Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has managed to get more shots on target than Manchester United's Jesse Lingard in the Premier League 2019-20 season so far. The 36-year-old goalkeeper was very close in grabbing the equaliser against Chelsea off Gerard Deulofeu's beautiful ball in the box. Ben Foster positioned himself perfectly in Chelsea's box and muscled a powerful header towards the goal but Kepa somehow managed to keep the ball out of the box. Chelsea are currently in the fourth spot of the Premier League table with 23 points in 11 games.

Kepa's last-minute save helped Chelsea earn another three points and denied Watford's chance to level the game. Watford are yet to clinch a win this season but the talking point is that their goalkeeper has more shots on target than the 26-year-old Jesse Lingard. According to British media reports, Lingard has only four shots so far this season and none of them have been on target so far. But in Lingard's defence, he has not enjoyed many minutes on the field this season. He has appeared eight times this season and has not scored a single goal. Lingard has featured in 36 matches for Manchester United last season and only bagged five goals and four assists.
