West Ham United's Jussi Jaaskelainen is top of the OPTA goalkeeping stats, according to latest figures.

The 37-year-old Finnish stopper, who joined United this summer on a free transfer has the highest 'saves to shot' ratio of any of the Premier League's regular number ones so far this season.

Jasskelainen's score of 82 per cent is five per cent higher than his nearest rival Simon Mignolet of Sunderland - and seven clear of Ben Foster of West Brom and Chelsea's Petr Cech, who score 75 per cent.

The former Bolton man also tops the OPTA points rating system - which is calculated by awarding points for saves and clean sheets - with 109 points.
