I do watch them yeah, nothing to do with the stats. They just back up my own opinion on the lad. As I said, highly critical of him in past seasons but can’t fault him so far this year. He has conceded just 9 goals this season so he’s been at fault for 4 you reckon? Could have done a lot better for 2 goals to the best of my recollection, but I’m all ears if you want to name other instances. The Chelsea defence aren’t exactly rock solid with both first choice full backs missing a clatter of games and Koulibaly has looked dodgy at best. He is third in save % so I’m not sure about you thinking he doesn’t make saves Confused

You can look at that 2 ways. Yes, he may have been better off with a season in the Championship, less spotlight on him but exposure to a competitive league. But we’ll only know if that’s valid or not at the end of the season.

But Travers was the best keeper there last year and is having a worse season than Bazunu. We analyze every little detail about Bazunu’s performances because he’s our no.1, so every mistake will be highlighted.

I wouldn’t pay much attention to that graphic, Kepa is one of the top keepers based on it. 

One thing I think Bazunu needs to work on is the movement of his feet before making saves. Relies far too much on his athleticism and spring rather than moving his feet a few steps before diving.

Kepa has been one of the better keepers in the league this year. I’ve been critical of him in the past but he’s definitely come on in leaps and bounds this season. Chelsea would be lower again if Mendy was in the nets

It is also a lot easier to make a save if shot is from distance or under pressure versus players having a clear chance on goal (that the worse defences Will give up more of). You could probably put Alisson in goal for Southampton this season and he would be near the bottom 

Disagree, any of the top 5 in that list would have significantly better stats than Gavin. Dean Henderson has conceded only 3 less goals than him and is a lot better stats wise. It’s about time we admit Bazunu is having a bad season and his confidence is rocky at best. Hopefully it’s just a one-off and next season he can show his talent that we all know he has

He’s still incredibly young for a keeper! Anyone want context go look up where all the current PL first choice keepers were playing the season they were ages 20/21 which Bazunu is currently! Any of the current English keepers were operating in League 1 or 2 at best even Ramsdale was playing on loan with Chesterfield. (Raya and Sanchez included in this also). All 3 of them still young for keepers and proper goalkeepers now. 

From goalkeeper stats on the PL website a few weeks back he figures 4th in punches, 3rd in high claims, 2nd in passes as well! All hipster nonsense I know but it does show he’s doing plenty stuff okay too and more importantly is already showing good traits top teams now crave in the “modern” goalkeeper! The save thing will hopefully perk up with experience!

xGOT is basically the likelihood of any given shot on target ending up as a goal based on where the shot was taken from but also where in the goalmouth the shot ended up.

XG literally is a reflection of this.

Goalkeepers make mistakes all the time. They are more scrutinised than an outfield player. Hes in a poor side also so hes going to be under pressure even more. Look at De Gea or Allison. They are prone to mistakes and they are playing in top sides. It happens. Yes Gavan has made a few errors but you can't go dropping a keeper everytime they make a mistake. Its clear hes a good goalkeeper.

Exactly. They're only young lads coming through in the beat league in the world with a lot of media/fan pressure. Even if this season doesn't go their way they have long careers ahead of them and this experience will stand them in good stead.
 

Bazunu is just about surviving and will likely stay in the team now they have a bit of momentum! There is a chance it was a year too early for him as far as playing in the PL this season! 

Hassenhuttl showed monumental faith in him in hindsight!

Lavia coming back has made a huge difference! Will hopefully give Southampton a confidence push fine doing it in the Cups but to get that League win is huge! Confidence boost for Bazunu too!

 Delighted for Nathan Jones too Soton fans on social media certainly have turned into an arrogant bunch had completely written off Nathan Jones too soon!
