MARTINEZ, KING OF PREMIER LEAGUE GOALKEEPERS
Aston Villa shot stopper Emiliano Martinez is the reigning king of Premier League goalkeepers in fantasy football after finishing with the most points at the end of the 2020/21 campaign. The Argentine international had more fantasy football points than any other Premier League goalkeeper during the recently finished season despite having fewer clean sheets than Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and Ederson Moraes of Manchester City.
Martinez has enjoyed a rapid rise in the last one year after he took his opportunity at Arsenal following the knee injury to first choice Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno towards the end of last season. He stepped from his previous position as the number two Arsenal goalkeeper to play an important role in the Gunners’ FA Cup title at the end of last season. He was also in the Arsenal goal when they won the 2020 Community Shield via penalties.
