Courtois down in seventh.

With an overall index score of 255, EA Sports rank Hugo Lloris as the top stoppper in the Premier League. West Ham's Adrian is perhaps a surprise in 2nd place, while David de Gea makes up the top three.

Although not entirely clear from the above image, EA Sports take a number of key performance indicators into account leading to a final score. The below explanation is taken from the official Premier League site.

The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index (EA SPORTS PPI) is designed to settle such disputes by using a comprehensive range of statistics to provide objective analysis about which players are the best and why. The EA SPORTS PPI is the only official player rating index of the Barclays Premier League which measures a player's all round contribution to the success of his team using six key indices. The intention is to remove any opinion bias and only work with proven statistical measurements which become more accurate as the season progresses.

Lloris has been in great form for his side this season, making 73 saves and keeping 5 clean sheets in 22 matches.
