Ronald Koeman says Fraser Forster could be one of the best goalkeepers in Europe after the stopper shone in Southampton’s 0-0 draw at Arsenal.
The Gunners created a host of chances at the Emirates, but were continuously repelled by Forster, who was playing in only his fourth game since returning from a serious injury last month.
“Not in one and a half years managing Southampton has a team created what Arsenal created in opportunities today,” he said.
“You need to be lucky, first, and you need to have a goalkeeper who is saving everything.
“Arsenal are so good defensively with a lot of creativity and that’s difficult then, of course, you need a keeper that’s magic and he is magic tonight.
“He is with the national team and he is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and maybe in Europe.”
