19 weeks into the season and I’ve finally hit breaking point. My personal team had two Man United defenders in Shaw and Lindelof, both with a 60% chance of a clean sheet, a City goalkeeper, 49% and a Wolves and Chelsea defender. My whole defensive unit garnered a whopping 10 points from 5 players.
In gameweek 20 there is only one side which has over a 50% chance of a clean sheet, and with Poch insistent on rotation you’re not sure who to bring in. With United keeping one clean sheet in their last 15, and City keeping one clean sheet in their last 9 matches, its a wonder why people just haven’t stockpiled Liverpool assets. Liverpool have kept 12 clean sheets in 19 Premier League appearances.
We’re half way through the season and one thing is for certain, Arsenal, 3 clean sheets, and United, 2 clean sheets, should not be in your side for defensive points.
In contrast to last season, Brighton have only kept 3 clean sheets and Burnley have only kept 4. Spurs and Leicester look good for clean sheets this week, Southampton and Arsenal do not. Find below the Clean Sheet Probabilities in Gameweek 20.
