Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier nominated for Premier League Save of the Month

Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier has been nominated for the Premier League Save of the Month award for March.

Meslier emerged from his goalline and stuck out a strong right arm to thwart Kai Havertz from close range during Leeds' 1-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on March 4.

The Frenchman comes up against Wolves stopper Jose Sa for a fingertip save to deny Tottenham Hotspur winger Dejan Kulusevski, and West Ham's Alphonse Areola who tipped Julio Enciso's strike onto the crossbar.

Also in contention are Brentford goalkeeper David Raya; Arsenal's Aaron Ramsdale, and Fraser Forster of Tottenham Hotspur. You can vote for your favourite on the Premier League's official website before 12pm on Monday, March 27.

The winner, which will be announced next week, will be determined by a combination of the supporters' vote and the selections from a panel of experts.

Meslier was previously nominated in August 2022 for his save to deny Leander Dendoncker in the opening day win over Wolves, but the award was ultimately handed to Newcastle United's Nick Pope.
