Donate a football kit to double a child's wardrobe in the developing world

They say you have to be mad to be a goalkeeper - and 'they' are right.

You get to use your hands, you elect yourself into a union that isn't even officially a union, you have to stand around and keep yourself locked in for most of a game.

But they're still crucial to the game. They're the ones who do the real dirty work for their sides, after all.

This week our list of the 10 best goalkeepers in the Premier League is powered by 90min's 'Football Tackles' charity of the week: KitAid.

KitAid is a charity that recycles your once loved football kits and distributes them to underprivileged children and adults in some of the world’s poorest countries. By donating just one jersey you can double a child's wardrobe, de-clutter your own, help support education and social inclusion campaigns, crime prevention, quell drug/alcohol misuse, protect endangered chimpanzees from poachers and prevent gun related gang murders.

The charity ensures that your kit donation counts and will bring happiness to many different people, projects and teams across the developing world.

It's no surprise that David Raya's return from injury correlated with Brentford's upturn in form.

The Spanish international is a genuinely brilliant goalkeeper, and is crucial to the way the Bees play.

9. Aaron Ramsdale

Who thought Aaron Ramsdale would be this good at Arsenal?

The goalkeeper has arguably been the club's most consistent performer this season.

8. Robert Sanchez

Robert Sanchez rarely makes the headlines.

Which for a goalkeeper, is a very good thing.

A consistent and reliable performer for Brighton.

7. Jordan Pickford

Would Everton have stayed up without Jordan Pickford's end-of-season exploits?

Absolutely not.

The England number was brilliant during the final weeks of the campaign.

6. Jose Sa

What a first season Jose Sa has had in the Premier League.

The goalkeeper was consistently fantastic for Wolves, and is undoubtedly one of the best signings the club has made in recent years.

5. Edouard Mendy

You'd expect the great Petr Cech to have a good eye for a goalkeeper, and boy did he find Chelsea a gem in Edouard Mendy.

Recently the recipient of The Best FIFA Goalkeeper award for 2021, Mendy has quickly established himself as one of the world's best players in any position, let alone his own.

4. David de Gea

David de Gea couldn't have been optimistic about his Man Utd prospects at the end of the 2020/21 season - backup keeper Dean Henderson was getting plenty of first team opportunities, and when brought back in for the Europa League final, missed the decisive spot kick after conceding 11 straight Villarreal penalties.

But true to form, De Gea was Man Utd's best player during 2021/22, saving them from disaster time and time again.

3. Hugo Lloris

Hugo Lloris had put his error-strewn recent past behind him to peak again at the top level.

The French captain is a leader for Tottenham's backline, and has came up with some big saves when called upon this season too.

2. Ederson

One can only imagine the euphoria Pep Guardiola must have felt when he watched Ederson for the first time in his life, knowing that this was the goalkeeper he's spent his whole career searching for.

The Brazilian may not be the greatest shot stopper but that's not as important for a club like Man City, with Ederson effectively acting as an 11th outfielder most of the time.

1. Alisson

The best goalkeeper in the world? Yeah, we'd say he is.

There's no doubting just how good Alisson is. He has the perfect mix of positioning, leadership, distribution and experience needed to be a world class stopper and he's showing no sign of slowing down.
