Goalkeeper Ratings 2013

These ratings are based only on a goalkeeper’s “saves ability,” as opposed to other skills such as distribution, cutting off crosses, and leadership. Keepers were measured by the differences and ratios of their goals allowed to their expected goals allowed, derived only from shots on frame. Below one can find the top 15 goalkeepers by this metric (among those that faced at least 25 SOG in 2013), as well as an Excel file with all the data.
