Man City goalkeeper wins award for second successive season after Mendy concedes against Leicester
Manchester City‘s No 1 has 18 clean sheets, two more than Mendy, and now cannot be caught on the final day.
While the Brazilian was beaten three times in a 3-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday, Mendy was unable to capitalise and close the gap, conceding in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Leicester City.
The bulk of Ederson’s shutouts came in a phenomenal 10-week spell between late November and early February, when he conceded just one goals in 12 Premier League matches.
He has beaten his winning total from last season, when he managed 16 shutouts.
Indeed, with a match still to play against Everton on Sunday, his tally of 18 clean sheets is the joint second-highest recorded in the last 13 seasons, only being eclipsed by the 21 of his countryman Alisson in 2018/19.
