Leicester City

2-2: Sunday, 17th April

Showed remarkable restraint in the face of what must have been an overwhelming desire to flatten the ref.

Arsenal

3-3: Saturday, 9th April

A couple of uncertain moments early on but dealt with everything thrown (or more accurately “gently lobbed”) at him, especially in the 2nd half.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 15th August

Showed remarkable restraint in the face of what must have been an overwhelming desire to flatten the ref.

Arsenal

2-0: Sunday, 9th August

A couple of uncertain moments early on but dealt with everything thrown (or more accurately “gently lobbed”) at him, especially in the 2nd half.

Arsenal

2-0: Sunday, 9th August

Surprisingly only had one or two important saves to make, as his defence did a great job in front of him.

Astra Giurgiu

1-2: Thursday, 6th August

No chance with the goal and dealt with what little other threat that there was quite comfortably.

Astra Giurgiu

2-2: Thursday, 30th July

No chance with the goal and dealt with what little other threat that there was quite comfortably.

Norwich City

1-0: Tuesday, 28th July

Birkirkara

1-0: Thursday, 16th July

FC Lusitanos

3-0: Thursday, 2nd July

It would not be right to say that we'd have lost were it not for... I'm sure Jussi would have done equally as well. But the man between the sticks has to stay alert through dullish periods, and do his job when the time comes. Adrian did. And he saved the penalty and so nearly got to the rebound. Dammit!

Newcastle United

0-2: Sunday, 24th May

Aston Villa

0-1: Saturday, 9th May

Couldn't do anything about the goal, and didn't have a whole lot else to do.

Burnley

1-0: Saturday, 2nd May

Is the ninth keeper in the PL to save three consecutive penalties, apparently. No-one's ever done four. May he wait long for a chance to set a new record! Made a couple of good stops. Bar one moment when he changed his mind about coming for a cross, was otherwise faultless.

Burnley

1-0: Saturday, 2nd May

But the man between the sticks has to stay alert through dullish periods, and do his job when the time comes. Adrian did. And he saved the penalty and so nearly got to the rebound. Dammit!

Queens Park Rangers

0-0: Saturday, 25th April

One save in the first minute, one in the last, the penalty in between, and a couple of other decent stops too. It's tempting to give Burke MotM but... Naaah!

Manchester City

0-2: Sunday, 19th April

But the man between the sticks has to stay alert through dullish periods, and do his job when the time comes. Adrian did. And he saved the penalty and so nearly got to the rebound. Dammit!

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 4th April

Didn't have a lot to do, in all honesty. Brilliant penalty save, though, and unlucky not to stop their second.

Sunderland

1-0: Saturday, 21st March

Only had one real save to make. And that was going wide.

Arsenal

0-3: Saturday, 14th March

Couldn't do anything about the three goals, but stopped everything else!

Chelsea

0-1: Wednesday, 4th March

Crystal Palace

1-3: Saturday, 28th February

Blameless. Made a couple of sharp, if ultimately routine, stops; couldn't do anything much about any of the goals.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-2: Sunday, 22nd February

It would not be right to say that we'd have lost were it not for... I'm sure Jussi would have done equally as well. But the man between the sticks has to stay alert through dullish periods, and do his job when the time comes. Adrian did. And he saved the penalty and so nearly got to the rebound. Dammit!

West Bromwich Albion

0-4: Saturday, 14th February

The sort of day that goalkeepers hate - sod all chance to look good, sod all chance at stopping any of the goals...

Southampton

0-0: Wednesday, 11th February

Manchester United

1-1: Sunday, 8th February

Made a couple of decent saves, went long periods without anything to do.

Liverpool

0-2: Saturday, 31st January

Rarely called upon, this was one of the easier days Adrian will enjoy - although his command of his area remains a slight concern.

Bristol City

1-0: Sunday, 25th January

Rarely called upon, this was one of the easier days Adrian will enjoy - although his command of his area remains a slight concern.

Hull City

3-0: Sunday, 18th January

Had to be alert in the first half, especially in the first quarter of the game. In truth, though, didn't have a heck of a lot to do.

Hull City

3-0: Sunday, 18th January

One duff kick in the first hale. One good save in the second. Largely unemployed otherwise.

Hull City

3-0: Sunday, 18th January

Barely had a save to make. Which was fine, after his heroics of Tuesday night.

Everton

2-2: Tuesday, 13th January

Yes, only 6 for the hero of the night. Penalties are a lottery. Tonight, the lottery allowed him to redeem himself for their equaliser. He didn't have a lot else to do.

Everton

2-2: Tuesday, 13th January

The hero of the night, so we'll ignore his questionable positioning for Mirallas' equaliser.

Swansea

1-1: Saturday, 10th January

Not a great deal to do today bar one fingertip save in the first half from Sigurdsson. Little he could do about the goal.

