Premier League

Outfield players who were forced to don the goalkeeper gloves

John Terry- Chelsea( 2006)

Inside an often bizarre game, both Cech and Carlo Cudicini were hurt during Chelsea 's Premier League trip to Reading.

Mr Chelsea stepped ahead when John Terry came on to make an effort to help his part win away at home.

They delivered as time passes to maintain a clean sheet and seal the 1- 0 victory for that Blues. Two injured goalkeepers, two sent- off players, and a fantastic backup goalkeeper.

Kyle Walker- Manchester City( 2019)

Manchester City stayed in Atalanta for a long Champions League staff game in November 2019, when substitute keeper Claudio Bravo was sent off for a final foul on Josip Ilicic because the score approached the very last whistle Bale.

Indoing so, he became the first alternative goalkeeper to be sent off in the Champions League, and with Ederson already out with a muscle injury, Guardiola switched to Kyle Walker.

TheBritain international 's priority was going to stop Alejandro Gomez 's free- kick and that 's precisely what this individual did, although it 's safe to say it was not the most convincing save.

However, the save was actually the England keeper 's first in the game in three years, while he also kept a clean sheet- although he must be grateful to his Manchester City teammates, who did a great job in the next few minutes. Maintain the ball inside.

Rio Ferdinand- Manchester United( 2008)

Sir Alex Ferguson 's Manchester United dominated British football in 2008 as they aimed for a treble.

Edwin van der Sar had to leave the field through damage in the FA Cup one fourth- final against Portsmouth at Old Trafford, while his alternative Thomas Kushzak got a red card Down, Portsmouth left the pitch as they prepared for their penalty.

Rio Ferdinand arrived on as well as entered United 's goal only to have to manage Sully Montari 's penalty. In spite of guessing the right way , Montari kicked the penalty to Ferdinand.

United went on to lose 1- 0 to ultimate cup winners Portsmouth, failing to win the treble. However, they did win the Premier Little league and Champions League double, so not bad...

HenryLansbury- West Ham( 2012)

West Pig and Blackpool. The two groups will go on to meet in the Championship play- off final in May, with West Ham beating Ian Holloway 's side 2- 1.

Nevertheless, Hammers goalkeeper Robert Green was sent off for a bad on Roman Bedner during a league game at Bloomfield Street earlier this season.

With Western Ham at 2- 1, the red card did potentially have to ruin the travelling supporter 's day, with only former Toolbox youth player Henri Lansbury taking Green 's place.

Aruling during the time meant the Championship club could only have five substitutes, and, with Sam Allardyce reluctantly declining to visit north with a book goalkeeper, Lansbury came to electric power.
