One Goalkeeper Looks Set for the Premier League Golden Glove as the End of the Season Looms Near

​At the end of every season players and fans alike begin to get excited over who will win the individual awards; but this year, Tottenham's Hugo Lloris looks to be set for the golden glove.

After N'Golo Kante won PFA player of the Year and Dele Alli picked up young player of the year, eyes have begun to turn on who will receive the golden boot and golden glove of this season's Premier League campaign.

Whilst many will be focusing on who has scored the most goals, at the other end of the pitch the race for most clean sheets is hotting up.

Spurs' Lloris is currently in the lead for the golden glove, managing an impressive 15 clean sheets this season - with much help from a sturdy and defiant Tottenham back line. 

However, following closely behind the Frenchman are Manchester United's David de Gea and Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois, both on 14 clean sheets.

​​With little time left of the 2016/17 season, Lloris looks to be in the driving seat for the golden glove award. However, although the goalkeeper has impressed this season, he's only made a total of 66 saves in the Premier League, which seems like nothing compared to the 134 made by Burnley's Tom Heaton (via Premier League).

The robust work by the Tottenham back-line shines through in the few shots that Spurs have let past them, but that's not to take away from Lloris, who has turned out some remarkable performances this season.
