FPL 2023-24 – Best goalkeepers £4.5m or less


As the start of the 2023-24 Fantasy Premier League season draws ever closer, we take a look at the wide range of players available for FPL managers to purchase, picking out some excellent value options in all positions.

In this article, we focus on the best budget goalkeepers who are available at just £4.5m or less.

Jordan Pickford (£4.5m) – Everton
Under the command of Sean Dyche, Burnley were always known for their clean sheet prowess and those FPL managers who owned goalkeeper Nick Pope (now at Newcastle), profited hugely from a fantasy perspective. It would be no surprise if Jordan Pickford enjoyed similar success this season. Dyche will no doubt build the Toffees from the back, knowing that a solid defensive foundation is the first step to achieving positive results on the pitch. In Pickford, Everton already have a fantastic keeper capable of racking up a high volume of saves. With an improved backline in front of him, he should reap the rewards. At a price of £4.5m, Pickford could prove the FPL goalkeeping steal of the season.

Bernd Leno (£4.5m) – Fulham
As was the case last season, Fulham stopper Bernd Leno has been priced below the £5.0m mark, which feels very generous from a value perspective when you consider his FPL returns across the 2022-23 campaign. Leno was comfortably the highest scoring goalkeeper in his price range, accruing 142 fantasy points, including eight clean sheets and 144 saves. Only five goalkeepers recorded more FPL points than the German and with Fulham having enjoyed a successful first season back in the Premier League under Marco Silva, Leno will want to improve on those figures this time round. At an enticing price, many FPL managers could well be tempted.

Alphonse Areola (£4.0m) – West Ham
Following an impressive season as West Ham’s ‘cup keeper’, Areola could yet be chosen as first-choice between the sticks for the Hammers in the 2023-24 Premier League. The Italian was an ever-present in West Ham’s triumphant Europa Conference League campaign and drew plaudits for his performances. Even if Areola isn’t given the nod by boss David Moyes, he still represents a smart pick for FPL managers as a £4.0m priced goalkeeper, allowing those managers the budget to bring in a more premium player as their second goalkeeper, or even to use the extra money elsewhere within their respective squads.
