Sanchez nominated for Premier League award

Robert Sanchez has been nominated for the Premier Leagueís Castrol Save of the Season Award.


The Blues goalkeeperís impressive stop against Aston Villaís Nicolo Zaniolo from September has made a nine-save shortlist from across the season.

From a well-worked Villa set-piece, Boubacar Kamara headed a Villa corner back into danger and found Zaniolo eight yards out.

The Italianís strike looked a certainty to hit the net, catching the volley with real power, but Sanchez produced an exceptional piece of goalkeeping, somehow reacting to tip the ball over the crossbar at the Matthew Harding end.

The stop has already claimed Septemberís Save of the Month crown, Sanchez becoming the first Chelsea stopper to win that award since Kepa Arrizabalaga claimed the prize in October 2022 - also for a save against Aston Villa.

The other nominees making up the shortlist are:

  • Liverpoolís Alisson in the 2-1 win over Newcastle

  • West Hamís Alphonse Areola in their 4-1 defeat to Aston Villa

  • Lutonís Thomas Kaminski in a 2-1 win against Crystal Palace

  • Sheffield Unitedís Wes Foderingham in a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool

  • Evertonís Jordan Pickford in the goalless draw with Fulham

  • Brentfordís Mark Flekken in their 2-0 win over Wolves

  • Nottingham Forestís Matz Sels during a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool

  • Manchester Unitedís Andre Onana in a 1-1 draw with Burnley
