Fantasy Premier League Tips: Five Budget Friendly Goalkeepers To Sign

With the Premier League season on the horizon, world class shot stoppers including Ederson and Alisson Becker will feature prominently in a large number of Fantasy Premier League squads.

Considering Ederson and Alisson are rather good at keeping the odd clean sheet or two - imperative to achieving FPL success - that comes as no surprise, either.

Before Brentford take on Arsenal in the first game of the season on Friday, managers will be in the process of picking the first choice goalkeeper ahead the opening gameweek, but which 'keepers provide the most value?

The initial price list for goalkeepers in FPL makes it hard to see where you might spend your money if you are trying to use as little of your £100m budget as possible.

And looking at those cheap enablers who can supplement guaranteed points for your team is easier said than done.

Fear not, though, as SPORTbible takes a look at five budget-friendly 'keepers - all valued at £4.5m or below - who are worthy of consideration as Gameweek 1 approaches.

Robert Sanchez comes in at a very generous £4.5m and has the second-highest ownership behind only Aston Villa's Emiliano Martinez.

The Brighton & Hove Albion shot-stopper came into contention from Gameweek 13 and continued to excel through to the end of the season.

This time around, the Seagulls' opening fixtures are very favourable for the first eight and are, arguably, the best opening games from any team.

Price: £4.5m

Vicente Guaita has been a reliable keeper over the years for Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The Spaniard has been priced at £4.5m this season, despite coming in at £5.0m for the last two years.

The 34-year-old has been a solid points scorer during that time and seems like another decent value option, especially considering his slashed price.

Price: 4.5m

Daniel Bachmann (Watford)

Watford were the best defensive side from the promoted teams - and for good reason, too.

They conceded the least goals in the Championship last season (30) and also kept the most clean sheets (23).

And after Daniel Bachmann's stellar performances for Austria during this summer's Euro 2020, we're backing the the 27-year-old to continue his fine form between the sticks.

Martin Dubravka (Newcastle United)

Since joining Newcastle United in 2018, Martin Dubravka has been one of the Magpies' most consistent performers.

He earned 11 save points in his 13 appearances last term, in addition to three clean sheets and six bonus points.

And while Newcastle's defensive numbers remain a concern, the Slovakia international's 3.29 saves per 90 minutes, could see him as a very shrewd purchase, indeed.

Price: £4.5m

David Raya (Brentford)

Brentford arrive in the Premier League with the worst defensive record of all three promoted teams, having conceded 42 goals last season.

However, they didn't concede a lot of quality chances. In fact, they had the lowest expected goals conceded total in the entire division.

Brentford number one 'keeper in David Raya could, therefore, offer value - though the Bees' ability to control matches will be tested in the world's toughest league.

Price: £4.5m
