For the first time this season, a keeper grabs the spoils.
In a richly-deserved draw, Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster has risen above the Arsenal attack to win the Premier League’s player of the week honors for Week 24.

Saints earned a point at the Emirates Stadium thanks largely to Forster’s acrobatic antics and reflex saves. The ex-Celtic and Newcastle United keeper surely had folks wondering how anyone lets a guy like this escape.
The 0-0 draw makes it four clean sheets in 2016 for the 6-foot-7 wonder, who also blanked Watford, West Brom and Manchester United.
