Best Goalkeepers In The World In 2021

Even if some of them are a bit, shall we say, 'different,' the correct goalkeeper can raise a team during the course of a season.


Even if it's a huge stop at a crucial time or a boost in defensive confidence, the last line of defense is critical.


Our top 10 goalkeepers in the world right now are listed here for your consideration. This season's data (clean sheets, save percentages, goals against and projected goals against) were utilized to determine our rankings, along with a player's overall contribution to the game throughout the last few seasons.


Please check out our lists of the greatest goalkeepers in history and our look at the greatest Premier League goalkeepers of all time if you enjoy this one.


1. Alisson Becker

Alisson's late late header from Trent Alexander-corner Arnold's against West Brom kept Liverpool's last-minute Champions League qualification alive. It's not often a goalkeeper's season is better remembered for a goal than a save. For the athlete who lost his father during lockdown and was unable to return home due to coronavirus restrictions, it was the high point of a tough season. The Reds' third-place finish was assisted by his late-season clean sheets, despite a long injury list at the heart of the defense. He was better than projected by 5.9 goals.


2. Ederson Moraes

As a goalkeeper, Ederson is the perfect fit for Pep Guardiola's style because of his ability to start assaults from City's own box. His shot-blocking and ground-covering abilities are among the greatest in the business. His 2018/19 stats, when the Sky Blues last won the Premier League, were comparable to his 2018/19 performance.


3. Thibaut Courtois 

Thibaut Courtois, like his Barcelona rival, had to deal with the absence of Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal, and Fede Valverde due to injury. Unlike ter Stegen, Courtois' performances did not suffer as a result of this. Real Madrid's second-place finish in La Liga was boosted by his command of set pieces and his ability to save shots with his 6ft 7in stature.
