Man City star closing in on new PL record but Man United ace could stand in his way

It may seem like only yesterday the 2015/16 Premier League campaign kicked off but we’re now less than two months away from its conclusion.

And alongside the small issue of the Premier League title is the matter of the individual accolades – the PFA Player of the Year award, the Young Player of the Year award, the PFA Team of the Year and of course, the Golden Glove.

The Golden Glove award goes to the Premier League goalkeeper who has claimed the most clean sheets and as you can see from the table below – courtesy of our good mates at Oulala.com – Manchester City No.1 Joe Hart is on course to claim this season’s.

The England international is already the Premier League’s Golden Glove record holder following its introduction at the end of the 2004/5 campaign, but could extend his record to a whopping five come the end of May.

But Manchester United’s David De Gea, Arsenal’s Petr Cech, Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel are firmly in the mix as well.

Rather worryingly for Hart, the table-topping Foxes have kept five clean sheets in their last six games, whilst Spurs and United have conceded the fewest and second-fewest goals respectively of any Premier League side this season.
