Hugo Lloris replacement Lopes of Lyon is the king of Ligue 1 goalkeepers in 2014/15

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

After Lloris left for Spurs, young Anthony Lopes took over and is now among the best goalkeepers in France.

Here is a rundown of the top five goalkeepers in Ligue 1 this season, including Lyon's Anthony Lopes - who had the unenviable task of replacing Tottenham Hotspur-bound Hugo Lloris back in 2012.

#5 Geoffrey Jourdren: Montpellier HSC

He may not look like a commanding goalkeeper, but hometown hero Jourdren has enjoyed a wonderful season with La Paillade.

He got himself into some trouble by slagging off his attacking teammates, but it doesn't take away from how vital he has been to Rolland Courbis side.

#4 Benjamin Lecomte: FC Lorient

In a struggling Lorient side, playing in his first season as the club's No.1, Lecomte stood up to the task and surprised a few people this season.

His agility, reflexes and command of his area were a huge boost to new boss Sylvain Ripoll. Without the 24-year-old, they may not have survived the drop.

#3 Stephane Ruffier: Saint-Etienne

France's No.3 was solid and dependable again this season. He may not be as spectacular as others, there is still the odd mistake, but he is one of the reasons behind Les Verts excellent defensive record.

#2 Danijel Subasic: AS Monaco

Last season, no-one thought much of Subasic as a top Ligue 1 goalkeeper. This campaign, in both the league and Champions League, he has been phenomenal.

Outstanding reflexes and a penchant for the spectacular, there are no longer calls for Monaco to sign a big-name stopper.

#1 Anthony Lopes: Olympique Lyonnais

It is sometimes easy to play as a goalkeeper in a very good, attacking team, but Lopes has been tremendous.

It's not just the saves that he makes, but it's the timing and importance.

His performances against Marseille and PSG at home played a huge part in their title challenge. The Portuguese keeper has a huge future ahead of him.
