Preston’s Freddie Woodman and Rotherham’s Viktor Johansson are both performing well in goal when it comes to shots faced this season, earning a shot-stopping score of 9.2 and 9.1 respectively. Nicholls ranks fifth on the list with a score of 9.0 while Burnley's Arijanet Muric also makes the top 10, conceding roughly what would be expected from the shots on target he has faced – with his post-shot expected goals and goals against almost equal. Sheffield United are another club hoping to get back into the Premier League, although goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has conceded -2.1 more goals than expected, an area Blades fans will hope he can improve on in the second half of the season. The table above looks at some of the key shot-stopping statistics in addition to each player’s overall score. Post-shot expected goals look at the likelihood of a goalkeeper saving a shot once it is known that shot is on target, to estimate how many goals a keeper is expected to concede. Post-shot expected goals minus goals against (PSxG-GA) therefore shows how much a player is overperforming or underperforming this season relative to their expected stats. This data was standardised and combined with the save percentage to assign an average Z-score to each player. The Z-scores were then converted into a score out of 10 to form the ‘shot-stopper rating’ with players then ranked from best to worst. *Data correct as of Friday, November 11 READ NEXT Carroll's contract, Moore's future - Four big Reading January transfer calls facing Paul Ince 'I watched the first England game in Reading pub as a football novice and now have World Cup fever' The Berkshire-born footballer representing Poland at the World Cup Reading star evacuates from hotel while on World Cup duty in Qatar Young Reading stars head for '36 hours in Paris' during World Cup break
