Former Irish goalkeeper, Shay Given has named Manchester City goalkeeper, Ederson as the best in the Premier League.

Ederson got the recognition ahead of Chelsea stopper, Edouard Mendy and Liverpool’s Alisson Becker.

The Brazilian shot stopper has so far this season kept seven clean sheets in the Premier League, helping City to the top of the league table after 15 matches.

The Brazil international has won the Premier League’s Golden Glove Award for the most clean sheets by a goalkeeper in each of the last two seasons.

And former Premier League keeper, Given believes that Ederson’s ability with his feet, as well as his hands, means that he is still the best in the league.

“I’ve got a lot of time for Ederson. I go to a lot of the Manchester City games and even watching him warm up is phenomenal,” he told Ladbrokes.

“If anyone wants to improve as a goalkeeper, I’d urge them to just watch him warming up. Some of the passing, the kicking and other stuff he does before a game is just unreal. You can learn so much from him.

“Alisson is keeping him out of the Brazil team but I’d still say Ederson is probably the best goalkeeper in the Premier League.

“The standard is so high in the division with the likes of Edouard Mendy and David de Gea, but I’ve liked Ederson ever since he arrived at the Etihad.

“When Pep Guardiola replaced Joe Hart, he could’ve gone with anyone but he really wanted someone who was near enough an outfield player with the ball at his feet – but that’s taking nothing away from the talent he’s got as a goalkeeper as well.

“I watched the game against Aston Villa last week and he made a key save in that game to keep all three points for City.

“It’s easy to just compliment him on how good he is with the ball at his feet, but his saves get overlooked sometimes. It was a match-winning save he pulled off which saved his side an extra two points.

“Sometimes those moments go unnoticed come the end of the season and that’s the way of the world when you’re a goalkeeper, but he’ll know if they lift the trophy that he played a huge, huge part in them doing so.”
