Opta see how England's goalkeepers are faring in The Premiership.
Chris Kirkland has reiterated his desire to claim the England goalkeeping jersey for himself after pulling off eight saves in The Throstles' surprise win over Arsenal last weekend.
However, the Liverpool-owned keeper will need several more similar performances before he can consider himself a serious contender to the lowest numbered shirt emblazoned with The Three Lions.
Kirkland has been beaten more frequently than any other goalkeeper this season inside The Premiership's 20 stadiums with West Brom's 'goals against' column bulging with 16 strikes.
Amongst the English goalkeepers that have played in The Premiership this season, Kirkland currently has the sixth-best save percentage, with Tottenham's Paul Robinson saving 16 percent more shots than his England rival.
|Player||Team||Goals Conceded||Saves||Save %|
|David James||Man City||7||18||72%|
|Chris Kirkland||West Brom||16||32||67%|
