Sky Sports Fantasy Football – Sky Pundit Ameé Ruszkai with a comparison of England’s potential 4 World Cup keepers
With four goalkeepers in contention for England’s three World Cup spots – which one is likely to benefit your Sky Sports Fantasy Football team the most in the final few games?
Gareth Southgate will be watching all of Joe Hart, Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope closely, as they look to end the season strongly and secure a place on the plane to Russia.
All have the ultimate motivation to perform, making it an unmissable opportunity for players to tap into. But which of the four should you pick?
Joe Hart (£7.3m)
Many thought he was out of the running for the number one shirt, but Joe Hart threw himself back into contention at the weekend with a man of the match display at Chelsea.
Don’t rush to transfer in the West Ham ‘keeper though, as he faces Arsenal, both Manchester clubs and Leicester before the end of the season.
Hart will have to be in special form to be a worthy selection in Sky Sports Fantasy Football then, although he could not have greater motivation.
Jack Butland (£6.6m)
Only Wayne Hennessey (3.36) has made more saves per game than Jack Butland (3.2) this season, and the England stopper has a particularly appealing end to the campaign.
After a very difficult few games, beaten by Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham in the last month, Butland’s points return has been a disappointing eight in four games – despite two Sky Sports Fantasy Football save bonuses.
However, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Swansea are all games in which he can make up for this – even if Burnley and Liverpool present difficult tests in between.
Jordan Pickford (£6.8m)
Of the four goalkeepers, Jordan Pickford faces the kindest final five games, with Everton taking on five teams in the bottom half.
Among them are Swansea and Huddersfield, the joint lowest scoring teams in the division, and a West Ham side who only the Swans and Everton have fewer shots than per game.
Combined with Pickford’s ability, it sounds like the perfect formula for clean sheet bonuses – granted the ‘keeper’s shaky defence don’t let him down.
Nick Pope (£5.5m)
Arguably the goalkeeper of the season given his performances, Burnley’s position and his complete inexperience at this level, Nick Pope is only out-scored by David de Gea and Ederson in Sky Sports Fantasy Football.
Only the two Manchester-based stoppers and Liverpool’s Loris Karius have conceded fewer goals per game than Pope, who has kept 10 clean sheets in 29 games.
Burnley’s final run in is mixed – with Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal thrown in among Stoke, Brighton and Bournemouth.
Albeit, all six are games that Burnley can certainly win and, when considering the chance for save bonuses and clean sheets, Pope appears the man for the job when it comes to seeing out the Sky Sports Fantasy Football season.
