Julio Cesar may have come to the Premier League for just one season especially at the age of 34. But unfortunately his team QPR have been relegated last season. But he was quite able to show the type of goalkeeping that has won him League titles and cups in Italian Serie A.

Even with his team relegated, he was a real team player. He kept 6 clean sheets over the season and playing for QPR this is extremely good as being one of the most valuable English Premier League Goalkeepers in 2016.

The age old Premier League veteran, Jussi Jaaskelinen is another well-known goalkeeper. He is currently the 7th in this list of top 10 English Premier League Goalkeepers in 2016. This campaign has only enhanced his reputation by pulling off some world class saves for West Ham.

And most obviously he had a good season with 11 clean sheets in 2015-2016. He makes 5.11 saves a game on average. Definitely this just shows that he can still make important saves at crucial times even at his old ages of 38.

Although Tim Howard is one of our pick as top 10 most valuable Premier League goalkeepers in 2015-2016, he has achieved only 9 clean sheets. Yes, of course this is not bad, but still a player like him worth a little more I believe. At least a bit better can be expected from the American National Team goalkeeper in Premier League.

Hopefully he will be ending this season with some more exquisite saves and world class goalkeeping.

For the last 10 years Reina has been at Liverpool. Undoubtedly he was the number one choice for Liverpool at his time. We can imagine how consistent a goalkeeper needs to be as being a part of 10 consecutive seasons in a single team. This was totally impressive. As a matter of fact he was to move very certainly for more world class performance.

He had 13 clean sheets over the course of the last season. He was considered the 5th choice as most valuable goalkeeper in EPL 2015-2016. This top class goalkeeper still has an average of 4.17 saves per match, which is quite unbelievable.

Lloris have joined Tottenham in the summer of last year. May be he was not at his best performance but eventually he was found getting thing straight clean. Definitely he has got his turn with 8 clean sheets in only 24 games last season. This probably explains a lot about his price tag and our evaluation as one of the most valuable English Premier League Goalkeepers in 2016.

And of course he was a world class goalkeeper before joining the Barclays Premier League. We all can appreciate his efforts to match up with a very new world class Premier League.

Petr Cech has been a very important player throughout the last season undoubtedly. He has made well over 5 saves per game on average and he also has had 14 clean sheets in 2015-2016.

David De Gea really stepped up last season. Oh, another noticeable thing is that he has physically gotten stronger. And his confidence has grown since his shaky first start in English Premier League.

Manchester United have only lost 5 games this season and that comes as no real surprise as De Gea has been pulling off some unbelievable saves for the team. He has so far managed a decent 11 clean sheets while making 4.37 saves per match. I think its good enough for a young fella like him.

01. Joe Hart – Manchester City F.C.

Of course this is the one name that wipes out all other possibilities of other names to be found at the first position of Top 10 most valuable English Premier League Goalkeepers in 2016. He is the only other 26 year old on this list and has had his fair share of disastrous moments. But he always seems to battle back with his talent.

Most of the times he is found to be gaining some extra lift from somewhere during big games. He is undoubtedly the number one goalkeeper in England. He has had managed 17 clean sheets last season. Although Man City finished the season second, Joe Hart continues to grow and produce results..
