Premier League Golden Glove winners: Goalkeepers with most clean sheets per season as David de Gea wins for 2022/23
David de Gea was confirmed as the winner of the 2022/23 Premier League Golden Glove award on May 20.
After Liverpool's Alisson conceded a goal to Aston Villa's Jacob Ramsey, it became impossible for any goalkeeper to catch De Gea for Premier League clean sheets this season.
De Gea, who has managed 17 shutouts in his 37 league appearances for United in 2022/23, has now won the prize twice in his career in England. The Spaniard has also broken the recent dominance of Alisson and Ederson, who had shared the Golden Glove between them for the previous five seasons.
The Sporting News looks back at those to have won the award every year since its inception.

What is the Premier League Golden Glove award?
The Golden Glove is awarded to the goalkeeper who keeps the most clean sheets in a single Premier League season. A 'clean sheet' refers to a full game in which a team does not concede a goal.
If more than one keeper has managed the same number of shutouts in a single season, the Golden Glove prize is shared. That happened in 2021/22, when Manchester City's Ederson and Liverpool's Alisson each kept 20 clean sheets.
The award has been given every season since 2004/05. Petr Cech of Chelsea was the first winner, managing 24 clean sheets in that campaign for Chelsea — a figure that is still the single-season record in the competition.
