While goalscorers usually grab most the headlines, those keeping the ball out of the net at the other end are doing an equally important job.
You won't win many matches if you are shipping goals at the back, while we have seen the impact top class defenders can have on teams in recent years. As the video below proves, a well executed tackle can be just as satisfying to watch as a goal.
Sky Sports have released a compilation of some the best goal saving tackles of the Premier League season and it features some incredibly heroic pieces of defending. When you consider that most of these chances would have otherwise ended up in the net, it is made all the more thrilling.
Remarkable. Hopefully we see more brilliance like this if the Premier League season resumes in the coming weeks.
