The Athletic analyze Nick Pope's start to the season

  • Pope has prevented 1.8 times more goals than he's conceded
  • Pope is already showing a 0.2 goals conceded per-game improvement on Dubravka
  • Pope has also shown excellent positioning. Highlighted by his save against Brighton which is nominated for Save of the Month
  • He also prevented Haaland a number of times, a feat many other keepers are already struggle to do
  • Pope has also proven to be a more proactive keeper than Dubravka. Fitting more into the mold of a “Sweeper Keeper”
