EPL: Nick Pope moves ahead of Alisson in Golden Glove race

1 Mins read

Burnley Goal keeper, Nick Pope is now the outright leader in a hotly-contested race for the Premier League Golden Glove award after keeping his 13th clean sheet of the season on Monday night.

The Burnley goalkeeper has kept shutouts in successive 1-0 wins over Watford and Crystal Palace to move one ahead of Liverpool’s Alisson, who is aiming to win the award for the second consecutive season.

Having got the better of Palace ‘keeper Vicente Guaita, who is now three behind him on 10 clean sheets, Pope will next face against another man in the running for the Golden Glove, which is presented by Cadbury.

Dean Henderson, who has 11 clean sheets, will travel to Turf Moor with his Sheffield United team-mates on Sunday.

One of the biggest threats to Pope is Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Rui Patricio, who has kept seven clean sheets in his last eight matches.

Alisson, who has already secured a Premier League winner’s medal, faces a tough test as he seeks to move level with Pope again and earn another prize.
