With Shearer and Henry at the lead, the Premier League's newly-formed Hall of Fame welcomed its first inductees a few months ago. The league has recently issued a 23-man shortlist to join Shearer and Henry on the list of heroes, albeit the list only contains one goalkeeper, a position that is frequently ignored when debating the game's greats. Goalkeepers are the building blocks when it comes to defence. Currently, the summer transfer window is on and soon the club football will be in full swing.

In honour of the Premier League's greatest goalkeepers, we've decided to rank some of the best shot-stoppers the division has ever seen:


Peter Schmeichel

Schmeichel was the terrifying final line of protection for the Premier League's most formidable presence, with Sir Alex Ferguson's team winning five of the first seven league titles in the renamed top flight. During his eight seasons as a Manchester United player, he won five league titles, three FA Cups, and the Champions League, playing a key role in the club's historical treble-winning year in 1998/99.


David Seaman

Seaman was a key part of Arsenal's achievements in the English League's first decade, winning several cup competitions and two national doubles with the north London club. Seaman was a dominant goalkeeper with excellent shot-stopping ability, proving to be the best English goalkeeper of a promising generation. In total, he made 564 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions, ranking fourth among goalkeepers in terms of Premier League clean sheets.


Petr Cech

Petr Cech has the most Premier League clean sheets of any goalkeeper in history, with no one even inching close to the former Chelsea and Arsenal number one. Petr Cech joined Chelsea from Rennes in 2004 and soon established himself as a major member of England's new formidable presence, winning the Premier League title in his debut season with a Premier League record 24 clean sheets and an all-time low of only 15 goals conceded. Cech was a key member of the Chelsea club that won the Champions League for the first time in 2012, and he also managed to keep 100 clean sheets in 180 appearances.


Edwin van der Sar

The Netherlands international played four seasons with Fulham until Manchester United approached him after a string of transfers failed to replace Schmeichel. Van Der Sar spent six years at Old Trafford, capturing four Premier League titles and a Champions League winner's medal. During the 2008/09 season, he set a new world record by playing 1,311 minutes without allowing a goal past him. 


Ederson

The Brazilian arrived from Benfica in a big-money transfer in 2017 which has been a game-changer for Manchester City in the seasons following, a shot-stopper so supremely gifted with the ball at his feet that he is regarded as one of the Premier League's greatest passers. Ederson was a key member of Pep Guardiola's team who won the Premier League with a record-breaking 100 points in 2017/18, then went on to win a historic domestic treble the following season.
