Ledley King insists we’re lucky to have three goalkeepers of the highest quality at the club.

Ledley King insists we’re lucky to have three goalkeepers of the highest quality at the club.

Carlo Cudicini produced one of the outstanding individual displays at Rubin Kazan in the Europa League on November 3.

Brad Friedel followed up three days later with a string of fine saves as we held on under intense pressure for a 3-1 win in the Premier League at Fulham.

Meanwhile, Heurelho Gomes has been faultless in his three starts this season – all clean sheets against Hearts and Rubin Kazan in Europe and Stoke City in the Carling Cup, where the scoreline stayed goalless after extra time and we eventually went out on penalties.

“We’ve got three top goalkeepers,” said centre-back Ledley, who has started seven of our 10 league matches in front of Brad.

“I watched Carlo against Rubin Kazan and he was fantastic. He keeps himself in great shape.

“Gomes has been brilliant in training, working hard every day and is a top goalkeeper.

“Brad with all his experience has settled the back four down, we’re lucky we can rely on three goalkeepers with great experience at any time.”
