Jordan Pickford has picked out Manchester United’s David De Gea and Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris as the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

The Spain international has won Manchester United’s player of the year in the past three seasons to highlight his continued importance to the Red Devils.

Lloris, meanwhile, has been one of the top-flight’s most-consistent goalkeepers since swapping Lyon in a big-money deal for Tottenham in 2012.

Sunderland have arguably the most-exciting goalkeeping prospect in their ranks in the shape of Pickford, who has been impressive for the relegation candidates.

And the England prospect has named De Gea and Lloris as the two best Premier League goalkeepers.

“I’d have to say De Gea or Lloris. They’re both top drawer. Lloris is rapid and has incredible reactions. And you only have to look at the save De Gea made from Hazard against Chelsea down to his right,” said Pickford, speaking exclusively to EA Sports.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper has made just 25 appearances in all competitions for the Black Cats in his blossoming career so far.

Sunderland have struggled under new manager David Moyes and the Stadium of Light outfit are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.

Pickford is still waiting to make his senior England debut.
