There was a game a while back and I thnk 4 went in. For some reason i think it was Newcastle. Both keepers were injured and an outfield player went in, proved to be crap so they swapped him. Beardsley may have gone in. Or maybe I am wrong

Edit - googled it and got this
) PETER BEARDSLEY PLAYS EMERGENCY 'KEEPER AND IS ABSOLUTELY RUBBISH

The former England and Newcastle star is more fondly recalled for his goal scoring antics rather than his ability to keep the ball out of the net. And nothing changed that fact during the Magpies 8-1 humiliation against West Ham at Upton Park in 1986. Beardsley was Newcastle's third goalkeeper of the evening and was so poor that even talkSPORT's very own Alvin Martin, a defender, managed to bag a hat-trick.

Another Edit - it was 3 not 4 keepers

Didn't Chelsea have 3 when Cech injured his skull, and then the sub keeper got hurt in the last few mins, obviously it was Super JT who went in net.

I may be wrong, like.

From a slightly different angle I remember a City v Everton game in May 1993 (I think it was the last game of the season) when all 4 keepers were used. Margetson started for City but was absolute dogshit. He was flapping at crosses so much that Everton just played for corners which Hinchcliffe swung in causing chaos. Dibble replaced him for the second half. Everton started with Southall in goal but replaced him with a young Australian lad called (I think) Kearton. It was also almost certainly the only time 3 Welsh keepers featured in a Premier League game. City lost 5-2. Happy days.
