Pickford picks up save of the month gong

30/09/2022 4comments  |  Jump to last

Jordan Pickford has been recognised for his stellar efforts in the Merseyside derby with the Premier League's Save of the Month award for September.

The Everton goalkeeper was given the award for his acrobatic save that denied Liverpool's, Darwin Nuñez, an opening goal in the game at Goodison Park when he tipped the striker's shot from the angle onto the crossbar.

Pickford's award comes after his miraculous save against Chelsea in May was named save of the season for 2021-22.

The England stopper picked up a thigh strain in the Goodison derby, which he helped ensure ended goalless with another brilliant save at the death to deny Mohamed Salah, and missed both the Blues' win over West Ham and England's Nations League fixtures but he is expected to be back in the matchday squad tomorrow.

"Yeah, but he hurt Van Filth and wastes millions of minutes every game and always has a mistake in him."

Best goalkeeper in the world today.

I don't know if you have the same commentary over in the UK but here in Australia, the commentators were on Pickford's back about time-wasting even in the first half.

I know I'm completely biased but it seemed completely unfair. He wasn't exactly rushing but I feel like I see that sort of thing almost every game without so much as a mention from the commentators.

How does he keep goal so well with such short arms??!!

Dennis, he must have massive hands and really long fingers.
