Number of saves this season: 70
It's been an indifferent season for Leicester City's Danish stopper. Despite earning hero status for his penalty saving antics in the Champions League, Schmeichel has seemed to struggle domestically.
With his defence a far cry from last season's title-winning back line, the 30-year-old has been forced to help out on a number of occasions.
Number of saves this season: 71
The league's lowest scorers also happen to have an impressive defensive record, with Boro conceding the same amount of goals as Everton and just one more than Arsenal.
A lot of that has to do with the form of ex-Barcelona stopper Victor Valdes, who has put his Manchester United nightmare behind him to reignite his Premier League career.
Number of saves this season: 72
Jack Butland's injury has meant Lee Grant's opportunity, with the former Derby County and Burnley man Mark Hughes' undisputed number one in the absence of the young English stopper.
Grant has been in fine form for Stoke City, despite only making his Premier League debut this season after he had joined the Potters on loan, a deal which has now been made permanent.
Number of saves this season: 78
Arsenal are reportedly in the market for a new keeper, with some suggesting that veteran Czech Republic goalie Petr Cech is now past it.
However, the Chelsea legend's statistics speak for themselves, with the Gunners' continued presence within the top 6 partly down to Cech's inspired performances between the sticks.
Number of saves this season: 79
Bournemouth haven't exactly struggled this season, but their second year in the top flight has been challenging to say the least.
Luckily for the Cherries, they have an experienced keeper in Artur Boruc who has demonstrated some top drawer displays for Eddie Howe's side to keep them on course to retain their Premier League status.
Number of saves this season: 80
If a goalkeeper is frequently making saves does it say something about the quality of the man between the sticks or the shoddiness of the defending in front of him?
When it comes to the case of Watford's Heurelho Gomes you could argue the latter, with the Hornets' back line in disarray for much of the second half of the season, prompting the Brazilian man-mountain to take responsibility in keep the goals down.
Number of saves this season: 81
It's been a difficult season in South Wales, with Swansea City, now onto their third manager, involved in a relegation battle pretty much from the start of the season.
Despite the changing personnel, one constant has been the form of Polish stopper Lukasz Fabianski, whose heroics in the net has, at times, kept the Swans alive.
Number of saves this season: 84
Undoubtedly one of the breakthrough stars in the Premier League this season, Jordan Pickford is unlikely to be at Sunderland next year if the Black Cats drop down to the Championship.
The young English stopper has been in outstanding form, keeping Vito Mannone out of the side, and raising his potential to atmospheric heights.
Number of saves this season: 95
Tony Pulis is rightfully credited for West Bromwich Albion's transformation into an impregnable unit at times, but goalkeeper Ben Foster must also earn some recognition for his recent displays.
The 33-year-old is always on hand to save the say if the Baggies' defence is breached, which explains how he has made almost a century of saves.
Number of saves this season: 105
The only keeper to reach 100 saves in the Premier League this season, Tom Heaton has been a wall in the Burnley throughout the campaign.
Now a regular in the England set up too, the former Manchester United youngster skippers the Clarets and most certainly leads by example with his performances.
