WATCH: Best Premier League saves of the weekend

There were some fantastic saves on the opening weekend of the 2017/18 Premier League season, and we have picked out some of the best in our round-up.

Petr Cech was at his best to deny Jay Rodriguez early on in their 2-0 win over West Brom on Monday Night Football, tipping a low shot onto the post after Rodriguez had claimed to be brought down by Shkodran Mustafi.

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford appears in this list again, and this time it’s for a crucial save with his foot to deny Jermain Defoe with Bournemouth leading 1-0. Everton went on to turn the game on its head with Oumar Niasse’s late double securing victory.

Wayne Hennessey had a tricky afternoon at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as Manchester City hit five against Crystal Palace. However, the Wales international did make one superb stop to deny Leroy Sane.

There were two standout saves in Sunday’s fixture as Brighton beat Newcastle 1-0 at the Amex Stadium. Mathew Ryan was called into action early, parrying Mikel Merino’s goal-bound strike to safety, before a scrambling Rob Elliot kept out Solly March’s shot right on the goal line.
