Alisson Becker takes on Ederson Moraes in an all Brazilian battle of goalkeepers
and Manchester City’s #EdersonMoraes
are next up in our goalkeeper comparison series (Marc-Ander ter Stegen v Jan Oblak & Hugo Lloris v David De Gea). Ederson was a key part of #ManchesterCity
2017-18 season and the #Brazilian
has carried forward his #wonderful
form to the current season. Alisson was roped in by #Liverpool
in the #summer
and he’s proved to be one of the best signings in the #Premier
But how do they compare against each other? We take a look.
WHAT THE STATS SAY
Manchester City and Liverpool have both conceded just five #goals
in the league and have kept five cleansheets in the process. This clearly does not separate the two shot stoppers. The defensive lines in front of these two custodians are of comparative quality too and one can’t argue about a favourable defence ahead of the other player.
Both the players have featured in all games for their respective clubs and the numbers concerning their shot-stopping abilities are very close.
Alisson has more saves for every 90 minutes (2.08) when compared to his Manchester City counterpart (1.58). Since both the #players
have conceded the same number of goals, the former naturally enjoys a better saves per #goal
Like always, we will take be taking the expected goals against (xGA) parameter to compare the two players on a level ground, based purely on the quality of the #chances
they have faced.
The former Roma man comes out on top when the xGA/GA (goals against) ratio is used as a parameter. The higher the ratio, the greater the possibility of the keeper stopping a shot which is most likely going in. Alisson’s xGA/GA ratio of 1.94 comfortably triumphs over Ederson’s (1.5).
