Lloris? Courtois? De Gea? Who will win the Premier League's Golden Glove?

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Hugo Lloris, Thibaut Courtois and David de Gea are currently locked in a three-way battle for this season's Premier League Golden Glove and while the stats suggest the Spurs keeper is the most deserving of the award, the fixtures fall in favour of the Chelsea number one. So who will win the prize?  
At Oulala.com, we've taken a look at how the three main contenders; Hugo Lloris, Thibaut Courtois and David de Gea measure up statistically with just three Premier League games to go. 
Our stats show that Lloris has been the most active of the trio when compared to Courtois and De Gea. 

Hugo Lloris
In his 31 league appearances, the Tottenham keeper has kept a clean sheet in 48 per cent of his games (15). The 21 goals the Frenchman has conceded have come at a rate of 0.68 per match. Lloris has made 3.3 saves for each goal conceded, averaging a save every 39 minutes in the 2,735 he has played in the Premier League this season. 
With Manchester United's focus now fully on the Europa League and with Leicester City safe, Lloris' toughest clean sheet may come away at Hull City on the final day of the season, if the Tigers are still in with a chance of survival that is. 
Thibaut Courtois
With the least saves per goal conceded (2.3) and the most minutes per save made (49), the Chelsea keeper has been the least active of the three. In his 34 league appearances, the Belgian has kept clean sheets in 44 per cent of his matches (15). 
With the easiest run-in against a West Brom and Watford with nothing to play for and an already relegated Sunderland, Courtois already has one hand on his first ever Premier League Golden Glove. 
David de Gea
Manchester United's number one has registered 14 clean sheets in his 34 Premier League appearances this season (41%), conceding an average of 0.79 goals per game. Like Lloris; De Gea has made a total of 70 saves, however having conceded six more goals than the Spurs keeper, the Spaniard has averaged 2.6 saves for each of the goals he has conceded. De Gea has recorded 3,060 minutes for Manchester United in the Premier League this season, equating to a save every 44 minutes. 
Tottenham's title challenge may be over by the time Manchester United face Spurs, so a dejected Harry Kane and co. could aid De Gea's Golden Glove ambitions. United's final two opponents, Southampton and Crystal Palace, both safe and with nothing to play for, could also help his chances of picking up the prize. 
Neither Lloris, Courtois or De Gea has ever won the Golden Glove. So who's ready to write their name into the Premier League history books?