Swansea

1-1: Saturday, 10th January

Nothing to do, mostly shots at the Spanish stopper and picked the ball from his net once.

Everton

1-1: Tuesday, 6th January

A quieter game than of late. Had a couple of awkward saves to make, neither of which he could hold, and a couple more comfortable.

Everton

1-1: Tuesday, 6th January

Not a great deal to do; made one good save from Barkley but there were a couple of fumbles too.

West Bromwich Albion

1-1: Thursday, 1st January

The pick of a poor bunch, again. Two great saves, little he could do about the goal.

Arsenal

1-2: Sunday, 28th December

Beaten to MotM only by Amalfitano. Showed all his good qualities & none of the bad.

Chelsea

0-2: Friday, 26th December

Notwithstanding a moment of temperament today, our best player.

Leicester City

2-0: Saturday, 20th December

Went a little too early for the penalty but redeemed himself with a stunning save five minutes from time.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 13th December

Kicking was poor in the first 20, and didn't do at all well with the penalty. However, he was generally safe for the rest of the game & pulled off a couple of very good saves to keep the scores level.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 13th December

Went a little too early for the penalty but redeemed himself with a stunning save five minutes from time.

Swansea

3-1: Sunday, 7th December

No chance with the goal, little else to do, apart from a couple of comfortable saves.

Swansea

3-1: Sunday, 7th December

No chance with the goal but his main challenge was keeping warm.

West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 2nd December

A reluctant 7, since he showed his nasty, petulant aside again. Those two very good reaction saves kept us in front, though, and his kicking off the floor was much better than against Everton.

West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 2nd December

A couple of scary moments as per dealing with aerial deliveries, but he redeemed himself with a stunning reflex save at his near post then another at the death.

Newcastle United

1-0: Saturday, 29th November

Won't sleep well tonight, having had a nap for 90 minutes. On the other hand, he's Spanish, so perhaps he's used to a mid-afternoon siesta!

Newcastle United

1-0: Saturday, 29th November

I vaguely remember one very comfortable save but he was mainly as much of a spectator as I was.

Everton

1-2: Saturday, 22nd November

No chance with either goal, one good save in the first minute, comfortable with everything else except clearing backpasses.

Aston Villa

0-0: Saturday, 8th November

Unlike Stoke, had little to do.

Aston Villa

0-0: Saturday, 8th November

One dodgy moment in the first half. One meaningful save and I swear he didn't touch the ball in the last 20 minutes.

Stoke City

2-2: Saturday, 1st November

Manchester City

2-1: Saturday, 25th October

A couple of instinctive reaction saves, and a spectacular though comfortable one from longer range. Kept us in it in the first half last week, kept us ahead this week!

Manchester City

2-1: Saturday, 25th October

Needed to be at his best. And was. Made at least three top notch saves at vital moments in the game.

Burnley

3-1: Saturday, 18th October

Unlike a few others, a seven in the first half, but a five in the second for dropping a b*llock.

Burnley

3-1: Saturday, 18th October

Apart from the first 15 minutes or so it wasn't his busiest afternoon, though, although fouled, he might have done better for their goal.

Queens Park Rangers

2-0: Sunday, 5th October

Had little enough to do, but made a good save from Austin halfway through the first half and held it. Did equally well to palm a free kick around the post at the same point in the second. First clean sheet of the season!

Queens Park Rangers

2-0: Sunday, 5th October

He'll have busier days but when required he was not found wanting.

Manchester United

1-2: Saturday, 27th September

tbc

Liverpool

3-1: Saturday, 20th September

Only had a couple of saves to make. A bit concerned at his reaction to Balotelli's niggly foul which left him only a scouse dive away from a dismissal.

Southampton

1-3: Saturday, 30th August

Couldn't do anything about the goals. Made a couple of decent saves.

Southampton

1-3: Saturday, 30th August

Let down by those in front of him. A couple of half-decent saves.

Crystal Palace

3-1: Saturday, 23rd August

Largely untroubled but solid when called upon.

Crystal Palace

3-1: Saturday, 23rd August

Couldn't do anything about Chamakh's good finish, relatively untroubled apart from that. I shall be happy to award him 6 all season long on that basis!

Stoke City

1-3: Saturday, 15th March

Norwich City

2-0: Tuesday, 11th February

Three excellent saves, but on two of them, Hooper made it easier than he should have. Which is why Tomkins beats him to MotM. Also thought he might have held Norwich's first chance on 9 minutes.

Aston Villa

2-0: Saturday, 8th February

Quick off his line again on the one occasion he needed to be, he had little enough to do, despite Villa's pressure in the last 20 minutes or so.

Swansea City

2-0: Saturday, 1st February

Little to do in the way of shot-stopping but he commanded the box well. Confidence in your 'keeper is handy for a back four.

Swansea City

2-0: Saturday, 1st February

Quick off his line when needed; otherwise had little to worry about or do.

Cork City

6-2: Sunday, 7th July
