We got to witness Paulo Gazzaniga in the 0-2 win over Arsenal last night and the Argentine looked the part of a third-choice keeper.
Hugo Lloris is still the uncontested number one keeper but it is due time Mauricio Pochettino introduces some competition for the spot. The Frenchman’s promised starting spot has not helped him to improve in his craft despite having the potential to become one of the world’s very best.
If we are strictly looking the local market, Southampton’s Alex McCarthy has been outstanding in between the sticks this season and is drawing considerable attention from other clubs. At 29, he has been handed his first cap for the England national side and has a contract with the Saints till the summer of 2022.
Tom Heaton used to be Burnley’s club captain but is now the third choice behind Joe Hart and Nick Pope. The 32-year-old could assist Tottenham in cup games but his recent dip in game time could be a concerning factor.
