Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya is currently leading the race for the Premier League’s Golden Glove award, with ten clean sheets to his name. Despite facing tough competition from other goalkeepers such as Jordan Pickford and Ederson, Raya has managed to edge ahead in the standings.

However, David Raya faces a significant obstacle in his quest to win the Golden Glove this season. Due to his loan agreement with Brentford, Raya is ineligible to play for Arsenal against his parent club in the two fixtures they have faced each other, with Aaron Ramsdale playing in his place. This gives his competitors Jordan Pickford, Ederson Moraes, Bernd Leno, and Andre Onana, a chance to catch up in the race for the award.

Additionally, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker’s injury means he will also be unable to play and potentially lose ground in the standings. Raya’s absence in previous matches at the start of the season also puts him at a disadvantage compared to other goalkeepers who have played more games. The Spaniard missed four matches at the start of the season but still managed to keep up with the competition for the award.

Despite playing fewer matches than his competitors, Raya’s strong performances and the solid Arsenal’s defence have propelled him to the top of the Golden Glove race. It reflects positively on his adaptation to his new club and his ability to make a significant impact in a short amount of time.

Arsenal face Luton in their next Premier League fixture and David Raya is ultimately going to stand in-between the post for the Gunners. Keeping another clean sheet will take his tally to 11 and will also boost his confidence as the Premier League climaxes into the final rounds. It will be interesting to see if he can maintain his lead and come out on top at the end of the season.
