotation risk.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Hmm, really interesting - thanks. I think the fact that City are still in the process of building up their fan base means Pep has a lot more freedom in terms of team selection and the like as he doesn’t get that pressure from the supporters.

          really good work sharing this. i read the article at the time but glossed over any fantasy implications.

          i'm not thinking about who i will/wont own next season at all. but will file this away for later on.

          Interesting, thanks. Makes me think even more that Salah + Son/KDB may be enough at the begining of the next season.

                  As if the company Twitter provided live updates on the cash-out offers.

                  Insane pressure on the person in order to save the company a massive payout. (In the end would have lost £ but it was an odds game.)

                  I know it's the game & that's gambling, but it's so so predatory.

                    I agree but this publicity feeds the machine.

                    She was right to refuse the early ones but the partial £25k from £100 with another £100k riding made sense to cash out.

                        Plus, even if she held out and Liverpool won the league yesterday, she still had to have Liverpool win the CL final to get the full payout

                          Who? I think there may have been cheaper ways to get some money. She may have placed live bets for MCI to win for example. Had she lost them, she could have bet Real to win in CL or cashed it out. Maybe she didn't need that 25k or 100k that badly and wanted to make history with big win.

                                She may have gotten advice in that situation.

                          I think the partial cashing out of 25k now and 100k if they win both surely would have appealed to anyone?

                        Players to target if you want to get a relegation rival in trouble:

                        1) Raphinha (Leeds)
                        2) James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)
                        3) Christian Eriksen (Brentford)
                        4) Richarlison (Everton)

                        Don't even have to sign them. Just turn their heads and keep the rumours going.

                          I don't think that Everton will be in relegation battle this year.

                          I think it's very unlikely that Raphinha will stay at Leeds, no disrespect to them but it seems like a lot of top clubs are keen on him (especially Barcelona) so I can't see him staying. Eriksen too already surely has a heap of offers on the table.

                            Rapha's agent works for Barcelona. How nuts is that?

                            None of those players are leaving for a club that’s going to be a relegation candidate though.

                              Doesn't matter. Just get the other players' heads turned. Get the rumour mill going. Destabilise them.

                              Win by weakening your opposition.

                                Yeah, if I’m understanding correctly though I just don’t get that it’d even turn their heads. Imagine being JWP and hearing Fulham are in for you (assuming Fulham are looking to unsettle him). I think he’d laugh

                                Actually think I may have misunderstood - are you suggesting in this case for example Fulham get the media to create a rumour linking him with, say, a City/Liverpool?

                                  Correct. But for JWP I would say teams like West Ham, Roma, Sevilla etc.

                            if i had to guess i'd say 3/4 of those players will be on different teams next season.

                            Raphinha > Barca, Bayern, WHU (I wish...)
                            JWP > WHU (genuinely maybe), MU
                            Eriksen > Somewhere with more ambition I bet - though I can see him staying too
                            Richarlison > Think Everton need to balance the books - can see him going (Madrid now that Mbappe didn't work out?)

                          Just a quick message to say thanks to the whole FFS team. Since joining I've had my best two seasons of FPL (both within top 100k). There have been times I've got myself a bit in a tizz as I've been taking it more seriously but mostly I've had a lot more fun using the tools and interacting with the community through it all.

                          What was the lesson of the season for you?

                          I learned that for gw 1 overthinking is bad idea. Won't get any players to be ready on my bench for future fixtures beyond gw 2 if they have sour fixtures to start with. Having Harrison (and Barnes) over Benrahma and Raphinha hurt my start of the season a lot. (Two years ago I made a mistake by making starting XI that was far too unflexible because I didn't care about price points at all.)

                            hmmm - i think that i was stuck between playing the game that the crowd thought and the game that i wanted to.
                            i did a better job last season of toeing the line between template and personal opinion.

                            so i think next year i need to be diligent in that - and be deliberate about when to do safe v crazy.

                            Lesson is (again) to stop taking so many hits to chase last week’s points and stick with good players from in form teams accepting some weeks they may not score or get clean sheet - threw away 152 points this season. Still finished 63K but could have been so much better. Sounds simple but…….

                            Very small tweaks for me at this stage. One thing I’m weighing up is whether it’s actually worth trying to sign in for late news. I think it may have set me back more than it helped this season, getting caught out with false info so may just stay away in the hour or so before deadline

                            High degree of overlap in your selections and similar start to the season with mine, including OR in the first few weeks though it took me a couple of more months to recover. I don't know what lesson I learnt other than don't pay too much attention to pre-season results (Utd looked great and I got in the community favourite Shaw) and don't feel compelled to spend big on that shiny new forward who hasn't played in premier league recently.

                            "We talked a little bit, but not too much. We talked a little bit. I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum, my mum loves Liverpool. I don’t know why, you will have to ask her. It’s a good club and we met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco I met them. It’s a big club."

                            "Of course we are interested in Kylian Mbappe, we are not blind. We like him and if you don’t like him then you have to question yourself. But, no, we are not, we cannot be part of these battles. There must be other clubs involved and that is fine. He is a great player."

                            Doesnt look like it reached at that stage...
