Fraser Forster: Has starred for Saints since return

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.”
