How do goalkeepers score points in FPL?

Goalkeepers have several ways of scoring points in FPL 2024-25. The most rewarding way is through goals as goalkeepers will earn six points for every goal scored; however, scoring a goal is fairly unlikely for a goalkeeper.

The more obvious, and frequent, way is to not concede. Goalkeepers will earn four points for every clean sheet they earn. Furthermore, if they save a penalty, they will score five points.

If a goalkeeper assists a goal they will score three FPL points (the same as every other position), while they will score two points if they play more than 60 minutes (excluding added-time). They will score one point if they play up to 60 minutes.

Goalkeepers can also score save points. For every three saves a goalkeeper makes in a game, they will earn one FPL point.

The final way goalkeepers can score points is through the FPL bonus points system. According to the official FPL website, this is how bonus points are allocated: “They [bonus points] are devised and allocated post-match according to a Bonus Points System (BPS).

"The BPS utilises a range of statistics supplied by Opta that capture actions on the pitch, to create a performance score for every player.

"The players with the top three BPS in a given match receive bonus points - three points to the highest-scoring player, two to the second best and one to the third.”

Goalkeepers can also lose points if they concede two or more goals in a match, if they receive a yellow or red card, if they miss a penalty or if they score an own goal.

Who was the most expensive FPL goalkeeper in 2023-24?

Liverpool’s Alisson, Man City’s Ederson and Newcastle’s Nick Pope were all tied for the honour of being the most expensive goalkeeper in the 2023-24 edition of Fantasy Premier League.

All three players were priced at £5.5m.

Behind that trio, there were seven goalkeepers who cost £5m at the start of FPL 2023-24 - Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jose Sa, Hugo Lloris, Emiliano Martinez, Andre Onana, Aaron Ramsdale, David Raya and Guglielmo Vicario.
