Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was the hero once again for the Tigers on Saturday as he got down low to beat away Graham Dorrans’ penalty kick in a 0-0 draw with West Brom.
The Scotland international has been in inspired form saving his last three penalty kicks for Steve Bruce’s side with stops against QPR’s Charlie Austion and Manchester City’s Frank Lampard.
But where does McGregor stand in comparison to the rest of the Premier League era’s goalkeepers? CaughtOffside takes a look at the top 10 penalty savers, list sourced from here.
6th=) David Seaman – Penalty Saves: 7
Arguably Arsenal’s greatest goalkeeper, though they’ve had a few, Seaman’s penalty saving heroics have been witnessed multiple times over his playing career most notably against Millwall in the 1993 League Cup final when he produced three wonderful stops to win Arsenal the cup.
6th=) Robert Green – Penalty Saves: 7
Perhaps best remembered for his error against the USA four years ago, Green has an unfortunate reputation for the calamitous but on more than one occasion has shown himself to be a competent and reliable goalkeeper, such as at QPR this seeason
6th=) Tim Howard – Penalty Saves: 7
Howard actually started in his youth as a striker but was coerced into becoming a goalkeeper due to his height and strength.
Was sidelined at Manchester United for the more experienced Edwin van der Sar but has found success at Everton where he is one of the first names on the team sheet.
