Hugo Lloris

Premier League boasts four of top five 'keepers at Euro 2016 with mentions for Crystal Palace and Chelsea but no room for Spurs or Arsenal stars.

While Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris leads hosts France out in the tournament's opening match against Romania, he doesn't even make the top 10 based on performances during qualifying.

Neither does Arsenal star Petr Cech, one of the most respected goalkeepers of the last decade.

But there are plenty of other top stoppers flying the flag for the Premier League representing their countries at the finals in France which kick off tonight with the game between the hosts and Romania.

Manchester City's Joe Hart will wear the number one jersey for England, Crystal Palace's Wayne Hennessey is Chris Coleman's choice in-between the sticks for Wales, while for Poland Swansea City's Lukasz Fabianski and Arsenal's Wojciech Szczesny, on loan at Roma, tussle for the Polish number one spot.

Cech the stats

Gunners veteran Cech will line up in goal for the Czech Republic, Manchester United's David de Gea will be looking to take the Spanish number one spot from under the nose of Iker Casillas, Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois takes up the reigns for Belgium, while Stoke City's Shay Given and West Ham's Darren Randolf will be looking to be named the Republic of Ireland's number one.

With so much goalkeeping talent on show from the Premier League, football statistics website Oulala has produced a detailed analysis of how every keeper fared during qualifying for their respective nations to establish who is the best.

Wales' Wayne HennesseyWales' Wayne Hennessey

5) Wayne Hennessey - Wales and Crystal Palace

Kept seven clean sheets from 10 games in qualifying to help Wales to their first major tournament since 1958.

The Eagles 'keeper only conceded four goals at an average of 0.4 a game and takes fifth place in the table.

4) Thibaut Courtois - Belgium and Chelsea

From eight games in qualifying, Courtois kept five clean sheets and conceded only three goals at a rate of 0.38 per game to come fourth in the list.

The Chelsea man had indifferent season for his club but will be looking to play his part for his tournament title hopefuls.

3) Joe Hart - England and Manchester City

Manchester City star Hart kept the same number of clean sheets (seven) as Hennessey but from one less game (nine) and like Courtois only conceded three goals in that time, an average of just 0.33 per game.

It is enough to put Hart third on the list of the best 'keepers at Euro 2016 and England fans will be hoping he continues his stellar form to lead the Three Lions to a first taste of glory in half a century.

2) Ciprian Tatarusanu - Romania and Fiorentina

Romanian stopper plies his trade in Italy's Serie A with Fiorentina but just edges Hart for the number two spot as he has kept the same number of clean sheets from the same number of matches, but conceded only two goals, an average of 0.22 per game.

1) David de Gea - Spain and Manchester United

Although he has played far less games - just three to be precise - Red Devil de Gea is the top dog with a 100% unbeaten record of three games, three clean sheets.

It is enough to earn him top spot in the table but bizarrely the Old Trafford favourite may not even play at the Euros with Spain boss Vicente del Bosque yet to decide between him and Iker Casillas between the sticks for the defending champions.
